Re: It's a boy! Ben is now a father...

Maybe it's a surprise until the christening/namegiving? 

In Denmark it's a tradition to keep the baby's name hidden so it's a surprise for the christening. 

So, who knows? Or maybe it's simply that they want any slice of privacy they can get, and something like the little one's name is that.

Re: It's a boy! Ben is now a father...

According to the DM the baby has been named Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch and was born on 1 June. Since it has been spread by cumberbatchweb and other reliable sources as well, I feel sure enough to post it in here. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Alan's Christopher
Christopher Robin
...

who continues?

Re: It's a boy! Ben is now a father...

Is it weird that I'm proud of Ben and Sophie, that they were able to keep baby Christopher's name and DOB out of the press for 3 months? And no paparazzi photos either I'm glad they are getting some privacy in their private lives...

Re: It's a boy! Ben is now a father...

I have the same feelings ukaunz! It makes me happy that they can still keep some control of their life! 


And I LOVE the name. It works, and wether or not it's a nod to Alan Turing, I love that posibility. I know Ben was touched by Turing!

Re: It's a boy! Ben is now a father...

I don't know if its true, but I would find it very touching if part of the reason Ben chose Christopher was to honor Alan's Christopher.  To, in a small way, let him live again and have a good life.

Re: It's a boy! Ben is now a father...

Yes, lovely name.  I like it, when celebs christen their children with names they can actually live with. Normal names.

Re: It's a boy! Ben is now a father...

Yes, a nice name,  Whatever the reason, I like it (not that my opinion matters, of course).  I, too, am glad that they've had privacy, as they should.

Re: It's a boy! Ben is now a father...

Nice name. My oldest son's name is Christopher--  my Chris is 41 now.
I wonder, did S/B announced the name, or did it leak out or what?  I did a brief internet search and couldn't find any evidence of an "official" announcement.

So it´s Christopher at last? What a cute name! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.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?
