Go, guess what name they will use - one for a boy, one for a girl.

I'll go with:

Archibald (Archie)

and

Millicent (Millie) or Arabella - perhaps Diana for a female middle name?

I think they will definitely go for Royal names:
Boy James or George
Girl Jane or Charlotte


#3 Feral_Pooks

Boy -James or Edward

Girl- Elizabeth, with perhaps Diana as MN

So sad to hear Kate has HG, I am a survivor and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.

I think when they do pick a name they will definitely go for traditional.

They will be naming the next King or Queen of England.  

Boy - George (after the current Queen's father) or James or Henry - as first names.
Lots of choices for middle names: Charles, Edward, Phillip, Arthur.

Girls - Victoria would be my first choice.  Then she will be Queen Victoria II.
After that Elizabeth or Mary as a first choice.  Again, the royal baby will have 3 middle names - so anything from Diana, Alexandra, Phillipa (I don't know Kate's mum's name - but throw that in there as well).

Girls
Mary
Victoria
Alexandra
Margaret ( which I guess is another version of Mary)

Boys.

Phillip
George
Charles
Albert (the queens fathers real name)

I imagine this child will be the conservative naming choice.

Perhaps other children down the track will be a bit more flexible.

Victoria and Richard

Part of me is hoping they go for a name that isn't associated with any past monarchs, but they'll probably go with George, Victoria, etc.

I'd like to see something unexpected yet still traditional.  Maybe Marcus or Christopher for a boy.  Lydia or Juliet for a girl.  I doubt it though.

Arthur for a boy! I expect it will be George or Albert though.

Elizabeth for a girl, maybe Mary.

I think they will be more traditional with a girls name as, if the baby is a girl, she will be the first to be queen by succession, not just default of no boys.

The family tree has heaps of great names.

Amelia
Sophia

Maximillian
Wilamena

Dorathea or Dora
augusta
Adolphus (probably not)

There is also a huge variety of Scottish names they might like, as they spend a great deal of time in Scotland.

James

Here is the current royal family, some great names in there.

Henry James for a boy - just because I love it

Victoria Diana - just a guess

#13 Kreme

Posted 04 December 2012 - 11:42 AM

Boy:James, George, Arthur.
Middle names might be Charles, Philip, Henry, Edward, Andrew

Girl:Alexandra, Victoria, Mary, Elizabeth
Middle names Diana, Margaret, Anne

Victoria Diana sounds wonderful.

Charles would be good for a boys name "Charlie"

#17 ali27

Posted 04 December 2012 - 11:52 AM

Names on the royal family tree which haven't been used for a while are

Alice
Caroline
Charlotte
Helena
Melita

Albert
Alexander
Frederick
Harold
John

#18 Mumma_G

Posted 04 December 2012 - 11:53 AM

Eva, Elizabeth, Mary

James, George, Spencer (haha wishful thinking for that last one but i thought it would be nice to honour Diana)

#19 Bunsen the feral

Posted 04 December 2012 - 12:09 PM

My guess is a formal, traditional name with a nickname -much like when Charles and Diana named the boys and stated the informal name right from the start.

I predict Elizabeth (after the queen and queen mother) nn Elsie for a girl. We have had the name Elsie picked out for 5 years and 2 boys later we're expecting #3 - I am being driven mad by everyone going on about it being a "princess" this time (I cannot stand people calling girls princesses)- what are chances of a real princess coming along and stealing our name?  tongue.gif Meh, we'll probably have another boy anyway!



#20 42n8

Posted 04 December 2012 - 12:19 PM

Boy: Albert William Charles (not sure on the 3rd middle name but I reckon this is where they'll put something a little more contemporary royal).

Can probably rule out Henry, as that's Harry's real name and I doubt George as that was the Queen's father's title and that was surrounded by sadness, but Albert is his real name.

Girl: Would love something still traditional but original for a future Queen like: Arabella, Clementine, Gretchen or even Adelaide for example. Middle names; my guesses are;
Victoria Elizabeth Catherine.  I'd love them to use Dianna but I think that'll get nix'd by the powers that be.

I"m gonna rule out Mary as a possibility as there will be a Queen Mary in Denmark around the same time and Charlotte is quite popular around European royalty.

#21 Mrs Bouquet

Posted 04 December 2012 - 12:24 PM

I think if it is a girl that Diana's middle name of Frances will be in there somewhere.

Anyway, best wishes to them and I hope they have a long and happy life.

#22 Feral Grey Mare

Posted 04 December 2012 - 12:28 PM

How about a nod to the colonies by using Wayne or Raelene? Or some EB suggestions: Pippin, Zoltan, Libertine or Acie?

#23 71Cath

Posted 04 December 2012 - 12:32 PM

Abcde or Le-a are the obvious choices...

#24 Quaintrelle

Posted 04 December 2012 - 12:36 PM

Boy: not likely to be Richard or John as the last kings with that name were naughty boys. James would be nice, traditional but current.

Girl: Elizabeth III has a nice ring to it.

#25 Z-girls rock

Posted 04 December 2012 - 01:15 PM

Apparently Twitter has already decided and the name will be Shaniqua

http://gawker.com/59...n=recirculation

I agree with a commenter that Latifah would be a much more awesome and appropriate name (I mean - this baby may be Queen one day!)

I think it is weird that twitter has also decided already that they are having a girl. Or maybe Shaniqua is another name that has gone unisex ph34r.gif
