I was in a contest to guess the right name and win a trip to England, and before the birth I'd picked Alexandra. However, after the photos of the baby came out, I kept thinking of her as 'Charlotte' - I don't know why, but she looked like a Charlotte to me, too. Maybe it was a combination of that, and hearing how popular Charlotte was at the bookies.

I really like the name - it sounds elegant.

Masculine and rude?

I love Charlotte, and it's even more apt as this little girl was born on the anniversary of the wedding of the Princess Charlotte who was Victoria's cousin. She would have been Queen if she'd lived.

George and Charlotte are a very Hanovarian combination, I think, but lovely to see an old name long unused come back into the royal family. Elizabeth and Diana were inevitable, I believe.

I like the name my niece is named Charlotte. I like old fashioned she is a British princess so I think it works and honors family members.

I thought they might save Diana for Harry but there is nothing to say he can't use it too. I think it's good that she has a first name like Charlotte there won't be the comparisons if it had been one of the others .Elizabeth and Diana work better as second and third name.

Long unused by the RF perhaps, but a very common name these days in the Commonwealth countries.

YAY!!! now I can quit surfing the web and go to work too, GracieGiraffe!!
I LOVE the name, I Love Charlotte, so glad they chose this name, it was my favorite out of all the ones in the running and I am glad they honored Diana but not in a way that she will be constantly compared to her, great nod to Williams grandmother, whom he adores.
Princess Charlotte is as beautiful as her name!!!!

One can make the reasonable assumption that when William is king, he would grant his daughter the honor of being called the Princess Royal, so just think — one day we'll see HRH The Princess Charlotte, The Princess Royal.

It just sounds right.

And there has been a princess Charlotte before, who would have been a reigning Queen, if she had not died in childbirth.

Love her names. How did anyone, i.e. bookies, know Charlotte was even being considered?

I am not the biggest fan of the name Charlotte (to say the least) but a british princess Charlotte does sound regal.
