Fred & Mary
Girl : Sofie Margarethe Marie Alexandrine
Boy : Johan Alexander Holger Frederik

Felipe & Letizia
Girl : Catalina
Boy : Carlos/Alfonso (although I love the combined name Alfonso Juan Pelayo)

Haakon & Mette-Marit
Girl : Anna Kathrin
Boy : Sven Harald

Willem-Alexander & Maxima
Girl : Anabel Emma Maria Margriet
Boy : Alexander Willem Georg Constantijn

For the Dutch babies, I went with the pattern that W-A and Maxima seem to have with the triple A-team: an A name, the name of a Dutch monarch, one of Maxima's relatives, and then a godparent. Since there have only been three regnant Dutch queens, I went with the consort of the last king, Willem III. For a boy, I went with Georg instead of Jorge, because I don't know her father's name would sound in Dutch :)

I guessed for Mathilde & Philippe:

But now they named their daughter Eleonore.
So my guess for a 5th child is:
Elena Paola Sophia Laura Marie for a girl.
Raphael, Michael, Daniel, Samuel, Nathanael for a boy. But i still like Raphael best.

For a potential William/Kate daughter, I'd guess we'd see some combination of Elizabeth, either Charlotte or Caroline (for Charles and perhaps also Carole Middleton), Diana, and perhaps Victoria, especially if she's an eldest daughter who might one day reign. Perhaps Elizabeth Caroline Victoria Diana?

Kotroman 04-05-2009 07:59 AM

I sincerely hope that the future King William V will have only daughters and that the eldest one's first name is Mary. I really want Queen Mary III in the future! :smile: One of her middle names should be Diana, as others have proposed.

Henry William Michael Charles

kathia_sophia 06-24-2011 03:39 PM

i would love to see William and Kate having a girl and names her Mary or Victoria. i would so happy to see again a Queen Mary or Queen Victoria (if the constitution changes)

for boys i want Richard and John, they are so royal and in decades that are no Kings in England with that names, what a pity

I'm loving all of your choices. just one thing I have the feeling William and Catherine will do the 3 names instead of 4.

George VI, Charles and William all have Arthur as one of their names. I would bet the farm on Will and Cate's son having the name also.

If William and Kate have more than one son, yes I could see it happening. In the cases above I think it was just coincidence. Charles is said to have wanted to use Arthur for his first son, but Diana selected William. My guess is they would use names that have more meaning to them, especially if they only use two middle names, such as Philip, Charles, Henry, Michael, or James. Since there is nobody in the immediate family with the name Arthur (expect Arthur Chatto), I just don't see it happening for the FIRST son, I do agree it would be a good possibility if they have more than one son though.

pgm1952 06-24-2011 11:43 PM

As long as they do not name their son John I am happy! It is a name connected to the last and epeleptic child of George V and Queen Mary. I would love to see another King George or Edward in my lifetime and have it be their son!!

If they have a girl I would hope that Diana would be one of the four names but not the first! I am very superstitious and I also think there will only be one Diana in people's hearts even decades down the line.

Meadow 06-25-2011 04:25 AM

I doubt they would choose Edward for a first name being that there is already a Prince Edward. I think Diana could be the second name for a daughter but not a first. I remember that Prince Charles wanted Victoria in case he had a daughter and wouldn't let Andrew and Sarah use it. So Victoria would certainly have his vote but I'm not sure it would with William and Katherine. I do love Charlotte and Elizabeth would be a tribute to the Queen. I would love them to have girls only so after two kings we would have a Queen! What about Phillip for a boy or George would be good too. Or they may go modern and choose something new.

IloveCP 06-25-2011 05:39 AM

I doubt they will go for John.The british royals think that name is a curse.

CarolineMathilde 06-26-2011 04:33 PM

I think that William and Kate will have 3 children, 2 daughters and 1 son. The succession line will be changed so that their first-born, a girl, will be the heir.

Elizabeth Catherine Sophie Diana
Victoria Charlotte Mary Alexandra
Edward William Arthur Philip

CarolineMathilde 06-26-2011 04:45 PM

Victoria and Daniel: (I think they will have 3 daughters and 1 son)

Seeing as Beatrice wasn't born until 1988 and Eugenie in 1990, did Charles actually think he and Diana would have another child at that point?

