Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s cousins ​​with very normal names never used by the royal family before

The potential addition of the title Queen or King to any name significantly changes the rules for choosing an appropriate nickname. When a child’s name becomes known around the world, care should be taken to tick all the historical and family boxes.
