Unless the Queen issues new Letters Patent, if the baby is a girl, she will not be a Princess until her grandfather becomes King. She's be Lady X. If the baby is a boy, it would be Prince X of Cambridge.

I think QEII will leave her as a Lady and allow her to become a Princess under KCIII.

I do not care for the name Arthur, and I think it's another that has been regarded as bad luck, since Henry VIII's brother Arthur died without ever ascending the throne.
It just seems sort of dated.

As for the name Charlotte, since Earl Spencer just named his baby daughter Charlotte Diana, I think the Cambridges will avoid that as well.

Boy: William Michael Phillip Charles
Girl: Elizabeth Catherine Diana

I hope they don't use Arthur or Diana. Arthur is a bit too cliche (King Arthur), and I don't think I need to explain why Diana won't be the best choice for a first name. I hope to see an Isabella or a Grace (yes, I know the latter is more than unlikely, but it's still a nice and regal name) for a girl, and maybe a Nicholas for a boy. I also like the name Sophia, but since there's a Sophie in the family already, they'll probably avoid that name to prevent confusion.

I'm not sure about the godparents, but I do hope to see maybe the Countess of Wessex, since it appears her and Catherine have developed a bond. It would also be delightful to see Harry and Pippa in the mix, along with some friends outside of the royal circle.

Girl names:
Alexandra Victoria Francesca Beatrix
Georgina Francesca Victoria Alexandra

(2nd daughter)
Cecilia Caroline Charlotte Catherine

Boys:
George Francis Edmund Charles (1st son)
Alexander Frederick William James (2nd son)

(Francesca honors both Diana & her mother. Beatrix honors Diana's favorite grandmother who was also very close to Charles' grandmother.)

(Cecilia=Queen's grandmother; Caroline=Kate's mother, Charlotte=Charles)

(George in honor of the Queen's father, Francis in honor of Diana,
(Edmund for Diana's grandfather, can be replace with Edward for Diana's father but don't really care for that since it's William's uncle's name.)

I know royal tend not to have nicknames but I do like Frankie & Georgie whether boys or girls.

Godparent: Princess Anne to mend fences for not being selected as godparent to William.

First names for a girl:
- Elizabeth (Elizabeth I and II, Kate's second name)
- Victoria (Queen Victoria)
- Charlotte (Princess Charlotte of Wales, tribute to Prince Charles)
- Mary

If the tradition of 4 names holds, then I'd put my money on Elizabeth Diana Caroline Philippa or Victoria Diana Elizabeth Caroline.


First names for a boy:
- Charles (Charles I and II, Prince Charles)
- George (George I to VI)
- James (all the Kings of England and Scotland named James, plus Kate's brother)
- Henry (Henry I to VIII, Prince Harry)

If the tradition of 4 names holds, then I'd go with George Philip Alexander Michael or Charles Alexander Michael James.



As far as Godparents go, I'd expect to have:
- A member of William's immediate family (almost certainly, Harry)
- A member of William's extended family (one of the cousins like Peter, Zara, Beatrice or Eugenie)
- A member of the Spencer family (one of William's cousins)
- A member of Kate's family (probably, Pippa)
- A mutual close friend (one of the Van Cutsems or Tom van Straubenzee)

Also possible:
- Another family friend or couple's friend
- A member of Camilla's family (Tom or Laura - quite possible seeing as William appears to be very friendly with them and little Eloise was a bridesmaid)
- A member of one the royal houses, most probably one of the Greeks such as Crown Prince Pavlos (to honour Prince Philip's side of the family)

Godparents of Queen Elizabeth II: King George V (paternal grandfather), Queen Mary (paternal grandmother), Princess Mary [Viscountess Lascelles] (aunt), The Duke of Connaught (great-great-uncle), The Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne (maternal grandfather), Lady Elphinstone

Lately, they seem to be the kind of family that avoids having more than one close living member with the same name, while reportedly the Queen has give her blessing to the name and rejected Andrew and Fergie's choice of Annabel.

