Prince George Alexander Louis: History Behind the Name!

Prince William and Kate Middleton have officially named their newborn baby boy George Alexander Louis and now some history behind the name has been discovered!

If you didn’t know, Queen Elizabeth‘s father, whose real name was Albert, chose the name when he became King George VI back in 1936. When the newborn becomes King one day, he will be able to keep his name and become King George VII or choose another name!

Alexander is believed to have been chosen to honor Queen Elizabeth, whose middle name is Alexandra. Many people predicted that to be the baby’s first name if she had been a girl.

There are many people the name Louis could have been chosen to honor, including Prince William himself, whose full name is William Arthur Philip Louis! Other possibilities include Prince Philip‘s grandfather Prince Louis Alexander of Battenberg and also Prince Charles‘ uncle Earl Louis Mountbatten, according to People.

I like the name Alexander. I was thinking about this name… Yeah, enough… I just wanted to know the name. Beautiful baby.

Wasn’t one of the King George’s insane?

@WOW: Enough is enough. They all need to go away, they provide no purpose.

I was hoping for a name honoring his mother or sth.

Hideous name. I wish people would name their kids the name they like, not a name they feel compelled to chose to honor some dead person. Poor thing! I hope he goes by his second name.

Sick to death of this craze. My nan has been on a nhs waiting list for 18 months, and to hear of kate and williams private hospital choice, security costing 6000 pounds a day while at mummy middletons etc just reminds me what i pay for with this very over the top royal family. It shows us all the divide between us and them
