I think that Diana is a lovely name but I would not burden a child with that legacy. Hope they use it as a middle name and come up with something else.

My girls are Elizabeth (Liz) and Katherine . Guess we know one name that’s not on the table: Catherine /Katherine / Kathryn.

I won't be one bit surprised if the world is shocked to its core as Harry and Meghan name their daughter Veronica. Ronnie for short. Archie and Veronica do go well together to a lot of American ears.

Or better yet, Edith. Archie and Edith. Now I hear Archie yelling at his sister "Get me a (root) beer, Edith!"

Archie is an upper class name, so I think they'll pick something similar that is popular now like Daphne, Esme, Bella

I can't see that a name they choose will be all that popular in itself. I think they'll go for an American type name rather than a British royal name... Archie Harrison was unusual but still Archie was a well liked upper class name in the past which had mode something of a comeback. but that was wehn they were living in the UK - Now I think it will be some name that is well liked in California.. perhaps iwth Elizabeth tagged on.

Before Archie’s birth I read they had Allegra picked out for a girl. This is the type of name I can see them going for Allegra Diana or Elizabeth or similar Or maybe Allegra Philippa. I also would not be surprised with Diana.

Hollywood, which they are now, likes “statement” names rather than traditional.

maybe, but I think that story probably has its origins in a vaguely sourced story that Diana wanted a daughter and wanted to call her Allegra. So its probably a filler story based on this rumour. Its really hard to call, as they have not stuck to traditionally patterns in any way, so I doubt if they'll do it with this baby. Possibly they'll give Diana as a second name.

Can you see Ruth being used in honor of Princess Diana's grandmother Ruth, Lady Fermoy?

With the Sussex’s it’s hard to predict anything.
But I won’t be surprised if Oprah or Gayle King become a godparents for their child

We probably won't get to know whoever they are. Remember how they refused to name the godparents of the first child?

The way everyone assumed Serena and Clooney would be for Archie?

And as far as I know, the press seems relatively sure that Tiggy Pettifer, Mark Dyer and Charlie van Straubenzee are among Archie's godparents...

But that was when they lived in the UK and were having a traditional royal christening. Now they are free agents...

I hardly think that Charlie, Twiggy and Mark were forced choices just because Harry and Meghan were working royals and living in the UK! All three of them had known Harry since childhood. I believe that a couple of Meghan’s friends (whom she had known since her University days and aren’t in show business) may also have been godparents to Archie, and I’m sure it will be the same this time. I can’t see either Meghan or Harry picking Oprah or Gayle King as godmothers.

I thought that was exactly what they were bashed for not having?

ETA: Well... one of the things they were bashed for not having.

no they were criticised for refusing to say who the godparents were.. though it is public information and most other royals have named them...

I'm pretty sure the subject of his godparents was not the extent of the criticism. IIRC people were generally just annoyed they didn't do it the Cambridge way. Which is fairly silly considering there was virtually no difference between Archie's and, say, Lena's christenings.

(Besides, if it's public information, what's the issue?)

One of the multitude of things the Sussexes were criticised for by the tabloids, who became annoyed that such information wasn’t forthcoming. IMO if a couple don’t want to tell the Press who they’ve chosen as godparents that’s their right. They know who they are, the godparents obviously know it, and so do Harry’s family and Meghan’s mother. Nobody else needs to be privy to that information.
