Royal baby name finally revealed and it's not what was expected

Royal baby Kate and William

Prince William reported for royal parent duty Tuesday, signing the birth certificate of his third child at Kensington Palace, eight days after the little prince was born.

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son Louis Arthur Charles", said a statement from Kensington Palace, the couple's London residence.

Louis isn't a new name for the British royals: Lord Louis Mountbatten was Prince Charles' great-uncle who was assassinated by the IRA in 1979.

The - circumspect - evidence also mounts as it was Prince William who presented the world-famous author with the award of Companion of Honour in December past year - a rather rare honor as only 64 other people have the title.

The name Louis has French and German origins, according to Nameberry, and means "renowned warrior".

A zoo spokeswoman said the camel's name was simply Louis though some were already calling it "Prince Louis". The Duke of Cambridge's full name is William Arthur Philip Louis.

The baby was born weighing eight pounds and seven ounces (3.8 kilogrammes) at 11:01 am (1001 GMT) on Monday with William, the Duke of Cambridge, present for the birth.

It's thought by some that Charles and Camilla may be waiting to meet the new Prince with his mother, Queen Elizabeth II. Prince Louis joins big brother George and big sister Charlotte.

Well some eagled-eyed royalists have gone back to Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding day back in 2011 and pointed out how Kate pronounces her husband's middle name during their vows.

Alexander became a late frontrunner with the bookies after William remarked on the name at a church service, while Albert also entered the betting.

Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their attractive family-of-five!

However, Prince Charles; regular royal commitments and hectic schedule often prevent him from offering the same, hands-on care to his two - now three - grandchildren.

What is the origin of Prince Louis' name?

William and Kate did visit the "Harry Potter" set in London in 2013 and seemed to be fans, Insider noted, but social media couldn't resist speculating about the names even without official confirmation.
