Baby Cumberbatch name revealed

After months of silence, the name of Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter's baby boy has been reported to be Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch.

Cumberbatch

The couple married on the Isle of Wight on Valentine's Day this year and welcomed their first son on June 1. According to reports, Carlton is a traditional Cumberbatch family name that has been passed down to Benedict's grandfather, father and Benedict himself.

Why Christopher we're not sure, but we do know that Benedict played the role of a Christopher in the BBC adaptation of Parade's End back in 2012.
