Well if it was me, for a girl I'd go for something like Anna Margurite (i.e. with an "a" instead of an "e" at the end of Ann) in honour of Peter's mother and for a boy maybe Marcus William or Marcus Edward?

Those are great suggestions! I'd love it if there were a form of Margaret in the name.

Lord Ivar is a descendant of Catherine The Great.
Lady Sarah Chatto is the daughter of Princess Margaret.
Lady Alexandra Etherington is the daughter of the Duke of Fife, and in line for the British Throne.

I'd call that royal.

My guess is they will pick a name that no one has ever heard of but that is pretty trendy with the upper class, something along the lines of Jasper or Clementine. They'll probably add an Anne or Elizabeth or Mark or Peter as a middle name for the remote possibility that the child might actually have to reign someday.

As Anne herself described her own children as not royal 'they just have the Queen for a grandmother' I think it is clear that even amongst the royal family HRH is necessary to be royal. It is possible to be related to the royal family but not be royal yourself e.g. Peter and Zara Philips and the above named persons - related to but not actually royal.

The suggestion has been made rather strongly that there is a need to reduce the size of the royal family and the most often put forward idea for doing this is to remove the HRH from Beatrice and Eugenie which again shows that the royals and their advisers regard the HRH as the distinguishing mark of a royal and hence again the above persons don't qualify.

Well we were talking about royal godparents, nothing to do with limiting the size of the royal family.
And IMO those three people count as "royal" godparents as opposed to known royals such as me or you.

For a historical name somewhere in there I would like to see Victoria and Albert. Ok.. dreaming here.. came up with a few names.

Elyse Victoria Alice
Louis Albert James

But that's just going historical from the BRF side... I'm sure they're going to remember both families when it comes to naming their child ... or just go with totally unrelated names all the way around.

YOU may call them royal if you wish but it doesn't change the fact that they are NOT......(even though they had royal ancestors...e.g. Princess Margaret was royal, her children are not.)

I always thought that those that were considered "royal" had the title of HRH. A Lord or Lady might descend from royal blood but by themselves weren't royal with HRH.

Zara and Peter Phillips COULD be royal with the title but their mother chose otherwise. Am I correct here? Also presumably with the downsizing of the royal family that's been presented it will only be the children of the sovereign and the children of the heir of the sovereign that will be considered royal in the future with the HRH I think. So one could have royal blood but still not be considered royal?

Back on topic though, this will be the first great grandchild of HM and I can imagine she's over the moon about it.

It would have taken Letters Patent as the Queen's father did when Prince Charles was expected. Without that he would have been Charles Mountbatten with the courtesy title Earl of Merionith.
Even if Mark Phillips had accepted a title his children would only have been Lord Peter Phillips & Lady Zara Phillips with Peter having use of a courtesy title.

Yes - it was officially announced a couple of days ago although I do remember reading something a month or so ago in a tabloid article that she was expecting.

I doubt if a seasonal theme to the name is adopted. Winter Phillips? Fall Phillips? Highly unlikely, IMO!

I thought that the British used 'autumn' to describe the season between summer and winter not 'fall'.
