Royal names for girls?
I'm looking to compose a list of 'royal' names for girls and boys (I will also post in boys thread) I'm looking further afield than just Britain and for slightly quirkier options:
Does anyone know if Isadora, Theodora or Aurora (aside from Disney princess association:) can be tied to royalty anywhere?
Theodora was Byzantine empress. Google her. I prefer Dorothea, I think this is name common among German princesses.
I love Margarethe. I think this name is common amogn danish princesses, but I am not sure.
Aurora (I couldn't find any ties to royalty. Aurora is the Roman God of dawn.)
Theodora (Multiple Byzantine Empresses & empresses of Trebizond)
Theodosia (Queen consort to Leo V)
Isadora is the middle name of one of the youngest members of the Norwegian royal family. She's not a princess, but one of the King Harald and Queen Sonja's grand daughters. Her full name is Leah Isadora, her sisters are Maud Angelica and Emma Tallulah. The Norwegian Crown Prince's daughter s called Ingrid Alexandra.
I think Anastasia is a pretty great choice. Margrethe is the Danish queen I believe. It's also one of the middle names of the prince and princess's first daughter (her full name is Isabella Henrietta Ingrid Margrethe I think). Other notable choices:
Ooooooh love Beatrix, Wilhelmina, Dorothea especially! And thanks Ottilie... You're back :) !!
Zara - She's in line to the British throne but pretty far down the list. I like the name a lot.
Belisent (one of the semi-mythical daughters of Charlemagne - the man was real, some of the daughters are hard to substantiate)
Laetitia/Lettice - Rival/enemy of Elizabeth I of Britain. Laetitia is much prettier than Lettice.
My favorite is Rania for Queen Rania of Jordan.
