A PRINCE NAMED GEORGE, WHAT'S IN A NAME?
Why George one may ask? Why not George Icheoku says? Whatever opinion anyone may have regarding the named prince, it is now moot and irrelevant since the parents of the prince, Kate Middleton and Prince Williams, have decided to name and have named their child and a future King of England, George. His full names - George Alexander Louis, The Prince of Cambridge.
George oh George and there are many George(s), to which named persons group has been added yet another George - The Prince of Cambridge. Icheoku says among persons named George, we have Boy George, George Clinton, George Michael, George Bush and of course the prince's forebear, the great abdicator King George V of England. But these are the good George(s) as we also have some infamous George(s) including the recently acquitted child killer and murderer George Zimmerman. Ordinarily Icheoku would have questioned the sensitivity of Kate Middleton and Prince Williams in naming their son George so soon after a George murdered an unarmed black teenager in America? But we will sure give them a break since they must have decided on the name long before the baby was born and before Zimmerman came into the picture.
Icheoku prays and hopes that this particular George will be a good George unlike murderer George Zimmerman; more articulate than former United States President George W. Bush; will not abdicate the throne unlike his forebear King George V; possibly as talented as Boy George and that his pedigree will not tolerate his becoming gay like the George Michael in order to sire a successor. Whatever happens, The Prince of Cambridge has been named George and peradventure his name will factor in in his future endeavours. Once again, icheoku says congratulations to Kate Middleton and Prince Williams on their latest addition to their new family. To Prince of Cambridge, George Alexander Louis, Icheoku says welcome and may you live long and thrive.
