Cybersquatters have leapt at the chance to register domain names referring to the new royal baby, Prince George.

Within moments of the baby's name being announced... ...were taken.Domain Squatters Jump on Prince George Domains [bbc.co.uk]
One buyer of a royal baby-related domain has put it up for sale at 10,000.

We know what the boy will be christened, all we want now is for the family to use his middle name! Apart from stuffing the domain squatters it would really confuse the English to have an king Alexander the fourth.

:: detour to lookup ::

He wouldn't be IV. He'd be I. Same as James. Unless they're shifting to the Spanish system of chronology, where Alfonso XI of Castile was presently followed by Alfonso XII of the whole shebang. This must have seriously annoyed the non-Castilians.

In any case, surely I speak for everyone when I record my first serious reaction as "Oh, puh-leeeze."

@lucy24, the Spanish system sounds the same as the United Kingdon system. The rule is that the number is whichever is higher from the English or Scottish dynasties. Dual numbering was only used between James VI and I and Queen Anne. Sounds as if it would confuse the Dominions as well as the English.

Alexander I - 1107 to 1124
Alexander II - 1214 to 1249
Alexander III - 1249 to 1286

Well, he's also got the option of being neither G nor A nor L. (On another forum, someone posted under the header "It's a GAL" :)) But "Louis" frankly seems unlikely. And "Alexander" sounds like the kind of thing that would garner a "Thanks but no thanks" response from the Scots.
