According to Good to Know, Pippa and James chose the name Michael for their first born son for a number of special reasons. 

A source said, ‘Not only is it the name of Pippa and Kate’s father, Michael Middleton, the name also carries a lot of significance for Pippa’s husband James.’

Michael is the name of James’ older brother who disappeared in 1999 while attempting to climb Mount Everest aged just 22.
