I love the name. I much prefer Charlotte to Alice. It's young, fresh, classy and classic.
And I like Elizabeth and Diana as well
I had a little question though, since Elizabeth is both Catherine's and Carole's middle name, is it Cartherine's grandmother name, or something like that? Or just family tradition?

Aren't they actually Mountbatten-Windsors or are they going to use the name Cambridge as a surname?

I think they use Cambridge, but that is only a guess. Before he became Duke and was in the services, Will was referred to as Will Wales (his flight suit had Wales on it).

Right, I knew the boys used Wales while in military service (and school I think?) ...I know their name is technically Mountbatten-Windsor (I think Edward's children use this)....I guess we'll find out when George and Charlotte (and any other children) start school.

I love the name! Charlotte (could be after her Aunt Pippa, could be after Grandpa Charles - it's a royal name, modern, and VERY pretty)

Elizabeth - Grandma Carole, Great Grandma Her Majesty, her own mother and her Great Great Grandma (the Queen Mum)

Diana- Grandma Diana.

They've honored everyone, given her a lovely name.

PERFECT!

Also, it's appropriate because Charlotte Bronte is the patron saint of Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Catherine had two hellacious pregnancies and must be grateful to have had two healthy babies at the finish line.

I am in 100% in agreement with you. I do not like this name at all. Elizabeth is a nice name, Diana is OK, but not Charlotte.

She would have been Lady Charlotte Mountbatten-Windsor if the Queen hadn't amended it so all of William's children are HRH. Now she's Princess Charlotte of Cambridge. Good job, HM.

Beautiful dignified names that will still look well in decades to come.
The little Princess is an exceptionally beautiful baby, by the way! "Many years" to her.

Did the Queen and Philip meet her?

William and Catherine are still in Kensington Palace and not at Anmer Hall.

Charlotte is a beautiful name and a little less common than Diana or Elizabeth, which is nice. I also like that, given the opportunity, Harry will be free to name a daughter Diana. I wish her and her family nothing but health and happiness.

No, not yet. I've heard that they (or the Queen at least) will see her tomorrow at KP.

I read somewhere that the Queen is expected to meet her tomorrow, I believe.

I just realized that she will be sharing a name with her 2nd cousin Lady Charlotte Diana Spencer......!!
Also sharing a name with her second cousin Lady Louise Alice ELIZABETH Mary....
Then there's another (distant) cousin, Lady Marina Charlotte Windsor.

I love CHarlotte Elizabeth Diana; it's perfect.

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.

In Sweden its customary that if all is well you go home after a few hours.
Victoria was just doing what everybody else does.

As for little Charlotte's name, I'm a bit disappointed that they didn't use Matilda Early on, I actually had Matilda Elizabeth Diana on my short list but scrapped it because I didn't think they would include Diana.

Overall, I think the name is nice. It's slightly boring that they went for the one of the most predictable names, but I do think Charlotte is very neat and it suits the family very well (and Charles must be an emotional wreck these days ). I'm also beyond thrilled that they chose this and not Alice. As for the other names, I think Elizabeth was a given but Diana surprised me a little. I didn't think they were big on honour names but I was clearly proven wrong. I love that they honoured both Charles and Diana and that they managed to indirectly honour the Middleton family as well (I particularly that they continued the C-name + Elizabeth tradition).

Can you post more info on this Charlotte Bronte patron saint info? Unless it was a joke I don't get. I know Charlotte Bronte may have died because of hyperemesis gravidarum but I wouldn't exactly call her the patron saint of it.

Also, just because Catherine suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum at some point in her pregnancy does not mean she herself considers her pregnancies to have been 'hellacious.'

For the most part, the Cambridges are not making any fuss over the most recent candid shots of their son, so whether we agree or not, they have probably decided to pick their battles. All they can do is hope that there's some human decency left in the world when it comes to letting their kids,grow up with as little press/pap intrusion as possible.

There is no quoted source on that. I think probably family pictures will be released as they did with George and then we'll see Charlotte at her christening. And that's good! Newborns are 1) not that interesting as they basically eat, sleep, cry and poop and that's about it and 2) aren't prepared for the stress and rigors of crazy media presence. Let the kid be with her parents peacefully, at least until she can hold her head up without help.

Lovely name. I hope they don't call her Lottie. Her name goes well with George and her parents names. All of the names don't flow well in English because the tte makes you stop and then have to take a breath to say the vowel e in Elisabeth. Diana would have flowed better as a second name but I can see why they used Elisabeth second, for Many reasons
