Royal baby: Share your predictions!

With William and Kate’s firstborn due to arrive some time soon, speculation is running rampant. Will it be a girl or a boy? What will the future king or queen be named?

Well, I think it’s time to share my predictions — and ask for yours.

GENDER: Everyone seems to be thinking (or hoping) it’s a girl. I’ve thought so since day one, so I will stick with that prediction.

THE FIRST NAME: Originally my guesses were Elizabeth for a girl and James for a boy. Right now my favorite choices are Charlotte and Henry. (But if Elizabeth or James is chosen, I reserve the right to say "I told you so" just the same!)

Runner-up possibilities, perhaps less likely but possible and interesting: Michael and Alice.

British royal children can have three or more names. I have no doubt that if this baby a girl, Diana will be one of her names.

WHAT I HOPE: I hope it will be a girl named Princess Diana. There seems to be a general belief that the Queen would not approve of this choice, but you never know. The Queen surely approves of good publicity for the royal family, and Diana would be a popular choice. And Prince William has a history of getting his own way when it comes to honoring his mother.

OK, those are my predictions and wishes. What are yours?

UPDATE: As everyone now knows, the baby was born on July 22, and is a boy named George Alexander Louis. So most of our predictions did not come true. Congratulations to Tracy, who correctly guessed that Louis would be one of the names, and to William E. Chappell III for picking the correct birth date!

I predict a girl

Name: Victoria or Alexandra (or both!) I also think Mary might be in there somewhere. Victoria mainly because there doesn’t seem to be anyone with that first name in the family and it is also extremely regal! 🙂

If it is a boy, I would suspect James or Michael as possibilities. People have mentioned George but I think it is just so old fashioned sounding.

One of the Queen Mother’s name was Marguerite. I think that would be a sweet way to honor Her.
