Frederick William Philip
Frederick Michael William
Frederick David Arthur

I don’t understand that either.

Henry is more of a possibility because everyone has always known William's brother as Harry. So in practical terms of everyday use, Henry would be a different name if they stuck to calling him Henry.

I think William and Michael as middle names and either Philip or Arthur as a first name.

My little boy is Albert so hoping it's not that!

final guesses:

Henry Philip James
Frederick Philip James
maybe sub Michael in there
Henry Arthur James??
I feel since Henry and Harry sound different enough they won't be confusing.

Was looking at Hanoverian names and found Augusta (for girls), laughed a bit at the slight (nil) chance they'd name him August--somewhat obscure for boys nowadays, but my good friend has a son named August x

How long did we wait for the name announcing for George and Charlotte? I don't remember already.

Two days for both George and Charlotte.

I'm guessing he will be named Prince Frederick Philip Charles of Cambridge.

I'm thinking we might see a Prince Frederick Arthur Michael or maybe a Prince Frederick Arthur Philip.

I had a whole list of names I thought might be possibilities but now that he's here and the more I think about it, I really think it'll be Frederick for the first name.

Why has Frederick suddenly become such a popular bet ? Any inside information perhaps ?

Anyway, it doesn’t sound English enough to me. Arthur would be nicer.

Nicholas Philip Michael
H.R.H. Prince Nicholas of Cambridge sounds very good to me.

I’m thinking Arthur.

Not sure about his middle names.

I like the idea of Thomas as well but I don’t think they’re gonna go with that.

I can't speak for others but Frederick was always on my short list of possibilities. I think for me it's because it's a very well-used Hanoverian name and that's what they've used so far with George and Charlotte. That's not to say that they couldn't use Nicholas or Thomas or anything else they might like but in my mind Frederick just goes well with George and Charlotte in a way that the others don't. Just my two cents but I suspect that might be others thinking as well.

I also think it's more probable to give this name to eventual Harry and Meghan's son (not necessarily as the first name).

That is my feeling as well. That is the same rationale I had for predicting Amelia if this baby had been a girl. Both are distinctively Hanoverian royal names, go nicely with George and Charlotte, and are a bit on-trend.

Sorry folks but I haven't been able to read all of the posts in this thread, so I may have missed a previous discussion on this.
Do we really think that Henry or James are strong contenders, since they are the given names of 2 close relations of the Duke of Cambridge, and therefore the new Prince?

#

And James is also the name of 2 uncles of the new Prince so it could be confusing if that would be the first name.

All I know is, if they pick Arthur or Albert, I will think about Diana saying: No, thank you!

What does Diana have to do with names Arthur or Albert?
Maybe she didn't like them, but she is dead now; the main decision belongs to William and Catherine.
