·4 min read

Baby names fit for a king or queen may be top of mind as the world mourns Queen Elizabeth II. The late queen, who reigned for more than 70 years, had four children. Those four children produced eight grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren so far.

While royal titles are bestowed only by the reigning monarch, baby names are chosen by the parents. If parents-to-be are searching for royal baby names befitting of a prince or princess, here is the late Queen Elizabeth's family tree.

Royal baby names inspired by the British monarchy

Queen Elizabeth was born Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor on April 21, 1926.

Elizabeth married Philip Mountbatten in 1947. Biblically, the name Philip means "lover of horses."
