I cannot see Jack and Eugenie picking the same old boring royal Names (William and Catherine didn't have much choice but even they went for rarer Royal names). I do not see them as choosing names like Archie or like Anne's grandchildren (not double ups anyway).

I can see them choosing names from the list the British upper class use, traditional and maybe rather unusual. So far I cannot make many predictions.

It is possible they could use Christopher Jack's middle name or Christian one of Andrew's names for a boy.

A girl could be Helena/Helen for Eugenie , Susan/Susanna after Sarah's mother, or Isabella Eleanor for something completely new and different but still very old Royal Queens of England. I will post new names as I think of possibilities.

I think they will choose names that have some personal or historical significance...not just a trendy name they like, such as Isla or Savannah.

Rarer royal names? Maybe in the case of Louis as they named him after a non-royal family member. But George and Charlotte? They certainly didn't branch out on those ones.

I don't see using Christopher at least as a first name. Eugenie's step-nephew's name is Christopher (even if he goes by Wolfie). I guess they could, but I think they may avoid using the same name for cousins (even if only by marriage cousins).

True not totally rare, but George hadn't been used for a Royal Prince since George 1st Duke of Kent. While the Earl of St Andrews is George after his grandfather , he is almost 60 years old. The last Princess Charlotte I know of in the British Royal Family was the daughter of George IV. She died over 200 tears ago, so for me, these circumstances make the names rare.

George was in honor of the six king Georges before him, mainly the queen's father. Whether it has been used in recent years, hardly a 'rare'. Charlotte is as much as nod to her grandfather, as it is to the Princess of Wales before Victoria. Nothing rare, unexpected or such about choosing those.

I always think of the godparent role as a way to honor close friends with a formal role in a child's life, and would be surprised to see Beatrice as a godparent for that reason. She already has a prominent role in this baby's life as his or her aunt.

I only want to know 2 things:

Boy or Girl? People say the way she is carrying is a big indication of the sex?

Delivery date: What is early 2021, in pregnancy terms?

Godparents:

Princess Beatrice and the Duchess of Cambridge.

I wonder if the couple already know the sex of the baby?

I thought it has been speculated that it will be a February baby, in which case it might be born near Andrew's birthday. As for carrying being an indication of the baby's sex that generally is supposed to occur late in the pregnancy, eight or nine months on.

I've just always had a feeling since we heard the news that this baby will be a boy. And that the name may come from Jack's side of the family, though a middle name could well include Andrew. I too think that the first name will be traditional and upper class but not too out there. Perhaps Thomas or Christopher.

I don't think they'll pick Christopher, given that that's Beatrice's stepson's name.

Jack's nephew's (his brother Thomas' son) name is Wilfred Stamp Ewing Brooksbank. He was born in 7th July this year. I think it's highly unlikely the Jack and Eugenie are naming their child Wilfred (if the baby is a boy). There is the possibility of Stamp as a middle name, given that it is Jack's paternal grandfather's first name. I'm not quite sure where Ewing stems from though.

P.s. Boris Johnson's son is also called Wilfred, named after Boris's paternal grandfather.

I see them employing some dynastic names for the baby.

Girl: Mary Susan Elizabeth
or Andrea Marian Jane

Boy: Albert Ivor Christian
or Douglas Stamp William


I don't see them getting trendy with names.

I hope Eugenie and Jack will have a sweet little boy. And if Andrew is one of his middle names why not he is the child's GRANDFATHER after all. He is not the only Andrew in the Royal Family.

There's always Prince Andrew of Greece, Prince Philip's father but I think he's the only one who had it as a first name in the more immediate family.

They can of course name the baby whatever they want but if they have a boy and want to honour his maternal grandfather, he does have several middle names that are less on the nose than Andrew.

Yes Andrew's called after him...but I think that its likely they might use one of A's other names

They can always called the child, Adrian or Andrea - if she wishes to honour her father.

I dont see them using a variation of Andrew. If they honor him I see them either going Andrew as a middle name, or one of his middle names, simply.

Really the only male variation of Andrew is Andreas/Andre (Adrian is totally unrelated). I don't see baby Andreas Brooksbank.

He is in fact the only Andrew in the royal family. He was named after his Greek grandfather (a member of the Greek royal family not the BRF). The closest you get is Edward VIII who had it as a middle name as he had the names of all the patron saints of Great Britain as middle names.

We have one photo (other then the couple) of their wedding. Bea's mother and sister didnt appear in photos. His parents and siblings didnt appear in photos. Andrew wasnt 'forbidden from being in family photos'.

This generation is (rightfully) not bound by naming the children after the grandparents.....unless you are danish and has to be baptized Christian or Frederik 😆
It is true that the naming of British children in general is no longer bound to tradition, but as was pointed out, this particular couple appears to be rather traditional, as do their close family members. (For instance it was their decision to be married using an older wedding service, rather than the service used for the majority of Church of England marriages over the last 20 years.) I would predict a traditional English name, and it would be nice if they would continue the "Stamp Brooksbank" family tradition from the father's side.

I think the most important thing is that this little boy or girl is HEALTHY. Everything else will fall into place. If they want to give the child the name Andrew or Andrea not a big deal. It is their child not anyone else's. They are the parents no one on this Forum is. I also know one of Charles"s sons has the name David. The Duke of Windsor had a great fall from Grace. No one said anything about it. And what about Jack? every little baby boy named Jack is said what named after Jack the R. really this is getting a bit too far. This young couple do not have to please anyone else but themself's and their Families. Maybe if they have to please everyone on this Forum they need to call him Hey You. As Godparent if boy William and Jack's brother and maybe a friend. If girl Kate and Beatrice and one of her friends.
