Can we leave Margaret Thatcher in peace for a wee while, please?

Bags Thu 11-Apr-13 12:47:41

Preferably forever!

Tarquin the First!

I think Malarky Cruz has a special royal ring to it don't you?

Assuming it's a boy of course. grin

Elizabeth and Diana are surely a good bet if its a girl. not sure about boys names , possibly phillip or Charles. it would be nice if they bucked tradition and went for something modern x

soop Thu 11-Apr-13 12:52:07

Apparently, odds are on child being female. Also, Alexandra is top of the polls. smile

gillybob Thu 11-Apr-13 12:54:34

Oh how boring... I think they will break with tradition and go for something quite chavy modern.

Actually I don't give a stuff. Can't stand any of 'em. grin

What about Little Willy after his dad?

Gorki Thu 11-Apr-13 14:00:15

Probably Victoria

LullyDully Thu 11-Apr-13 14:23:52

After the Beckhams. On that vain Anglesey.

Ella46 Thu 11-Apr-13 14:34:40

Mice No little boy wants to be called 'Little Willy!' grin as you well know

gilly trouble is modern at the moment often means retro i.e. Arthur or Mary. Not to say I don't like those but I too hope they move away from the usual royal names.

glammanana Thu 11-Apr-13 17:25:39

Even though they are a modern couple with up to date tastes they will probably go down the traditional route with maybe George or Victoria it would be nice to see a change in tradition though maybe Christina or Christian.

Ana Thu 11-Apr-13 17:27:02

I'm betting on Kylie or Wayne...wink

Grannyeggs Thu 11-Apr-13 17:35:45

I think Alexandra or Victoria will definitely be on the cards, and George or Edward. They seem pretty conventional to me so I'm sure there will be no surprises.

Movedalot Thu 11-Apr-13 17:49:10

How about Anglesey? Following the trend for where baby was conceived?

gillybob Thu 11-Apr-13 17:54:35

Oh yes Anglesey is perfect for a boy or a girl Moved can even be shortened to Angle or Sley (at school or whateva) can just see it ....

"Angle, come in and get yer dinner, nana and grandad are here"


merlotgran Thu 11-Apr-13 17:54:52

Or Mustique?

annodomini Thu 11-Apr-13 17:56:01

Almost inevitably Elizabeth will figure somewhere in the name. A boy - Darren or Wayne?

merlotgran Thu 11-Apr-13 17:56:38

Or Trolley Dolly in honour of the maternal grandmother's former job?

gillybob Thu 11-Apr-13 17:56:45

Well that's a hard one to shorten merlotgran

Musty perhaps? or Teek ? smile

gillybob Thu 11-Apr-13 17:58:03

My daughter was known as Plum by some of her friends and Bo Bo by her older brother. He still calls her it much to her annoyance.

Ana Thu 11-Apr-13 18:20:22

Well, it can't be very nice being referred to as 'it'! grin

Gally Thu 11-Apr-13 18:22:25

My in-laws referred to DD2 as IT for a long time after she was born until I blew a gasket one day and said 'she's b* * * *y called Georgie' shock

gillybob Thu 11-Apr-13 18:23:29

Well spotted Ana grin

She does have a heck of a lot of hair and could be known as "it" by her cousins.

gillybob Thu 11-Apr-13 18:24:34

.....and was she Gally ? confused
