Being from the UK, it’s no big surprise Ed Sheeran had his picks for names for the Royal baby. While William and Kate opted to name their first born George Alexander Louis, Sheeran shared his thoughts on the best Royal baby names at the 96.5 TIC Acoustic Cafe.
“I think every single Royal family member that ever gets born always has a really regal name, like George, Phillip, Edward,” Sheeran said. “Has anyone seen on YouTube the ‘Top 60 Ghetto Names’? it starts off, like, Shaniqua, Latifah, LaToya, Laquisha, La’Kisha, Laquisha-Niquia– it gets to a point where it’s like ‘United States of America-niqua’… Any of those names, for a Royal Family member, has my vote.”
Sheeran was obviously just having a bit of fun about the the most talked-about infant of the year, but referencing the ghetto names video on YouTube does bring to light how many Royal names tend to land on the conservative side. So what’s his ultimate pick for what baby George’s name should have been?
“Just like, Kanye, or something like that,” he added, jokingly.
