Princess Theodora, the daughter of Prince Andrew and Princess Alice of Greece, was born in 1906. She soon acquired the family nickname of Dolla. Her older sister Princess Margarita mistook Theodora for "dear Dolla".

I would like to see the name of Teodosio used for a future Prince/King of Portugal. Teodosio, Duke of Braganza (1634-1653) was the heir apparent of King John IV of Portugal. He died at only 19 years of age.

Magnus II (1024-1047) was King of Norway from 1035 to 1047. He was the son of Olaf II of Norway. Magnus' father Olaf was not present at his son's birth. Sigvat the Skald, the court poet to King Olaf II, was Magnus' godfather. Sigvat named Magnus after the greatest sovereign he knew of Karla Magnus (Charlemagne).

How often? Gee, since that is one seriously silly name, even once was too often. It actually sounds more female than male to me.. Early case of gender neutrality...

Eighth century names are not all that prevalent. This spelling is unusual, but Theodoric is recognizable and means “ruler of the people”.

Queen Juliana was Queen of The Netherlands from 1948 until 1980. She may have been named after Juliana, Countess of Stolberg-Wernigerode (1506-1580), who was the mother of William the Silent.

Wait,wait. The Spanish  name is Hermenegildo. That king became a martyr and a saint. Some people still bear the name - not among royals that I can think of, anyway- but I wouldn't be surprised to also find an Hermenegilda somewhere.

I was hoping Haakon and Mette Marit would call their daughter Kristin, as it is one of the few Norwegian royal names of old which actually belonged to Nrwegian-born princesses. Not that I'm complaining, Ingrid Alexandra is a beautiful name, and it suits her. I'll just have to hope for the next generation

Don't know about Ingrid or Alexandra but Kristin is such a very often used name. Sure my mom's name is Ingrid and my Cousin is an Alexandra, but in young IA's generation those names are not quite as common as a house fly. Kristin on the other hand together with Kirsten, Kerstin, Kersten and Kristina is a very common (as often used not peasant!) name. I like it better when the royal name is both a bit unusual and perhaps has some royal connotations. (which granted the extremely common names Jane, Mary and Elizabeth all have and still are extremely boring) 
Don't like the idea of a princess Kimberley, Madison or (sorry) Savannah.
