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)Zelia/Elja • Nineteen • Name and history nerd from an early age • I have a blog.

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.Margot - Eleanor (Lena) Ivy - Leonie - Camille/a Clare - Margery Wren
