My parents named my Second Elder Brother Jacob with Tanner being his middle name. When my Uncle (My dad Brother) and Aunt had my Cousin six months after me they named him Tanner. So Harry could use Diana as a first nane.

Two of my Cousins are named after our Grandfathdt

Aah, I had wished for a princess and my only choice for a name was Charlotte. I am a happy camper. The little Princess has lovely names. :)

Of course - there's no stopping Harry from putting "Diana" in all of his daughter's names - first name, second, twenty-fifth, whatever.

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 love the name Charlotte too, and even more so knowing that she shares her birthday with the P.Charlotte whose life (and especially death) had so much impact on the BRF as it is now.
As I understand it, that P.Charlotte was very popular in the country at the time, similar to the popularity of P.Diana in her lifetime, so if little Charlotte takes after them in that aspect it will be great (and i hope she reaches the age of her other namesake, Elizabeth )

I am sure that Harry's eventual daughter will also have Diana as one of her names!
After all, Diana was Harry's mother too and he would probably also like to honour her.
(But William's eventual second daughter will not have, I suppose)

Yes he could use it as a first or second name. Then there is her middle name Frances.

Charlotte is very pretty .Sounds right with her family-William ,Kate George and Charlotte.

Charlotte is now growing in popularity in the U.S.

I just realized that William has a cousin called Lady Charlotte Diana Spencer (daughter of Diana's younger brother), born in 2012. The names are pretty close for two girls who are in the same generation and will probably move in the same circles. But maybe William isn't that close to his uncle.

I'm choosing to see this in a very cup half full way for the royal side of the family.
Charlotte is a beautiful name. I'm always reminded of how much certain areas of my country loved their mother country when I visit Charlotte, NC. Charlotte also nods at the POW.
Elizabeth honors GGmother as well as Charles, who was said to have hope Harry would be a girl, so that Charles could honor his mum with the name.
And Diana - whatever you think of her, William loved his mother. Loves her still. And she loved him. Let him honor that love.

There were many other great names that had great reasons to be chosen. But they were not and we are moving on.

Except they aren't in the same generation. Lady Charlotte is William's first cousin, which makes her a second cousin of Princess Charlotte. Now, age wise, they will grow up in the same era but who knows how often they will see each other. I've never gotten the impression that William has a close relationship with his Uncle Charles.

With respect to the name, while I was hoping for Victoria, I think that Charlotte Elizabeth Diana is simply a beautiful name and quite perfect in so many ways. It honors all sides of both Catherine and William's families. It satiates both sides of the neverending Charles/Diana debate. It has a regal history but isn't overused within the British Royal Family. It is a popular name so it doesn't sound too old-fashioned or dated to modern ears. And, at least to me, I think it has a wonderful flow off the tongue.

One other thought... should W&K have another girl they can still honor Diana by using her middle name as one of that child's middle names. But, for now, if they stop with just their two fabulous children or have no more girls, they have really hit this one out of the park. By any standard, this name is a grand slam!

Nicely done - both paternal grandparents honoured as well as the beloved great-granny.

I saw Charlotte Elizabeth Diana trending number 1 worldwide on Twitter before I saw the announcement!

Age wise, they're of the same generation. As contemporaries, they're bound to know each other on some level and move in the same circles. Technically, Lady Charlotte and Princess Charlotte are first cousins once removed, not second cousins.

I had completely forgotten Earl Spencer's youngest child was called Charlotte Diana.

Hahaha! I can't say I love it because I am not a fan of Charlie as a nickname for a girl much less a princess but definitely a great headline for tomorrow's papers, lol.

Coincidentally, the last Princess Charlotte got married on May 2 1816. Princess Charlotte of Cambridge was born May 2 2015.
