The actual birth is sort of secondary to what I've really been waiting for, which is the name. I'm really obsessed with names: my kids each have three (excluding their surname) and even that was a struggle to keep it contained. I have my "next" two kids named already, and have a list of phantom children (the five I expected to have when I was a teenager, and planned ahead [none of which I used for my real offspring, as it turned out]).
Anyway, today's the day! In case you haven't heard (as if) Will and Kate announced HRH the Prince of Cambridge's adorable new moniker:
GEORGE ALEXANDER LOUIS
Lots of folks are divided on George, but I think it's adorable. So in honour of little Prince George, the next-to-next-to-next in line to the throne, here is my list of favourite Georges.
|"Oh God, You Devil!" | George Burns|
|Not a huge Star Wars fan but I am a fan of EVERY OTHER MOVIE EVER MADE | George Lucas|
|1984, Forever and Always. The incomparable | George Orwell|
|Arguably the smoking-hottest George | George Clooney|
|Intergalactic space dad | George Jetson|
|Middlemarch on, yo! | George Eliot|
|Truly one of a kind | Lonesome George|
|Straight to the point | Georges-Pierre Seurat|
|By the hour, tonight (and every night). The most badass George | George Stromboulopoulos|
|So awesome there should be a festival named after him. Oh, wait. | George Bernard Shaw|
Possibly my very next favourite
|HRH Prince George of Cambridge|
