all of my 4dc have 5 god parents one has 6!
None are relatives as it happens as I felt they had to be there anyway! They tend to have 1 couple that's the same for all of them, one couple that's different and one single person of the same gender as them.
I feel that if you come from a big family it's nice that there's something they don't share with their siblings!

not inappropriate at all - and lovely that you want them to be part of your DD's life.
We chose non family members for god-parents as we knew that my siblings would always be part of the DSs' lives so I think it's a good idea! smile

At the mo she will have my sis as godmother and my two brothers in law as godfathers. Do you think having another 2 is a bit much? Sounds daft but I've only known them a couple of years and wondered if it was inappropriate somehow?!

You can have more than one Godmother, so perhaps you could include them smile

I think it's lovely that you would like to recognise their support, officially. I see nothing wrong in asking them to be godmothers smile of the fairy kind, or any other sort smile

I am getting my dd christened soon, and have my sis and bil as godparents. However I have three lovely friends who I've met through school (have two other dc). I have had a tough two years and they have helped and looked after me. I really want them to have a part in dd's life, but is it inappropriate to ask them to be godmothers or could I do something unofficial?
