The naming of their daughter, Princess Lilibet, by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, was a way for them to honor their close family members. Born on June 4, 2021, at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California, the couple revealed her name two days after her birth: Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. This name choice was a tribute to the affectionate family nickname of the late Queen Elizabeth II and also paid homage to Harry's mother, Diana, Princess of Wales. Additionally, the name Lilibet holds a meaningful link with her cousin, Princess Charlotte.
The single daughter of the Prince and Princess of Wales was born in May 2015, and her complete name was officially designated as Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Her middle names were selected as a tribute to both the late Queen and Diana. It is noteworthy that numerous female descendants of the late Queen, including daughters, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, share the middle name Elizabeth. This tradition began with the Queen's own daughter, Princess Anne.
Anne's complete name is Anne Elizabeth Alice Louise, and her daughter is named Zara Anne Elizabeth Tindall. Zara and her spouse, Mike Tindall, subsequently decided to call their second daughter Lena Elizabeth.
The initial daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, is Princess Beatrice Elizabeth Mary. Similarly, the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh is Lady Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary. The Queen's grandson, Peter Phillips, and his ex-wife Autumn also opted to name their second daughter Isla Elizabeth.
After the birth of their daughter in September 2021, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi named her Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi.
In the same year, both Princess Eugenie and Zara had sons and decided to pay tribute to the late Duke of Edinburgh by selecting his name as their sons' middle names.
Eugenie's son, born in February 2021, was named August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, while Zara's baby boy, born in March 2021, was named Lucas Philip Tindall.
