shall we debate over what to call our future dictator?
WHATEVER the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge decide to call their first child, bookmakers predict it will set off a trend for baby names in the future.
• Speculation before today’s announcement on the royals’ first child had already begun
• William and Kate’s first child will be third in line to the throne
Speculation as to what they might name their first child began even before Kate was pregnant with predictions posted ranging from Mary and Matilda to Edmund and George on the mumsnet website before their wedding.
Royal youngsters are mostly given safe, historical names which are passed down through the monarchy such as James, Edward, Charles, George, Mary and Elizabeth.
William and Kate will also be mindful of choosing a name that befits a future King or Queen. This royal baby will be born third in line to the throne.
