Posted on

The Royal Baby isn’t even a day old, and it’s already more popular than you, loser. According to Facebook data, there were over 1 million interactions based around Royal Baby chatter yesterday… and that’s 1 million interactions in the first hour of the newborn monarch’s life.

But let’s get down to brass tacks here: What the heck are we going to call the pint-sized potentate, who will be King of England someday far in the future when you and everyone you know has passed away into dust and ruin? Based on the UK Facebook buzz yesterday, ten names have emerged as the most popular choices, among people who have no decision in the matter and should probably spend more time focusing on their own family. The top ten names are:

1. George

2. James

3. Louis

4. Henry

5. Philip

6. Richard

7. Daniel

8. Andrew

9. Arthur

10. Spencer

So basically, the list mostly comes down to “names of other Kings you’ve heard of,” with #10 as the awwww-inducing nostalgia dark horse (“Spencer” being dearly departed Grandma Diana’s surname.) Now, those names are all pretty good. But clearly, the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge could use a few more suggestions in the name box. Forthwith, EW’s own list of 100 Names For the Royal Baby. Put your own in the comments: William and Kate are probably reading, for all you know!
