To all of you who care the Royals have finally given their baby a name. By GEORGE! It’s a boy and George is his name!

Check out the details after the break.

Prince William and his wife, Catherine, announced Wednesday that their new baby, the third in line to the British throne, will be named George Alexander Louis.

The announcement lays to rest the final major mystery surrounding the infant, who was born Monday. The formal title of the son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as the prince and his wife are known, is His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.

The name George has been the front-runner for days with British bookmakers. Alexander, his second name, was also in the running, along with James and Henry.

There have already been six British kings with the name George. The BBC reported that Alexander is a favorite name of the baby’s mother. Louis is apparently in tribute to Louis Mountbatten, a royal relation who was killed by an Irish Republican Army bomb.

Time will tell if we will call him King George or will he have a nickname. Anyway we are happy for the royal family.