Molly2101 06-26-2011 04:59 PM

A random question, but does Queen Elizabeth have to see the names chosen for Royal family members before they settle on the names? Does she have to agree with them?

free2rhyme 06-26-2011 05:12 PM

The answer is yes (sort of). She probably has to give an "okay" to those who have the potential to one day reign. For the others I would say no, as I don't see her being the type to approve the names of Zara and Savannah Phillips.

Good question. I assume it's more about common royal sense:tongue:
Specially in William's position the names have to be more traditional than the others so HM would trust his and Catherine's decision.

On another note, I was watching the christening of the Danish twins and love that they included one Greenlandic name for the girl (Ivalo) and the boy (Minik). So, How about William and Catherine choosing one welsh name among the 3 or 4 that they will probably use?! It would be nice since he is know as William Wales and also because they are spending the first years of married life in Anglesey.
Anyways, I think it could be a nice gesture and 'spice' it up a little their selection ;D!

Behind the Name: Welsh Names

CATRIN - Welsh form of KATHERINE

Duchess of Darwin 06-28-2011 01:39 AM

I will chuck a wobbly if William and Catherine pick Diana for a girl, I will seriously be like this :argh: :nonono: :bang: :mad: That said, I don't think they are going to. I remember William saying "Noone is filling my Mother's shoes" and that gives me hope. It would be too much of a legacy to straddle the poor girl with. I love Mary and Victoria, but confusion is a potential snag with them given that Denmark already has a Mary, and Sweden already has a Victoria. I'm probably just being anal there. Charles did want Victoria saved for a girl, and Crown Princess Victoria had already been born at that point. As for other girl names, they're long shots (respectable as they are) but I like Lucy, Evangeline, and Xanthe :whistling:

Moving on to boy names, I like Aaron, Jack, and Xavier, but they're also long shots, albeit respectable ones. My guesses would be Arthur and/or George ;)

On the issue of whether The Queen has to give her consent, I don't think she has any say in the matter, not when Princess Alexandra's Grandaughters could be called Zenouska and Flora :rolleyes:

Do you mean you would be surprised if they choose Diana as a first name? or at all?
I doubt they will use it as a first name, but see no problem if William decides to use it as one of the 4 names. Actually it's a very sweet gesture, IMO.

Behind the Name: Welsh Names

CATRIN - Welsh form of KATHERINE


Thanx for the list of Welsh names. Of course, some are just not very cool - think 'Winnifred!' For a girl, the Welsh moniker 'Gwyneth' is very pretty, and for a boy, I like 'Vaughn.' It is time to began an old 'tradition of new names. Most 'royal' names are very out of character with today's new generation of royals. Some names have also been very used too much - how many Princess Alexandra's can you think of, and in Denmark, the 'Christian' and 'Frederik' tradition - give it a rest!

IDK for sure, but I do believe 'Zenouska' is a Polish and/or Hungarian, whichever is the nationality of her father.

Duchess of Darwin 06-28-2011 02:49 AM

Mia mae - I was talking purely about first names, which I guess I should've made clear. I could live with Diana as a second/thrid/fourth name. I would only start going :shock: if it was used as a first name.

NotHRH - Zenouska is meant to sound Russian, but I googled "Zenouska, Baby Name" and I couldn't find anything in terms of it's meaning. By the way, I agree with you about more variety being needed (within reason) I know how I said that I liked Mary, Victoria, and George, but these are purely the realistic choices I like best.

Meadow 06-28-2011 03:28 AM

What is it with the Frederick/Christian thing? Why only those two names? It must be confusing at family functions. William and Catherine may go more modern with names after they have the actual heir. Prince Charles chose Zara's name he had read it and mentioned it to Anne who loved it. Maybe he has others up his sleave?

NotHRH 06-28-2011 04:11 AM

'Arthur' is simply a very old-fashioned, dreadful moniker to give a child these days. How many children are named 'Arthur' these days - or how many boys in kindergarten have that particular name?
It would although complement HRH the Earl of Wessex's daughter, HRH Lady Louise Windsor.

