I've thought the same thing with both this birth and before George was born. I suspect the only person who is likely to have her own first name used as one of this new princess' name is Elizabeth and even that's likely to be a middle name rather than a first name, and also a very easy choice as it's been used on both the Windsor and Middleton sides of the family.

I like Charlotte but, again, it's perhaps too obvious - feminine form of Charles and Pippa's middle name.

Alice is an intriguing choice.

Victoria Alice Elizabeth? Victoria Elizabeth Charlotte?

I will only reaffirm my previous guess:

HRH Princess Alice Elizabeth Charlotte of Cambridge.

Baptised Alice
Used in public: Alison (a bit more modern touch)
Although Alison is derived from Alice as a nickname (which itself is derived from Adelaide), the names have developed as stand-alone names here. But anything is possible!

I'm still sticking to my guns with the name Mary. So much can be done with it and it will totally be the new princess' individual name.

Mary Alice
Mary Elizabeth (Mary Beth)
Mary Victoria

I realize so many would like the new princess to be named Diana, but the burden would be overwhelming. She would be constantly compared and unless she is drop-dead gorgeous, would face media criticism.

I think it's nice to name children after loved ones who are gone -- all three of my children are named for family members who are deceased. (This is a very common American Jewish tradition -- virtually every kid in our Hebrew school is named for someone.) But I also think that the name "Diana" could be a burden as the child grows up, so I'm hoping to see Frances as a middle name.

My main guess will remain Matilda Elizabeth Rose (as it has been since day one ).

Other possibilities: Elizabeth Rose Matilda, Isabella Charlotte Rose, Eleanor Elizabeth Matilda, Victoria Eleanor Elizabeth or Alice Elizabeth Matilda.

Alison, modern?

There's an Alison in Chaucer's 'Canterbury Tales'! It's a very old name, but deeply unfashionable in the UK now.

It is a very popular girl name in the US though.

EXACTLY!!!! Personally, I don't think William OR Harry should name a child Diana. Let it be a name for one of THEIR grandchildren. That would be far enough removed to be a nice memorial, but not so heavy a burden.

Mary Alice
Mary Elizabeth (Mary Beth)
Mary Victoria
Originally I liked the idea of a Princess Mary, too. But then on second thought I came to the conclusion that a George and a Mary might be too much of a reminder of George V and his wife.

Jacknch & Frideswide, Thanks for all the info. I never knew that Alison has such a long history all by itself. Still stick to it. We'll see...

I am afraid Diana will be far forgotten till that time and her name won't have any meaning for her grandchidren. I mean that Camilla maybe will have more right to call herself their grandmother.

Diana will always be their ancestor, and there are people who name their children after ancestors who died long ago.

But you're right, the children of William and Harry will certainly see Camilla as their grandmother. They'll have three grandmothers, with one being sadly dead.

Some ancestor and a close relative have different emotional meanings. I can respect my great-grandfather but i'd prefer to name my children in trubute to my parents or other familiar persons. Or if I just like that name very much then I can choose my ancestor's name.

I agree it could be more of a burden than a tribute to have the name Diana anywhere in her name.

To be fair, so are Jennifer and Briana, but they're not exactly suitable for a British princess.
