Kris Allen & Katy O’Connell Name Son Oliver Neil
Oliver Neil Allen — though it’s really a trio of first, middle, and last names, this little guy’s moniker is made up of traditional first names! Each one happens to be cuter than the next, just like his parents!
Kate Middleton & Prince William Name Son George Alexander Louis
The royal couple had a different set of rules to follow when naming their son — after all, he will likely go on to be the King of England! George, Alexander, and Louis are three classic names that reference a long history of Europe’s royal families — but they are quickly becoming the most popular names in Britain!
