I can't see William and Kate or Harry having a daughter with a name that doesn't fit in with their set of friends' children and Charlotte does, while I suppose Cynthia and Constance (lovely name) would seem a bit old fashioned.
I suppose the Alexanders among the Ogilvies is a tribute to Princess Alexandra. Things there have settled down considerably between Marina and her mother since earlier days.
Olivia was one of the outside runners when Kate was expecting Charlotte I believe, and forums like this one were speculating on names!

I see Charlotte as rather old fashioned, I assumed it was chosen as a royal name and a nod to Charles. But yeah I dont believe that W and Kate have much imagination or ideas, they would probably be put off names because they don't fit in with their friends' kids names!
I just think that Alex Christian and Chris Alex is a bit silly... really they have a reasonable choice of names, why not spread themselves a bit..
Notice that Marina has put Ogilvy back into hr name, after her divorce..

My favourite royal name for a boy is-and probably will always be-Alexander.

For girls, I can't make up my mind but Alice, Victoria, Elizabeth and Helena are pretty high in the list.

Please note that a number of off-topic posts have been deleted. This thread is to discuss in a mature way your favourite royal name, not an excuse to make fun of the choice of names that some people give to their children.

Olivia There was no way WK were naming their child something so unroyal. Especially after George. Olivia may be OK for Pippa or a friend but not for the future 2nd in line. WK kids will all have boring/traditional overtly royal names. The most we can hope if a 3rd, they go back further and at least choose something not over used. There are a few Middleton names that fit, but I doubt it, other than Mary but again a too boring and common used, no surprise.

Edith: Carole's paternal grandmother, Edith was name of Edward the confessor's wife. She is said to be a fan of Downton Abbey.

Jane: 2 of Carole's great grandmothers. Also Spencer name. Jane Seymour

Emma: Mike has a great-grandmother Emily. Emma of Normandy.

Constance: Mike's maternal grandmother. Constance of York was granddaughter of Edward III. Constance of Normandy (daughter of William the conqueror.

Mary- Mike great grandmother, 2 queens and many others.

Amelia: Carole's great grandmother, daughters of George II and III.

Thomas: Carole's great grandfather. Son of Henry IV.
Stephen: Carol's paternal grandfather, King Stephenee
Richard: Michael grandfather, three kings
John: several in Kate and Spencer tree, doubt will ever use

Lupton names include Arthur, Elinor, Charles, William,
Frederick: Michael grandfather. father of George III. son of George III. brother of George III.

They lose the right to their first name, unless 1. the queen makes them a princess in their own right 2. they become queen (kate would be Queen Catherine as queen consort) 3. they divorce and then their name would be Kate, Duchess of Cambridge or Chelsy, Duchess of Suffolk, the title being a last name.
To be fair, that didn't stop anyone from calling Diana Princess Diana.
I think Kate and William chose good names for their children unique but traditional and not boring or overused like Anne Mary Elizabeth.
I do wonder how Elizabeth and Phillip came up with Andrew.

It was the name of Phillip's father.

Charlotte perhaps (though William has a cousin with the exact name minus Elizabeth, born in 2012). But George? Unique Not overused Mary has not been used as a first name since George III used it for his 11th child in 1776. Mary of Teck married in and Princess Mary was born Victoria. Anne hadn't since 1709 with George II's daughter. Charlotte was last used in 1796, so more recent than Mary.

Andrew was for his grandfather Prince Andrew.

I wouldnt say that Anne was over used? I can only think of Anne...the Pss Royal at present. I think that they could have gone a bit more imaginative fro George, poor little tyke... I DO think of it as an old fashioned name.. and I think that without going mad and going for Brett or Bradly, they could have picked something more unusual. I like Charlotte, and it is royal and classic.
Re other royal names I do think that there are a huge number of Alexanders and Alexandras out there in the RF's of Europe and Nicholases. If I were a royal mum I would REALLY Say no to Nicholas.

Why?? I don't know what matter if Nicholas in Sweden and Denmark. One thing if you have close family who used it. Not a fan of heirs having similar names but that isn't an issue with the new generation : Leonor, Elisabeth, Christian, Estelle, Catharina-Amalia, Ingrid-Alexandra and George. Only close will be if Guillaume has no kids and Amalia is heir, but Felix didn't know that. Oh and Jacques.

If you want to name your kid Nicholas, and you are neither Fred/Mary or CP/Sofia or Vic/Dan, go right ahead. They are only 2 Nicholas of that generation. Alexandra you have Norway and masculine I guess in Sweden. Eleanor and forms (Spain/Belgium/Sweden) seems most used in this generation in major houses (not going into defunct houses and minor branches).

Last generations it was Philip (Spain, Belgium and Sweden), William (Lux and UK, Guillaume is a form).

Anne is under used IMO.. I recall the name of one of Queen Anne's tragic children Anne-Sophia. I especially like Anne when paired with a beautiful girl's name. I hope Will and Kate read these threads, George, Charlotte and Anne-Sophia. I am about to swoon .

George and Charlotte are just classic royal names (and Charlotte was already making quite the comeback among girls' names before she was even born - I know of several). If they were to choose Anne-Sophia (hint, hint), that name and would shoot right up there too.

Exactly so, IloveCP!! Charlotte complements George nicely. George III's Queen Consort was Charlotte. Thus the Cambridge children pay tribute to George III and Queen Charlotte.

Very few British royals seem to give their children double-barrelled forenames, do they? There were some in former centuries, but it seems to have been a custom the BRF left to Continental royalty. Even in the mid-19th century when combinations like Emma-Charlotte and Georgina-Anne were popular, Victoria never indulged herself.

Not sure matter of not indulging The Hanoverians showed their German roots.George I was George Ludwig (he and his 6 siblings all had double). Both his kids, George Augustus and Sophia Dorothea did. George II had Frederick Louis, George William, William Augustus, the girls had 1. Fred had Augusta Frederica, Edward Augustus, Elizabeth Caroline, William Henry, Henry Frederick, Louise Anne, Frederick William and Caroline Matilde (only George III didn't). George III had Frederick Augustus, William Henry, Edward Augustus, Augusta Sophia, Ernst Augustus, Augustus Frederick, Adolphus Frederick, Sophia Matilda, Victoria had Albert Edward. Her son followed, only double for eldest Albert Victor. It ended with them though Margaret was often Margaret Rose.


Only ones before I recall is right before. James I 1st son was Henry Frederick. Charles I had Charles James, Mary Henrietta. Anne had Anne Sophia

I don't think it will happen. I doubt if there will be another baby and if there is, they wont use a name that's already in use Like Anne, and they wont use a double name..I'd go for Alice, if they did have another baby or if Harry has a daughter..

It was a marvelous tribute that Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip used Alice as one of Princess Anne's middle names.
