New thread!

Back to royal baby names:

Alfred Egbert Canute

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. Charles, Richard and James come to mind.

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.

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.
