Baby Girl

The Perfect Welcome

Many parents want to mark the arrival of their new baby with a celebration.

A naming ceremony is more than giving the baby its name; it’s an opportunity to affirm your commitment to your child with family and friends around you.

Most families have some sort of party, with the Naming Ceremony at the heart of a memorable day.

You can also choose other adults to support your child. Some families have mentors, others have guide-parents or odd-parents, and others have godless or ungodly parents. It’s up to you.

I conducted the Naming of Elsie Greenway in July 2013 and this ceremony was used by the British Humanist Association to showcase Humanist Namings. You can see the film here:
