My mother told me she named me after a Princess Michelle...but I do not know of any Princess Michelle's...??? Anyhow, my middle name is Irene...so there is the Princess Irene of Greece, Queen Sofia's sister. :)

My first name is Georgia & I don't think that there are any royals with that exact name, but there are 2 Georginas - Fürstin Georgina (Gina) von und zu Liechtenstein, mother of the present Fürst; and her great-granddaughter (I think) Georgina "Gina".

I guess you could say I share my name with a lot of monarchs & princes - George/Giorgios/Georg - all the same name.

My middle name is Kathleen, which is a version of Katherine/Katharine, etc...lots of sharing in that name!

I believe she was referring to Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. One of her middle names was Angela.

My name is Louise, I am not sure how many royals I share my name with but I know there is a few.

lise 05-11-2006 04:57 AM

I don't share my name with anyone.

My brother shares his name with Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg ....

iannis 05-11-2006 05:48 AM

It is such a pitty that although my name is the most popular name in Greece, there was never a prince named Ioannis. But taken that it's actually John, I suppose it's the same with King Juan Carlos? Please somebody confirm this :(

ChevalieurduCiel 05-11-2006 06:02 AM

I confirm!Juan is the equivelant of Yannis!All the others ...Totally NOT

leonardinha 05-11-2006 06:07 AM

My name's Gisella, so I share my name with some noble ladies from the past like Kaiserin Elisabeth's (Sisi) daughter, and other princesses from the Middle Ages...

My full name is Christina Maria, but please call me Christina or Kicki. But anyway, there have been many royal Christinas and Marias (or Marys and Maries). Only here in Sweden, there have been two princesses Marias married to Swedish princes, one married to future king Karl IX in the 16th century and one to prince Vilhelm in the early 20th century, and queen Maria Eleonora, who was married to king Gustav II Adolf in the 17th century. Not to mention king Karl IX's second wife queen Christina and their granddaughter queen Christina in the 17th century. Even my sister Gunilla Margareta (called Gunilla) is the namesake of king Johan III:s second queen, Gunilla Bielke, and of queen Margareta Leijonhufvud in the 16th century, crown princess Margareth and princess Margareta and all Margaretas, Margareths and Margaretes in the royal families. Our brother's ful name is Johan Stefan, but he's called Stefan. Johan is the equivalent of all Johns, Jeans, Juans, Giovannis and Ivans out there, and there have been many kings and princes with those names, haven't it? There should be some Stefans too. Our father's ful name is Johan Bertil Adolf, but he's called Bertil. There we have Johan again, and we used to have a prince Bertil over here in Sweden. Adolf has also been a popular royal name in Sweden and Germany. Our mother's ful name is Kerstin Margareta. Kerstin is a Swedish form of Christina, and I have covered that, and I have also covered Margareta.

But being in love with Michael Jackson, I want to ask you: Has there even been a prince or king Michael anywhere?

From the ones who are alive there is the ex King Michael of Romania, Prince Michael of Kent, Prince Michael of Greece...

Furienna 05-11-2006 07:41 PM

There were some royal Michaels then! I just hadn't heard about them! Thanks!

Since I don't follow BRF closely I didn't know the late queen mother's full name. Thank you for your information:).

Lovelydiana 07-04-2006 04:38 PM

My name is Elizabeth so I have many royals with the same name as me. My name is very similar to the Queen's name. Her name is Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Mine is Elizabeth Marie Henry. I also share the last name of Henry with Prince Harry, Henry Charles Albert David!

SusanE 07-04-2006 10:47 PM

I was born a few days before Queen Elizabeth II acceded to the throne. My middle name is Elizabeth in honor of her.

CrownPrinceLorenzo 07-05-2006 01:28 AM

My name is Laurence, so I share a name with two Belgian Royals.

Prince Laurent of Belgium has the same name, but his is the French version.

Prince Lorenz, Archduke of Austria-Este, also now a member of the Belgian Royal House.

And one more:
the newest granddaughter of Queen Beatrix! :D

Laura Elizabeth 07-05-2006 09:58 AM

I associate my first name with Petrarch :D but then I'm a big silly geek.

Laura would be the feminine of Laurent and Laurence, and it's a root of Laurentien.

I share Elizabeth... well, pick one :)
