Who else is keen for the name announcement? I am really hoping they DON’T call him Arthur (Aussie’s will understand, all I can think of is “I say, Arthur” from Mother and Son, or creepy Uncle Arthur!).

I still personally hope for Albert, little Bertie would be cute and a lovely gesture to the Queen honouring her beloved father.

EDIT : William was overheard telling a gentleman at the ANZAC service that he has a “strong name”.......

A “strong name”? What does that even mean? What is a “weak” name? Weird. William is so awkward.

My husband's grandma always used that exact phrase when we told her the names of our kids. My first thought when I saw that quote was, Wow, he sounds just like Grandma Judy!  

Do you know what she meant by that? I’m still really confused.

I think she (and I guess William) meant that we want him to be a strong/good/positive person and this is a name that we associate with that type of person. Huh?

Impatiently waiting for the name...

Secretly hoping for a faux announcement that it’s  ‘Joffrey’. Just to mess with everyone.

Manfred Armstrong Studkins? Is that strong enough?

What the hell does that mean?

Manfred Armstrong Studkins McHasapenis.

Is that strong enough for William?

Interesting. Don’t all parents want that for their kids, and thus choose a name that suits the baby/person they want that child to be? I’m not picking on your grandmother; I’m just wondering what in the hell William meant when he said that. He also said something along the lines of “So far, he’s behaving himself” which is perhaps the stupidest thing anybody has ever said about an infant.

Your grandmother probably put actual thought into her words. I tend to think William did not.

I want the court’s crier/announcer/underpaid servant/whatever to officially declare that the baby shall be called HRH Prince McHasapenis. It’s strong; it’s a lovely tribute to Scotland. It works on so many levels.  Laugh bounce

You're probably right. But I seriously side eye names like 'Stormi, Chicago, Apple' and other hipster combinations. No offense if anyone with an unusual name is reading  Beer  ... Biblical names like David, Matthew, Thomas are names that I personally would call a 'strong' name. But to each their own!  Yes

If it's a " strong name " (whatever it means), I stick with Victor. Simply because of Victor Newman of the Young and the Restless. That is strong. Laugh bounce

I completely agree. A girl I went to high school with named one of her daughters Milan. I guess that’s a good name if your hopes for her are that she become a stripper or porn star.

Plus our maternity leave policy is a joke in the US. I was one of the lucky ones. I’m home with my daughter now but I worked a government job in which I was vested and part of a union so I was able to take my full 12 weeks of unpaid leave. I saved my vacation time to cover most of my pay and my amazing coworkers donated leave time to make up the rest. Most are not as lucky as I was. One of my friends had a son about 7 months after I had my daughter. She had a c-section and only had 6 weeks off. I can’t imagine recovering not just from childbirth but a major surgery and having to go back to work 6 weeks later. It’s inhumane. So many parts of the system are broken here. I wish we had healthcare and maternal leave like the European system.

I had 3 weeks off following a c-section since I saved all my vacation time.  Not every job in the US is covered under the FMLA so I wasn't eligible for the unpaid 12 weeks even.

I was eligible for the whole 12 weeks after my daughter was born, plus in CA I qualified for disability pay for 10 weeks.  I've actually been a stay at home mom for the last 2.5 years though.

When are they going to announce the name?

Edited to add: I wonder if it will be tomorrow out of respect for the ANZAC remembrances?

Hopefully soon.   George's was announced around 6 pm on 24 July and Charlotte's was announced around 3 pm on 4 May.   The next hour or two is my hope.   It sounds like they have it picked out and just can't be bothered.   The press got a "soon" on Monday and today someone was told "a strong name".   Just out with it already.

edited to add: The Services were this morning and midday (church at noon).  Granted I'm not British, Aussie, or Kiwi but waiting several hours for late afternoon early evening when people have been waiting since midday Monday seems ok to me.   I don't think there are any events tonight in connection, if there were then delaying until morning might make sense but then I expect 8 am on the dot.   And it's not like ANZAC day came as a surprise so they could have announce yesterday evening to avoid today.
