    I would love to see William's name in the mix.

    I would like to see them use Richard, especially as this was the year the positively identified the remains of King Richard III, a much maligned king who in fact did a lot of good.

    The story that he murdered his two nephews (the Princes in the Tower) was most likely fabrication. All the rumors about him didn't start circulating until after he was defeated in battle by Henry VII, and it's now widely believed it was propaganda spread by Henry VII and those who served him, as the English people liked Richard III as he was a good king. Henry VII had to win over this subjects and creating falsehoods about Richard III was the best way to do this.

    The truth is though, he was a very good, well-respected King, who was an early social reformer. For example, he e implemented changes in the legal system at the time, allowing poorer people to be able to seek justice through the courts, something that previously was reserved for those who could afford it. This is fact.

    However, because of the unproven stories about him, the name Richard has been one of the "forbidden" names in the royal family ever since.

    I think it would be fitting, in the year his remains were identified (meaning he can now finally have a burial fit for a former King of England), to bring the name back into the fold. It would be a great tribute to someone who was, in reality, an excellent King who cared for his people.

    Is Andrew a possibility? Will and Kate met and graduated from St. Andrews after all.
