Can I Pick A Name or What?

Oh it’s a pity I didn’t live in England where I could have placed a bet on the name the Duke and Duchesses would select for their son.

Prince George ... Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge with their son

If you happened to read my Tuesday post Royal Babies ~ What’s in a name? my number one guess was…

George

The new prince’s full name is: George Alexander Louis

One of the Queen’s middle names is Alexandra after her paternal great-grandmother, Queen Alexandra and Alexander is of course the masculine form.

Prince William also has Louis as one of his middle names.

Here is my favorite of all the images that ran in the variety of the English Newspapers: The Sun

Welcome to the world to His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge!

I hope he looks like her side of the family.:) unfortunately, since he's their first child, they tend to favor the dad more..

Exciting news whenever a baby is born, royal or not. My dad was English and George is a family name for us. I like the name they selected. Wonder how the decision was made? '-)

I will hoping they might go a little less traditional, but that's what the royal family is all about isn't it? I wonder if they will call him George or perhaps a nickname of Alex. I happen to think William is quite handsome, so I think the kid is in a win win situation. Ann

I loved the name. My favorite thing about the royal family is their respect for the traditional. To give this little gift of the heart to the queen was a sweet, sweet, thing to do.

I really missed it on all accounts....maybe next time...and I sure hope the child gets a nickname!

I too was hoping they might go less traditional. Pick a totally different name from any in the royal line. and I really hope they are calling him Alex.

It's a nice name and I'm sure his Grandma is pleased.

I would have honored Lady Diana in his name....Spencer., but I am not up on the proper English thing to do? Hope the little guy grows up happy and loved...
