Savannah

Oh.

Can't say I'm overwhelmed with enthusiasm, but as we all know, we all have different tastes.

Hmm, yes, unconventional for a royal. ( that's my diplomatic response)

Oh dearshock.

Highlandgirl Sun 02-Jan-11 20:17:38

That's not official yet....!

Pingpong Sun 02-Jan-11 20:17:45

there must be more .... .the Royals usually have about 14 middle names <perhaps slight exaggeration>
Not keen myself but like your diplomatic response isore

Tis fine, to be honest, not ridiculous and not a traditional royal name, I think it is a good choice, even if I would not have picked it myself.

NewYearNewSolo Sun 02-Jan-11 20:17:49

Like what SGM?

onimolap Sun 02-Jan-11 20:17:55

Saw this on the other thread - is it official now, or still Eastern Daily Press as sole source?

deemented Sun 02-Jan-11 20:18:56

Well... that's.... different...

gallicgirl Sun 02-Jan-11 20:18:56

Really? I've been there and it's lovely but wouldn't use it myself.

It's where they shot parts of Forrest Gump - where he was sat on a bench waiting for a bus.

beanlet Sun 02-Jan-11 20:19:04

Yuk - way too sleb.

Highlandgirl Sun 02-Jan-11 20:19:45

Also a number of the children born into The Windsor Family in the last 10 years or so are called...
Margarita,
Davina,
Zenouska,
Columbus and
Cassius

None of those are hugely traditional....!!!

GrimmaTheNome Sun 02-Jan-11 20:20:10

Would you expect someone called 'Autumn' to go for an old trad English name necessarily?

NewYearNewSolo Sun 02-Jan-11 20:20:28

I don't like it at all...

NewYearNewSolo Sun 02-Jan-11 20:23:33

Highlandgirl, I think most of those are way better than Savannah and very traditional with the exception of Davina and I've only heard of one Davina before who doesn't strike me as very...traditional hmm

ivykaty44 Sun 02-Jan-11 20:26:24

Margarita sounds tradition

Zara wasn't a traditional name though

Highlandgirl Sun 02-Jan-11 20:27:20

Well I guess you have a point NewYear however since the name hasn't been confirmed yet..might be pointless commenting..!

I think it's pretty tacky, but at the end of the day it is nice they've called the baby something they wanted and not just gone for something hideous because it is "royal" (Eugenie, anyone?).

mathanxiety Sun 02-Jan-11 22:02:03

Yikes. That's the best they could do?

onimolap Sun 02-Jan-11 22:16:51

See here.

I think the EDP report may be based on a garble.

droves Sun 02-Jan-11 22:19:13
