Baby born any day now and if a girl will be named Elizabeth in some form.

Victoria Alexandra Elizabeth (Mary) if four names.
Elizabeth Alexandra Victoria

If it is a boy I can see Edmund in there as it is a Roche name. If the Queen can convince Philip to allow Philip somewhere in the name there may be a Philip in the baby's name if a boy.

As far as a first name for a boy I do not see Philip nor Edmund but they may go with it.

Edmund Francis James
Frederick Edmund Charles

Or if they reuse Alexander
Alexander Frederick James
Alexander Philip Charles
Phillip Alexander Francis

The bookies are never silly! It's the punters who are betting on Alice, not the bookies. The more money that the public put on Alice, the more the bookies will shorten the odds - so that they don't have to pay out so much if it turns out to be the chosen name.

Two others that are on that "no go" list IMO would be John and Stephen. As I mentioned above, there was "Bad King John" as well as the sons of Edward VII and George V who died young. As for Stephen, the reign of England's only King with that name is known as "The Time when Christ and All His Saints Slept" with the country in total anarchy and civil war. Unless William and Catherine are bound and determined to go against Royal tradition, no John or Stephen.

I really have no idea on boys' names, except I think they might try to go with Philip in there somewhere - and maybe the DoE would go along this time as the child is unlikely to be King. Albert wouldn't surprise me either, as it was the name by which The Queen's father was known until he became King with Bertie as his family name his entire life.

For a girl: I would in fact be gobsmacked if a little Princess of Cambridge was named anything but Elizabeth. If you've noticed, not one member of even the extended family was given it as a first name which makes me think it was somehow "reserved" for the main line, much as Victoria supposedly was by The Prince of Wales for a daughter that was never born.

Just my opinion, of course.

Did the DoE really tell them not to use Philip as a name for George, or is that just a story the media/public put forth? To me it seems unlikely that the DoE objected to one of George's names being Philip given as 1. one of his sons and two of his grandsons have it as a middle name and 2. none of George's names are the first names of any close relation or HRH. It seems to me instead that the Cambridges chose not to directly name George for any one person, instead choosing names that can be seen as honouring all sides of William's family.

I disagree about John and Stephen. There is no reason why these names couldn't be used again by the BRF.
Regina of course means "queen" and would be inappropriate, especially for a second child.

Albert would be an unwise choice, in view of the present-day connotations of the phrase "Prince Albert".

I highly doubt that William and Catherine would care the slightest about the amount of girls from various other royal families bearing some variation of the name should Eleanor/Eleonore/Leonor/Leonore be a name they want to give their child. And why on earth should they?

I really don't envy them chosing the name for a girl. It's such a balancing act. Having said that if they must use those Arthur/Alfred/Alberts I hope it's as a middle name...just my opinion....

I must be getting a bit excited.

Was Kidding about Regina. For the reasons above, I think Mary is also out as a first name.

I don't understand, what reasons? I would not rule out Mary at all. It's an established Royal name that isn't currently in use, much like George.

I've said before, I could imagine a "Princess Mary Elizabeth".

I'd really love that. That name would also skyrocket to the top of the baby name lists, and with good reason, a lovely, timeless classic.

I also love Alice Rose or Mary Alice.

We are going to be gobsmacked if they pull an Estelle or Vincent on us and choose,I don't know, Emma or Simon or something.

I had already put two cents on Alexandra Charlotte, but I wouldn't mind Alexandra Rose for a little girl.

As the couple was very traditional in George as choice of a name, I would be surprised if this baby would received an usual name.
