Sir David Attenborough to change his name to Boaty McBoatface

The public want the UK's new polar research ship to be named Boaty McBoatface, but it will instead will be named after the revered naturalist and thoroughly lovely bloke Sir David Attenborough. Wouldn’t it be great if Sir David changed his name to Sir Boaty McBoatface in the interest of democracy and humour?
