Royal Nicknames: From Frittie to Mapperl

Princess Louise, Princess Maud, and Princess Victoria. Maud was nicknamed "Harry".
In my many posts on royal names, I've found that the royals tend to come up with some very creative nicknames. This post is purely fun, a list of the nicknames I've amassed over the series and a few more I've yet to write about. And on this topic, what's the most creative or quirky nickname you've ever heard?

Princess Victoria Melita of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha - "Ducky"

Maud of Wales - Princess Maud was a lively tomboy and was called "Harry" affectionately

William, Prince of Orange - "Wiwill"

Princess Beatrice of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha - "Baby Bee"

Princess Alexandrine of Prussia - "Adini"

Princess Elisabeth of Greece and Denmark - Called "Woolly" because of her thick, dark hair

Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia - "Shvibzik" which meant "imp"

Maximilian Emmanuel, Duke in Bavaria - "Mapperl"

Maria Feodorovna - "Minnie"

Princess Maria of Yugoslavia - "Mignon"

Prince Friedrich of Hesse and by Rhine - "Frittie"

Louise Élisabeth, Duchess of Parma - "Babette"

Princess Margaret of Connaught - "Daisy"

Princess Helena Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein - "Thora"

Princess Marie of Hesse and by Rhine - "May" or "Maly"

Princess Margaret of Prussia - By the time she was christened her head was covered with short hair like moss, thus she got the nickname "Mossy"

Princess Sophia of Prussia - Called "Sossy", probably because it rhymed with her sister's "Mossy"
