How? With M, the decision was easy.
Do your children have the same godparents? I don't want to offend M's godparents by not asking them to be H's.

My boys have one godmother the same, as will this baby, but the other two godparents are different. Both have my best friend, Joshua has H's oldest friend and his wife and Jacob has my SIL and her husband. It's likely that this baby will have my best friend, my sister and possibly another friend of H's.

That's good to know Margot. I think I'd like M's godmother to be H's. Then I have someone in mind for her other godmother. Just need to think about godfather.

I think this one will have to have at least one the same, for a boy we were sorted and would have been different but for a girl and needing two godmothers I think we'll end up with the same GM as A plus one other then my 2 brothers for GF.
It's so difficult.

M only has one godmother as I couldn't pick a second without offending others.

Glad you posted this.. What are the rules about godparents is it two of same sex and one of opposite? Or is that an old tradition?

Bexy, I think that is what is suggested but as I mentioned about, Matilda only has one of each and our vicar was fine with that.

N and A will have the same godmother. N has two of my brothers as godfathers (the other one is atheist) and A will have H's best friend.

My boys both have one godfather and two godmothers, our vicar never said anything.

We are probably choosing different for Noodles.
Zoe has one couple, and then a godmother and godfather from different couples (does that make sense) and we are probably going to stick with the same formula but different people.

We tried to only have 1 GF and 1 GM but the church got a bit funny about it and said we'd need to use H as a 2nd GF. Mind you, there's a new vicar now so maybe they'll be more relaxed this time.

C has 2 of my sisters, and my then BIL.
We haven't got J Christened.

We had 2 couples for Big S- my best friend and her now husband and one of H's friends and his partner but in hindsight his friends were a bad choice as they never bother with him at all. This time we'd have a different couple out of H's friends and my friend (you know G Rusty).

G is awesome WH. I so want a night out with her!

S and J have different ones but when it came to the beans I was running out of people who I liked and thought I was actually still going to be friends with in 20 years! So they have the same Godparents

We're having a tough time deciding this and his christening is a couple of weeks away!
The guidelines in our info pack from church say that at least one of each sex is essential; 2 of same sex as child and 1 of opposite is recommened.
