[QUOTE=Kit;1422366]Hasn't Queen Victoria stated that there should never be another Queen Victoria after her ??QUOTE]
Seems a bit unlikely since she wanted all her female descendents to bear the name Victoria and quite a few of them did. 111 years after her death I don't think her wishes will be taken into account anyway or that anyone would worry about it one way or the other.

Concerning the war between Stephen and Matilda, the heirs of William the Conqueror.
My ancestor Fulbert the Saxon fought for Matilda, who lost, and Fulbert was offered lands in Scotland by King David I, in recompense. There were a number of "Matilda"s at that time, a very popular name both in Scotland and England. But I think both of those names evoke civil war, not success. Margaret of Scotland was a successful Queen, making vast reforms, which were carried forth by her son David I. She also became a Saint of the Church. She was raised in exile in Hungary and brought with her the Hungarian courtiers who became the core support of the Jacobites, when the Stewarts came to the throne of Scotland.

Margaret Rose was a lovely name for a Princess.

I don't like Mathilde, either. Isabella is also another version of Elizabeth and so is Isabel, so I wonder if we'll see some of those. However, I don't like the nickname for Augusta, which is Gus. I quite like the name Georgiana, but not really that many historic British royals had that as there name.

Philip I or Philip II? This is main problem.

I like Georgiana too :-)
for the BRF the first name of the child doesn't necessarily need to be the name they will later reign under (for QEII it was, but at least the 4 monarchs before her had a different name..)...
Maybe they will choose something different all together (Rihanna Britney Victoria :-) )

I like Victoria but I don't like Rihanna or Britney; somehow I don't think those names will be chosen. Victoria will probably be chosen, I think. However, in the BRF they do change some monarch's names, for example, George VI's real name was Albert and Victoria's real name was Alexandrina. So if Kate and Wills decide to choose something a bit more unique, but have a traditional middle name, they'll use that name from their Prince/Princess years right until they reign.

'Adolf' for a european prince i think is off-limits for a couple of more decades (at least)... even if it is a familyname..

I like the name Georgiana as well, and the only famous British woman that I know of with that name is the Duchess of Devonshire. It would be nice to have that name brought back though. It's very pretty, and sophisticated.

For the love of all that is holy, I hope they'll stay away from Rihanna and Britney. These names work for pre-teen and teen girls, but when one reaches a certain age, the names are just wrong. I prefer to see a name that can work for a child as well as an adult, which may very well mean sticking to traditional names only.

Can they not give her a first name but as Queen she will have another name? Like the Queen's father being Albert but as king took the name George.

Princess Alice Victoria Elizabeth Carolina

Somehow I think that Kayla or any other modern names will be chosen. I prefer traditional names like Louise or George and I think they'll choose something more along those lines. I'd also quite like to see the name Isabelle, but somehow, I'm afraid that's not gonna happen...

It would be Philip I. We have never had a King Philip in the UK. Philip of Spain was the consort of the reigning queen.

On websites and in books, it doesn't say Philip of Spain's name as King Philip, rather than 'Mary I with Philip.' So yeah, it'll be Philip I, or a totally different name like Charles or William (depending on the middle names).

I think that first name will be regnal name. We live in internet times, and princes can't easily change their well-known names.

William and Catherine:
For a boy: I think a James would be nice, but then again there's the little Viscount Severn and it might be a bit too confusing with two James' close in age. Then there's George, obviously, as another option, but it just seems so old-fashioned to me. For middle names, Philip, Charles, Louis or Michael.
For a girl: I'm still sticking to either Mary or Margaret and I'm sure there's gonna be a Diana in there somewhere, maybe with Elizabeth and Victoria as the last two names (presuming that W/C will give their children four names). For middle names I'd also love to see either Alexandra, Charlotte, Anne, Philippa or Alice.

Guillaume and Stéphanie:
For a boy: I'm not even going to try to guess one particular first name because I have no clue about possible name traditions in the Luxembourgish Grand Ducal family. I could imagine they would use names like Jean, Henri, Philippe and obviously Marie as a middle name.
For a girl: I wouldn't be surprised if they gave a firstborn girl a double name in honour of Joséphine-Charlotte. Maybe Joséphine-Thérèse or Thérèse-Charlotte, which would be nice combinations of Guillaume's mother and grandmother's names. Then there is Alix which I'm sure is going to be there somewhere, maybe even in the first name.

Victoria and Daniel:
For a boy: Still hoping for a Carl-Johan or a Carl-Oscar over here! Carl-Oscar (or Johan) with Olof, Gustaf and Johan (or Oscar) attached to it (probably in another order). Besides, Carl-Johan would be a really nice homage to the late Carl-Johan Bernadotte.
For a girl: Oh boy, after Estelle it could be anything really. Being a traditional freak, I still kind of hope for an Astrid or a Désirée. For middle names, maybe Joséphine, Anna, Christina, Alice or Lilian (crossing my fingers for that last one).

Why not a new princess Charlotte of Wales, Princess Charlotte of Wales - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I also like the names Emma and Eleanor, it's been a long time since there was a queen Eleanor in England, it was a very popular name during the Middle Age. I like the story of the Eleanor crosses, after Eleanor of Castile, Eleanor of Castile - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, that her husband let erect after her death, a story about true love between a king and his queen.

It also would be nice if William and Catherine would name their daughter Caroline. There has been a Queen Caroline of the United Kingdom, as the consort of George IV.

I doubt that Victoria and Daniel will chose a traditional name for a boy either, if they continue with the E-theme there is Eugen, Edmund (after the king's father), Erik, Eskil.

To continue the E-theme there is the old Scandinavian name Estrid, there have been a Swedish queen with that name: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estrid_of_the_Obotrites

She may have been a queen consort, but she and her husband were estranged, and she was never crowned.

I would prefer Carolina as it is like a combination of Carol and Diana :-)
