Names and godparents for Beatrice and Edo's first child
 
Now with happy news just announced, we can start a new thread:

Girl - Marina Philippa Susan
Boy - Ronald Philipp Alexander

Godparents: Princess Eugenie & Alby Shale.

I think Elizabeth is almost certain to be a middle name, and maybe Sarah. For a first name something modern but not too out there. Id like to think Philip for a boy but Eugenie got there first in a way. I like the name Alexander, which would go with Edos surname.

No idea about godparents except perhaps Eugenie and Jack.

I am going to predict a girl for Beatrice.

As Wolfie and Bea both have animal themed nicknames I was thinking they could go with something like:
Girl: Kitty Elizabeth Nicola
Boy: Leopold (Leo) Edoardo Philip

I think the baby girl is on the way!

Princess B 05-19-2021 05:47 AM

Girl - Amelia Elizabeth
Boy - Alexander (Alex) Philip David

For godparents, I'm thinking of
Earl of Wessex (Appeared to be close to the York Princesses)
Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor (Appeared to be close to the York Princesses and will be aged 18 in this year's November)
Charles Armstrong-Jones, Viscount Linley or Lady Margarita Armstrong-Jones (Their father, now 2nd Earl of Snowdon is Beatrice's godfather)
Peter Phillips, Zara Tindall, Duke of Cambridge or Duke of Sussex (Beatrice's paternal cousins)
Relatives in the Mapelli Mozzi family (unfortunately I do not know much about)
Relatives in the Ferguson family (ditto)
For names, I think Beatrice might go down a traditional route even more so than Eugenie. I would not be surprised if Victoria, Elizabeth, Mary, Alexandra, Alexandrina (Queen Victoria's first name at birth), Sarah, Nicola (Edo's mother's name), Alice, Philip, Andrew, Albert, Edward, George or Alexander are considered for middle names.

I agree that I can see Bea being way more traditional. My guess Victor/Victoria is at the top of the list.

Somebody 05-19-2021 06:43 AM

Would Victoria be on the cards for a daughter of Beatrice?

principessa 05-19-2021 06:50 AM

Girl: Elizabeth Sarah Nicola
Boy: Philip Andrew Alexander

Godparents: Princess Eugenie, Natalia Alice Yeomans, Ellie Goulding, Jonathan Agnew

Possibly. There hasn't been a Victoria for a LONG time in the RF, I think they got sick of it, in QV's day...
I woudn't say Victor is likely though.

I have a feeling is going to be a girl and so far I got the four Royal babies of this year right so we'll see if I'll get the fifth too.
So: godparents: Eugenie for sure and Edo's sibilings but I can also see Lady Louise (they seem close and she is turning 18 in November)
Names: I have zero idea on what could be their style
With Wolfe he used a traditional first name (in honour of his Stepdad) and a more modern middle that is used as a main so maybe the will do the same (expecially with Philip's passing so close to the birth)
Little personal note: I'm from the province in Italy Edo's family is from and our patron saint is Sant'Alessandro (Saint Alexander) so I would die for a little Alexander/Alexandra (which would also be a tribute to Edo's father and Alexander is also a name of the Greek royals and a Mountbatten name)

I would love to see the name Victoria come back into the Royal Family, and Beatrice does seem very interested in Queen Victoria ... but, although the name was very popular in the 1970s and 1980s, it seems to be out of fashion at the moment.

King of the Jungle 05-19-2021 07:52 AM

Sweet news for Beatrice and Edoardo.

Victoria Mary Nicola Mapelli Mozzi
Alice Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi
Margaux Susanna Mapelli Mozzi

Albert Edward Philip Mapelli Mozzi
Alessandro Edward Philip Mapelli Mossi
Edward Alexander Mapelli Mozzi

I'm guessing a girl born 23rd October.
Four godparents including Lady Louise, Prince William and two friends.

Yes, but perhaps it's about time to make a comeback?
Names seem to go in cycles, and I think Victoria would be a lovely name for a girl.

Girl, Victoria Alice

Moonmaiden23 05-19-2021 09:29 AM

I think it will be a girl, and I hope she is called Victoria. Beatrice's affinity with Queen Victoria is well known. And she even resembles young Victoria

I am almost 100% certain that Eugenie will be a godparent....it's so wonderful that little August will have a cousin so close in age as a playmate!;)

Sandy345 05-19-2021 09:37 AM

If a girl, Sarah as a first or middle name. Susan as a name in honor of the child's maternal great grandmother.

leticia.h 05-19-2021 10:03 AM

Girls:
Victoria Elizabeth Nicola
Victoria Sarah Elizabeth
Elizabeth Sarah Nicola
Alice Victoria Elizabeth

Boys:
Alexander Philip Nicholas
Alexander Fillipo Andrea

Curryong 05-19-2021 10:07 AM

I wonder whether Eugenie or Andrew will be a choice for their babys name?

W.Y.CII 05-19-2021 10:09 AM

I hope they will have a boy so August will have a childhood buddy, at the same time I hope they will have a girl so Wolfie will have a little sister :biggrin:, random thoughts:

Boy:
- Robert Philip Abraham
- Anton Leopold Marco
- Victor Albert Alessandro
- Arthur Claude Emerson

Girl:
- Adelaide Susan Maria
- Cecilia Mary Angela
- Maud Felicita Elizabeth
- Eleanor Margaret Sophia

But maybe they will pick two name only like the baby's half brother.
