ok so i couldnt answer because our story is complicated. im jewish and hubbs is catholic. my son had a bris and than we were supposed to get him baptized, but my husband has been dragging ass for the last 3 years (yes my son will be three next saturday and hes still not baptized!! *horror gasp*) so anyways, i chose godparents becuase he wouldnt too, but the people i chose said they "were too busy and already had other godchildren", the second couple screwed us over financially and now we are stuck. i want my best friend to be his godfather, we have been best friends since we were 14, hes catholic. i asked me husband he said absolutly not. i even offered to have his sister as godmother with my friend being the godfather, he said no, i do not understand the concept of godparents, which is bullcrap. he really wants aiden to make confirmation and all the other stuff but hes so stubborn to every idea i have that hes going to end up not eve being baptized or making confirmation or any other stuff that has to do with my husband religion. so now he can suck it becuase i am sick of having ideas and being shot down.

my daughter doesnt have any God Parents...my bff though will take her if dh and i die and my parents or dh parents are dead.....but i am a God Parent to my bffs 3 kids(4 as soon as she has her new baby). She asked me the day her first son was born to be his God Mother and then asked me if i could be the God Mother to all her children. We dont have it legal but everyone in her family and mine know the kids are my God children.

I had god parents picked out for my son so yes, he would have had godparents. It was my best friend. I am also a godmother to 3 children.

we choose godparents for my son but like some familys we have 2 god mothers for him theres not really a man that we knew of that we would trust at that time so he has his aunt adora and aunt candy. they are each from our sides of the family and we new that if anything happends to us they will both do whats best for our son

depending upon your religion, there may or may not be a formal way to name godparents.  also some non-practicing people may ask people to be godparents w/o going thru a christening or whatever.  we've used friends and family.  it seems to be the kiss-of-death to relationships for us, tho.  our closeness to the individuals has waned in every case and in one, we haven't had any contact in about a decade.  it's probably just me, tho.
