Archie has been popular in the UK for many years, but of course it is out for Eugenie and Jack, as will be Camilla, Boris and Wilfred (most are known as Wilf.) I used to know a couple of Ottilies in the UK but I do think it's unknown outside Britain.

I wouldn't be surprised if they choose a late Victorian name like Ivy or Ida though, as these names are very in at the moment.

I've heard of the name Ottilie and I quite like it, but it's not popular or used much at all where I live. I first came across it online. I agree that it's unlikely Eugenie and Jack will use Ottilie.

I think they'll either go for the classic route or an unconventional route (for the royals anyway) like the Tindalls and Phillips did.

Nobody guessed Beatrice or Eugenie! I wish someone'd choose Victoria: it's a shame that the name's died out in the British Royal Family, except as a middle name.
It means fatherland and is a feminne version of Otto. But I cant' quite see it being used. Mind you its a bit better than Wilfed.

The telegraph's most popular names were based off of baby announcements printed in their paper. Less 600 babies were announced in 2019. 9 babies were named Ottilie.

If they choose a name from the 'most popular baby names' list I feel pretty comfortable thinking it will be the actual most popular babies name list. And something like Olivia if they want an O name.

I am more and more leaning towards them going with a classic name. One that has come back into popularity in recent years. Don't see anyhting like Ida though.

Would it normally be the upper class that would print baby announcement in The Telegraph? If so, that might be a rather good indication on what they might fancy.

A lot of older names are back in fashion. It'd be nice if they chose Alice, because I think Prince Philip's mother deserves recognition. Others which are now "in" are Ivy, Edith (now there's a very old royal name!), Hanoverian names such as Amelia, Sophia (too like Sophie?), and Isabella.

Thereis a Lady Amelia Windsor.. and Fred Windsor had a daughter a couple of years ago who's called Isabella... so not sure about them...I think they try to find something that isn't in use already.

I’d like to see either of these names for a girl - Victoria, Alice, Alexandra, Helena, Eleanor

For a boy- Daniel, Alexander, Nicholas, Philip, Oliver, Nathan

I know some names have no royal provenance, but they’re all fairly traditional names.
