If Not Diana, Then What? 25 Name Suggestions for the New Royal Baby
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
As the baby countdown gets underway with the commencement of Kate's maternity leave, speculation abounds as to the baby's intended name. According to People.com, British bookmakers are betting on girl names such as Alice (noble) and Elizabeth (God is my oath). For boys, James (supplanter) and Arthur (bear) are the frontrunners. Below I present my picks for both girl and boy names for the royal-infant-to-be.
In my Huffington post article 8 Reasons Why William and Kate Should Not Name Their Daughter Diana (01-28-2015), I suggested six baby girl names based on tradition:
Louisa Victoria (warrior, conquerer)
Mary-Elizabeth Alice (bitter sea, God is my oath, noble)
Marie Caroline (bitter sea, beautiful), Victoria Frances (conquerer, free)
Elizabeth Leona (God is my oath, lion)
Julia Marie (youthful, bitter sea)
Trendy suggestions included Charlotte Amelia (free, excel) and Chloe Elizabeth (verdant, God is my oath). Of course, Camilla (perfect) is a no-no.
