OMG! It looks like Kate Middleton’s nude lounging paid off in the baby-making department because the Duchess is totally preggers with Prince William’s heir. I’d like to be the first person to say congratulations, but since there’s no way I’ll be the first person to say that, I’ll just sit over here in America behind my laptop and be cool. And speaking of cool (COOL SEGUE!) — the young royals are obviously going to be racking their brains trying to come up with the perfect baby name for their little prince or princess. It’s got to be something that honors tradition and yet simultaneously breaks the mold and carries a stamp of modernity to represent the monarchy in the new millennium.
Of course Wills and Kate could choose a family name like Henry, William or Charles for a boy or a modest name like Elizabeth, Catherine or Mary for a girl, but methinks having an auntie called Pippa raises the stakes in this baby’s naming game. The tiniest Windsor has got to have a name that’s cute, fresh, individual and nostalgic. In other words, the same kind of name hip parents all over the world are searching for from obscurity.
I’ve combed through royal names from the houses of Tudor, Hanover and Windsor, and I’ve come up with a killer list that should help Will and Kate narrow things down. If you’re looking for a baby name, you can take a peek at this list, too. I promise I won’t tell the Queen.
