I would agree with that.

I like that name, Cecilia.

On another note, I wonder why the Queen Mother did not include her mother's name in her daughters names. They had room for them as Elizabeth has three names and Margaret had two.

Will the way she carries determine what name you select?

I really love Charlotte for a girl. For a boy, perhaps Albert? Seems it has been awhile since we had one of those. :)

Yes because having a 50/50 chance of being right doesn't have anything to do with guessing correctly

I think that many predicted George was a girl because they wanted a girl not because they really thought it.. I think they are going to choose classical names...

For boys the don't have many chances... Girl's name are more

That is correct, Kita.
Queen Elizabeth II's father was Prince Albert Frederick Arthur George.

Yes, but Earl Spencer recently had a daughter with his new wife, and named her Charlotte Diana.

No, no, no... all too continental bourgeois.

If she's glowing next time we see her, perhaps Boniface.

Nicohlas ? You mean Nicholas or Nicolas.

Nicolas is not a Name for a royal Baby.

If I'm correct (and I could have misread) every British prince or princess descended from Queen Victoria and Prince Albert born in Victoria's lifetime had either "Albert" or "Victoria" in their name except for their daughters Princess Alice and Princess Louise (the latter who had "Alberta" in hers). There were other British princes and princesses born in that time frame, but they were of the Hanoverian line, and didn't have either of the names. This is completely a tradition - I think two names being used more than 30 times in 3 generations counts as a tradition. It stopped almost immediately though; Prince George, Duke of Kent was born the year after Queen Victoria died and didn't have the name.

I kind of think the contemporary Arthur/Albert pattern is not necessarily a static tradition like the Albert/Victoria one so much as naming children after people. There are people and historical figures you can connect to each of Charles, Anne, Andrew, and Edward's names. Some of these same names repeat in William and Harry's names - I kind of think William got his middle names from his father (Arthur), grandfather (Philip), and father's mentor (Louis), while Harry got his names from his father (Charles) and great-grandfather (Albert). George in turn gets a name from his grandfather (George) and father (Louis).

Based on George's name, I would predict that this child - boy or girl - is going to get the name of a previously reigning monarch that isn't in use right now regardless of gender, and two other names that reoccur in the family but aren't necessarily obvious choices.
As far as I know, every female grandchild of Victoria had her Name, for example Victoria of Hessen-Darmstadt (1863-1953?), married to Louis Mountbatten.

Albert/Alberta - I don't know.

What's about Victor for a boy and Alberta for a g-irl ?

Obviously a typo.... Nicholas is a fine name for a prince.
