I myself am in favour of Federation of United Commonwealth Kingdoms...
Seriously, though, if 'kingdom' is going to be mentioned at all, I think that it ought to be plural. THere is no United State of America or United Arab Emirate, and there is a reason for this: the name of the country has to recognise the plurality of its constituent elements, or people won't buy it. I reckon we could knock ten points off the Celtic separatists' poll ratings if we changed the name of the home country to the United Kingdoms.
Another snag comes if we consider that a Commonwealth federation might have to be Republican; or, if not, it might be necessary to go easy on the Royalist imagery and references to bring the blasted republicans on board. That's why I think that a neutral name would be best - something simple like the Federal Commonwealth. We have to tip-toe around people's sensibilities; for the same reason, I don't think that the capital should be London.
