If not wanting to go back to the Anglo-Saxon past, they could chose the Germanic variant of Ethel, which is Adel-, for example Adelaide (meaning noble nature), after Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen , after the queen of William VI, queen Victoria's uncle. Perhaps Victoria Adelaide Elizabeth Caroline?

I don't think there's any royals with my name in the present or in the past. Cátia or Katia is my name, both are correct.

Reminds me of Ekaterina Gordeeva, who goes by Katia. She's still my favorite figure skater of all time.

It may not be a royal name, but it's certainly quite beautiful!

Katya/Katia is the most common nickname for the Russian Ekaterina, the Russian form of the name Catherine.

oh really? I didn't know my name was a nickname of Catherine in Russian, in my Country Katia is actually a sole given name and not a nickname. Very interesting!
Thank you for sharing the info HRHHermione and Meraude!

Most Russian names have several nicknames or perhaps it's better calling them diminutives, for Yekaterina → Katia, Katiusha, Katen'ka, Kat'ka, Katechka.

Glad to see another Gordeeva fan. Her and her late husband were my favorite couple on ice. I happen to love the name Ekaterina as well, probably more than Catherine, since to me, it sounds more regal and powerful.

My name is Matilda Antoinette - so I share my first name with Crown Princess Mathilde of Belgium, and my middle name with Queen Marie Antoinette of France!

The only Royal that I know of with my middle name Patricia was Princess Patricia of Connaught who dropped her Royal styling after marriage anyway!

The closest my first name can come to anyone of note connected to royalty and the aristocracy would be Deborah, Duchess of Devonshire that recently passed away. Its an old Hebrew name though. My middle name though is Ann and I remember well as a preteen and coming into the phase of trying to define my name as a personality, for a while there I would spell my middle name as Anne as that's how Princess Anne spelled hers.

Grace of Monaco's middle name was also Patricia.

Closest I come is my last name is derived from a Roman emperor, though we anglicized it a few generations ago.

My middle name is the surname of a noble family, a baronecy. Biggest claim for them is one member was the maternal grandfather of Jane Austen. Their home Stoneleigh abbey is open to the public, and a bit of a draw as Jane lived there at some point with her mother.

First name is not unknown among the aristocracy including one Middleton friend

One of the few people in my family without a royal name. My German/English/Irish family have chosen many names from the royal tree of the UK and Germany.

There is a Prince Robin. He is Princess Benedikte's brother in law. If Gustav never marries and has kids (doesn't seem likely), Robin is next in line.

Robin was also a common nickname for Robert. Wouldn't be surprised if a few royal Roberts in the past used the nickname.
