A naming ceremony is a special moment to welcome and celebrate a new life, embrace a rite of passage, or mark a new beginning. You deserve a ceremony that’s truly personal and meaningful to you and your loved ones. And it will resonate with your deepest beliefs and values, led by a celebrant who understands them.
Your humanist celebrant will help you create a personalised, non-religious ceremony that is unique to you and your family. Humanist naming ceremonies are a thoughtful and meaningful choice for celebrating a new addition to your family.
‘I had never heard of a naming ceremony before attending one for a friend’s child a few years ago. It was so emotional and so pure and so lovely. I was pregant at the time and my husband and I just looked at each other! We knew we needed to have the same thing… It was a perfect day that I’ll never forget.’
