Prince William is gearing up to be a father as the Palace has confirmed that Kate Middleton is pregnant!

To help the royal couple out, we have come up with baby boy names and baby girl names that are fit for a future king or queen.

Are you ready for a royal baby name bonanza? Kate Middleton has a royal bun in the oven — and this time the rumors are official, as the Palace confirmed her pregnancy in a statement:

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby. The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news.“

The already thin Duchess is dealing with acute morning sickness, however, and is in the hospital.

“The Duchess was admitted this afternoon to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with Hyperemesis Gravidarum,“ the statement from the Palace said. “As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in the hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter.“

As she recuperates, we have some great baby name suggestions for her!

Baby names fit for a King

If the royal baby is a boy, the couple may consider naming their son William — or perhaps Charles, after Prince William’s father.

More than likely, however, the couple will use one of the above names as a middle name and choose a different first name for their royal baby. The royal family often opts for traditional names over trendy names, so the following boy names are all great choices:

The couple has embraced popular culture, so perhaps one of these cool preppy names will catch their eye?

Baby names fit for a Queen

If the Duchess is pregnant with a girl, the most obvious choice is to name her Diana, after Prince William’s mother. Diana would also make a lovely middle name, as well.

Elizabeth is another traditional royal family name that they may decide to pass on as a first or middle name. We also love the following classic baby girl names for a future Queen:

We doubt they will name her after Aunt Pippa, however the following girl names are vintage and chic, yet a bit more modern:
