So what kind of ceremony is appropriate.
We've just had our new name confirmed by the registration mob just a coupla hours ago: Sea Life

So we are a bit all funny feeling at the moment.

As for ceremony... I would have an Aboriginal friend do it if we were at home. They do a smoking ceremony where smoke from native trees and bushes wards off evil spirits. I kinda like that

Maybe we will find an indiginous culture somewhere in our travels who can do it
