    One auntie from my dad's side and one uncle from my mum's. Both are married with children. So if anything ever happened to my parents, I would have 2 different families with children about the same age as me that would potentially take me in.

    I have four Godparents. One couple are my Grandmother's Sister and Husband (whom I have never met) and the other are my Parents' close Friends who have no children and spend most of Their time travelling - so I rarely see Them either

    I do. I see her all the time as she is also my aunt. Kinda grew up with her. I love my godmother. I love the idea of a godparent. When its done properly at least. I hate those people who baptize children and then never see them again. It's supposed to mean something. And not so much all this Christian stuff. It's supposed to mean that you love this child and will be with it when it needs you.

    I have two. My godmother is my aunt (my Dad's sister-in-law), who I see fairly often. My Godfather is my Mum's brother, who I haven't seen for years and has pretty much cut off contact with us. My two sisters and I were christened at the same time (I was six) and their godparents were uncles/aunts, and we all have a godmother and godfather each. I don't consider myself a Christian now but I think it was still a nice way to do it

    My aunt and uncle, and their daughter (who is a lot older than me- she was 21 when I was born). I didn't know she was my godmother until last year though... no one had ever mentioned it!

    I have 3.

    2 were really good friends of my mother but I haven't seen them since I was 7 years old. The other is my aunt and I haven't had any contact with her since I was 16 (my choice.)

    I was asked my by sister to be the godfather for my nephew but I was only 17 at the time so obviously declined. As for myself, no; I have none.
