What is a secular naming ceremony?
A secular naming ceremony, also known as a “Baby welcoming ceremony” or a “child dedication ceremony” is a non-religious celebration of the birth of your child.
This ceremony can take place when your child is a newborn or when your child is slightly older. The advantage of having your child be older is that they can partake in the festivities, which we know children love to do!
This celebration represents the joy and family bond that you have with your new child. Not only is it a chance to share this significant moment in your life with those you love most, but it allows you to express the meaning and purpose you choose to give this child in life.
A baby naming ceremony is also a wonderful way to welcome an adopted child into the family.
