Because now I'll have to endure idiots asking if I named my DD1 (4 months old) after the Princess and my DD's name, which was chosen with care because it is traditional and classic, is going to suddenly become "super popular" with the masses.

It happened for the first time yesterday admittedly she was an American tourist who was admiring my PFB I was asked "Did you name her after the new Royal baby?" No, she's 4 months old you cretin

Why couldn't they have called her something original like "Pasturella Venus" or Channel (deliberately spelt wrong)-Beyonce?

FFS! angry

Her name's only just been released today confused.

If you're that pissed off, change it.

No one owns a name remember. wink

You sound very angry, calm down.

We'll my teenage dd is the original princess charlotte so no I am glad they choose such a beautiful name. grin

Get a grip OP, nobody owns a name. "Super popular" with the masses. Charming.

And Will and Kate probably chose the name with care too.

I actually dont like the name Charlotte so stick that one in your hole.

I think Charlotte has consistently been a popular name so hopefully it will be less so than if she'd had an unusual name (I have a cousin Beatrix who is a couple of months older than that princess and she got that all the time). Charlotte is a lovely name anyway.

Oh dear, made up thread for a bit of attention. Best to hide it OP

LemonYellowSun Mon 04-May-15 15:39:16

Its quite a popular name anyway isnt it confused

QuietTiger Mon 04-May-15 15:39:27

I know-we were out at a museum and whilst eating lunch, an American tourist sat at our table because there was no room elsewhere. We got on to the subject of the Royal baby, she was asking about names, which one did I think they would choose, blah, blah, and she asked if I'd chosen Charlotte because the Royals were considering it.

I was confused

DH had to get up and find an excuse to walk away the coward

How where you asked that yesterday?

It's a lovely choice of name.

Yeesss Mon 04-May-15 15:40:10

Seriously, get a life. You don't own the name. Did you name your PFB after my DD1 who is older than yours? Just....sad!

StillStayingClassySanDiego Mon 04-May-15 15:40:13

DH had to get up and find an excuse to walk away, why?

I have a teen Charlotte. It's a lovely name and befits a drama queen, if my DD is anything to go by. grin

DesperatelySeekingSedatives Mon 04-May-15 15:40:36

Charlotte may be a classic name but its already a popular one. I can think of at least 8 charlottes I know personally who range in age from 35ish down to babies.

You need to calm the fuck down really.

MissDemelzaCarne Mon 04-May-15 15:40:59

YABU and a bit of a snob hmm

AgentCooper Mon 04-May-15 15:41:32

Sorry OP, I'm relieved it wasn't Alice as that's one of my prospective choices (and my staunchly republican Mum's name)! grin

Mintyy Mon 04-May-15 15:42:02

OM actual G at this ludicrous op.

Katiepoes Mon 04-May-15 15:42:18

Has been popular in Holland for decades. I know about 6 of varying ages too.

Pantone363 Mon 04-May-15 15:42:18


Charlottes are ten to the the dozen OP
