A naming ceremony is a wonderful way to welcome a newborn, an adopted child or step-child into your family and your community.
This is ideal for parents who wish to celebrate a child’s arrival with a non religious ceremony. It is the perfect way to express hopes, wishes and dreams as we look to a future and all the possibilities that will unfold in that child’s lifetime.
You are probably thinking they cant have Godparents as its not a christening in religious setting. Instead you can have Guideparents or Guardians will take the honoured position of promising to support and guide your child through their lives. Poems, reading and symbolic elements, can all form part of this wonderful welcoming ceremony.
Grandparents still get to play their parts too, as they make their promises to their new grandchild or granchildren
