Hillary's 2nd FORUM

Hey everybody just a few minute ago i was going through a forum suggesting names for Princess Mary's future children's name and as i have noticed before the names are rather conservative....is there an unwritten rule for conservative names such as Victoria, Elizabeth, Louise, Charles etc. etc. ??? 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

Nikolai and Felix are not royal(or common) names in Denmark. And as I confirmed a short while ago, Pauline Grace Maguy is not common for France/Monaco.

As for little Apple, in theory it is not that bad, but I can already imagine the kid going to elementary school and being nicknamed "pineapple" or "apple pie". I hope that she&#39;ll be a strong girl(emotionaly) because that future is almost certain.

In the 1940&#39;s & 50&#39;s Anne & Charles were not considered traditional royal names as they had been out of use since the Hanoverians came to the throne.

When Queen Victoria was named Alexandrina Victoria the names were very uncommon in Britain

In the present generations uncommon names have been

Zara - Daughter of the Princess Royal
Davina - Daughter of the Duke of Gloucester
Helen - Daughter of the Duke of Kent
Beatrice - Daughter of the Duke of York
Eugenie - Daughter of the Duke of York
Columbus - Grandson of the Duke of Kent
Cassius - Grandson of the Duke of Kent
Zenouska - Granddaughter of Princess Alexandra

My point was that they are, or have been in the past, uncommon in Royal circles.

Not to be fussy or anything, but Nikolai is actually quite common here in Denmark, it might not be royal but it&#39;s common. Actually when Alexandra and Joachim chose that name, it was already very popular. Offcourse that popularity has increased a lot (read= TONS) since...

An unusual name by the way is Prince Joachim. "Joachim" is neither royal nor that common in Denmark (it isn&#39;t totally unusual, but we do have a lot more of those Christians and Frederiks runnig around in all ages)

Re Charles. Do you mean they are Royal names or that they are in fact "royal" because if you are I&#39;m getting a bit fed up of not being able to include the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth ( i.e. Zara Phillips) in these discussions.

As for little Apple, in theory it is not that bad, but I can already imagine the kid going to elementary school and being nicknamed "pineapple" or "apple pie". I hope that she&#39;ll be a strong girl(emotionaly) because that future is almost certain.
I recently read an article written by Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof about Apple. She gave a clear insight what it is to be named after a fruit It has been quite though for her

That&#39;s why i think conservative names are better, not to conservative or old fashioned but unusual is not always better

It has nothing with being fed up. They are not royals, simply as that. They don&#39;t "need" royal names. If you must include a maternal granddaughter of The Queen as royal, why not include all descendants of kings and queens as royal? It must stop somewhere.

Of the names I quoted, I&#39;d say Helen, Eugenie and Beatrice are the closest to royal names. They have some precendent.

That is so funny&#33; Though I think Apple is a bit more innocent than Peaches... I don&#39;t know, but Peaches kind of sound X rated&#33;

But I think I&#39;m safe. When I have kids, they&#39;ll be called Olivia or Mary-Olivia (hah&#33 and Frederik.

The name of the woman is Peaches? Wow, her parents were very inspired, weren&#39;t they?

I like unnusual names better but I think that there&#39;re limits. However I would probably give my kids one of those names that are well knowed but not very used. Believe me, having a common name can be as difficult as having an uncommon one. I find it so cool that foreigners find my name(Renata) exotic&#33; It&#39;s very common in Brazil and every time I saw that there was another Renata around I was sssooo disapointed, upset and sometimes a little angry .
