Right and wrong about Cecilia/Celia.

As a stand alone name, yes they come from different roots. But Celia has been a common nickname for Cecilia for generations.


Alexandra is a wonderful example of how new names enter into a family tree when royals marry a foreigner. As I pointed out in my post, Julia indeed is found in the upper crust. But the current trend in those circles tend to either be for classical names (Eloise and Louis type names) or more trendy names like Isla (there are quite a few among the aristocratic kids now). Julia is neither classical (just a name out of vogue for a few decades) or trendy right now. But it might be a nice surprise to see.

As far as I know there is already a Julia in the family: Princess Alexandra of Kent's daughter in law. I would love to see family names but not Elizabeth or John which I think are unlucky names in the House of Windsor.

There are two Alexanders in the royal family: Alexander Windsor, Earl of Ulster (Prince Richard, The [2nd] Duke of Gloucester's son) and Alexander Ogilvy (James Ogilvy's son)

I don't know about the possibility of picking the same name, but Edward was popular
  • Edward VIII (1894–1972)
  • Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex (b. 1964)
  • Prince Edward, (1st) Duke of Kent (b. 1935)
  • Edward Windsor, Baron Downpatrick (b. 1988)

If they want to name the child after the Grandfather or Great grandfather or after the female side of the family it is their choice not anyone else's. One of my children has a French first name and a Greek middle name, I was told they need to be called what is popular or traditional in my husbands Country. We asked them if they are paying for this child until Adulthood? They became quiet vulgar. My or our responds was to tell them politely TMTOB. No more was said.
Who is trying to influence Jack and Eugenie to pick a specific name? I haven't read any reports on people pressuring them.

This topic is just us speculating what they might pick. I don't think anybody expects them to 'listen to us'. And I am sure they will pick names they like/having meaning to them and according to what is important to them (and that might include an understanding of the public's opinion on Eugenie's father)...

Nonetheless, I don't really understand what 'paying for a child's upbringing' has to do with the right to name the child. Isn't being the child's parents enough? I prefer a world in which money is not the determining factor...

Agree somebody. This is just a fun thread to vote and guess on what we think they may choose.

No one but the queen has any say in what they name this baby, besides the parents. And this far removed from the throne I doubt the queen would interfere.

John is considered unlucky true. Due to the deaths of the sons of George V and Edward VII. Though Edward's son was Alexander John, and Alexander has not been out of use for being unlucky.

Don't recall Elizabeth being seen as unlucky.

And even in the case of the queen, she would have no legal right to interfere if the parents decided to ignore her opinion.

Back to picking possible names,does any-one think Angela/Angelina is a possibility?Angela was one of the middle names of QEQM, and as far as I know, it has not been used in the RF.

Also, if Jack and Eugenie went with other family names, there are lots of lovely new names to bring in. Nicole/Nicola, Susan/Susanna, Celia/Cecily/Cecilia, Christina/Christine would all have special meaning for a little girl. i am still treing tp think of names for a little boy.

I doubt if Eugenie is going to go back to her grandmother's middle names... She will problaby have a fashionable name as a first name and if its a girl Eliz will be in there somewhere, and mabye a name from Jacks side of the family....

I think there will be some "family names" in there as well as Deville says a high chance of a fashionable upper class names which are often twists on old fashioned or classical names e.g Wilfred for Jack's nephew.

I don't necessarily think we're going to see Sarah Elizabeth Nicole or Phillip Andrew George, even though I'm sure one of those sorts of names will make it in at least. But even the Cambridges got a (tiny) bit more inventive than that, as did Eugenie's own names.

no probably for a girl it would be "fashionable name, Elizabeth Margaret" which is Sarah's second name...

I have come up with some names for a little boy. Only possible first names.
Simon
Patrick
Adrian

I do like trying to guess royal baby names. It is harmless fun in the midst of covid, and who knows, I might just guess the right name. Buckley's chance of course.

Harry as godfather - they are particularly close as cousins
Freddie or Sophie Windsor - Eugenie is godmother to their eldest girl

But I also doubt we will ever hear the godparents or see pictures of the christening

I forgot to add Zenouska Mowatt (daughter of Marina Ogilvy and granddaughter of Princess Alexandra, The Hon. Lady Ogilvy) as a possible godparent for Baby Brooksbank. Zenouska and Eugenie were born few months apart, attended the same "school"/pre-school and remained close (Zenouska attended Eugenie's wedding). They are also third cousins through George V and third cousins-once-remove of George I of Greece and Denmark.

I think at least one christening picture will be released and I wouldn't be surprised either if we get to know who the godparents are.

Is it possible that newspapers will publish the birth registration, as they did for the Cambridge children and Archie, or is there too little interest?

Beatrice and Eugenie seem to be happily doing things quite traditionally so I expect we will hear the birth and godparents news without much fuss but announced with pride and joy.

More possible name suggestions. I think Eugenie and Jack will be a little more traditional than Zara and Mike.

Eleanor
Isabella
Julia for a girl, and for a boy

Paul,
Stephen
Edmund
