What I mean is they didn't use first names like Charles, Philip, Henry or Michael.

Of course, but all of those names (or variants of them) have long associations with the BRF in general.

Alexander is probably a nod to HM, and I think having three names (especially considering Alexander's position among the three) might be as well.

But not including a Spencer name while including a Middleton name or vice versa would sure set the media a-chattering.

Georges V and VI both had four names, and so do Charles, William, and Harry. So do the Duke of York, the Earl of Wessex, Viscount Severn, the Duke of Gloucester, and Prince Michael of Kent (among others). Four names has been the standard for male HRHs for the entirety of living memory (save Edward VIII, who had seven names, and the Duke of Kent, who has five).

I'm pretty sure in the media, at least, keeping it to three will be regarded as a mild break with tradition and therefore a more modern choice.

It has on Facebook and Twitter. I think with the First Child they wanted to go with a (or mostly entirely) more traditional British/Royal names as it will be the Future King.

I bet if they have a Second and Third child then we will see some names honoring the Spencers and the Middletons.

I agree. The media would have gone crazy if they had honored Diana and/or the Middletons but not Charles.

If he needs one, his surname would be Mountbatten-Windsor. What is more likely to happen, however, is that in everyday use when he requires a surname he'll use Cambridge.

I expected George, though I am a bit disappointed that there is no "Phillip" in the list of baby names

I think you got the right idea why these names were picked, to honor the past relatives of the Windsors.
George: all the Kings named George including the Queen's beloved father. Louis for Duke William, Prince Charles and Prince Philip in honor of their relative Lord Mountbatten.

Alexander in honor of the Queen and Alexandra of Denmark. (Because the only kingly sounding male name beginning with E is Edward. And we already have a living Prince Edward.)

Does anyone else know another reason why Alexander would be picked? The way it sounds with the other names or Alexander the Great? Is there someone in the past in the Middleton family with that name? Need to do some research.

I agree with you about the other royal children that hopefully will follow.

Feeling slightly ambivalent about the name. While I think that George Alexander Louis is such a lovely combination that clings so well, I'm slightly disappointed that they didn't give him four names and didn't include either Philip or Arthur. I think we had all seen George coming and the Alexander Louis combination right after really brightens the very heavy name that I think George is - it does for me at least. I had guessed that Alexander might've been one of the names, but I'm surprised to see Louis in there. But it's a lovely name and I'm sure it has pleased both Philip and Charles that Earl Mountbatten has been honoured once again. I think that either Philip or Arthur easily could have been made the little lad's fourth name. George Philip Alexander Louis or George Alexander Louis Arthur could have worked just fine. But oh well, it's a terrific name anyway.

And George and Matilda sounds lovely, so there's still hope that my number one guess for George, had he been a girl, will be given to a possible future sister of the little Prince

The name of the new prince is George Alexander Louis. He will be called H.R.H Prince George of Cambridge.

If its true that the royal family won't have cousins with the same name, I hope they leave some names for Prince Harry.

Harry has more freedom in the names he chooses. His children don't have to have monarchical names.

I wish the palace had issued a statement saying how they're going to pronounce Louis. They pronounced it "Loo-ee" at William and Kate's wedding, and Philip's Mountbatten uncle and grandfather were "Loo-ee." But, I've already heard same reporters saying the name as "Lou-iss," as in St. Louis.
