I've enjoyed putting a bit of thought into this :)
A daughter: Margaret Elizabeth Victoria; other possibilities Mary, Frances, Anne, Alexandra, Rose.
A son: Andrew Charles James; with other possibilities George, William, Albert, Louis, John, David, Richard.
[Edward VIII had seven Christian names, so there's a precedent to use plenty!]

He did do that, but the reasons were to give a sense of continuity to his father and the stable monarchy. In effect, Geroge V followed by George VI - as if Edward VIII never happened.

I think that what the child is known as is what their regnal name will be (this is discussed at length on the thread concerning Prince Charles). Very difficult to "change" one's name in the world of mass communication

I also think they are a quite traditional couple.

Whats is so yucky and silly about this? it is quite obvious whomever asked this question was not being serious, Grow up and keep your Camilla hatred to yourself, The duchess of Cornwall has her own grandchildren whom are named after her, she doesn't any other children. Pathetic!

Well call me crazy but I can easily imagine Camilla as a royal godparent. Nothing silly about that if you ask me.

If the baby is a girl, how about Amanda or Alexandria? Or Elizabeth. I like the name Victoria but you already have an heir to the throne who has that name.

If the baby is a boy, how about Nicholas? Or Matthew perhaps.

Nothing against Prince Charles, but I don't particularly like the name Charles.

The name should be one that's not overused or one that sounds like something you would name a future King or Queen.

As far as godparents, at least one of them should be an heir to a throne. Perhaps Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel could be one set of Godparents.

That certainly would be my assumption. Although now that I think about it, doesn't the automatic Prince/Princess only go three generations?

As things stand right now if it is a son it will be HRH Prince X of Cambridge. If it is a daughter it would be Lady X Mountbatten Windsor. I would guess should the child be a daughter HM would issue Letters Patent making sure all of Williams children are born HRH Prince/Princess.

Even the press are taking this question seriously

Prince or Princess, what will William and Kate call their first child? | The Times

I like Arthur, but as someone said, probably they wouldn't use that. Although if the child eventually becomes King, he wouldn't have to use Arthur as the regnal name.
I like Alexandra, Caroline or Charlotte for a girl.

Would have to think more about godparent possibilities.

Both Queen Elizabeths were/are dominate queens, so that is very highly possible. The old knows the first queen by right being Elizabeth III highly possible. There may be a Victoria in there, the rest is up for grabs. A king named after his living uncle, unlikely. George Albert then maybe a Phillip somewhere is a possibility.

Monarchs can take any name they want to reign under, even one that is not amongst their given names.

I do like the idea of calling a little girl Elizabeth it would be a great tribute to the Queen and Queen Mother. Victoria was said to be a favourite of Prince Charles if he ever had a daughter not sure if William likes it though. Also I hate the idea of her being called Vicky or some nickname. Charlotte, Alexandra, Alice and Amelia are all lovely. And yes I can see Diana being used as a middle name, William gave Catherine her engagement ring so I can really see that happening if it's a girl. Don't like the name Albert for a boy besides Prince Albert of Monaco is already around. George and Phillip are both nice names. They could surprise us and go with something a little more modern as a middle name and call the baby that but officially they are known as something more traditional. Why would Camilla be a god parent when she is a step grandparent it makes no sense. God parents are chosen so if something happens they can help raise the child Camilla is too old and I see Catherine and William choosing their own generation as godparents. Harry, Pippa, I would love Peter or Zara and some royal from overseas and old friends are most likely. It's going to be an interesting few months......LOL

Here it is - I do subscribe

Although the sex of the royal baby is not yet known, speculation is already rife over his or her name.
Bookmakers believe that the most likely names are Mary, Victoria or Frances for a girl, and John for a boy. Among the least likely names were Wallis and Fergie.
The odds that the Duke of Cambridge will name his first-born child after his late mother, Diana, have been judged at between 9-1 and 12-1.
Odds of 9-1 for the name Frances were given by at least two companies. Frances was the middle name of Diana, Princess of Wales, as well as her mother’s first name. The name Elizabeth has odds of 16-1. As well as being the name of the present monarch and her mother, three of the Queen’s granddaughters (Zara, Beatrice and Louise) have it as a middle name. Elizabeth is also the middle name of the Duchess of Cambridge and her mother, Carole.
The Duke of Cambridge and his father the Prince of Wales both share the names Arthur and Philip. Arthur has been given odds of between 16-1 and 20-1, with Phillip judged more likely, with odds of between 10-1 and 12-1.
Bookmakers are also offering odds on a whole host of baby-related issues, including how much it will weigh at birth, who the godparents will be and what hair colour the baby will have. Paddy Power are offering odds of 6-1 that the baby will have ginger hair.
Predictions on the parenting website Mumsnet ranged from Mary and Matilda to Edmund and George. The social networking site Twitter was alive with suggestions ranging from Charles and Benedict to Phoebe and Genevieve.
#UnlikelyRoyalBabyNames was trending on Twitter last night with suggestions including Leroy, Tupac, Apple, Justin Bieber, Dave, Fanny and Bruce.
Bookmakers offered odds of 1,000-1 that the baby would be called Waynetta or Chardonnay; Wayne, Kevin and Sharon were given odds of 250-1.

This is related- for whom are William and Catherine godparents? I think Wills serves for Viscount Severn,Prince Konstantine Alexios, a Van Cutsem and they probably are more. But I have never heard anything yet about Catherine being a godmother. Anyone with a good memory out there?

William is not godparent to Viscount Severn. According to Wikipedia he has three godchildren: Prince Constantine Alexios of Greece and Denmark, Tom Pettifer (son of Tiggy Legge-Bourke and pageboy at William & Catherine's wedding) and the adorable Grace van Cutsem, whom I'm sure we all remember from the wedding. :)
