Other Origin(s):French
Meaning:Royal; the kingly one
Why choose Henry, William, or Archie when there's the equally royal and somewhat conspicuous Royal? This adorably literal boy's name is the perfect choice for those looking to share their royalty obsession with baby. Royal has French and British roots and refers to those with "royal" titles or "the kingly one." This one-of-a-kind name took off following the birth of William and Kate's heir, Prince George, and shows no sign of backing down. If you're looking for something more subtle, consider the short form Roy or noble Duke, Earl, or Prince.
