We are not just material beings, but spiritual persons with a need for meaning, purpose, and fulfillment that transcends the visible confines of this world. This longing for transcendence is a longing for truth, goodness, and beauty. Truth, goodness, and beauty are called the transcendentals of being, because they are aspects of being. Everything in existence has these transcendentals to some extent. God, of course, as the source of all truth, goodness, and beauty, has these transcendentals to an infinite degree. Oftentimes, He draws us to Himself primarily through one of these transcendentals. St. Augustine, who was drawn to beauty in all its creaturely forms, found the ultimate beauty he was seeking in God, his creator, the beauty “ever ancient, ever new.”―Sister Gabriella Yi, O.P.

Royal Baby Names? The odds are... .

As the son of a loyal monarchist, God rest her soul, this blogger is motivated to offer congratulations to their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the occasion of the birth of their second child.

Now, on to the important business of speculating what the new princess' name might be.

Elizabeth
  • the Duke's grandmother's name: Queen Elizabeth
  • the Duchess' middle name (Catherine Elizabeth nee Middleton)
  • the Duchess' mother's middle name (Carole Elizabeth Middleton)
Diana
  • the Duke's mother's name, of course.
  • probably best as a second or third name for the new princess
Other names being tossed around by the paparazzi:
  • Victoria
  • Alice
  • Alexandra
  • Mary
  • Charlotte
So then, how about one the following suggestions?
#1. Her Royal Highness Princess Elizabeth Diana Charlotte of Cambridge
#2. Her Royal Highness Princess Elizabeth Alexandra Victoria of Cambridge
Apparently the betting pools are all abuzz.
