But I highly doubt they will "branch out" - if older son and daughter have names given previously in the British Royal family (Six Kings Georges, Queen Charlotte - wife of the Third One, Princess Charlotte - daughter of the fourth one; George III also had a daughter named Charlotte) their brother will probably not stand out from his siblings.

Three Charlottes connected with Georges, so:

Frederick (firstborn son of George II, Prince of Wales, second son of George III,)
Other sons of George III were named: Edward (I doubt it), Ernest, Augustus, Adolphus (HIGHLY doubt it), Octavius, Alfred.
With sons of George V - left names: Albert, Henry, John.

And I'm out of guesses.
Oh, I forgot about Thomas, Patrick and Mathew, really pretty names for a prince, especially Prince Thomas.

Reposting my December prediction below.

I believe we can get fairly close in our prediction by studying the naming patterns of members of the current House of Windsor. Whether boy or girl names (generally) follow the below pattern.

Given name = Traditional Hanoverian Name
Middle names = honor a Hanoverian, Saxon or Montbatten ancestor.

This naming pattern is not 100% true to all members but generally works.

We can rule out combinations of George Alexander Louis because they are already being used by William & Kate's first son. Therefore, my prediction is:

Boy ~ Edward Arthur Phillip

And by the way, this new prince is also now a strong candidate to be a "future" Duke of York.

We will all find out likely on Wednesday morning.

I'm still rooting for Prince Philip Henry James of Cambridge

However, if Zara is having a boy and asked William not to use that name, I'm fine with them picking a different one (although Philip sounds better next to George and Charlotte than as a little brother of Mia).

I partially agree. I don't think his first name will be Arthur but one of his middle name certainly could be as his father is William Arthur Phillip Louis and his grandfather is Charles Philip Arthur George. Not too much of a stretch to predict Arthur as a middle name.

I doubt we will see random, non British royal names, like Mathew or Dominic. It seems the couple prefers very classic royal names.

I have seen Nicholas mentioned a few times. I am not sure Philip was all that close to his Greek Uncles was he? Not sure that William and Kate would name a son for Philip's uncles, Christopher or Nicholas. Lord Nicholas is different, his father was a grandson of Prince Nicholas.

I know its St George's day but I hope they don't reuse names. It is also Shakespeare's birthday so I hope we see a nod to the bard/Dad.

Prince Frederick William Michael of Cambridge

Prince Philip William Michael of Cambridge

Prince Thomas Michael William of Cambridge

Prince Arthur Philip William of Cambridge

I’m not sure why James is considered likely when it’s the name of Prince Edward’s son and the child’s uncle. They aren’t likely to reuse the name. Likewise with Henry.

More likely then Charles (Charlotte and Charles) but agreed, James is highly unlikely as a first name. Slight chance as a middle if they decided to honor his Uncles. But only slightly more.
