Britain eagerly awaits name of new princess

Why not let the users of Britain's 1,000 (yes, that's three zeroes) food banks decide?

'Britain eagerly awaits name of new princess

Why not let the users of Britain's 1,000 (yes, that's three zeroes) food banks.

The establishment could really rub their noses in it and call her 'Prudence'.

Boomquifa or Shartzmuegul, please!

Please don't lumber the poor kid with the name Diana. And it's at least 1,000,000 people (note the six zeros) in the UK eating from food banks, not 1,000.

It's going to be Elizabeth.

I know they like the Spice Girls but I don't think they would name their child after one. My money's on Diane... not Diana but Diane... out of respect because there was only one Diana. Personally, my favourite is Sharon. Actually, I once knew a Sharon from Windsor ...Australia... nice girl.

@roosterman

Diane?? Sharon??

This is an English princess we're talking about.

She'll be Elisabeth, Victoria or Laquifa ; )

Boomquifa? Laquifa?

Is Lucabrasi playing silly buggers with double entendres or is my mind in the gutter?

@lucabrasi. I think they will pay a tribute to Australia... remember, she is also an Australian princess ( :- )...it's a koala.

No. I swear I just googled "worst girls' names". Just for fun. They're real....

Well, I'm sure she is sweet and adorable so how about Candy.

She's certainly an Australian princess.

Charlene?

Charlene? If they pronounce it in an Australian accent then 'yes' and she can be betrothed to Scott.

How about a good Scottish name to try to save our collapsing union? Is it too late in the game to call her Kirstie?

@Jim

Good idea, but a true Scots lasses' name has to be unpronounceable from a Sassenach's point of view.

She should be Seadaidh, Nighean or Magaidh, just to annoy the English.

I was more thinking along Queen Victoria but if you want to go the pop culture route... right on!

My bet is "Victoria" - traditional and classy name (Makes me think of "Victorian architecture" and queen Victoria. Not to mention the word "victoria" is Latin for "victory" - great name for a successful person). "Diana" brings rather dreadful memories involving the car accident from 1997 which was fatal to young Princess of Wales.

Makes me think of Bill Lawry and VB....I'm sure they do too ; )
