I really don't think that the Queen would say no to what ever names that William and Kate would want to name their child. She isn't a super control freak person.

The Queen said no when Fergie wanted to name her eldest daughter Annabelle.
The Queen suggested Beatrice, and Beatrice is what she is.

I highly doubt Tiffany (or any other name along those sounds of lines) would be chosen. Princess Tiffany of Cambridge just doesn't sound quite right to my ears. I like the name Antonio but if William and Catherine were ever going to use it, I think they'd go with Anthony instead as it's more familiar in Britain.

According to this article in the Daily Mail Alice, Victoria and Elizabeth (as well as Frances) are the most popular choices for a little Princess; whilst Albert, Frederick and Adolphus (I don't believe that - whilst it has been used in the BRF before and I [upon forgetting about the negative famous associations] suggested it for Prince George, because of the related Adolf belonging to we-all-know-who, I doubt it will be chosen) are popular choices for a little Prince.

I would share my name with Baby Cambridge No. Two if it were a girl and William and Catherine decided to go with the popular choice of Alice.

I'll make my final guesses, as it can be at any moment now.

For a girl: Princess Alice Elizabeth Charlotte of Cambridge.

For a boy: Prince Arthur Philip Albert of Cambridge.

It's a beautiful name, wyevale. Why associate it with the Kardashian's?

I and millions of others associate it with a rather tacky, vulgar jewellers... [and in this country] with a character in the long running 'soap' Eastenders. Neither associations would recommend the name to the Windsors ! Its the vulgarity that makes me think of the Kardashians..

It may or may not be considered a beautiful name, but it isn't one likely to be used for the 'spare' in the family of the heir to the throne of the United Kingdom.

I didn't know a name could make someone feel like that. I think it's best to stop associating nice names to such things.

It's not fashionable nowadays to name children after their parents, and people avoid giving names that are already in use for young cousins and relatives. It wasn't always that way: people used to repeat names to a great extent, which is seen today as somewhat dull and unimaginative.

I think the trend is also moving away from naming a son after his father. I don't hear of too many "Juniors" these days and it always kind of irritated me to hear the "Big Fred" and "Little Fred" thing.

Eleanor was the name of Eleanor of Aquitaine – arguably one of the most notable Queen Consorts in English history. Christian, albeit not a name commonly associated with the BRF, is, as Skippyboo said, one of Andrew's names and was the name of Alexandra of Denmark's beloved father, King Christian IX (which, I believe, is how it was introduced to the BRF).

Unless William and Catherine are planning on naming the baby Prince/ss Moonblood Seastar Bloodraven Brian of Cambridge (or something like that ), I really don't see why ever the Queen would interfere with what they're naming their child.

I do think the names used by the descendants of Elizabeth II and the DoE or their spouses are unlikely to be used as the first name (eliminating Charles/Anne/Edward/Sophie/William/Catherine/Henry/George). I also kind of think that the names of the members of the immediate Middleton family are unlikely as a first name as well (Michael/Philippa/James).

I was here early on, but will repost my pick for a baby Princess as for some reason I think it's a girl...

Elizabeth Katherine Rose

Yes, I know that it would be spelled w/a "C" instead of a "K". That's just my personal preference showing. :)

Spelt with a K though would be a way to honour the Duchess of Kent - the quiet lady who is almost forgotten but who was always a gentle supporter of Diana.

That has always seemed to me to be an American thing Along with the numbers because the same names have been used down several generations.

I'm hoping it's not one of the really old royal names like Albert, Arthur, Alfred that aren't so popular nowadays.

Googling royal names I like Stephen, Edmund, Adrian, David, Nicholas (perhaps too Russian) for boys. I did like Richard but the reburial etc. has been a bit much.
Girls: Amelia, Helena, Alice, Emma, Sophia. Just adding to the mix Mariella and Cecilia.

I wonder why Helen/Helena hasn't been used very much in the BRF, except for Lady Helen Windsor, of course? I think Helen of Cambridge sounds very nice.

I've never read of Adolphus being suggested by anyone, really. Perhaps a joke? It was the name of one of King George III's sons, but I don't think it's been used since. Wonder why!!

James seems to be making a late run in polls, but I still don't think they'll use it because of the Wessex connection. I still think a vaguely trendy name which is palatable to William and Kate like Frederick (Freddie) or Arthur is more likely as a first name, David, perhaps.

Nobody every suggests Frederick do they? Traditional but modern enough, some Royal pedigree. A nice solid name altogether.
