What do you think of the name Lilibet for Harry and Meghan's baby

Littlebit doesn't sound Royal to me, maybe that's the point?

It's the Queen's nickname, the Duke, her husband called her that. Bad choice imo.
[@868864,HannahSky] I'd also understand Lilly but why Lilibet?

[@619287,Jwalker] I think they're calling her Lily.. Idk I feel like the name is special to the Queen. Only her husband could call her that.

[@619287,Jwalker] It was Princess Margaret’s way of saying Elizabeth when she was little.
An attempt to curry favour with senior royals at a time when the pair of them are persona non grata.
According to some royal analysts.

Sounds like cryptocurrency
It's queen lizzy's nickname
Like a drunken rendering of Elizabeth.

I like the name Lilibet. Short for Elizabeth, and even shorter, Lili.

I agree - it hardly sounds regal, but they've given all that up now haven't they??? I guess if she doesn't like it she could shorten it to "Lili".

Unnecessarily sucking-up to HM?! Then again celebs need to find unusual names for their kids just to stay in the news, don't they?!

Lilibet has been our Queen’s nickname since she was little
[@561899,BalmyNites] I did not know that.

[@619287,Jwalker] Yes, derivative of Elizabeth

The Queen’s father, King George V1, gave her the nickname Lilibet because she couldn’t say Elizabeth when she was tiny

Her husband, Prince Philip, continued to call her Lilibet for the rest of their lives together 💙
