While Zara was the most outrageous royal rebel (who can forget the pierced tongue) Mia and Lena were "different" just as "Zara" was different when she was born. Now the Yorks went with history and thus "Beatrice" and "Eugene". Jack is a very old, english name and so I would not be surprised by something with links to the past.

Fortunately, Beatrice (bringer of joy, blessings) and Jack (God is gracoious) don't seem the "Tarquin" or "Ambrose" type.

Aunt Beatrice may be a sounding board, but I'd think Eugenie (which means nobility or excellence) may have a bigger role in choosing her son's name

Zara may have been rebellious but she chose pretty tame lovely names. Even if not overly traditional.

We have yet to see what a York will name their child as this is the first of this generation. Andrew went the traditional route for his daughters when his sister Anne went 'unconventional' with Zara. Zara went 'unconventional', now its time to see what her cousins do.

42 days before you have to register your child?!?
Wow, that is long. Here (the Netherlands) is it 3 days. And don't you dare to be late, otherwise you will be fined for 350 euro's.

We didn't see baby pictures of Peter's or Zara's children and I suspect Eugenie might be the same - no pictures or details about the christening etc.

Victoria Arbiter has written an article on Honey Nine News Australia on how Baby Brooksbank (born in 9th February 2021) "is so special for the Queen". Apart from royal milestones, she also mentioned about Christening plans for Baby Brooksbank.

Heh, I suggested "Augustus" as a joke of what an upper class old fashioned name might be! Didn't expect to be kind of "right".

I like it. Glad Philip is there. I wonder where Hawke comes from.

He's completely adorable.

Maybe they're fans of Ethan Hawke :-) . I suppose August has got Hanoverian links. That's certainly an "original" choice ... I suppose he can always call himself Phil if he fancies being known as something more traditional! Lovely picture.


I think Augustus (as opposed to August) was killed off as a name by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ... people associate it with Augustus Gloop, the greedy nincompoop!

What a great news on the name reveal! August is quite out of the box, yet traditional and upper class. I actually have not heard of it as a first name (I know Augustus). I love how Philip is his middle name

Baby August looks so cute!

I suspect he might be Gus or Augie as a baby/toddler.

I doubt he'll be the only one with that kind of name at his school, he'll be one of a crowd of Wilfreds, Tobiases, Algernons etc. But he does have Philip if he wants to be less conspicuous in general.

It's not exactly what I was thinking but it is "old fashioned/classical with a twist" which is what I predicted.

August! Quite surprised but kind of expected. That's a lovely name. I guess Augusta for a girl so I'm not completely wrong I think

His name should be already entered into the title of the thread.

If she had wanted to honour a grandad it would have been nice to have chosen Ronald rather than Philip as Sarah was so close to her father. The families of the 'married in' partners always seem to get ignored when naming children. [.....]. Still, little August is a lovely little baby, very cute indeed.

I love the name Hawke, but would have never thought of it for one of little Brooksbank's names. It's nice that Prince Philip was honored. I wonder where the name August comes from in terms of their selection of it for a first name at that. Did they happen to meet in August??? Maybe that's the connection.

Well, other than the tribute to Philip, it seems like a totally unique name for little Brooksbank. They seem so happy and besotted with their son and with each other. That's a beautiful thing. Best wishes to them, and I hope they are enjoying Frogmore and environs.

Augie Brooksbank

Latin name, it is considered very old-fashioned also in Italy

That is such a lovely name! Auguste is becoming quite trendy in French-speaking countries. Maybe August will become as popular in United Kingdom.

It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with being close to anyone. I adored my grandfather and my father, but I'm certainly not going to be giving a boy their names which like Ronald are very old fashioned but not in a classic way. I don't think there are any rules or ignoring married in families.

By the time you start looking at Great Grandparents there are a lot to choose from and they just went with one who is still alive and hopefully about to mark his 100th in the year this baby was born.
