Bets are on for new royal baby's name

Bets are on for new royal baby's name 

The new royal is imminent and we now know that the latest prince or princess will be born in the Lindo wing, like Prince George, but speculation is spreading about whether he'll be getting a little brother or sister and what royal name he/she will be given.


PaperShaker has collated some of the strongest possiblities in names potentially given to the Duchess of Cambridge's new baby. Elizabeth, Charlotte, James and Arthur are all topping the list. As an April baby, Cambridge Junior the second is set to be determined, tenacious and confident.

For a boy:

Arthur: The obvious King with his Round Table. Arthur's tend to be strong-willed, creative and outgoing.

James: has strong royal roots, with two previous kings sharing his name which is very popular in the UK, rarely leaving the top 10. James' are typically inventive, courageous, determined, original and creative, but can be easily bored and not finish every task that he starts.

For a girl:

Elizabeth: with the obvious connection to her great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother who were both named Elizabeth. Elizabeths love to share, and personal relationships are really important to them – which is good news for Prince George when it comes to games in the royal nursery!

Charlotte: Has royal roots, with King George III's wife as a namesake and as a female diminutive of Charles. More on the reserved side, Charlottes are inwardly sure of themselves and always stick to their principles.
