I wonder if John will ever come back into fashion?

This is a lovely ballad about a JOHN HENRY.

My last two bobs worth after going through the list of most popular British names. Surprised I liked more boys than girls names.

Noah, Lucas, Kaden, Leo, Aidan
Grace, Lilly, Kaia, Lydia.

Experts predict if the baby is a girl, her name is Alice. Experts predict if the baby is a boy, his name is Arthur or Henry.

I must say, baby Brookbanks sure is taking his or her sweet time to get here. One day when we are not thinking about it, he she makes it's appearance. I wish them the best for their future.

Arthur always comes up in Royal lists for boys. Pippa's son is Arthur, so I just can't see it. And if they name a son Henry the media will start chorusing that he was named for Harry, as a signal of support, or something.

Alice was the name of a daughter of Queen Victoria so Fergie would probably be all for it, but would Eugenie go for a name associated with 19th century royals, like herself and Beatrice, thereby cementing a York family trend?

Victoria's daughter Alice had a granddaughter also named Alice and that second Alice is Eugenie's great-grandmother - being Philip's mother. This is more than just a name associated with a daughter of Queen Victoria but a direct family name and a way to honour Philip.

Yes of course, but Alice came originally into the BRF in the 1840s as a result of Queen Victoria remembering Lord Melbourne's fondness for the name. A sprinkling of Alices among Queen V's grandchildren and greatgrandchildren was the result.

We will have to see if Eugenie calls a daughter Alice. Perhaps she will, as it has been a quite popular name among the aristocracy for ages. However, it would still follow the continuation of 19th century Royal names among the Yorks, if she does.

Just because Queen Victoria's daughter was the first Alice, in no means would suggest that being the reason they chose the name.

Its not like Eugenie would say 'Yes it would be nice to honor grandpa's mother, but I really just can't allow the name to follow the York tradition'.

Its like suggesting if she named a son Philip, that be must be named after the husband of Mary I as he was the first Philip in the royal family. Or that George was chosen as an honor to George I and not to the queen's father.

I agree though I don't see Arthur. Arthur and Alice are always brought up for royal babies as top picks.

Is the baby though? All we were told was the baby was coming early in the year. That could easily be any time in February. Honestly any time before spring hits in March. We could have a wait on our hands.

Well, as an Alice, I wouldn't mind!

I can actually see it as quite a likely choice for Eugenie and Jack, if they follow their mother's pattern of wanting to use Victorian names.

In that same article it stated that the Brooksbanks were living at Frogmore Cottage, whereas I thought they had moved in briefly and moved right back out again. Does anyone know where they actually are living and plan to continue living once they are a family of three?
