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?

2 of the 3 names are my husbands name!

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

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.

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

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

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

Just Boy. No other names needed in DD land.

Spike is a good strong name?

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

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

Boy George Phillip Mountbatten Charles Edward Wales. Love it.

kreecherlivesupstairs Mon 22-Jul-13 23:23:42

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