If they named a boy Richard, it might be denoted as a tip of the hat to the year Richard III was reinterned in Leicester.

I think Richard could be a strong contender for a name but my top two picks are John and Albert.

Maybe just me but I doubt they would use Alexander when it is one of George's names.

I'm still firm on Victoria Elizabeth with maybe Alice as the third name.

I still really really want another little boy. Two little boys are so cute. Maybe called Alfred

I like the name "David Arthur" for another boy. If a girl, Anna Elizabeth.

I doubt they'd use the name David - that was what Edward VIII was called by family and friends.

I doubt they'd use James since Edward and Sophie's son is James. That might cause too much confusion but who knows...

That didn't stop Princess Margaret - Edward VIII's niece - from naming her only son David.

I hope the baby is a boy. Preferably named Arthur.

One of Harry's names is David.

Isn't David also the patron saint of Wales? I can really see them naming a boy David.

Alexis is technically a boys' name in English and hasn't been used on women as long as it has on men so I don't think there is any chance they would use it on a daughter. I know it's popular now for girls but I just can't see it in the royal family.

David is the patron saint of Wales and the name of two Scottish kings (as well as a number of Princes of Wales).

I've just been doing a little survey of my own on this thread and so far, as you might expect, Elizabeth, Victoria and Charlotte as first names are blitzing ahead of all contenders. Strangely things were quet on the Alice front early on, but it is now making a strong run. I think posters here have agreed that Diana is an unlikely contender as a first name.

Among the boys' names Philip started off extremely strongly and Charles was the suggestion of a few. Philip seems to have fallen out of contention in the last little while and Arthur, Albert are becoming favourites.

Picture it. London 2015. Announcement made that the 2nd boy child of William and Kate is name Arthur. The country goes wild. The Daily Mail calls it Arthuritis.

But seriously folks.... won't be long now.

I really don't see them picking a name like alice if its a girl...i can see names more like victoria, mary, alexandra, or even charlotte....i feel like those are strong first names...alice is kinda blah...

and I def. don't think they are going to have more than 3 names for the next kid....

I am going to laugh if cara delevigne is right on the name again...she got it right with george...I remember when she was asked for an entertainment show what the name should be...she said Charlotte for a girl and I think Alfie for a boy.

Blah you may think it but Alice was the name of Prince Phillips mother and is one of the names of the Princess Royal so it has family history.

I'm still convinced on Victoria Elizabeth Alice

on the off chance that it is a little prince I would lean towards

Richard Arthur Phillip

I love the name Alice, but I think it would be better for a middle name because the first name ought to be more "robust" sounding! So my current thinking is Charlotte Elizabeth Alice for a girl.

Richard would be a great name for a boy - maybe Richard Charles David?

I guess another factor on what name they will choose is how it will sound with the full title. We have Prince George of Cambridge, so how does Princess Charlotte of Cambridge sound or Prince Richard of Cambridge?
