Here’s a list of some literary-inspired names that William & Kate may choose for their new bundle of royal joy.
Elizabeth, nickname “Lizzy”
- Either after the Queen or the Bennet, Elizabeth is a strong, British name.
- Charles Dicken’s character from “Great Expectations” is a pro at breaking hearts, and I think William & Kate’s little girl will be also (but hopefully not so bitchy.)
- Even though “Little Women” is am American novel, this main character is strong willed and therefore worthy to share a name with the royal baby girl. (And you know I love my opinionated Tom boys!)
- From “Terms of Endearment,” or “Sleeping Beauty.” Either way, it’s heavenly. Literally, she was the Roman goddess of sunrise.
- For William’s dad or Mr. Dickens, Charles is always a solid, classic choice.
- It may be Germanic in origin, but it does mean “famous ruler,” which is suiting. “Roderick Hudson,” by American author Henry James, features the main character who is a talented sculptor.
- As in Mrs. Norris from “Mansfield Park.” Yes, a boy named after a female character. How progressive!
- Either from Shakespeare or “The Little Mermaid,” this is a strong name of Greek origin meaning “revered,” which he certainly will be.
