Camilla is a pretty, feminine name that goes back to the Roman name Camillus. It comes with a famous royal association (Prince Charles’s wife, Camilla Parker Bowles) and a celebrity link (model Camila Alves, who’s married to actor Matthew McConaughey). Pronounced ka-MIL-a, the name also belonged to a legendary Roman warrior who was so fast she could run through a field and turn the grass into ashes. So it’s not only a lovely name but a badass one as well!

One of 15 children of King George III and Charlotte, Princess Augusta was born in London on November 8, 1768. She and her five sisters were forbidden by their overprotective father to marry young, possibly because of what happened to George’s sister Caroline, who got married as a teen, had an affair and was exiled. As with many of her sisters, Augusta never married or had children (they referred to the family home as “the Nunnery”). Even though marriage was never in her future, she was well versed in art and music, which her strict parents encouraged.
