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.

Crown Princess Victoria married her personal trainer.

Frederick or Isabella

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden named her daughter Estelle, which was without precedent and came as a big surprise to all. So you never know.

I am grateful for being able to.choose my childs name with only DHs opinion. Imagine if she has always wanted to call her son Frank or her daughter Chloe. Sad that she cant.

NappiesandGladrags Mon 24-Jun-13 14:06:10

Whichever they choose (or has been decided wink) I really am hoping for something less obvious and traditional (ie Charles or Albert, and not Elizabeth or Victoria etc). Something not too out there, but perhaps

Felix or i don't know Gabriel for a boy

Mary or Eleanor for a girl would be nice, or perhaps Harriet...

Won't be Henry as that's Harry's proper name

hollyisalovelyname Sun 23-Jun-13 23:37:37

Perhaps Henry if a boy?

I reckon a boy called Alexander Charles Phillip Spencer

Anybody can choose to be known by any name they choose, and monarchs are no exception.

Absolutely math - Victoria'a given name was Alexandrina.

Would a girl be able to adopt a regnal name as a boy can?

Pyrrah Tue 18-Jun-13 12:06:36

My guesses:

Girl:
First name - Matilda, Victoria or Charlotte
Middles - Elizabeth, Caroline, Diana

Boy:
First name - Edward, Arthur, George or Richard
Middles - Charles, Michael, Philip, Louis

hollyisalovelyname Mon 17-Jun-13 14:05:47

Elinor ( william's great grandmother was Cynthia Elinor)

hollyisalovelyname Mon 17-Jun-13 13:56:48

I forgot that you have to imagine a girl's name with Queen before it!!!smile
Queen Alice- no
Queen Diana- no
Queen Caroline??
Difficult

Interesting mythumbs I see wallis is on at 250 to one. I can't believe people would waste their money! Terry is on the list too. Does that mean that at least one foolish person put money on it being Terry? My own name is on, but the odds aren't ridiculous.

Taylor and Chardonnay were suggested on page one!

FreedomOfTheTess Mon 17-Jun-13 10:44:51

A fiver on Chardonnay anyone?!

MyThumbsHaveGoneWeird Mon 17-Jun-13 10:41:13

Anothercup here you go
grin

AnotherLovelyCupOfCoffee Mon 17-Jun-13 09:04:01

I think it could be Mary. Mary is a royal name, but it's not one of a Queen in recent history so it's a name a child could make her own. I could see Kate pushing for something simple like Mary or Jane. Obviously not Mary Jane together :-p

Mary Elizabeth is my bet. There, if I have to put down a fiver I'm putting it on Mary Elizabeth Diana. Maybe Caroline will be a subsequent dd's middle name.

bugsybill Mon 17-Jun-13 04:00:48

Maybe making history that should be not will

bugsybill Mon 17-Jun-13 03:51:23

I hope it is not going to be overly 'heavy' and traditional like Elizabeth, Victoria, Henry, Charles, Alexander, Frederick, William etc

I would love to see a little future King Jasper, Thomas or Felix.

Girls I would like to see something not too feminine as I thinki it would be nice to have a strong female name as she will be making history when she becomes Queen.

Maybe a little future Queen Helen, Claire, Mary or Ellen/Eleanor.

Oblique is good enough for the present royals to be considered royal. It's the weddings that make all the difference wink

Yellowtip Sun 16-Jun-13 21:35:56

I can't imagine it would be Mary for a moment Freedom, I think you're safe!

FreedomOfTheTess Sun 16-Jun-13 20:12:28

Edward's son is James, his daughter is Louise.

As long as it isn't Mary - the name of my newborn daughter - I don't really care!
