I love Mary and I've been hoping for a comeback for it for a couple of years - maybe this will be it!

Not sure about Mary, the first one wasn't a very happy Queen. I still think Elizabeth, but called Beth, Liza or another of the diminutives until she becomes Queen.

I think they will use the opportunity to break the mould, show the public they are moving with the times. that's the way the palace is trying to present them in general. that said, I wouldn't expect a Britney or an Ellie- mae

Bookies favourite for a boy is now James . I have never thought James was a option as Edward has a son James so the queen would then have a grandson and great grandson with same name .

Her brother is James too.

Also there is already a Princess Alexandra who is implicated in some rumours so I don't know if they would go for that name either?

I actually think they could use:

Girl: leonora ( with Elizabeth and diana at least as middle names)
Boy: Leonard / Leopold ( with Philippe / Albert/ Charles)

Prince or princess Leo has a nice ring to it

Still think it will be Isobella.

Adelaide would be great. Or Alexandrina (which was Queen Victoria's first name iirc).

Or Sophia. The Act of Settlement stated that all monarchs should be descended from Sophia, who was Queen Anne's heir to the throne (she died before Anne so her son inherited and became George I). So it has a royal precedent. And it is my daughter's name so obviously I think it is great. grin

What about Margaret?

I reckon they should be really adventurous and name it Berengaria.

I think , if it's a girl, Eliza would be lovely. They could always put Elizabeth on the birth cert.

Won't be Eliza, Camilla's daughter has an Eliza.

Sweet name though.

I can't imagine Charles I was too happy when they were knocking his block off. grin

But that didn't stop our Queen from bestowing the name on a future monarch.

Seriously. Pretty much every royal name has a bad precedent. I'm not saying it will be Mary. But it won't not be Mary because one of the predecessors had a few, um, anger-management and health issues.
