I hope that they don't use the name Oliver.
It does not have any positive Royal history to accompany it and it is too common and trendy as a name these days.
It's a guess but my money is on 'No'.

It's William's first cousin - so baby's second cousin, once removed, if it's the second cousin's child. Fairly distant.
No, Viscount James is William's first cousin - therefore James is Baby Cambridge's FIRST cousin once removed. Viscount James children will be second cousins to Baby Cambridge.

They can give the baby more than four names, if they want. And to honour all relatives.

Wow, that could mean a lot of names. In no particular order: Charles, Michael, Philip, Francis (for Diana), Edward, James, George, Andrew, Henry.

I think there are different understandings of the types of cousins depending on background and nationality.

I had never heard of 'once removed' when referring to cousins until reading this board.

My parents' first cousins have always been my 'second cousins' and that is how my friends etc refer to the same relationship. The children of those cousins are my 'third cousins'. It is quite simple - count the degrees of separation and that equals the cousins. That is how it is done in my circles and so none of this 'removed' stuff.

The 'once', 'twice' etc, removed is common heard here when talking about relatives...also common to hear 'first' and 'second' etc cousins.

I didn't realise deciding who was a first cousin once removed etc. was such a big topic! I am not familiar with the terms as I refer to my cousin's children as cousin's as well because it makes it easier!

Back onto the main topic though, I am still rooting for Alexander or Arthur because they are both lovely and Royal names. I cannot wait to find out who his godparents are and I really cannot wait to see the group photo and the little Prince in the beautiful christening gown. Viscount Severn looked huge in the new gown, whereas the other babies didn't look so large in it. Perhaps at 4 months old he was much bigger than anticipated! I wonder if William and Catherine will wait until the baby is a few months old before his christening.

Oh I just say "distant cousin' as it's easier!

I think the new prince needs a good robust name by the looks of him, so I think It will be George.
George Charles Albert Philip or James Charles Albert Philip/George.

I think any subsequent sons will be named Philip, Michael or James.

I'd love to see Prince Arthur, I really like this name! James would be good too. What do you think about Henry? I know it's a name of the baby's closest uncle, but he's called Harry, so Henry for the little one will still work I guess.

I don't like George, so hopefully they won't pick this one. However, Gregor or Gregory sound great!

I would also like Philip and Alexander; but Geoffrey would be an old royal name, and not used by anyone in the British Royal Family now...

In my country people are suggesting Jeoffrey as a good name for a pricne. They're laughing about it, because Jeoffrey is a character from Games of Thrones. As far as I know (I haven't watch that show), this character is rather unlikeable or something.

Personally, I really like this name. It remainds me of Geoffrey Chaucer.

I do agree Baby Cambridge looks like a Prince George!
However I am still holding out for Prince Albert Philip Michael Henry of Cambridge
I really like Arthur too or Alistair, as someone suggested earlier although I think the latter is unlikely.

Hopefully we will know soon!

I like Alexander for the new baby! Or could they surprise us all and use something like Christian?

The Game of Thrones characters is called Joffrey and pronounced Joff rey, not Jeoffrey or Geoffrey.

I think they'd be less likely to use the name Spencer than anything else; (I don't believe the animosity between the Windsors and the Spencers has diminished).

I hope they do choose James; I much prefer that to George.
Besides, I think they might want a Scottish name.

Most of these names are just so old fashioned. I do like Alexander though. Maybe Alexander Charles Philip Michael.

I'm hoping they don't go with George because he doesn't look like one to me. If they must, I hope it's as a second third or fourth name (or even a second son!), but seeing as Charles and Diana didn't give it to either of their sons, I can't see it being a requirement for William.

I also hope that the name reveal comes sooner rather than later! This being such a major decision for the couple, it is kind of an indicator of how much or little their independence will mix with the traditional roles they must play. To be a fly on the wall!
