I've heard "teen" in the American and British press, and Constantine hasn't corrected the person saying it that way.

Alexios- Alexia was the beloved name of our late Queen Frederiki,that is why Her Grand Daughter Princess Alexia was named after Her wish!

So, she wrote in Her Book,(Mesure of understanting) that the names Alexandros ,Alexandra and Alexios,Alexia are irrelevant.Alexios means "who protects from evil"so Alexia the femine type. Our Queen WAS AND IS RIGHT!

So, I was completely wrong!I confused the first synthetic(root) Alex(protect)with alke-Alkimos (flexible e.t.c) So,Alexandros is the one who protects his men and Alexios 'who protect from evil!!

Josephine nonews for your name!You remain Biblic! :woot: :flower:

I've heard him pronounce the name Constantine as in Clementine, although I think the "teen" pronunciation sounds better.

I read an interview with HM where he said that family called him Tino. I can see the BRF calling him Tino as well as the SRF and the DRF. I'm sure he is Uncle Tino to his nieces and nephews.

Princippessa is Italian. You can be a 'Duchessa', 'Contessa', 'Baronessa' or something else and sometimes be called a Principessa as well or instead of your actual title. I think Italian titles were sort of out lawed in the 50's or 60's but came back. I'm not sure if distinctions in the heirarchy matter so much like in the old days. If you are an Italian noblewoman you may be called a 'Princippessa' out of respect and flattery even if it's not strickly your title (think). It's just a hangover from Rome meaning woman of high status ~principle citizen ~ in the feminine sence.

Just to be a pest and add to the discussion - in the UK we do not always translate names into English because there is no real English translation because it is made up from so many different languages. Therefore variations of name are so common and un-uniformed we often pronounce their name by their native toung. There are exceptions such as I have read P.Philip being called Philippos before his naturalisation in the UK.

As for Greek and Russian translations into English, it is directly impossible beacuse they use different alphabets so their is no offical correct translation. It is based on individule phonetic translation. I have seen K.Constantine called Constantine, Konstantine, Konstanios, Konstantinos, Constantino etc etc (and Constantine alone pronounced Constan-teen and Constan-tye-n) and Romanov spelt Romanoff.

Basicaly, no one is write or wrong in how they spell the Greek Royal Families names in English. In most published texts the King is Constantine, but as the English 'C' and 'K' are both pronounced the same as the Greek 'K' it is easy to see how variations are created.

The Masculine version of Constance is CONSTANT !

But the feminine version of Constantin is CONSTANTINE in French

As far as my poor education permits I say that Alexandros means the one who protects his men(in Battle) Alexandra the one who protects her man as for Alexios the "one who protects from evil"

"Constantin English Variant of Constantine: Steady, stable. Male"

Baby Names Starting with C, page 9

So according to this page, there is no real difference.

The site also says

"Constance Latin To be knowledgeable. Female"
"Constant English Variant of Constantine: Steady, stable. Male"

So Constance and Constant have two different meanings, but Constant means the same thing as Constantin and Constantine.

I think Sophie would be Sophia in Greek and not Sofia as there is no f in greek, I think.
Could somebody from Greece write all the names of the greek Royals in Greek Letters??
