Could it be that Dale Carnegie has a kinship with those 10th and 11th Earls of Southesk?

I'm afraid it's highly unlikely.
Dale Carnegie was born in the United States (in Maryville, Missouri, to be more precise) an doesn't appear to share any common ancestors with the Earls of Southesk.

I wish it were so! Unfortunately, my knowledge of royal and noble families is, at this point, mostly limited to genealogy. I'm ridiculously little informed of the current royal and noble families, although I do try to catch up.

Dale Carnegie changed the spelling of his name from Carnagey when he became a salesman.

My name is Desiree, so Queen Desiree of Sweden, Desiree Clary. I was not named after her; just a coincidence.

I've always adored the name. Although it is unfortunately not at all common here, I hope to name my daughter Desiree one day.

Apart from Desiree Clary, you also share your name with:
- Princess Desiree, Baroness Silfverschiold (daughter of Prince Gustaf Adolf, Duke of Vasterbotten, and Princess Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha)
- Princess Desiree of Hohenzollern (daughter of Princess Birgitta of Sweden and Prince Johann Georg of Hohenzollern)

I doubt I share name with any royal. Or I've never heard any royal named Zelia.

Interesting, thanks for the information. I didn't know there were other Desirees in the royal world.

You are welcome.

Apart from Princess Desiree, Baroness Silfverschiold and Princess Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, there are, in fact, quite a few royal and noble ladies with the name:
- Desiree, Princess of Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach (daughter of Prince Wilhelm Ernst of Eva Kovarcz, and wife of Count Faustus von und zu Hoensbroech)
- Princess Desiree of Schaumburg-Lippe (daughter of Prince Wilhelm of Schaumburg-Lippe)
- Desiree Maritta Bernadotte (daughter of Alexander-Wilhelm Bernadotte, Count Bernadotte)
- Desiree Christina von Rosenborg, Countess of Rosenborg (daughter of Valdemar Georg von Rosenborg, Count af Rosenborg)
- Desiree Martha von Rosenborg, Countess of Rosenborg (daughter of Flemming Valdemar zu Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glucksburg, Count of Rosenborg)
- Oda-Desiree, Countess of Solms-Baruth (daughter of Count Christian-Friedrich of Solms-Baruth)
- Countess Desiree of Castell-Castell
- Countess Desiree zu Herberstein
- Baroness Desiree of Pfetten-Arnbach
- Countess Desiree Schaffgotsch von und zu Kynast und Greiffenstein
- Countess Desiree von Toggenburg

A very regal name indeed.

You have a beautiful and unique name. The only royal with a name similar to yours that I know of was Princess Herzeleide of Prussia, the only daughter of Prince Oskar of Prussia (younger son of Emperor Wilhelm II) and his wife Countess Ina Marie von Bassewitz. I believe her nickname was actually either Zela or Zelia.

A very regal name indeed.
Also do not forget Desiderata of the Lombards, first wife of Charlemagne, who took the name Ermengarde after the wedding. She lived in the 8th century and her formal title was Queen of the Franks. Desiderata is genuine Latin form of name, Desiree is French form, also popularized in the English-speaking world

To my knowledge, No royal has the first name of Lucy. There are a couple of saints named after me but no royals.

I believe Lady Helen Taylor has Lucy as one of her names, and suspect you meant you are named after a couple of saints and not that saints named after you.

Both The Duchess of Kent and her daughter Lady Helen Taylor have Ludy as their middle name. Their full names are respectively Katharine Lucy Mary and Helen Marina Lucy.
