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.

I'm going to go for Mary or George.

Mary Elizabeth Diana Caroline

no idea for a boy. I suggest names like Richard or John and then find out they were the ones who were mad or abdicated or were locked up in the attic.

Philip will probably feature as some part if the name for a boy as well as Charles, George and maybe Louis. They will definitely have to use Elizabeth for some part of a girl's name. Also Margaret, Frances and Diana could feature.

Definitely Chantelle

Re Edward VIII, his first name was Edward and he was always known as Edward to the public, although privately (ie by family and friends) he was called David which was the last of his 7 forenames. I think Charles will reign as Charles as that is how he has always been known. The George thing may have been something said to please the Queen Mother.

So George is a possibility for the Cambridge baby. Hope they choose something that hasn't been used so much though. Richard for instance.

For a girl, Charlotte would be a change. We would have had a Queen Charlotte had she not died before her father.

I think Alice, and I'm really hoping I'm wrong because I have an Alice and though she'll be a year older there will always be the comparison. Fingers crossed for Jorja!

Mortified - Kings often take a different regnal (ruling) name from their first given name. Charles can choose to rule as King Charles III or take another name. Possible that Prince Charles may choose to become King George VII after his grandfather.

Alexandra Diana Elizabeth

Henry Charles Phillip

Really really hope it's not Henry as we're expecting DS3 in August and it's the only name we can agree on! Least I'm due after her, rather than before I guess.

Does anyone have a formula for working out a comedy royal-baby name? Like your porn name, crime-novelist name or the royal wedding guest name we had?

LaRegina Mon 10-Jun-13 10:23:33

I still don't understand why Charles wouldn't just be King Charles? confused

But anyway, am hoping for either Jayden or Chelsea for the baby smile

LaRegina - this one got beheaded
this one got beheaded

We didn't have Queen Alexandrina 1837-1901 and yet that was the first name of the Queen that ruled

I still don't understand why Charles wouldn't just be King Charles?

He can be and I think he will be. He was given that name with the expectation that he will be king.

His grandfather should not have been king and took his own father's name, possibly because his father had seen the UK through WWI and it looked like WWII was on the horizon.

or ethelred for a boy

Charles is not a particularly lucky name for kings in England though.

I reckon Adelaide Elizabeth Diana Mary for a girl. Undecided for a boy but Arthur is a strong contender IMO.

SurreyWithAFringeOnTop Mon 10-Jun-13 11:43:31

Arthur or George with Louis, Charles, Henry, William, Michael (her dad) or James (her brother) as middle names

Alexandra or Victoria with Elizabeth, Diana, Anne, Alice, Pippa as middle names (not sure they would go with Carole!)

And then of course it will make a huge come back

daisydoodoo Mon 10-Jun-13 11:48:04

Victoria Elizabeth would be lovely, its due a revival. You rarely hear of baby Victoria's any more.

goodiegoodieyumyum Mon 10-Jun-13 12:10:30

I have also read that Charles won't be King Charles as Charles is an unlucky name for English kings.

NomDeClavier Mon 10-Jun-13 12:14:14

Phillipa would be a good choice for a MN, particularly if the stick to the tradition of having the best man and bridesmaid as Godparents.
