The Royal Baby Has a Name!
Wed, 07-24-2013 - 1:36pm

The name of Britain’s newborn prince was revealed Wednesday.

And his name is...

George Alexander Louis!

According to the statement, the baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.

Though Prince Charles and Princess Diana took a week to announce William's name, Will and Kate took just two days. Prince George was born Monday at St. Mary's hospital in London at 4:24 p.m. local time, 11:24 a.m. ET.

What do you think of their choice?

Ehh, I know it makes sense to go with a "traditional, royal" name, but I would have liked to have seen something a bit different than George, Charles, Alexander, Williams, Henry...  But I suppose if he's going to be king some day he should have a prior king's name.

I was kind of hoping for Richard (nobody uses Richard anymore...) or Frederick, but I like George. I'm a bit surprised by Alexander...I don't think it figures into the royal family, at least not prominently.
