Choosing the perfect baby name is no easy feat (something Kate Middleton learned prior to welcoming her first son in 2013).
Sure, Middleton and Prince William finally landed on George Alexander Louis for their firstborn, but according to the Mirror, this was almost not the case.
It’s important to note that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge opted against finding out the gender of their child. “Courtiers insisted the pair had not found out the sex of their unborn baby, and friends close to the couple claim William wanted a surprise," royal expert Katie Nicholl said per the outlet.
So, even though the duchess suspected she was carrying a boy (because the baby “kicked so much”), the couple created a list of potential names for both a girl and a boy.
