[quote=""LoveHistory""]Just popping in to add that the Phillips' have named their new baby girl Savannah.[/quote]

Yes, the minister at the church near Sandringham said the name last Sunday as he prayed for the new baby and her parents. However, there still has been no official announcement. I'm curious about the middle names.

A trendy name! There are quite a few similar names which are popular at the moment - Sienna, Saffron, etc.

Well I suppose it's in keeping with her mum's style of name! It's not a bad name, although Savannah Phillips sounds a bit contradictory, one trendy, one very traditional name. Wonder if she'll have any "middle" names.
