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.

Other possibilities include Prince Philip‘s grandfather Prince Louis Alexander of Battenberg and also Prince Charles‘ uncle Earl Louis Mountbatten, according to People.

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

  • Louise

    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.

It shows us all the divide between us and them
