Predictions for Harry and Meghan's baby name?

(150 Posts)
PiperPublickOccurrences Sat 03-Nov-18 23:11:46

As this little one will be far down the pecking order, they will have the freedom to go a bit more off piste. Like Andrew did with Beatrice and Eugenie - royal names, but not a George, Edward or Elizabeth.

Diana has to be in there somewhere if it's a girl. Think we can safely assume Thomas out of the running for a boy...

I predict:

Girl: Grace Diana or Helena Diana
Boy: Christian or Matthew

(will probably be totally wrong and they'll name it Aquamarine Byzantium or Hercules Antarctica).

Simon for a boy.
Amanda for a girl.

PrincessTwilightStoleMyToddler Sat 03-Nov-18 23:21:44

I think there will be something from Meghan’s side in there too - maybe not Doria (although could be - it’s nice but wouldn’t work if they wanted Diana in there somewhere) but perhaps another family name (not Thomas or Samantha).

Arthur William

Sophronia Sun 04-Nov-18 05:51:19

Victoria or Theodore

ItsalmostSummer Sun 04-Nov-18 06:01:32

Trevor or Cindy. I think I’ll win.

EcruTable Sun 04-Nov-18 06:05:39

Trevor was her ex husband’s name.

OliviaStabler Sun 04-Nov-18 06:09:04

If it is a girl, I think they'll give her Diana as a second name.

mathanxiety Sun 04-Nov-18 08:08:12

For a girl, I think they will give names like Savannah, Isla, Mia or Lena - trendy, or American style, and not necessarily RF names. Middle names may be a bit more traditional/RF.

Sierra
Isobel
Rose
Sydney
Alexandra
Victoria
Sophia
Doria
Diana
Frances

For a boy, something more traditional.
Frederick hasn't been used yet.

youarenotkiddingme Sun 04-Nov-18 08:16:22

I thought exactly the same about Thomas after it immediately came to me as a good name

Thomas
Mathew
James
Charles

Isabella
Eleanor
Victoria
Alice

AdaColeman Sun 04-Nov-18 08:17:20

Toronto for a boy.
Adelaide for a girl.

NorthernLurker Sun 04-Nov-18 08:20:41

I think the traditional names are in with a shot

Alice
Mary
Victoria
Elizabeth

Philip
David

sashh Sun 04-Nov-18 08:20:50

Victoria Frances Rachel foir a girl, for a boy Arthur Charles William.

BertramKibbler Sun 04-Nov-18 08:23:01

As I understand it the children will not be Prince/Princess until the Queen dies at which point they can choose to use the title? I feel like this will have an impact

areyoubeingserviced Sun 04-Nov-18 08:23:17

Grace Frances- girl
Albert Charles- boy

AuntieStella Sun 04-Nov-18 08:27:43

There quite a few people called Xenia if you look down the line of succession....

I was wondering about Gloria (nice way to honour HMQ). Possibly Francesca. Or as PP mentioned, Cindy (as nn for Lucinda)

Rachel and Diana as middle names.

Boys, posisibly Rupert (a kind of Army joke), Alexander, Benedict (maybe not Frederick, as there's already a Lord Frederick Windsor, but his side of the family seems to repeat cousin names quite a lot), or Albert (as he won't be Prince unless something horrible wipes out all the Cambridges)

Yogagirl123 Sun 04-Nov-18 08:29:36

Diana Elizabeth Victoria Margaret

Albert Charles Philip Henry

GoodJanet Sun 04-Nov-18 08:48:38

Balonz has to be in the running for a boy, surely? After all, the royal baby to be was conceived in Surrey...

Aventurine Sun 04-Nov-18 08:54:59

Someone suggested combining the grandmothers' names into Doriana which i quite liked

KatnissK Sun 04-Nov-18 09:22:06

I reckon they might go less traditional. Maybe something like Ella or Nora for a girl and Zachary or Levi for a boy. Or a total wildcard like Delilah or Malachi!

AliCanTea Sun 04-Nov-18 09:25:39

For a girl I think Matilda, Rosa or Eleanor.

Electrascoffee Sun 04-Nov-18 09:54:37

I can't see the child being named anything like 'Mary'

I think the child will have a less traditional name than William and Catherine's children

Mumsnut Sun 04-Nov-18 09:55:39

John

AdaColeman Sun 04-Nov-18 14:38:52

Spencer for a boy.
Margaret for a girl.

Victoria

Alice

Frederick (Freddie)
Albert (Bertie)
Maximilian

Picknickers Mon 05-Nov-18 00:23:35

Doriana is a good shout for a middle name
Alice Doriana Elizabeth
Nicholas Charles Richard

Bunnybigears Mon 05-Nov-18 00:26:23

I think Alice or Verity for a girl or Daniel or Benjamin for a boy.

mathanxiety Mon 05-Nov-18 06:24:02

Actually, cancel Frederick. MM has a crazy uncle Frederick.

Maybe Lois, Claudia, or Lily for girls.

