Crown Prince

Good news, people of Eternia! As royal consort, I am pleased to announce that your queen is expecting a son.

The joyous event is anticipated to occur on July 4th, which will ever after be celebrated as a holiday among our people. The throne of Eternia will have an heir!

We are now accepting your suggestions for names for the Crown Prince. We have had some excellent early entrants on Facebook, so check out your competition there. If you suggest one that we end up using, you will be granted a title of nobility and lands in Eternia, although I should warn you that Eternia is not a real place and therefore does not, strictly speaking, exist.

But neither does Cambridge, and it's still good to be prince of that, I think.


(UPDATE : Oh, and my favorite one that I thought of just this morning: Humble Solomon Payne. Or Solomon Humble Payne. Or Humble Payne Solomon. Frankly, I'm not sure there's a bad way for those three words to be arranged.)

Congrats on your little prince. Since he's due to arrive on teh 4h of July how about something like Freedom or Liberty From Payne for a name? just kidding. Everyone in America will celebrate his birthday.
