    The Royal Baby was born ! Sound the trumpet ! What do you think he will be named ?!

    He's supposed to be named after one of his royal ancestors. So, bookies are making bets on Henry, George, David , Richard, Edward, Thomas, William , Charles, etc.

    Yes he has been named , and one day he will be king George V111, as his grandfather Charles is expected to use the title King George V11

    I'm betting Spencer will be added somewhere in the name.

    I agree, what a wonderful tribute this could have been to his late mother.
    Deleted User

    They wouldn't do that ... What <censored> me is this poor boy hasn't been able to do anything to tribute his mother without the royals watching over his shoulder. I wonder if they had a choice what they would have called him really. Probably Luke or Benny ...

    This time around, Kate and Wills are not bound by tradition or protocol , the baby Prince  can be named  what ever they choose and did you know the baby Prince will not have a Nanny, Kate will look after the baby herself , just as Diana had done with Wills.

    bullet, that's good. So, they'll probably pick some trendy name, like Brookes, or Jude.My great nephew's name is Jude. His sister's name is Elle......pronouced El . BTW, Wills had a nanny . They fired the first one, b/c his behavior was getting to be a bit much. Charles said in an interview that a toy truck went whizzing by him ...thrown by Wills. There was a cute photograph back then of the queen herself chasing after Wills in public b/c he was running around. They said she was P.O.ed at his nanny. Maybe Harry didn't have a nanny.

    .George ?

    Bob/PKB

    George: meaning "farmer, earthworker"
    ROMOS

    George Alexander Louis.

    How about Jr.?

    I think Richard, Prince Richard of Cambridge and one day King Richard IV , I think that would sound great.

    I can almost bet it will not be latrell, tyrone, rufus, latrick....

    Bob/PKB

    This is the best laugh I've had in days, zorro. You are a hoot!

    It would be nice if they picked a name they wanted for their son with no regard to what is expected of them.  The names we hear so often have the following meanings: 

    Henry:  In English the meaning of the name Henry is: Rules his household.
    George:  meaning "farmer, earthworker"
    Richard:  Richard derives from German, French, and English "ric" (ruler, leader, king) and "hard" (strong, brave), and it therefore means "powerful leader"
    David:  In Welsh the meaning of the name David is: Beloved or friend, from the Hebrew.
    Edward:  is an English given name. It is derived from Old English words ead (meaning 'wealth', 'fortune' or 'prosperous') and weard (meaning 'guardian' or 'protector').
    Thomas:  is of Aramaic origin, and the meaning of Thomas is "twin".
     William:  The meaning of William is "determined protector"
    Charles:   free man, strong

    Personally, I like Andrew (strong and manly) and Alan (handsome and cheerful)  
    Whatever they choose, I hope it's not something "Hollywood" like "Plum, Jupiter, Soccer, or Zircon".  

    Just heard it's George, so one day he will be King George the 7th.


    Surely a most boring and predictable name.

    At least he has the right to change his name if he should become King. Hopefully he chooses a less boring and predictable name.

    He will be George V111 , as Prince Charles is intending to use the title George V11
    nomdeplume

    Royals seem to have a surplus of names, for instance George 6 was Albert Frederick, Arthur George, and his brother Edward 8 was Edward, Christian, George, Andrew, Patrick, David, and both were Saxe-Coburg Gotha.

    Fred, or Kevin, or Zac,I suggest because with a bit of luck and a lot of sense from the British people the monarchy will be abolished by the time he comes to the throne.

    sunnyB

    I don't think that will ever happen, well I hope not anyway.
    Bob/PKB

    FRED: English form of a Germanic name meaning "peaceful ruler"
    KEVIN: The meaning of Kevin is "kind, gentle, comely (handsome, beautiful) at birth".
    ZAC: means "God has remembered".
