A few people have suggested Diana will be in there if its a girl but I disagree, though Spencer might make a.nice MN for a boy.

I think Margaret Alice or George Spencer.

Philip will be in there somewhere (especially if his health continues to falter).

Frances or Francis.

Kittenofdoom - Charles the 11 left England for his own safety and lived in exile with his mother

Louis for a boy I reckon

Frankee covers either sex. It's got class too.

I hope it is not Mary.. our baby is due a few weeks after and will be Mary if it is a girl.

I don't think they will go for Francis.. would be associated with the new Pope.

Mary Elizabeth Caroline Alexandra or William Phillip Henry George

I always thought that Charles was going to be King Arthur, although it seems not!

Not sure what they will choose for the baby, possibly Edward or Alexandra.

MrsPaddy, good thing you're due after, I think it will be something surprisingly simple like Jane or Mary (both really nice names).

rockybalboa Mon 10-Jun-13 22:43:12

Dunno but she's due on the same day as me (if the Daily Fail can be believed) and my name is Victoria so I'm expecting some major thunder stealing...

mrspaddy Mon 10-Jun-13 22:44:35

Would they really go for Mary? I suppose there is a bit of history with it. I will still go for it as it has a special meaning for us.
Whatever they chose, I think they will be lovely parents. It is not easy for them with the media in their face all the time.

Boy - John
Girl - Charlotte

Charlotte Elizabeth Frances (I've just found out Catherine's Father's middle name is Francis so it has to be a contender)

Not sure about the first name for a boy but i think other names could be.......William Louis Francis

ivykaty Yes, but the monarchy was restored and he returned to reign, so it's not as though he was deposed for ever.

I think everyone would find it very weird if Charles changed his name, since we have always known him as Charles. I can't think of any good reason why he should want to reign as George and I don't think he will.

Carole could get the royal makeovet & become Caroline.

Charles will be privately pleased if it is a boy because of the succession issue. He wasn't keen on the big rush to allow his future granddaughter to succeed & technically take the ' throne out of the house of windsor'.

raisah Tue 11-Jun-13 02:34:31

Isn't Kate's middle name Elizabeth?
So for a commoner she has got the appropriate royal names, Catherine Elizabeth, so therefore has fitted in quite well. I dont think William would have married her if she was called Chantelle or Chardonay!

mirai Tue 11-Jun-13 02:37:40

Even if it's a girl, she will succeed. The big hooha is only relevant if at some point in the future, they have a boy too. Right now it's a load of froth over nothing and makes me mad!!

Girl - Alice (with Diana & Elizabeth in as middle nanes)
Boy - Arthur or Albert

MyThumbsHaveGoneWeird Tue 11-Jun-13 11:50:23

I read that Harry has been telling friends it's def a boy.

Have put money on Arthur and George.

MyThumbsHaveGoneWeird Tue 11-Jun-13 11:52:34

And the betting website would only let me put £7.50 on Arthur (no idea why) so put the extra £2.50 on James, but then later realised that's Kate's brother's name so prob not.

Albert "Bertie"

Victoria if a girl IMO for a boy I suspect Phillip

MyThumbs didn't she say a while ago that she'd prefer a son? I don't think she'd say that without it being a boy? Or I might be remembering wrongly.

I've bet it's a boy for £2 with dd2. I think George as a middle name. That would make me happy, it's the name of our hamster.

She said William would prefer a girl and she would prefer a boy.

Odd comment I thought, to show a preference.
