I agree that Alexander would have been a terrific first name for the little future King. Can't say that I am surprised by their choice of George though, as much as I had hoped for an Alexander, Arthur, Philip or Richard, it was almost given that they would go with the traditional George. I am, however, extremely bothered that they didn't went with four names.
Louis actually isn't Charles's middle (Charles Philip Arthur George) and, quite surprisingly, HM and the DoE didn't give it as a middle to Andrew (Andrew Albert Christian Edward) either. It wasn't until Edward (Edward Antony Richard Louis) was born that Earl Mountbatten was honoured (but what a beautiful moniker he has, that Edward, HM and the DoE are excellent namers)Exporting beautiful old Danish names, exotic Greenlandic names and Greenlandic sibling names.

Louis Mountbatten thing has been denied by a royal spokesperson.
Apparently they simply chose names they liked, nothing to do with honoring.♥ Margaret Mary ♥

I was hoping for Arthur, how awesome would a King Arthur be in a few decades' time?
But I thought George was most likely given pretty much every other male royal name is currently in use. Predicting Philip will be somewhere in the name for a second son as I'm assuming the Duke of Edinburgh will have passed away by that point - you heard it here first!
I like all three names individually and together, surprised they didn't go with four though.

Charles had the middle name Louis - I knew better! I'm glad we have forums like this where we can talk about minutia without sounding crazy. Shvibziks, I dub you our resident expert on all families royal.
I hadn't heard that a royal spokesman had actually commented on Louis Mountbatten, but I suppose that regardless of whether they are actually meant to honor anyone, all of the names have some sort of family/royal heritage. I'm glad that they chose names they liked AND that worked well with their position in the royal family.
