Choosing A Royal Baby Name for Your for Your Little Princess

Everyone is so excited about Kate and William's new royal baby news and on 4th May 2015 we heard that the little Princess will be called Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

Royal names, traditional names and old-fashioned names are all back in fashion so to help any parents-to-be find a right royal name for their baby girl, here is a list of some of the best-known names of Queens and Princesses throughout history.

New Royal Baby Girl Name -Charlotte Elizabeth Diana

It's a girl! Kate,Middleton, The Duchess of Cambridge, has given birth to a baby girl on 2 May 2015. Now girls and boys have equal rights to the throne, the little Princess will be will be fourth in line. Royal baby name? Charlotte Elizabeth Diana

What was the betting on the royal baby name?

Kate and William's second baby is a girl - what was the betting on her name? I trawled through a few top sites on the internet and they had these ideas:

Hello magazine thought that Alice was the first choice ad Alice runs in the royal family. Prince Philip's mother was Alice of Batternberg

For the last royal baby Charlotte was top choice of the public and Charlotte it was. Other royal Charlottes were Queen Charlotte married to George III, (on the throne 1760 - 1820. Kate's younger sister, Pippa has Charlotte as a second name.

Then Diana spang to mind - but controversial? Not a bit of it! They were brave I think. Hello magazine sites Elizabeth, Victoria and Mary, all right royal names, to be popular with their readers. Alexandra is one of the Queen's names (but isn't Alexander one of the baby's brother's names?).

The betting, according to PaddyPower, is for Alice, Charlotte and thirdly, Elizabeth. BabyCentre suggests Charlotte, Alice and Grace, in that order.

My choice? I like all of these but if I'd had a baby girl I think I'd have chosen Charlotte. What do you think?

How many royal baby names are there for girls?

A lot! This list isn't exhaustive, nor does it attempt to cover names worldwide - it's a list of names drawn mainly from the royal families of Europe - names familiar to most people in the western world. I've made idiosyncratic choices, though when I felt like it and so you'll find the odd Indian baby name and names from the middle east and how could I not include that famous Queen of Egypt, Cleopatra?

Most of the names are sensible, but some monarchs are just too much fun and so much larger than life that I couldn't bring myself to miss them out.
