We Call You By Your Name


Celebrant or reader: We welcome you among us
All: We call you by your name

Your child’s name here
(first name only, or all names – you choose)

May your name be spoken patiently
and always used with love

We welcome you among us
We call you by your name

Child’s name here

May your name bring delight to your family
and recall joy among your friends

We welcome you among us
We call you by your name

Child’s name here

May you speak your own name with gratitude
for your deepening sense of worth

We welcome you among us
We call you by your name

Child’s name here


May your name one day be the key
that unlocks your true love’s heart

We welcome you among us
We call you by your name

Child’s name here


May your name reflect your special gifts,
your wonderful, blessed self.

We welcome you among us
We call you by your name
