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 were indeed private, as the English couple have kept the moniker of their bundle of joy a secret…

Until now!

You can call the Sherlock Holmes actor's infant…

Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch

How dapper!

But, how did they come up with it?!

Carlton is the middle name of both Cumberbatch and his father! So sweet that they're keeping it in the family!

Congrats to Benedict and Sophie on this wonderful news!
