Its not stupid if someone's guess but I do think its highly unlikely as there is currently a James in the immediate family. If William is like Charles, he doesn't think you should name a child after a current member of the family

So here are my guess now that we are down for the count.

For a girl: Victoria, Elizabeth or Alexandra with a tribute to Diana and Carole as a middle name (maybe Frances)

For a boy: George or Phillip with a tribute to Charles and Michael as a middle name

Godparents:
Harry
Pippa
a van Custem
Tiggy

Well, Diana is his mother and people have been none to name their children in honor of a loved one....so that brings Elizabeth, Phillip and Charles into the mix as well. Though I agree that naming the child particularly a daughter after Diana, brings comparisons that no child should have to live with...that's why I think it will be Frances instead of Diana.

As evidenced by the fact that we have such an interest in this baby this isn't just an ordinary child...this child will one day (if nothing happens) sit on the throne of the Commonwealth. Giving the child the name Elizabeth and/or Charles continues the legacy with a Elizabeth III or Charles IV. Not that the child has to have a first name as her/his regnal name (i.e. Albert becoming George VI).

I like traditional names however I am hoping Kate and William (with approval of the queen) do their own thing. Perhaps a little more modernized names.

I like modern names, but for a royal baby, especially one that will be king or queen one day, traditional IMO is the only way to go. King Brooklyn or Queen Harper just wont work.


Prince David Philip Francis Charles

Princess Alexandra Elizabeth Frances Caroline

If it's a girl I'm hoping for Alexandra, Charlotte or Alice. I don't think they'd use Carole for a middle name but maybe Caroline. I'm not really a fan of the likely boy names.

How long do we think we'll have to wait before we find out the name?

Okay, so Hello said that the Queen has to consent to the name that William and Catherine choose. So who consented to Edward's name since she was the Queen by that point? Just asking.

Presumably HM is able to give consent to the name of her own children.

I would prefer that a girl not be named Diana because of the comparisons but, on the other hand, why not? There are going to be comparisons no matter what. William loved his mother and has made it clear that he wants to honor her memory as much as possible (i.e., the engagement ring). It also may help the royal family move on. Eventually, people will eventually hear "Princess Diana" and think first of William's daughter rather than his mother.

If it is a boy, they may name the child Philip or Michael, but probably not Charles, as there will be two Prince Charles for at least a decade.

It won't be James...James viscount Severn is Williams cousin, Prince Edwards son and only 5 years older.
