And in the United Kingdom we have no idea who any of those men are I imagine. The most obvious "Dick" is "Trickie Dickie" aka Richard Nixon.

What bearing do Prince Andrew's middle names have on the naming of Edward VIII a man born 66 years before Andrew?

I think Sarah just meant Andrew has 4 of the David's names. Andrew Albert Christian Edward...

Lord Mountbatten was "Dickie" too. Notable in that "Richard" was not one of his names. Perhaps he liked birds, i.e., Dickie Bird.

Courtesy of Wikipedia;
Young Louis's nickname among family and friends was "Dickie", notable in that "Richard" was not among his given names. This was because his great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, suggested the nickname of "Nicky", however it got mixed up with the many Nickys of the Russian Imperial Family ("Nicky" was particularly used to refer to Nicholas II, the last Tsar) so they changed it to Dickie

"Trickie Dickie?" No one here called him that. They called him "Tricky Dick" amongst other things.....my father hated that SOB, but certainly not "Trickie Dickie."

Just to make some fun:

What about Princess Beatrix for a girl, and Prince Benedict for a boy?

Her Majesty would love that.

You type Tricky Dicky (alright I used ie instead of y) into google the first result you get is Richard Nixon. I've always heard him referred to by both American and UK people as Tricky Dicky.

And we all know about the aversion Her Majesty has from the "A" word.

Ah, of course. However I'm sure that won't dampen Elizabeth's friendliness towards Beatrix.

Of course not, Her Britannic Majesty knows that the "A" thing is "typically Dutch".

Yeah! Hey, the Giraffe predicted that!

If Will wants to honor his mother with the name "Francis" for a boy, this would not stop him, I would think. I can see Francis/Frances as part of the child's name.

Yeah, you predicted that, Gracie!

But Prince Pope of Cambridge also has a chance.