Birdie69 Mon 05-Nov-18 06:26:21

Victoria
Doria

Albert
Alfred

IvyFluids Mon 05-Nov-18 07:01:50

Doria's full name is Doria Loyce. Her mother was Jeanette.
I can't say I am a fan of the first two names.

Victoria Mary
Elizabeth Alice
Jeanette Margaret
Nicholas Phillip
David Spencer

Idontmeanto Mon 25-Feb-19 18:24:24

Spencer Charles for a boy and and Liberty Sarah for a girl. Traditional with an American spin to them.

PatchworkElmer Mon 25-Feb-19 18:27:13

Olivia
Max

Jaz32 Mon 25-Feb-19 19:14:20

Victoria or Alice
Albert or Spencer

Princess Charlotte already has “Elizabeth Diana” as her middle names so I don’t know if they’d use them as well... Doriana combo is a good shout lol

Believability Mon 25-Feb-19 19:20:08

I don’t think they’ll go American. I think it’s more likely to be

Isabella
Florence
Amelia

Alexander
Nicholas
James

There could be a John somewhere after Diana’s father and a Charles as a middle name.

I think Harry is a senior enough Royal that the Queen will veto anything too untraditional.

waterandlemonjuice Mon 25-Feb-19 19:23:50

I think it’ll be something traditional like Alice, Elizabeth, Victoria.

AutumnCrow Mon 25-Feb-19 19:25:14

Victoria

Edwin

ElektraLOL Mon 25-Feb-19 19:56:22

Isabella is even more popular in America than it is here!

Cookit Mon 25-Feb-19 20:08:33

But I think her friend (the Canadian stylist one)’s daughter is Isabel or Isabella.

Disfordarkchocolate Mon 25-Feb-19 20:16:52

I don't think they would ever have Diana as the first name, too much baggage for any child. I would love Doria to be one of the names if they have a girl.

Doriana.

SomethingWithLemons Mon 25-Feb-19 21:56:22

It won't be traditional - MM needs to remind everyone she won't bend to Royal rules.

SemperIdem Mon 25-Feb-19 22:46:13

Doriana?

I know MM is American but a Twilight style Renesme name mashup is possibly a bit much.

Ivgotasecretcanyoukeepit Mon 25-Feb-19 22:48:12

Doriana is horrific.

Ikeameatballs Mon 25-Feb-19 22:55:14

I think
John nn Jack
Robert
Tobias

Maya
Lydia
Helena
Penelope
Esther

VelvetPineapple Mon 25-Feb-19 22:59:54

I actually think MM is enough of a fame seeker to just outright name the kid Diana.

LaurenOrdering Mon 25-Feb-19 23:04:38

Eliza or Sophia.
Ferdinand or Christian.

Didyeeaye Tue 26-Feb-19 00:29:38

My mum would probably cry if they named a DD Diana (she loves princess Diana)
I reckon it will be traditional but without any obvious royal ties.
Perhaps, Emily or Benjamin?

ColeHawlins Tue 26-Feb-19 00:48:29

For a girl any of the following night appear as middle names;
Loyce (Doria's middle name),
Frances (Diana's middle name & also Diana's mother) or
Jeanette (Doria's mother)

I can't see Doria and Diana both being used together.

For boys, they'll probably have to look more to Harry's side for inspiration.

SurgeHopper Tue 26-Feb-19 00:50:19

Nah, it'll be something totally off the wall.

It's a girl and she'll be called something unique.

dolphin50 Tue 26-Feb-19 01:30:38

Diana chose william and Harry while Charles wanted arthur or albert which Diana thought was too formal. Will and Harry are such normal names in a classroom. You wouldn't think regal. George is more regal but charlotte and Louis sound quite normal. Think its weird that Louis is Georges middle name. I'm really careful not to do middle names i would want for my next child. Low ranking members of the royal family have names like for girls rose, ella and amelia, and for boys freddie, sam and charlie which are more normal and nice they could go for. If they have a girl it would be lovely if the name starts with a D and ends with an A as its a tribute to both their mums. Delila would be lovely and lily could be a nickname. its also a tribute that to the queen as she was called lilibet by family. Daisy is another possibility thats a D name. Harry was straight away named Henry to be known as Harry while George as never been Georgie or Charlotte known as charley or lottie but it was always Harry. I think their child might have a less formal name too. Prince Edwards children Louise and James are more normal. Their son could be James to be known as Jem, Charles to be known as Charlie or Samuel to be known as Sam while their daughter could be Annabel to be known as Annie, Rosa to be known as Rose or Mary to be known as Molly. Traditional names like Sam, Ben and Joe, Hannah, Delilah and Rachel which aren't regal but are biblical could be a possibility

dolphin50 Tue 26-Feb-19 01:36:30

think Delila would be perfect as its a tribute to their mums, is biblical and similar to the queens childhood nickname of lilibet. wish i could suggest it to them lol

dolphin50 Tue 26-Feb-19 01:37:37

both harry and meghan had very close relationships with their mum growing up and Delilah sounds like both Diana and Dora. D and A at beginning and end

MercyBodle Tue 26-Feb-19 01:37:40

For a girl I could see a strong and sleek, and currently stylish name, that also has a history of strong women:

Ada
Edith
Matilda
Harriet
Bridget

Edith and Matilda are both early royal names too, and Bridget is another (Princess Bridget of York, Edward IV daughter) and means strength. Ada as a strong women's movement early leader, and Harriet of course as a nod to Harry (and ref to Harriet Beecher Stowe). Or Harriet in the middle. Also wouldn't surprise me if they skipped the Diana/Doria thing altogether but did some more obscure reference to one or both: eg Edith Elizabeth Daisy with another D name to refer to the grandmothers.

