Naming a royal baby —

It will be a few days before name of new Royal baby revealed, but it is likely going to be one that has been used before.

In my last post ‘ Could the new baby be king’ I talked about whether it is a sign that; the last third child to be King (like the new baby) was William IV who ruled 1830-1837.  Conversely, could the fact, that the new babies, siblings, share their names with William IVs parents be a sign of the new babies destiny? William IV parents were George III and Queen Charlotte. Therefore the name sharing significance diminishes  as it is so common for royal family members to share names.

Together with my colleague Alison Hudson, I have written a blogpost for the British Library’s Medieval Manuscripts Blog on early medieval royal names. Enjoy! Naming a royal baby
