Royal House of Norway

King Harald; old Viking-Kings in Norway was called, Haakon, Olav, Harald and Magnus.
Crown Prince Haakon; the crown prince was named Haakon Magnus and used these two names for very long He dropped the last name when he turned 18
He was named after King Haakon but Sonja's brother is also called Haakon
Magnus is also a name from past kings. One of them was Magnus Lagabøter (the Lawmaker.)
Princess Ingrid Alexandra; There was a Norwegian queen named Ingrid also Mette-Marit's paternal grandmother was also named Ingrid.
Alexandra is from Alexander, which was the one of King Olav's four names that he was known as before he became Olav. It is also the name of his maternal grandmother, and one of the names of Princess Ragnhild.
Princess Martha Louise; Named Märtha after father´s mother, Crown Princess Märtha of Norway, and Louise after great-greatgrandmother, Queen Louise of Denmark, daughter of Carl XV of Sweden and mother of Haakon VII of Norway.
Maud Angelica; Maud Angelica was named after Queen Maud but Angelica is a name they liked
it could also be that they wanted something with M and A. Märtha and Ari are big on the symbolism.
Princess Astrid Maud Ingeborg; was probably named after Crown Princess Märtha's sister Astrid, but also because it's an old norse name. Her two other names: Maud and Ingeborg are from her two grandmothers.
Princess Ragnhild Alexandra; The Princess got the name Ragnhild from the mother of Norway's first King: Harald Fairhair (Hårfagre.) She is also named Alexandra for Queen Alexandra of Great Britain.



thank you so much norwegianne and Larzen

the dutch royal house

Queen Beatrix Wilhelmina Armgard; Wilhelmina is of course after her grandmother. Armgard. Her father´s mother was Baroness Armgard
Prince Willem-Alexander Claus George Ferdinand; Willem = from Willem of Orange of course. After the Kings Willem I, Willem II and Willem III, he will be King Willem IV.
Alexander = Beatrix and Claus loved the name and the name is already often used in the family (in the past).
Claus= his father's name
George= also one of his father's names (full name of Claus was:Claus George Willem Otto Frederik Geert)
Ferdinand= is the name of one of his godfathers: Ferdinard von Bismarck
Princess Catharina-Amalia Beatrix Carmen Victoria; Catharina - Although her ancestors carried this name, she was not named after any of them.
Amalia - Like the name Catharina, many of her ancestors carried this name, however she was not named after any of them.
Beatrix - This name was given in honour of her paternal grandmother, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands.
Carmen - This name was given in honour of her maternal grandmother, Carmen Cerruti Zorreguieta.
Victoria - Her father, Prince Willem-Alexander, said her birth was a "victory." So he named her after the latin word for victory, which is Victoria.

thank you so much Dennism, The Watcher, montecarlo

Beatrix Wilhelmina Armgard Beatrix was chosen because the name means 'she who makes happy'.
Juliana Louise Emma Marie Wilhelmina Juliana was named after the mother of the father of the fatherland (william of Orange), Juliana of Stolberg. Louise comes from Louise de Coligny, 4th wife of William of Orange and a staunch protestant, Emma was her maternal grandmother (Queen-widow Emma of the Netherlands, nee Pss of Waldeck-Pyrmont) Marie was het paternal grandmother (Dowager Grand Duchess Marie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, nee Pss of Swarzburg-Rudolstadt), Wilhelmina comes from her mother and all the traditional Willems i the family.
Johan-Friso Berhard Christiaan David, Johan-Friso also is a family name. Stadholder Johan-Willem-Friso inherited the positions & titles from King/Stadholder Willem III. Friso comes from the province of Frisia in the north of the Netherlands, the father of JWF & JWF himself were only stadholder of Frisia, and after the death of Willian III of the other dutch provinces as well. Bernhard is his maternal grandfather, David...rumours have it that David comes from a David that the queen was in love with during the early 60-ties, an israelian sheepfarmer who Crownprincess Beatrix met when they were involved in charitywork for the people who suffored from an eartquake in Persia (now Iran). No idea where Christiaan comes from.
Constantijn Christoph Frederik Aschwin Constantijn is named after the king of Greece. I am not sure about Christoph, but I believe it comes from a relative of Prince Claus, Christoph von dem Bussche, Frederik also is a traditional name frequently used in the family, the last time for Prince Frederik, 2nd son of King Willem I. Aschwin is the brother of Prince Bernhard (Prince Aschwin of Lippe-Biesterfeld)
Irene Emma Elisabeth Irene means peace, so this also contains a wish from the parents, just before WWII ravished the Netherlands. Emma was the maternal grandmother of Queen Juliana, Elisabeth comes from Queen Elisabeth, the Queen Mother, godmother of Irene.
Margriet Fransesca Margriet (is dutch for Daisy) was the flower that symbolised hope and resistance (to the Nazi's) in the Netherlands. Dutchmen wore the flower in their coats, to show hopes for a free and bright future. Fransesca comes from her godfather, Franklin D. Roosevelt.

This maybe out of the scope of your research, but:
William Arthur Philip Louis-the William was for either(take your pick )William the Conqueror, or for the late William of Gloucester, brother of the present Duke; Philip for Prince Charles' father, Louis for Lord Mountbatten.
Victoria Eugenia Julia Ena of Battenberg (later Queen of Spain)-Victoria for her grandmother and Eugenia for Empress Eugenie of France.
Marina Ogilvy-daughter of Princess Alexandra and Angus Ogilvy, was said to have been named for Marina of Kent, a very well-liked member of the UK royal family. (Alexandra herself having been named for Queen Alexandra).
A very fascinating subject!

Felipe Juan Froilán. The son of Infanta Elena. Felipe is for his uncle Crown Prince Felipe; Juan I'm not sure if is for his grandfather King Juan Carlos or of the grandfather of Infanta Elena, the Count of Barcelona; Froilan is the Patron Saint of Lugo and Elena and her husband are Dukes of Lugo.

it doesnt work, how frustrating! Anyway, Johan-Willem-Friso descends from the line:

Willem the rich-- Jan-- Ernst-Casimir-- Willem-Frederik--Hendrik-Casimir II--JWF

He inherits the titles from Willem III, who descends from:

Willem the rich--Willem I-- Frederik-Hendrik--Willem II--W3

How do you think they name Royal babies? can the parents name their child whatever they want or does it have to go through some process with the sovereign agreeing and everything??? And does anyone know why Royals generally have such long names? they have like 10 middle names or something!

It would be a nice tribute to singer Olivia Newton John who is Australian. Perhaps Mary & Fred will consider it? :)

Well conservative or not, Im just glad that royals arent like hollywood celebrities when it comes to naming their children. I understand the desire to be unique but some celebrity kids have totally ridiculous names.
