Quoting Back to Noob Status:" Can anyone answer me why it is only okay for royalty to give their kids four names (three middles)? "


I think because generally they have no last name.

For me, it isn't the number of middle names so much as it is the syllables. Jane Elizabeth Roxanne Winter is shorter than Anastasia Elizabeth Jasmine Seraphina...kwim?

I could care less either way about the syllables ....there's just names I would LOVE to use that I think would flow in some of my name sets. My daughters full name including last has 13 syllables and its only 2 middles... I don't think its that bad.

For me, I want to be able to scream out my kids' full names when they are in trouble without stumbling on the syllables, lol.

I could handle her syllables lol but I am a mom that screams a full name when mad and I absolutely take it into consideration when choosing a name lol There have been name sets DH has picked that I have shot down because I stumble when saying it together.... I know I would just get more mad if I was yelling and then stumbled and stuttered all over their name, my anger would sky rocket lol



on a funny note though when my son was 3 and I used his full name he would turn around and yell " No Sylas Russell me! I no time out!"

Elowen Lilith is great. I also have been loving Solomon lately, although it starts with "S" like Sylas.

Oh and Dorothy Eliza is our back up girl name set in the event we ever have 2 more girls but DH and I fight so bad over girl names and these were the only 2 that we could decide on. He wont even talk about girl names with me anymore and we only plan on having 2 more kids so those are girl sets lol



I'm die hard over the name Winifred and Rosmarie and he loathes them :(

Rosemarie is on my long list. I think it is stunning. And I would kill to meet a baby girl named Dorothy. Dorothy Eliza/Eliza Dorothy would be fantastic!

It's like whatever their title is over. Like William and Kate Cambridge. Diana Wales. Things like that. But there really isn't a family last name ya know?

Yes! I'd love to use Dorothy before Elowen but DH doesnt love it as much.... The only girl name he truly loves is Lyric :roll:



But back to Dorothy I think it's beautiful and I think the NN Dot is like the cutest NN on the planet and it melts my heart lol

Ah! Gotcha. Thanks for clearing that up.



I also always thought it was ridiculous that they rarely go by their names when ruling. Like Queen Victoria's real name was Alexandrina, Elizabeth II's father was named Albert, but when by King George. It kind of defeats the purpose of having their own name if people aren't going to use it.
