It now seems (maybe!) the wait is over, with most media outlets reporting Rumi and Sir as the new baby Carters.

To be on the Z-list might be the worst place to be if you’re a celebrity, but for a name? Z-names are super snazzy and jazzy! The fact that there aren’t many common Z-names to choose from, automatically make them more unique and exotic and the initial-Z sound has a really pleasing resonance.
