I've heard 5 days (minimum) to a month (at most). I would lean toward the earlier guess. If not I think we may all go bonkers!

Edward VIII was named after his Uncle - Albert Victor who was called 'Eddy' in the family and died - George V was very close to his older brother and Mary had been his fiancee.

Edward VII was never called Edward in the family - but Bertie.

I don't mind waiting for the name, but hell, I'm Danish so I'm used to it anyway

I'm pretty certain he's gonna be either George, Edward, Richard, Arthur, Alexander or Philip. George and Edward are the "safe" bids, very traditional names that wont surprise anyone. Richard, Arthur and Alexander are the refreshing wild cards. And finally, Philip is what I hope it'll be. I was initially guessing that Zara's bub, if a boy, would be named Philip, but I can totally see William and Catherine using it.

I'm thinking if they call the baby George it won't be George Michael way too many bad jokes. George Charles Michael Philip maybe? They are pretty smart I'm sure they are doing rhymes etc and nicknames a name could have. It is one of the disadvantages of Philip as a first name it's usually shortened to Phil or Pip.

Given that Prince Charles will certainly take George VII, and he and Diana zeroed in on William as super-safe, and there are several Unfortunate Options (Henry [IXth], Richard [IVth ], John, James, and even Edward [IXth]), gotta figure another WILLIAM.

The story - unverified - is that when William was born Diana wanted to name him John, after her father, and it got nixed.

What are the chances of a William nicknamed and called Liam?

I don't think there is any certainty about that at all. Infact after being known by the public as Charles for 65+ years I think it is highly unlikely he would ask the public to now think of him as George once he comes to the throne. I thonk the days of monarchs adopting new regnal names are over.

I think Philip would be a nice name for the new Prince - royal enough but not as common as George or Edward; also a very nice tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh.

Now that little Prince Cambridge is here, I would like to see them honor Prince Phillip, I am just glad he is still around to see the heir to the throne X3. I know him him and William are close, so I like
Prince Phillip Michael Charles Louis
Prince Phillip Arthur Francis David

I am really hoping for Philip. It would be such a great way to honor the Duke of Edinburgh.

My guess is: Philip Charles Michael Henry James

honoring great grand father, grand fathers and uncles - Longer than normal I realize.

Okay to please a certain group

Dian Francis Spencer

King Dian (nice ring to it.)

George Edward Charles Phillp

James is the name of Viscount Severn since he is only 5 I think it is safe to say that name is off the table.

I think W & C will try to keep the name private for as long as they can. Just as they relished that time right after the birth, before all the world knew of the arrival. I think it might be a couple of weeks - if it isn't leaked. They seem to do a good job of keeping things private (I.e. baby's gender, due date, whose home they are at). I admire that they can do that, and believe their circle is very tight and loyal. Unfortunately for us royal watchers, we may not get as much info, pictures, etc. as we like.

I think W & C will really set some new precedents in the raising of a royal.

I think the name will come very soon, as soon as they go home. This is 2013.
