  • Didn’t have them myself and haven’t chosen any – most people only have them in their life for their christening it seems

  • Godparent are supposed to be good role models for your child and can be asked to take over the role of parent if something happens to the actual parents. I would look for good qualities, are they self sufficient, would they be good for/with my child etc

  • It will have to be family or a close family friend for me.

  • chose people that you trust your children’s lives on because that is what a godparent represents essentially

  • Choose people who will be around for the long haul, someone you’re not likely to have a falling out with.

  • Who every u think would b capable and raise them ur way. Or the way u would approve of

  • I would only pick family.

  • Definitely family or close friends

  • traditionally they were chosen to help the children in a religious way.. they are not guardians.

  • We chose life long friends as there weren’t any practising Catholic family members available. Traditionally, god parents are meant to support you in the moral and spiritual upbringing of your children, through that doesn’t really happen so much these days. We just picked people we thought would look out for our son and who he could confide in later if he ever needed to.

  • family or close life-long friends I’d choose

  • I chosen family members. I just think they are first priorities

  • The traditional role is to be a guide role model to them & if anything were ever to happen to you the god parents would raise the children.

  • I chose a family member and a close friend who is a wonderful mother to her kids. I would choose someone that I know I can trust 100% with my kids and they will always have their best interests at heart.

  • I think close friends make the best god parents.
