Princess Victoria Melita of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (1876-1936) was the daughter of Alfred, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and Grand Duchess Marie Alexandrovna of Russia. Victoria was born in San Anton Palace in Attard, Malta. Her second name of Melita comes from Malta. Thus she was named after a geographic location and not a royal relative.

And there's her niece Marie Melita of Schleswig-Holstein.

A very short nonsense article about weird, unusual, rare royal names after Meghan was added to the BRF: https://www.stuckonyou.co...blog/unusual-royal-names/

At first they have 'Thyra', only mentioned to be the wife of king Gorm. But bypassing other Thyra's in royal circles. The best known off course is Princess Thyra of Denmark (1853-1933), younger sister of Alexandra and Dagmar who became respectively became Queen Alexandra of the United Kingdom and Empress Maria Feodorovna of Russia.

And who would have thought Meghan and Harry's first born would get a very unusual name for a royal baby: 'Archie'.

I am still not over Master Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. He's the Earl of Dumbarton, you dumbasses (not you guys, those idiots who named him). He becomes a Prince the second Charles ascends, as grandchild of the Monarch. I know, let's pretend the first 15 years of his life that he's just Archie. That will make for a smooth transition.

Princess Marie Frederica of Hesse-Kassel (1804-1888) was the daughter of William II, Elector of Hesse and Princess Augusta of Prussia.   
Princess Augusta's name was Christine Friederike (Frederica) Auguste. Her mother was Frederika Louisa of Hesse-Darmstadt.s
I wish the name "Sybilla" would make a comeback in royal circles - hasn't been used since CG's mother, I believe.  Even as a second name - wouldn't Alice Sybilla Frances make a nice name for a 2nd Princess of Cambridge (or even Sussex, in a pinch ).   I would love to see "Christine Frederike" make a comeback in the Danish/Swedish/Norwegian royal name pool, as well.
     
Baroness Sybilla von Dincklage is the daughter of Princess Margaretha, the sister of King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden. Sybilla was named after her maternal grandmother.
Sybilla of Luxembourg (great-grand-daughter of Victoria Eugenie of Spain.)

Here is the lowdown on how these three names should be written ... interestingly, no one's name is "SYBILLA."

1. King Carl Gustaf's mother was born Princess Sibylla Calma Marie Alice Bathildis Feodora of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, spelled SIBYLLA.

2. Baroness von Dincklage was named after her grandmother, and is, thus, named SIBYLLA Louise Ambler. 

3. Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg, Henri's brother, is married to the former SIBILLA Weiller.  She is now SIBILLA of Luxembourg.





Mmm, I prefer when it's spelled Sybilla but to each his own.

Still interesting, wonder if it is personal preference of the royal parents or local differences.

Maurits is the Dutch equivalent of the masculine given name Maurice

- Prince Maurits of Nassau, (1567–1625), military leader of the Dutch Republic, son of Willem I of Orange
- Count Johan Maurits of Nassau, (1604–1679) also known as 'the Brazilian'
- Prince Maurits of the Netherlands (1843-1850), second son of King William III
- Prince Maurits of Orange-Nassau, van Vollenhoven (born 1968). Oldest son of princess   Margriet and nephew of Queen Beatrix.


Mauritius, officially the Republic of Mauritius, is an island nation in the Indian Ocean. In 1598 a Dutch squadron under Admiral Wybrand Van Warwyck landed at Grand Port on the island and named the island "Mauritius" after Prince Maurits of Nassau (Dutch: Maurits van Nassau) of the Dutch Republic.

Emperor Francis Joseph I was Emperor of Austria and Apostolic King of Hungary.  
His grandnephew Charles I was Karl Franz Joseph Ludwig Hubert Georg Otto Maria.  
Prince Francis Joseph of Braganza (1879-1919) was the namesake of his godfather Emperor Francis Joseph I of Austria.

Wondering which spelling the emperor used himself:
Franz Josef
Franz Jozef
Franz Joseph
Francis Joseph

or other?

The German language wiki says Franz Joseph. According to the same wiki about his name:

"...The monarch, previously known as Archduke Franz, assumed a double name as emperor. At first it was planned to name him after the grandfather, the first emperor of Austria, Franz I., Franz. Finally, it was decided by the addition of his second name Joseph to remember the people still popular Reform Emperor Joseph II (1765-1790). For this reason, one chose the unusual for a monarch from the House of Habsburg double name Franz Joseph I...."

"..The double-name written without a dash thus signaled both constancy and progress. In view of the suggested eternity of the Austrian monarchy, the name was officially always used with the Roman atomic number I. (read: the first, monogram: FJI).

In the other official languages ​​of the monarchy the name was I. Ferenc József (Hungarian), František Josef I (Czech), Franciszek Józef I (Polish), Franjo Josip I (Croatian), Francesco Giuseppe I (Italian), František Jozef I (Slovak), Franc Jožef I (Slovenian), Фрањо Јосиф (Franjo Josif) I (Serbian), Francisc Iosif I (Romanian), Франц Йосиф I (Ruthenian).

Due to the common practice of transferring the names of monarchs in the respective national language, there are also in other languages ​​corresponding name forms. The Emperor was therefore also known as Francis Joseph I of Austria (English) and François Joseph Ier d'Autriche (French).

First names were often adapted to the spelling reform introduced in Austria in 1902/1903. A tribute book of the Viennese city administration to 60 years of reign of the emperor therefore gave its name 1908 in the spelling Franz Josef I..…."
