What do you think of the new royal's name?

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (a.k.a. Prince William and Duchess Kate) welcomed their third child, a boy, earlier this week, and everyone has been patiently waiting for the pair to announce the name of the new royal baby. Baby Louis! Well, Prince Baby Louis, if we're getting technical.

The name Louis is part of both the baby's father's name, William Arthur Philip Louis, and of his older brother's name, George Alexander Louis. That evening, she emerged from St. Mary's hospital in central London - with ideal hair, no less - and returned to their home at Kensington Palace, a short drive away.

Aside from this surprising Harry Potter connection, the name "Louis" holds a special meaning to Prince Philip, whose grandfather was Prince Louis Alexander of Battenberg.

The name likely pays tribute to William's great-great uncle Louis Mountbatten - the last British Viceroy of India before independence in 1947 - while Charles is the name of William's father. Mountbatten had been 79 years old when the IRA detonated a bomb on his boat that August; he and three others were killed, including Mountbatten's grandson. "At the time I could not imagine how we would come to terms with the anguish of such a deep loss, since for me Lord Mountbatten represented the grandfather I never had".

It is also another of Prince William's middle names. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son will travel home to Kensington Palace. Louis is also the middle name of Queen Elizabeth II's youngest child, Prince Edward Antony Richard Louis. "Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well".

The source reportedly told the publication: 'George and Charlotte were with the baby for 25 minutes and were very excited to meet their new sibling'.
