LOL, fab idea.

My top 3 of each are..

Chardonnay or Wayne.

Bue Mon 03-Dec-12 17:02:55

Boy will be George or William. Girl will be Alice or Mary. You heard it here first.

Bue Mon 03-Dec-12 17:03:18

I meant George or Edward, not William!

I think the boy will be George, Albert or Arthur. Girl will be Alice, Alexandra, Victoria or Mary. As future monarch, it will have to be a traditional royal name I think.

Frontpaw Mon 03-Dec-12 17:11:42

Do you think Diana will be in the mix?

andrew <<where they met>>

Ok, the best thing to do is eliminate a few names first on the basis of others already having used them recently.

So we won't have:

William, Henry,

Alice, Summer and Savannah grin

FellatioNelson Mon 03-Dec-12 17:13:59

YY to Diana, deffo, but probably not for a first name.

FellatioNelson Mon 03-Dec-12 17:14:30

I would plump for Rihanna Gaga. Very current.

Elizabeth Diana

FellatioNelson Mon 03-Dec-12 17:17:04

What they often do is use a first name that is suitable for king and then have them known as their second name.

Arthur could be in there. I hope not Albert though. Urrgh.

Victoria = boring.

I actually think Elizabeth Mary will be the favourite. Both are lovely and pretty fashionable right now.

Caoimhe Mon 03-Dec-12 17:17:15

For a girl:
1. Victoria
2. Alexandra
3. Mary
4. Louise

For a boy, maybe George?

FellatioNelson Mon 03-Dec-12 17:17:43

Ooh yes! Elizabeth Diana Mary

Bue Mon 03-Dec-12 17:22:29

Who are Alice and Summer? confused

My bet is on Elizabeth Diana as the middle names.

EssieW Mon 03-Dec-12 17:24:23

Elizabeth for a girl. Poss Victoria but Elizabeth would be better with our current queen. I think Elizabeth would be the reigning name.

Middle names - Diana and maybe some more unusual ones.

Please not alice (do not want any more popularity for that name...)

Boys - George? Depends on what Charles and William see themselves reigning as. Henry would be a interesting choice.

Minnieheehee Mon 03-Dec-12 17:24:48

Bloody hope they don't pick Alexandra for a girl- that's my first choice if we manage to get preggers this year!

Bue Mon 03-Dec-12 17:30:50

I don't think they will be "doing" regnal names anymore, surely? It just seems so anachronistic. I mean, Elizabeth thought it was a ridiculous idea 60 years ago that she might choose a name that wasn't her own.

FellatioNelson Mon 03-Dec-12 17:31:08

Alice is Edward's daughter, and whoops, I meant Autumn and Savannah, not Summer and Savannah! (Peter Phillips's wife and daughter)

FellatioNelson Mon 03-Dec-12 17:31:40

Got me seasons in a muddle. confused

FellatioNelson Mon 03-Dec-12 17:32:47

It would be lovely if they picked something totally different and un-used previously, although it would have to be regal sounding, obviously.
