The British rules of usage permit non-royal peers, with the exception of dukes, to be referred to, unofficially, as Lord X. The Earl of Snowdon may be referred to as Lord Snowdon, and Viscount Severn may be referred to as Lord Severn.

In formal usage his given name would be omitted, just as the Earl of Wessex's son James is "Viscount Severn" instead of "James, Viscount Severn". For example: https://www.royal.uk/succession

Of course, in the event that it were necessary to state his first and/or last name, it would indeed be given as "(Name), Earl of Dumbarton".

Based on my understanding of UK, and know in US, boys are mostly just name John. Jean is considered a girl name in US.

There's always the option of going for Gene which is short for Eugene.

Actually, if I'm remembering right, William and Kate's youngest is Louis which is pronounced Looey in the French way. It would be the same with Jean. It's pronounced sounding more like John than Jean. I actually dated a French Canadian many moons ago who was name Jean-Marie.

Yes in French speaking places it would be a masculine name. But this baby will be raised in an English speaking country by English speaking parents. Yes Louis has a French name, but the pronunciation of his name is quite common even in English speaking circles. That and Lord Mountbatten. Jean doesn't have the same benefit. There is no such family link either.

The English form, John, on the other hand has a strong family history. Though they would have to get past the so called curse talk.

If the baby is a boy, my guess is: Alexander

I don’t have a clue about a possible girl name.

I have considered Guy [as in Guy Pelly] for a little Lord Dumbarton but Prince Guy of Sussex, doesn't sound right. Have to put the thinking cap back on.

How about Spike? Wasn't that a name that Harry used for a while for social media?

Spike Sussex. Has a ring to it.

Ah well... back to the drawing board.

From knowing a few "Guys" in my life, I've learned that the pronunciation of that name isn't pronounced Gai but rather Gee. Its a French name. I have no clue how Guy Pelly pronounces his name though. I don't see that happening though.

It could be much, much worse. Michael Phelps, the Olympic swimmer actually gave his firstborn son the name Boomer. Seriously. Boomer Robert Phelps. I feel for the kid. The bright side is that Boomer was named after Phelps coach who he greatly admires.

Then again, H&M could decide to honor Bogart that they had to separate from and call the kid Humphrey. I'd feel sorry for that kid too if they decided on that name.
