Someone pointed out in an earlier post his father's name as a possble source.
It also seems likely to me that it is a diminutive of AleXANder.

Thats what I was thinking as well when I read the name. Lord Xan- sounds almost Star Wars-ish...
But I do like it.

Indeed! Perhaps he is being groomed to become the next Jedi and take over the European Union!

Well, I know some of the Kents have interesting names (Lady Helen's sons sound like the cast of Julius Caesar), but I'd never have thought the Gloucesters would get creative like that. I wonder what Lady Davina will be calling her little Maoris when she starts producing them.

If Lady Davina has a girl, she might want to call her Elizabeth, after Her Majesty. Only in Maori way - Irihapeti, or maybe Margaret - Makareta.

Do we know when the Earl of Ulster is supposed to go to Irak ?
I think that May was announced but since Pce Harry is not going, I thought that maybe the same principle would apply. In my opinion any member of the RF (minor or not) is a potential target.

To repeat PrincessofEurope's question, little Xan is now a year old. is there ANY information about his christening? I assume it was a really low-key event, since I'm sure it would have popped up somewhere that a member of the BRF was going. I'm sure the Gloucesters went, but perhaps it was very private. I guess we can assume from this that none of the BRF were godparents to the baby either...

Isn't there a thread about this couple in the Royal weddings section of the forum? I haven't seen one but I would be very interested to.

There is no thread for the wedding of the Earl and Countess of Ulster.
The wedding was a low-profile event with little news coverage.
