If it's a boy, maybe they'll be really inventive and go back to the Wessex roots with Godwin or Harold. I wouldn't suprised to see a George, Arthur, Anthony, Alfred, or Richard in there somewhere, either. Leopold sounds more German than English to me, like Adolphus or Ernst.

I'd love "Godwin Philip George Alfred Windsor-Mountbatten, Lord Wessex." (As long as the kid can run fast, there's no problem at all.)

For a girl, maybe Charlotte or Alice. They could win a lot of hearts if they found room for a "Diana" in there, too.

I'd be willing to bet, kalnel, that neither Diana nor Wallis will be in contention.

I like both Elizabeth and Alice, especially. I also like the suggestion of some older, Anglo Saxon names for boys.

I am not good at the guessing the name thing but here are a couple of ones I like.

Girl: Charlotte, Emily, Victoria, Georgina, Helen (I do like Elizabeth, Alice and Mary but they are already in Lady Louise's name)
Boy: Phillip, Hugh, Louis, Christopher, David, George

Since Lord Nicholas Windsor has a little Albert now, how about

Victoria Georgina Charlotte

Gotta believe that Victoria will figure somewhere in the name. Didn't Queen Victoria state that all of her descendants should have a Victoria or Albert in the sequences of handles?

Cheers!

On second thought, they may very well go with Philip as the name if it's a boy, particularly since it's the 60th wedding anniversary year for the queen and Prince Philip and a boy would carry his title. Albert may now be out of the running because of Lord Nicholas Windsor's son Albert Windsor. I still think George is a pretty good bet for a first name as well because of its use in both the British and the Greek royal families. George Edward Philip Christopher or Philip Edward Christopher George or some combination of those four names. I don't think Sophie would be a big fan of some of the more old-fashioned names like Arthur, Alfred or Leopold, though I could be wrong. Alfie is a big name right now in Britain.

If they aren't saving Victoria for Prince William's first daughter, that might be a nice choice for a girl. It's the only royal name they didn't use for Louise. They could surprise us with a girl's name that no one else in the family has ever used. There's precedent with Zara Phillips' name and I think they might feel they have more leeway with a girl's name, particularly since she wouldn't be inheriting Prince Philip's title. Sophie liked "Daisy" as a first name for Louise and maybe she'll get her wish with her second miracle baby. Sophie might well like a lot of the girls' names that are on the popularity charts right now in England: Amelia, Amelie, Charlotte, Chloe, Emily, Freya, Georgia, Grace, Imogen, Isabel/Isabella, Isla, Lily, Lucy, Matilda, Olivia, Phoebe, Ruby, Zoe. Georgia and Charlotte, at least, sound pretty royal and there's some precedent.

If the Queen and royal handlers have their say, it'll probably be another name with strong ties to the Battenbergs and/or the Greek family: Alice, Victoria or, going even further afield, Cecile/Cecilia/Cecilie, Irene or Marie. I don't know if they'd reuse names that are already in use for the other royals. There probably won't be another Alexandra, Helen, Marina, Margarita, Feodore/Theodora or Sophie/Sophia. Countess Julie/Julia von Hauke was sort of the "founding mother" of the Battenberg line and Julie was one of Prince Philip's mother's names. A Lady Julia or Lady Julie would be a real statement to anyone out there who looked down on the Battenbergs. Elizabeth is the obvious choice, but somehow I don't think the Queen wants a namesake granddaughter.

I really wished I liked the old anglo-saxon names but I really don't so for me I would love to see something unique. This child isn't really inline for anything so why not? I would love to see some originality in the Windsor family for once. I love Zara's name, so I would love to see something along those lines.

Smile More predictions...

I am always eager to find out the latest royal baby names...I love the history that comes with them. In my own reading I have learned that there are some traditions - like not using names already in use by another royal - that could impact on the Wessexs' decision. Some names are supposedly "jinxed" as well (Stephen and John in particular). I don't know how modern royals will feel about that, however. So, keeping everything in mind, I have come up with some predictions of my own, though admittedly I have not put any money on them.

