To christen (because a name is given to infants at their baptism); to give a name to; to name.
administer baptism to; "The parents had the child baptized"
to put someone in water, or to put water on them, as a sign of receiving them as a Christian
to wash or apply water. Jesus commanded us to baptize in the name of the Triune God (Matthew 28:19). Because God's Word is joined to the water in Christian baptism the Holy Spirit works through this sacrament to create faith (Titus 3:5-7). In baptism we have forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38,39), life (John 3:3-6), and salvation (1 Peter 3:21).
