Life Ceremonies

NAMING CEREMONIES

Naming ceremonies are for everyone!

Most commonly, parents wanting to welcome your precious arrival to the world will plan a naming ceremony as a modern and secular alternative to a christening or baptism. Trans men and women also may have a desire to have a naming ceremony to declare themselves to the world and celebrate their chosen name and true identity. You may have decided to change your name by deedpoll for another reason and want to gather your nearest and dearest together to celebrate this new beginning.

A proper welcome to the world is often overlooked as unnecessary, but I disagree. A naming ceremony, whether it is for you or your child, is an opportunity to stand up and say, ‘This is me!’ and for your community to pledge their love and support to you. A name is a gift chosen for us or by us, contemplated carefully for its meaning and sound, please celebrate the name, it’s important!

INCLUSIONS
