I think W&C will choose very traditional names with strong associations to the BRF.
I will be surprised if they use any names with a connection to the Spencers or his mum.

I would actually be surprised if their first daughter doesn't have Diana as a middle name.

William has shown many times that keeping his mother's memory alive is important to him and it would make sense as a middle name.

Archduchess Zelia, I agree that the Gloucesters chose meaningful and euphonious names for their three children. "Rose Victoria" is a perfect name for a royal child, but I don't think W and C would use it over again, or maybe they would. I have already said that I would like to see a Scottish forebear honored in a child's name, and that could be Margaret, Margery, or Robert, not to mention James. Incidentally, I read that Margaret means pearl. It is said to have been an unusual name from Central Europe (Hungary probably) when Margaret of England, raised in the "Holy Roman Empire," returned to the British isles and married King Malcolm. Margaret had many sons, one of them David, who became David I--that would be a good name for a king but people on this forum have said it has bad associations due to the Duke of Windsor's abdication. The name Robert was repeated a number of times for Scottish kings in the Middle Ages, Robert the Bruce being probably the most famous, and the father of Margery.

It's a real shame that the Duchess of Gloucester isn't more known here in Denmark, I don't even think the average Dane knows that she is Danish at all.

I also really like the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester's taste in names, all three of their children have really beautiful, traditional but yet special names.
I love that too. Lovely nod to their Mother's heritage.

Now that I hadn't heard. Last I heard, she was going to be Lady Diana. Thanks for the correction. :)

I really do hope that Charlotte makes a comeback, as it's just a lovely name and as others have said, could also be a tribute to Charles too. I also love Patrick/Patricia and neither one have been used in quite awhile either.
There were 3 Prince Edward's at a point (Earl of Wessex (who was 8 at the time of Duke of Windsor's death), Duke of Kent and Duke of Windsor) so another Alexander would not be a bad thing. Prince Alexander sounds lovely. I also hope Charlotte makes a comeback and it would be a nice tribute to Charles. I hadn't thought of it like that.

I can also see Sophie in there somewhere, as from the pictures I've seen, it looks like Kate and Sophie really get along well. Not only that, but w/the rumours of Sophie taking Kate under her wing after the Engagement, it would be a nice way to say "Thank you" to the Countess.
I would love it if they used Sophie for one of the middle names, as not only is a really nice name and becoming more and more popular again, it also has Royal history. It would be a nice tribute to Sophie, who if we are to believe the papers, has been a great help to Catherine. And we can see how much Catherine likes chatting to Louise, so it would be nice to see Sophie's name in their somewhere. Perhaps Sophie will be one of their children's Godmothers. The British Royals don't tend to use future Monarch's for their Godparent line-ups, so it would be nice to see Sophie chosen.

Personally I've always liked Arthur the best. I know the name as far as the British monarchy is only in legend, but I would love to see a King Arthur. Sadly, it won't be in this lifetime for me.

Adelaide is a name I would like to see come back into the Royals. I love James full name, especially the addition of Theo at the end. Theo is quite a popular name nowadays.

I like Prince George's full name as well as Lady Amelia Windsor's full name.

Stephen was only used once - by the 12th century usurper who broke his solemn vow to support Henry I's daughter Matilda (Maud) and instead stole the throne and sent England into such misery and Civil War that it was known, even at the time, as "when Christ and all his saints slept." I somehow don't think we'll be seeing it any time soon...

I agree. Lady Amelia has an excellent name: Amelia Sophia Theodora Mary Margaret. Both King George II and King George III each had a daughter named Amelia.

IMO it's not female names within the British Royal family that need a good clearout but the male ones. I have to say that I do wish that the BRF could break the cycle of Georges and Edwards, though I do understand the dynastic reasoning behind it. At least Charles and William will give a break from them for a while.

There haven't been any Henrys since the eighth one in 1547, so that could be due for a boy in the next generation, though I'm not keen on it as a name to be honest. I do like Alexander, which has been given to minor British royals since Victoria's day, and I love James. It would be great if George and his wife think outside the box a bit when naming the next heir.

I have to add Charlotte Elizabeth Diana to my list of favs.

I agree, boys' names in the BRF need a bit of an overhaul, but traditionally everywhere boys' names budge slower than girls.

Curryong, I agree that the male names need a good clearout. Two male names that could be the first name of the eldest son are Alfred and Edmund. Both King George III and Queen Victoria each had a younger son whose first name was Alfred.
