Thread: Royal Baby

Charlotte's birth then later told a friend that he'd only ever had sex with his wife 3 times. No one would've expected a male heir from then on.
Prince Frederick was long since sperated from his wife, who was well past child bearing age anyway, and the DoC's wife was looking less and less likely to produce a live, healthy heir. So, no, it wasn't expected from the word go, but for the daughter of the fourth son- they certainly kept her in mind. Why else would the Prince Regent try to have much say in her name and her upbringing? And why else would Prince Edward have his heavily pregnant wife rush back to England just days before Victoria's birth?
ETA: Damn, missed shvibziks' response too! I agree with all she said!

I feel like there's all this hype for the royal baby's name, and some people are likely to be disappointed. As shivbziks said, the monarchy is quite traditional, and the name will likely reflect that. The first name is likely to be very traditional, and then the middles will most likely honor family members. As much as I would love to have William and Catherine pull a Victoria and Daniel and have a less traditional name, I highly doubt that will happen.
I think the "royal" baby name to watch for is Zara and Mike (This baby won't really be "royal" per se, but Zara is the granddaughter of the Queen). They'll be able to have a wackier name a la Peter and Autumn's Savannah and Isla.

The name is definitely going to be traditional but I hope they pick something that will surprise us!~catalina~

I hope they'll think traditional but still out-of-the-box (the box in which George/Edward and Victoria/Elizabeth seem to be the safest bets). Personally I root for either Alexander, Arthur or Richard (and admittedly, I don't think Edward would be the worst name for them to choose), or Matilda, Eleanor, Mary or Adelaide.
On a different note, I think that Zara's baby might be a Philip/Philippa (with a strong emphasis on Philip because I think it's a boy ). Zara's supposedly very close to her grandfather (like Anne is her father's favourite child), and Mike's dad is Phil. Plus, Zara's maiden name is Phillips, how perfect can it be?Zelia/Elja • Nineteen • Name and history nerd from an early age • I have a blog.
