Has anyone raised the possibility, that if it's a boy, it can still be named after Diana by calling him "Francis?"

Francis Charles Phillip Michael
Francis is a too French name for a British King.

Of course, naming the baby Philip will be a wonderful tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh. But, again, sounds too French and Spanish.

We can stick with the good and old George for this baby.

Not these days. I dont think anyone in the UK would blink at Philip and the possibility of King Philip in years to come. Sounds good to me.

Very few people know history these days.

I've always felt if a boy,that Philip is a VERY strong option. What better way to honor a man who has been sp close to William. HM would be thrilled

Which is a very sad thing.

But I'm a traditionalist, and I hope this baby, be it boy or girl, will have a very traditional name. I'm still recovering after Estelle and Athena.

I don't think you have much to worry about here, although if the name is outlandish, the internet commentary is much more fun.

Yeah, now I remember that "Albert" (a German name) entered in the British Royal Family with Queen Victoria's beloved consort. The same can goes for "Philip".

Well, but those names have history within the British Monarchy.

There wasn't any Francis. And Philip, of course, will be a reminder of Philip II of Spain.

Sadly, as Cepe points out, I doubt most people will be reminded of Phillip II.

In fact, sadly, most people will assume that the child is named after Pippa, forgetting the D of E.

He was never King of England so there is no "history" in that sense. But if you like a name, why avoid it after 450 years (ish)

Well, according to Wikipedia, he was King of jure uxoris.

Not in our history.

But I think it is probably a George, or a James.

Im still voting for a Charlotte Rose. That is for both William's father and (in a way as England's Rose) his mother as well, although that isnt why I chose it. I just like it. And I hope that's what W&C do too.

James is good. Little Lord James Wessex would never be called "Prince" so there could be no confusion. Michael and Charles could be middle names to honor the granddads. James Michael Charles Phillip. Prince Jamie.
If not that, Charles Michael Francis Phillip. Prince Charlie.

Or Alice, if need be. Alice Elizabeth Carole Diane.

I hope the Wessexes are godparents. They will have an influence anyway, as the families are friendly.

There's also Catherine's brother. James would be such a lovely name for a future King, but I doubt they're gonna use it as a first name. It would be a great secondary name though.

Another name for a girl that would be definitely seen as a good regnal name would be Alberta. Personally I really don't care for the name and when one thinks about it, it could also be a nice salute to Canada. Maybe as a second name? Can't wait to find out what they actually do name the baby.

It might be the other way around on that.

William was named after Prince William of Gloucester, son of Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester and a cousin Charles greatly admired.
