    A Canadian and a member of the British Royal Family are naming their child after a city in Georgia? Poor kid. Of all the beautiful names out there, this is what they chose.

    Well – thats ……unusual. I suppose (because this is all about me of course) that of all the place-names-as-first-names – Savannah is one of my most favourites, so its all good.

    I mean they could have chosen Neveah – God Forbid!

    Well Princess Royal did name her daughter Zara – no royal connection there i’m pretty sure. Maybe Autumn likes Desperate housewifes – god forbid the one with twins in real life named one of them Savannah…i guess it’s about breaking the mould of tradition??

    Savannah? Really? I was expecting something more regal like Patricia or Alice. Oh well. Maybe those will be included in her middle names? I hope so! Savannah isn’t terrible, but it certainly isn’t what you would expect a grandson of England’s Queen to name his first child.

    Savannah is a vert old English name, was the name Geogegina used for one of Jane Austin’s character in Pride and Prejudice? Many Cities and Hamlets carry English names. America was once a Colony of England.

    I thought they had to have the monarchs permission before naming a child. Savannah…i hope it grows on me.
