William and Kate name Royal Baby George Alexander Louis

Royal Baby Name George Alexander Louis "Not Meant to Be Symbolic"
Now that the royal baby's moniker has been revealed -- Kensington Palace announced in a statement on Wednesday, July 24, that Kate Middletonand Prince William had decided on George Alexander Louis -- everyone wants to know the meaning behind the choice. But one insider says it might not be as significant as people imagine.
That said, there are a few coincidences worth noting. For example, George is the name of Queen Elizabeth II's father George VI and grandfather George V. And Alexander is the male version of the name of Prince William's godmother Princess Alexandra. (Alexandra is also Queen Elizabeth II's middle name.) Louis, meanwhile, is one of the Duke's own middle names, as well as one of Prince Philip's uncle Earl Mountbatten's middle names.

Another fact worth noting is that Prince George won't necessarily become King George. Monarchs have the option of choosing alternative names when they take the throne; King George VI, for example, was born Albert Frederick Arthur George. If the new heir does choose to keep his name, however, he would become King George VII.
