May I or my child be Christened instead of baptized?
"Christening" is an historical term that referred to the giving of a "Christian" name at the time of baptism, whether that person was an infant or an adult. The Christian name would become the person's new first name, a sign that this person is now a new creature in Jesus Christ by water and the Spirit. Christening was thus part of baptism itself and not a separate or different rite.
