Update 4/27/18: The new prince's name is Louis Arthur Charles, officially Prince Louis of Cambridge. He is 5th in the line of succession to the British throne.
What are the best Kate Middleton baby names? Princess Kate is pregnant, and the world is now eagerly awaiting the birth of the next royal baby! What do you think Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, should name their third child? What if Kate Middleton has twins? This list includes a lot of traditional names, not surprisingly, but feel free to add any names that you'd like (boys or girls, since we don't know what she's having yet). What are the most likely Will & Kate baby names?
In September 2017, word got out that, yes, Kate Middleton is indeed pregnant with her third child. Married since 2011, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge expressed interest in starting a family early. In July 2013, they welcomed their first child, Prince George Alexander Louis, who immediately became third in line of succession to the British throne, after his grandfather and father. Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was born in May 2015 and is fourth in line for the throne.
Some popular Kate Middleton royal baby names are actually family names, whether from Katherine's side or Prince William's side. Kate's mother's name is Carole, for example, so it's not out of the question that the royal couple would choose that name for a baby girl. And certainly, Elizabeth is a possibility (think William's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth). Kate and William could also choose to name their first born daughter after Princess Diana, one of the most beloved royals ever.
What if Prince William and Kate Middleton have a baby boy? Again, tradition rules: Names like Charles (William's father), Edward and certainly William would no doubt be popular choices for Prince William baby names, the next royal heir. Phillip (William's grandfather's name) is certainly in the running as a royal baby name choice, as is George, John and Richard.
Again, though, this list is about what you guys think! Be sure to vote for the royal baby names you love the most, and vote down those that you don't like at all. For ideas, you can always check out Kate Middleton's family tree, too!
