Not going to happen...not with the children of the future king. They will have traditional names.

Almost certainly out of tradition yes they will but real talk as long as Liz gives it the go they can name it what they will... It is not like they will be hanged quarterd or sent to exhile in disgrace. If they suprise us with a not traditional but still elegant name it won't be the end of monarchy.

If the child will be a son I suggest using Henry and James, the names of his father's brother and mother's brother, the uncles, respectively. Ironically both names are the names of former monarchs also.
Henry and James are unlikely candidates unless they are middle names as they are being used by current family members and James, Viscount Severn is close in age to the new baby. James was a popular name in the Royal family but that was over 400 years ago - it hasn't been used since Stuart times. Viscount Severn was one of the first to be given it as a Christian name for many years.

I am sticking with Arthur as my choice and perhaps Henry or James as a middle name if they want to use family names, though Alexander and Louis for George were not family names.

Louis is a family name. Louis Mountbatten and William's last middle name.

I meant family names as in Regal names (George, Edward, Henry, Charles etc.) I should have been more specific, sorry.

Louis is also one of Edward's middle names though it's not for Louis Mountbatten, it's for Prince Louis of Hesse and by Rhine who is one of his godparents as Edward's full name is from his godparents.

Wanted to add to this discussion the fact that the baby will be born around the days of the patron saints of England, Wales and Ireland. It's predicted he will be born in April and St George's day is April 23rd, while St Patrick's day and St David's day is only the month before, so maybe we should be expecting those names (even if we've had George already - the Earl of Wessex and the Duke of York both have the name Edward, so it's not impossible to have two Georges).

George/Georgina
Patrick/Patricia
David/Davina (?)

FF462, If the Cambridges have a son and decide to use the name George as the child's middle name, exactly where would the George be placed?
For example: Edmund George Francis or
Edmund Francis George
The new child's name will be analyzed to no end.

The second would be in alphabetical order. ;-)

I'm admitting ignorance as an American. I don't know, so I am asking. How strongly does the current COE support Saints days? I know long in the past, saint days were largely eliminated. Have they come back into popularity? I do realize there are regional associations with certain saints. Thanks for any cultural explanation.

St George's Day has been celebrated a bit more in England in the last decade or so than it was before.

In the Anglican Church it is regarded as a major festival in the church calendar. 'Jerusalem' is sung in all cathedrals, churches and chapels on St George's Day or the nearest Sunday to it. Apart from that, I don't think there's much, although individual parishes named after St George might have celebrations of some kind.

I'm still thinking a princess will have Victoria & Elizabeth in her names. Mayhap Caroline & Frances to honour the grandmothers. I really think that they will avoid Diana.

Charlotte is a royal circle name also.
Queen Charlotte -George III's consort, Princess Charlotte of Wales who was daughter of George IV who died in childbirth and started the race to produce an heir among her uncles that ended up with the birth of Victoria.

Well they're quite relevant in that the saints days are the public holidays of the individual countries of which they are patron saints. England is the only British country which doesn't have its own individual public holiday but St George's day is still informally celebrated as England's national day.

And the reason I thought it was relevant for naming is because there is a tradition in the BRF of being named after British patron saints. For example, Princess Patricia of Connaught was given that name because she was born on St Patrick's day. While the Duke of Windsor had all the names of the four patron saints...

Just checking my facts - looks like Wales doesn't have its own individual public holiday either. But in any case, St David's day is still celebrated as a national day.
