In case you are still listening….

George Alexander Louis?

call me whatOn 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

Sebastian.

Might I suggest…

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.

Sebastian

call me whatIt’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!
