So was he named after George Zimmerman or George Bush? (sound of leftist heads exploding at the thought of either)

From Washington Post:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/britains-royal-baby-is-named-george-alexander-louis/2013/07/24/1127c89c-f48e-11e2-a2f1-a7acf9bd5d3a_story.html

EXCERPT:

Royal baby is named George Alexander Louis

LONDON — The bookies were right: He Who Had No Name is now Prince George.

His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge, to be exact.

On Wednesday, that regal name was bestowed on Britain’s two-day old royal baby by his parents, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Although the thoroughly modern royal couple chose a thoroughly modern way to distribute the news, via Twitter, “Prince George” is as old-school as it gets.

No fewer than six British kings have borne the name George, with its personal symbolism for William making it an obvious pick for months in betting pools across this island nation. The last of the six was George VI, William’s great-grandfather, whose valiant battle with a speech impediment as he assumed the throne following his brother’s abdication was dramatized in the Oscar-winning film “The King’s Speech.”

Well, some people were hoping he’d be named Trayvon...

However, I’m glad they named him after Washington.

He’s named after his great-grandad, the current Queen’s father. He of “The King’s Speech.” The one who didn’t want the throne.

Someone posted on FR yesterday that it would be funny if the royal couple named their baby - George.

This is hilarious!

The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.

But every one will know him as Nancy.

Sounds like gender confusion is inevitable... by the Queen signed off on gay marriage, so it’s all good. /sarc

Since Queen Elizabeth’s father was named George it was pretty obvious that was going to be the baby’s name..you can just hear leftists now “They named the baby after George Zimmerman” LOL you know it’s coming..poor Obama, he was hoping they would name the baby Trayvon after his hero, too bad. Congrats to the Royal Couple on the birth of their baby, It’s nice seeing life celebrated

It takes a little time for the tummy to get back to normal especially with someone as slim as Kate == and George was a good sized baby.

This whole royal jazz is just crazy.

The royal family sucks millions and millions of tax dollars and live high on the hog while the average Brit slogs their way through life.

Jetting off here and there. Living in palaces, catered night and day. The best of everything....and what do the royals contribute?

‘________look more pregnant now than before?’

Possibly because the dress was a bit too snug.
I saw the tummy also.

Very few post-pregnancy figures have a sort of flat tummy - especially 2 days after birth.
I’m betting her figure will be back quite soon, altho she can take as long as she’d like to accomplish this, IMO.

Bush 41
Bush 43
Zimmerman
Costanza?

“Alexander” after:
The Great
Bonaparte
Haig, “I’m in charge now!”?

“Luois” after

Too much fun here!

Not simply because of the monarchy. A socialist parliamentary government goes a long way in suppressing the peasants!

Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

It's like all the Henry's who showed up in the Plantagenet line. "George" is the most established name for a king in the Hannoverian (Oops! I mean Windsor) line going back to George I.

I believe, when it comes to the stuffy and form-bound computers, the last name is still Windsor, as in the "House of Windsor" which is the Royal Family's surname since George V changed it during the unpleasantness of WW1 (1917) from Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.

Thus the poor kid is burdened with George Alexander Louis Windsor and maybe by his 60s in the 2070s, George VII. One does wonder, with all of the efforts at dissolution and social changes, if there will still be an England or if he will face east and south 5 times a day. I won't be around then so what do I care.

You and others got to this before me:
‘GAL’

Guessing the royal couple never heard the warning of names’ frst initials spelling something comical or worse.

One of our daughters is ‘JET’ - but so long ago before the ‘warning.’ Not bad anyway.
Another family member was ‘HEM’ before marriage.
Being ‘HET’ now is no big deal!

Are you talking about the British royals, or the American pretenders?
