August was one of the names I thought they might go for. I thought [name_m]Hugo[/name_m] was more likely, but I wasn’t surprised by [name_u]August[/name_u].

It’s so pretty! I love both [name_u]August[/name_u] and [name_m]Phillip[/name_m] (though I prefer the [name_m]Philip[/name_m] spelling), so it’s perfect to me.

It’s actually spelt [name_m]Philip[/name_m] (the same as his great grandfather), the OP just got the spelling wrong.

It’s [name_u]August[/name_u] [name_m]Philip[/name_m] Hawke Brooksbank, according to the [name_m]Palace[/name_m].

Since it appears that HRH The [name_u]Duke[/name_u] of Edinburgh is not doing well, I’m pleased that [name_f]Princess[/name_f] [name_f]Eugenie[/name_f] chose to honor him with [name_m]Philip[/name_m]. [name_u]August[/name_u] is in honor of [name_m]Prince[/name_m] [name_m]Albert[/name_m], The [name_m]Prince[/name_m] Consort, as one of his names was [name_m]Augustus[/name_m].

I really like it! Especially their choice of [name_u]August[/name_u]. [name_m]Augustus[/name_m] is a royal name so it has connections, but [name_u]August[/name_u] is not exactly a classic royal name so it’s refreshing to see.

I think it’s lovely! A great mix of traditional and modern. [name_u]August[/name_u] is such a lovely name, and would be near the top of my list if it dodnt clash with my partner’s surname.