So possible names for a boy are likely Alfred, Edmund, Geoffrey, Lionel, Stephen, and Thomas. Possible names for a girl are likely Adela(ide), Alice, Arabella, Augusta, Constance, Emma, Frances, Isabel(a), Joan, Juliana, Mary, Matilda, and Maud. I am not sure how close William is to the Spencers, Margaret's family, Kents, and Glouchesters so I think Alexandra, Amelia, Cecelia, Charlotte, Eleanor, Gabriella, Helen(a), Victoria; Albert, Alexander, Arthur, George, Frederick, Leopold, Michael, and Robert are still possible too.

Unlike Sophia and Louisa, I think Caroline might be different enough from Carole to be used too. Victoria may come with too much weight. Charlotte was reportedly the name Diana wanted to use if she had a girl. If they are going with a name no living member has then the bookies might be right with Mary. While I consider Caroline, Mary, Alice and Alexandra too,

I vote for Charlotte Elizabeth Diana Carole

Arthur is used as a middle name and thus I do not think they see it as cursed like John and Richard. I believe Charles wanted it too, and Diana rejected it. While I consider George, Robert, and Alfred (Alfie) too,

I vote for Arthur Charles Philip Michael

I would like the godparents to be Harry, Pippa, Guy Pelly/Thomas van Straubenzee or a Van Custem, Alicia Pitt-Fox/Olivia Beasdale or another friend, Zara and Konstantinos-Alexios of Greece (william's godson/distant relative).

Well, we can easily predict what Baby Cambridge's middle names will be, as the pool of names for either sex is rather limited for future monarchs.

My guess is that Alexandra, Elizabeth, Mary, Victoria will most likely be in the mix if Baby Cambridge is a girl.
if Baby Cambridge is a boy, Arthur could definitely make an appearance as it is the middle name of Philip, Charles and our Papa-to-be. Charles, Philip, Henry, Edward, and George - some combination of these names will be thrown in somewhere as well.

My guess for names NOT to be included are David (abdication crisis) and John (unlucky within the family from what I recall).

I think either one of Kate's siblings and Harry will be god Parents. CP Pavlos or CP Felipe could be GPs as well - the families were close (are still close? not sure!). CP Hakkon is my wildcard for GP. The Van Cutsems and the Van Strabenzees would round out my guesses.

Hi,

I do like the name Charlotte. It hasn't been used since 1817 and may be consideed cursed also because of Charlotte's death then.
But, has Philippa been considered yet here? That name is very ancient and would be an honourable one; also recognizing her great grandfather.

I like James for a boy, as it would further honour Scotland.

Yes, John and Stephen are both considered unlucky in the British royal family due to the only 2 British Kings with those names. I also think it is very telling that there hasn't been a James since James II. Considering that James was run out during the Glorious Revolution I tend to doubt that name will be resurrected now.

I also HIGHLY doubt Arthur will be chosen as a first name. Because King Arthur only brings one image to mind. And not all of the connotations are great, after all his queen ran off with his best friend (not sure adultery is something this family is keen to reference in even a vague way at this point). Then of course there is the eldest son of Henry VII, who died so young and whose widow became the first of Henry VIII's six wives. I do think it is a name that the family has historically liked for a middle name but I don't think it's one that they would have use for a first name even before the marital troubles that plagued the last generation of royals. Now I doubt it will show up at all.

Charlotte is a really pretty name!

I like James...a monarchal name, a strong name. Could be a middle name, but unlikely a first name as his cousin's name is James.

On the off-chance of twins I'm going to go with:

Boys:
1. Phillip Charles Arthur William
2. Patrick Michael James Thomas

Girls:
1. Charlotte Elizabeth Diana Catherine
2. Caroline Francis Philippa Mary

Boy then Girl:
1. Phillip Charles Arthur William
2.Caroline Elizabeth Diana Philippa

Girl then Boy:
1.Charlotte Elizabeth Diana Catherine
2.Henry Patrick William Michael

Edit: I don't think there have ever been twins in the direct line of succession in the BRF, have there?? With the association of hyperemesis gravidarum with twins, I'm hoping for such a situation!
