Click on the buttons above to generate a random baby name create from a list of all the royal baby names since 1660. Tweet your result!

Let's face it. Even if you are not a big fan of the royal family, there's a good chance you are at least a little curious if it will be a boy or a girl. And what will they name him or her?

Choosing a name can be difficult for any parents, but there's extra pressure when the newborn will be third in line for the British throne and there's an extended royal family to keep happy.

Since 1660, there have been more than 100 members of the immediate royal family. Between them, they've had about 80 names, including middle names.

This generator provides a look at some royal possibilities for the baby's name. It will generate four names using names used by the royal family since 1660. Many of the children born into the royal family, including Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince Harry and King George VI, had four names.

Some of the names on this list have fallen out of fashion. For example, the odds that William and Kate will name their baby Octavius are pretty slim, but we included them here for the sake of completion. Plus, it's more fun that way.

If the generator produces a name you like, you can tweet it using the button below the suggested name, or share it in the comments
