As both names are diminutives of Margaret, Mette-Marit would be Margaret-Margaret or perhaps Meggie-Margie

Thanks for the info, I didn't realize they were two different names within Catholic families. But generally, I think we would Anglicize any non-British form of Elizabeth. (Although we don't for royals - Princess Elisabeth of Belgium is still Elisabeth, and Isabel II of Spain is still Isabel II.)

This thread hasn't been posted in for a while, but I thought I'd Anglicize some of the names of members of the non-reigning houses.

Romania

Michael: The same
Anne: Ann
Margareta: Margaret
Radu: I'm not sure if there's a translation for this
Elena: Helen
Nicolae: Nicholas
Irina: Irene
Sofia: Sophia
Maria: Mary

Parma

Carlos: Charles
Annemarie: Annmary
Luisa: Louisa
Cecilia: The same
Margarita: Margaret
Jaime: James
Viktoria: Victoria
Zita: The same/not sure
Carolina: Caroline

Prussia

Georg Friedrich: George Frederick
Sophie: The same
Carl Friedrich: Charles Frederick
Louis Ferdinand: Lewis* Ferdinand
Cornelie-Cecile: The same
Marie Cecile: Mary Cecile
Christian Sigismund: The same/not sure
Nina: The same
Christian Ludwig: Christian Louis
Irina Maria: Irene Mary

Bourbon-Two Sicilies

Carlo: Charles
Camilla: The same
Maria Carolina: Mary Caroline
Maria Chiara: Mary Claire
Beatrice: The same
Anne: Ann
Maria del Carmen: Mary of Carmen (?)

* = We also use Louis in English, so I'm not sure if Lewis is the legit translation. Although Louis is of French origins, which is why I translated it.
