By now you all know that His Royal Highness has been born to William and Kate. His name, though, they say “may take some time.” Don’t worry —
I’m all over it.
It’s a worthy name; the Greek translation is “venerable.” It began to be widely used in the third century after it was the name of a Christian martyr…so it’s certainly manly enough.
Sebastian also has British ties. It’s in the Top 100 list of boy’s names. Sebastian Cabot is a British actor; Sebastian Faulks, a British writer. And there are characters named Sebastian in popular British fiction, including Sherlock Holmes and Brideshead Revisited.
Most importantly, I like it.
Look, I’m only trying to expedite the process. Princess Diana and Prince Charles took seven days to name William; William and Kate took three weeks to name their dog, Lupo; and Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip took a month to name Charles.
Let’s not give the child an identity crisis!
