Is it a bit sad of me to start yet another silly game, but in the midst of debating the merits of Chardonnay over Wayne for the new Cambridge baby, I got to wondering whether there is indeed a (real) “Royal” name for each letter of the alphabet?
How about TWO per post, one boy and one girl?
If I may, I’ll start
Adelaide (granddaughter of George III and mother of Queen Mary)
Arthur (he of the Round Table, also there was one who was a son of Queen Victoria, the Duke of Connaught)

Not sure Camilla counts does it? As she was not “royal” when born or christened.

Diana of course
David which was Edward VIII real name
