Congrats Papa Cumberbatch!
I applaud your progeny, especially his carefully crafted Christian name:
Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch
As a CC myself, I recommend it. It’s memorable. It has a nice ring to it. But he may be spelling it the rest of his life.
Of course, with a name like Cumberbatch, that was already in the cards.

I am at a training program in Dallas, and all the materials include my middle name.
Oh, the humanity.
While I worked at Hallmark, we designed a line of greeting cards targeted specifically at the male consumer.
When it came time to name the card line, we brandied about many monikers. At one point, I suggested headlining the display “FREE BEER.”
Give them what they want, right?
I just passed this signboard at a new restaurant in my neighborhood:

I have always liked my oldest brother’s name —
It’s strong. One syllable. And you don’t hear it coming and going.
But when I think about my brother and imagine him personified as an inanimate object, I have to admit this never even cracked the Top 50.
Kent Vase, CB2
You’re way burlier than this, big bro.
