Beatrice Elizabeth Mary

How is it decided what a child will be named? I mean, is there a list of royal names given to the parents and they are told to pick four per gender? LOL.

I like the commonly used Royal names, which many of the family all have (Elizabeth, Alice, Mary, Victoria), but I also really like Eugenie's middle name of Helena. For the boys I like Henry/Harry, James and Freddie. I like the addition of Theo to Viscount Severn's middle name.

For full names I like James Alexander Philip Theo (mainly because of the Theo) and Eugenie Victoria Helena.

I also like that Lady Louise Windsor's name is almost the same as her Aunt Anne's name. Anne Elizabeth Alice Louise and Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary. Nice touch.

I will never understand why royalty have to name the majority of their children such boring and over used names. You can still have tradition with names like Margaret Rose, Eugenie, and Andrew without having 30 Elizabeth's, 100 Charles, and 1000 Henry's running around.
As for the regnal names, thank gawd for Queen Victoria being named after her mother and her uncle being a butt about her being named after him.

But tradition in this case is good. Specially if you think about William and Catherine (possible) future children. I wouldn't like a Queen Mariah or King Jayden, argh! OK I'm exaggerating here, but if considered that one of them could become a monarch it is better to "play it safe". Maybe a 2nd and 3rd one would have less popular regal names. As long as is not with a creative spelling or after a fruit/place, we will be fine.

You don't have to name someone Jayden or Mariah, like with Margaret Rose you had tradition and something unique and different. Plus seeing as how most of these monarchs change their name when they become king you can put the stale boring name in there somewhere. There are traditional British names that don't sound so boring, i.e. Victoria, Nicholas, Stephan, William (please use this MORE). Elizabeth is fine, at least it's not so boring, but to be different you could go Elisabeth. Borrow some names from another country that transfer over nicely. Sheesh shake it up a little bit. No need for Princess Apple, just broaden the horizons. Maybe Zara should start naming the kids.

But Margaret Rose is pretty traditional for me!
I thing we are talking the same thing just in different sentences.
Look, I'm all for Beatrice, Eugenie, James, Louse and Zara choosing names they like without feeling restricted by some underlying rule. Now, in regards to W&K I feel we'll have to settle for the history books.

After Savannah, I don't think I could be more surprised by Zara's choice of name.

I like the traditional names they can be linked to the family favourites. I think Will and Catherine will choose something traditional. I heard that Charles always wanted to call a girl Victoria maybe if Will has one he will. I also think they will put Diana in there somewhere. Isn't Eugenie actually Eugenia? I don't like Beatrice as a name it isn't good for a young woman. It is ok to go off tradition Zara was picked by the POW so you never know he may have some suggestions for Wills or Harry. I do love Gabrielle Rose that is a really lovely name. Elizabeth is good and I'm sure we will see that again in the future.

I was thinking about this name a few days ago. I love it cause it's regal enough and they could use Ella as a nickname
