The Spencer link is very strong too with reference to the Cambridge children's names. George and Alexander are the sons of Diana's sisters. Charles Spencer was Diana's brother, he has a daughter Charlotte Diana and his son and heir is named Louis.

An unexpected choice rather (reusing one of George's names and honoring Charles again - first with Charlotte).

Exactly, EVERYONE can be happy about the names.
(Even if it's always bit far fetched to desperately search any link with Diana, as usual ...)

BBC website’s most read story. Despite the four day wait- the public’s appetite for #royalbaby news is apparently undimmed. @BBCNews

Royal baby named Prince Louis - BBC News

Pretty impressive. Everyone loves the royal baby.

As to pronunciation, just keep this song going through your heads:

I am so happy. Love love love that they went with Louis as the 1st name. Must say I was a bit disappointed when they gave Alexander & Louis as middle names to George because I had assumed they would not use them for another child. Happy I was wrong.

The name is more of a surprise because we had ruled it out as it was used for George but its a big family name for the Windsors, quite a number of them have it in their names (both male & female versions).

We have Lady Louise and now Prince Louis

Prince Phillip is being honoured as well, a beloved relatives memory as been kept alive through his children, grandchildren & now great-grandchildren.

Oh a blast from the past! I actually remember when the song came out by the Kingsmen and the controversy surrounding it which caused radio stations to ban playing it. I have to laugh now because compared to what is out there now that kids listen to makes the Louie Louie controversy sound tame.

So... its pronounced Looey right? Or Looeye. I've alway said it as Lewis.

I have to say the name choice surprised me a lot. I'm not a huge fan of the choice as I was rooting for a Prince Arthur. I'm sure it'll grow on me and i'm sure he's as cute as a button.

I'm glad they didn't use a name currently used by someone at the minute (James, Edward etc.) as that just gets so confusing.

I'm also hoping for a Princess Alice when Harry has children!

There was a Charlie Weasley, Rons elder brother (the one who worked with dragons ) Anyways, I like the name, although I didn't expect it. They went for very classic names for the heir and spare (George and Charlotte), so now they seem to feel free to go for a more unusual name. And of course the name Louis has been in the family through the Mountbattens.

Louis is son of Bill and Fleur. Probably not iconic though.

Unless the Queen issues special letter of patent making Prince Harry's future children Princes/Princesses of the United Kingdom, allowing them to be HRH, they won't be princes or princesses at birth but rather
Lord [first name] Mountbatten Windsor or Lady [first name] Mountbatten Windsor
If Prince Harry is created Duke of Sussex Earl of Ross as suggested, then, his first male born would be Earl of Ross as a courstesy title, and the others would be lord or lady. They would only become Princes or Princesses of th UK when Charles becomes King; according to George V 1917 letter of patent
If Charles predeceases The Queen, they would never be Princes or Princess of the UK, unless William once King issues letter of Patent granting them this status

I do think it's neat that all 4 (so far!) of them share in that name. Charles, William, George and now Louis.


LaRae
Yes, Lord Mountbatten and Prince Philip's mother Alice were the children of Prince Louis of Battenberg and Princess Victoria of Hesse.

Victoria was the daughter of Grand Duke Louis/Ludwig IV of Hesse and Princess Alice, who was the daughter of Queen Victoria.

The name Louis was used frequently in Prince Philip's mother's family.

Since Princess Madeline of Sweden lives in London wouldn't it be nice to see, in the future, a marriage between the Cambridges and the O'Neills? George and Adrienne or even George and Leonor.
