If you read the other posts it's already been addressed.

But, he isn't my child, so it isn't my decision.
They are naming a child not writing a sonnet.

Exactly. Prince Louis shares only 2 names with his grandfather (Arthur and Charles) as well as two with his father (Louis and Arthur).

There is one major opinion I have about their children that I will never discuss, but I do think 2/3 of the names they used are good. Unfortunately certain people in the BRF have to use the old dated names and seeing as how William and Kate essentially were forced to choose those types of names I think they chose some good ones. At least they steered away from stinkers like Charles, Anne, Mary, Margaret, Henry (sorry Harry) or Edward.

For me, it matters very little where all the names for a child come from and who they were. What is most important is that its *his* name and it is up to the little prince to spend a lifetime defining that name as his own.

Although I do think that the name "Louis" being shared between brothers in some way is a opportunity for a bond from the very beginning. Especially for an almost 5 year old to have something to "share" with his brother. I do think that the Cambridges are smart enough to help the bonding with the new sibling out in subtle ways. But then again, I don't know the parents at all.

they were not likely to use names that were already in use.. like Charles, Anne, Henry etc.. but I can't see how using these names, which are good solid classic English and royal names are "stinkers!"....

There’s no way of knowing whether they felt somewhat forced to stay completely traditional or whether that fits their own inclinations anyway.

Looking at Kate’s family, they pick pretty traditional names too. Maybe she and William LIKE traditional names. There’s no doubt in my mind they must really like Louis. They used it twice. Charlotte is her own sister’s middle name. Elizabeth is hers and her mother’s.

Same things goes with how Kate dresses and how her children dresses. Fairly traditional, classic- though definitely with some experimenting here and there.

How do you know they were "forced" to use any names? All the names that they have given their children are currently popular in England/Wales (except Diana!) so none of them are "dated".

Some people here have very old-fashioned ideas. The British Royal Family has moved on from the old days when monarchs overruled family members over names. I'm sure advice may be offered, and if it is wise advice it will be taken, but William and Kate are sensible enough to know which names might be unsuitable for various reasons.

Case in point! They probably felt that Louis is too closely associated with the kings of France (18 of them!) to be appropriate as a first name for the heir. For a third child it is a different matter.

Louis might not be my fav name (I would've liked Arthur as a first name), but I don't find it weird to have one of George's name has the new prince's main name. I share my second middle name which is Sofia with two of my cousins. My mom is called Ana and her sister (my aunt) is Ana too!!! (though they have different middle names and are known by those middle names). George might have Louis, but he is called George and Louis will be called Louis, so it's not confusing and it's not weird, and name sharing happens all the time.

I think [in my experience] that it is more usual in 'Mediterranean' Countries, and in South America.
However it is very unusual in the UK. Family 'favourites' are passed down the generations, very often [My Maternal Great-Grandmother, Grandmother, my Mother and my Sister all have or had 'Elizabeth' somewhere in their name] , but siblings rarely share a name, in any order.

Its very common in the royal family... since names are used to honour relatives.. like you have Andrew Albert Christian Edward, and then Prince Edward.. Then there is James Philip Alexander Theo.. and William Arthur Philip Louis.....and of couse the name Elizabeth has been given to nearly most of the Q's granddaughters....

Can't see Prince Philip naming his son after a father that put his mother in an Asylum and abandoned him to be shunted among his relatives while going off to live with his latest mistress.

Well, I've always thought the Queen should have overruled Edward, when he named his son James.

James is a regnal name, which might be needed for the direct line.

I think the Cambridges might have chosen that, if it hadn't already been in use.

So to be on the safe side, when/if P.Harry has kids he shouldn't choose any name that a king could use? So he should stick with the "Buddy bear", "Saint" and "Honeyblossom" school of children's names?

I don't see the fuzz with using a name that was already in use, the Duke of Kent is called Edward and he wasn't close that to reigning either...

For all the trouble KP went to, all the US media outlets insist on calling Louis, Lewis. It just sounds so odd!

I really don't get the fuss about Louis being one of George's names . How often will George be called George Alexander Louis instead of just George ?
