Naming Day, Christening or Baptism?

A christening is a Christian blessing which usually involves baptism. Baptism is a ritual where a baby is initiated into the church congregation when water is sprinkled or poured over the head of the baby – or in some cases where the baby is immersed in holy water for a second or two.

Each religion has its own ceremony and for those skipping religion a Naming Day is very common.
