We can all now refer to the royal baby as His Royal Highness Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge. Prince William's uncle Prince Edward also has Louis in his full name, Edward Antony Richard Louis.

The couple's third child weighed eight pounds, seven ounces and was born at 6:01 a.m. ET on April 23 at St. Mary's Hospital in London.

Louis is now only the 71st most popular name for a baby boy in England and Wales. The name "Charles" is, of course, in honor of the baby's grandfather, Prince Charles.

As William also had a few royal events to attend last week - where he proved that life as a new dad is exhausting no matter who you are - it sounds like Kate and little Charlotte had Louis all to themselves.
