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?
