Royal baby named George Alexander Louis
The royal baby has a name. It’s George Alexander Louis. “The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge”, the Clarence Palace wrote on July 24,
But why did his parents name him like that? Are there any special connections? “Don’t read into [the names] too much. They are not meant to be symbolic; they are just names the couple like”, a source close to the royal couple told Us Weekly.
Still, there are a few coincidences worth noting. For example, George is the name of Queen Elizabeth II’s father George VI and grandfather George V. And Alexander is the male version of the name of Prince William’s godmother Princess Alexandra. Alexandra is also Queen Elizabeth II’s middle name. Louis, meanwhile, is one of the Duke’s own middle names, as well as one of Prince Philip’s uncle Earl Mountbatten’s middle names.
What you have to know is that Prince George won’t necessarily become King George. Monarchs have the option of choosing alternative names when they take the throne. King George VI, for example, was born Albert Frederick Arthur George. If the new heir does choose to keep his name, however, he would become King George VII.
