Naming ceremony ideas and inspiration

A humanist naming ceremony is a perfect way to celebrate the arrival of a baby, adopted children, or step-children. A naming ceremony brings together family and friends to celebrate and to reflect the role they each will play in the life of your child. For older children, a ceremony can be seen as a rite of passage and a day of celebration.

You can invite friends and relatives to become ‘Guideparents’, and to make individual promises to your child.

Celebrations can vary in length from 20 minutes to all day, and they can be easily combined with a birthday or wedding. Your celebrant will work with you to create a unique ceremony for you and your child.
