The most recent news we had of the Prince's name was when William teased his son's name as he left the hospital saying, “You’ll find out soon enough”.
The name they landed on came as a surprise because it was in 10th place among English oddsmakers. Alex Apati of Ladbrokes stated that the prince's name has "caught both bookies and punters by surprise”.
Introducing, Prince Louis!
Prince William and Kate Middleton have finally agreed on the name of their baby boy!
It looks like the baby boy's full name will be Louis Arthur Charles. Kensington Palace even said, "the baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge." I wish my co-workers would refer to me as Queen Ellen K, but alas those days have not come to fruition haha.
According to People magazine, "Louis (pronounced “LU-EE”) means “renowned warrior” in French, and is likely a tribute to Prince Philip, whose grandfather was Prince Louis Alexander of Battenberg." Louis is also part of prince William's full name, William Arthur Philip Louis. So this name was definitely not picked by just simply pulling a name out of a hat!
Interestingly, Arthur, means “bear” in Celtic. In terms of medieval history, King Arthur was a legendary figure who was head of the kingdom Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table. This baby definitely has a lot to live up to!
