I don't think Benjamin is either popular enough, nor have any royal or family connection for William and Kate. It would be even more out there then Estelle, Estelle there was at least a family connection.

I voted for Alice or Victoria in case it is a girl because most other conventional alternatives (Anne, Louise, Beatrice, Elizabeth, etc.) are already in use by living RF members and other regal names that are still available such as Mary or Margaret sound too plain to me (please, it's just my personal opinion!) . However, since William and Kate went back to the Hanoverians with Charlotte, maybe they could do it again and pick Adelaide as a possible name for their new baby girl.

Why not Augusta?

While Augusta and Adelaide are lovely names, really love Adelaide, I don't think they are 'trendy' enough for William and Kate. They seem to have chosen safe but still on trend royal names for their first two. Neither name even makes the top 1000 baby names.

Just like George and Charlotte, as a first name, I don't think they will stray from the predictable.

I'm not convinced about David: it's too closely associated with the Duke of Windsor. I'd love them to choose Victoria for a girl: it's time for another Princess Victoria! Or Alice.

I expect Victoria to be 'reserved' for a future queen; so probably if George's first child is a girl

Or at least 1st daughter. I always thought if they used Victoria, as a first name, it would have been for Charlotte.

So is Edward, but it has been used. Princess Margaret's son is David. I'd not rule it out.

Using it as a middle name is different. (Not ruling it out by any means).

David AJ was named to honor the queen mother's only younger sibling. David Bowes-Lyon died when Margaret was over seven months pregnant with her son (he died September 13, David was born November 3).


But since we have seen Edward used, I don't rule out David any more either.

My vote is for

Arthur Charles Michael- for both fathers
Arthur Phillip Henry- for the grandfather and uncle
Arthur Andrew Michael- for St. Andrew's where they met and her father


Alice Victoria Carol- for the lineage and her mother
Alice Victoria Phillipa- lineage and her aunt

How about the name Madeline?

M - Margaret, Mary, May, Middleton
A - Alice, Adelaide, Anne,
D - David
E - Elizabeth, Eleanor, Edward
L - Louise, Louis, Leopold,
E - Any E not listed above
I - Isabelle
N - Nicholas
E - More E names.

Silly idea eh?

Very creative idea Osipi! I think they would most likely spell Madeline as Madeleine though; as that is how Madeleine of Sweden spells it and I generally think Madeleine is the more common spelling in the UK (I could be wrong on that though, as I'm basing it on the fact that as a Brit I've met more Madeleines than Madelines). Princess Madeleine of Cambridge does have a nice ring to it but I still think it's quite unlikely as the Cambridges seem to like more direct ways to honour relatives. A fun thought though!

Since I don't know of any relations called Madeleine, unless they really like the name I would say very unlikely.

They've already used Diana's name for Charlotte.

I seriously doubt that they'd give a second daughter the exact same middle names as they did Charlotte. I think Elizabeth Diana is out.
