This child will reign most likely no earlier than in 60-65 years. Maybe George will become super popular again and King George won't sound old-fashioned.

I preferred Alexander too, but surely if they were planning on calling him Alexander they would have said their preference. They did that with Harry didn't they? I like Alexander and would have liked Edward and Sophie to call James it instead, but I was pleased it was one of his middle names too.

I too did not expect James as he also has an Uncle James.

The name George is already popular for young boys in England and Wales. It's been in the top twenty since at least 1996 (#12 in 2011).

The announcement said that he will be known as "The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge," so I don't think they'll be calling him anything else (aside from some perhaps some pet names within the family).

Prince George's third name is pronounced Louis and not "Lew-is".

They said on CNN I think that Catherine really liked the name Louis.

George is the name of Quen's father but also Pcs Philip (DoE) grand father, King George I of Greece. It is a double tribute, why not?

Sources say Prince Philip is currently 'convelescing' at Sandringham - hasn't seen Prince George yet.

Royal baby name announced as George Alexander Louis by Prince William and Kate Middleton:

No, Jane's son is named Alexander Robert Fellowes. Sarah's son name is George Edmund McCorquodale.

I was hoping for Alexander, but at least it's in there somewhere. I don't really like George, but it's traditional and I'm just happy they announced the name this early on.

George Edmund McCorquodale is the name of Elizabeth's son, while Alexander Robert Fellows is the name of Jane's son. Charles' sons are Louis Frederick John Spencer and Edmund Charles Spencer.

So, really all 3 of Baby C's names are featured in the Spencers.

I really love the name. It's very Royal, very Windsor, and it's a complete departure from all the ugly and bizarre celeb baby names that are popular now. I wonder if they will call him Georgie, or Alex? I also wonder if William will ask one of his Spencer cousins to be among the godparents? I think that would be great.

I was one of the ones grumbling about all the coverage of this child's birth and I still think it was a bit excessive(outside of Britain anyway) but I have to admit that I melted when I caught a glimpse of him yesterday. He is precious. I also have a newfound respect for Kate, she looked beautiful after what she went through and it cannot have been easy.

Good job!
