As others I think Beatrice might really be the one to finally bring back Victoria as a first name & I would love that. I think it's a very pretty & strong name

Victoria Elizabeth + a third name for one of Edo's grandmothers (I couldn't find those online)

Beatrice strikes me as someone who would definitely choose a traditional first name.
Alternative guesses:
Amelia, Sophia or Caroline for a girl
I think Elizabeth as a second name is a given, I mean she even wore the Queen's dress for her wedding

Boy names:
Albert Philip + an Italian Mapelli Mozzi family name
Alexander Philip
Alfred Philip
Leopold (Leo) Philip


Lady Louise & Prince William for godparents!

For some reason it feels very much like this little one is a girl.

As for her name....
Victoria Elizabeth Mary
Alexandra Elizabeth Victoria
Victoria Elizabeth Helena

As for her godparents....
I really, really hope that Lady Louise will be selected. She seems close to the York girls and it's been lovely to watch her begin to come into her own within the family as she nears adulthood. It seems likely that she may be asked and I really hope that she is. I think it's likely that Eugenie or Jack along with Edo's brother will be asked. Bea is also, I believe, quite good friends with Holly Branson and Ellie Goulding. So perhaps something along the lines of Lady Louise, Holly Branson, Edo's brother, and Jack?

Victoria or Victor would be a lovely tribute indeed to Princess Beatrice's interest in Victorian history and design.

It would also be fitting if she selected a name from the children of the last Princess Beatrice, daughter of Queen Victoria: Alexander, Victoria Eugénie (commonly called Ena), Leopold, or Maurice.

Apparently they were named Susan and Gigliola, while his grandfathers were named Robert and Gian Paolo.

So I am 90% sure that if it is a girl, a name Susan would be included among her names: Beatrice's maternal grandmother was also named Susan

Let's expand a bit (while sticking to my earlier idea of 'Victoria' (probably called 'Vicky' in daily life)).

Names already in the (wider) family:
Beatrice: Beatrice Elizabeth Mary
Edo: Edoardo Alessandro
Wolfie: Christopher Woolf

Grandparents (with their parents)
Andrew: Andrew Albert Christian Edward (Philip & Elizabeth Alexandra Mary)
Sarah: Sarah Margaret (Ronald & Susan)
Alex: Alessandro (Gian Paolo & Gigliola)
Nikki: Nicola Diana (Susan Arnot & Robert David)

Siblings:
Eugenie: Eugenie Victoria Helena (with child: August Philip Hawke)
Natalia: Natalia Alice
Alby: Albemarle Christopher

My guesses (in doubt about 2 or 3 names)
Daughter: Victoria Alexandra ('Vicky')
--> Alexandra is both in reference to the queen and Edo's father (and himself)

Son: Fergus Albert
--> Had a really hard time coming up with an acceptable first name for a boy until I found this list of true upper class names: and Fergus stood out in connection to the name 'Ferguson' (not very likely but it would be a bold choice).
--> Albert in reference to Beatrice's great-grandfather AND queen Victoria's husband (and grandfather Andrew ALBERT ...)

EDIT: Name of Albemarle into Alby (thanks to TM).

For a boy I LOVE the Italian "Alessandro" or maybe "Christian"...one of Andrew's names.

I also considered Christian but thought it might be too close to 'Christopher'.

I am not sure about Edo's closeness to his father; while I also suggested Alexandra (as a tribute to the queen), that is the reason I doubted them picking Alexander or Alessandro for a son. It seems rather telling that Wolfie's first name is 'Christopher' - the name of Edo's stepfather.

Oh, yes! I forgot about Wolfie's first name being Christopher. You are right...Christian is too similar. It is unlikely they will use it(at least not as a first name)

I agree that Edo doesn't seem close with his father but i hope they won't rule out Alexander/Alessandro as a name.

Albemarle uses the name Alby Shale. I can see your point that Edo Mapelli Mozzi's family seems to have a tradition of being known by nicknames in daily life (Edo, Wolfie, Alby, Nikki, Alex).

Indeed, at Christopher Shale's funeral, Edo Mapelli Mozzi did not refer to Mr. Shale as his stepfather but as "the only father I had ever known".

Isabella as an Italian variation of Elizabeth would be lovely.

Alessandra is nice and she could be called ‘Aless’ -pronounced like Alice - for a nickname.

Susanna is pretty as well.

To honor Philip if it’s a boy they could use Felippo as a middle name.

I am not sure an unanglicized Italian name is likely. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi shortened his Italian first name to the non-Italian (I presume) nickname of "Edo" in daily life, and he and his former partner selected English given names and nickname for his first child. On Princess Beatrice's side of the family, neither her sister nor her parents included unanglicized Greek, Danish, or other foreign names in the names of their children.

).
It is lovely to again be guessing names for a baby in the Royal Family. I love the idea of Fergus Albert. It is about the only one of Andrew's names that is "available and acceptable' to name a little boy. The names Andrew itself would be very unpopular. Christian is too close to young Wolfie's name.While Edward is okay, there is Prince Edward, Edo, who have this name Albert was also the first name of the baby's ggf King George VI.

For a little boy
Albert is a very possible name either s a first name or a middle name
Simon
Nicholas

For a little girl
Susanna
Nicola
Margaret
Pearl

Susan is a name in both families but it somehow didn't sound right for me; but Susanna would be a nice alternative.

The Queen named one of her new puppies "Fergus" so I hardly think that Beatrice would use the name too. And sadly, puppy Fergus died over the weekend.

Susan's another name which is out of fashion at the moment. It was incredibly popular in the 1940s and 1950s, and to a lesser extent in the 1960s and 1970s, but it went "out" and hasn't come back "in" yet ... along with Linda, Janice, Marilyn, Janet, Margaret, Anne and various other names. Suzanne was popular in the 1970s, but that's now "out" as well ... along with Alison, Helen, Sarah, etc. Everything comes back in eventually - Albert was seen as very old-fashioned when I was a kid, and you rarely met an Albert born after the First World War, but it's now "in" again.

I would be shocked to see Eugenie named as a godparent. Eugenie occupies an esteemed and permanent role in the baby's life as an aunt, and I think we will see Beatrice and Edo honor those with a less formal or defined "built-in" role in the child's life by naming them godparents.
