That is a popular name now in various royal families: Leonor de Borbón y Ortiz, Eléonore de Belgique, Leonore av Sverige, Leonore van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg

Yes but Meghan would have rather taken Mrs Roosevelt into account (if she wanted to name her daughter Eleanor) rather than all those Princesses.

Wasnt Eleanor Mrs Roosevelts second name and her first was Anna?
So there is a possibility they name the little one Annie (matching to Archie).

But I find it always difficult for a grown up and later aged person to have a name ending with an i. For me names with an i belong to kids. But thats just personal preference.

That will be for sure. She even had to google Harry to search who that ginger dude was.

While the name Archie has no European royal tradition, it was not an unusual name for the general British public. According to official statistics, it was the 17th most popular name for newborn boys in England in 2018, the year before Archie Mountbatten-Windsor was born. Harrison was the 35th most popular.

Princess Leonore seems to have lost her status as Prinsessa av Sverige (Princess of Sweden), so I would imagine she does not use "av Sverige" as a surname. Possibly she uses Bernadotte O'Neill, the name on her Swedish passport.

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 think the first name will be Diana and the middle names may be Elizabeth, Rachel, or Doria. My money right now is on Diana Elizabeth.

As for the name, I have no idea what it will be. But it must be a different name and it will certainly surprise you.
Regarding the godparents, they must choose friends from Harry and Meghan.

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.

I didn't say that Archie was an American style name. I thought that it would be clear that Harrison was the name i meant.

The trouble is that the two names are quite similar, so it's going to sound a bit odd to have them together. Doria Something Diana doesn't sound too bad, but to have them as 2nd and 3rd names would sound strange.

Yeah I dont think they go well together and I think they should be able to pick a special name for their daughter that isn't Doria or Diana. But it woudl be nice to honour the 2 women....

They may also name her Rachel Diana or Elizabeth Diana but use her middle name within the family, like Meghan is actually Rachel Meghan.

I honestly think that Meghan, being a woman that values being a strong, independent woman with a voice, will choose a name that's as different from "honoring ancestors" as Archie is. It will be a name that is unique to her daughter that will give the child her own identity. Just my thoughts though.

They will stay away from any RF names like Anne.
(I’ve always thought the “colour comment” may have come from the horse-mad family of the Princess Royal. They are keenly interested in bloodlines, breeding, etc.)

The queen is very horsey too, and so to a lesser extent is P Charles....

I would think that Camilla would classified as more "horsey" than Charles. Both of them though are very comfortable seated on a horse. Camilla, though, is just one of those people you *know* is an animal lover.

Another name has hit me as a potential reflecting on American first ladies. How about the name Jacqueline (Jackie for short)? So many people admired Jackie Kennedy Onassis for the strength and fortitude she exhibited throughout her time as FLOTUS with the assassination of her husband and then, even with the rumors abounding of JFK's peccadillos.

Prince Harry and Meghan may give only two names to their daughter.
Iris could be used as a name.

Anything could be used as a name. Is there any particular reason why they would use Iris? Is it very popular in the US? is it a family name?>
