Victoria II would be world famous, Victoria would be lucky to be known outside of Scandinavia.
Cannot see any possibility of confusing the two.

And William and Kate's baby is due to be born in July, thus making it 36 years younger than Victoria, as stated.

I'd like to see the future monarch christened with a traditional but not commonly used name.

There are many choices for a girl: Alexandra, Charlotte, and my favorite, Augusta.

I think boys are harder. There seem to be a never-ending list of Henrys, Georges, and Edwards in the BRF. I believe myself that the current Prince of Wales will reign, if he accedes to the throne, as George VII.

How about going back further to some of the really old Anglo-Saxon names?
Alfred ("Prince Alf"?)
Harold
Edgar
Edmund
My favorite among these would be Edmund. For a young prince, how about Edmund William Charles Michael? He could reign as Edmund III or William VI (assuming his father reigns as William V).

The two Victorias might have the same birthday!

I kind of like the name Edmund. I also think the name Albert Edward Charles George has a nice ring to it.

Probably future Sweden Queen will ve Victoria I. She's already well known not only in the North Europe.

"Victoria" II certainly will be world famous this summer, but what will be in future totally depends of the ruling of her grandfather and father.

Sweden's Queen will just be Victoria until another Victoria becomes Queen in Sweden in later years. There's no need for an I.

It's a bit of a surprise to me that the bookies have tilted the odds so heavily in favor of a girl. I think people still buy into the idea that she "revealed" it was a girl...

The odds are still 50/50 either way.

If they chose Arthur they tribute English history and if a boy he'll be the most English Prince in how long? Since the Tudors, perhaps?

Arthur is also included in the names of George VI, Charles, and William allowing other names to be used. So I believe Arthur Philip Michael Henry is a fair bet.

I don't disallow Philippa as a name and I see Catherine as a strong possibility. William is devoted to his wife and Catherine needs to break free from being just the name of Queen Consorts. I believe more QC's have been name Catherine than any other name. So, Catherine Anne Philippa Elizabeth are my choices.

Whatever is chosen I hope the child lives a long and happy life, with much love.

I like the name Catherine, and I agree that it's about time such a name be given to a princess of the blood. Strange that it hasn't already.

It occurred to me that they could name a daughter after her mother yet spell it differently. Katherine.

I've never been a fan of naming children after their own parents and since it's not a tradition within the BRF (as far as I know at least) I don't think they'll pick William or C(K)atherine for this baby. I think they'll choose a name that hasn't been used in a few generations, in their immediate family, but still has a firm basis in history and tradition. Eleanor, Margot (variety of Margaret), Victoria, Arthur, Leopold, etc.

Btw... I'm not counting middle names here..

The last two queens, Elizabeth and Victoria, were named for their mothers, and then Victoria named her own first son and daughter after herself and Albert.

I hadn't thought of Elizabeth but Victoria's name Alexandrina. Her middle name was Victoria. It is true, she did name her oldest children after herself and her husband. Are there any more I forgot???

If William insists on naming his possible first born daughter after her mother Catherine. I don't see them changing the spelling of it due to that spelling is the spelling of HRH Katherine of Kent. If he wants Catherine as the name, I believe it will be spelled as her mother spells it. It would be a 'wicked' turn for all those 'Waity Katie' folks, wouldn't it?
