Royalty is synonymous with power, elegance, and poise, making royal names for girls an in-demand category for parents. These names captivate commoners around the world with their royal ties, as everyone wants their own little princess. They also tend to inspire a surge in the name’s popularity among citizens. This effect was clearly seen with the birth of Princess Charlotte, as parents suddenly couldn’t get enough of the French variant of Charles.

Elizabeth is easily the most recognizable royal baby girl name today, as Queen Elizabeth II has ruled the United Kingdom since the 1950s. This Hebrew classic is tied to several women in power throughout history. This added boost of strength makes her a favorite. Similarly, Diana remains deeply connected to the late Princess of Wales and has an air of sophistication and star power. Other British royal girl names that stand out are Catherine, Victoria, and Margaret. British royal girl names especially have a buttoned-up feel that makes them polished classics.

If you head into European monarchies, you’ll find a host of fabulous royal baby girl names to explore. In Spain, there’s Queen Letizia and her daughter Leonor and Infanta, and in The Netherlands, you’ll see Maxima, Catharina Amalia, Alexia, and Ariane. These names have a fashionable flair that helps them transcend the boundaries sometimes seen in royalty.

Some of the most stunning royal finds come if you travel beyond the traditional castles of Europe. Hessa is an Arabic name meaning “destiny” that is found in several royal circles, including the Princess of Dubai. Salma is another stunner meaning “peace.”

Many royal names for girls have retained their allure for years, like Grace, a name forever tied to Grace Kelly, the Princess of Monaco. Anastasia is another that remains deeply connected to the late Russian princess. With each generation, more royal girl names appear as more royals choose to break from tradition. We can’t wait to see what name comes next!
