I was raised Presbyterian and it was never a big thing in our church. I think it depends on your church, and to a certain extent, your presbytery. And of course, your parents.Momma to J and A said:Yes. Episcopalians do. United Methodists do. Presbyterians do. United Church of Christ (UCC) do. I guess those are the only groups with whom I have direct experience.
ETA: godparents are optional.
