Seeing as the child will be placed after Prince William in the line of succession and therefore will be an heir, it's almost 100% certain that his/her name will be top-traditional.
First name: They could choose to go with the ultra traditional names like George, Richard or Edward; Elizabeth, Victoria or Mary. Or they could go with more uncommon yet traditional names like Arthur, Philip, Alexander or Albert; Charlotte, Matilda, Alexandra or Margaret. My money are on either George or Arthur, or Elizabeth, Margaret or Victoria.
"Middle names": As with (almost) every royal baby, the secondary names are probably going to get used to honour family members. A strong contender in my opinion is Francis/Frances, in a girls name being a replacement for Diana. Frances was Diana's middle name and Francis is Michael Middleton's middle name. Francis furthermore has a royal connection in that the father of Queen Mary, the grandmother of Her Majesty the Queen, was Francis, the Duke of Teck. Family names used could be, for a boy: Charles, Louis, Michael, James, Arthur or Philip, for a girl: Elizabeth, Margaret, Anne, Alice, Diana, Alexandra, Carole/Caroline or Mary.
My (first) guesses for a boy:
George Charles Arthur Philip
Arthur Charles Philip Francis
George Philip Arthur Michael
Alexander Philip Arthur George (long-shot)
Albert Michael Charles Philip (long-shot)
My (first) guesses for a girl:
Elizabeth Alice Caroline Frances
Elizabeth Carole Mary Diana
Margaret Caroline Frances Elizabeth
Victoria Carole Diana Elizabeth
Alexandra Elizabeth Caroline Frances (long-shot)
Mary Elizabeth Carole Diana (long-shot)
Alice Diana Elizabeth Carole (long-shot)
