We have all had a lot of fun try to guess names for the royal baby. To finish off how about some suggestions on WHAT NOT to call the little one. By the way, these are all English and Scottish names belonging to monarchs and consorts.

Baby girl Eadgyth Berengeria Ingibiorg Euphemia
Baby boy Ethelred Cerdic Guildford Macbeth.

I'd say anything starting with an S is a big no no

The legal last name would be Mountbatten-Windsor I think, not Sussex.

One thing we can be 99.9% sure of is that if the child is a girl, she will *not* be named Samantha.

Barack Oliver Dwayne Idi, Baron Kilkeel (or Earl of Dumbarton ??? How do Harry's titles work?)
Lady Sissy Samantha Cecilia Wallis of Sussex

Titles go from most senior down. If Harry has a son his son would be Earl Dumbarton. A grandson would be Baron Kilkeel.

I would highly doubt Wallis would be in there!

My Guesses are:

~ Lady Amelia Frances Elizabeth Mountbatten-Windsor

This has been a fun idea.
It's interesting seeing old monarch and consorts' names.

Based on tongue twister tones, I guess also these would be out ..
Martin Barton Arnold Arthur Earl of Dumbarton
Lady Theresa May Mary Winsome Mountbatten Windsor
Lady Liberty Louise Loyce Leonora Mountbatton Windsor - Little Liberty Lou for short.

Countessmeout, thank you for the title explanation.
Might I ask, does Harry have a title that he uses just for when he is in Scotland?

As far as celebrity names go, his kids aren't too bad. Ok Petal, River and Buddy are, but Poppy and Daisy are quite cute and popular names. They would fit right in with many of the upper crust baby names.

Not that I think they will go way out of the box but still.

Ok, you've got a point there, but i thought of their full names:
Poppy Honey Rosie
Daisy Boo Pamela
Petal Blossom Rainbow
Buddy Bear Maurice
River Rocket Blue Dallas


Rosie in itself i think is cute though, i'd like that for the baby if i wasn't stuck on Doriana

Alright. This may be the hardest lol. The Cambridges were easy because we know they prefer more traditional names and they had to follow more rules when it came to naming their children. The Sussex' are different, they arent as limited. Also, enlight of the recent announcement of their choice to skip the public showing of the baby, i highly doubt the Queen will issue letters making the baby a HRH. Heres my guess.

Lord Augustus Henry Philip Charles, Earl of Dumbarton
Lady Alexandra Doria Diana Victoria Mountbatten Windsor

Guys this is was so hard lol.

Isn't Meghan's actual first name Rachel? Maybe that will be a name for a girl.


I can see them steering clear of Diana - William and Kate used it for a middle name for Charlotte. Instead I think using Frances or Spencer would be nice middle names

Now that you mention it, I'd love to see Boedicia as a middle name for a BRF girl. Specifically as a middle name only, though! A reference to someone really kickass and strong from their tradition, but not to the point of being saddled with it every day.

It would be interesting - and humorous - to see how badly "Boudicca" would be mis-pronounced. For a long time, it was spelled "Boadicea" (or something like it) and pronounced "BOW-ah-di-say-a" when in fact the Iceni name is now more correctly spelled as "Boudicca" (meaning "Victory") and pronounced "BOO-di-kah." Many news outlets in the US still can't pronounced Eugenie's name correctly - even after showing the vows at her wedding and hearing HER pronounce her name! (Instead of the correct "YOO -zha-nee" it's still usually "Yoo-JEEN-ee") And don't even get me started on Prince Louis...
