I'm a huge royalist so I'm totally looking forward to a new royal baby! Given the names they can realistically use, I would love to see something like Victoria Adelaide Diana Catherine or Victoria Elizabeth Diana Catherine for a girl. Something from a historical royal like Eleanor, Adelaide, Helena, Charlotte or Caroline would be interesting. I'm not particularly fond of most "royal" boys' names but would love Arthur, Edward and/or William. I doubt it'll happen but I've been liking Alfred lately too.~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3

Matilda. As I mentioned in the 'royal baby'-thread, Empress Matilda was the first female ruler of England (though she was never crowned Queen and merely was called 'Lady of the English'). It would be nice to honour her considering that she never really was a Queen, and the name is modern again, so they could keep in style with time.
For secondary names (since technically, royals don't have middle names), I hope they'll stir clear of Diana references. Not that I have the slightest thing against her, just that I'm not fond of any of her names (neither Diana nor Frances, though Frances is the lesser of two evils). I'd love to see the Princess Royal honoured as well as Caroline being used (as a more regal version of Catherine's mothers name, Carole). Another namesake could be Alexandra (for Queen Alexandra, wife of Edward VII), Mary (for Queen Mary, wife of George V), Marina (for Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark, wife of George, the Duke of Kent), Alice (for Princess Alice of Battenberg, mother of the Duke of Edinburgh), Philippa (for the Duke of Edinburgh and Philippa Middleton) and Margaret (for Princess Margaret).
Overall, I think I would name a future Queen of the United Kingdom: Matilda Caroline Margaret Anne or Matilda Caroline Alexandra Mary, can't decide between the two.
Other names: Alexandra Elizabeth Margaret Rose (it would be such a lovely tribute to Princess Margaret to use both of her beautiful names), Alice Marina Caroline Victoria, Victoria Elizabeth Philippa Mary, Anne Philippa Elizabeth Matilda or Mary Alexandra Caroline Alice.
What I think a little Princess will be called: Matilda Caroline Frances Elizabeth or Eleanor Caroline Philippa Elizabeth.
