that would be hilarious.

I am thinking of some form of JeWELL (Jewel) or NoWELL (Noelle) to continue on the Archewell theme

There’s no WELL in Archie or Harrison so that’s hardly likely to even cross Harry and Meghan’s minds.

Why all the insulting and mean-spirited suggestions for names for a little baby on this thread?

My first choice is Ivy. If not Ivy, I like Elinor, and those two were it, but, I just thought of a couple more. Hope or Faith. Hope that a better future awaits. Faith in humanity, that people will be kind and we can all get along.

All three of those suggestions would be lovely choices for the Sussex baby.

I've always liked the names Adelaide and Eleanor. But I can't wait to see what they pick - I was completely surprised by Archie's name haha.

Eleanor is a pretty name. With the Plantagenets there were a lot of Queen Consorts and Princesses who were named Eleanor.

Whatever they name their daughter, I'm sure it's going to be a beautiful name for a beautiful little girl. Both of their children are going to grow up well loved and cared for. No doubt in my mind about that.

Exactly. I was surprised that there are many ridiculous suggestions with implication.



I like Ivy or Lily, sound well with H&M and Archie. Margaret (for middle name)? the original of Meghan as well as name of ancestors of both parents.

Lily Margaret
Ivy Elizabeth
Rosie Doria
Joyce Diana

Elinor/Eleanor is lovely too but I am guessing it for Beatrice's baby if it's a girl.

But there's a well in "Archewell" which is, I understand, called after Archie.

Thanks, Denville, that is what I meant.

Archie’s name was such a surprise to me that I have no clue what they will choose as her first name. But I will be very surprised if the name Diana isn’t in there somewhere; hopefully IMHO as a middle name for the sake of the child.

I hope on old classic names: Alexandra of Sussex, Sophia of Sussex, Georgiana of Sussex, Lavinia of Sussex. I am a bit done with the Cassiuses, the Archies, the Mias, it may be a more classy.

Princess Lily has a total different connotation than Princess Elizabeth. Like -for me- maybe the discussion to name him Prince Harry also in public instead of Prince Henry, knibbled away the necessary distance any monarchy needs.

So I hope it will not be a Kourtney of Sussex or a Kayleigh of Sussex.

Since they are now living in America and clearly seeing themselves as more American than British, I doubt if they will go for an old fashioned classic like Sophia or Alexandra. And their daughter will not be Princess Anything of Sussex. She could be known as Lady Mary Mountbatten Windsor, but given that they didn't give Archie a courtesy title, I doubt if they're going ot use the title Lady for the new baby. It would be pretty ridiculous anway....

She will be in the next reign, unless King Charles reforms the rules set down in 1917.

They will be HRH Prince Archie of Sussex and HRH Princess Alexandra of Sussex when Charles becomes King. (Unless the Sussexes follow the "Wessex route" in which Louise and James absolutely are princes of the blood royal but are styled as children of an Earl, by choice of their parents).

At present they wont be Prince or Princess. And if they do what they did with Archie, their new baby will be simply Miss Mountbatten WIndsor.

I hope not a Miss Katayleah Shaniquelle Mountbatten-Windsor.

I trust on a minimum of lucidity by mom and dad. Elizabeth Diana Charlotte Maud or something.

I think its most unlikely that they will go for traditionally royal names. They didn't with Archie and when he was born, they were still working royals and yet they chose to give him an unusual name and an Americanised name. No royal names at all. So since this baby's going to be born in the US and they have broken complete with Harry's family I can't see why they would go for any kind of traditional name.

Well, yes and no as far as Archie being an Americanized name. It fits right in with the very British trend of shortening the more formal, old-fashioned names like Alfred, Frederick, Leopold, Albert, Charles, etc to nicknames like Alfie, Freddy, Leo, Bertie, Charlie, etc as the given name on the birth certificate instead. That's also been a trend in the US, but one that's made its way from across the pond. Archibald/Archie might be a bit on the unusual side but it's still very much part of that milieu.

Older names are the hot trend and have been for the last 5-6 years. My older niece's friend circle have had more than a dozen baby girls among them in that time and I know of the following: Vivienne, 2 Eleanors, Stella, Lily, Addilyn, 2 Penelopes (one nicknamed Penny, the other Poppy), Karen, Ellen, Glennda, Aspen, Loretta, and Zoey. And I know I'm forgetting a couple of names in that mix - plus I don't know if my niece & her husband have decided on a name for their next baby yet (another girl!). So, I'd say that Eleanor, Lily, or Penelope and others of a similar vein are only too possible and likely, especially given that they already have Archie.
