Kate Middleton's Baby Name Might Honor Princess Diana in an Unexpected Way

Kate Middleton

The odds of us finding out Kate Middleton's baby gender before the little prince or princess actually makes his or her arrival are slim to none, but the word on the street is that she and Prince William are expecting a baby girl. I know. The idea of a mini-Kate wandering around Kensington Palace in designer duds to match her fabulous mum is almost too exciting to think about.


And if Kate and Wills do wind up adding a daughter to their family, everyone wants to know if the baby will be named after Princess Diana.

I mean, how could they not call her Diana?!? Right from the start of their engagement, it was clear that they wanted Wills' late mother to be a part of their lives even though she is not with them on Earth anymore.

It just makes so much sense for them to want to honor her by passing on her name to their second child. But considering the traditional route they went with Prince George, giving the baby the name Diana might be a bit too mainstream. (George is WAY more old school.)

But a new report suggests they might choose to name the baby after Diana in a different way by using Diana's middle name, Frances, in lieu of her first name.

Hmm. Princess Frances. It's a little bit of a mouthful, but sort of has a nice ring to it, don't you think?

Of course, they could opt to honor Queen Elizabeth with the baby's moniker and leave Diana out altogether, but something tells me there's no way she won't be part of the child's name in some way, shape, or form. Hmm. Elizabeth Diana is a beautiful and traditional combination; plus, it gives a shout out to both Wills' granny and his wonderful mum. (Can't go wrong there.)

What do you think the baby will be called?
