It's not a good name for a Scottish monarch because of John Balliol, who was put on the throne by the English King and had a less than successful reign.

At the same time, for the English there was King John of England who is remembered for the Magna Carta and being the villain in Robin Hood.

Prince Johns tend not to fair too well either. There's been a number of Prince John's who didn't survive into adulthood - including the last two - and it was a Prince John who fathered the Lancaster dynasty leading to the War of the Roses.

I think Alice Diana Victoria or Alice Diana Phillipa or Alice Diana mary

or how about off the track and go Catherine caroline Elizabeth

Fergie was a big fan of Queen Victoria she named her children after names of Victorias children

i think it will be 3 names... **** Elizabeth Frances

but i have changed my mind on the first name repeatedly... but i think I'm back to

Mary Elizabeth Frances
or
Alexandra Elizabeth Frances
Alice Elizabeth Frances
Charlotte Elizabeth Frances

I expect the name announcement tomorrow after HM has visited her new great grand-daughter. Tonight the Cambridges deserve as peaceful a night as the new princess will allow. Quite an amazing day in their little family.

The nickname for king Henry VIII was king Hal, and king Henry V was known as prince Hal (at least in Shakespeare's plays Henry IV). Harry was actually the spoken Middle English form of Henry, and if believing Wikipedia most English kings named Henry were known as Harry in their time.

I've seen suggestions saying that since the little Princess is a May baby, Mary with May as a nickname could be a possibility. I think that's a really lovely idea, and I do believe May was Queen Mary's nickname, so it honours a relative, too.

However, I'm still rooting for a Princess Victoria Elizabeth Diana Caroline of Cambridge - Elizabeth after HM, Diana after the late Princess of Wales (IMO it would seem strange not to honour her) and Caroline after Carole Middleton. But I think Mary is very likely too, and I have Mary Elizabeth Catherine Victoria as my close contender for a girl after Victoria.

I am still going for Alice, although as for middle names I am not 100% sure. The female British royal names I can think of are Eleanor, Charlotte, Sophie/Sophia and Matilda that I would like to see in the name line up. I hope Diana is not included just for the child's sake.

I still think Alice too, although I also like Adelaide.

I hope either Diana or Frances will be included, personally, but won't really mind either way.

I do believe they announced George's name the day after his birth.

You're off by a day. George was born on the 22nd, presented and taken home the 23rd, and had his name announced the 24th.

I think they denied naming George "after" anyone, they just liked the names (didn't they?)
that's why i think they will do they same this time and not include Diana or Elizabeth

i'm sticking with Matilda

Was George a popular choice for a name when she was pregnant for the first time? (I couldn't follow much back those days so I can't tell).
Because there's a lot of Alice - Victoria - Elizabeth - Charlotte talk, so I think they might try no to choose them for the first name.

I can see they choosing Mary or Caroline, not too much talk about them (not as much as Alice, for example) or something like Isabella (which is the same as Elizabeth) to change a bit.

They can go for Mathilda/Mathilde, Eleanor, Stephanie, Emma, Emilly traditional ones and not so obvious.

Someone said Lavinia and Cecilia, adorable names, I would love to have a Princess Cecilia of Cambridge or Princess Lavinia of Cambridge.

Again, hoping for Caroline or Mary, my second favorite.

I think that the Queen will attend church services in the morning, pop in early afternoon, and then we will hear the name.

We did hear George's name right after she left from her visit with him. I am guessing the DoE will be along this time - was he not recovering from surgery at Sandringham when George was born?

George was the most obvious choice for a boy's name - it was one of the few names of a previous English/British monarch that wasn't in use by an HRH/close family member, and the only such name that had been used by more than one King.

His additional names, though, were somewhat less likely, although they were mentioned a fair bit prior to his birth. What was shocking about George's names weren't the names themselves so much as the ones not used - Arthur and Philip being two names people really expected to see.

Girls names are harder - she's not the heir herself, so there could be more flexibility, but if they want to go with the name of a monarch there are very few options again. I think the popular choices are popular choices largely because they're a bit atypical. That happened a bit with George too - there was a lot of pushing for James or Arthur to be the first name with George.

They have to stay within certain boundaries with number 2, but they have a lot more leeway. I would not be surprised if we see a traditional, but unused name.
