I absolutely love the royals, and I'm so excited for them! Though I personally am not a huge fan of George, I agree that the full name is very regal sounding. I sort of wish they would've used Spencer in there to honor Princess Di, but the queen would probably never allow it. I like that they chose Alexander because Kate loves it and Louis to honor Lord Mountbatten. Congratulations to them and I wish them all the best of luck! (Even though I wanted it to be a girl )Lily

Of course it is too predictable, although I was hoping for George, as the other possibilities seemed worse.
Of course it is too bad we can't look forward to a Princess Flora or a Prince Caspian, but there it is -- I said from the start -- they don't have a real choice. This couple is more constrained by history and tradition than the rest of us. Perhaps we should be publically polite about the name choice and privately grateful for our own freedom.
Not knocking George, by the way. I think it is nice classic that is enjoying a deserved resurgence. I would just not want to in a position where my choices were so limited...

Feeling slightly ambivalent about the name. While I think that George Alexander Louis is a very lovely combination which clings incredibly well, I’m slightly disappointed that 1.) they didn’t give him four names, and 2.) that they didn’t include either Arthur or Philip.
I think we had all seen George coming and the Alexander Louis combination right after really brightens the very heavy name that I think George is - it does for me at least. I had guessed on Alexander because it’s a beautiful name and it pays great tribute to Scotland, where little Georgie’s parents met, but I’m surprised to see Louis in there. It’s a lovely name though, and I’m sure it has pleased both Philip and Charles that Earl Mountbatten has been honoured in a royal baby’s name once again
I think that either Philip or Arthur easily could have been made the little lad’s fourth name. George Philip Alexander Louis, George Alexander Philip Louis or George Alexander Louis Arthur could have worked just fine. But oh well, George Alexander Louis is a mighty fine name and I can totally see him as a little Georgie (my thought immediately ran to George V who was called Georgie and he was the most adorable child, just take a look at this picture of him, Alexandra and Eddie)

I've been thinking about little Prince George all day, and the more I think about it the more I like his name.
I think one of my favorite things is that it just seems so wearable. Four names is so distinctly royal, but three is a bit more accessible. There are plenty of kids running around with two middle names. George Alexander Louis could be just about any kid out on the playground, but is still suitable for the future king. I think it's appropriate for Will and Kate - grounded in tradition, but with a modern, approachable edge.
I also love the flow. I'm not usually a big fan of two middles, but there's something nice about this one! Perhaps it's because the shorter George and Louis help ground the longer Alexander in the middle.Lila - Eleanor (Lena) Ivy - Leonie - Camille/a Clare - Margery Wren
