Must correct the British Royal Family name--it is Mountbatten-Windsor. HM the Queen in 1960 issued a proclamation declaring that all descendents that aren't royals shall carry that name--but now it seems to have gone a step further--when Princess Anne married the first time, she was registered as Anne Mountbatten-Windsor.

I am now more confused than before. Would a synonym for "House" be Dynasty? And would family name be dependent on marriages as well? For example, say a Queen from House & Family name "X" marries someone with Family Name "Y"..... their kids (and the next ruler) would be from House "X" with Family Name "Y"?

I have to correct you helleniki.
The royal family her in Denmark just have 1 family name and that is Glcksburg and not the other names.
The reason that the RF dont have the other names is that when Denmark lost the rigths over Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg the RF also lorst the rigth to juse the names.

I believe that the Greek royal family uses de Grecia (Spanish for of Greece) on their passports. It is also tagged onto Alexia&#39;s children&#39;s names after Morales, which is the Spanish custom.

Isn&#39;t Great Britain&#39;s "real" last name "Saxe-Coburg-Gotha" which they changed to "Windsor" to sound more English?

Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha never has been and never was a surname. It is a territory. All the Saxonies were ruled by various members of the house of Wettin. Royals do not have "family names" or surnames unless so specifically decreed. They do have house names. Here are the agnatic names for the royal families, so you can see which families have expanded over various territories:

Albania - Zogu
Austria-Hungary & Bohemia - Habsburg-Lothringen
Belgium - Wettin
Brazil - Bourbon (Orlans-Bragane line)
Bulgaria - Wettin
Denmark - Oldenburg (Schleswig-Holstein-Snderburg-Glcksburg branch, ends with The Queen) followed by Laborde-Montpezat
France (Imperial) - Bonaparte
France (Royal) - Bourbon (feuding branches)
Germany - Hohenzollern
Great Britain & Northern Ireland - Wettin (ends with The Queen, Windsor by decree) followed by Oldenburg (S-H-S-G line, Mountbatten by decree)
Greece - Oldenburg (Schleswig-Holstein-Snderburg-Glcksburg branch)
Italy - Savoy (feuding branches)
Liechtenstein - Liechtenstein
Luxembourg - Bourbon (Nassau-Weilburg by decree)
Monaco - Grimaldi (through a few female lines)
Montenegro - Petrovic-Njegos
The Netherlands - Lippe-Biesterfeld (Orange-Nassau by decree) followed by Amsberg
Norway - Oldenburg (Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glcksburg branch)
Portugal - Bragane
Roumania - Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen (ends with the current King, apparently)
Russia - Oldenburg (Schleswig-Holstein-Gottorp-Romanov branch, ends with Maria Vladimirovna) followed by Hohenzollern
Serbia - Karageorgevich
Sweden - Bernadotte
Spain - Bourbon

The Bourbons had a wide expance, with territories that also included the Sicilies, Naples, Parma, etc. Wettin had all the Saxon duchies, the Saxon grand duchy and the Saxon kingdom. Oldenburg&#39;s reign was also vast and far flung. Habsburg-Lothringen also held Tuscany and various other tracts of territory.

Interesting enough, technically, the Royal Families of Greece and Norway are also members of the Royal Family of Denmark specifically. Both are descended from Danish kings in the male line and are entitled to Danish princely titles.

Norway, a branch of Denmark, uses it as a house name still... So I suppose you need to be corrected.

Few of these familes have surnames. The house name for Denmark, Norway, Greece and agnatically of Russia and soon-Great Britain is Oldenburg.

For example, say a Queen from House & Family name "X" marries someone with Family Name "Y"..... their kids (and the next ruler) would be from House "X" with Family Name "Y"?
The children are supposed to get their House name from their father... As well as a surname if and only if the father has one.

Thus, if no names changed, Elizabeth II of GB, a Wettin, married Prince Philip, an Oldenburg. Their children would then be Oldenburgs and the Ruling House would change to Oldenburg on Elizabeth II&#39;s death.

If the father only has a surname, I suppose it could then become a House name as well.

Just a quick question-I realize the British Royal family uses Windsor now, but wasn't the name changed in like 1917 because of anti-German sentiments in that area? I do believe thier original last name is Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (or maybe I'm confused and that is the house name...it can happen! :) ) If that were the case, then regardless of the fact that they have been using the sir name Windsor-the British Royal family's true last name would be Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, they just chose not to use it...(IMO)

As I said I could be wrong, it's been known to happen...
