The media nickname for the newborn British princeling?
I can't be the only one who's mentally tagging the newborn son of Prince William of Wales and the Duchess of Cambridge (known only as Kate Middleton on this side of the pond) not with his official, sonorous name of "George Alexander Louis," but simply as "Boy George." The world of entertainment stole a royal nickname when a singer named Stacy Ann Ferguson appropriated "Fergie" from Sarah, Duchess of York (the former Sarah Ferguson), so it's only fitting for the House of Windsor to grab a name from show business.
