Baby Namings

Baby Naming | Independent Celebrant | ScotlandThe birth of a baby is such a special moment in the life of any parent, that most families want to mark the occasion with something joyful and memorable. However, a growing number of people are choosing to with so many people choosing to live a life without religion, most don't want to have a traditional christening, and so don't know how to celebrate the new arrival.

Baby Blessings are a lovely way to celebrate your new arrival. You can hold a naming ceremony wherever you want: at home, in the garden, at a favourite spot, a village hall... it's up to you.

You can also choose when to have the ceremony. There's no rush, you can celebrate a few weeks after the birth, or you can wait and have a combined first birthday/ naming ceremony. Some couples choose to conduct joint naming ceremonies for siblings, and you could even have a joint ceremony with friends who have also had a baby. It's your ceremony, done your way.

A typical naming ceremony might include readings or poems, music or words written by you for your child (I can help you with this) and a promise made by the parents. You might also choose to include a symbolic act such as planting a tree, writing in a wish book or filling a time capsule.

As part of your naming ceremony, I will meet you at a time and place to suit, to get to know you and baby, and to get an idea of what you want from the occasion. I will then write a unique ceremony based on your wishes. All my ceremonies are completely bespoke, so you can be sure that the ceremony I create for you will be one of a kind. You will receive a copy of this before the ceremony and can make changes or ask me to edit it based on your feedback.

On the day itself, I will conduct the ceremony and afterwards you will be given a bound copy of the ceremony script to keep as a reminder of this special day.
