George Alexander Louis?
On behalf of William and Kate and the entire royal family…
I’m sorry, Royal Baby.
I know there is a long history of King Georges — six, in fact — but all I see when I hear the name “George” is George Costanza of Seinfeld infamy. And while he was a great TV sitcom character, I wouldn’t wish a son like him on William and Kate.
Or anyone, really.
Now, if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had gone with “Alexander” as a first name, I would be all over that. Maybe they are planning to call you by your middle name. Most of the kids I grew up with were called by their middle names. I always found it kinda odd…like their parents couldn’t make up their minds. But I would gladly support it in this instance.
If not — if they decide to go with George — well, I return to my previous submission –

I’ve heard of people naming their kids after their parents, their grandparents or good friends…maybe even a celebrity or two.
But a dog?
Yep. 4BoyMom is pregnant with her fourth child and wants to name him Jasper, which was the name of their dog and “first child,” who passed away some five years ago. One of the main reasons she is considering the name is that they have moved away from the town where they had the dog, so no one in their current city will make the connection.
Granted, dogs are some of the best people I know. And I am the first to blur the lines between the two. But even I have to admit…this is one family story that would be a little difficult to tell around the Thanksgiving table. And how exactly do you document that on the family tree?
Personally, I’ve questioned friends who’ve reused the same dog name in their family. (For example, they’ve had Oscar I, II and III.) To have both a dog and a human named the same thing in the same family?
Creepy. Weird. Crosses a line, even for me.
(Rory agrees with me, by the way.)
