Even as the family of Jacintha Saldanha--a nurse at London’s King Edward VII Hospital who apparently killed herself in the wake of the hoax call--in Shirva, here is inconsolable, a Facebook community sympathetic towards Jacintha’s tragic fate is making an unique effort to perpetuate her memory.

The community which calls itself “name the Royal baby Jacintha” has suggested that Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge Catherine Elizabeth’s yet-to-be-born child be named after Jacintha.

“My deepest condolences once again go out to all those affected. I hope Jacintha has found peace. The name Jacintha I believe is of Greek origin, from the flower “Hyacinth”. “It is a beautiful name and I believe would be apt to be one of the Royal Baby’s middle names. Please like and share if you agree and lets raise awareness in memory of Jacintha!,” the community said. According to FB member Philip Michael Jon Campion, “the page is a nice idea and I think it should be taken into consideration. Though I wouldn’t put pressure on the Royals to do so. Sorry to hear about this rather shocking death”.

But there were others too who agreed to disagree.“It’s a lovely thought but I don’t think it would be fair to the baby to be linked through the name to this tragedy,” opined one James Glass.
