I just wanted to say congratulations to her.  Louis is a lovely name. 

ITA. Itís a beautiful name.  Interestingly, Charles Spencerís son is also called Louis.

^ Yes of course. I always think of Spencerís elder children and not the youngest.

I think that happens because the British upper class uses very few names - so there are many repeats: James, George, Louis, William, Henry, ... Given that names that used to be hip like Archibald and Percival seem out of fashŪon the pool is even smaller.

If you look at James: The Wessexes have a James, the Middletons, Pippa Middleton married a James ... there are also many James outside the upper class, of course.

Prince Louis of Cambridge is the first Prince Louis in the British Royal Family for more than a 100 years.     
Earl Mountbatten of Burma was a Prince Louis until 1917.

Very nice article Cyril Sebastian- I missed that at the time.  I love names & their meanings and family histories. 

My grandmother had a brother named Charlie ... he contracted TB.   She pronounced it, "Cholly".  He would scream whenever he saw the family dr. approach, poor little lad.   Poor little boy died aged 2 1/2 years.  She spoke of him so fondly. He was remembered with extra love.
