Question from KG - Henry VIII's godchildren

Do we know the names of all/any of Henry VIII's godchildren, and how he fulfilled this role?

Hi I just finished reading a book about Charles Brandon by Sarah Bryson..I am pretty sure unless I read it wrong that Henry was a godfather to one if not all of Brandon's sons.

I believe I remember reading another book where it stated he was godfather to one of Thomas Moores sons too.

I am sure there were more, but I cannot think of them off the top of my head.

I was just reading a book which states that Henry was one of the godfathers of the first son of Thomas Berkeley, 6th Baron Berkeley and Ann Savage, he was born a couple of months after his fathers death and was named for Henry
