Has been confirmed to be George Alexander - the exact same names as my DS! I know I know totally unreasonable... But that's MY son's name and I CHOSE IT FIRST grin

Where did you get that information? Lovely name btw grin

At least my Luis got a look in, even though it is only third!

MollyBerry Wed 24-Jul-13 18:32:26

George Alexander is my friends name too. They're in good company!

Branleuse Wed 24-Jul-13 18:32:27

oh no. How will you tell them apart?

Lol, telegraph updates. I know I'm being unreasonable but I chose the name George 5 years ago because it wasn't heard of much but was still a 'normal' name, now there will be ten a penny!

Hehe well me and Kate are besties but my George is 4 foot tall so we will manage!

MrsSparkles Wed 24-Jul-13 18:34:02

You must have very good taste. I think it's a lovely name!

BBC says George Alexander Louis - have you got Louis too OP?

Thank you MrsSparkles! Baby was also born on my birthday, totally stealing my thunder here!

Nope not Louis grin

Me and dh's guesses were Alexander and George, we we both right. Lovely name.

DS2 has one of the new prince's names. However, my one is 8 years old, so can live with their choice grin.

MrsSparkles Wed 24-Jul-13 18:37:45

99 if you're anywhere near London the Shard was giving away free tickets to anyone born that day. But that is a bit rude - taking your birthday and your names smile.

Not near London unfortunately, but yes very inconsiderate indeed!

They've got my carseat. I always knew I was a trendsetter <preens>

Morgause Wed 24-Jul-13 18:40:50

Lots of Georges around here already.

Aargh Alexander is name I have picked out if I ever have a boy. It's not that common but now I'll be accused of copying Kate sad

Twas my 1st choice for my son, but DH didn't like it

RedHelenB Wed 24-Jul-13 18:47:14

Very unoriginal - there's been 6 of them already!

apostropheuse Wed 24-Jul-13 18:47:24

His third name is Louis, named after Louis Mountbatten. Louis is also one of William's names - also after Mountbatten. I remember trivia like this!

99problems Wed 24-Jul-13 18:48:18

I really didn't think they would call him George because it was so typical/expected!

I like it, classic and modern although I would have liked Albert, not that it matters now.

George Cambridge sounds solid and strong, I like it!

Love George but don't like Alexander. Would have preferred King Kai though.

Very dull name. Not surprised.
