With a name like Benedict Cumberbatch, the bar is set pretty high…
Benedict Cumberbatch and his new wife Sophie Hunter welcomed a son in June. In a statement released by their rep shortly after the Cumberbaby’s birth:
“Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are delighted to announce the arrival of their beautiful son. We would kindly ask everyone to respect the family’s privacy during these next few precious weeks.”
And they suuuper private, as the English couple have kept the name of their spawn under wraps. UNTIL NOW. You can call the Sherlock Holmes actor’s kid…
Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch!
And pour him a spot of tea while you’re at it. So where’d it come from? Carlton is the middle name of both Cumberbatch and his father, giving the name a traditional feel with a first name that you know, is useable in lots of high and low contexts.
Do you think the kid will have a knickname? Chris, Toph? What do you think of the name?!
