"I am thinking Louis Arthur Philip" was my guess on April 25. Two out of three not too bad.

Yeah! I really like the name Louis. The DoE must be thrilled to see it yet again (George Alexander LOUIS, LOUISE Alice Elizabeth Mary) in the younger generations.

George, Charlotte and Louis. Very sweet. Charlotte and Louis sound almost French together...

I bet the name took so long because they were deciding whether or not to use Louis again. Perhaps that was the top choice for George, but felt pressure to go with George for the future monarch, and used Louis as a middle name. Fast forward to this baby, and they thought they’d use it now.

My prediction back in December was Edward Arthur Philip.
Actual name Louis Arthur Charles. Only one out of three this time around. Now we wait for Prince Harry's kids and start all over.


Ohh, is it too early for predictions on Prince Louis' future title? I see Duke of York in his future.

I don't think the Cambridges are done yet either so...we may still see Phillip and/or Michael from them!

Zara might want to use Phillip ...or Harry might!

I am afraid i don't think so. HRH Prince Andrew, Duke of York was born in 1960, so he is 58 now, i don't think he will have another child (male) so the title will be merge will the crown at some point. When HRH Prince Louis of Cambridge marries probably in his thirties like his father and uncle Harry, the Duke of York will be 88 given the longevity of his father 97 right now, his mother 92 right now, and his grandmother 102 at her death. I think he will be made Duke of Cambridge, the next duke of York will be one of the children of Prince George.

Ah so I would expect to see that in a boy Pippa has.

Philip is a Battenberg through his mother so Charles would not have been a Prince of Batterberg. Prince Philip also renounce his royal titles (for different reasons), had he not then his descendants, who include heirs to the British thrones, would be Prince and Princesses of Greece and Denmark.

Philip is being honored with Louis - a nod to Lord Mountbatten. I can see Philip as a first name with a baby down the line.

For some reason I'm sure that is their last baby.

I have to say that I'm floored that they reused one of George's names and I'm disappointed that there was no nod to Catherine's father/family. But, I'm thrilled to see that they did, in fact, follow the consonant/vowel/consonant pattern that they've followed in the past.

Louis Arthur Charles was most definitely an unexpected choice.

I just searched this Forum. 46 people mentioned Louis in a post before the naming (and some of those mentions came in quotations in replies). Some of you mentioned Louis only to dismiss the name as it had already been used for George.

So well done any of you who picked Louis as one of the names.x

We'll just have to disagree on that and wait and see!

Told my British grandmother the name this morning (she currently lives in the US). She hated Louis, but I think the reason is because Louie was the family nickname for her older sister Louise, so she sees it as a feminine name.

Yes, I feel Louis is their end note as well. However, I also thought Charlotte was their last - so what do I know? I would love to see a sister for Charlotte...

I feel a little weird trying to guess at the future of the poor child's life so early, but...assuming Louis gets a title on marriage, and marries in his early 30s, Andrew has around a one in four chance of still being around based on the current actuarial statistics.

I was also one of the one who picked Louis, only because the importance of Lord Louis Mountbatten to Prince Charles is well known and Prince William clearly feels the importance of family history in naming his own children An additional plus is that Louis works well in French!

Not if the current Duke of York is still living or has only recently become deceased when it is time for Louis to get a dukedom.

With the baby being named Louis, is there anyone else besides me that can picture George walking around with a puffed out chest adamantly stating "They named my brother after ME!".
