Oh, he was definitely covering when he added 'or Jackie', but I don't infer anything from it really. He was probably just caught up in his excitement over the goal.

Princess Jacqueline? It would sound original!

Right about now, I would hazard the guess that Kate is walking around muttering "I'm going to name you Late For Dinner" and wishing something would start happening.

Those last few days of waiting seem like months.

I think she would like the baby to wait till the end of Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (William is occupied for now).

John is not fashionable, being just outside the top 100 names, but they could choose it as a formal name while calling him Jack (as happened with Henry/Harry).
Although in general I'm not superstitious, even in the Spencer family the name was unlucky recently. And though Diana's father was called Johnnie, his first name was actually Edward.

I know Diana's father's first name was Edward, but the name he used was John. If I wanted to name a child in remembrance of someone, I would give them the name they were known by.

As for "recently" - it was nearly 60 years ago!

Perhaps being further from the throne allows for something different :)

Although I do see that the British royals tend towards tradition so maybe not

Not only the British, but also the Middletons seem to have a penchant for royal names. There's Catherine Elizabeth, Phillippa Charlotte, and James William.
All names used by royalty.

Well, it’s almost time! I am hoping that Baby Cambridge no. 3 arrives onQueen Elizabeth’s 92nd birthday.

For a girl, my perfect choice would be: Cecilia Elizabeth Rose. A trifecta tribute to QE2 (grandmother, mother/self, sister).

For a boy, David Michael Philip (The Queen Mother’s beloved little brother, Catherine’s father, William’s grandfather).

"Princess Cecilia" is too much of a tongue twister.

I don't expect them to use Elizabeth twice (both for Charlotte and for Cambridge #3) - probably not even if born on her birthday. Calling a son 'Phillip' would be a great way to honor the queen as well :)

Or Alexandra or Mary, the queen’s middle names.

Philip's 'favourite' sister was Cecilie so not to hard to say at all.

Yes, I considered that as well: I would prefer Mary in that case as George already has Alexander as one of his middle names. So, it would still be a repeat in my book.

Hoping no Alexandra, love the name, but already used Alexander.

I do think if the baby is born April 21st, we will see a Mary. Or if a boy, Philip. Both honor to the Queen.

Princess Mary Alice Valerie of Cambridge

Prince Philip Albert Michael of Cambridge

I really do hope the baby is born any other day though. He or she shouldn't have to share a birthday with the queen. Will never have their own day until the queen passes away.

April isn't just a popular birth month now. It was in time as well.

Alice and Mary would be fitting for April 25. Mary, Countess Harewood, and George III's daughter Mary were born on that day. And Victoria's daughter Alice as well.

If it's a girl and they pick Mary as a middle name; all three children have one of the queen's names (or a male variant)... Would be a nice nod.

I just like the name.


I can't think of a boy name that I like except Philip, and I hope Zara will have a boy.
