Well the bookies got the name right! I was right choosing Alexander and Louis. The name flows seamlessly and as pp's have said it is a royal name with a commoners touch as his name only has two middles.
I think that this big, bouncing boy suits his name. I love that George is such a straight forward unfussy name and it is very manly. They have made a good choice although I would have been drooling if his first name was Alexander.
I don't like Arthur at all so I was pleased to see that one go through to the keeper.

I thought of a possible upside -- maybe they will call him Alex! Which would be refreshing and delightful!
Although I guess it is pretty sad when we are calling Alex "refreshing" when usually we are reassuring each other it is still okay to use because it is such a great name -- even though waaaayyyyyyyyyyy too popular!

It's almost always pronounced LOO-ee. I've only very recently heard people over here pronounce it LOO-iss and they're in the minority. Louis pronounced LOO-iss is an American import. The little prince shares his middle with his father who was named for Lord Louis Mountbatten whose name is pronounced LOO-ee. All BBC reporters are pronouncing it LOO-ee too
