Then again, I could be wrong. I often am.


I had thought Elizabeth was a likely middle name, but given what just came out of Harry’s mouth regarding his grandparents and parents, I find that more debatable now. But- who knows. That said- Elizabeth is quite a common name in the US (It’s my middle name- and several of my family members.) However, if they chose Elizabeth, most people would naturally associate the choice with The Queen.

It wouldn’t surprise me if Diana was a name somewhere though. I would hope for the child’s sake it was a middle name.

Carolina or Caroline, which is the female form of Carolus (Charles), would be nice. In etymology it means "free person".

I am 100% sure that there will be no names invoking Charles or any form of tribute to him taken into consideration.

I hope he does (or they do).

I don't think the child will be named after QE II. Or Philippa. Unless they are middle names.

I thought Philippa or Alice might be in there somewhere but not sure about that now! Then again they don't exactly have a coherent narrative for which family members they're okay with.

They certainly don’t! Praise Philip when he passes- under the bus a month later. Similar to the Queen. So, go figure if either one would even be considered as a possible name of some kind.

While I still think Diana is a likely name somewhere, she didn’t seem to be completely immune from criticism either.

So- it is indeed hard to say about names IMO. At least if you’re thinking family names may be included somewhere. I can’t begin to guess on other names though. Lol (I sure never would have guessed Archie. Though- to me- that is more British- I suppose? It isn’t a common name that I’ve heard in the US anyway.)

I'm going to have a guess at Rose/Rosie. Dianna was called an English Rose. Maybe being in Margaret's name might put them off. I don't know what you'd put with it..Rosie Doria? Rosie Diana is a bit too Diana-ish but it would be nice to acknowledge Meghan's mum.

I wish they would acknowledge her mother too, but I also think they wouldn't use direct relative's nanes for either first or middle name (see Archie's name).

In keeping with Rose/Rosie, could the name Rosalie work?

I think the middle name will be Diana; I can’t see Meg agreeing to Diana as a first name and I would sincerely hope they wouldn’t saddle a child with the name Diana due to all that name would mean. I don’t think any other names will honor in any way anyone in the RF. I don’t have a single clue about the first name. Who would have ever guessed Archie ?
But I like Osipi’s idea of Veronica or Edith

I'd be very surprised indeed if any name sounding like one of the RF will be used.
'Diana' is going to be in the mix somewhere, i wouldn't be surprised.

of that list above, and matching with 'Archie' I wouldn't be surprised of an Amy, Abby, Emilly/Emmy or Evy...

But we'll soon find out

I expect an unpredictable first name and Diana as second name; [...], so this would be a great way to establish that and honor Harry's mother who passed away at such a young age.

Carolina/Caroline/Charlotte are all the same name. I doubt they would give their daughter the same name as Princess Charlotte

Caroline and Charlotte both derive from Charles but they aren't necessarily the same name. For example, Queen Alexandra the wife of Edward VII was named Alexandra Caroline Marie Charlotte Louise Julia.

Harry and Meghan obviously won’t use Charlotte as a forename for their daughter. And Caroline, Carolina, and variations of, are very similar to Carole, the first name of Kate’s mum, so IMO very unlikely to be used either.

Surprised I haven't seen more people predicting Grace after the other american actress that married a prince. Grace Diana would be a sweet name but definitely hard to live up to

Most unlikely.
