The stork is circling the grounds of Kensington Palace as we patiently await the arrival of Harry and Meghan’s first baby. Due at the end of April, the rumour mill is working overtime as people place their predictions at what name Harry and Meghan will give to the Queen’s eighth great-grandchild.
As it would appear our invite to Meghan’s baby shower went missing in the mail, we decided to play our own game of the Guess the Baby Name. We invited representatives from our research and Ancestry Progenealogists teams to place their predictions, using names from Harry and Meghan’s family trees as inspiration. Check out their guesses below, and add your own suggestions to the comments!
What’s in a name? Only time will tell!
Charles Alvin Windsor has a lovely ring to it! Ancestry ProGenealogist, Joanne Doyle has predicted that Harry and Meghan will give a nice little nod to Prince Charles, while also celebrating Meghan’s African American Roots.
Jenn Utley, Director of Family History Research at Ancestry, is confident that the couple will use names from Harry’s family tree and recognise Prince Philip with a namesake.
Our first nod to Diana! A lovely rationale from Joanne Penn on our Ancestry ProGenealogists team on how the royal couple might turn to their family trees for inspiration.
Ancestry family history researcher, Mellisa Betts is putting her ‘bet’ on Mary Louise Diana – choosing names that are specifically shared across both of the couples family trees.
We’re loving this prediction from Michelle Ercanbrack on Ancestry’s research team, who’s put a modern twist on a lovely nod to Diana.
