My Thoughts on the New Royal Baby

Prince William and Duchess Kate are the proud parents of a brand-new squalling baby boy.  They named him George.  George is a perfectly fine name to have.  There have been plenty of Georges who have led successful lives.  There are currently many Georges around…a lot of whom are wonderful people, and there have even been Kings named George.

George is not however a very popular name for babies as far as “in vogue” names go right now.  To be completely honest, when I think of the name “George”, I think of a balding, overweight plumber who is somewhere around 60 years of age.  When the news showed a picture of the new prince, he didn’t look much like a middle-aged plumber.

To be completely fair, the royal couple didn’t have a lot of say in the matter…a future king is expected to have certain names.  They really only had a few names to choose from: Charles, William, Richard, Henry, and George.  Had Will and Kate had a daughter, I promise you that she would have been named one of the following: Elizabeth, Victoria, or Ann…possibly Anne.

Maybe it’s just me, but I think that it’s time that the Royal Family got with the times and chose a few new names for their first-born children.

Oh well…I guess that having a future king who likes to tinker with plumbing isn’t the worst thing in the world!
