A Humanist Naming Ceremony




"This is beautifully written and edited, I'm extremely impressed, and was genuinely moved."

Ginny Collins Ceremonies Development and Training Manager, Humanists UK

Humanism is a non-religious belief system. Humanists are people who shape their own lives in the here and now, because they believe it’s the only life we have. They make sense of the world through logic, reason, and evidence, and always seek to treat those around them with warmth, understanding, and respect.

And just like with other belief systems, they have important ceremonies too. Watch Ivy experience her naming ceremony, with the key features explained, while her parents discuss the Humanist principles they want to instill in her.
