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

I'm still unsure about boy names, maybe Arthur or David. For a girl, I still like Charlotte.

I bet they'll be kicking themselves if it's a boy born on Thursday, and they've already used up George ...

I love Mary Elizabeth, it's actually on my list for my own future children. It's such a classical and strong combination. I remember suggesting Mary Elizabeth Catherine Victoria in the earlier pages of this thread.

I do believe it's also the Crown Princess of Denmark's full name.

I'm British and was unaware of the slang term "Prince Albert" until I (admittedly... ) looked it up on a quick Google definition. It is indeed an unfortunate connotation, but I can't imagine that it's that widely used over here, and I'm sure that if Baby Cambridge No. Two is a boy and does end up being an Albert, people will soon leave the connotations aside since William and Catherine are so famous across the globe.

Wasn't Mary Rose the full name of Henry VIII's sister, the Duchess of Suffolk?

What comes to mind for me is making prank calls as a kid and asking people if they had Prince Albert in a can (tobacco chew in a can) and then telling 'em to let him out.

The Mary Rose was a ship during the time of Henry VIII. Can't tell you though who it was named after though.

Possible Names for the 2nd Child of the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge

Mary Rose was also the name of Henry VIII's flagship which sunk in the Solent killing most of its crew.

The ship's name comes from reportedly Mary the King's sister and Rose for the Tudor Rose being the symbol of the Tudors. Mary's middle name wasn't Rose.

I don't know why but I can't shake the feeling that the name will be very unexpected this time.

If baby girl born on April 23rd, why not honor her with the name Shirley somewhere in name.

I've never liked that name, and I'm not sure why they'd want to honor an American with their child's name.

Shirley Temple was an amazing woman, but Airplane pretty much ruined that name forever.

I really doubt they'd ever do that as a) Shirley Temple was an American and b) I don't think the royals would name their child because of someone in the entertainment field although later in life she was involved with being an ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia and was Chief of Protocol for the United States. To be honest, I would bet my last chicken wing that William and Kate aren't even overly familiar with her.

LINK: Royal baby: 'Princess Alice’ could cost bookmakers £500,000 as betting mounts ahead of birth - Telegraph

"The Duchess of Cambridge will give birth to a blonde daughter called Alice on Monday, according to the instincts of the British betting public."

Well, that deadline has past.

LINK: Royalty Betting Odds | Bet Online at Ladbrokes.com

Ladbrokes still has Alice as the lead name for a girl, followed in a dead-heat with Elizabeth and Charlotte.

For a boy it's Arthur and James, but clearly the bias is for a girl.

My friend, who only follows royals at a distance, mentioned to me that she heard that everybody thinks it will be a girl called Alice, to which she added, "which means it won't be."

I like that reasoning, only because I'm not at all big on the name Alice, lol.
