What Should Prince William and Kate Name Their Baby?

Share your suggestions for the royal couple's first child.

The world will again turn its attention to the royal family with the announcement Kate and Prince William are expecting their first child.

After Prince Charles and Prince William, the baby will be third in line for the throne.

"The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news," reads a statement by the Palace.

But what about naming the new royalty?

According to the U.S. Social Security Administration, the most popular baby names in Washington for girls were Sophia, Olivia, Emma, Isabella and Emily in 2011.

Mason is the most popular boys name in the Evergreen State, followed by Liam, Alexander, Jacob and Ethan.

What's your naming suggestion to the royal couple? Tell us in the comments below.

I love the name Sophia... it's my sister's name :) I think they should choose something classic... Liam or Ethan would be a good name if they have a boy!

Crib Lizard for a boy and Drool Bunny for a girl.

How about Prince if it's a boy....but not Blanket.
Sarah Weinberg December 06, 2012 at 12:19 AM
I vote for Diana for a girl, and Philip for a boy.

Whatever Lauren, you're old before your time. Let me me know next time you need assistance walking across the street old lady.

Lauren, profanity is used liberally everywhere today. It's widespread in journalism. Your Term and condition are ridiculous. Grow up and get a real job. That is why you got your degree right? Banning simple cuss words today are plain stupid and archaic. You're a dinosaur.
Brent Champaco December 11, 2012 at 10:25 AM
Don - No one is arguing that people cuss these days, but this probably isn't the venue in which to do it, just like an office meeting or my kid's preschool. Widespread in journalism? Maybe in the Stranger or Spin, but we're not thaaaat hip. A stout islander such as myself can't even wear skinny jeans. As for getting a real job, I agree 100 percent. I'm only doing this Patch thing until my rap career takes off. Once the hotness drops, I will drop the F-bomb without hesitation and with much intensity while making that cash money, playa. And when you call Lauren a dinosaur, you're making the wrong assertion. The question isn't whether she's a dinosaur, it's what kind of dinosaur she is. If she is a herbivore like a brontosaurus, then yes, feel free to throw a few jabs. But if she's a meat-eating velociraptor or T-Rex, then I would say that's pretty bad#*%. (I tried to censor myself after reading our terms of conditions) Otherwise, know that we're not trying to censor anyone with an opinion. They just have to remember not to go ape@#%^ with the profanity. We love you. Thanks for being so bad#*%.

You know the baby's going to have 4-5 names (don't ALL the royals?) but I think it would lovely if at least one of the names was Diana (for a girl) or Phillip (for a boy).

I like Brody Pierce Sterling Michael James for a boy and Cataleena for a girl.
Lauren Padgett (Editor) December 11, 2012 at 08:38 PM
I will Don, thank you! I wouldn't mind being a dinosaur, haha. I still don't think s#&!head is appropriate for our publication. I'll let you know when I'm ready to beat you at bingo :)
Brent Champaco December 11, 2012 at 10:24 PM
And I just re-read the terms and conditions, and sure enough, masked profanity isn't allowed. See what I mean?
Don December 12, 2012 at 12:16 AM
Ok, here it goes, if its a boy, Robert Black, a girl, Rose West, beautiful names from England's past. Off topic, I've been checking out pictures of Prince William and his beautiful wife Kate. Prince William is balding and not particularly good looking whereas Kate is hot. In real life women like Kate don't pick men like William unless there is something else to sweeten the pot. Being that William is a prince of England and has access to vast amounts of English pounds there may lay the reason for her crossing the line. Ain't money great!
