As much as William loves his beloved mother, I can't imagine he would want to burden his baby daughter with the first name of Diana. If anything, perhaps Di's middle name 'Frances' would also be a part of his daughter's name. That would be a lovely way to honor his mother.

They should name the princess something super trendy and very "now" like Giselle or CoCo.... or even after like a designer handbag like "Prada"... I also like the name "Justice" for the princess.

I'm actually very surprised that they used both Elizabeth and Diana together.

It's a lovely name for a lovely baby.

I don't see where Diana would be a burden. Regardless of what the rest of the world thinks, for William, that's his mother's name and it's very common to name a child for their grandparent, particularly one who died early.

It will be interesting to see if they call her Charlotte or use any nickname or one of her middle names.

I love her name! It honors both grandmother and the Queen.

Elizabeth is my middle name too, it's so regal!

Now the story I saw a couple of weeks ago about how the Queen was quite fond of Diana, and there was no tension in their personal relationship has context. I remember thinking at the time, "Why does this matter?" but it all makes sense today. Very calculated move.

I love her name! I am happy they did not burden her with Diana as a first name. I think that would be a lot to put on someone in this day and age.
