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.

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.

And don't forget Maria Annunciata of Liechtenstein, oldest daughter of prince Nikolaus and princess Margareta (née princess of Luxembourg).

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.
