The Children of Princess Bathildis of Schaumburg-Lippe

Princess Bathildis of Schaumburg-Lippe was born Bathildis Marie Leopoldine Anna Auguste to Prince William of Schaumburg-Lippe and Princess Bathildis of Anhalt-Dessau. She married Friedrich, Prince of Waldeck and Pyrmont. 
Their children were:

Josias Georg Wilhelm Adolf, "Josias, Hereditary Prince of Waldeck and Pyrmont" - He later became a General in the SS.

Maximilian William Gustav Herman, "Prince Maximilian of Waldeck and Pyrmont"

Helene Bathildis Charlotte Maria Friederike, "Princess Helena of Waldeck and Pyrmont"

Georg Wilhelm Karl Viktor, "Prince Georg of Waldeck and Pyrmont"

Boyish


For me, I love the thought of a frilly name with a edgy boyish nickname to fall back on. It seems to balance out the overwhelming fluff of some of these, making them much more usable for real life.
