Name certificate ceremony for infants at Tallinn Town Hall

Name certificate ceremony for infants at Tallinn Town Hall

There is a long-standing tradition in Tallinn to hold name certificate ceremonies for newborns. The infant and their family receive a name certificate and gifts at the Tallinn Town Hall. The event is intended for newborns and their parents who reside in Tallinn.

During the first half of the year, the city will hold four name certificate ceremonies:

  • 23 January 2024
  • 12 March 2024
  • 09 April 2024
  • 14 May 2024
Tallinn welcomes all families who wish to attend the ceremony.

If you wish to partake in the event, please send an email a month after your child's birth to [email protected]. The email should include:
  1. the child's name and national identification number;
  2. licence plate number if you arrive by car (necessary to provide free parking at Town Hall Square);
  3. the birth order of the child;
  4. phone number.

Since the number of seats in the Town Hall is limited, the Tallinn Vital Statistics Department will send you an electronic invitation if they have confirmed your attendance.

The electronic invitation ensures your entrance to the event. It will be sent to your email address after you have provided the information requested above.
