You beat me to it.

Remembered that little fact but by the time I got back to edit my post, you've stated it for me.

What I think is a stroke of genius is how they tactfully included both paternal grandparents in the name. No wonder Charles was beaming leaving after visiting his new granddaughter.

Charlotte Elizabeth Diana is a beautiful name. I wonder if they'll ever call her Lottie. Hmm.

Charlotte Elizabeth Diana is an odd combination, and it doesn't sound as regal as, for example, Alice Victoria Mary . They have the right to pick whatever name they like for their daughter though.

Both William and Catherine's families were honored in her name. It's a beautiful thing.

Richard Palmer @RoyalReporter · 4m 4 minutes ago
The popularity of the name is expected to fall now because parents won't want others to think they were influenced by the Cambridges.

Charlotte was the 17th most popular name in the UK last year, up seven places from 2013, according to BabyCentre.

I've always loved the name Charlotte, so I'm happy William and Catherine chose it. It's such a beautiful, elegant name.

I love her names. It's beautiful nod to William's late mother and just wonderful news.

Video:
Royal gun salutes were fired today to mark the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's baby princess. The deafening volleys rang out across the capital this afternoon in celebration of William and Kate's second child who was born on Saturday at 8.34am, weighing 8lbs 3oz. The Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) fired a 62-gun salute at the Tower of London - an extra 21 for the City of London. The weapons were fired from Gun Wharf, overlooking HMS Belfast-

Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana! How wonderful - I love Charlotte Elizabeth in particular, such a beautiful combination and it's not surprising to see Diana. I knew Charlotte was a royal name, but I'd forgotten it was Pippa's middle name, therefore it's a rather meaningful name for the Cambridges.

Even though it's lovely, it was a very predictable combination - and now this has got me wondering - did anyone guess the exact combo? I guessed Elizabeth Diana together, but for Victoria instead of Charlotte.

After having looked at the photos of Princess Charlotte, she does look a little like her name to me, but I initially thought she looked like an Alice. My cousin is called Charlotte and as soon as I heard the Princess's name, I texted her it and she said that it was a good choice.

I wonder when the press will start calling her Princess Lottie.

I was going to say how elegant it sounds. I like other names better, but i don't dislike Charlotte at all! And the combination makes it more elegant. Imagining Kate talking seriously to their little one: Charlotte Elisabeth, behave yourself!!

Sorry, I expected this name, but I don't like it, it seems to my ear too old-fashioned,not pretty sounding, and even masculine and rude.

But it's good tribute even to prince Charles and it seems a good royal name.

My first thought was:
" What an ugly name for such a little beautiful creature!"

I have a friend having the same name, and she is all right with her name.

Well, the tastes differ, and the most important is the princess, who will be for sure gracious like her mom and nice like both parents.

just my two cents.

Lovely combination of names! Congrats
I have a question. Is the name of Charlotte a tribute to Pcs Charles, or was it a previous Pcs Charlotte in the british royal family?

I guessed the two middle names right but I thought the first name would be Alice rather than Charlotte. One of the other royals is just going to have to revive Alice! I do like the name Charlotte too. It's already a popular name in the United States but I would be willing to bet it will soon hit the top 10 for American girls born this year now that there's a Princess Charlotte. The name will get more publicity because Hillary Clinton's granddaughter is also a Charlotte.

I agree with you, but the majority seems to have liked it.

Charlotte is the feminine form of Charles, so it could be seen as a nod to him, and it's also Catherine's sister's middle name, so it covers both the Windsors and the Middletons.
