I am not religious in the traditional sense but something about baptism has always intrigued me. I liked the idea of gathering to honour and protect  a new baby  through ceremony. Having a naming ceremony was the perfect fit for us as a family.  Standing in a circle, with those near and dear to us giving wishes  to our child, was magical. It helped bring the phrase "It takes a village to raise a child"  take shape in our lives. Thank you so much for  your creative inspiration, the songs and words shared during the ceremony still echo in my heart.

We had thought long and hard about what name to give our baby and the ceremony helped empower our choice with a touch of sacredness.
