I wonder if Beatrice will go for the name that was originally intended for her by Sarah when she was born: Annabelle.

I can. Yes, lists are made during pregnancy almost always. And prospective parents often have their own preferences and sometimes just can’t agree. Family pressures from grandparents come into it as well, especially with middle names. And sometimes parents take a look at their baby and say, ‘That name we picked out is too ethereal, stolid, prosaic etc for this baby. Back to the list!’

And with royals and semi-royals and their offspring especially, I can imagine the pressures to get it right are intense.

I think the name Annabelle has gone out of style a good bit since the 1980s/90s. I can’t see Beatrice and Edo choosing it.

I sure hope so. I don't like it at all.

Reminds me of the old Dick Van Dyke show where in one episode, the kid finds his birth certificate and wants to know why his middle name is Rosebud. It was made up of the first initials of 7 people close to the parents

I'm one that had the names picked out before delivery and stuck with them.

If she's announced the baby's birth, I dont see why she shouldnt announce the name at some stage... but she's living a fairly private life so probalby not for a bit

I saw on my internet feed that Prince Andrew has left Balmoral and is returning home to his house at Windsor. He has not yet seen the baby. Maybe they are waiting for him to see the baby before they announce the name.

Heu, a pregnancy lasts 9 months, in the eye of Napoléon (who initiated this three-day-rule in the then French-occupied Netherlands) plenty of time to think about a name.

I was told they are already at home and the baby has already been registered. is this open to public to see
So Baby has been named. Personally I think we will get the baby's name from friends soon, nothing official. Maybe instagram or something.

I think you can register a baby's birth without giving a name... AFAIK you can apply to see a birth certificate

If Bea doesn't want to announce it on her twitter or have Eugenie do it on Instagram (or have BP formally announce it) then maybe the proud and often chatty grandmother will do it soon.

Or we wait until they bother to update the website LOS in a couple of months.

I expect the newpapers will dig out the birth certificate if necessary since it's always good for an article or two.

With the baby's name being announced, please continue discussion on the birth/naming in the https://www.theroyalforums.com/forum...1-a-48974.html thread.
