I've always liked Adelaide. I knew a girl a few years ago with that name, and I always thought it was really dignified and nice.

As a child, she was called Addie and then she went back to using Adelaide as an adult, so it's got a cute nickname option for when a child is young.

I understand that. I'm saying that you put Victoria in the wrong group. There has not been a Victoria as a Queen Consort, but rather one as a Queen Regnant.

I put both reigning Queens and Queens consorts in that group.

"Elizabeth" was there as the name of two reigning Queens and of some Queens consorts.

"Victoria" was there as the name of Queen regnant.

"Adelaide" was there as the name of Queen consort.

Adelaide is a lovely name, and the much loved Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen would be a great namesake.

But this baby will be the British Monarch, a traditional name is necessary. If it's a boy he'll certainly have the name of a previous British King (most likely George or Edward), if it's a girl, she'll will be named after one of the Queens regnants, or after a successful Queen consort (like Elizabeth, Victoria or Charlotte).
One, you never mentioned anything about Adelaide; two, based upon the phrasing of the last bit of the post I just copy/pasted, it certainly does appear you're saying Queen Victoria was a consort. I wouldn't have bothered to reply to that post if I didn't think you said something in error.

Adelaide is one of my favourite names for a baby girl of my own! It's such a regal name to me.

I'm going to bet money that WnK will give their child a standard boring name. Though I will give credit that Diana and Charles went for a William which I believe hadn't been used since the 1700's. I highly doubt they would go for an Adelaide, heck even Victoria would be a nice change. Wasn't there a Queen Charlotte at one time?

IIRC...Charlotte has not been a happy name.

William IV was the monarch before Victoria, and HRH Prince William of Gloucester (d1972) was the Queens first cousin.
Queen Charlotte was the consort of George III.

I hope the Cambridge baby is a boy with a good traditional British name.

Has there ever been a female monarch with a 'double' name? Willem Alexander and Juan Carlos I can think of, of course, but was there ever a Mary Elizabeth, or a Sarah Jane, or similar? I think I would remember, but...

There has never been an English/British (and I think even Scottish) monarch with a double name, regardless of gender.

We almost had a few, the closest being Albert Edward and Alexandrina Victoria, but both went with their second name instead. I believe Mary of Teck might have had two names prior to her husband's succession.

Setting aside the fact that neither the Linleys nor their children are HRHs, and their chance of coming to the throne is pretty much nil, what exactly is unsuitable about the names of their children?

I've often wondered if their daughter was named after her grandmother or her grandmother's favorite drink.....

I think there's a difference between suitability of the names of the HRH's (including James and Louise Wessex whose title is an enigma) and those who are not.

I've no doubt, as Brazilian Empire suggests that this baby will receive a traditional name. The most exotic we will get is Frederick or Adelaide.

I was thinking the same thing. Viscount Linley's children are named Charles and Margarite - perfectly suitable and lovely names.

To of their middle names may be a bit out of the box (Charles Patrick Inigo and Margarita Elizabeth Rose Alleyne), but certainly not unsuitable, especially for two people so far down the line of succession. Inigo was the name of a famous English architect, while Alleyne is a beautiful old German name meaning "precious".

You never know, maybe William and Kate will go for Aelgifu, Aelfthryth or Aethelflaed? Or Sigrid. Or may personal favourite - Ealdgyth. All perfectly traditional with roots in the Royal Family history (all names of previous Queens Consort).

Jokes aside, I would also love Emma as a name of a possible daughter, although not the first-born one. Emma of Normandy is one of my favourite historical characters.

Oh my God. Did you bothered to read the entire paragraph?

I said "Queen regnants, or after a successful Queen consort." Then, I listed names of reigning Queens and Queens consorts.

Try to read with more attention next time.

Not to offend anyone But if it a girl I hope they do not name it after Diana! I have heard people's say the thing and I have too agree. I can see it as a middle name but not as a first name. I know Diana was very much loved, had lot of people's who worshipped her and is William Mother and is the Baby late Grandmother but I can't see them naming it after Diana and one of the reasons is that the future daughter would be continually compared to her Grandmother Diana! Also since it will be Third in Line and the first born They will go with a traditnal British Royal Name since it will be the Furture King or Queen. If Diana is not a middle name then they could name the second or third one after Diana as the further away from the throne the more freedom they have.

I said this before but If It a Girl I think they will name it Victoria or Elizabeth and if it a Boy it will be George or Edward. Those have been the most popular names in the Royal Family from last 300 Years Along with William, Anne, Charlotte, Arthur, Albert, Margaret, Beatrice.

I have never expresses that I hope Diana isn't use as a name before, this is one of the reasons I hope they are having a boy. I do not dislike or hate Diana but I am tired of the worship of her.

It's sad that tr name is going to have to be boring, an Alexandrina or Victoria would be a nice change while at the same time being historical.

That's it, I am now definitely rooting for Aelfthryth if it's a girl

I read it as if you listed the Queen consorts too, but what does it matter? Now we know what you meant.
