Kate Middleton & Prince William HAVE to Name Their Baby 'Diana' If It's a Girl

Awww! 40

kate middleton prince williamThe birth of the royal baby will be exciting and wonderful no matter what the sex turns out to be, but right now, the signs seem to point to Kate Middleton being pregnant with a baby girl.

And if she and Prince William are expecting a daughter, everyone is curious about what they will decide to call her, and in particular whether or not they will choose to name the baby Diana, in honor of Prince William's late mother.

OMG. They have to name her Diana, right?

Considering how devastating it was for Prince William to lose her at such a young age, and also how over-the-moon she would've been with the news that she had a grandchild on the way, calling the granddaughter she'll never know Diana is such a beautiful way to pay tribute to her and honor her memory.

And if Kate Middleton is really as genuine and sweet as she appears to be (she totally is), I'm sure naming her first born after a woman who had a profound influence on her husband's life crossed her mind even before she became pregnant.

I'll never forget that first interview Kate and Prince William gave right after they announced their engagement. Kate was so proud and honored that she'd been given Diana's engagement ring, and I was also struck by Prince William's comments about how giving Kate that ring was his way of making his mother a part of the engagement.

He and Kate are both so traditional and obviously love their families very deeply, so naming their baby Diana definitely wouldn't be out of character for them. I think they'll almost be eager to do it if they wind up having a daughter, like it will complete a circle or something.

And if they don't settle on Diana for the baby's first name, I don't think anyone will be the least bit surprised if they make it her middle name.

But regardless of what they call their child, I'm sure Diana will be smiling down from the heavens on them the day he or she is born. (Oh, how she would've loved to be there.)

Do you think Kate and Prince William should choose the name Diana if the baby is a girl?

You don't know much about royal naming protocol do you? The Queen has final say over the name, it has to be a name that isn't attached to scandal or shame and it must not be currently used within the royal family.

The first two rules pretty much mean that Diana will not be the baby's first name.

I can see it being a middle name though.

Im sorry i didn't read the whole article because the first two sentences pissed me off badly . They do NOT have to name their child anything that they do not want . Is their baby and they are the only ones who can choose the baby's name . Im sorry his mom died and all but they shouldnt have to feel obligated to name their baby diana if they dont want to

Maybe it will be her middle name, but I doubt it. The girl needs her own identity.

If a girl, diana will be her middle name. If its a boy and they have a girl as a second child, diana will be her first name.

OMG LIKE TOTALLY no. They dont' have to do anything. I actually think it's kind of a tacky idea.

And I agree with pinkmani, she should have her own identity. I know I would hate to have that kind of pressure to live up to such a famous and beloved name.

Like I've said before, who cares
