I wouldn’t rule out Nicole for that reason, also I took from August’s name that they prefer the child to have their own first name. Nicole would therefore be a possibility for a first name with a nod to Jack’s mother, leaving two other family members to be honoured with the other names.
I agree, Eliza is more similar to Elizabeth than Lilibet. She’s Lilli. Eliza could still happen though Peter has used Isla - Savannah and Sienna are similar in the same sort of way.
If Eugenie and Jack like the name Lizzy, I think Eliza would be the given name as it’s more traditional than that, if not as traditional as some.
I am not keen on reusing a name that a sibling already has (sorry William and Catherine with Louis when it’s one of George’s middle names and HM & Philip using Edward when Andrew already had it) so I hope they’ll use Stamp rather than using Hawke again.
