For those who wished for originality in names, I give you Apple (Paltrow-Martin) and Moxie Crimefighter (magician Penn Gillette). Or what about Frank Zappa's daughter Moon Unit?

Hmmm. Princess Moon Unit of Cambridge...

I like the names. I'll be honest, Diana is the one I like the least, but I like the fact it's included. I also don't see why they don't "flow" - it's a mouthful but I think they go quite well together.

Zappa's other daughter Diva Thin Muffin also was a low point in celebrity naming history. I like Charlotte. I read somewhere that it is Pippa's middle name and Elizabeth is Carol's so they got pretty much all the women in.

The names flow fine. I think you're just unhappy they included Diana.

They're already out there saying we won't see Charlotte for another three months. I still say that's a mistake on their part but it's their choice.

I am not surprised by their choice, a good nice name, honouring all close family members.

Perfect names. My 2-year old Charlotte Diana will be thrilled at cousinly name-sharing. Is at an age where thinks world revolves around her!

Meanings Charlotte that I've seen are "strong and virile" and "vigorous."

Elizabeth comes from the Hebrew "Elisheva" and is most frequently translated as "my God is an oath," though I've seen a number of variations of that

Diana is believed to be derived from an old Indo-European root meaning "heavenly" or "divine."

(These things can obviously get a bit confusing. I find the website behindthename.com to be quite helpful in terms of providing name origins and also name variations. Others members might know of some other good sources, though.)

Very interesting. Thanks a lot

I think we will get a picture of the new family of four in the next couple of weeks then we won't see her again until her christening.

You do realize there is a difference ebetween unquestionably and ridiculous. Charlotte is a unqie name in the RF and I'm glad they chose unqie. The least liked name is Diana but at least it's at the end.

I think Charlotte is the female version of Charles.

I am also very surprise at how the little princess very much resembles her brother the prince, right out of the womb!
Now here is a question that may have been asked already: Does anyone know why the Duchess left the hospital the same day as the birth??? I know she stayed in like 2 or 3 days with George. I was just wondering if it was personal choice or maybe since George was a boy and 3rd in line to the throne, that maybe they wanted to make sure everything was ok health wise before they let him go. Or maybe since Catherine's labor was much longer with him, they wanted her to stay?? I'm just curious. I think only Princess MM for Norway was the only other Princess that I can think of the went to the hosp, delivered, and left the same day. Very unusual.
I remember Crownprincess Victoria did the same.
As far as leaving hospital after giving birth, its custom in Denmark that, if no complications occur, you have to leave the hospital after 2 days with your firstborn, and when you have another child you have to leave after 4 hours.

Someone in this thread mentioned "Bonnie Princess Charlie" as a possible news headline, and whoever it was must be psychic, because the front page of the Tuesday's Metro has the headline "A bonnie Princess Charlotte."

How long did we wait to get the first "official" pictures of George?

Do not like the name. Do not care for Charlotte or Diana. Elizabeth was a given.

The only redeeming part of Charlotte is it is a girl's name that has a male nickname. So it is Georgie and Charlie.

Also Catherine continues her family tradition of the C first name with Elizabeth middle name.

I would have preferred a Francesca rather than a Diana and an Alexandra rather than a Charlotte.

Alexandra Elizabeth Francesca.

Well maybe Harry will show some originality.
I mean no offense, but have you stopped to consider that you're taking this too seriously, and thus are angrier than you need to be over something that ultimately doesn't concern or affect you? The future king is not going to be "original" when naming one of his children. Katie Price can be original. I don't know what kind of name you were expecting William and Catherine to give her, but it wasn't going to be something out of left field or something that would not be suitable for royalty. As for why they chose to name her what they did, so what if they chose the names because they liked them? Isn't that what you're supposed to do? You wouldn't give your kid a name you don't like, would you?

You don't have to like the name Charlotte (I personally don't get what is so objectionable about it), but try and keep this in its proper perspective; two people you don't know and who you will never know gave their daughter a name. That's it. It's not a personal affront.

Hmmm. Interesting choice. She'll be the butt of some unkind jokes somewhere along the way during her school years.

But I do like Charlie as a short form. It works for a girly girl as well as a tomboy. Not so keen on Lottie though.

I thought Diana was inevitable and I'm not surprised to see Elizabeth there either. It's a way of honouring all families but giving the child a distinctive name of her own.

He's Charlotte's great-uncle and he's happy that she share a similar name to his daughter. Nothing wrong with that.

You are wrong there.

When George was born I congratulated William for honoring his mother by using all Spencer names.

Using the same tactic for the second time, I see this as slap in the face to the royal family.

Charlotte: Pippa's middle name and the Middleton pattern of naming the first daughter's first name starting with C. Also the name of Charles Spencer's daughter and the a variant of his name.
Elizabeth: middle name of Catherine and Carole Middleton.
Diana:

George's name corresponds to Diana's nephews from her siblings in the order her sibling's birth.

George: Sarah's son
Alexander: Jane's son
Louis: Charles' son

Why is that? (Other than the fact that most children are subject to some unkind jokes at some point or another).
