Prince William & Kate Middleton Have Named Their Son George Alexander Louis


Just moments ago I mentioned that it was likely that Prince William and Kate Middleton would reveal the name of their newborn son sometime before Queen Elizabeth leaves for holiday on Friday … and just milliseconds ago, the name of the royal baby was revealed as Prince George Alexander Louis. I love it! George was my favorite name of the frontrunners so I’m very happy that that was the name chosen for the boy who would be king of England. Click below to read the full text of the official name announcement.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son George Alexander Louis. The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.”

The young prince has names inspired by his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth Alexandra Mary II, his grandfather Prince Charles Philip Arthur George and his father William Arthur Philip Louis.

So … what do we think?

    A good noble name. Surprised they went with George as I heard Charles intended to use it when he became King.

  • Joanna

    George was not an unexpected name by any means, it’s just not the name I would have gone with if I was in their shoes. Every time I hear the name George I think of an old man and not a newborn baby. However, George is really a regal name befitting a future king. I would have gone with Alexander as the first name and George as one of the middle names. No matter what, that kid is adorable and will be spoiled with so much love and attention he won’t know what to do with it. I wish them all the best.

    I figured they would go with George, being that was the queens fathers name and Liz and Wills being so tight. I’m glad. Little Georgie.

  • Alecia

    Yeah I would’ve preferred Alexander or Louis, his other middle name but alas I’m sure they knew they had to be traditional in this sense. I think I’m going to nickname him Georgy Porgy just so I can hum that song and he’s probably going to break hearts.

  • Megan

    Aww Alexander would have been a good name, George is so old fashioned.

  • Luna

    I was rooting for Louis! King Louis! Prince Louis! Then I am gonna go change my name to Louise hahahahah

  • Kate

    Being our future king, they were limited to what they could call him, and they have chosen a name that is quite popular at the moment, not at all old-fashioned. I like it!
