Princess Beatrice named her daughter Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi

Princess Beatrice welcomed her daughter on September 18th, a Saturday. Buckingham Palace sat on the news for 48 hours and then announced the news on Monday. I thought it was nice that Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi got time with the baby and got to leave the hospital before anything was announced, especially since there seemed to be much different “protocols” applied to Meghan and Harry in 2019. Beatrice and Edo kept the name under wraps for nearly two full weeks. The theory was that they would announce the name after Prince Andrew returned to London/Windsor and met his first granddaughter. Sure enough, that’s what happened. Beatrice announced the name with this tweet:

We are all doing well and Wolfie is the best big brother to Sienna.

Wolfie is Edo’s son from his previous relationship with Dara Huang. Beatrice has put a lot of emphasis into being Wolfie’s stepmother, and I like that she included him in the baby name announcement. As for the name… I like it? Sienna is a pretty name. I don’t think it was at the top of anyone’s guess list, but it makes sense. It has an Italian origin – it’s the name of an Italian city – and Edo is Italian nobility. But it’s also a very popular girl’s name in the UK and other English-speaking countries. “Sienna” doesn’t have a royal history but it’s not far off the beaten path either. I’m just glad Beatrice and Edo didn’t go with a name popular in the Victorian era. As for the middle name… so many royal women use “Elizabeth” as their girls’ middle name. I was expecting it. We should all expect it at this point.
