Just had my first baby and I want to call him Kane-Neville Paul, but DH and PILs aren't keen. In fact they've 'forbidden' me from calling him that, and are very insistent that he be called George Edward Philip Mountbatten Charles Alexander Robert Wales, and are citing 'precedent' and 'protocol' and 'national dignity' and yadda yadda yadda. AIBU to tell them to fuck off - I've just squeezed him out my mimsy hole, I've got more stitches than a sprigged muslin tablecloth, and all I want is a blue WKD and to be left in peace. Fuck it, I'm just going to call him Kane-Neville. AIBU?

Hi Kate hmm.

RiotsNotDiets Mon 22-Jul-13 21:44:25

What about Tyler?

BabyILoveYou Mon 22-Jul-13 21:44:39

YABU, the hyphen is soooo tacky.

WorraLiberty Mon 22-Jul-13 21:44:47

WTF is a 'mimsy hole'?

<< Shudders >>

Kaynevle is a shit name, the ils name choice is much better.

Cailinsalach Mon 22-Jul-13 21:45:40

Yanbu. Could you compromise and call him Prince?

Kane-Neville Rooney has a better ring to it. I don't know why it just seems to roll off the tongue better.

MrsKeithRichards Mon 22-Jul-13 21:51:43

Another vote for Tyler

Hi hngmy. Congratulations. I'm curious-what would you have called a girl?

Parisbanana Mon 22-Jul-13 21:54:07

I haven't laughed so much at an OP ever grin

Organza Patrice.

ElephantsAndMiasmas Mon 22-Jul-13 21:56:28

Have you thought about compromising with something like Kallumlicious-Rudolfo?

YABU. Not enough consecutive vowels in that name, and only one punctuation mark.

PoppyWearer Mon 22-Jul-13 21:58:07

Your ILs sound soooooooooo entitled.

(Apologies to previous thread poster who came up with that one!)

Parisbanana Mon 22-Jul-13 21:59:36

I second the name Prince as a compromise...really good idea cailinsalach smile

HootShoot Mon 22-Jul-13 22:00:23

YANBU tell them to keep their beaks out. It's a fab name hun xx

elQuintoConyo Mon 22-Jul-13 22:01:55

How about Rollo ? I think King Rollo has a certain something about it.

Kane-Neville is ok, a little... 'ordinary', for want of a better word? You could really make it stand ahead of the crowd by changing the spelling to K'Nev'L Oh yeah, baby, that's good enough for a King, if I may be so bold!

PippaMiddleton Mon 22-Jul-13 22:02:21

YABU. You PROMISED to call him Philip after me (not your DHs bloody Grandad). angry


Mondaybaby Mon 22-Jul-13 22:02:27

Why don't you go all minimalist and call him just HRH?

Groovee Mon 22-Jul-13 22:02:47

Tyler would be a better name

lessonsintightropes Mon 22-Jul-13 22:07:26

How about Bonnie, to go with Tyler, with maybe Prince in the middle, and Charles as a nod to your b-awful ILs OP? Bonnie Prince Charlie Tyler sounds perfect to me. Didn't you mention your surname was Wales, too?

dufflefluffle Mon 22-Jul-13 22:11:56

How about Wayne-Keanu or sommat sophisticated like that???

hingmy Mon 22-Jul-13 22:14:10

Right, I've decided to compromise. They get their choice of formal name (the bloody snobs) but I get to choose his everyday name. It's HRH. Pronounced 'hrrrr'.

KeepYerTitsIn Mon 22-Jul-13 22:15:07

Your babba, your choice hun xxxxx

BridgetBidet Mon 22-Jul-13 22:16:28

How about Kane-Burley? Has a nice ring?

Edendance Mon 22-Jul-13 22:25:03

What about North like the Kardashians, then he could be North Wales! Sooooooo 'in' right now!

Or Kingsly?
DD is adamant that your babe will be called Boy for some reason.

shinytoe Mon 22-Jul-13 23:32:34

Boy George Phillip Mountbatten Charles Edward Wales. Love it.

BridgetBidet Mon 22-Jul-13 23:36:11

George Michael, cos it took him ages to come out.

ApocalypseThen Mon 22-Jul-13 23:43:03

It's a first baby, you've got to restrain yourself and go tasteful, I think. Bentley-Clayton must be a contender, surely?

HoneyDragon Mon 22-Jul-13 23:45:58

Bridget grin

Spike is a good strong name?

Just Boy. No other names needed in DD land.

GoodTouchBadTouch Mon 22-Jul-13 23:47:12

Riley-Prince? Cos, he is a prince, like?

WandaDoff Mon 22-Jul-13 23:47:58

Rollo grin

GoodTouchBadTouch Mon 22-Jul-13 23:48:55

"George Michael, cos it took him ages to come out."

"all I want is a blue WKD and to be left in peace. Fuck it, I'm just going to call him Kane-Neville."


nennypops Tue 23-Jul-13 00:06:08

Why not go to the other extreme and call him Rupert Cedric

TalkativeJim Tue 23-Jul-13 00:08:58


I think Kevin would be nice grin

CalamityJones Tue 23-Jul-13 06:54:26

I like 'Kong' for a boy.

catgirl1976 Tue 23-Jul-13 07:11:12

Why not call him


I think it's dead regal

GherkinsAreAce Tue 23-Jul-13 07:17:07

Please don't do that.

Le Prince would be much better.

Sokmonsta Tue 23-Jul-13 08:13:24

Quite frankly my dear the child needs a career name. Therefore I suggest Kensington William Charles Michael Phillip Middleton Wales. There are nods to both father, mother, grandfathers and the royal great grandfather as well as a tribute to Diana. He can be known as kensi or ken for short.

North Wales is entirely appropriate given he will reign. Chuckle chuckle.,

Allice Tue 23-Jul-13 17:00:11

2 of the 3 names are my husbands name!
Go for it hun, young Kane-Neville might be an accountant one day like him!
