We'll use George and James the next go around if it's a boy. And Alexander is nice too, but a little to Russian for me.
I am with you.
" Philip" is really regal name, though not very spread among british monarchs, and it's a great tribute to the DoE.

I didn't imagine they would make an announcement so soon

I thought they would wait a while too. I can't wait to see what they have named him!

But I think Baby Cambridge looks like a George.
Albert Victor isn't a good role model for baby Cambridge's name. He had a scandalous life and a Jack the Ripper suspect ( although he wasn't in London at the time of the murders) Also wasn't the bright lightbulb in the bunch.

I hope they don't name him George. Am not a fan of the name. Arthur would be nice though.

Alright! Anyone want to make a last-minute guess at the name? I'm sticking with Philip, I think, but I rather hope it's a "new" name that hasn't been used for any previous kings.

Confirmed by multiple news sources on Twitter that a name will be announced shortly.

I didn't know that about Albert Victor, know I also think that he wouldn't be a good role
model for the little prince.

The name is officially George Alexander Louis!

(Am not surprised by the George, but I expected different middle names, and I'm surprised there are only 3 names).

George is so archaic!


I really hoped for a Philip or even Henry!

At first, I didn't like George, but it's grown on me! Also surprised that he only has three names!

But like I said could very well happen -- there's no Middleton or Spencer names to be found in this one.

I love the shorter name, although I'm sure it will be unpopular with some. No harm in dragging the monarchy kicking and screaming into the 21st century.
