Not sure why we have this topic as godparents will be top secret information, never to be revealed as was the case with Archie. All that secrecy just makes people wanting to know the information more. The names of the Cambridge godparents were publicized and now no one cares who they are.

We always have similar topics for every well known royal pregnancy here at TRF.

I think it will be a girl.

I'll guess the name Andrea Doria Diana. Diana for obvious reasons and Andrea Doria for one of my favorite ship wrecks.

I think the baby will be baptized in California at Doria and Oprah's church. The Sussexes press team will say that the BRF watched the ceremony via Zoom (whether they actually did , who knows). Once again no godparents will be officially announced. Though at some point the Fosters and/or Gayle will tell the world if they were one of the godparents.

The press will criticize the Sussexes for snubbing the Church of England and it's head (the Queen). The Sussexes press allies will criticize the media and the CoE. Rinse and repeat the usual cycle.

Sorry to disappoint those who now think Meghan in her attempt to turn Harry into some anti-British robot, has led him away from Anglicanism, there will be no 'Oprah church' baptism.

Agape is not a church. Its a spiritual center. And one that doesn't even primarily consider itself christian.

The field is wide open for baby Sussex's because of Archie. I remember thinking at the time of Archie's naming the next would be Barnaby/Barney. Not so sure about that now, but I think a little Freddy is possible. It is becoming popular, a wee big royal, and it goes well with Archie.

For a little girl, I think Dorothy is a good possibility. similar to Doria, but it has its own vibes.

Might the name Oprah be a contender?

I too like the name Freddy and you're correct there are more little Freddies around. I know about Lord Frederick Windsor but he's a distant enough relative for it not to matter.

Freddy is cute! And maybe Dorothea? I feel like Thea might be a favorable nickname.

One of the British dailies published the picture of H and M with the caption "What about names". The clever duchess is quoted as saying 'Sue if it is a girl and Rich if it is a boy'. There is also a caption for the prince who can feel the British press kicking madly inside the Baby bump!

That's supposed to be ' Oh so clever and amusing' of the Star is it, with reference to a couple who are expecting a much wanted and special second baby after an awful miscarriage?
Yes, the British tabloids are no doubt kicking back, considering the recent huge loss in the Courts.

^Would Star be a good name for the second baby of Harry and Meghan?

Not before about 98 billion other choices of name have been considered, no. Perhaps journalists at The Star could choose it for their own future offspring,

Yes a journalist who thought 'Sue or Rich' were witty suggestions, likely would see Star as a lovely name for their child.

As unlikely as Lady Oprah Mountbatten-Windsor is.

But the shgip was named after a man! Andrea (which is a male firstname in Italy) from the Doria-family was a genuese admiral and the Prince of Malfi, one of the most influencial men of his time in the mediterranean sea.

Well not that I think the name would ever be used, but this child will be a British royal and American raised. And Andrea is a female name in the English speaking world mainly.

I can see the media's face if they named a kid Andrea. Its a cognate of Andrew.

LOL. But let them joke. Tabloid journos like to do that.

Maybe H&M will name a girl Doria Diana. But no, better not, for the short form could be Dodi and I doubt Harry will want that! But maybe Diana Doria. Dido, the queen of Karthage, famous lover of Aeneas of Troy, was said to be a great beauty and a loyal woman to boot....

Its not that common to combine first and middle names to make a nickname.

They would more likely be nicknamed Dori/Di (like her grandmother).

I don't see them going for a full honor of either woman. Especially not Diana as a first name, too much pressure on a girl.

They are no longer at a place in life where this is the case. I don't feel strongly that this will be the case but certainly would not be surprised.

*Please note I mean this quite broadly- many young couples who live near in-laws choose to follow religious traditions until establishing more independence, for example.
However, to be part of the line of succession to the British throne one has to be a Protestant Christian, which is law based on the Bill of Rights and the Act of Settlement. A traditional baptism would be the simplest means to affirm that the child is a Protestant.

It's early in the morning and I haven't slept yet so bear with my one brain cell which is fighting against me here.

I predict that it will be a girl and the logical name for Archie's little sister is (drumroll)...... Veronica. Ronnie for short.

I thought this article had a good breakdown of different questions about the baby including what the betters are betting on. According to the bookies Alfie and Alexandra are the favorites. I like both - I wonder if the bookies have ever gotten it right? As I recall when Harry was born they had Elvis as a remote bet possibility.
