Naming Ceremonies

Naming ceremonies are becoming more and more popular as an alternative to a religious christening, for babies and adults alike. The ceremony is a means of introducing a new member of your family to your loved ones, while affording you the opportunity to give certain members of your circle the honour – and responsibility – of becoming a ‘godparent’ or non-religious alternative, such as ‘mentor’, ‘guardian’ or ‘guide parent’.  

As an adult, a naming ceremony can be a powerful statement of a name change – for multiple reasons. Perhaps you have transitioned. Or maybe you have simply adopted a new name which better reflects who you have become. It would be my privilege to help you take charge of your future by creating an individual, personalised ceremony for you to hold amongst the people you love.