Top 10 Boys Names for the newest British Royal
1. Thomas
2. John
3. Edmund
4. Edgar
5. Robert
6. Albert
7. Leopold
8. Alastair
9. Geoffrey
10. Patrick

Top 10 Girls Names for the newest British Royal
1. Mary
2. Caroline
3. Eleanor
4. Augusta
5. Adelaide
6. Cecilia
7. Constance
8. Joanna
9. Georgiana
10. Marjorie

I'd love to hear what everyone thinks about my predictions. They are all historic British Royal names, although some have not been used for centuries. I know Louise is a good Victorian name, and those have been quite trendy with this generation (Beatrice & Eugenie), but I think some Georgian and medieval names might start making a comeback.

I like a lot of the names on your list of predictions, though I don't think Edward and Sophie are likely to go for names that are too old-fashioned or outside the mainstream. Probably no Thomas because it hasn't been used recently and isn't very royal. I don't see Robert or Geoffrey as first name possibilities either for the same reasons. John is considered "jinxed" and probably wouldn't be used. Leopold is one they'd probably judge as too out there and old-fashioned. Patrick is a distinct possibility, as is Albert, Edmund or Alastair. They've all been used for the current generation of nobles closely related to the royal family and are fairly fashionable sounding. Albert would have been my top choice of name prior to Lord Nicholas Windsor's son. It looks like Nicholas and his wife stole all the names I would have expected for Edward's son, actually! Lord Nicholas and wife Paola's son's full name is Albert Louis Philip Edward Windsor. I wonder if they ran any of those names by the Queen and Prince Philip or by Edward and Sophie beforehand or if, perhaps, Edward and Sophie know they're having a girl and gave Nicholas the OK to use "their" names? I also wonder if Antony has a chance of being in there somewhere because it's one of Edward's own names. Duncan, too, since it was used as a middle name for past royal princes. My personal bet is still on George, with Philip, Christopher and Edward as the middle names.

Your girls' names are all more interesting than the name I think Sophie and Edward will end up picking for a girl. Mary is the only one I might be willing to bet on, mainly because Sophie's mother Mary recently died. I really like Georgiana and Augusta. Cecilia is interesting and is a recent royal name. It was also the name of one of Prince Philip's sisters, the sister who died in a tragic plane crash with her husband and children. If they wanted to honor Philip and use a name they didn't use for Louise, that might be an unexpected way to do it. It would be nice if they would go back to those really antique sounding names, though, wouldn't it? I tend to think we'll end up with a name that's been used before and probably in the last three or four generations.

I think if we get Viscount Severn--Philip is a good chance for the first name.
Philip Edward Christopher William (named for grandfathers, father and cousin)

A girl---I would opt for Victoria or Mary. We haven't had a Victoria in the RF in sometime and Mary--well the countess' mother? I really think they would "save" Elizabeth for William.
And in thinking of secondary names for the new Lady Windsor-Mountbatten, it's tough because I think Lady Louise has all family names covered. So I will hazard a guess here---
Victoria Anne Elizabeth Mary?
Mary Victoria Margaret Elizabeth?

I tell ya--girls names are tough this go-around. I cannot wait to find out!!!

I have a feeling that if it is a girl it will be Mary, in honor of her mother. Maybe Philip for a boy. Elizabeth should be for William's daughter.

In the next few weeks this thread will be closed, as the name of the little Lord or Lady will be revealed...

My guesses remain the same...Philip or Helena.

Regarding godparents, I think they'll choose low-key people that they're genuinely close to. I can imagine them choosing close friends, or members of the BRF (perhaps Princess Eugenie or Lady Helen Taylor?), and if they decide to choose a foreign royal I think it'll be Mette-Marit.

Look back to when Louise was named. Actually that is a over speculation - January.

I think you are right to predict names that have not been in use for a while but have royal tradtions and origins.For a boy I like Robert or Patrick athough I jam sure Philip would be in there some where just not as a first name.
I don't see Mary being used because they have already used in Louise's name.Caroline,Augusta,Eleanore or eorgina are strong contenders I also think Victoria and Helena are good choices for a first name.Anne and Philippa are good choices for other names given Prince Edward's closness to his father and sister.

I think the delay in releasing Louise's name was the difficult birth, and Sophie's illness following the birth. Perhaps with Louise being born premature they hadn't decided on a name...or perhaps they had more important things, or rather worries, on their minds.
