Naming ceremonies



Welcoming a new baby into the world is a BIG DEAL.

Becoming a parent might be something you’ve dreamed about for a long time … and now you’ve actually done it. You’ve got yourself a baby – hello sleepless nights and ENDLESS, ETERNAL LOVE!

Starting (or expanding) your family is a major milestone in your life and, if you’re not religious, then the options for marking this event, in a way that feels truly special, might feel a bit limited.

You may be wondering whether a Christening is really the only ‘proper’ way to celebrate your new arrival – after all, it’s what Gran wants. But what else can you do?

… I’m here to show you another way!

Humanist naming ceremonies allow non-religious or mixed-faith parents to welcome their child in a way that feels personal and relevant to the lives that they actually lead.

Every naming ceremony is completely unique and totally personalised for that particular family. But there are some common elements:
  • Welcoming your guests.
  • Reflecting on the effect your child has had on your family and the story behind their name.
  • Considering the challenges of parenthood and what being a new mum or dad means to you.
  • Incorporating readings, music or symbolic actions.
  • Promises made by the Parents and Appointed Guide Parents, Odd Parents, Spare Parents or even ‘Sparents’!
  • The naming itself!

In my mind, the best naming ceremonies combine all the significance and spectacle you’d expect from a religious event, like a Christening, with the informality, joy and laughter of a really good family get together! But… informal, formal, relaxed or chaotic – your naming ceremony is whatever you want it to be. They can take place anywhere that you choose and the ceremony can be organised in a way that is right for you.

Again, that’s what I’m here for: to create a fabulous naming ceremony that works for you and your family.

There are few milestones as important and literally life changing as gender reassignment for anyone who undergoes this transition. Adopting a new name to reflect this is a significant part of their journey, and is a symbol to the world of the change you have made.

What better way to share and celebrate this occasion in a meaningful way, surrounded by those you hold dear than a Naming or Re-Naming ceremony?
