I don't know how they are going to explain that the child seemed like a Philip to the press.
D how true!
but obviously they thought of it. but still i think the last names were clear, maybe not the first, but they just didn t thought of philip and theo by chance??! and i guess alexander has also an origin?

According to BBC, they've named the baby boy James Alexander Philip Theo Mountbatten-Windsor. In my opinion, it's a wonderful name!

BBC NEWS | UK | Edward and Sophie name baby James

I also like David, James is one we've not seen for a while, either, is it? Hopefully, Edward and Sophie will have an unexpected name in there. I wonder when the announcement of his name will be made?

Per the article, Theo is a name shared with the baby's maternal great-grandfather.

What a great Christmas gift for the family! He's an adorable baby and I'll be Louise is having a great time helping to take care of him!

I do too, actually. I am VERY happy to see the name Philip in there as well. Although, I would love to have seen Christopher too for Sophie's father. But James I like for the first name...very regal.

Theo is so cute. I guess they decided Theo is more appropos to modern fashion than Theophilius.

And at least 20 of our colleagues had James picked! In my short search, quite a few had the combo of James and Phillip selected, and others got James and Alexander.

Makes you wonder if "you know who" ever reads our efforts in our little community!

(By the way, when I think of "Jamie", I think of Jamie Fraser from the Diana Gabaldon Outlander (or Stitch in Time) series...not a bad fellow to share a name with!)

Happy Holidays!

I love the name they've chosen!

James Alexander Philip Theo is perfect - modern, but yet traditional and sentimental.

What a great name! James was a little bit of a surprise, but it seems to me like it hasn't been used in a while, so that's nice! And I'm SO glad that they included Philip in the name, as well.

Who is the Alexander after? Philip is for the Duke of Edinburgh, Theo is for Sophie's grandfather. Is James a family name or just one they liked?

Jamie Severn sounds adorable :)

I like the James Alexander Philip part, but am not sure about Theo, a bit to footballer for my liking thought I suppose HRH does have valid reasons.
