Why? We knew Savannah's name. We didn't think we knew her middle name but maybe now it seems she just doesn't have one.

Exactly 15 months age difference, what a coincidence!

Congrats to parents, big sister, grandparents and great-grandparents!

Because we only found out Savannahs name due to a slip up by the minister at Sandringham.

I guess a special year needs a special name (Elizabeth).

Congratulations to the whole family, Isla Elizabeth is a lovely name. I thought the name Elizabeth would be in there somewhere, as pretty much every girl in that family (apart from Eugenie) has the middle name Elizabeth. Isla is a beautiful name, it goes well with Savannah. It's odd how much freedom Peter and Autumn had with their daugther's name yet everyone else had to choose quite traditional names. I know he is isn't high in the line of succession, but still, Savannah and Isla are a bit "out there". I love both the names though, do not get me wrong.

Well "Zara" raised a few eyebrows when she was named.

Do we know for a fact that they had to choose traditional names? Zara wasn't particularly traditional. Obviously, William had to be given a name befitting a future King, but wasn't it also a means of Charles honouring his late cousin Prince William of Gloucester? I can imagine that for all the other royal grandchildren it was more or less up to their parents.

Traditional names are very popular among the upper class in the UK. I certainly don't think the Queen is like Queen Victoria, more or less vetoing the name of any of her descendants if they didn't suit her.

That's true! Zara is a bit "out there" for the 80's! Perhaps Anne was given more leeway than her older brother, due to his children more likely to being Monarch. It just seems that the Queen's children all chose Royal names, a bit traditional. Perhaps that did in fact like the names, but I have heard that the Queen has to approve the names. Her grandchildren all have traditional names, particularly William, Henry and James. They probably did genuinely like the names they chose, but just a shame they weren't a bit more wacky! I wish James had been called Alexander.

I heard that William was honouring Prince William of Gloucester too, what a nice thing to do. I can't see HM nixing any of her children's names, but I would imagine she would not have been keen for her William or Harry to be called something trendy! I can't see her allowing them to have been called Alexander, even if it is a Royalish name.

Isla Elizabeth, what a beautiful name. Nice with a homage to the Queen, so I guess that must mean that Elizabeth isn't one of Savannah's names if she has more than one. Congratulations to Peter, Autumn and Savannah!
