Are the parents both english? In england it is usually just like a party celebrating the child (christening without religion) but my cousin and his wife had a naming day for their daughter and there were all sorts of special things and traditions that had to be carried out and was a proper service and stuff, is really celebrated in Bulgaria where her mum is from

Oh, and yes I would get a present :) - if you cant get a naming day card just get a nice blank card and write naming day in it

we went my cousins baby naming ceremony a few weeks ago , it was lovely, they had it in a posh hotel and basically its a way of naming the baby without the churchy bit tbh, but a bit more personal as parents/grandparents etc can make a speech if want to ! But all in all treat it on similar lines to a christening , ( imo its another exuse for a family p...up , lol, for our fam anyway !) so yeh would be polite to buy a gift/put money in card ( thats what we done for babies bank acc!)

thats exactly what it is and also like most christenings nowadays.

Last 5 christenings we have been too, the families were not even churchgoers

Just see it as a baby welcoming ceremony, that's what it is.

still go to church, haven't had our kids christened due to the fact they can choose their own faith later on in life, whatever that may be