Why does HRH the Lady Louise Windsor have the last name 'Windsor,' instead of 'Mountbatten- Windsor?'

It is a Danish tradition that the Kings names alternate Frederik-Christian. There is currently only one Frederik and one Christian in the immediate Danish Royal Family - the heir, and the heir's heir (both future Kings). There is a Count Christian of Rosenborg, though, the Queen's first cousin. So not much confusion there.

Each of the Danish princes born in recent times have had either Frederik or Christian as one of the names, except for Prince Joachim's youngest son, Henrik. Just in case they become King unexpectedly, they can carry on the naming tradition.

orb and sceptre 07-15-2011 12:27 AM

For William and Kate, the pressure will be on to choose very regal names for any and all children- unlike in the past, where a Prince could go by one name at home and reign under another, the press these days is entirely too invasive for that to ever work. I'm predicting that there will be little to no creativity; I feel as though our "commoner" Duchess will want to ruffle as few feathers as possible. Also, I'm surprised at the number of people who include Diana in a future British Princess' name, but not Carole (as in Middleton).

Not a prediction, but just my preference:

HRH Princess Mary Victoria Elizabeth Diana
- I'd love for there to be another Queen Mary!

HRH Princess Alexandra Catherine Carole Anne
- I am convinced that royals will never stop naming their daughters Alexandra, and the Cambridges are no exception.

XeniaCasaraghi 07-15-2011 12:30 AM

Good Gracious! I just found out that Edward VIII was born with like 50 names. WTH, that has to be in the record books or something.

JessRulz 07-15-2011 01:06 AM

:previous:

Edward VIII had seven given names - Edward Albert Christian George Andrew Patrick David.

He is however beaten by Princess Caroline-Mathilde of Denmark. She had ten given names - Caroline-Mathilde Louise Dagmar Christine Maud Augusta Ingeborg Thyra Adelheid - as does her son, Count Ingolf of Rosenborg. I would also not find it surprising if many of the various German royals of the same time period had seven/eight+ given names.

I feel very let down by my one given name...:whistling:;)

See these royals are just going crazy with the names. Birth certificate has some writing on the back with the continuing of the names.

I feel very let down by my one given name...:whistling:;)

There are records of royals with more than ten names, even twenty-two for an infant of Portugal. The last portuguese royal family was used to give many given names to children.

What? Are you kidding? Jeez....that have to be a record.

QueenRachel 07-15-2011 05:30 AM

William and Kate's baby could be named

Alexandra Elizabeth or Caroline Elizabeth...i'm not sure if there will be Diana in it...i don't think so

or Edward Philip Michael David

Yes, the German royals used to go crazy with their given names, but I think that Price Sixto of Bourbon-Parma with his 23 given names might be the record holder.

Tilla 07-15-2011 06:01 AM

What is the reason behind the idea to give so many names?

XeniaCasaraghi 07-15-2011 08:01 PM

Im wondering the same thing. Someone needs to make a law to stop giving your children so many darn names. It doesn't make you look important, it just makes your child look ridiculous. It's like the royal equivalent of naming your kid Apple.

Mirabel 07-15-2011 09:52 PM

I can't imagine what name William and Kate could give a baby boy; all the royal names are in use!

Except for John and that is considered unlucky.
But Henry, Charles, William, George, Richard, Edward. are in use.

I thought James would be the best choice, but Edward took that for his own son. I guess it could be used again, but I don't know if that's a good idea.

The only kingly name I can think of that somebody isn't already using is Stephen, but he was considered something of a usurper.

Well, there is always Albert :whistling: And remember thatfd Edward VIII was known as David in the family, so the child doesn't have to be called by his given future regal name.

There is already a little Albert in the young of the Windsor family, a grand-son of the dukes of Kent.

