Royal baby names for boys and girls and their meanings

I really love old fashioned baby names, so spent a lot of time looking them up when I was pregnant. However, I also love royal baby names and lots of these were on our list.

Our eldest’s name is a shortened version of a classic royal name that’s the name of the reigning monarch of the British royal family.

See my post on nicknames for Eliza.

Why Pick A Regally-Inspired Name For Your Baby?

Baby names tend to be cyclical, with rises and falls in popularity over time. For example, old fashioned baby names are currently popular and many make up the top 100 baby name lists, whereas a few years ago many people wouldn’t have chosen these types of name, and they weren’t popular.

However, royal names for babies – baby names picked for and used by members of the royal family – tend to be classic and timeless, as well as beautiful and graceful.

If you want a baby name from a specific royal period, or are just interested in really old names – then look at history books or record books from the time (the library is your best bet).

You can also look at the ONS (Office of National Statistic) Baby Name Data. You can look at the ONS baby name data on its website – this contains historial name data as well as more recent naming trends.
