This is a perfect place for discussion.

I neglected to say that my post was mostly reflecting on how the media is publishing headlines that seem impatient (attracting equally impatient comments) and taking intrusive pictures of George going to school all in the name of waiting for the name.
Oh, you were not disrespectful. I was just pointing out that it's okay to discuss the name as long as it's fun and not disrespectful.

There is such a wibe around the name Philip, it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if that was it. I think I’ll venture a little guess, that it will be Prince Philip Arthur Michael - and let’s see how far off that will be in the end :)

Whatever his name I bet Charlotte is loving having a baby to cuddle and fuss about. George, maybe not so much just yet

Why would Charlotte and not George be the one to love having a baby to cuddle?

It's Louis Arthur Charles.

Well, I wasn't expecting that.

The Birth of HRH Prince xxx of Cambridge: April 23, 2018

Very nice I like it. But would have liked the English spelling Lewis ( my fathers name )

Curveball!

I did not expect that one. Do they pronounce it as LouiE or LouiS (emphasis on the E or S)?

Well, I certainly expected them to avoid using any of George's names...

I'd prefer it if they included Philip instead of Charles, but again it's not my place. So best wishes to another Prince Louis!

I think it will be LouiE in pronunciation. It’s a really lovely name.

I'm expecting they will pronounce it LOO-IS/LU-ISS rather than LU-EE.

LU-EE is usually the French pronunciation or used as a nickname or informal version.

I guess someone will confirm how it is said

Inwoukd have preferred Arthur as the first name, but so be it. The delay may be associated with pressure from the RF to include Charles in the name.

LouiE
The 's' is silent.

NEVER had a Prince Louis before in the United Kingdom, so the Cambridge's , so often slated as 'unoriginal', have 'broken new ground' indeed.

Louis has a very soft touch but it isn't a strong name like William suggested, maybe he was joking. However, is Louis a british name? Sounds very french. I hope the S at the end has emphasis, otherwise, with emphasis on E, it would be soooo french and not english. At least for my ears ahahah

One of William's names is Louis too I think...and George. I am surprised they went with Louis as a first name.

That is very unusual (and not very Hanovarian!) I like it though, I think, and it goes well with George and Charlotte. Perhaps after Louis Mountbatten, Prince Philip's uncle and his father Prince Louis Battenberg?
