The story of the day yesterday and again today is the birth of the Royal Baby who although doesn’t have a name yet, does have a title, the Prince of Cambridge.
The domain name PrinceofCambridge.com was registered under privacy at UK registrar Easy Space just last week on the July 16th and goes to a registrar placeholder.
Bookies in the UK have been busy taking bets on the name of the Royal Baby.
According to the bookies the most likely name of the royal baby are George, James, Alexander, Louis, and Henry
If your looking to register any of those domains forget it.
PrinceGeorge.com has been registered since 1995; PrinceHenry.com was registered in 1999; PrinceJames.com was registered back in 2001; on the other hand PrinceAlexander.com was just registered back in 2011, and PrinceLouis.com was registered in 2012.
PrinceArthur.com who I have heard as another popular choice on some news shows is available at BuyDomains.com.
Since yesterday some 75 .com/.net domain names have been registered as people are trying to win a bet another way by guessing the matching domain name for the new prince so domain such as PrinceSpencer.com, PrinceJacob.com and even less than regal sounding names like PrinceRandy.com and PrinceJimmy.com
Other registered domain playing off the Royal Baby’s official title by registering a potential place that might be named after the royal baby like princeofcambridgehotel.com, princeofcambridgehospital.com and princeofcambridegetheatre.com.
Here are some of the domains registered yesterday and today so far:
If your wondering the “king” of all Royal Baby domain names (pun intended) is The domain name RoyalBaby.com which has not only been registered since 1998 but it is the URL for the site “The Royal Nursery” which has an interesting history as the founder describes on her site:
“In 1982, as Princess Diana and Prince Charles anxiously awaited the birth of their first son, the future King of England, I too, eagerly awaited the birth of my first son.
“As worldwide attention focused on the pending birth of the next heir to the British throne, I felt the same excitement about the upcoming birth of my son. His birth was just as important to me as the birth of Britain’s royal baby was to the world. In my eyes, my future son was my “Royal Baby”. I knew that countless others, awaiting the birth of their own children, felt the same way.”
“After shopping for my newborn son, I quickly discovered how difficult it was to find truly special baby items and clothing. Trips to various baby boutiques and upscale department stores left me disappointed by my inability to locate the type of gifts I wanted to bestow upon my son. As a result of my personal experience, I decided to create the ultimate baby store for everyone’s Royal Baby.”
“As I struggled to find the perfect name for my retail concept, I recalled the worldwide attention given to Prince William. I reasoned that if one imagined the ultimate baby nursery, one would visualize a nursery of royalty, Prince William’s Royal Nursery, filled with very special gifts for a royal baby. From this simple premise, the name The Royal Nursery was born.”
“Twenty-nine years after the creation of The Royal Nursery, and after having stores in five locations, we transitioned into an internet-only store. Now, with the pending birth of Kate and Wills’ “Royal Baby”, The Royal Nursery has come full circle from when Prince William’s birth inspired me to create “The Royal Nursery”.”
Being British I thought I’d have a punt and registered PrinceAlfie.com and KingAlfie.com; just in case they decide on Alfred 🙂
