Wouldn't that be something? They announce the pregnancy when they land in Sydney, Australia and then decide to name their first born daughter Sydney. Our friends Down Under would be over the moon with that and the crowds would be even larger should Harry and Meghan and family pay another visit to Australia in the future.

Adelaide is indeed a beautiful name for a girl, with a nickname of Addy.

When did Harry supposedly say this about the name?

I think it's a little boy.

However, as a previous poster mentioned, I also wondered if they'd have the genetic testing done you can have before 12 weeks due to her age and/or personal preference. If so, they'd already know unless they chose to keep the sex unknown. I am still saying boy but Harry's comment threw me a little, I admit, haha. I also heard him tell a couple people they didn't know if it was a boy or girl yet but THAT I could see him just saying. The "So do I!" is what confused my certainty that it's a boy.

I am HORRIBLE with names and never ever guess even remotely right but I suppose it's all in good fun!

Girl: Eleanor Frances Elizabeth

Boy: Philip Henry David

Godparents: I have no idea other than WHO introduced them?! Because if I were them I'd expect to be first on the list, haha. :P

Just because an amnio was done, it doesn’t mean they know the gender. They can choose not to find out. I don’t know about UK, but in US, if parents choose not to find out, they won’t even put it in the file to prevent telling the parents by accident.

Yes. That is what I said up above - that they may not have chosen to find the sex out even if they did have genetic testing performed.

The most plausible I've heard is Violet von Westenholz. She was at the wedding, but seated in the Nave instead of with Markus Anderson and the likes in Quire. Although, it could mean nothing since seats were so limited. Even the Dyers and Inskips sat in the Nave.

or a current trend of 2 names = a truncated name - like Ivy Mulroney - her real name is Isabel Veronica =IV = Ivy.

Jenna Bush Hager's daughter is Margaret Laura for the 2 grandmothers and they call her Mila

Diana Doria = DD - Didi

or

Doria Diana = Dodi - but ... uhhh no.

It seems to be pretty much accepted by most she is. While I think they appreciate she introduced them, not sure she is close enough to either to be assured a godparent role. They both have much closer friends and his family.

I have to do this. Or Dioria. And now I can't quit laughing. People who pun are just the worst, and I admit it completely in this case.

So much interesting conversation here.

I like the chances of Victoria for a girl. The Doris/Victoria is cool. Sydney is still a boys' name mostly even though it was trendy for American girls a few years ago. (Like Charlie is right now) I don't predict boys' names for a girl.
I think that as soon as Charles becomes King the HRH will apply to any child of Harry's as is the rule now.
Scottish names are pretty:

Victoria Skye Isobel Margaret and Charles Alistair Stuart Albert
Lucy Victoria Mary Elspeth and Hamish David Taffy Malcolm
Heather Alison Catriona Meg and Angus Lachlan Alexander Henry

i guess depends on the country. Sydney is far more common for a girl for the past 30 years.

If we see any Aussie name I don't see anything beyond Victoria or Adelaide.

I don't think they are going to go off the track for Taffy and such. There are plenty of lovely Scottush royal names without going into the Outlander books.

Another name I have been thinking about for a boy is Edward or David because of the obvious parallels between King Edward and Harry's choice of partner - divorced American - and how it has come full circle. I know the circumstances are different with Prince Harry not being the reigning monarch, but the Queen saw what effect NOT allowing that marriage had on her life, she was more accepting of it with her grandson in her later years. So to honour the Queen's favourite Uncle and parallel narrative, I like the combo of:

Edward Charles Philip Thomas

And I still like for a girl:

Victoria Elizabeth Margaret Diana

Let me get this straight. You think that it is a good idea to name the child of a bi-racial woman after someone who was a known racist? And I think the last thing that Harry and Meghan would want is to have their child/children named after an 'American divorcee' connection!

There are no 'safe' names...you can always find something negative about a name. Let them name their child whatever they want.

The difference between Edwards VIII and Harry’s wives end at the American divorcee. Could not be more different as people.
