Quite right, but is the baby not due quite close to Xmas?

Yes it's due in the December.
I don't see them going for Winter Phillips because that would be a tiny bit cheesy due to the babies mother being named after a season.

Carrying on the seasonal theme, how about Jesus Phillips, or Santa or Poinsettia Phillips?

Or Holly, Ivy, Noelle, or Natalie for a girl; and Noel or Nathaniel for a boy... Eh, I can't see most of those being viable options really. Perhaps Noel for a boy but I'm not feeling the others.

I do doubt that a boy would have a first name of James since Peter has a first cousin named James now.

No, nor did I think any of the "seasonal" names I suggested would make the cut!

Although Jesus is used as a first name in same Christian countries, and of course in the Arab world, the northern European Christian countries have tended not to use Jesus as a first name seeing it as sacreligious. The Royal Family sticks to tradition a lot and this is one tradition that I don't see being allowed for the eldest great-grandson (as Jesus is a boy's name) of the Supreme Governor of the Church of England, and she gets to approve the names.

Thanks for confirming my understanding of the English language used in Britain. I was surprised to see a Brit suggest an Americanism for a British season, which is why I raised the point - nothing about the name of the child but about the actual language used.

Maybe Autumn will choose a new name altogether like some celebs do or name the first child after her relatives. What is Autumn's mum's name?

Perhaps I was being facetious, and you missed it!

^The Twilight names are very nice, specially Jasper
I would love them to use Kelly if it's a girl.
Maybe they will use Kitty, or Anne, or Elizabeth. There are lots of possible combinations.

I think Peter and Autumn will go for something traditional, yet not so old-fashioned.

I'd expect Emma, Amelia, Charlotte, Alice or Mary for a girl. Louis, Alexander, George, Alfred or John for a boy.

For a girl, I'd suggest Emma Anne Elizabeth or Amelia Anne Elizabeth.

For a boy, I'd suggest Louis Philip Peter or George Philip Peter.

I like Emma and Louis, traditional but modern.

Congratulations to the happy couple and to Her Majesty on becoming a great-grandmother!!!
For a boy, I'd suggest Andrew and Charles. For a girl, I'd like to see Anne, at least as a middle name. Elizabeth and Margaret are also great choices!

Phillipe or William.
