I can hardly believe that.

What is it? A trend? Some kind of allusion? A family name?

DrinkFeckArseGirls Fri 19-Jun-15 08:07:33

I like it! It sure stands out grin

SoupDragon Fri 19-Jun-15 08:08:17

Greville? Um... OK.

SoupDragon Fri 19-Jun-15 08:09:03

They shoud have called him Quentin so he would have been Q Cumberpatch.

Like a cross between Breville and gravel. I prefer Brevel if you must combine them.

grin grin grin

How do you pronounce that? Is it like gravel but with an e sound rather than an a, or is it more grey-vile.

Oh that's bad. Sounds like a make of toaster.

If it had been suggested on a baby name board previously it would have been shot down but now Cumber-whateverhisnameis has used it, MN will be all over it!

I feel this is a wind up grin

Soupdragon I said that to my mate when she had her first (she is a Cumberpatch) she didn't think it was such a good idea. She then had twin boys...neither of them are called Quentin either... sad

How utterly selfish, Wuthering! grin

Re Greville, the only thing Google throws up for me on this is this thread. Where did you hear the news, OP?

AlisonBlunderland Fri 19-Jun-15 08:27:49

That boy will be a cert to get into Hogwarts

IsItStupid Fri 19-Jun-15 08:35:12

I don't think it is! Surely not?

Where did you hear this OP?

CaptainAnkles Fri 19-Jun-15 08:48:17

I really hope that's not true confused

do you mean Grenville? We have a second cousin with this name

Germgirl Fri 19-Jun-15 09:58:03

Soup brilliant smile

Gasp0deTheW0nderD0g Fri 19-Jun-15 10:45:37

A friend of mine swears she has come across a lawyer called Hugh Cumber. Why, just why?

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Fri 19-Jun-15 10:51:35

Well we knew they'd give him an outlandish name. I mean they were hardly likely to call him freeeeeekin Bob or Fred were they

Flubbs Fri 19-Jun-15 11:33:37

It was on the radio last night. Said very seriously but the more I think about it.... I just can't tell.

SoupDragon Fri 19-Jun-15 11:34:04

Whilst googling to find out if this is true, I found this headline

Benedict Cumberbatch shows off his post-baby body, gets back to work after two days off

deadwitchproject Fri 19-Jun-15 12:02:43

It must be a family name. Surely?

DrinkFeckArseGirls Fri 19-Jun-15 12:05:45

LOL @ soup

MappingTheMind Fri 19-Jun-15 12:06:50
