The couple told RTL that their daughter's christening would take place on June 25.

It's a girl for Amedeo and Elisabetta

If Charles and Diana had a third son, what would his name be? Edward? Richard? John?

Maybe Phillip?

Or perhaps Charles would have gotten his way, and selected Arthur?

Most likely Philip, in honor of his father, Albert, in honor of his maternal grandfather, or Charles, in honor of himself and Diana's brother, at the time, Viscount Althrop.


If it was a girl, and Charles had wanted a daughter, as reports have said, Charlotte.

Princess Charlotte of Wales.

Either Charlotte or Victoria of Wales. Sadly, they would have grieved worse over Diana's death, as mothers are the first impression on daughters.

I know it was said that Charles had reserved Victoria in the event that he had a daughter.

At least, that was the rumor when Andrew's daughters were born.

I think that's a sweeping generalization. I think the loss of any parent affects all of their children evenly, regardless of gender.

For Boys I like Alexander, Ivan and Leonard. Yet again that won't happen.
I love the name Edith. I hope it makes a resurgence.

I too like Alexander. It does appear sometimes as a middle name in the BRF, ie among the young royals it's one of Prince George's middle names and one of James Wessex's as well. It doesn't really have a British history I suppose, but I do wish it would be used as a first name, perhaps by Harry's son if he has one.

Close to the throne IMO they will stick to classic family names as first. We do see Alexander further from the throne in the BRF. Alexandra as a nod to Queen Alexandra is a very nice possibility.

Amanda, Erin, Jennifer, a little too common.

Edith I would love to see. And there us a family connection for the Brits. But I fear it may be seen as too old fashioned.

I also wish they would stretch but the thing is that James would be a stretch, how many more George and Edward's must there be? A thousand years of history! Open a book a try something that hasn't been done a dozen times already. I give props to WnK for Charlotte; even Kate's parents went out of the box and named their daughter after Queen Philippa.
Anne went way out of the box with Zara and I applaud her for it considering her name is Anne. Andrew and Sarah looked way down the list to find traditional but different names as did Edward and Sophie.

Doesn't the name James have a few negative connotations within the royal family so they had avoided using it for years. James, Viscount Severn was the first "main member" (if we can call him that, although he is a grandson of a monarch) to use the name in a long time. Princess Alexandra's son is called James I believe but he is obviously not as known.

Andrew and Sarah definitely went quite "out there" with their names. I love Beatrice's name more than Eugenie. I also wish Edward and Sophie had chosen Alice as Louise's first name as opposed to a middle name.

I think that James as being the name of 2 Stuart Kings who were nto very successful, isn't that popular with the RF.. and would not be chosen at present for a future King.

1. Charles was the name of 2 Stuart kings who weren't exactly successful, yet the Queen had no problem naming her son and heir that.
2. James is already used in the family by Edward's son.

It wasn't used in the RF for a very long time except for the Scottish Ogilvys. (James). there was a Charles D of Albany.. within the past 100 years.
and Charles II while not a very successful king, is popular and well known in "popular history" as the Merry Monarch, the philandering skilful politician etc.
