If you’ve been lucky enough to be invited to a baby naming ceremony then you might be looking for a nice greeting or message to write in the card presented, with a gift, to the parents and/or baby on the special day.

It is an honor and a privilege to be considered important enough to the new family to attend their naming day ceremony, so you’ll want to get your naming ceremony wishes just right.

Remember, while the parents will read your wishes now, they will likely keep all of the cards and wishes from the ceremony and share them with the baby once he/she has grown up.

It will be nice for a young adult to look back and see all the people who were there at their naming day ceremony and to reflect on all the kind words and wishes that they shared.

So, no pressure, but you’ll want to get your naming day greetings just right! But, don’t worry, below you will find plenty of examples of baby naming ceremony wishes and quotes so all you’ll have to do is choose the one that you like best! You can even mix and match our examples and change them around to suit the special little baby whose ceremony you are about to attend. 

You have the option of addressing your wishes either directly to the baby or to the baby’s parents. There is no real etiquette around this, you can choose whichever you prefer and/or address it to all 3 (or the whole family if there are more children in the family).

Some people find it cute to address their wishes to the baby, others prefer the more formal approach of addressing them to the parents, who were, after all, the people who invited you to the ceremony.

The options below offer a mixture of wishes addressing either party, choose one according to your needs or change a few words around to make it fit your purpose.
