It's a nice name and I know each bit has family resonance, but I wish they would branch out just a little

Quite  - there are plenty of other great family names, like Leopold or  Friedrich or Adlabert


On second thoughts we'll just call this one Ludwig

It's unusual, but a nod to the Mountbatten-Battenberg connection, I suppose. It's quite a nice name but I'm a bit disappointed that 'Philip' wasn't included.

Louis one of Prince Edwards name?

Arthur is the name of Lady Sarah's son.

Charles after Grandfather.

I like them as well

I imagine Louis is after Louis Mountbatten-Windsor and not Prince Edward. Edward does have it as one of his names but his names (Edward Antony Richard Louis) are for his godparents.

I have to say I donít like the name choice. I would have preferred Arthur over Louis. Iím surprised Philip hasnít been included or Michael. Iím sure the name will grow on me but I just donít love it as much as I liked George and charlottes names.

They have a whole wealth of names available to them and theyíve chosen one of their first sonís middle names as the maculine version of their daughterís name. They really are ground breaking.

It's therefore an indirect nod to Philip for Prince Louis of Battenberg, Philip's grandfather, was onetime First Sea Lord during WWI until he was hounded out of office because of xenophobia. Thanks to said phobia, the Battenbergs also became Mountbattens.

Maybe Philip didn't want his name used in front? Who knows. The kid has a name that isn't Arthur or Albert.

The surprise is the use of Charles!

whatever the name is,  the last name of first son shouldn't be the first one of second son... so disappointing....

apart from that,  this baby will from now on,  clear the confusion of lewis or louiee to the people very clearly....

I approve of the name also. I hope they use the French pronunciation.

That is the pronunciation that has been used in the Mountbatten family - LouEE not LewIS. Certainly that was how Lord Louis pronounced it as did his father so I would assume that is how William pronounces his own Louis if he ever says all of his own names (William Philip Arthur Louis).

The Queen did that when she named Edward having already named Andrew as Andrew Albert Christian Edward.

Meh. Boring. But not surprising. Louis really isn't a great name.

Yes, meh. Although the name might grow on me. I don't like that they used a name they already used for George, seems weird (not good enough for the heir but the spare).

Louis.  I don't love it, but I don't hate it, either.
