Hey, I personally think they should honor ALL parents and grandparents in their choice of names.
I dont think they "give a damn". And they really dont care about the DM.

They will name this child entirely to their own wishes. And if they want to call it Carole (hopefully not a boy) then they will.

Lots of time is spent on these threads saying why royals cant name their child a certain name - dead people, "not royal", "unlucky", "history" duplicate. The later includes some vague royals in Europe that the majority of Brits have never heard of.

I hope they come up with something different (I've recently taken to Allegra for a girl) but they are quite an old fashioned couple so probably not.

My only wish is that it is not Diana - not because of personal feelings about her, but that it is an incredible burden for a child to carry into the future. I also feel now that Elizabeth will be a burden as well. Sorry, that's 2 wishes.

Ahhh that bright lightbulb above my head really makes typing a message so much easier.

They may decide to go with something quite simple as Mary or Alice or Jane for the sole reason it will be something easy for George to pronounce.

If it's a girl, I would love if they named her Eleanor Victoria Elizabeth, after Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth I, and Queen Elizabeth II.

Eleanor would be a fantastic choice. Not only is Eleanor of Aquitaine a badass namesake, George and Eleanor also sound lovely together. And haven't there been rumours that Diana wanted to name a daughter Eleanor? Seems like a perfect fit (provided of course that William and Catherine like it, haha).

I always thought Diana liked Alethea for a girl? Eleanor is very pretty but there are quite a lot of young Leonor, Eleanors about; the King of Belgium's daughter, Princess Madelaine of Sweden's toddler, the eldest child of Felipe and Letizia of Spain, for example, so they might not pick it for that reason.

Oh dear, it's clear you'all haven't gotten the news. I have. In the food market check-out lane this evening, it was being announced clear as 20-point type: Catherine's baby is a girl and she is naming it Diana. 'Nuf said.

There are a million apocryphal stories about what Diana would have named a girl.

At this point, let's agree that probably she would have named a girl Princess Madison CoCo Nevaeh and have done with it.

Since it appears at various times William and Kate don't know who the European Royalty are I don't think they would have any idea what they have named their children

Why should they care what other European couples have named their children though? It's their child. They should name it whatever they like and not give a hoot about what some people they're hardly going to see on a daily, weekly, monthly or even yearly basis have named their children.

2. HRH Prince Arthur Michael Charles of cambridge

3. HRH Prince Richard Philip Albert of cambridge

Towards the end with George, I had a clear feeling that it was a boy. I am all over the place with this one, but I am now leaning towards boy. I agree with the Arthur/Alfred camp, that's where I'll put my money.

Arthur/Alfred Philip - or some combination of the three.

I'm thinking boy and I did day Arthur but I really think it could be something a bit left field.
Not a fruit, tree or weather condition but not a name you immediately think of as "Royal".

I think Ringo might have better odds than Spencer - isn't the surname thing just too American?
