I kind of like it. Not exactly my cup of tea but it’s cute for a royal prince 👑 x

IntelligentApe Fri 27-Apr-18 11:03:55

but isnt George also called Louis in his name? how odd

I dont like any of those names

jusdepamplemousse Fri 27-Apr-18 11:04:52

Prince Louis - I like it.

Jungle book vibes grin

I also like it. I like that they've gone a different way to what everyone expected of them.

TheWizardofWas Fri 27-Apr-18 11:05:28

bit French!

TheBrilloPad Fri 27-Apr-18 11:05:44

Pronounced Loo-ey, you think? Not Lewis?

TheHumanMothboy Fri 27-Apr-18 11:06:18

After Mountbatten

jusdepamplemousse Fri 27-Apr-18 11:08:56

Definitely not pronounced Lewis!

I've just won £50 then!

I am surprised that there isn't a "nod" to the Middleton family though

I love it; I think it's great that 'Louis' as a a name can tie sons and father together... Nice to see Charles, too, after they gave Charlotte 'Diana' as a middle name. I thoroughly approve not that the Cambridges are bothered what think

HollowTalk Fri 27-Apr-18 11:13:39

My son is Louis and yesterday I saw that Louis was 4-1, so I bet £10, not thinking really that they'd choose it.

HollowTalk Fri 27-Apr-18 11:14:05

I did wonder if they'd pay out if Louis had been his second name - bet they wouldn't!

Colonelpopcorn Fri 27-Apr-18 11:15:50

I like it. One of Williams middle names is Louis.

Hollow talk - great news smilesmilesmilesmile

It would be interesting when you collect your winnings to ask them if you would have won if Louis was a middle name

Enjoy spending your winnings smilesmilesmilesmile

Do you think people will get payouts on Arthur though? as it's one of the names? can you each way bet on w baby's name?

I didn't bet btw!

@Hollowtalk (and anyone else with a Louis) - Legoland are offering free entry to until July 19th to anyone with the first name Louis

FreshTart Fri 27-Apr-18 15:47:18

I have no thoughts either way on the name Louis but in the Royal Family, its the name of a paedophile so Im a bit sick about that

HollowTalk Fri 27-Apr-18 15:51:03

Don't be so bloody stupid, FreshTart.

HollowTalk Fri 27-Apr-18 15:52:01

RustyBear, my son's in his 20s, so wouldn't go to Legoland! There are lots of MNetters with little Louis though, so they'll be happy!

Sunrise888 Fri 27-Apr-18 15:53:33

It's a lovely name! Now that I've heard it, I want it for my next born (though I won't now that its popularity is about to spike).

kimlo Fri 27-Apr-18 15:55:19

you don't get anything if it's a middle name. I bet on Louis for George.

Does anyone think Prince Harry looks really quite miserable these days? He doesn't look madly in love and excited about his forthcoming wedding at all. He used to be much more happy go lucky. Perhaps it's just growing up, but I wonder if he's wondering what he's let himself in for.
Meghan looks muted and overwhelmed too.
