Such exciting news to come home yo after a double shift.

Congratulations to the proud new parents and the entire family.

I love the photo. They share a little something but still keep their son private.

Two grandsons for the Yorks with Wolfie, and fir the Brooksbanks now too.

Has happened in the 20th century. Margaret was going to be Ann until her grandfather stepped in. Beatrice there is rumors her parents wanted to call her Annabelle but the queen stepped in as it was after a club they went to (even though there is royal history).

But I don't think thus far from the throne the queen would interfere.

I don't think the Queen has to "approve" the name - it's just courtesy to mention it to her. If she said she really didn't like their choice, maybe they'd think twice: there's always been a story that she suggested Beatrice and Eugenie because she didn't like Sarah and Andrew's choices, but no-one really knows. Zara was quite an outlandish choice for the royal family, in 1981, and Savannah's unusual even now.


Unless they chose something like Apple or North West or Fifi Trixabelle, I doubt she'd say anything, and, even if she did, they could go for it anyway.


I can't see Eugenie and Jack choosing anything outlandish :-) .

I can't see Eugenie and Jack picking anything really outlandish for the royal family like Hunter or Kai. The "most" they would do is chose something currently popular with the upper class that's a little old fashioned and not really "royal" like the baby's little cousin Wilfred or Tobias or more off beat but still an older name like Jasper or Findley. (I'm seriously terrible at examples but you get my drift).

If the story about the Queen disapproving of Anabel and suggesting Beatrice has any truth to it it might have gone something like this "Anabel hmm, I read so many announcements of little Anabels because of that night club. Do you want your daughter to have the same name as 10 other girls at school? Or have articles about being named after a club the rest of her life? What about a beautiful, old royal name like Beatrice?" rather than "her name is Beatrice, no take backs!"

We have never heard of her objecting to Savannah, Isla, Archie, Mia or Lena, (which are all perfectly fine names) who are in the same position, let alone some of the interesting choices further out.

There have been several unconventional names chosen for the Queen's great-grandchildren: Savannah, Isla, Archie Harrison, and to a lesser extent, Mia and Lena. By unconventional, I mean names that are not normally associated with the Royal Family or the dynasty.



That leads me to believe that Eugenie and Jack will have the freedom to pick whatever name they want for their son (maybe William was the only one among the Queen's grandchildren who faced greater constraints in choosing his children's names). Having said that, the York family strikes me as being traditionalist, so I think Eugenie and Jack will stick to a name with past royal connections.

All the children with un “Royal” names aren’t so far down the line there will never be a Queen Savannah so it really does not matter.If William had lost mind and really was determined to Name his daughter Brittany or Tiffany For example there would have real grumbling And arguing.

I think the Queen will be informed (and maybe, give some comments?) the possible name that the newly parent had chosen, rather than approve it. She knows the possible name, and expresses her feeling, the parents may or may not follow her suggestion. (But who won't listen to their respectable grandma and insist on the name she really hate?)

I always think the traditional name choices might be, more on the parents' part. While you come from a huge family with rich history, you would prefer a name which more fit into the family (something traditional and common in the family), out of personal sense of responsibility and identity (like you have to pass on the family tradition). (Anyway the above said from a person with a completely different naming culture and norm)

agree.. I think that W and Kate went a little unconventional with Louis but they were still within the parameters of royal names.

If Will had wanted to call George something very unusual, i think the queen would have talked him out of it...

I wonder when they'll announce the name. Since it's a boy my guess of Victoria is out. How long did it take for other members of the royal family announce their name?

Could be any time. For Comparison Mia Tindall was born on 17th and her name announced by her Dad 23rd. Her sister was born on 18, birth announced by BP 19th and name announced 27th June.

Isla's birth and name were announced the same time, the day after her birth.

Louise was born on the 8th November and announced 27th likely due to the her and her mother's health.
James was born on 17th December and his name announced 21st.
Louis was 4 days later.
Charlotte's was the next day.
George was 2 days later.
Archie was two days later.

Since they have already put that little photo up on Instagram I suspect they will let us know within the next few days and not wait weeks unless the can't settle on anything as apparently happened with James.

I loved the picture on the Instagram account. Little fingers surrounded by Mom and Dad's. Says "family" to me.
Hence why I said it "would have been wild" - but I think a good wild. I can imagine the 6th is a far more painful day for the Queen than the 9th (no offense Margaret) the birth of a g-grandchild on the same day, so close to the eve of her life, would be a sweet way to remember her father after a lifetime of pain associated with this date.
But that's just me.
Either way it is a joyous occasion.


I just find the "baby body part shown in B&W with parents hands" very basic (in a bad way), overused and not artistic at all. It's more fitting for your own personal album.
But that's just me.
