As much as we all seem to like the name "Alexander"... there has not been a King Alexander of Great Britain. I do not think the Queen would go for a name outside the box for the expected heir to the throne. Maybe for the 3rd son or for Harry's children she will be more open for something "daring".

There a Princess Estelle of Sweden and now a Prince George of Cambridge. Both are very nice old-fashion and traditional names. At least their named are not something ridiculous like Blue Ivy, Apple or North west! I know parents should be allowed to name their what they want to name them but seriously let get real! Those are names kids will have for the rest of their lives.

Kudos to The Crown Princess Victoria and Duchess Catherine for not going all Hollywood on us ( which obviously they weren't going to) and showing how to name a child. And picking something that make since even if it seem old fashion.

Meet GEORGE as the late JFK Junior said after launching his new magazine.
Another famous George; GEORGE WASHINGTON US PRESIDENT

Prince GEORGE after the Queen's father King George VI (but was he not in fact ALBERT)?

So no middle names of Philip, Charles, Michael or John :

Prince Charles,
Michael Middleton
Prince Philip
John, Earl Spencer (Diana's father).

No uncle's names

Prince Henry
James Middleton.

Louis after Earl Mountbatten.

Not sure where Alexander comes from?

I do think that William and Catherine have chosen the names just like any other parents might do. The Queen (i.e. the great-grandmother) will not have influenced their choice, nor made suggestions and would therefore not have had a say in the choice of names. Like other new parents, they have chosen names they like, are suitable and have some kind of family connection. The only difference here is that they will have been conscious to have chosen a suitable first name for a future king.
Alexander is said to have been a favourite choice of Catherine's and they both like the name Louis.

More than anything, I like the look of the name in print. George Alexander Louis -- it looks quite elegant to me.

Please PLEASE somebody educate our American news readers to pronounce Louis correctly. The local guy here in Los Angeles said "Lew-is" right off the bat.

ETA: Oh, and I love that they used only three names. Keeping it fresh!

Good, strong names. Not crazy about Louis. Alexander is also a tribute to the Queen, who is Alexandra herself. And I loooove George!!! HRH Prince George.

Well, CNN seems to get the Prince's name right though.

I read that Alexander is a favourite name of Catherine's and it is also the name of her friend, Trini Foyles, young son.

House of Hanover Family Tree

King George I, II, III, IV

House of Windsor Family Tree

King George V, VII

I think their choice was limited.

James (I never envisioned a King JAMES) too Scottish
King ALEXANDER - doesn't sound right.
King LOUIS (too French).
King RICHARD (not after the Richard III tragedy).

So there was only really HENRY, EDWARD, or FREDERICK left.

Had to smile @ the pictures of the Cambridges leaving KP - Catherine had her hair pulled back into a ponytail, bet Prince George has already found how delightful it is to pull on mama's long hair.
