Let me tell you that the idea comes from Constantine, his children are way too smart to come up with things like that
ΤωνΕλληνων!!!How do you like it for surname??

Theoretically, royals don't use surnames, they use dynasty names, which aren't always the same thing. For example, the BRF is the Windsor dynasty, but the surnames assigned to EIIR's male-line descendants will be Mountbatten-Windsor, even though they will be members of the Windsor dynasty. As long as Constantine is a king, even a deposed one, he doesn't see why he should have a surname when his fellow monarchs use only their dynasty names.

I still think that Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg sounds better but if you say that Ton Ellinon is the right one then I'll believe you

Maybe

all those historic names sound better,but they are to long to pronounce,so 'tonEllinon' that's how we all know!

The Kings of Greece have always had the title of "King of the Hellenes", just as the Kings of Belgium have been "King of the Belgians".
Cadet members of the family are "of Greece" or "of Belgium".
The Belgian Royal Family don't appear to have a surname these days either.

For those of you who were wondering, I can confirm that Phillippos does attend Georgetown. And I think he's a sophomore, but I'm not 100% sure on that one.

Not quite, all the kings of Greece. Otto was "of Greece" during his reign. "Of the Hellenes" was supposedly due in part to a desire not to upset the Wittelsbachs.

Theodora and other royals

Watched her on TV during the wedding of Alexandra Berleburg and Frederik. At Alexandra´s wedding she was 15 and nowbody seemed to talk to her. At Frederiks wedding she was 21 - and nowbody seemed to talk to her. Don´t know but it´s my opinion that she will have problems to find a partner. She´s very tall but not pretty in my opinion and if you are a girl and not pretty it ´s even worth to be tall! In contrast to Marie-Chantal no rich american male student is interested in a quite poor not pretty european princess. I wonder whether she ever marries, I mean she studies some kind of theatre in Brown university - will she ever earn her own money with that?

I definitely do not adopt your comments about Theodora; I just wanted to remind people that these kind of stuff would go around for Alexia as well: that she's not pretty, and too old to get married etc etc.. And look at her now..: She's got a great family

I too disagree with your assessment. She is pretty, however, she is not "model" pretty or "model" thing. It is unrealistic for us to expect many people to look like the "ideal" beauty. That is why models get paid so much. They are not supposed to look like the rest of us. She was born a princess, not a model. There is a big difference. If she doesn't find a husband, it is more because of her shyness, than because of her looks or weight. Men like confidence and playfulness, they don't like mousy and shy women.

I think one of the main reasons she went into drama school is that she needed to get rid of that kind of shyness

She really went to a drama school to get rid of her shyness? Interesting!

If men are not looking favourably at Theodora based on superficial reasons because she's too tall or not pretty enough in their eyes (and beauty is in the eyes of the beholder), then those are the very kind of men Theodora probably wouldn't or shouldn't be marrying anyways. If someone is that vain or shallow, then they're not worth it.

Theatre actors may not make a lot of money, especially in comparison to movie actors, but they make enough to live. And I doubt that her parents would let her be outsted onto the street because she couldn't make ends meet.
