French Canadian Children's Naming Conventions

Classification: Birth
Would appreciate any info on typical naming conventions and selection of godparents in French Canadian RC families during 18th and 19th centuries. For example, for whom would a first son be named - his own father, his paternal grandfather, or ??? Also,is it likely a child's grandparent would stand as its godparent at baptism??
