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?

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'.

How about Kane-Burley? Has a nice ring?

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.

Boy George Phillip Mountbatten Charles Edward Wales. Love it.

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

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

Bridget grin

Spike is a good strong name?

kreecherlivesupstairs Mon 22-Jul-13 23:47:06

Just Boy. No other names needed in DD land.

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

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.
