Post Royal Baby Names
Hi everyone, I thought you guys would give the best suggestions for royal baby names since I am expecting and due in December. I have yet to learn what the gender is, but am already starting to pick out names for both. I've already came up with the girl name which was the most fun and easiest and it's Marie-Angelique Gabrielle, but I'm having trouble with boys names. Anyone have any great ideas?

Xavier has always been a choice of mine since i was pregnant the first time 5 years ago before i knew i was having a girl, but my husband doesn't like it. I was thrilled though to learn that Louis Joseph's name also had Xavier in it too. So maybe that might change his mind since he loves France in the 18th century, and anything involving Louis XVI.

Congratulations Sillage de la Reine! I like the name Xavier. Sadly I like more English names. However I will compile a list of names from each French monarch and their wives for girls name, they're a bit odd.

The Wives of French Monarchs From the Caroligian Dynasty.

Charlemagne: (747 – 28 January 814). First Wife: Himiltrude. Second Wife: Desiderata. Third Wife: Fastrada. Fourth Wife: Luitgard.

Charles the Bald: (13 June 823 – 6 October 877). First Wife: Ermentrude. Second Wife Richilde:

Louis the Stammerer (November 1, 846 — April 10, 879. First Wife: Ansgarde of Burgundy. Second Wife Adelaide of Paris.

Carloman II (c. 866 – 12 December 884)- Wife unknown.

Charles the Fat (13 June 839 – 13 January 888)- Wife: Richgard.

Odo (or Eudes I) (c. 860 – January 1, 898)- Wife: Théodrate of Troyes.

Charles III (September 17, 879 – October 7, 929)- First Wife- Frederonne. Second Wife- Eadgifu.

Robert I: First Wife: Aelis. Second Wife: Béatrice of Vermandois.

Rudolph (died 15 January 936) : Wife Emma of France.

Louis IV: Wife(10 September 920 – 30 September 954): Gerberga of Saxony

Lothair (941 – 986): Wife Emma of Italy,

Louis V (c. 967 – 21 May 987): Adelaide of Anjou.

Capatian.

Robert II (27 March 972 – 20 July 1031): First Wife: Berengar II of Italy, Rozala. Second Wife: Constance of Arles.

Henry I (4 May 1008 – 4 August 1060): First Wife: Matilda. Second Wife:Henry I (4 May 1008 – 4 August 1060)

Louis VI (1 December 1081 – 1 August 1137: First Wife: Lucienne de Rochefort. Second Wife: Adélaide de Maurienne

Louis VII, called the Younger or the Young (French: Louis le Jeune; 1120 – 18 September 1180): First Wife: Eleanor of Aquitaine, Wife: Constance of Castile: Third Wife Adele of Champagne:

I hope this helps so far!

The most common Royal baby names, french I mean are Louis, Philippe, Charles, and Robert.

Louis XVIII's full name was Louis Stanislas-Xavier.

My name is Logan Louis Victor Francois Pierre Joseph.

Pierre may be common. I have an uncle Jean and Eudes, so maybe those names are suitable too?

Hope this helps :D

Congratulations, my birthday is in December as well(:

thanks guys, so far I like Pierre though it is pretty common in French and I've also thought of Charles too, but I realized if I use both the names Charles and Xavier... People would call him Professor X of X men. Lol. I like Philippe too. Ohh, what do you think of Louis Francis Xavier?

Congratulations, Sillage de la Reine!

And I love Louis Francis Xavier! Francois/Francis is a very nice name, I think.

it just came to me so quickly, I was thinking of all the important men in our Queen's life... her husband, her father, and her son, all together! Now I wish I had twins, really. Boy and girl...both with such regal names. Marie-Angelique Gabrielle and Louis Francis Xavier. Thanks guys, the best part of having children is naming them, because that is the first gift you can give your child so I like to select them wisely.
