I guess it's something old fashioned. And Timothy and/or Carlton could be in it.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Hahahaha, that'd be a hoot!

I thought it might be something like Henry, James or William, and maybe one of his own and his dad's names in the middle. Though who knows, maybe Sophie's got some ancestor or other whose name they're going to use.

Kurt? Kurt Cumberbatch doesn't sound too bad (considering they are giving him Ben's name)

Re: Game: Guess the name of the baby

Does anyone but me think it's rather odd that no name for the baby has been made public? Of course it's their right to never tell the public his name, if that's what they decide to do. Has a name been announced, and I just missed it?

Re: Game: Guess the name of the baby

It does seem a little odd, but like you said, it's their right. I'm sure we'll find out at some point.  Would love to see a photo of the little man but I can wait until there's something official.  Trying to avoid any paps.

I just hope they will take it all on their own time... but I can't deny that I'm curious

Re: Game: Guess the name of the baby

Well, they're not a royal couple so...don't necessarily expect them to publish a picture of the baby. I mean, Martin and Amanda do everything they can to keep their kids out of the press and always ask for pictures to get removed if they get put online or whathaveyou so...Benedict and Sophie might do the same.

Re: Game: Guess the name of the baby

I know there were rumours of a paparazzi pic of Ben out with a stroller, but luckily I haven't seen it. Don't even know if it's true. The Tumblr blogs I follow shared an encouragement to everyone NOT to post or share the pic, so no one did.

Sometimes, fans can be quite alright.

Re: Game: Guess the name of the baby

And sometimes, they can be all nasty and mean. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/errr.png


That pic you are speaking about - I have seen it before I knew what it is. Because only a stroller and no baby is visible on a picture, some nasty person reblogged it anyway, with a sarcastic comment making fun of people protecting Ben´s privacy. I can´t undestand how can it be so satisfying for such people to make mean things like that. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/devious.png


-----------------------------------

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Re: Game: Guess the name of the baby

While it is true that a certain percentage of Ben's fans are asshats, and a few more percentage points of them are younger than 14 and therefore have no adult judgment about what constitutes acceptable behavior, most of us fall into the other 80ish%.

And while I respect the Cumberbatches' desire not to be the subject of scrutiny, the fact is, Ben IS a public figure, whether he likes it or not. He and Sophie should have a good PR agent who will lead them into finding a balance between letting it all hang out and acting as though his fans are dangerous loony tune nut cases who shouldn't be trusted with the time of day. It might be a fine line, but I believe it IS find-able....  thousands of Hollywood celebs have done it, after all, found that balance. Treating your fans like pariahs will not endear you to anyone. I realize that here in America we probably play by a different set of rules when it comes to celebrity, but all I have is my American opinion.

So I'm hoping they'll throw us a bone and at least tell us the kid's first name. I will NEVER expect photos, but I guess I can't see the harm in sharing his first name. Will my life go on if I never learn what his name is?  Absolutely. But being a fan of Ben's (and why do I feel I owe him an apology for actually caring about him? how weird!), I think I'm entitled to at least know a little bit about his real life, not just his characters.

Just my take on this. Is there a thread somewhere already set up for this topic?
