There was a Spanish infanta named Beatriz, too. She was grand-daughter of Victoria's Beatrice, her mother was Victoria Eugenia of Battenberg, queen of Spain.

When looking at the old Norwegian Medieval kings, Sverre is a common name. There is an Ingrid (as a spouse) as well.

Actually, they named Infanta Elena after the Medieval Spanish Saint, Dominic de Silos (c. 1000). Dominic de Silos was a Benedictine Abbot known for his countless miracles. He is the Patron Saint of Pregnancy. Saint Dominic de Guzman, the founder of the Order of Preachers, or Dominicans, was also named after Saint Dominic de Silos. Infanta Elena was born on December 20, which is the feast of Saint Dominic de Silos

According to knowingtheroyals.wordpress.com, Prince Felix of Luxembourg was named after his ancestor, great grandfather Felix of Bourbon-Parma.

How about the rest? GD Henri, GDss Maria Teresa, HGD Guillaume, Prince Louis, Princess Alexandra, and Prince Sebastien? Can anyone help us please?

as Willem-Alexander stated before, when he ascends to the throne, he will be King Willem IV.
i wonder if Catharina-Amalia will drop her second name, and be Queen Catharina I.


Felipe and Letizia daughters:
Leonor: Because its traditional, has lots of history behind, and a name her parents liked.
Sofia: named after her paternal Grandmother La Reina Sofia.
De todos los Santos: Spanish royal tradition


Crown princes usually follow tradition and name their heirs with a lot of meaning, history and somewhat traditional.
for other children, they are "free" to chose a name to their liking, such as rare and modern names.

to me, i like traditional names and with history behind, because its what they are, royals (Christian, Ingrid, Elizabeth, Leonor, ...). but i enjoy when they name their children with diferent and unusual names (Vincent, Eleonore, Ariane,...), but i dont like weird and funny names (Luana, Zaria, ...) . so its kinda safe to follow traditions.


as Crown Princess Victoria's baby will be the heir of the heir, im sure it will have some meaning and history behind!

As for Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume, I believe he has been named after his uncle and godfather Prince Guillaume.
As for the Grand Duchess, both her mother and maternal grandmother were also named Maria Teresa.

The late Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte has been named after Josephine de Beauharnais.

Bertil - after the King's uncle

Madeleine - a Bernadotte family name
Thérèse - not sure
Amélie - Bernadotte family name
Joséphine - after Joséphine Bauharnais, the wife of Napoleon Bonaparte
I would guess that the name Carl Philip is after Karl Filip, Charles Philip, Duke of Södermanland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia as he had been Duke of Värmland, as prince Carl Philip is today.

As for Madeleine, there has been a Swedish queen with the name Sofia Magdalena, Sophia Magdalena of Denmark - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Thérèse - it was the name of a Bernadotte princess, Princess Therese of Saxe-Altenburg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Amelie - not a Bernadotte name, but a Beauharnais name, Amélie, Amélie of Leuchtenberg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia , was the younger sister of queen Joséphine and the original owner of the Leuchtenberg saphires, http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...o_corpo%29.jpg that queen Silivia likes to wear.

Dagmar is a Scandinavian name, either from the Slavic Dragomira, meaning precious, peaceful, or from a Vendic name Dargmara, meaning maiden of the day.

I believe that Prince Joachim of Denmark's name came from Saint Joachim, the father of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the grandfather of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Leslie2006, I think Josephine most likely comes form Josephine of Leuctenberg, the wife of Oscar I of Sweden, so of Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte.

Joséphine of Luechtenberg was the daughter of Eugène de Beauharnais, the only son of Joséphine de Beauharnais, the empress of Napoléon I, and she was very probably named after her grand-mother, so the name is after both Joséphines.

Wikipedia says that Prince William has been named after Prince William of Gloucester.
Philip is after the Duke of Edinburgh.
Arthur is also in the names of Prince Charles and King George VI, so I thought it was some kind of tradition.
Louis is after Louis Mountbatten.

The original meaning of the word Karl/Carl/Charles/Karol is "man."

In the Arabs royal families they use the ancestors names, they keep repeating the old names.

Why yes, "karl" still means "man" in Swedish, even though the "l" isn't pronounced anymore except in the given name "Karl" or "Carl". But orginally, it didn't just mean "man", but "free man", as in "not a slave".

I always had a strange impression: Catholic royal houses generally use names of saints and Protestant royal houses use ethnic, classic and uncommon names.
