Why perform a reading?
Readings are an excellent way to involve family and friends in
your Naming Day ceremony. You may choose to select a work, excerpt,
poem, prose, verse, or any of the kind of text for your guest
speakers on the day, or you may choose to let the guest speaker
select their own reading.
Whatever your decision, you need to select text that both defines
your roles as parents, and exemplifies your child.
Below is a popular selection of Naming Day readings.
