What’s in a Name? The Royal Baby’s Possible Monikers

Kate Middleton, Royal Baby, Prince William, Elizabeth, Diana, crownA novel game of Name That Baby has swept the UK this month as the imminent birth of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s first child has Brits flocking to gambling sites, casting their predictions for the royal tot’s name along with its sex, hair color and future profession. Many have wagered that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will honor Will’s beloved mum by christening their little one Diana or that they’ll honor Her Majesty with the perennially in vogue Elizabeth, while others have bet the royal couple will shake things up with an offbeat moniker such as Chardonnay.

The top contenders in the betting pool tend toward the conventional—no Blue Ivys, Norths or Chardonnays here. Many of the frontrunners have already made multiple appearances in the family tree, as is customary in royal circles. But there’s more to these names and the legacies they carry than the familial figures who bore them in the past. Here’s a look at what some of these top contenders mean:

Alexandra: This is the feminine form of the name Alexander, which combines the Greek words alexein or “to defend” with aner, “man, warrior,” resulting in the common translation “defender of men.” The feminine form gained popularity in Britain in the late 1800s due to Queen Alexandra, wife of Edward VII. Alexandra is also one of the Queen’s middle names.

Charlotte: This name derives from the masculine name Charles, which is from Middle High German Karl meaning “man, husband.” It’s also one of Auntie Pippa’s middle names (and as a delicious bonus, a dessert cake made with custard or whipped cream and fruit).

Elizabeth: In addition to being the name of the royal baby’s great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother (and Kate’s middle name), Elizabeth is a pious name that translates from the Hebrew Elishebha to mean “God is an oath.”

Diana: This name comes from Roman mythology in which Diana was the goddess of the moon and of hunting, characterized by beauty and chastity. The first part of this name, “Di,” is thought to be the same as Roman god Dionysus, the Greek god of fertility. Diana shares its root dyeu- meaning “to shine” with the Greek father of gods, Zeus.

James: James is derived from the Hebrew name Jacob or Yaakov, which means “heel-grabber” or “supplanter.” This meaning comes from the Book of Genesis in which Jacob grabs the heel of his older twin brother Esau as they exit their mother’s womb and enter the world. Jacob later tricks his father into blessing him as firstborn instead of Esau. In Genesis 27:36, Esau says: “Is he not rightly named Jacob? for he has supplanted me these two times.” Kate Middleton’s brother is also named James.

George: This name translates to “farmer,” from the Greek georgos, from ge or “earth” and ergein “to work.” It is also the name of the patron saint of England, celebrated for his valor in a widely told legend in which he slays a dragon for a Libyan king’s promise to have his subjects baptized. 

Of course the Duke and Duchess could break with tradition and go with soccer megastar (and UK royalty of another variety) David Beckham’s suggestion to name it after him. A restrained proposition coming from a man whose children are named Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz. Maybe by not suggesting they name the child Windsor or Montague he’s trying to live up to his name, which means “darling, beloved friend.”

Which of these is your favorite? Do you like the sound of Princess Chardonnay? What do you think Will and Kate will name their bundle of joy?

    Thank you so much to Melanie for that last comment. I hate it when people diss on leaders (and that includes our President, people. ) You’ve never met these people, and the way the tabloids blow everything out of proportion is just amazing (and not in a good way). We can ooh and ahh all we want, but really, WE DON’T EVEN LIVE IN THIER COUNTRY.

    I repeat my previous good grief…..

    I can understand those poeple who don’t care either way, but for those who are posting questions of integrity of the royal fmaily, I agree with Melanie that this is not the place to do it. We have Facebook for that….

    There’s my two cents…

    Look everyone.

    It’s not up to us what the baby’s name will be, and in the end, it shouldn’t matter. All that matters is that it is a healthy, happy baby, which I’m sure it will be regardless if it’s name is Janice or Diana or Edmund or whatever =)

    And for those who post that they don’t care or that the whole Royal family is stupid along with British people…like, ok, you’re entitled to your opinions, but this isn’t really the place and time to hate on the world =) Take it somewhere else please, and don’t offend any one nationality. You can’t say one is filled with all terrible people, but I’m 100% sure you haven’t met every single one.

