Nearly a month ago, Pippa Middleton welcomed her first child with husband James Matthews. Although the super-private couple didn’t disclose their baby boy’s name at the time, The Mail on Sunday now reports that their son’s name is Arthur and his middle names are Michael and William.
Pippa and James aren’t quite members of the royal family, but their one-month-old has some serious royal references in his name. Let’s break down what Arthur Michael William Matthews’ moniker really means.

Michael, on the other hand, is the name of Pippa and Kate’s father, Michael Middleton. The biblical moniker means “who is like God” and has Hebrew origins.
Finally, William means “strong-willed warrior.” We wouldn’t be surprised if this was a tribute to Arthur’s uncle and Pippa’s brother-in-law, Prince William. He and Kate were “thrilled for Pippa and James” for welcoming their first child, a rep from Kensington Palace said.
Pippa welcomed baby Arthur on October 15 at 1:58 p.m. London time, weighing 8 pounds and 9 ounces, royal correspondents reported at the time. She gave birth at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital, where Kate also delivered her children. The new parents haven’t publicly responded to the news of their first child, but they have been seen with their little one in public.
Nearly a week after the child was born, Middleton and Matthews were seen taking a walk with their baby in a stroller. In the days that followed, the new mom was spotted again, strolling with her baby boy in a sleek carriage, sporting some casually-stylish looks. For one appearance, she wore a printed Kate Spade dress, and for another, she wrapped up in a gray motorcycle jacket.
