The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge naming their son George was beyond predictable, wasn't it?

Old news for sure, but what the hell. When I heard that the future King of the Commonwealth* and his wife had named the future future King** George, I thought it was rather anti-climatic. George is one of the most common first names for princes in the UK, along with Richard, Edward, Henry, William, and James. George is the second most common, after Henry and seeing as how they already have a prince named Henry, George would've been the most obvious. I wonder if there's a reason why the Royal Family has such a limited pool of names? Other than tradition, I mean. Succession-wise, we're looking at a Charles III, a William V, and a George VII. At least we will, provided that the Queen doesn't turn out to be a Highlander and lives forever.

*We can all agree that sounds badass, right?
**Unless he ends up becoming a trans person and then a woman or something.
