The royal heir was born at 4:24 p.m. London time and weighed 8 pounds, 6 ounces, the royal family announced. There was no immediate word on the boy’s name.

I am predicting John as part of his given name.

The Queen would veto John.

How many John's have there been in the royal succession in the past 800 or so years?

Not enough.

This one was between Richard and Henry.

But he was that awful, that his name has never been repeated in 800 years... it's not going to with this child....

Yes, he was a total douche.  However, according to Winston Churchill, "When the long tally is added, it will be seen that the British nation and the English-speaking world owe far more to the vices of John than to the labours of virtuous sovereigns."
