One of the tabloids a couple years ago was thinking about royal names for a Cambridge baby, and they came up with Mary, Alice, and Rose as the most likely. I do not know why Rose is a royal name, other than Princess Margaret Rose had it as a second name, and one of the Gloucester women is Rose Victoria Christabel (which I think is a divine name, and Lady Rose is elegant herself!) I love the idea of "Hello English Rose". What a lovely idea!
While my original comment about "England's Rose" was a bit tongue and cheek, I would agree that floral names for girls is to me quintessentially English (and Victorian), and what is more traditional a flower than the "English Rose." There's also something a bit modern to it as well. Hard to get the balance of traditional and modern right as I think this child will not live the "goldfish bowl" existence of the British princes/princesses of yesteryear but will grow up as normally as can be allowed.

Margaret Rose was known as "Princess Margaret Rose" while she was a child. Hard to think of the Queen frowning on Rose as part of a girl's name, esp. given the memory of her dear sister.

There is Lady Rose Gilman - she is Rose Victoria - but I don't think she has Christabel in there. Her grandmother was "Alice Christabel" (Divine) and Rose's daughter is "Lyla Beatrix Christabel" (equally divine)

Alice Rose for a little girl is wonderful. Princess Alice Rose. Rose added to any first name really brightens it up. I'm not partial to "Margaret" but "Margaret Rose" really sways me.

Love them both! Charlotte Rose or Eleanor Mary.

I hope you're reading this, Will and Kate.

Eleanor could be called "Ella" or "Nora"... Although I think it stand nicely on its own.

In regards to "Rose" - I agree that it would be a wonderful choice. It does seem to be a nice complement to any name... I can't remember... Is Gabriella Windsor's middle name Rose?

James would be a nod to the Stuarts and William is a scion of the Stuarts through his mum

Gracie Giraffe, "Alice Rose" is very nice but with Princess in front of it you have three monickers ending with "s" or "z". That encourages hissing. Nice on paper but say it out loud. "Margaret Rose", on the other hand, had a euphonious balance. Something like Rose Amelia has the right outloud sound. Or Rose Victoria like Lady Rose Gilman. Rose Catherine would be odd but has that same euphony. Rose Diana would sound great, but most of us here pull back at directly using the name. For me, the name Diana means a Greek goddess and that does not correlate with British queen. I do like Rose Catherine.

I see what you mean. It makes sense to roll the name off the tongue to feel what it sounds like.

Kind of like Princess Penelope Phillippa Priscilla Patricia would sound like giving someone the raspberry.

Somehow " HM Queen Rose" just misses the mark, maybe more appropriate for a bar maid or an elderly char lady.

Queen Rose sounds like a transvestite showgirl.

I do think it has to be "Name Rose" if they are going to use Rose.

Osipi, are you suggesting a Princess Pee-Pee???????

Rose would be ok if buried in a string of names. Princess Margaret supposedly complained to her mother about only having 2 names and people calling her Margaret Rose and of course as an adult she dropped the Rose forever.
