Yes, I love Madeleine's name combination too. It's gorgeous, and I have all the names on a list I have for future children of mine. I have a lot of royal favourites! My taste in names fits in quite well with the royals' tastes, so I think I'd be quite a good royal when it comes to naming children. Since my list is long, I'll only list my most favourite names:

First names
Sophia
Victoria
Alexandra
Leonore
Elisabeth (I love how Princess Elisabeth of Belgium spells her name, with an accent on the E)
Madeleine
Mathilde
Mary
Grace (Mia Grace Tindall)
Eulalia (Infanta Eulalia of Spain)
Magdalena (there have been past Archduchess of Austria with this name)
Catharina-Amalia
Anna
Josephine
Ingrid
Cecilia (Princess Cecilia of Bourbon-Parma, and historical Norwegian Princesses)
Joseph (Prince Joseph Wenzel of Liechtenstein)
Helena
Harry/Henry
Christian
Emmanuel
Gabriel
Noah (Prince Noah of Luxembourg)
Felix
George

Combinations
Madeleine Thérèse Amelie Josephine
Victoria Ingrid Alice Désirée
Alexandrina Victoria (Queen Victoria)

I like the name Victoria and I like my name of course even though no royal to my knowledge current or otherwise has the name of Lucy.

Elizabeth Victoria or Victoria Elizabeth are good names.

Victoria Ann is another.

Stephanie would be a favorite if I had a royal name.
I might have named a daughter Prill, after the lead character in the sci-fi novel The Mote in God's Eye. My mother in law's maiden name (last name) was Prill, so it would have been a natural! Not royal, of course.
I also considered naming a girl after Princess Kaiulani of Hawaii, but I did not have a girl.

Actually, Lady Helen Taylor's middle name is Lucy as she's Helen Marina Lucy. It's her mother's middle name as well, as she's Katherine Lucy Mary. So you do share a name with some royals, but not as a first name. That's still something though!

I missed the original question of this thread - I already have two royal names, but if I had to choose another one or a different one, then it would probably be Magdalena.

I have a weakness for Ingrid. It's such a beautiful name, one of my own personal favourites. I think I would probably choose that as a name if I had to pick a royal name for myself. And if I had to go all in with a royal-length name, it would probably be Ingrid Françoise Margaret Josefina.

I'm 1/4 Greenlandic so I am bound to love Ivalo and Minik – Ivalo in particular. I would have wished they had used Ivik insetad of Minik because Ivalo and Ivik sounds precious, but I love Minik as well.

Full names:
Bertil Gustaf Oskar Carl Eugén
Carl Philip Edmund Bertil
Caroline Mathilde (Caroline Matilda)
Charlotte Marie Pomeline
Cosima Alexandra Rose
George Alexander Louis
Ingrid Alexandra
Ingrid Victoria Sofia Louise Margareta
James Alexander Philip Theo
Joséphine Maximilienne Eugénie Napoléone
Josephine Sophia Ivalo Mathilda
Louise Augusta
Margaret Rose
Margaret Victoria Charlotte Augusta Norah
Victoria Ingrid Alice Désirée

Individual names:
Alexander
Anastasia
Artemisia
Bertil
Carl-Johan
Catherine
Charles
Dagmar
Edmund
Françoise
Frederika
Henry
Ingrid
Ivalo
Leonor/Leonore
Louis
Margaret
Matilda
Olga
Oskar
Sigvard
Valdemar
Zenobia

Sophia-Hedwig. I like the sound of the feminine Sophia in connection with the Wagnerian Hedwig. In history there were a couple of royal Sophia-Hedwigs.

The monegasque genealogical tree has some interesting male names like Florestan, Hippolyte, Aurélien and Hercule.

We in Sweden had a princess named Hedvig Sofia. She was the daughter of Carl XI and the sister of Carl XII and Ulrika Eleonora Jr. But I've never heard of a Sofia Hedvig.

I had no idea where to put this so I thought is drop it here. What do you think would happen if instead of being Catherine Middleton, Kate's parents had been crazy hippies and named their daughter something stupid like Hopscotch, Rainbow, Apple, or Blu Ivy? Still the same girl he knows and loves still the same story, but with a really really stupid name.

There were a few:

Sophia-Hedwig of Denmark-daughter of Christian V
Sophia Hedwig of Brunswick-Luneburg- a granddaughter of Frederick II of Denmark. She was the great-grandmother of Johan Friso, the most recent common ancestor of the modern royal families of Europe.
Sophie-Hedwig of Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel- duchess of Pomerania (sophie not Sophia but still)
Sophia-Hedwig of Sax-Lauenburg- one of many children of Frans II
Duchess Sophie Hedwig of Schleswig-Holstein-Glücksburg- named for her mother (1 above her)
Sophie Hedwig of Saxe-Merseburg- granddaughter of Sophia-Hedwig of Sax-Lauenberg

I love the name Madeleine. I think it has a very pretty sound to it. In general I do like the more classic Royal names like Alexandra, Sophia, Victoria, Catherine, Philip, (and variants) Alexander, Christian and Nicholas, though I'm not so keen on George. Estelle is very unusual and I do wonder what Victoria and Dan have planned for baby no.2!

Or if William and not Peter had married Autumn. Can we picture a Queen Autumn? Name wise he chose a traditional consort. We could have had considering previous dating as a queen consort, Queen Davina, Queen Rose (which actually would be fitting), Queen Arabella, Queen Carly, Queen Olivia or Queen Jecca.

Maybe it's because I'm Australian and Charlene is considered a bit of a bogan name here, I've never come to terms with Princess Charlene, lovely though the woman is. If Harry had married Chelsy Davy she would of course have been Duchess Chelsy which doesn't really have a good vibe either.

Uh, No. Say Harry was made Duke of Suffolk, Chelsy would be HRH The Duchess of Suffolk, not Duchess Chelsy. And in reality would be HRH Princess Henry, Duchess of Suffolk (as Kate is HRH Princess William, Duchess of Cambridge). They lose the right to their first name, unless 1. the queen makes them a princess in their own right 2. they become queen (kate would be Queen Catherine as queen consort) 3. they divorce and then their name would be Kate, Duchess of Cambridge or Chelsy, Duchess of Suffolk, the title being a last name.

I was using the vernacular in a jokey way. I know that she would be the Duchess of Suffolk (if that was the title that was chosen, probably Sussex, actually) but was just pointing out that I didn't think that Chelsy was a particularly appropriate first name for a duchess and a royal. I didn't mean that I believed that people would go around formally addressing her as 'Duchess Chelsy'.
