Princess Eugenie Shares Her Son’s Name!

Princess Eugenie Shares Her Son’s Name! | Name News | Scoop.it
Eugenie, the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, share three photos of her family and her son’s name: August Philip Hawke Brooksbank. Such a strong name!

In her Instagram Stories, Eugenie disclosed more information on how she chose her son’s names: “On his grandfather’s birthday weekend, thinking of my grandfather, we are introducing our little boy. He is named after his great grandfather and both of his great x5 grandfathers.” Eugenie is, of course, referring to her grandfather Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. The name August comes from Queen Victoria’s consort Prince Albert, who had Augustus as a middle name. Hawke is likely a family name of Jack’s, though no details have been confirmed on this yet.

Clare's insight:

Welcome, August!
