Indeed, but I think he goes exclusively by "Wolfie" so a little Kit would be okay IMHO. I think Frederick is such a perfect, underused royal name! The only reason I didn't include it was because of Lord Fredrick Windsor. He's Eugenie's 2nd Cousin once removed, but his daughter Maud was one of her bridesmaids so I assume they are close enough for her not to use it.

I never suggested Oliver for the Cambridge children for this reason, but I think Eugenie's son is sufficiently removed from the succession that it wouldn't matter so much.
Horatio would be amazing!
Of course! I even featured little Wilfred's BA in July (https://www.britishbabynames.com/blog/2020/07/uk-birth-announcements-13720-19720.html). Doh! Completely slipped my mind!

I think you are right about the more exotic vowel-heavy names. And word combos like Ivy-Winter and Summer-Blossom I think.
