This seems like a distinction with no difference -- in my tradition, anyway.  (Perhaps there is such a thing as non-Christian baptism? :-) I would say it is a matter of your personal preference, but it's probably best to decide on one and use it consistently. 

Does the same choice exist in the German language?

Dear all,

I am a German GRAMPS user, and was wondering whether there is a
difference between "Baptism" and "Christening". Both Events are
possible, and I was wondering, whether I am recording everything correctly.
