Prince George Alexander Louis

Unfortunately Will and Kate did not grant my wish of going for something a little bit unexpected for the name of their son but that aside it's still nice to be able to finally put a name to the face. 

HRH Prince George of Cambridge
What was slightly unexpected was the lack of a fourth name as both Prince William and Prince Charles have four names.

I've always like names so I thought I'd have a little look into the new little Prince's names.

A classic name for a future King. We've had 6 King George's including the little guys Great Great Grandfather, the Queen's father, George VI. George is also the name of the patron saint of England.

George means "farmer" or "earth worker" which is a smidge ironic what with Prince George being well, a prince.

It's also a Harry Potter name so win!

This is apparently a common name on the Middleton side of the family but it could also be a nod to the Queen as Alexandra is one of her middle names. 

Alexander means "defending men" which seems quite apt seeing as he'll one day be Defender of the Faith.

One of Prince William's middle names, this is very meaningful to the Windsors as it was the name of Lord Louis Mountbatten, Prince Charles' Uncle, who was assassinated by the IRA in 1979.

Louis is from the German name Ludwig meaning "famous warrior".

What do you think of the little Prince's name? What would you have chosen if you were Kate?
