There are several male names in the Bible that could be used for a Prince: Jacob, Joseph, Paul, Mark, Timothy.

in the biblical theme: although i'm notoriously bad at guessing babynames i would bet money on them not using "Judas"

i'd also sooner expect a name with royal history than biblical history

That is correct. Baby Sussex is a long way down the line of succession, is unlikely to be an HRH at birth, and will probably have a career independent of the BRF. In these circumstances, if the parents so choose, they could well have American names honouring the mother's heritage. It was in this context, I have suggested Prentice or Madison as potential names.

Or Abraham, after Biblical Patriarch and Abraham Lincoln, U.S. President "The Great Emancipator"

I think Abraham is too old-fashioned and too much of a mouthful. You might as well say Ezekiel or Absalom, which also are old-fashioned. However, Meghan's first name is biblical: Rachel. So they could choose one of the names as Biblical but call the child by a nickname, such as Zeke, etc.

I'm still thinking the baby will be a girl, so I haven't thought much about boys names. As mentioned already, Timothy, Mark, Paul, Joseph, or perhaps Solomon (as in Song of, which verses they liked and used at their wedding) are all biblical possibilities.

I do think that the baby will be a girl but for the sake of discussion, all the male members of the royal family are named after family members/previous
Charles, William, Harry/Henry. Edward, James and George are named of former British kings.
Peter Philips, Prince Andrew and baby Louis are only male members who arent named after a king.

Boith Prince Andrew and Prince Louis bear the names of former kings:


Andrew Albert Christian Edward

Louis Arthur Charles

How many Americans do you know have the name Prentice? Because this American doesn't and it's an odd and rare name for an American.

Prince Edward's daughter Louise was 8th in line at the time of her birth and she has very regal names (Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary Mountbatten-Windsor).

Prentice - really?

However while they mgith put in an American sounding name as a second or third, I can't see them giving one as a first name..
If we were talking names like Philip and Charles I would agree. Close family members that it wouldn't be uncommon if they wanted to honor. But Alexander is a vague reference to Queen Victoria. And if they wanted to honor the queen's father, they could easily use Albert instead, his actual name. There are dozens of royal names to choose from without reusing two of George's three names. I also don't see them not honoring Meghan's family at all.

Funnily, I do know an American named Prentice, and he is from Houston, Texas.

It's entirely the choice of the parents. This thread is really about suggestions, so you no need to roll over

It's definitely a very Texas sounding name. But regardless, quite uncommon in US. Yea, don't see that for Meghan and Harry.

I thought Prentice sounded more Ivy League prep school than Texas.

More like Connecticut snob. I'm sorry, but I LOLd at the thought of Harry and Meghan naming their son Prentice.

New England rather than Upper East Side.
But probably an unlikely name for the Duke of Sussex's child.

I wouldn't rule out the South. There are some pretty pretentious names get used in the South at times. Although, my guess would be more Southwest than Southeast.
