Secular Naming Ceremony

My Vision

In my vision of a secular naming ceremony, rituals and symbolic gestures are included to illustrate values and key messages. These rituals highlight the bonds between parents, the child, and godparents or other guests you wish to celebrate.

Readings, such as texts or poems, accompanied by music or singing, can enhance the atmosphere. Exchanging gifts is an option, and you may choose to sign a symbolic Godfather/Godmother certificate. Naturally, you'll want to share about your child—how you welcomed them into your world, their character, and interests. The impact a child has on a family is profound and deserves to be acknowledged!

Since everything is customizable, this ceremony reflects your desires, free from the constraints of conventional rules if that's your preference.

Similar to secular wedding ceremonies, the concept behind a secular naming ceremony is to create a completely customized celebration. While these ceremonies may lack legal significance, they hold immense sentimental and symbolic value.

A secular baptism can take place in the location of your choice, whether it be in Switzerland or elsewhere. Imagine hosting it in your own garden if the weather permits. You might opt to involve the godfather or godmother, allowing them to express their commitment to your child. As parents, you can share your thoughts on the responsibilities of this role, and other cherished guests may also speak. During this emotional moment, you'll have the opportunity to convey the values you wish to instill in your child. Consider discussing how the birth of your child has transformed you or delving into the origins of the family and its members, including grandparents and cousins.
