Royal no-name babies
Moms of newborns are waiting for Kate’s choice before naming their babies.
By Scott Dunlop
Expectant mums and even mums of newborn babies are refusing to announce baby names until Will and Kate’s baby is born and named, according to Huffington Post. This may be for one of two reasons:
Fortunately, the Royal wait is almost over, with the mystery infant allegedly due 13 July.
- Either these parents want to join the royal trend and use the same name, or
- They want to avoid it like the plague, knowing that using the same name as Kate’s baby will doom the child to being in a classroom full of kids with identical first names. So if Kate and Will choose the name Diana or Blue, there will be class-loads of kids forced to use the initial of their surnames: Blue P. (wait, that’s horrible!) or Diana F.
Did you know that in SA, parents or guardians are required by law to register a baby within 30 days, unless there are circumstances which prevent this?
