These Are the Full Names of Everyone in the Royal Family

From Good Housekeeping

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed a healthy baby boy on May 6: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. For his name, the couple decided to look at the royal family tree for inspiration: Archie is derived from Arthur, which happens to be one of Prince Charles's names.

The royals have a long history of picking names that pay homage to family members. For example, Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed their third child Prince Louis Arthur Charles to the family last spring. The names don't exactly fit in with the Emmas and Liams in most nurseries these days, but each pick has multiple ancestral namesakes. Louis (pronounced Lou-ee) pays tribute to Prince Philip's late uncle Lord Louis Mountbatten, who was also Prince Charles's beloved mentor and "honorary grandfather." Arthur goes a long way back, both to the legendary king of Camelot as well as King George VI, the Queen's father, who had it as a middle name. Finally, Charles clearly pays homage to Prince Charles, Louis's grandfather. Uncle Prince Harry — who was born Henry Charles Albert David — also counts it as part of his name too.

That said, a few royals have bucked tradition. Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York (a.k.a. Fergie) stunned the public when they announced Princess Eugenie's name on March 30, 1990. Bookmakers William Hill told the Los Angeles Times that they had taken thousands of bets but not a single one for Eugenie (pronounced YOO-jen-ee). Princess Anne's daughter Zara Tindall (née Phillips) also has an untraditional name apparently suggested by Prince Charles.