For a boy:
John 'Jack'
Edward/Edmund 'Ted' 'Teddy'

BoreOfWhabylon Tue 26-Feb-19 02:00:45

ElektraLOL Tue 26-Feb-19 02:14:12

There is no way the kid will be called Delilah 😂 not with that Tom Jones song.

dolphin50 Tue 26-Feb-19 02:15:21

DELILA

ElektraLOL Tue 26-Feb-19 02:16:25

I agree with Mercy. Actually people on MN did accurately predict the names of the Cambridge's kids so it's likely to be someone on this thread.

ElektraLOL Tue 26-Feb-19 02:17:57

Yes but dolphin, the spelling is irrelevant really. It's perception isn't it?

LynetteScavo Tue 26-Feb-19 08:04:59

I wouldn't be surprised if it were Delilah.

shpoot Tue 26-Feb-19 08:39:06

Ffs 😂 Delilah.

Bellatrix14 Tue 26-Feb-19 08:54:18

If I got to pick I’d go for something like Alice, Rosamund or Madeleine for a girl, something fairly traditional but a little bit different to what the Cambridge’s have gone for. Or perhaps Frances in honour of Diana.

Boys names are harder, maybe Theodore, Matthew or Nicholas? Or they could always have another Charles!

I don’t think they’ll go for Elizabeth as a middle name as both Princess Charlotte and Lena Tindall have it already. I would hope personally that they don’t go for Diana as it feels a bit much as a first name and it’s Charlotte’s middle name but you never know!

Bellatrix14 Tue 26-Feb-19 08:58:28

@dolphin50 unless you mean ‘Delia’ and that’s why you’re getting so cross, Delila and Delilah are the same name, with ‘Delilah’ being the far more popular spelling! hmm

Skyejuly Tue 26-Feb-19 10:39:16

I think probably Alice, Ava, Grace.

Mangotango123 Tue 26-Feb-19 11:32:11

We are due in Sept and have started thinking about our names already ... whatever the name outcome is for the royals, it will alter our list if that name appears on there as it is bound to soar in popularity regardless of what it is!

HoratioNightboy Tue 26-Feb-19 20:17:26

I think Elizabeth has a very strong chance of being a middle name - all but four of the Queen Mother's fourteen female descendants have it, although obviously the Queen has it as a first name instead. It might even be a contender for first name, with one of the less obvious shortenings like Libby or Zibby or Eliza. I'd love them to go for Bunty though!

Disfordarkchocolate Wed 27-Feb-19 09:49:39

Carolina Doria Elizabeth for a girl
Matthew Henry Charles for a boy

formerbabe Wed 27-Feb-19 11:55:17

I wouldn't be surprised if they chose

Alexander for a boy
Or
Alexandra for a girl

Antonin Wed 27-Feb-19 12:47:58

Isn’t Edward’s boy Alexander?

TeacupDrama Wed 27-Feb-19 12:58:29

Edward's son is James Viscount Severn

dolphin50 Thu 28-Feb-19 03:58:06

princess anne went for zara and so they can probably go for anything

aliceelizaloves Thu 28-Feb-19 06:46:35

Matilda for a girl. It's meaning, mighty in battle, could appeal to MM, who often champions female empowerment. Also an early Royal name, traditional but current.

Maybe Spencer for a boy as a nod to Diana's maiden name. Although Spencer Matthews is loosely family so maybe not.

aliceelizaloves Thu 28-Feb-19 06:47:51

Alexander is the Clooneys' son who seem to be besties with H and M.

Caroline / Diana / Doria /Elizabeth for their relatives - I rather like Doria Diana! Could be DeeDee for short smile

Mmmhmmokdear Thu 28-Feb-19 09:08:58

Something posh but not traditional, like:

Rosa
Eleanor

Xavier
Hugo

MercyBodle Thu 28-Feb-19 09:18:53

I agree with Horatio that Elizabeth is likely to be in there somewhere, and couldn't help but look up the full Christian names of the 14 female descendants of Elizabeth the Queen Mother:

Queen Elizabeth Alexandra Mary
Princess Margaret Rose
Princess Anne Elizabeth Alice Louise
Zara Anne Elizabeth
Princess Beatrice Elizabeth Mary
Princess Eugenie Victoria Helena
Lady Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary
Lady Sarah Frances Elizabeth
Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana
Savannah Anne Kathleen
Isla Elizabeth
Mia Grace
Lena Elizabeth
Lady Margarita Elizabeth Rose Alleyne

The 4 that don't have Elizabeth in their names - Margaret, Eugenie, Savannah and Mia - all have sisters with Elizabeth in their names.
