Baby Fever

The Royal Baby – here, there and everywhere. The media are going crazy. Even The Sun newspaper changed its name for the day to “The Son” (which I must say I thought was pretty tacky).

The next big question is going to be the name. Is Kate going to follow the trend of modern moms and give her baby a unique name? Well there is a famous baby called Apple. No that won’t work – calling the future King of England a fruit – well … no. Just can’t do it. Remember when David Bowie called his son Zowie? A rhyme might not be a bad idea. So what rhymes with King? Bling? He certainly will have lots of that. Naw…. that’s not going to work. King Bling? No one would take him seriously.

Maybe a sort of  historical name would be good. What about Rollo Рhe could be named after Rollo the Rover Рan ancestor of William the Conqueror.

He was a viking warrior who pillaged his way up the Seine into what is now Normandy. Doesn’t really look like a pillager does he? King Rollo? Has a bit of a ring to it but it won’t work. It sounds too much like a popular chocolate candy in England. He would probably get bullied at school.

While watching all this fuss on the TV my son asked me “Mom, do you think everyone’s forgotten that people are dying in Syria?”. No – we haven’t forgotten. It is just SO nice to celebrate the good news now and again.

Congrats Will and Kate.
