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

Snap, my ds is also George Alexander.

My four month old is a George too. I'm going to get fed up saying 'actually, he was born first'. So we're calling him George I ;)

Fancy you having a George Alexander too! My last boy is Alexander, born on my dad's birthday. Dad was called George, so son is Alexander George. Dad George died earlier this year and here we have a new George, so out with the old and in with the new is OK with me as it is a lovely reminder!

My DS1 is Alexander but he is 43 now so I cannot possibly be accused of copying can I?.the Royal parents were not even a twinkle in their fathers' eyes when he was born.

My DHS two nephews are Louis and Alexander

I don't get all the concern. There are loads of Kates and Williams everywhere but I don't think of the Cambridges. confused

It's just a name, like every other George, ever.

I see this thread has made it onto the Mumsnet Parenting News email!!

I thought they would have Alexander as the first name, but maybe they will call him something completely different in private, you never know...

OP, I feel your pain - my DS is also George Alexander (age nearly 5) and I love it. I know it's not an unusual name but it's not that common either (or wasn't) and my George is also the only one in his class and social circle. Adding the Alexander in too really got my goat! sad

I saw on one website that Royal baby names actually lower the popularity of that name. So, if that trend continues, George wont be a popular name

My George is the only George in his class, but we live in a very small city. Love the name sooo much but am a little sad it will now probably be the most populary boys name for the next couple of years!

I have a 20 year old George - he was born overseas and was always the only George in whatever school he was in (big schools too). When we recently returned to the UK there were 5 George's in his class. Admittedly one was actually a female Georgia but she went by the name George.
George is very popular.

Very dull name. Not surprised.

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

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!

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

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!

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

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

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

Fluffyears Wed 24-Jul-13 18:41:45

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

Lots of Georges around here already.

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

Not near London unfortunately, but yes very inconsiderate indeed!

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.

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