For classic girl names that stand the test of time, look no further than the royal family for inspiration. Some names go back centuries, repeated in each generation to preserve the continuity of one of the world's oldest institutions, while others are newcomers to the royal history books.
You can't get much more royal than naming your daughter after one of Britain's formidable female monarchs.
Queen Victoria's five daughters, who all had multiple middle names, provide endless inspiration for a girl's name with a royal tradition.
While Prince William and Kate MIddleton went for a traditional name for their daughter Charlotte, many of the names of younger British royals defy convention, showing that the royal family isn't afraid to break with tradition.
Look beyond the British royal family for a girl name that you're not likely to hear in the schoolyard.
For a more exotic royal baby name for your girl, look no further than the Russian monarchy.
