Time of birth: 4:24 p.m., July 22, 2013. After over 14 hours of labor (poor woman!), Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, delivered a healthy baby boy, weighing in at 8 pounds, 6 ounces. Finally! Here, here! Champagne toasts all around!
Buuuut the name of The Duke and Duchess' baby is not here. Boo! Hiss! Just kidding! We know the little one's title -- His Royal Highness, the First Prince of Cambridge -- but still, no name. There's a good chance William and Kate are still debating names, but odds are it will be one of two.

Royal experts and average Joes alike have been debating what the royal baby's name will be -- boy or girl -- for quite some time now, and as far as male names go, the two favorites seem to be George and James. (Alexandra was the favorite for a girl name.)
I can't say it's an utter shock that we don't yet know the name of one of the most highly-anticipated babies in recent years, as it's somewhat of a royal tradition to delay announcing the name. With William, it took seven days to find out his name; and with Harry, it was a day. But I am slightly surprised the Duke and Duchess are still yet to reveal their son's name, as they've been known to buck tradition from time to time.
This is a name that will have enormous historical significance (we're talking the future King of England here), so likely we won't casually find out today. I'm sure Will and Kate want to take their time in choosing the perfect, noble name for their boy, if they haven't done so already. But dear god I hope we find out some time in the near future. We're all dying to know!! My money's on George.
Congrats to the Duke and Duchess!!! We couldn't be happier for you!!!
What name do you think Will and Kate gave the baby?
I create a special savings account
I put a little away at a time
I cut corners until I can afford it
Save? Who has money to save?
I plan to put it on my credit card and love the benefits of the reward program