Duchess of Darwin 07-16-2011 07:59 AM

Albert is too old fashioned anyway, and as for Stephen, it doesn't go well with Prince IMHO (I can't say it without lisping :rofl: ) I think it would be a great idea to have one of the King names as a second/third/fourth name, so that it can be used as a regnal name, but it would be so boring to have another Prince George or Prince Richard. What about Prince Benjamin or Prince Martin? :whistling: I feel the same way about the girl names. The Queen names would be wonderful as second/third/fourth names, but another Princess Victoria or Princess Alexandra would just be :sleep: I'm hoping for Princess Lydia or Princess Rachel instead :lol:

Renata4711 07-16-2011 08:52 AM

I have a feeling that several of these would be frowned upon, but it would be nice if the "names pool" were to be refreshed !

Duchess of Darwin 07-16-2011 07:16 PM

It would although complement HRH the Earl of Wessex's daughter, HRH Lady Louise Windsor. Very few baby girls are named such any more. She is a very beautiful little girl indeed!

Why does HRH the Lady Louise Windsor have the last name 'Windsor,' instead of 'Mountbatten- Windsor?'

Her full title is Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor, and was used as such for the Royal Wedding Order of Service. I think, for simplicity, Lady Louise Windsor is used.

I think it would be good if the Royal family introduced new names to the lineage, though nothing too "modern".

ladongas 07-16-2011 07:43 PM

As I recall, there was some discussion (don't ask me who!), that Diana would be an unsuitable name for a Queen, and that should she have become Queen, she would be known as Queen Frances (her middle name).
So perhaps Frances would be one of the choices considered for a girl's name. And for a boy, perhaps something like Peregrine or Bertram - just kidding.

Anyway, Albert isn't a kingly name; there has never been a King Albert! The kingly names are: William, Henry, Edward, John, Charles, James, George, Richard, Stephen. I think that's it!

Meadow 07-16-2011 10:34 PM

Stephen? I don't think that is very kingly I have a brother called that not very regal sounding to me. Richard, George, James, William, Edward and Charles. John is so common and Henry makes me think of King Henry the VIII. I think William and Catherine will stick to tradition but Harry may be a little different.

I have a son called Arthur (he is 5 years old)...we love the name and as for how many kids in kindergarten share his name...well, ZERO, just the way we like it! I would hate my kids to be lost in the sea of mediocrity that is 'modern' naming...Using 'unique' names that everyone else has just doesn't wash with me...

There are more kingly names than these, for example: Alfred, Edmund, Edgar, Harold, and all those names in house of Wessex.

XeniaCasaraghi 07-17-2011 03:40 AM

Queen Frances, good gawd that is horrible. Who in their right mind would want a Queen Frances.
I agree that Arthur is too much of an old fashioned name to use today, and hopefully any British Royal male who has that name will get over the legend of Camelot and not use it if he becomes king.
Stephan was the name of a king of England, and despite the fact that it is a great name; I don't think King Stephan has a history that people want to be brought up.

AnnaNotherThing 07-17-2011 07:01 AM

I really don't think the first given name (as part of a royal combo) has to be the 'monarch's' name...look at King George VI, he wasn't born a George, he was known as Bertie (from Albert)...his full name was Albert Frederick Arthur George...So my point is if William and Catherine decide they want to name their daughter Diana or their son Arthur, he/she may not choose to take the throne under that name especially if their full names are something like - Diana Charlotte Alexandra Elizabeth or Queen Elizabeth III; Arthur Charles Henry William or King Charles ? - I guess that is one of the reason royals are given so many name, so they have options...and maybe a name for childhood and a name to rule under....

But I don't think the RF goes back to the time before William the Conqueror when choosing names. And I think there's only about ten choices and they are all in use...except Stephen and John.

Maybe they could use Henry and call the child Henry instead of Harry?

The Queen should never have let Edward take James; not like his son will ascend the throne, and he could have picked anything.

I thought Arthur was a very common name these days in Europa. It is the eight most given boyish name in France and it is in the top 20 in Swiss and Belgium.

Prnce William could still call his child James. There are two current Prince Edward's (Duke of Kent and Earl of Wessex) in the Royal family, neither of which will ever be Monarch, so why not have two James'. William could also give the middle name of James to his son and then he could use this middle name when he ascends to the throne, like David and Bertie did (King Edward VIII and King George VI respectively.)

