Girl's "Royalty" Names

I realized that a lot of my favorite girl’s names have been used in royal families, such as [name]England[/name], [name]Morocco[/name], [name]Russia[/name], etc. I thought it would be fun to come up with a list of “royal” names and the country they came from:

[name]Caroline[/name] ([name]Morocco[/name])
[name]Grace[/name] ([name]Morocco[/name])
[name]Stephanie[/name] ([name]Morocco[/name])
[name]Elizabeth[/name] ([name]England[/name])
[name]Anne[/name] ([name]England[/name])
[name]Diana[/name] ([name]England[/name])
[name]Victoria[/name] ([name]England[/name])
[name]Catherine[/name] ([name]Russia[/name])
[name]Isabella[/name] (Spain)

Any others you can think of?

[name]Alois[/name], Liechtenstein
[name]Maximilian[/name], Liechtenstein
[name]Constantin[/name], Liechtenstein
[name]Tatjana[/name]. Liechtenstein

I am thinking this is what you are looking for hope I am understanding correctly

[name]Josephine[/name]- [name]France[/name]
[name]Anastasia[/name]- [name]Russia[/name]

I like [name]Tatjana[/name] and [name]Alois[/name]! The names from Liechtenstein are very interesting! [name]Maximilian[/name] and [name]Constantin[/name] are boy’s names, right?

[name]How[/name] could I forget [name]Anastasia[/name], which was my dear grandmother’s name!

[name]Beatrice[/name] ([name]England[/name])
[name]Beatrix[/name] (Netherlands)
[name]Eleanor[/name] ([name]England[/name])
[name]Jane[/name] ([name]England[/name])

Great topic! :slight_smile:

The very first [name]King[/name] of [name]England[/name] supposedly came to the throne in 774 [name]AD[/name]. Since then, their wives have been named (I have put some events in square brackets, to give an idea of the timeline) :

Cynethryth (she was surprisingly powerful for a royal wife of the period - coins were issued in her name)
Eadgifu of [name]Kent[/name]
”thelfl”d x 2
Aelgifu x 3
[name]Edith[/name] x 4
[[name]Norman[/name] Conquest]
[name]Matilda[/name] x 2
[name]Edith[/name] (yet another)
[name]Eleanor[/name] x 3
[name]Margaret[/name] x 3
[name]Isabella[/name] x 3
[name]Anne[/name] x 2
[Beginning of the Tudors]
[name]Catherine[/name] x 3
[name]Anne[/name] x 3
[Execution of [name]Charles[/name] I. Herein lies a period in which [name]Britain[/name] had no monarch, but was instead governed by Puritan ‘Lords Protector’. Their wives were named [name]Elizabeth[/name] and [name]Dorothy[/name].]
[name]Mary[/name] x 2
[name]Caroline[/name] x 2
[name]Wallis[/name] (real name [name]Bessie[/name], who was an American divorcee, which forced [name]Edward[/name] III’s abdication)

Queens in their own right :
[name]Matilda[/name] (disputed, never crowned)
[name]Jane[/name] (disputed)
[name]Mary[/name] x 2

The current princesses are [name]Anne[/name], [name]Marie[/name], [name]Alexandra[/name], [name]Beatrice[/name] and [name]Eugenie[/name], but due to technicalities there are other grandchildren of [name]Queen[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] who do not bear the title - [name]Zara[/name] and [name]Louise[/name].

Recently deceased princesses are [name]Margaret[/name], [name]Alice[/name] and [name]Diana[/name].

[name]Princess[/name] [name]Marie[/name] (who is normally known as [name]Princess[/name] [name]Michael[/name] [her husband’s name]) has the full name [name]Marie[/name] [name]Christine[/name] [name]Agnes[/name] [name]Hedwig[/name] [name]Ida[/name]!

Oh! And to add to [name]Caroline[/name] and [name]Princess[/name] [name]Grace[/name] of Monaco, there’s also [name]Charlotte[/name], one of [name]Caroline[/name]'s daughters.

I love royal names, too. :slight_smile:

Thanks for your input, [name]Jill[/name]!

Wow, Twinkle! I love all the historical information on the English throne! Thank you so much. I like a lot of the names you gave. It is interesting how some of the names are repeated over and over, like [name]Edith[/name], [name]Eleanor[/name] and [name]Catherine[/name].

Fun thread!

Titular Consorts of Greece:
[name]Olga[/name] Contantinovnia
[name]Anne[/name] [name]Marie[/name]

[name]Adeliza[/name] - never seen this, would fit in well today.

I guess Redburg and Osburg were male names of that era. I won’t be adding their feminine forms to my list, but these are interesting.
