It's going to be hard to name it--there were far better choices for a girl available.
Of the possible names:
George: This is Charles' almost certain regnal name, so would they want two Georges in the close royal family at once?
Edward: There's already a royal Prince Edward who is William's uncle. Same with Andrew.
Henry: Already taken by William's brother (do we want two Price Harrys?). Plus, the last King Henry was Henry VIII.
John: Considered an unlucky name for English royals--the only King John was the worst king in English history.
Richard: The last two Richards, Richard II and Richard III, were also legendarily unpopular kings.
Louis: A favorite family name, but it's so associated with the French (the UK's traditional rival), it's unlikely as a first name.
Charles: Until the queen dies, there arlready is a Prince Charles.
Arthur: William's first middle name and Charles's favorite name (and the name of one of Victoria's sons), but how would he be numbered/ The first King Arthur is half-historical, half-legendary.
So I predict James or Michael for a first name, because they are both names from Pippa's nuclear family and James has a precedent among previous kings (and James, the Viscount Severn is so obscure and distantly related to this baby no one will confuse them) and is the name of Cate's brother, or Michael, which has precedent in the family (Prince Michael of Kent--again, too obscure to be confusing) and is the name of Cate's father.
Other possible alternatives with previous royal family precedent: Stephen, Alfred, Albert, Victor, Leopold. And my personal favorite, Octavius.

What the kid is called in the family, what he is called in public, and what he is called after becoming King are often different names.
King Edward VIII was "David" in the Windsor family.
I think Edward would be a fine regnal name, his uncle be damned. Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, will likely be dead anyway before this new Prince assumes the throne.
