Symbolic meanings behind Princess Catherine’s children’s names

Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis all have very special meanings, but Princess Catherine has admitted that she and Prince William felt pressured when deciding on their names. The hidden meanings and endearing character traits of the royal children may surprise you.

Prince George’s name’s origin



It seems that George’s nickname may have something to do with his love of working hard on the family farm. According to the baby name resource, George is derived from the Greek name Georgios, which means “farmer, earthworker” and is derived from the root words ge and ergon.

According to, “They are charming, witty, and generally happy people.”

Princess Charlotte’s name’s origin



According to, Charlotte is the feminine version of Charles, which means “free man,” and it was made popular in the 18th century by Queen Charlotte of England.

Young Charlotte might yet pursue a career in ballet since claims that Charlotte’s “have an artistic flair and ‘gift-of-gab’ that makes them natural entertainers”!

Prince Louis’ name’s origin



According to, “Louis is the French form of “Ludwig” and means “famous warrior.” It is a very common name in French aristocracy as well as the British Royal family.

In the website ohbabynames, Louis is described as “a personality that follows the rules and is conservative by nature,” but after his hilarious performance at the late Queen’s jubilee celebrations, we’re sure his mother would disagree.

The Greek word katharos, which translates to “pure,” is the origin of the Princess of Wales’ first name, Catherine. Her husband, William, is “derived from the name Willahelm in Old High German, where wil is a synonym for “will, desire,” and helm is a synonym for “helmet, protector.” The full meaning of the name is “resolute protector.””
