With the recent birth of the royal baby and the announcement of his chosen name, we’ve been waiting for George to start trending. I can assure you that my own father (a George) has been waiting for his name to trend for most of his 69 years on earth. He is more than ready for people to replace thoughts of ” Georgie Porgie Puddin’ and Pie, kissin’ the girls and making them cry” with thoughts of an adorable and regal Prince.
The name George has been holding steady in terms of popularity for the last decade. Five years ago it was the 153rd most popular baby name in the US and last year it fell to 166. We can’t wait to see where it lands on the list for 2013 now that the world’s most famous Prince and Princess have declared it suitable for their own heir to the throne.
Until then, Walmart continues the celebration of George’s arrival with the release this week of Limited Edition Prince George tees for baby. Available in four styles, these cute and comfortable tees retail for $4 each, and are available in sizes 0-3 to 24 months.
I had to pick one up myself for the newest little Prince who will be joining our family early in the new year. My sister’s expecting a little boy, and my father’s hoping that if he can’t convince her that George is a worthy name, at least he can start his grandson’s brainwashing early. And now that he’s seen this shirt, he’s trying to figure out how to get one for everybody in the family to wear around the Thanksgiving table!
