Handsome brooding vampire guy has to swoop in all sensitive mouth and overhanging forehead. How 'bout leaving some scraps for the homely-looking fellows who don't turn evil when they get some?

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.

There it is!

It would take awesome fierce and determination (all good things in a monarch) to name a child Ethelred. Or Ethelreda. C'mooonnn, baby E!

Basil or Colon could be fun. But the jokes from America about Prince Colon would not be pleasant.

Cholmondely. Definitely a contender, to me.

If I were in charge of the monarchy, I would retire some names based on the incompetence, unpleasantness or sheer unluckiness of previous monarchs with that name.

They do actually do that.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

Hi thread!

I said Michael, because isn't it time for a new name? And it's her father's.

Not so nice is that I'm about to ruin a Friday morning for a bunch of people because of a series of unfortunate events and an upset foreign government. - shrift

I think Michael has Catholic connotations, but I am most likely way off on my reasoning.

They could name him North. I know it's not very original.

Now if your car ain't got it, go out and get it. We like the boom and don't you forget it. So turn down the treble and front your bass.

I have no thoughts on Royal Baby names.

I opened up my LJ for the first time in yonks to start up a list of things I have to sell at my house that I haven't got around to selling, because I AM FREAKING out about almost depleting my savings. I mean, clearly I do not have even $1000 worth of stuff that I am willing to part with from my home, but I think the list, plus getting back some funds will motivate me to get this stuff out quickly.

You were a wrong baby who grew up wrong. The wrong kind of wrong. It's better you hear it from a friend.

I'm hoping they go for Offa. Then, when the press speculate on when he'll get a sibling, they can ask, "Is that your final Offa?".
