Well "Michal" is spelled "Michael" in English, although even in English there are varieties (especially in the US) in the spelling of names. Also the Spanish "Miguel" is "Michael" in English. I see more women with the name (mostly used as a middle name) "Marie" than "Mary"

In Dutch names are not translated anymore since the Sixties or so. In the past Heinrich became Hendrik (von Mecklenburg-Schwerin), Klaus became Claus (von Amsberg) and Carlos Hugo became Karel Hugo (de Bourbon de Parme) and that was it. Now neither the names of the Dutch royals nor the names of foreign royals are translated. Felipe does not become Philips (of Spain), Guillaume does not become Willem (of Luxembourg) and Charles does not become Karel (of Wales). The original names remain intact now.

As a Spanish given name, it is usually part of the assembled names María del Carmen.

Carmen refers to Mount Carmel (in Hebrew: Karmel) which was the "vineyard of God". In all Spanish countries all over the world you will see names like Nuestra Señora del Carmen (Our Lady of Mount Carmel) or Virgen del Carmen (Virgin of Mount Carmel).

The most beautiful name is Princess Marie-des-Neiges de Bourbon de Parme, an aunt of the current Duke of Parma. Marie-des-Neiges means: Mary-of-the-Snows. Soooo beautiful, so classic.

Oh, this is such a funny thread!.I will post only the "main" branch of each royal family I follow as I can't post every single name.
BRF:
Elizabeth: Elisabetta; Philip=Filippo
Charles=Carlo; Diana=same but pronounced Dee-hana. (Kind of).
Camilla; same but the accent is on the "m": CaMilla...
William= Guglielmo; Catherine=Caterina.
George= Giorgio; Charlotte=Carlotta.
Henry=Enrico..

Spain:
Felipe (See Philip)
Letizia =same.
Leonor =Leonora.
Sofia= same.

Monaco:
Albert= Alberto
Charlene= there isn't a proper translation but seversl smilar names. I daresay that "Carla or "Carlina" are the best ones.
Gabriella= well, that's actually an italian name, so
Jacques= Giacomo


Sweden=
Carl Gustaf= Carlo Gustavo
Silvia= same
Victoria= Vittoria
Carl Philip= Carlo Filippo
Sofia=same
Madeleine= Maddalena (beautiful name, a favourite of mine)
Christopher= Cristoforo. (Not much used in italian)
Estelle= Maristella, but that's not an exact name.
Leonore= Same as Leonor.
Nicolas: same

The way it's done here in the English language now also. Juan Carlos of Spain is known as just that; his name is not translated as John Charles of Spain. The same applies with all the royals - Princess Eleonore of Belgium, Princess Leonore of Sweden, Infanta Leonor of Spain are the 3 best examples that come to mind. But royals' names from history that were translated into the English version of their names throughout historical texts remain translated, such as the many King Charles's of Spain - still referred to as "Charles" and not "Carlos." As many people consider the Pope a monarch, their names would be an exception.
