Prince Hussein was named after his grandfather King Hussein.

I'm not sure, but I've always thought that Prince Hashem (both of them) were named after their ancestors, the Royal family of Jordan being Hashemites.

Before WW1 was the House of Saxe-Coburg Gotha (1901-1910) and before that was House of Hanover (1714-1901) Hopefully i am right?? But the House of Windsor started in 1910 just a year before the war.

It was the maternal aunts, and not the maternal grand-aunts.

I'm kind of hoping that the Dagmar name will be reborn in the Danish royal family.

Princess Raiyah's name means "flag," so in a way her name means "flag of al-Hussein." i read about it in Queen Noor's book.

also mentioned in the book, they took a break from traditional family names to name Prince Hamzah, Princess Iman and Princess Raiyah. only Prince Hashim stayed in that way rather.

Madelaine was named after Madelaine Bernadotte, daughter of Prince Carl of Sweden (brother of CP Martha of Norway and Queen Astrid of the Belgians), so a royal history indeed.

Luana and Zaria of Orange-Nassau are new royal names. I hope no other royal will ever dream of using those names again either btw.

In the family tree there´s a Stephanie de Beauharnais, adoptive daughter to Napoleon I. Her grandaughter Marie Victoire Douglas Hamilton married Prince Albert I, they are the parents of Louis II, Rainier´s grandfather. As for Caroline, Prince Florestan I married a dancer called Caroline Gilbert, who gave him 2 sons: Charles III and Florestine. In honor of Charles the most important quarter was renamed Montecarlo. I hope this answers the question, don´t forget that Charles, Charlotte and Caroline have the same origin and meaning.

Technically, Prince Carl's children weren't royal, because he lost his status when he married a commoner woman. But that's just me being picky.

Very interesting thread!

I'm interested in where Pomeline comes from as well. I've done numerous searches throughout the years trying to come up with some etymological information on Pomeline and I've yet to find anything (like what it means, how it's pronounced...)!

As for Luana and Zaria, I like them loads. Not traditional royal names by any means, but they're steeped in mythology. Luana was used for a heroine in Romanian mythology while Zaria is the goddess of beauty in Slavic mythology. It seems Prince Friso and Mabel like names with mythological meanings. :)

Also, I saw someone in a pervious post mention Anastasia "Anna" von Vollenhoven. Her first name came from the fact that she was born on Easter and since Anastasia means "resurrection", her parents thought it an appropriate name to use.

I thought I would add here, too, that Pablo Urdangarín's second name, Nicolás, comes from the fact that he was born on St. Nicholas's feast day, December 6th.

Other names I've wondered about are (in bold print):

Felicia von Vollenhoven
Zenouska Mowatt
Countess Luana's secondary name, Ninette
Isabella Lily Juliana von Vollenhoven
Lady Kitty, Lady Eliza Victoria, Lady Katya Amelia, Louis and Lady Lara Spencer
Maria Carolina de Bourbon-Parma, daughter of Princess Irene
Princess Elisabeth of Hesse-Darmstadt, daughter of Ernst Ludwig and Victoria Melita
Eloise and Estella Taylor
Lady Davina Lewis
Countess Leonore Marie Irene Enrica

Also, why is it that the older Spanish grandchildren, Felipe, Victoria, Juan and Pablo have secondary names (in addition to "de Todos los Santos"), but Miguel, Irene and Leonor (and probably the new little Infanta, as well) don't?

I think a lot of those names on your list were picked because the parents liked them,

In the case of Lady Eliza Victoria I would assume that Victoria is after her mother.

Princess Elisabeth was named after an anscestor, who became a saint. I would have to look up the story, but it was a lady who was born in the house of Hesse (Brabant?). GD Elisabeth of Russia was named for the same lady.

I believe that it only has an explanation . When there were born the first grandchildren of the Kings, the press, instead of calling them by the first name, like the rest of members of the Royal Family, it was repeating the whole list of names.

The worst part took to Felipe Juan Froilán. The Dukes of Lugo, put the name of Froilan, for the saint of Lugo, but today in day it is a slightly common name. To the press it seemed funny, and they started calling the child Froilán. But his family always has been called the child Felipe. I imagine that for the boy to understand this situation has been difficult, because his name is Felipe, but they are called him Froilán.

Ultimately, it seems that they have decided that better one only name, because the certain thing is that will end up by turning mad the children.

- I think that could be some version of Pameline - a Latin name. This name means: Made of honey. Suitable only for girls. It is not so popular name.
- Or maybe from male Pommelraie - a French name. This name means: Lives near the apple orchard. Suitable only for boys. It is not so popular name.?

But I found that Giovanni I Grimaldi Signore di Monaco, Mentone e Roccabruna e Patrizio Genovese (*1382, +1454) wive's name was Pomellina Fregoso (1387/8-1462). She was a daughter of Pietro I Fregoso (1330 - 1404) Doge di Genova and Benedetta Doria (+1410).

And this doesn't have to just apply to the English royalties ^___^

also what names would royalties never name their children?? ^__^ and what are the strangest and unique names that royalties have out there???

hahahaha my friends say i will never be a Princess because Hillary just wasn&#39;t made for the title >__< hahahaha

Wouldn&#39;t it be funny if Gweneth Paltrow&#39;s daughter became Queen&#33;&#33;&#33; QUEEN APPLE&#33;&#33; hahahaha
HM Queen Elizabeth II's full name is Elizabeth Alexandra Mary.
Elizabeth = HM's mother's name, the late Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother,widow of the late King George VI.
Alexandra = HM's great grandmother's name, Queen Alexandra, widow of the late King Edward VII.
Mary = HM's grandmother's name, Queen Mary, widow of the late King George V.
