George Alexander Louis
I must be a lone voice who is disappointed.
 I was hoping for a more modern name from these modern royals.
Even Alexander George Louis would be a huge improvement.
I can't for the life of me imagine looking down at my tiny baby and calling him "George "
( my Dad is George by the way ).
 Does this mean for ever more we have to have Kings whose names are chosen from a small list of traditional names?
( George, Henry, James, ...... oh please !! )
 At least we'll get a bit of a break with William before heading for another boring George !!
( and if you wanted to honour the Queen's father, his real name after all was Albert !!)
Cheers from a Colonial Royalist.


  1. I feel exactly the same! I thought Alexander George would have been better but like you, had hoped they might break the silly tradition and pick something different. Very disappointing!

  2. Tony would have been a better name for the young prince as Tony means - the obedient one, the servant. Prince Tony has a nice ring to it.

  3. I've been googling the shawl this evening, being nosey as I am!! It cost £45.00 from G H Hurt in Nottingham. Everyone is wanting them now.
    Best wishes to you

  4. Not being a Brit, it doesn't faze me what they name the baby. I was hoping "Ringo" but I guess that didn't fly!! Glad he's healthy and loved.

  5. Can't say I like George much myself, but there is a trend in the UK right now for old-fashioned names.

  6. Never know he might change his name to William when he is King!
    As Kathy says it is a trend for old fashioned names at the moment in the UK

  7. It's not his name that matters really but what sort of person he turns out to be isn't it? I am glad he's called Alexander though as that was my maiden name and who knows if King George VI was really called Albert what this little chap will be called when his time comes - if it ever does.

  8. George is very popular with young couples here in England, so I was not surprised they chose it. I was pleased they included Louis, I liked Lord Mountbatten, Charles' Uncle (and God father I believe). It was terrible how he was killed.

  9. George sounds so stuffy for a little baby but the Alexander and Louis are nice. They just got the names in the wrong order. He looks like a healthy bub and I guess that's what matters.

  10. George isn't that bad but I am pleased the young prince was given my son's name as well. Alexander, wonderful name and shortens so nicely to Alex. Imagine if he had been called Richard... Prince Dick.

  11. Guess what, just after putting that post up on Thursday about losing the blogs I follow, up they all come!
    And I couldn't agree more about the baby's name. Just because there are these historic kings' names, I see no reason why they can't pick something different and refreshing.

  12. Maybe, they will call him "Spencer" on the side. But, I agree. At least it's not some crazy name like the crazies over here. North West, or Sky or Apple...they are nuts here...

  13. I like both the other names too but I kind of agree about George.

    But I guess in time we'll all get used to it.

  14. Why not start a new tradition with a new name ? Perhaps the Queen would not approve. I think the whole thing is a bit of a yawn and probably irrelevant in the 21st century.

  15. Sorry to be late to the party, but I do agree about the names chosen for the little prince. Rather sparse and uninspiring. Did you know that the full name of Queen Mary of Teck (wife of George V) was Victoria Mary Augusta Louise Olga Pauline Claudine Agnes? I'm not even kidding.

    Here is my contribution to the merriment.
