I've read it was Diana who wanted to name a girl Victoria....hence my thoughts that William and Catherine might name their daughter that as a less obvious tribute. I think Victoria is a lovely name. Is Sophia a British name? I've always liked that name as well....

I heard it was Diana's too.
It is not, their English version Sophie is more common . regardless it would be a beautiful choice.

Another poster beat me to the answer, but I think the origin of 'Sophia' is Greek. I like that name too, and 'Sophie' could always be the informal version.

The D/DssOC will provide a new 'Princess Diana' of Wales, and Monaco will give us a new 'Princess Grace' of Monaco. I give credit to my ouija board for these predictions.
I like many of the names presented by other posters. I do like Alexandra, and my favorite is Michaela. There is less finer line for boys' names, but 'Prince Philip' of Wales is probable, as the Duke of Edinburgh has just made 90.

I can't imagine William and Catherine would choose Sophie as their daughter's name, as his aunt is called Sophie. I know many of the Royal family use the same names (Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex and Prince Edward, Duke of Kent being one example), but I can't see William calling his daughter Sophie, as it's a bit too close to home with his Aunt still around. Perhaps Sophia could be a middle name. I like Victoria Sophia, sounds nice. I think most of the Queen's relations have Elizabeth thrown into their name somewhere. Is Zara's middle name Elizabeth?

I like the name Zara. It was quite different for the Royal family, particularly at the time. Did I read above that Charles chose her name?

Should William & Kate use Elizabeth as a name for their future daughter it would honor the Queen, Queen Mother, Mrs. Middleton and Kate herself.

Cynthia is a nice name as well. The name of Diana's grandmother. I love the name Elizabeth too. Very pretty and traditional.

I have read elsewhere that it was HRH the PoW who suggested his future niece's moniker.
As for the future Mrs. Tindall, her full name is Zara Anne Elizabeth Phillips.
I do believe she turned 30 years-old in May, 2011.

I would love to see the name Eleanor back in the BRF.
I personally don't like the name Eleanor, but it definitely would be a step up for this family. I'm still waiting for someone to name a son Stephan. As for Alexander John, I love the name Alexander and I think it transcends borders, but I heard that the royal family stirs clear of the name John.

Why does the RF stir clear of the name 'John?' What omens, do they believe, await a Prince/Duke/Viscount John through his life?
As names are very old-fashioned and traditional, usually, within the RF, I hope the D/DoC name their future(?) children popular but traditional names. There are many names from which to choose in this particular category. I do believe the current monarch (at the time) has last say-so on the name of a child born into the immediate RF????

I would like to see the Cambridges present us with Philip for a boy and either Diana or Elizabeth for a girl, with preference to Diana, IMO. Somehow I can more easily imagine Prince Harry naming a daughter, Diana, as his children will not have the same glare of publicity as the Cambridges.

I meant steer to stir; my bad. John might be avoided for a Prince early but I read that John is avoided because of Prince John (Richard I's brother who usurped him) and Prince John the youngest son of George V and Mary who was born with epilepsy and died young.

Full Names:

Females
Elizabeth Alexandra Mary

Margaret Rose

Zara Anne Elizabeth
Gabriella Marina Alexandra Ophelia
Alexandra Helen Elizabeth Olga Christabel

Males
Charles Philip Arthur George
William Arthur Philip Louis
Henry Charles Albert David

Individual Names:

Female: Elizabeth, Alexandra, Rose, Catherine, Sophie/a, Gabriella/e, Ophelia, Diana, Charlotte, Adelaide, Zara, Caroline
Male: Philip, Arthur, Henry, William, David, Edward, James, Andrew, Christian, Alexander

I'd love to see Alexandra/Alexander used as first names more often, and Charlotte/Caroline/Adelaide used more often, period. It'd be sweet if one or more of Prince Charles' future granddaughters has Charlotte or Caroline as a middle or first name, as the former is a feminine diminutive of Charles and the latter is the feminine version.

I'd LOVE to see Alexander and Charlotte used as Christian names in the family. They haven't been used for such a long time. Alexander is one of Viscount Severn's middle names, but i'd love to see it as a Christian name and the same with Adelaide. Adelaide is now quite "modern" yet we know in the Royal family it has a lot of history. It would work in today's society, and I also think Addy is a cute shortened version. :)

Adelaide is modern now? Good for....it
Knowing William and Catherine, I doubt they are going to bring new blood into the baby naming game. Though props to Kate's parents for going outside the box and naming their second daughter after Phillipa.

Even though I adore the name 'Elizabeth', I would wish that William and Catherine would use a different form of it, like perhaps 'Isabella'. It's different, but still traditional and regal-sounding. For a boy, I would love to see 'Nicholas' make an appearance. There are different variations of that name too, but I do not see them naming their son 'Nikolai'. It would be a little too out of the box.

May I ask how you know William and Catherine?

Which Phillipa did the Middleton's name Pippa after? I hadn't heard that they had named her after a specific royal Phillipa so I am interested in hearing which one and your evidence to support that statement.