    Thank you for your time <3
    And take that unnecessary hate someplace out for the sake of those who are actually excited about this =)

    Since the baby is a boy, he most probably will be named by one of the ancestors’ names of Her Majesty’s father George and Charles could be an other of the baby’s grandfather, and adding an other name of the Duchess’ ancestors. William is a stronger name as well. Definitely, and hopefully an English name would suit more than a foreign one. This baby needs a combinations of strong names.

    My son’s names are cool (of course I think that, I named him that!), but I also like the idea of a more unique and non-traditional first name with more traditional middle names.

    Damien (means: to tame – it does not mean THE DEVIL!)
    Braelynn (is a Gaelic form of Brian, “high, noble”)
    Arthur (I think is a great name choice!)
    Tristen/Drysten (Welsh/Celtic name)
    Dillon/Dylan (From the Welsh elements dy “great” and llanw “tide, flow”. In Welsh mythology Dylan was a god or hero associated with the sea.)
    Gwilim/Gwillym (Welsh version of William)
    Edric (From Old English ead “rich, blessed” and ric “ruler”)
    Theodoric (From a Germanic name meaning “ruler of the people”, derived from the elements þeud “people” and ric “power, ruler”)
    Sebastian (Meaning derived from a town name meaning “venerable”)
    Edwin (Means “rich friend” from the Old English elements ead “rich, blessed” and wine “friend”)
    Sorin (Possibly derived from Romanian soare meaning “sun”)

    Just a couple suggestions! : )

    Kong? Grow up to be King Kong? Hey-Zeus Marimba! I thought I’d watch the news. Some people go to school to learn Investigative Journalism to bring really important issues to the “huddled masses”. Today, interesting for about 30 sec., I needed to learn the stroller make, cost, and model, the slow gene pool has plopped out. No, it’s not a stroller, it’s a “cart”. It’s not a diaper, but a “nappy” and the pacifier is a “dummy”, and I feel like one giving this info about the uk’s that make fun of people in the USA. History lessons: The royals have always engaged historically, in infidelity. The father of this child is within the slow gene pool, But, Diana seems to have had the last laugh. Where did the curly hair come from on the other son? The face has features that appear so much like some other man she “did the deed” with: Thanks Diana! These people love starving the Irish to death, not to mention what the truth about the Crusades, Bloody Mary, and the Scottish folk don’t have much of a grin about the uk. So funny, they make fun of Americans, but weren’t the Pilgrims from the uk? Now, on to how their space program is going. I’m part Native American, Irish and German. That is a tendency in the USA.

At least don’t make the kid suffer with an ugly vintage name that sounds like a granny name.

    I think Scout would be a cute name – maybe Scout Elizabeth?
    For a boy I’m not sure – but David is a nice name, or Andrew maybe.

    Perhaps they could name the kid India or Ireland or that of some nation whose people the British bled every tangible penny and endeavored to erase any trace of native culture, language and worth.

    I think it is time to honour the English Queens of old such as Maude, Elanor, Boadicea or the legendary Guinivere. Failing that what about Catherine after its mother or Adelaide, perhaps Mary after Williams great grandmother. That is if it a girl.

    If a boy the English Kings of old such as Harold, Stephen (the little known Louie perhaps), Arthur etc

    It was not born yet but a one woman already died. I think Satan or Satana would be nice.

    Grace, Alexandria, Elizabeth,
    She needs her own name plus a few royal names to keep it all in the family.

    I’d like to see them use the name Alexandra Elizabeth or Alexandra Diana if its a girl, and James William or David James if its a boy. I would hate to see them go with a silly name, but something not ‘royal’ would be ok.

    If it’s a girl, I think they will name her after her paternal grandmother. William would be happy to bring a future Queen Diana into the world.

    My money is on Edward or Edwina. It’s time the Emerald Isle had a good Edward – the name has been besmirched by #VII, who squandered the royal purse, and by #VIII, who abdicated for the love of, horrors, an American and a divorcée at that. Anyway last time I looked mom and dad had long legs, like #I, AKA Longshanks and the Hammer of the Scots – and Beckham notwithstanding, who could ask for a better forebearer?

    It’s Howard all the way or possibly Hortensia if you are into gardening.

    Cayman Islands:- It would be a great honor to not only to the baby’s parents but also to the baby’s grand-parents, if its a girl, to be named Elizabeth Diana. We can all call her Princess Liz or Lady Liz.

    I hope they stick to a more traditional but less used name, an actual prince/future king named Arthur would be pretty awesome.
