Regarding Prince Edwards middle names i have read in the book called Royal Children that his middle names were taken from his godparents. From what I remember Prince Richard now the Duke of Gloscshire (sp) was one of his godparents. As for the Queens grandchildren the only ones I know who they were named after are Peter and Zara Phillips.

Peter Mark Andrew- Peter was his paternal grandfather Major Peter Phillips, Mark after his father and Andrew after Prince Andrew Duke of York.

Zara Anne Elizabeth- Zara was a name that was thought of by Prince Charles, it means bright as dawn. Princess Anne liked the name so it became her first name. Elizabeth is after the Queen and Anne is after her paternal grandmother Anne Phillips.

Many seem to think that the name David in the British Royal Family is after the Duke of Windsor. But the Queen Mother's favorite brother was named David and it seems more likely to me that this other uncle may be the source.

Getting new ideas into the royal families can be a good thing.

But when they begin naming their children after several fruit-sorts or trees... I think a line has been crossed. I don't think Prince Oak is a very royal name presently.
has any queen or princess maybe changed her name in the last years when getting married

It's hard to say as to weather or not Prince Hamzah of Jordan, was named after a relative. KH and QN chose names with beautiful and pious meanings, in order to define their childrens respective characters

Prince Hamzah: Hamzah means Lion

Princess Iman: Iman means: Faith, Free, Belief and Void of Care.

Princess Haya: Haya means Life

Princess Zein: I think means Goodness

Princess Aishah: named after the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w.s. second wife A'ishah R.A (The first female Jurist in Islam)

Princess Noor Al-Hamzah: Noor means light. If you translate her full name Noor Al-Hamzah it translates as: Light of the Lion.

King Abdullah: Abdullah means Servant of Allah s.w.t.

King Abdullah's Wife Queen Rania Al-Abdullah: Rania means Princess. Her full name Rania Al-Abdullah translates as: Princess of the Servant of Allah s.w.t.

Prince Faisal:means Decisive

Prince Hashim: Hashim means Generous

Prince Ali: Ali means Nobile and Sublime

Okay, this may sound corny, but I was reading a book and the author believed that Prince Andrew and Sarah purposely named Beatrice so that could shorten it to Bea, as in the bees on the Ferguson family shield. Knowing Andrew's and Sarah's sense of humour, it could well be true, it wasn't the official given reason. Because Sarah liked the name when she was writing a book on Queen Victoria, it was around the same time she found she liked the name Eugenie.
