A regal twist: 12 adorable baby names with a royal stamp of approval
After the sad news of the death of HRH, Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, yesterday, we have the royals on our mind today.
The fascination with all things related to the royal family has no end, something in which the popularity of Netflix' The Crown is a testament to.
Born with gilded birthrights to fame, wealth and beauty, there is something so fairytale-y fascinating about the royal families of Europe.
And never mind the castles and tiaras, these heirs have it sussed when it comes to baby names too.
Here are some of our favourites:
We love this name, and it totally has the royal stamp of approval, as it is the middle name of Princess Catharina-Amalia of the Netherlands. (Oh, and did we mention her sisters are Alexia and Ariana – two more gorgeous names, as it happens)
Prince Amedeo of Belgium's full name is (are you ready?): Amedeo Marie Joseph Carl Pierre Philippe Paola Marcus d'Aviano.
As in Philips, not our collective favourite fashion haunt.
4. Carl (or Philip, for that matter)
Prince Carl Philip is third in line for the throne of Sweden, ya'll.
Princess Theodora is the fourth child of the former King Constantine of Greece and (on her mother's side) also a Princess of Denmark (well for some!). To top that, Theodora is also 350th in line to the British throne. A real blue-blooded princess, in other words.
Prince Felix Leopold Marie Guillaume is second in line for the throne of Luxembourg (and pretty hot too, we'll have you know!)
Princess Infanta Leonor is the eldest child of Felipe and Letizia of Spain.
Princess Grace's grandson is second in line to the throne of Monaco.
Little Ingrid Alexandra is the future Queen of Norway, and the eldest child of Norway's Crown Prince Haakon Magnus.
Prince Nikolai of Denmark is the eldest son of Prince Joachim of Denmark and his first wife, Alexandra.
Swedish Princess Madelaine is 4th in line to the Swedish throne. The Scandinavian beauty has two young children, and is married to US financier Christopher O'Neill.
As in the ruler of Monaco.
