Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle,welcomed their second child, a girl, on June 4th. Lilibet Diana is lovingly named for Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, who familymembers call by her nickname, Lilibet. Sidebar: I had never heard this nugget of royal familyinformation before—what a fun reveal! Her middle name, Diana, is of course in honor of herlate grandmother,Diana, Princess of Wales.The nickname as a formal name has becomemore commonin recent years, and Meghan and Harry's new addition is the latest example. Perhaps we'll nowcontinue to see nickname names as a growing trend inpopular baby namelists? From Ellie to Jack, Lilibet to Leo, nickname names aren't sounusualany longer. Plus, if you're choosing a baby name based on a nickname you love, like I did, you'realready halfway there.I love that Meghan and Harry chose a familiar and loving nickname for their daughter, as they bothclearly care so much about the Queen, despite their exit from the royal family and the ensuingcontroversies over the last few years. In choosing Queen Elizabeth's nickname, they are paying tribute to a side of the Queen that onlythey know. What a wonderful bond Lilibet will have with her great-grandmother.
