Gracie, Is it not nice that Hellomagazine and The Telegraph are in existence to give us all the details?
If every monarchy was the same, then each sovereign be the parent of eight to ten children.
Each child has their Christian name, which is their first name. Then after their first name would be six or seven middle names.
Consider this: Prince George has THREE names.
Catherine's new baby Could Have FOUR Names!!

Several posts that did not focus on the topic of this thread - possible names for Cambridge baby #2 - have been removed as they were dragging this thread WAY off-topic. Further off-topic posts, including psychobabble, will be removed.

That reminded me that my Aunt said to pick a good name for your baby put doctor in front of it.
If you would go to that doctor it's a good name.
Mm Dr northwest ! Dr apple ?

Good idea, what a very clever aunt you have.

How about Bombay for a little boy?

Shouldn't that be Mumbai? Of course, Paris, as with 'Hilton,' would be a good one and a compliment to the French. If going for home-grown names they could try Chelsea or Hastings.

No, I am thinking of the old "Bewitched"...

Whoops! Thanks, got it, GracieGiraffe.

Incidentally, I hope the name chosen isn't something completely out of left field like Vincent, which I don't really like at all, JMO, and heaven knows where it came from. Was it a family name on CP Mary's side?

The Middleton parents were very conservative when naming their children IMO, and Catherine's name fitted in well.

Vincent is quite a popular name with all classes in Sweden, so it's possible it is in Denmark as well. To me it sounds like a perfectly normal name.

I have read that it may have been a tribute to the French side of the family. It's just never appeared in the Danish royal family and it is an unusual name for a royal baby. As an Australian I remember a few jokes about the name Vincent here at the time, that's all. It was just my opinion I was voicing.

I didn't say anything about your opinion. Just gave another perspective from someone living "almost in Denmark" about that it seems like a super neutral name here. Modern yes, but really normal and neutral.

Vincent is not modern here - among the Irish and Italians in the Northeast it was quite popular - I knew a number of Vincents and Vinnies and I really like the name.

I think it's safe to assume that Vincent was a tribute to Frederik's paternal lineage. Saint Vincent of Saragossa is the patron of winemakers (and we all know that Grandpapa Henri is a keen winemaker).

I would personally guess that the BRF is too conservative to go with a name for a spare as relatively out there as, say, Estelle or Vincent but I'm probably wrong. I was very surprised with their choice of middle names for George so I don't think them using an unexpected first name would be a massive surprise.

Vincent is what would be considered an upper class name here (or, let me rephrase it, in Danish standards, the delightful Katie Hopkins would indeed let her children play with a Vincent ).
