We love the idea of naming ceremonies at Celebrants of Brisbane.
“I think naming ceremonies are a special opportunity for families to recognize and celebrate the individuality of their child. This can be achieved without adhering to any one system of belief. It is like a ‘welcome to this world dear soul’ with no expectations as to the traditions of pomp and ceremony.” says Carleen.
Some people think that a religious baptism or christening is their only choice. However, these days it is not unusual to see differences of beliefs even within a family. A naming ceremony can be a neutral solution to this problem.
Naming ceremonies can be found in cultures all all over the world. From tribes in Africa to villages of south east asia, celebrating the birth of a child is an important rite of passage for all. Naming ceremonies are significant and specialised because every ceremony is crafted for the uniqueness of the child it is being held for, says Carleen and a child can be any age.
The naming of your child is a celebration, says Carleen and a ceremony can be a simple affair or as elaborate and creative as you want.
Let’s get together – choose a date and location – and co-create a naming ceremony for a child in your family.
