I have been told that a naming ceremony is a good, non-religious alternative to a christening. Has anyone been to one, held one, or otherwise know the sort of promises/vows the parents make? Any help would be much appreciated :o)What are the parent promises in a baby naming ceremony?
The parents make vows that they will love and nurture the child throughout it's life. They can also make vows that they will love and support each other.
I went to one recently at a register office, the parents wrote their own vows, they also wrote a little speech describing why they chose they name that they did. It was all very lovely and means that you don't miss out on a ceremony for your child if you're not religious.What are the parent promises in a baby naming ceremony?

I don't know of any set rules; just say what you feel expresses your feelings towards your child. You could make promises to keep him/her safe, happy and always to know that you love and care, that you will try to make sure that they never have to doubt your great love for them and that you will always put them first....
