We should also remember that had she been male, Margrethe would have been named Christian. By naming her son Frederick she's continuing the tradition of alternating monarchs and establishing herself as Christian.

Viscount Linley's Children

Charles Patrick Inigo

Charles: is after the Prince of Wales.
Patrick: is the patron saint of Ireland - Charles's mother was born in Limerick.
Inigo: is after Inigo Jones, who is said to be Linley's hero.

Margarita Elizabeth Rose Alleyne

Margarita: is a diminutive of Margaret, her paternal grandmother's name.
Elizabeth: I assume is after the Queen Mother, although I'm not 100 % sure as it could be after HM.
Rose: was personally selected by Margarita's brother Charles.
Alleyne: is a name in her mother's family.

I know they're not really royal!

HM (Elizabeth II)

I remember hearing that she was actually named after Elizabeth I, and not The Queen Mother like I assumed.

Yes I know; which is why I said "a name in her mother's family" for Alleyne. The other reason was because I knew that either the Viscountess's mother/grandmother shared the same name, but wasn't sure which.

She and Prince Henrike have also said that the saw it as a possibility that the numbers of the Frederik's and Christian's would be the same. Because until now the number of the Christian's is one higher then the Fredederik's. But as it is now Margrethe II. will be succeeded by Frederik X. wo will be succeeded by Christian XI.

Name of Serena's mother is Virginia Alleyne, grandmother's name was Dorothy Alleyne. So it looks like female line tradition.

In 1836, he married Princess Elisabeth of Prussia (1815-1885).
This Princess Elisabeth is the ancestress and great-grandmother of Princess Elisabeth of Hesse, daughter of Ernest Louis.
Prince Oskar (Oscar) of Prussia was the fifth son of Emperor Wilhelm II of Prussia.
Wilhelm named his son Oskar after Oscar II, King of Sweden.
Was Prince Philip of Greece named after Prince Philip of Hesse?

Not exactly. It was more a naming tradition, denoting his place as first born son. His father and grandfather were both Frederick William. His great grandfather who was alive when he was born was William. But that is because Kaiser William was a second son. His older brother was Frederick William. The kaiser's father and grandfather both held the name as well. He broke the six generation tradition when he named his eldest son William.

Victor he shared in common with his father, and was likely in honor of his grandmother Victoria. Augustus was a family name, but the masculine form of his own mothers name.

Princess Ingrid Alexandra was named after her great-grandfather, King Olav V of Norway, originally Prince Alexander of Denmark. She and her younger brother were also named after members of their maternal and paternal families.

Quote:
Two days after Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway welcomed their new daughter, the country's prime minister Kjell Magne Bondevik revealed the little one's name.

The newborn heir to the throne is called Ingrid Alexandra – a moniker, revealed the statesman, which carries significant royal weight.

Ingrid, a popular Norwegian girls's name is also a prominent name in the Bernadotte family tree, including Queen Ingrid, the current Queen Margrethe's mother. "The name… is also used in the crown princess's family, and is therefore a fine combination of the two," explained Bondevik. He also remarked that Alexandra is derived from King Olav, the baby's great-grandfather, who was originally called Alexander.
Quote:
Norway's new baby prince will be christened Sverre Magnus. Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg announced the name after a special Council of State was held at Oslo's Royal Palace Monday morning.

Stoltenberg, who had the official privilege of publicizing the name after King Harald announced it to an assembled government, said the name has "long and good traditions in Norway," and also reflects the names of family members on both his parents' sides.

He has always used only his first name, still, the press referred to him as Haakon Magnus.

I always thought that little Josephine of Denmark was named after Josephine Charlotte of Belgium who was the daughter of Leopold III and his first wife Princess Astrid of Sweden. Josephine Charlotte was first cousin to King Harald of Norway.

It's also interesting to see how William referenced Kate, as there has been discussion in some threads about their titles and how they are represented on documents, etc.

Likely everyone knows this, but: why does every male royal name seem to have Louis in it? But never Louis as the main name? How is Louis related to the BRF line? And why do we never have a Prince Louis? Thank you in advance.

He's not technically a Royal, but Lord Nicholas Windsor's youngest son is named Louis.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte, General News Part 2: May 2016

William , George & Edward have Louis as part of their names. The source is most likely Louis Moutbatten who was Philip's mother brother. Charles was super close to him so that would explain William Arthur Philip Louis.
