Pardon my ignorance but how is Alexander a nod to the Queen?

Isn't Alexandra a family name...perhaps a nod to the Queen's family?

I like the fact that , in a way, they are surprising us, again.
It's a modern couple but yet they chose a very traditional, and regal, name.
Bet some media will be highly disappointed, but its shows that the Monarchy is made of traditions above all.

Alexandra is one of the Queen's names.

It is a time to change a name of the thread. The prince George of Cambridge.

I like the name Combination. Louis is Prince William Middle name and Lord Mountbatten Name. George also honor Charles when you think about.

Some asked about Alexander, Alexander is a male version of Alexandra which could be honoring The Queen Great Grandmother Alexandra of Denmark who was the wife of King Edward VII.

Alexandra is also the Queen Middle name.

I was getting ready to suggest that. Only he'd be Prince George, not 'the,' as he isn't the child of the sovereign.

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt 2m
Prince George doesn't have to be King George if he accedes to the throne. He can choose another name.

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt 48s
The names, according to their spokesman, were the ones the couple wanted. They've told their families.

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt 49s
During her pregnancy, Kate told someone they had a shortlist of names, but friends kept texting them with suggestions.

I'm surprised they didn't choose four names and didn't choose Philip, Charles or Michael. But in the end it is a nice name and everybody was expecting George, right?

I think Prince Alexander does sound a bit more modern, but Prince George is nice and is a name that is not in use. I knew they wouldn't call him James as that's too close to little Viscount Severn.

Alexander and Louis are nice. I am surprised there is no Arthur as Charles and William have the name, but about time they changed tradition. Louis is a nice addition and little nod to Louis Mountbatten. Is Prince Edward's middle name after Louis Mountbatten or is it after another Louis?

When I visited KP back in May I was very shocked to see how visible the private section of the palace was. As you walk to Kensington Gardens where alot of embassies are located on the left side of the street and then on the right one could see the private apartments. There was a large sign on the street that said no picture taking. I didn't see people taking photos but probably some have.

EDIT
Prince George Alexander is a fine name!

I think they are saving Charles/Michael/Phillip etc for another son.

I was surprised they had only three names too. I think it is great they did that though. George is not my favorite name, but I'm glad they chose the names that they liked.

I like the name, no big surprise there, just glad its finally announced. I do wish they would of used Phillip in the name somewhere but I am sure they had a reason. Wonder why they went with 3 names instead of the normal 4 for a boy?

Not that they asked me....can't imagine why not!...but I really don't like the name George. I know William and Kate bow to tradition, and perhaps it is honoring the Queen's father, but it just seems too old fashioned for this modern couple. Maybe they plan to call him Alex.

Alexandra is also the Queen Middle name.
Alexandra is also the name of William's godmother, the Queen's (and Prince Philip's) cousin Princess Alexandra of Kent.
