    I'm so lame and so excited about this . I just ADORE Kate.

    I definitely think they will go a traditional route. If I was picking from the above lists I would say Sophie and Oliver.

    My personal suggestions for them are Evelyn and Henry.

    For a girl I'm betting Elizabeth Diana but I'm stumped on boy names.

    I will join the dorky club that is excited about this. For a girl I agree with Elizabeth Diana. For a boy I think Edward, Henry, or another family name. I do think though that they should be able to choose what ever name they want even if it is not traditional.

    Well, boy or girl (s)he will no doubt have an inherited name, especially the first name. I mean, it's the tradition of royalty especially when the baby will be the future king or queen.

    Diana is really the only name that's kind of un-royal, KWIM?

    Princess Anne named her daughter Zara. I guess you can do that when you're fourth in line and only going to get bumped down when your brothers have babies. And I'm glad they're changing that rule.

    Since Prince Edward's wife's name is Sophie I doubt they would go that route. For a girl I think Elizabeth, William is close to his Granny and Katherine and her mother's middle names are Elizabeth. I actually suggested it to hubby on the day of their wedding.

    See I figured they would stay away from Elizabeth or Diana. Maybe a variant like Beth or Bethany though.

    Had no idea what Edward's wife is named so I guess Sophie is out.

    I agree they should name whatever but I picture them as picking traditional.

    I think Victoria and Anne are beautiful, though when your name is like 4 or 5 names long, you can pretty much get whatever you want in there.
