Naming Ceremony


Welcoming a new baby into the world is a remarkable achievement.  

Becoming a parent is something you've dreamed about and now it's a reality and you want to celebrate. 

A naming ceremony is a great alternative to a church based blessing. 

What is a naming ceremony? 

A naming day ceremony is created especially to celebrate the arrival of your little one, and provide a chance for family and friends to come together and celebrate. 


It focuses on the relationship between you and your child and allows you and your family to share your hopes and dreams for the their future.

Does your child name have a special significance? 


Has it been passed down through generations of a loving family, or chose to be as unique as their personality ?

Many parents use the ceremony as a chance to make promises for their child and a chance to appoint guide parents who will help support you and your child on their adventures through life.

Does it have to be non- religious?

A Celebrant led naming ceremony can be non religious, very religious or even blend multiple religions together. 

It's completely up to you.

The most important thing is that every ceremony is completely different and totally personalised to fit you and your family. 

What can my ceremony include? 

Welcoming your guests

Reflecting on the impact your child has had on your life

What being a new parent means to you

The story behind your child's name

Readings, poems, music or symbolic actions

Parents and guide parents promises

The naming of your child

Signing the certificate

A toast

The best naming ceremonies combine all the spectacle of a religious event like a christening

but with a more personalised, relaxed approach. 

Your ceremony can be whatever you want it to be.
