Suggested Names for the Royal Baby

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (and even at that, a rock without Facebook, Twitter, or cable news), you know that Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed the Royal Baby to the world yesterday.

As of yet, the little guy still has not been named – a process that may take some time due to the various traditions surrounding the naming of a Royal child.

Since I’m sure William and Kate are probably pretty busy right now, I’d like to offer my assistance in naming the Royal baby.

Rejected Baby Names

One of the cool things about having kids is getting to name them.  My wife and I were planning to adopt a girl this past December, so we had been picking out girl’s names.  That plan fell through, but we recently adopted a baby boy on fairly short notice, so we had to come up with a name fairly quickly*

*Who am I kidding – we’ve been coming up with names for pretty much the entire time we have been married, 8 years in April.

As we toss names around, we will “veto” names that we don’t like – a nod to a classic Friends episode.

As tough as it is to find names that we both like, there is an additional layer of challenge – my last name (Feit) can be used as a noun and a verb.  Why does that matter?  Unless we want our daughter to be a living Bart Simpson prank phone call, there are certain names that are off-limits*.

  • Amanda Feit
  • Ivanna Feit
  • Anita Feit
  • Pillow Feit (this is what we told my sister-in-law the little girl’s name was going to be)
  • Faith Feit
  • Mae Feit
  • Betty Feit
  • Serenity Feit

Here is the list of rejected boys names:

  • Will Feit
  • Dick Feit
  • Adam Feit
  • Hunter Feit
  • Diego Feit
  • Forrest Feit
  • Texas Feit
  • Holden Feit

*My sincere apologies to any Feits (related or not) who have any of the names above.  I’m just having fun.  No offense intended.

For our son, we settled on Cameron Edward Feit.

What other names should be on the list?
