Dunno, no one objects to the idea of Princess Elizabeth, which has FAR bigger shoes to fill, name and recent past wise.

Interesting point. I think that the problem is that "Diana" is divisive. Just read the posts on here. Elizabeth is a family name with a tradition; it has a positive history. It isn't that a new "Princess Elizabeth" is expected to be Queen.

But somehow I think not.

I think that Harry should be able to call his daughter, if he has one, "Diana." William got the ring--which is now Catherine's.

I do think that they will go for something vaguely trendy, a name that is in use among their friends and set when they choose a name if it's a girl; something like Charlotte or Alice. Don't think it is a girl, though.

I believe they will shut up shop after two. Neither are getting any younger, they've said they don't want to be old parents, and Kate has suffered badly from morning sickness.

Wasn't there a rumour before Prince George was born that William and Kate had chosen a particular girls' name, so much that the odds on it were quite low? I was thinking of something like Charlotte or Victoria.

Old-fashioned names have become popular again, so if not Charlotte or Victoria, what about Alice or Isabella or even Frances (Diana's middle name?)

It's only 'divisive' when you are dealing with people who are huge anti's when it comes to the late princess. Most people wouldnt think it odd that a man who lost his mother young might name a daughter after her. Now, on the other hand, the people who scream OH NO not that Ring the world will come to an end, OH NO she wore blue at the engagement photos, OH NO she wore a blue and white dress leaving the hospital tend to get a bit frothed up that William might name his daughter after his late mother. JMHO of course

I agree the most natural thing is to use a grandmothers name. Especially if the grandmother died young. No one would say horrible things about Kate if they named a daughter after Carole
I believe the anti Diana lot get lost in their hatred to see the love of sons for their mother.

I disagree. I think that they would get a lot of backlash for naming a daughter after Catherine's mother – a lot more than they would for naming a daughter after Diana. Mainly because most people still adore Diana and her critics are a minority. I reckon, however, that people would immediately jump on their backs for choosing to name a daughter after Kate's family rather than the royal family.

But Kate wouldn't be said to have "mummy issues" like a poster said William had.

Using tradition I say Princess Mary Anne Louise. This child will be the Next Princess Royal after Princess Anne. All three of these names are the last Princess Royal names.

Prince Edmund has really grown on me.
If it's a boy then I'll vote for Prince Edmund Arthur Philip or some variation on that.
For a girl I still think it will be some combo of Charlotte Elizabeth Alice though they might use Victoria instead of Alice.
I think Diana is completely out because it wouldn't matter if it was that little girl's first name or 51st, the press would still call her Princess Diana and I don't think William is going to do anything to draw more press attention to his family. Harry might use it if he has a daughter because she would be a little more out of the limelight.

The September 9, 2014 Hellomagazine.com declared:
The Duchess of Cambridge has reportedly told friends that she is planning for a big family.
She wants "at least" three children, according to The Telegraph.

Well, we might be seeing Diana and Elizabeth down the line after all.

If true, I think this is very sweet. I wish her well - it would be nice if she had four. I find the Danish royal family's gaggle of four children to be endearing.

If they have 4 children, I'd call it having a passel in their castle.

If she has four boys they will be named George, Paul, John and Ringo, obviously

And there could be variations like Paula and Pauline for a girl, and Ringa or Ringy...
