I think it is time for another Queen Victoria, It's been long enough. However It was 349 Years before there was another Queen Elizabeth.

I don't know, Queen Victoria was so "grand", so unique... I can't imagine a Queen Victoria II.

But I can pretty well imagine a Queen Elizabeth III. Share the name with Gloriana and Elizabeth the Great will be a honor for Baby Cambridge, if it's a girl.

True, Good point. Actually Victoria could pretty much be called: Queen Victoria The Great. Kind of like Alfred. Not comparing the two but in a sense Victoria was Great and probably only one of the very few british monarchs who could be called that.

A Elizabeth III will still have a lot to live up too when comparing with I and II but probably not as much as a Victoria II

I like Elizabeth as well and I agree with you, there should be another Queen Victoria. I really like the name. Sophia is also a nice name, we haven't had a Queen Sophia in the United Kingdom yet.

You can't imagine it, but Victoria herself fantasized about it, insisting all female descendants be called Victoria.

Well, Victoria is a beautiful name. The last Crown Princess here in Hawaii was named Victoria. Plus Queen Victoria had been named the godmother of our little Prince who passed away when he was just a child. So Victoria was and still is a popular name here. I would not mind another Crown Princess Victoria.

If it's not from a news source, assume it's a false rumour.

Well, I've finally had to limit myself as I'm starting to check too many online sources too often! LOL. So many rumors & false leads out there. I figure I'll stick to checking this forum when I get up, at midday, and before I retire for the night. I know it'll be posted here within seconds of it being made public that Catherine has entered the hospital!

Maybe now I'll get some housework (ugh) done!

I still think that, for a girl, Caroline would be a beautiful tribute to Carole Middleton. Victoria would be a nice name, too.

Just to clear up the 'Big announcement' on 'Prince Harry's' Facebook page

It now says -

Prince Andrew becomes first member of the Royal Family to tweet under his own name… Twitter @TheDukeOfYork

A Pretty Good article on what lies ahead between the Cambridge family and the media.

Why wouldn't he be on Facebook? I have friends that are pretty famous, not royal, but well known across many continents. On was guest of Prince of Monaco week before last. You can have public and private profiles that only your friends can see.

I'm stuck on David. It's time for David. I think it could be Charlie, though. Prince Charles has never been Charlie, and so the nickname would be easy. I see the headline: Bonnie Prince Charlie. Charles David Michael Stephen, including the grandfather of Catherine who served with...was it Prince Phillip? Stephen would be a GREAT name for the prince, although the last King Stephen wasn't too great. Just a nice name. King Stephen, beautiful. Stephen David Michael Charles.

Oh, when do we stop this?

I don't think Adolphus and Augusta will be chosen, but it's just a thought.
Adolphus IMO is too close to Adolph (Hitler)I don't see it being used. Mary Adelaide not only being a Princess of Cambridge, and Lilibet's great grandmother, seems more likely.Especially since Mary has more a royal history to it.

Adolphus was the first duke of the fourth creation, but not the first duke. The title was extremely popular with James II, he tried and failed to give it to four sons. Two survived long enough to hold the title, James and Edgar, both by his first wife. Two died before they were a year old, and were styled but never officially declared Dukes of Cambridge Charles (son by Anne, who was born before they wed) and Charles who was of Mary of Modena, both died as infants. The third creation was George II. So we could have a Charles, James, Edgar or George (also Adolphus' son and Mary Adelaide's brother who was the last Duke before William).
