While we were waiting for the brand-new Prince of Cambridge to be born (at a whopping eight pounds, six ounces—you go, Kate!) we couldn't help thinking about the royal baby's name. William and Kate have surely already given much thought to their newborn’s namesake, but we figured we’d share some of our own suggestions, straight from the world of Broadway. After all, some of the best names in the lexicon of the English language have come from fictional works, so why not take a page from musical theater with these 20 suggestions inspired by some of our favorite Broadway characters.
IF THE BABY HAD BEEN A GIRL...
Because sometimes you're just born to be a queen.
You is my baby now.
She'll be saying "gimme, gimme" long before she enters the terrible twos.
The glamour baby!
Great at chores, even if she won't have any.
And I am telling you (I’m not napping).
Just a heads up: never let her go on vacation over the summer.
And then he ran into my rattle! He ran into my rattle 10 times!
Princess Violet and/or Daisy
To ensure a daughter that will never leave you.
She’ll never need swimming lessons, but at some point she'll need her first set of training shells.
IT'S A BOY! OUR SUGGESTIONS:
Awesome poet, paralyzing self-esteem issues.
Sophisticated, classy, looks great bald.
All he’ll ask of you is a diaper change.
His first word will, of course, be “Zaza.”
Count him in for the Carnaval del Buckingham.
Meet one of the nicest royal kids in town.
This Winkie prince will be dancing through nursery school in no time.
"Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum" never sounded so natural.
Prince Bill or Harry or Sam
One royal baby, three possible names!
He just can't wait to be king. (You saw this one coming a mile away.)
