Princess baby name tips

While some of these names may seem old-fashioned, keep in mind that old-fashioned names are coming back into style. You can always pair a fussy name with a crisp modern name or a short middle name. Try Aimee Lee, Henrietta Jane or Melanie Grace, for example. Princess baby names can often be shorted to nicknames as well, depending on the name that strikes you. For example, Maggie is a common nickname for Marguerite and Lucy can be a nickname for Lucienne. If you want to go truly regal, pair two royal baby names, as double-names were common in many monarchies.
