The Phillips fame seem to lean toward unique names -- with the exception of Peter. We have a Zara, an Autumn, a Savannah, and an Isla. I wouldn't be surprised if Summer and Winter soon join the family

Boy - PHilip, after his grandfather Tindell and g-grandfather DoE

Girl - who the heck knows!

Godparents: I would say William because they are close; Ian Balshaw who was Mikes Best Man (if a boy) and Dolly Maude who was Maid of Honour if it is a girl. Peter or Autumn

I think Zara and Mike will choose something a little less "royal" and traditional than William and Kate, but not too out there. Maybe something similar to Isla and Savannah.

I doubt we will ever know who the godparents are, we will be lucky to know the childs full name.

Zara and Mike are both pretty public figures, and on twitter and such. The names of their children are more likely to be public knowledge than Peter's.

Savannah and Isla are traditional?

Autumn was not born a Philipps, so wouldn't think her name would factor in here.

No, I said I thought they would choose something less traditional than William and Kate. I could see them choosing the name Alice, though. Just maybe not Anne or George.

Alice is one of Anne's middle names.

Yes, a good reason to choose it.

I agree, I don't see them being a traditional couple, and I doubt they will choose a traditional, royal-sounding name. If it's a girl, I think they'll choose something like Zoe, Sophie, or Vivian. If it's a boy, I hope they will choose something associated with family, but not too "royal", like Michael (Jr.), Mark, or Phillip.

Sophie and Philip (Countess of Wessex, DOE) are very royal, even Michael to a lesser extent. Vivian is also an old fashioned traditional name, though thanks to Brangelina it is coming into fashion. Zoe is really the only untraditional one in your list.

Sophie and Philip are both more Continental royal names, and less British royal names. Michael's similar as well, although it has been seen in the BRF.

Zoe is actually an old Greek name that's become a modern English name - both traditional and new in one go.

Philip being the name of the DOE, whether he was born a Greek Prince or not, firmly embeds Philip now as a BRF name. There is also Mary I's husband. As with many of the other names, names often come from other countries via marriage. Victoria was introduced by Queen Vic's German mother of the same name. She was named Alexandrina, as Victoria was thought too German for a possible heir to the throne.

Sophie/a has been well established in the BRF, since the Hannoverians came to the throne.
Sophia of Hannover-mother of George I, granddaughter of James VI and I
Sophia Dorothea-daughter of George I, Queen of Prussia
Amelia Sophia- daughter of George II
Princess Sophia of Gloucester-niece of George III, by his brother William
Princess Augusta Sophia-daughter of George III
Princess Sophia-another daughter of George III
Princess Sophie of Prussia, later Queen of the Hellenes-Victoria's granddaughter
Since it has not been prominent but the Earl of St. Andrew's youngest daughter is Lady Amelia Sophia Windsor. Though by marriage, we also have Sophie Wessex, and Lady Frederick Windsor (Sophie Winkleman).

If either Sophie or Philip were chosen, I doubt anyone would not say they chose a royal name, one from the royal family. Yes Mike may have Philip in his family tree, but it's like saying if Will and Kate have a daughter and name her Elizabeth, they are naming her for Kate's middle name/mom's middle name/and Kate's great grandmother.

Other than spellings, or new 'american' inventions, most popular names have old roots to them.

I think they will chose a tradition name. They might not be traditional but IMO their child's name will be.

Maybe they should try out how the names will be pronounced in different languages first (zike pronounced in dutch is rather a crude word)

Zara is not "out-of-blue" name like Savannah/Isla.
It was specifically chosen by her uncle The Prince of Wales. It has some special meaning in Greek or Latin, dont remember.
Anyways I am sure the baby will not have the British-Royal-Stereotype-Name
There can certainly be some "modern" names or "modernised" names, like Xan (DoG's grandson). I am sure there will be two names max. But definitely not as modern as Zike/Mara..
And as for godparents, this speculation will remain a speculation forever...

And "Mara" is a gay expression in Brazil.

Zara means "Princess".

I have now googled. Zara means Princess in Arabic.
But while naming Zara Phillips, Charles' intention was the Greek meaning--"The rising sun" or "Bright Dawn"..

I was thinking Alice too. Not to ordinary and still a family name. I can see Zara with an Alice. Not sure about a boy's name yet.
