Naming Ceremonies

Humanist Naming and Welcoming ceremonies are held to welcome a new life into the family, the community and into the world.

Humanist Naming Ceremonies

At a Humanist Naming/Welcoming ceremony, the family has the opportunity to declare publicly their love for their child and their aspirations for the child’s future.

You can make this declaration among family and friends in a meaningful and significant ceremony – a ceremony that will be carefully crafted in consultation with you by our highly trained and skilled accredited Humanist celebrants.

"We were lucky enough to have Ealish perform our son's welcoming ceremony. She was wonderful, she supported and guided us through the whole process. The ceremony was built entirely around our son and Ealish made sure to make it child friendly - all of our guests were very impressed and wanted her number!"
