Royal families around the world have their unique customs and traditions when it comes to choosing baby names, and the British monarchy is no different.

Royal parents refrain from wacky names that celebrities are known for. Many of the members of the royal family have been named after former monarchs, which is why there are a lot of them who share the same names.

You've probably already noticed that there are a lot of Elizabeths, Georges, and Philips. Even William and Kate opted for traditional appellations for their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

But there was one royal who wasn't going to settle for just any name for her sons.

As we all know, the late Diana didn't really like playing by the book so when the time came for her to pick names for her children, she was adamant about her choices.
