I know, but I am still stunned at the sloppy, lazy, incompetent journalism. OK, with the Internet and social media the requirements of education are not so rigid or not even required. But how hard would it have been to check the girl's names? The guys are easier because the names of all the Kings etc. down through history are well known.

For a daughter the name could be Rosalind Cecilia Caroline. This is in honor of Rosalind Cecilia Caroline Hamilton, Duchess of Abercorn, a great-grandmother of Princess Diana.

I don't see why they would use her full name. If they chose to honor her, one name would be plenty.

Why would it be used at all? Its generally thought to be "bad luck" by the RF.. and as has been pointed out it is also the name of Diana's liltte brother who died.. so its not at all likel to be used
Older brother, John Spencer died in 1960, a year before Diana was born.

Quote:
Or the Gaelic/Irish equivalent of Sean. Or the Spanish Juan. Or the French Jean. Or the German Johann. The possibilities are endless.
Maybe the Gaelic or Scottish, at least there is a link. But why would they use a Spanish or German version? And Jean is a female name in the UK.

For a son Gerald could be used as a middle name.

I like some of your suggestions, however, I doubt that the Sussex baby will receive more than three given names.

Not sure they are close enough to the Lascelles to choose the name of the current Earl's Uncle as a middle name.

If it was just a random choice name and not for Gerald Lascelles. Well I guess there are thousands of names they 'could' use in the baby name books

Cute. And Gerald is cute too.
Most names are acceptable and attractive though guessing what these two will actually call their child, taking the royal and family factors into account, is quite like gambling...in a non costly kind of way.

I think a Prince Barry would be a kind, jolly, rollicking chap, with a very wide vocabulary and artistic tendencies.
A Prince Gerald, I see as a Knightly fellow who does good and brave works; a daylight Robin Hood on horseback.

Are you going for the "most posts in any forum" award by naming one name per post

It's 1.25am here & I've just woken up from a dream. Apparently, Meghan has had the baby & she's asked us (yes those of us on this forum) to choose the baby's names. We have to do it by nominating & voting for our top 3 names. I think the heavy responsibility woke me up.

(If I can get back to the dream, I'll try & find out if it's a boy or girl.)

I'll enter my choice for a girl's name now. We've been calling the child Baby Sussex for so long now, it'd be practical and logical that if its a girl, she'll be called "Bebe". And no, I do not see "Bubba" for a boy at all.

Osipi, How about calling Baby Sussex "Boyd" if he is a boy?
