We are family!
Naming days with Meg Stanier Celebrant

A naming ceremony is a special celebration to introduce your baby/child to the world.

As a naming celebrant, I will meet your family, get to know you and write a script to fit your wishes for the day. A naming or welcoming ceremony can be done at any location you choose. Special elements, readings and music can be discussed to fit your theme.


If you're looking for an independent naming celebrant in the North East or Yorkshire please get in touch!

Adding Symbolic Elements to your Naming Ceremony

Family Portrait

Choosing an element for your naming ceremony. 

Adding 'special elements' to a naming ceremony makes the day even more unique, these can be discussed and personalised to suit your theme/wishes. 

Prices start from £30 per element.

Here are some ceremony ideas!

Circle of love and unity 
Everyone holds hands to create a circle around the family unit as the naming takes place, to 'lock in' their commitment to love and protect the child always.
Best Wishes Box 
Everyone has a small card to write on their hopes and wishes for the child and the family. Before the naming ceremony they place the cards into the box and the family opens them at a time of their choosing.
The Naming Ribbon  
The friends/family present stand in a circle, a ribbon is tied to the child's wrist, or held by the parents. This is then unravelled and handed to each person present until the ribbon is held by everyone around the circle, finishing with the child. This is to show the support/love/commitment of everyone present, the 'naming' of your child can also be incorporated into this element of the naming ceremony. 
Sand Ceremony 
Sand, of differing colours, are poured into a jar to show commitment to your child, the different colours intertwined symbolises a bond that can never be broken. Any members present can take part in this ceremony e.g. grandparents, life mentors, parents, other children.
