Next Up: What Will Kate And William Name The Royal Baby

Still A Rumor

will4Now that the royal baby has finally arrived, the next big question is what will be the name for the boy that will one day rule as King?

Odds makers in Britain have George has the leading moniker, followed by James.

There have been six previous reigning Georges.

The first Scottish king to rule the British empire was King James so that would be a nice tip of the hat to Scotland, where William and Kate met as college co-eds at St. Andrews University there.

Whatever names William and Kate decide upon, the Queen and the boy's grandfather Prince Charles will have a say in the matter. The couple have a limited number of traditional names to draw from, including Arthur, Michael, Edward, Alexander, Louis and Albert.

In other words, there's no chance of a Prince Jayden.

And it could be some time before we know what name to call the royal son.  It was seven days before the Prince Charles and Princess Diana revealed that they had chosen William as the name for their firstborn - apparently Charles very much wanted the name Arthur instead. But when Prince Harry was born he was named immediately. His actual name is Prince Henry but he was nicknamed Harry for short.
