As for godparents, I'll pick a few for each gender and let them be trimmed down however it goes:

Men: Charlie Van Straubenzee, Prince Seesio, Markus Anderson, Male Spencer cousin, Jake Warren
Women: Lindsey Jill Roth, Jessica Mulroney, Princess Eugenie, Benita Litt, a Spencer Cousin

As for godparents...I'd never be able to guess them all but I think Princess Eugenie is a fairly safe bet. For some reason or other I don't really see them going the way of the Cambridges and avoiding siblings or spouses of siblings and I really wouldn't be all that surprised to see Catherine asked. I also wouldn't be a bit surprised to see Prince Seesio asked and certainly a cousin on the Spencer side. As for Meghan's friends...possibly Jessica Mulroney or Benita Litt.
This one will never make the cut. Ever heard of Oliver Cromwell and what he did to King Charles I

As of yet i never guessed a royal baby name correct, but i'm still giving it a go:

i think Harry and Meghan are not tradtionally with regards to names (basing that opinion on the fact that they didn't use their full names in their wedding ceremony), so i think there may be some twist like "Charlie" or "Frankie" for a girl

I don't think that it is John or Oliver due dark history of the names.


Probably it will be some royal sounding name but not very commonly used.


And for gitl there will be name Diana altough not necessarility as first name. But I am not very good with royal names. With British royals I guessed correctly only George's first name and was quiet close with Charlotte.

Yeah, I am thinking that John or Oliver are not options for the reasons stated above.

I am also thinking for a boy the name Arthur, Charles and/or Alexander are out since either George and Louis have it in their names.


If a girl, Doria, Diana and/or Frances will in there some where.
If a boy, Phillip will be in there somewhere.

I don't think they'll go a very different road. Not as traditional as Kate and William (though the names of their children have certainly regained popularity the last decade or so), but I think Zara and Peter have proven that names can be off the beaten track (the same old names used in the family) without having the name feel like it's part of an entirely different family.

Gotta think about this one a little more.

I know things are shaky right now with that family but I don't think that Meghan would ever forget or discount or stop loving her father and would want that reflected in naming their first child.

Meghan just doesn't come across to me as one that would carry grudges. Besides, they shed horribly.
does not seem to me that she's on any kind of good terms with her father. What about the No comment, comment about whether he knew about the baby? I think that he has not been told, and relations are frosty...

Things are for sure frosty currently and Meghan is handling it as she sees fit. However, its just my opinion that she would still honor her father in her grandson's name. She may not like or approve of her father's behavior but I do honestly think that she still loves him. That's just me though and I've yet to get a royal baby's predicted right.

We'll see. If its a boy, they might honor Doria and call the son Dorian. Dorian Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton has a nice ring to it.

Im sure she has some feeling for him, but she didn't go to see him when she got engaged.. and it seems clear now that he's alienated from her.
And the surname woudlnt be Sussex realy.. Their children may use Sussex as a surname.. but the official surname is Mountbatten Windsor...
I can't see the RF going in for a name like Dorian whch sounds like a girl's name or worse still Dorian Grey

You're absolutely right where the surname would be Mountbatten-Windsor. Guess I need a bit more caffeine in my system today or brain boosters. Mondays are always sluggish for me.

I guess the name Dorian is a unisex name. I seriously doubt they'd use it but you never know.

Maybe, maybe not. Yes, as a historian I've certainly heard of Cromwell. And while I have my doubts, too, in some ways I wouldn't be terribly surprised. I think sometimes that we make a bigger deal of these things than the Queen/RF does and that given how much time has passed since Cromwell was an issue it may be that she's fine with a bit of a shakeup in royal names. My suggestions were simply guesses, just like everyone else's suggestions and we'll all just have to wait and see what happens when the baby arrives.

For a girl: Keeya, Masego, Naledi, Onnalenna, Sethunya, or Sylvanella - all Botswanian girl names with a beautiful meaning. Princess Sethunya of Sussex sounds cute.



With a boy I think they will start with Charles or Francis or Philip. As an African name I could imagine Ditiro, Kagiso, Kenosi, Mykel or many other nice names.

I like the idea of Marina for a girl, as it is the same name as Doria - Marina from Latin, Doria from Greek but both meaning "From the sea"

I would think that Dorian is the male name and Dorien is a female version. No, honestly can't see it.. Oscar Wilde and all that? Mind you I guessed quite wrong about Louis... but I still can't see a Pr John or a Prince Oliver.. or a very American sounding name..

People like the Phillipses can call their children unsual names, but I doubt if Harry and Megahn would feel they could...

As to be expected given his actions at the beginning of the Duchess' pregnancy.

Don't know about names.

But my hunch is a girl, and I would think Mark Dyer (whose son is also Harry's godson), Tiggy, Jessica, Benita, Lindsay, Charlie van Straubenzee, and possibly Markus Anderson for godparents.

I don’t think there’s a snowball’s chance that she would include her father’s name or that the royal family would permit her to do so.

Diana might be a good bet for a first name for a daughter. Prince Harry is probably brave enough to do it. Certainly, it will be a middle name.

Doubt the royal family will say she can't name her child after her father if she wishes. I just don't see her wishing to right now.

For name, they could include of their mother's names but Charlette already had Diana in her name. Some names suggestion for a future princess, Amelia, Cynthia, Clarice, Veronica, Victoria
