Names of the Habsburg family

´

History was always my favorite subject at school. There was a time, where I read a lot about the Habsburg family. The Habsburgs were over 500 years the rulers of big parts of middle Europe. Such a family also had very interesting names. Last year I read a book about the infancy in the Habsburg family.

´

I wrote some of the names, which were mentioned, down. All this girls were born between the 15 and the 18 century. Some of them became queens and some died in infancy.

´

Isabella Clara Eugenia

This name sounds very stylish and modern, but it´s the oldest on my list. I also noticed that the initial letters together result in the word ICE. Ice could be an original nick name for girls, to whom Isabella sounds to frilly.

´

Maria Antonia Josepha Benedicta Rosalia

As a result of the rising popularity of Benedikt, Benedicta could be a great version for girls. Rosalia might appeal to parents, who like names, which have a Mediterranean feeling.

´

Marianna Apollonia Giuseppa Antonia Scolastica

Apollonia is a long loved favorite of mine, but nowadays it seems to extinct.

Scolastica with the meaning pupil is a very rare name. Besides this princess, I never saw this name somewhere.

´

Gregoria Maximiliana

´

Ludovica Francisca Elisabetha

´

Katharina Renea

Renea is probably a version of Renata.

´

Maria Josepha Clementia Anna Gabriela Antonia Francisca Dominica Theresia Eva Plecida

This princess received the amount of 11 names. I think that they wanted to honor as much godparents as possible. Among them, there are also some extraordinary and rare ones like Clementia, Dominica and Plecida

´

Maria Theresia Walburgis Amalia Christina

She was the mother of Marie Antoinette and other 14 children. Maria Theresia was the most famous queen of the Habsburg monarchy.

 ´

Maria Carolina Ludovica Josepha Joanna Antonia

 ´

Maria Eleonora

 ´

Maria Leopoldine

 ´

Maria Antonia Josepha Johanna

This was the birth name of the archduchess, who later became famous as Marie Antoinette.
