A Second Child is pretty likely to be the same Gender of the First Child. Since William and Catherine First Child was a Boy their Second Child is more likely to be a another Boy then a Girl.

Not to mention the fact that the baby's maternal uncle is called James. I agree, James is out of the picture as a first name although it would have been lovely with George.

I think the baby will be a girl and Diana will not be included in the names. I've had a feeling for awhile that the name Diana is being left for Harry's daughter. Personally, I think it would be an awful burden for any child who is 2nd in line to the throne to be saddled with the name Princess Diana. But if Harry's daughter is called Diana, the burden is lifted and it just becomes a nice family name.

My guess for the name: Alexandra Carole Louise. If I'm wrong and the Duchess has a boy then the name will be: Michael William Charles.

Wow. I'm happy for William and Catherine.

I hope, the will get a daughter: Diana Carole Elizabeth Philippa (or so ) - The names Diana and Carole are coming from the grandmothers. Elizabeth from the queen, Philippa from Catherines sister.

A Boy could be named Charles Michael Philipp James - after Charles (grandfather paternal side), Michael (grandfather maternal side), Philipp (great-grand-father paternal side), James (uncle maternal side).

Boy: Arthur Phillip David
Phillip James Charles
Oliver Michael Phillip

Girl: Charlotte Elizabeth Mary
Isabella Victoria Frances
Amelia Elizabeth Caroline

Not yet. I know a Family with 5 children: the first-Born is a Boy, the second-born a Girl, then are 2 Boys and at least 1 Girl. The youngst Boy and the youngest Girl are twins.

-

What names will Catherine give to her children, if she became twins or triplets ?

I didn't say it was scientific fact just hat it more likely. You can look back at the history of the royal family over the last 300 years for example.

I would love a Prince Arthur or a Princess Charlotte. Still need to think about middle names.

If it is a girl I really hope they don't use Diana.

I'd like a Prince Phillip or a Princess Charlotte with either Diana or Frances as a middle name

Some friends of mine had first a Girl, then a Boy.

What did you say now ?

For example Queen Victoria (1818-1901). With her husband Albert, she had 9 children: Victoria (1840-1901, died after her mother), Albert Edward (1841-1910), known as Edward VII. etc.

Diana should be used as a middle name, after the paternal grandmother.

The royals are very traditional, about names.

For a boy, I've always loved Arthur, Alexander, Jonathan and Nicholas.

For a girl, I'd love it if they named her Charlotte or Caroline but since those names are so strongly attached to the Grimaldi's, I don't see that happen. I also like Marion, Adele, Alicia, Alexis, Daphne, Helena, Emilia, Emily, Florence, Genevieve, Irene, Isolde and a bunch of other names. Please no Victoria, Alexandra or Elizabeth. It's predictable and we all know Diana is off limits.

And they should stay clear from all the variations of Amelie and Eleonor. Overdone.

If it is a boy, then I believe they'll follow the tradition of including Albert as one of the names.

I would go for Arthur or Phillip when it is a boy.
For I girl, I would really love Victoria or Mary.

I don't think they will use Diana as a second or third name for a girl, but Frances is a good option too.

I really can't choose if it's going to be a boy or a girl. I'll wait till we see her pregnant with belly and stuff.
I really think they will have a third baby, so hopefully they will have at least one boy and one girl.

Oh and I like Adelaide a lot which is traditional but not overdone

Princess Adelaide Elizabeth Diana would be quite nice.

I'm hoping that this second baby is a girl! I'm assuming they'll go with three names, like they did with George, and the first name will probably be traditional or a family name while the others may be names that both parents like.

Girl: Caroline as a first name. It's a royal name and it honors Carole Middleton. I would be surprised if they used Diana at all. It has a lot of weight to it. Perhaps Caroline Amelia, or Caroline Elizabeth. Not sure about a third name!

Boy: Phillip, Arthur, Richard, or David. They may be more creative since he's not the heir to the throne, so we could also see a traditional but "trendy" name.

Whenever I think of royal baby names I always think of regnal numbers. Even though George will hopefully become the monarch it is always a possibility that a sibling could become the monarch and it also feels appropriate to name a royal baby after a previous monarch.

It seems like Kate and Wills want to go with the safe option, with George being a safe name as it doesn't clash with the English or Scottish regnal numbers, as there have only been Georges after England and Scotland united. The only other two 'safe' boys names are Charles (as there have only been Charleses after the union as well) and John (there's been one King John in both Scotland and England, pre-union). If not, then maybe it would appropriate to give a boy a Scottish name to honour the Scots given the current situation in Scotland.

So… my idea for a boy is:

John Henry Francis

I think John is good because Jack is a diminutive of John so he could be known as Prince Jack (like how Prince Harry is actually called Prince Henry). Henry is to honour his brother and Francis is Kate's father, which is also appropriate as Diana's middle name was Frances. I think if he is called Henry, then Harry will be a godfather as it's traditional to name the child after its godparents.

And for a girl the 'safe' options are Victoria, Anne and Mary. Likewise, if one wanted to honour the Scots, the only other Scottish Queen (in her own right) was Margaret.

My idea for a girl is:

Victoria Elizabeth Diana

Victoria was such a well remembered and popular monarch it seems like a good choice. It also seems almost disrespectful not to a name a girl Elizabeth when the Queen is still alive. Elizabeth is also the middle name of both Kate and her mother. The reason for Diana is obvious and it seems like fitting tribute.

…I think I spend too much time thinking about this...

I'm hoping for a little Princess Victoria Elizabeth Diana Caroline of Cambridge, which was my prediction for George but we got a little Prince instead. For girls I also like:

Mary Elizabeth Catherine Victoria
Helena Louise Catherine Alberta (could be a nice twist on Albert)
Sophia Charlotte Rose Amelia

Arthur Richard Philip Leopold
Frederick Albert Charles Michael
Edmund Patrick James Francis (I think Edmund would be an interesting twist on Edward, and a first for the RF?)

Whilst I adore the idea of a Queen Isolde, I doubt that it will be chosen. From your suggestions, I think Helena, Charlotte and Caroline are the most likely. I think if they chose Adele or Emilia, they would most likely be spelt Adela or Amelia. I would love it if Adela could be revived, it's an elegant name and has connections with the BRF already (albeit long ago) as there was an Adela of Normandy, who was also known as Adela of England, in medieval times. Jonathan is a nice name too, but I doubt it will be considered or chosen as it has the "John" sound, which is an unlucky name for the royals due to Prince John, as well as Prince Alexander John, who both died young.

I will believe till the baby is born that it will be a girl, maybe it's just a wishfull thinking
My mom had a boy first and I came in second and I'm a girl (as it did happen with my parents, my dad first then my aunt. My mom first then my uncle was born, and the same with my cousins). I guess my family tree is almost 100% of non repeat gender.

Queen Elizabeth II also had a boy first, then a girl, the same with the Princess Royal.
