What’s the Name of Prince William & Kate Middleton’s Royal Baby Boy? Here’s What We Think
ICYMI, Kate Middleton just delivered her third royal baby—a little prince!—this morning. The little bundle of joy's name hasn't yet been released, and for good reason. Think about it: Finding an adorable follow-up to George and Char is very serious business. William, Kate, if you're still looking for ideas, here are our top picks.
With Charles, Henry (that’s Harry to you), Edward, William and James all taken, Arthur—as in King Arthur—is the only famously royal moniker not currently in rotation. #justsaying
Name of the oldest son of King George, it’s currently a popular pick on many British baby name lists, ranking at #75. Even crazier, its nickname (Freddie) ranks at #17.
The back-story: Queen Victoria loved her hubby so much, she used the name for all of her male descendants. She even signed a royal decree that the Prince of Wales’s first son must have this name. (Worst mother-in-law, ever.) Still, it’s a contender.
Sure, it’s currently in use by Prince Henry Harry, which could cause some confusion, but the name is a classic and a favorite. Chances are it’s on Will and Kate’s list.
A name originated from the notable Anglo-Saxon king, they could call him Alfie for short. (Prince Alfie, aww!)
