Christening or Baptism??

Last Saturday saw the baptism of Baby Sussex.  There was a big hoo-ha in the media over his parents decision to keep this event private.  I was however distracted by the terminology used to describe this occasion.  Through out the day, the word Christening kept popping up on the Radio!

As far as I can remember, nobody I know has ever used the term Christening to describe an infant baptism!!!