I personally think a new name should be used for their son. It gets a bit boring having the same names used. I like the sound of King Alexander...

So you're telling me there is no chance he'll be named Ethelred?

XeniaCasaraghi 07-19-2011 02:14 AM

Im still hoping for a Stephan. And James is definitely better than the boring stuff that is currently used: Charles, Philip, Henry etc. Only good one in the bunch is Andrew.

I'm with you!

Except for Andrew, which isn't a traditional kingly name; Prince Andrew was named for his paternal grandfather, Prince Andrew of Greece.

But I really like King Stephen.

I think James would be best, because it is a kingly name for both- England and Scotland! (Whatever happens, I hope they don't go with George again! I hate that).

Mia_mae 07-19-2011 10:18 AM

I don't have a problem with Arthur or George, but Alexander would be a perfect selection.
Actually I'm thinking Alexandra is even better. After 2 boys, I'd prefer if a girl came next ;)

I also think Henry it's great (and much better than Harry), so they could named and call the baby that.

But what happens if Scotland goes it's own way, as is rumored might happen?
Then the poor baby would be stuck with a Scottish kingly name for a country he wouldn't even reign over. :sad:

Yes, but between Henry I and Henry II, England had a King Stephen. He was a disaster

vittoria 07-19-2011 12:51 PM

There was a King Stephen in England, but his right to the throne was disputed by his cousin Matilda, the only surviving legitimate child of Henry I, who named her as his heir. Too many people were not ready for a female monarch, and they threw their support to Stephen, Henry's nephew. The result was a messy civil war, eventually resolved by Stephen's naming Matilda's son his heir. The son became Henry II.

So, the name Stephen has some negative associations in the history of the UK monarchy, but then, so do some other royal names currently in use.

Vecchiolarry 07-19-2011 02:58 PM

Hi,

I'd go with Geoffrey and Eleanor - royal names but not used lately.

I should really stop getting my hopes up for a Stephan or an Alexander; this is a couple with the names William and Catherine, so I doubt they will try to push any envelopes no matter how little it needs to be pushed. I think Kate's parents should help with the baby name choices, because they did good with there's and all of them are named after Kings and Queens of England.

Now that you mention Catherine's siblings, I remembered her brother is called James, so I doubt they'd actually give their child the Christian name of James, but I definitely think it would be a middle name. I like the name Phillipa, and I like that they shortened it to Pippa. Very pretty name. I am with you on the King Alexander idea though. Sounds very Regal. (Really i'd love Edward's little boy to become King just so he could be King Theo I, for the sheer amusement of it, but it is obviously never going to happen.)

I like the name Philippa, but defenitive not the diminutive Pippa, as it's considered a four-letter word in Swedish. If she ever visits Sweden I hope for her own sake that she will call herself Philippa.

Same in Russian. When I heard that diminutive for the first time, I wondered if I heard wrong. Of course when I saw it in writing, I understood that I indeed had no hearing issues. I'm not crazy about the full name at all. It sounds too matronly to me.

XeniaCasaraghi 07-20-2011 08:28 PM

I don't like the name Philippa either, but I still applaud her parents for at least being different.

Mirabel 07-21-2011 10:36 AM

I like Philippa; it sounds distinguished.

But I agree that William and Kate are apt to stick with the traditional.

I expect they'll use both Michael and Charles for middle names, though.

IloveCP 07-26-2011 02:21 PM

If Will and Kate have a girl I would love to see her have the name of,Mary Elizabeth Anne Victoria,after all the female monarchs of England.

Molly2101 07-26-2011 02:49 PM

I'd also love them to give their daughter the christian name Victoria, particularly if she is the eldest child/heir apparent, as we would then have another Queen Victoria.

Rebafan81 07-26-2011 03:00 PM

I know the William and Kate's first child will one day be king/queen but I really wish they would infuse the House of Windsor with some new names, or at least find old name that havent been used for a while, I am really tired of all the same names among the English Royals. I just hope they pick better names then Fred and Mary, I am sorry, but I still dont like Josefine or Vincent.
