GREAT NECK - Long Islanders joined people across the world today in participating in the royal baby watch, and were not disappointed when the Palace confirmed that Prince William and his wife, Kate, had welcomed a baby boy.

Now that His Tiny Highness has arrived, thoughts have turned to names for the infant who is third in line to throne. News 12's Jill Wagner spoke with some Long Islanders who had their own suggestions. Many thought it be something simple and classic, such as George.

Experts say that's not far off, and speculate it will be a "noble" name steeped in history, such as James or George.

What do you think the baby's name will be? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
