Would You Copy Will and Kate’s Baby Name?

We admit it—even here across the pond, we have a bit of royal baby fever. I’ve been trolling the news sites looking for confirmation that the Duchess of Cambridge has gone into labor—and hit a bit of excitement when Twitter had some (seemingly unsubstantiated) news of the impending arrival of Prince William and the former Kate Middleton’s much-anticipated baby.

But even I’m not quite as crazy as some of the Brit moms to be—who are apparently holding off on naming their already-born progeny in order to give their kids a name befitting royalty. According to Female First, many newborns remain nameless so their moms can commemorate the royal birth by copycatting on the new prince or princess.

Because you have 60 days to register a baby’s name after birth, odds are there could be a huge spate in Alexandras or Georges with summer 2013 birthdays. (Those two monikers are the current frontrunners in betting pools.)

I’m just hoping that all of these moms have a backup plan, given there’s a 50/50 shot that their babies aren’t the same sex as the royal one.

What do you think? Would you copycat the royal baby name?
