Names
 
If you had to choose a name from a list of 'Royal Names' which would it be? Would you be an Alexandra, a Beatrix, a Klaus or a Charles? Which names would you choose for yourself that have been the names of past and present royals?

Well I'm a fan of a few royal names. I like Elizabeth (that one of my confirmation names), Victoria, Alexandra, Irene (thats also my grandmothers name) & Grace (my other grandmothers name). I hope when I have kids & I have daughters I will name them with some of these names. If I had the chance to re-name myself I would be a Elizabeth (with the middle name Anne).

My favourite names are: Mathilde, Victoria, Alexandra, Elizabeth and Theresa (after empress Maria-Theresa):)

LaMinka 10-10-2005 03:36 PM

Of the Norwegian royal names (old ones like two of the daugthers of King Harald III) I like Haakon, Magnus, Louise, Ingrid, Angelica, Isadora, Leah, Alexandra, Cecilie, Cecilia, Maria and Ingegerd
  • Princess Maria, daugther of King Harald III
  • Princess Ingegerd, also daugther of Harald III
  • Princess Cecilie, daugther of King Sverre I and Queen Astrid
  • Queen Cecilia, married ti King Sigurd I
  • Princess Cecilia, daugther of King Sigurd II and Queen Malmfrid
And of other royal names I like Caroline, Elizabeth/Elisabeth, Mathilde, Lusia, William, Laetitia, GabriŽl (I love this names!!), Emmanuel (Okay, I have a Belgian royal brothers crush) and Zara....Have I said that I love the name GabriŽl?? I just totaly loves when Mathilde says GabriŽl with her beautiful voice... Your so lucky Belgium!:rolleyes: ;)

I think I would like to be Sebastian, after King Sebastian of Portugal who died in the deserst of Marocco during the battle of the three kings (three kings died there, 1 portuguese and 2 arabs), and I also like the dutch version of Archduke Lorenz/ Prince Laurents name: Laurens. Maybe I can use them for my sons to be.

I also like the names Constantine and Alexander (yes I am fond of Catherine the Great, who named her 2 eldest grandsons this way and had the hope that the first would become emperor of Russia and the second Emperor of the new Byzantine Empire). Like LaMinka, I am fond of the names Phillipe & Mathilde gave to their sons: Emmanuel and Gabriel.

As for girls (and possible future daughters ;)) I like Grand Duchess Vera's name and of course: Catherine. I also like Anna, after Queen Anna Pavlovna of The Netherlands and Sophie, after her daughter-in-law. Maybe I will make a Anna-Marie out of it, and thus naming the greek Queen AND my two grandmothers & my mother. I also like the name Irene.

I've always liked the name Noor, which means light in Arabic.
I'm also quite fond of Letizia, it's an incredibly pretty sounding name.
Nikolai, Madeline, and Elizabeth are nice as well.

Sancia 10-11-2005 02:31 PM

Louise, like Louise de Belgique
Pauline, like Pauline Ducruet (because I'm fond of this name)
Constance (Constance de Bourbon-Parme, I'm fond of the name too).
Mathilde

Victoria is a wonderful name for a princess. though I think it's a bit much for a commoner.

*SofiaM* 10-11-2005 02:43 PM

Well...I am already named Sofia like the Queen of Spain:) .. But one of my favourites is Mathilde because it is so beautiful!

It becomes more and more common in France, where it makes very commoner. The noble and royal one in France would be Victoire.

Alexandra 10-11-2005 02:58 PM

Alexandra, Elizabeth, Desiree, Caroline, Charlotte, Nicholas, Konstantin, Paul

pollyemma 10-11-2005 03:00 PM

Victoire is lovely.

My name is Emma which is a royal sort of name. i'm very happy with it.

Sofia is great too. you are so lucky to have that as your name. it must make you smile whenever people address you.

Yes Victoire is a lovely name. I love it very much, it's on my list for babies to come.

Britters 10-11-2005 04:11 PM

My list of babies names includes quite a few Royal choices...I think there's only one that's not royal.

1. Elizabeth Victoria
2. Catherine Alexandra
3. Randall Lucas
4. Nicholas Alexander

pollyemma 10-11-2005 04:24 PM

Catherine is very royal.

I hope that when little Amalia becomes queen she'll choose to go by her first name "Catharina." it's the perfect name for a monarch.
