Your naming ceremony- the supporting adults

Having a special someone that can be there for your child in an extended parental role offering guidance but without the authority, helps to provide security and reassurance. Knowing that they have a friendly face to turn to that won’t judge them but offer support and encouragment also gives you as parents an extra safety net. A bit like grandparents, mentors can provide another take on life, give objective advice and be there to have fun. Whether you call them Supporting Adults, Mentors or God Parents they can play an important role in your naming ceremony.
