Naming Ceremonies were created for families wanting to celebrate the arrival of a new child. This non-religious ceremony is an alternative option to a Christening or a Baptism. It can be a way of welcoming him/her and introducing them to family and friends. Naming ceremonies are appropriate for anyone, at any age. It can be a way of uniting step or adopted children within a family, or even announcing an adult name change. There are endless great reasons to hold a naming ceremony. When celebrating the arrival of a new baby, older children in the family can also be recognised and celebrated at the same time. Some Naming Ceremonies are even combined into a Marriage Ceremony.
Naming Ceremonies can include godparents, mentors or guardians. Guests and family members can be involved in the ceremony, with readings and rituals to create a special and personal Ceremony. Most ceremonies last approximately 20-45 minutes depending on the content and rituals chosen.
