Prince William and Kate Middleton have just announced their newborn baby’s name. The royal baby name is to be Prince George Alexander Louis. He will be later on referred to as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.
While the title of George was predictable enough, the three names instead of four broke with royal tradition. Many previous kings have been given the epithet of George. But they have also been given a lengthy name. This royal baby’s name is one extra surname short. George, by the way, has a Greek philological history that traces the original meaning to be “farmer”. And While Alexander obviously has Greek origins (think of Alexander the Great) Louis goes back to Earl Louis Mountbatten. There were a large number of choices to avail from ranging from the commonsensical to the downright nonsensical. Arthur, James, Henry and Philip symbolized the former. Chesterfield and Chardonnay fit the latter description.
abcNews reported that Kensington Palace announced today the name in following statement, "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son George Alexander Louis." Royal baby boy was born at 4:24 p.m. on Monday in London. His weight at birth was 8 pounds and 6 ounces.
Bets had been places over the name chosen for the newly born royal baby. In fact, more people lost and won via gambling over the name of the baby boy than ever before in mankind’s history. Some mothers who were to name their baby boys waited till the royal baby was named. After being cuddled by his great grandmother Elizabeth II, the baby boy was whisked off to meet its maternal grandparents who live in the English rural area. The happiness of Kate and William knew no bounds as they took turns carrying the little bundle of joy in their arms.
