Yes she could or she may not.Edward might raise objection for all we know and she tends to give in to her kids more than is wise at times.

I've read many, many times that the monarch has some say in the names of each HRH.

Victoria - the ultimate control freak - demanding that all her descendants be named in honor of herself or Albert

Speaking of Victoria, George IV, who was regent, would not approve any name for her except for the then outlandish Alexandrina Victoria

George V would not approve of "Ann" for Margaret

Not sure this is true; the Queen would not approve of "Annabel" for Beatrice

The current Queen has been pretty hands off with the lives of her grandkids. Peter, Zara and William all lived with their future spouses before marriage. So I don't see the Queen rejecting any name that William and Kate come up with for their second child. I also don't see Prince Aston Villa Rules of Cambridge in the future 😛

Peter and Zara are not in the same royal league so to speak as William. William and Catherine are conservative enough and respectfull enough not to name a daughter Arwen or a boy Moon boots to where she would have to step in anyhow. But if she felt the need I bet she would.

I honestly believe they will choose a traditional royal name that has not been used recently such as Arthur,Alfred or Mary, Charlotte ,Eleanor.

I fail to see how Peter, Zara, or William living with their partners before marriage shows that the Queen is hands off in their lives....

It's said that following the divorces of Charles, Anne, and Andrew the Queen declared that her children and grandchildren would have to have lengthy courtships before she would allow them to marry. Her grandchildren living with their future spouses can actually be seen in line with that.

I would think those whack marriages made her be more watchful and weary of who her children and senior royal grandchildren want as mates.

That was why Edward and Sophie waited for nearly 6 years to marry - the longest courtship at that time, until William and Catherine (though they broke up during their long courtship I believe...). Sarah Ferguson said that that was the reason she and Andrew divorced.

Quote:
Both Diana and I and our mistakes all those years ago have meant that Katherine and Sophie (Prince Edward's wife) have gotten it right. Sophie lived with Prince Edward for six years and Katherine lived with William for nine so they know. Actually maybe there's more pressure on them to get it right because they know.
- Sarah Interview 2011

Anywho, back on topic.

Second sons of the Monarch (or Monarch's to be) also seem to have Albert in their name. George VI (Albert Frederik Arthur George), Prince Andrew Albert Christian Edward and Prince Henry Albert Charles David.

Maybe the next child if it is a boy will have Albert in his name.

For a girl -

Charlotte Eleanor Victoria

For a boy -

Alexander Charles Philip

I know Alexander is one of George's middle names, but he's not known by that name, so there would be no confusion.

For a boy - Phillip definitely. I think " Philip" will be included anyway.

Thank you both! It's also very unique, in a royal sense, but a very friendly name, with some excellent connotations (Joan of Arc). (The diminutives are cute: Joni, Joanie, Jo). Princess Joan. It could fly.

Joan of Arc helped to beat the English and lose much of their possessions in France. Good name if you are French, probably not so good if English.

I view both Joan and Marjorie as rather dated and hard to imagine on a baby born in 2015, which is why I don't think they will be chosen. But, perhaps William and Catherine might surprise us, and I think that any name they choose for their second child will probably instantly be boosted up in the popularity charts. Having said that, I still can't really see them happening and I think the names of British Royal Children are pretty predictable (IIRC, lots of us predicted George for the little Prince and got it correct).

Alice is an interesting suggestion, I'd never thought of it for Baby Cambridge No. Two but I seem to remember guessing it for Prince George, had he been a girl. It is also the name of Prince Philip's mother so could be a more creative way to honour him. It's the middle name of both Princess Anne and Lady Louise Windsor, as well as being the name of one of Queen Victoria's children.

Ok, My guesses with explanations.

Girl: Charlotte Elizabeth Frances

3 names, just like George

Charlotte: A female version of Charles. Continues the Carol, Catherine first letter. It's also Pippas middle name and the name of a former Princess of Wales
Elizabeth: The Queen + the middlename of Carol and Catherine
Frances: Dianas middlename from her mothers name, Also female version of Mikes middlename Francis.

For a boy was harder for me....I think the middlenames will be Philip and Francis... But the first name is more difficult. Maybe Arthur... Yeah, let's go with Arthur.

Boy: Arthur Philip Francis

Arthur: Because I can't think of another :P
Philip: In honor of Williams grandfather Prince Philip. Also a male version of Philippa, Catherines sister
Francis: Mikes middlename and the male version of Dianas middlename Frances.

I have to say Princess Charlotte has really grown on me, though Princess Mary is very sweet. However, Princess Charlotte feels so classy and distinctive.

Whatever the name, especially if a girl, it is a name we will hear often as she grows and starts to be a fashion icon (as she must, as a girl, become, it is her destiny). Princess Charlotte seems like someone who will wow the crowds.

I really like Charlotte. It sounds classic but not outdated. Girly but not sugar-sweet. I actually really hope for a Charlotte. Although I have no doubt they will pick a good name!

A lot of names are out of fashion but the minute a royal or celebrity uses the name for their child it is the height of fashion.
IMO George was rather old fashioned at the time but it is now quite popular (at least here in Australia).
