Jewish naming ritual

Hello. I'm doing a story that involves a child born to both a Jewish and a Christian parent and I need to know the details that happen during the naming ceremony. I've looked at about.com, but all they tell is the story behind the ritual/tradition. What i need to know is

- about what age is this performed?
- are babies not given a middle name in order to later claim the Hebrew name?
- how many people are usually at this ceremony, and what relation are they to the child?

Thanks for any help!
