Princessy Names?

(27 Posts)

Ever since I was a little girl, I've loved fairy tales and princess stories.

For me, I feel like Aurora, Lillian, Evelyn, Eleanor, Florence, Cecily, Clara and Isobel remind me most of princesses. They all seem to go well with my boys list (George, Dexter, Henry, Stanley, Edward, Charlie & Louis), and they all feel like little princesses to me. (No, I am not trying to be sexist by saying all little girls are princesses or anything like that).

What names make you think of princesses?

Anne, Margaret, Beatrice and Eugenie grin

The usual. Elizabeth, Anne, Caroline, Margaret.

I have trouble sounding my 'R's so even though I quite like it, I'd be avoiding Aurora as 'Owworwah' doesn't sound very regal grin

Belle
Elizabeth
Victoria
Arabella

Matilda, lots of European princesses throughout the centuries were Princess/Queen Matilda's.
Like this thread, I'm a fan of regal names too!

The names most commonly given to real princesses are actually remarkably sensible and don't make me think of princesses at all (Anne, Elizabeth, Mary, Margaret, Victoria, Catherine, Anne, Joanna etc)

Names that make me think of sparkling pink castles, handsome princes, velvet dresses and fire breathing dragons are:

Aurelia, Arabella, Annabella, Ariadne, Anastasia, Adrianna, Belle, Brunhilda, Bianca, Catriona, Carolina, Cordelia, Cassandra, Calliope, Clarissa, Christiana, Christabel, Carlotta, Delilah, Elisaveta, Emmeline, Eleanora, Eloisa, Evangeline, Francesca, Frederika, Felicity, Florence, Felicia, Fenella, Gabriella, Georgiana, Genevieve, Hermione, Henrietta, Isabella, Isadora, Juliana, Juliette, Josephina, Katerina, Liliana, Lucinda, Louisa, Lavinia, Miranda, Madeleine, Natalia, Octavia, Ophelia, Philippa, Priscilla, Persephone, Pandora, Rowena, Robina, Sapphire, Seraphina, Sylvia, Tatiana, Tabitha, Valentina.

Disney princess style I think of Celeste, Lucinda, Melissa and Serena.

For historical accuracy (and some queens in there too, strong women!) rather than Disney fluff:

Antoinette
Catherine
Beatrice
Marguerite
Marie
Genevieve
Victoria
Elizabeth
Margaret
Stephanie
Caroline
Eugenie

LePetitPont Sat 15-Mar-14 09:22:13

Ps Eleanor is a great name - Eleanor of Aquitaine was one of the most powerful women of the Middle Ages smile

What about the royal houses of Europe....?

Amongst the princesses (and various titles) there are...

Beatrix, Alexia, Catherina, Ariane, Laurentien, Eloise, Leonore, Mabel, Luane, Zaria(The Netherlands)

Silvia, Victoria, Estelle, Leonore, Madeleine, (Sweden)

Sofia, Victoria, Irene (Spain)

Martha, Maud, Leah, Emma and Astrid (Norway)

Isabella, Josephine, Elisabeth, Athena, Marie and Benedicte. (Denmark)

But then many of these real princess names are not actually very "princessy" and are quite ordinary!

If you mean very feminine names with a certain romance I would say Raphaela.

For a classic name used by actual women who were/are Princesses I would say Catherine.

Tatiana and Anastasia. I love those names!
