I can’t see Harry loading Diana, with all its history and expectations, on to a daughter. I can see it as a middle name, but am really opting for something short, snappy (like Archie with two syllables) and modern.

Here's a little history on the name "Dior." Speaking from personal experience, this is a name that I've read off at least two classroom attendance lists as a substitute teacher. I've not yet encountered "Diorama" yet, but then again I never thought I'd meet a second grade boy named "Vinyl." Yes it's pronounced the same way when discussing vinyl flooring options at the local home improvement center.

Dior as a girl's name is of French origin. Dior is related to the surname D'Or meaning "golden".

Honestly, I can, especially after watching the interview. I think he very much identifies with his mother as the much-maligned, cast-out member of the BRF.

Royals never lower themselves to naming children after family members. Its so Hollywood of them to want to cash in on by honoring his mother.
It was unfair of me to say that naming this child after his mother is "riding a money train for all its worth." Perhaps the better way to express my thought on it is that naming this baby Diana is like catnip. It's the association, the idea that they, too, have been woefully mistreated by the BRF, that they want, and by naming the baby Diana, they'll keep that idea in people's minds, at least subconsciously, especially to their main audience now, the American public.

I'd like to think they won't name her Diana, but I feel like Harry is far from over the trauma of her death, and is borderline obsessed with her.

I don't think saddling the little girl with lifelong comparisons with her late grandmother would be wise, but...I suspect they'll do it anyway, at Harry's insistence.

I'll be perfectly happy to be wrong. :)

Not sure. they could have given Archie her second name.. Francis fro Frances and they didnt. Its hard to say what mood they'll be in when it comes to naming their new child...

I think they would go either way, totally unexpected (a name we never thought of in our minds) or predictable (Diana...).

I agree with @Denville. It will depend on their mood...

Would Joy be considered inappropriate?

My suggestion for today is Frankie Margaux,

Frankie is an up and coming name, and is a version of Frances which is Diana's middle name, and her Mum's first name.
Margaux is a French version of Margot and ultimately Meghan and Margaret.

I hate abbreviations of names being given as names, personally. Archie is really short for Archibald.. which is a long ugly name.. so I can understand them using it.. but Frances isn't that long or unattractive...

I doubt it.
Among the Queen's descendants there's already a Zara, Isla, Savannah; "Joy" doesn't mean anything unsuitable (not a dirty word or anything), H&M are not working royals, so i think they can call their daughter whatever they want.

I think they will choose an African-American girl name as first name (my personal guess is Aisha). The second name might well be something like Joy or Hope, which are also popular girl names in America.

That's what I thought too....

Anyway with the comic strip, inexplicable choice of "Archie" as precedent, there is no way to predict what the new baby will be called.

I hope for the best.

Archie isn't unknown here in the UK, its quite popular among upper and middle class...in recent years. but now that they have moved ot the US, they may go for a more American type name...

But it sure is fun trying to guess. It does add a bit of humour to see what others think the name could be. I just wish other people would not criticise possible name choices since it is only guesses. No one has to like them, just accept that maybe the baby might be called ABC or XYZ. The chances of actually guessing the right name is about as good as winning the Lottery. Lets just enjoy this time.

With Harry yes, its hard to imagine what they might come up with,.. but royal names are usually fairly predictable.. so chances of guessing right are quite good. .I've guessed three or 4 rightly over teh years, tho' Will and Kate did surprise me with Louis...

That's like saying many White Americans identify as Buddhist because they are known to practice yoga.

Most African Americans are Christian and identify as such.
