I really hope they go with Phillip. It would be such a nice tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh and a major way to honor his service to the monarchy

I have a strong feeling Henry will feature as one of the child's 4 names

Prince Philip Charles Michael George

Throw George in there, so if he wants, he can choose to rule as King George VII (or eighth if Charles proves rumors true and he rules as George VII).

Why would she have stopped her son and daughter in law from using a name they wanted on the off chance that her then unmarried grandson might also have a son and want to use the name of James??? Seems a bit far fetched. Besides there is nothing to prevent William from naming his new son James. I don't think people would have trouble telling the difference between HRH Prince James of Cambridge and James Mountbatten Windsor, Viscount Severn. One will be famous all his life and the other today is hardly known outside of his own family and sites like this one.
Of course we have no idea if William & Catherine even like the name of James or have even considered it for their son.

I'm rooting for Philip for a boy. It's a lovely name, and would suit the future King of England quite nicely.

Queen Mary certainly thought so when she married Phillip of Spain.

I wonder if the name John will be used as one of the Princes names?

Wasn't Diana's father called John?

Who ever made it, doesn't know game of thrones well. They said it was sponsored by the North, home to the Starks and other non-Lannister supporters. Name the baby Eddard would be more fitting from the north.

We must think the same Countessmeout.

As I said before the birth: Prince Philip Charles Michael Henry. At least Prince Philip will be in the name because he was always there for Duke William. Prince Philip is the power behind the Windsor family. He especially took over when Diana, Princess of Wales died. Duke William and Prince Philip just got together a week ago. William is very close to his grandparents. And I think he might want to honor his grandfather because of his failing health.

It's not truly an off-chance; it's a monarch's name so it (and the other monarch names not in use) should be kept for the heir to the throne.

Edward and Sophie had the choice of thousands of names, while William and Kate are confined to only a few.

( I seem to recall hearing that Andrew was not allowed to name his daughter Victoria because Charles wanted it for his own daughter).

Yeah but remember the Lannisters are in control now. I thought it was funny. Joffrey isn't a bad name I can think of worse names in the world. I wonder if Will and Kate have watched or read Game of thrones.

Ok to be serious. George Philip Francis John

A monarch's name that has not been used for an heir to the throne, since James II. Well his son, James, the Old pretender, the father of Bonnie Prince Charlie. Just because Edward is further from the throne, doesn't mean he shouldn't be able to pick a family name. He is a royal, and therefore family names are also royal names.

It is rumored Elizabeth/Victoria are earmarked for children of the heir.

I read the books, so in my mind Joffrey is a thing of the past, dead a few books back.

North never bow to the Lannisters. Some of the pretenders do for some power, but Robert, Eddard and the true Starks will always be Kings in the North. Hence the war of the thrones, Joffrey may be in power, but 'The North' would never run a petition for Joffrey, unless someone like Ramsay Bolton was spear heading it.

Geoffrey though is a good royal name though.
