On Friday, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi revealed the name of their daughter, and their baby girl has a special bond with her mother and several members of the royal family, including Princess Charlotte and Lady Louise Windsor.
Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi is the name chosen by the new parents for their baby girl.
Sienna’s middle name, Sienna, is a nod to her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and she’s not the only one.
Every couple in the monarch’s immediate family, including Princess Beatrice Elizabeth Mary, has chosen to give one of their children the middle name Elizabeth.
Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana is the name of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s daughter, while Lady Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary is the name of the Earl and Countess of Wessex’s eldest child.
Princess Anne’s middle name is Elizabeth, and she gave her daughter, Zara Tindall, the same name. Mike and Zara decided to name their second child Lena Elizabeth Tindall.
Peter Phillips, the Queen’s grandson, and his ex-wife Autumn named their second daughter Isla Elizabeth.
When it comes to baby names, the royals stick to tradition.
Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor is the monarch’s full name, a tribute to her grandmother Queen Mary of Teck and great-grandmother Alexandra of Denmark, Edward VII’s Queen consort.
While the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their children’s names within two to three days of their births, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice took nearly two weeks to do so.
Historically, the monarch had to approve the name of any royal baby, and while this is no longer the case, the baby’s name is usually revealed to the Queen before it is announced publicly.
