Tradition and heritage are very important for Royals. They tend to get their names from ancestors.     
 
Prince Albert Victor Christian Edward was born on January 8, 1864.   
He was the eldest son of the future King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra of Great Britain.   
Against the wishes of his parents, Queen Victoria chose the names Albert Victor, after her late husband Prince Albert and herself.

Ferdinand I ruled as Prince of Bulgaria from 1887 to 1908. He ruled as Tsar of Bulgaria from 1908 to 1918.     
I like the fact when Ferdinand's son and heir was born in 1894, the boy was given the name of Boris. This Boris became Boris III. There had not been a reigning Boris since Boris II was Emperor of Bulgaria from 970 to 971.

On September 20, 1754, Grand Duchess Catherine (Empress Catherine II) of Russia gave birth to a son.   
Empress Elizabeth of Russia chose his name of Paul. Paul had been the name of Elizabeth's brother. He was the first child born to Elizabeth's parents, Catherine I and Peter I.

King Victor Emmanuel II reigned as King of Sardinia from 1849 to 1861.   
He was the first King of a united Italy. He reigned from 1861 to 1878.   
His regnal name remained Victor Emmanuel II. He did not change it Victor Emmanuel I.

Prince Ludwig of Bavaria (the future King Ludwig II) was born in 1845. His parents, Crown Prince Maximilian and Crown Princess Marie, intended to name the child Otto. However, the Prince's grandfather, King Ludwig I of Bavaria, insisted that his grandson be named after him. They shared the same birthday, August 25th.

His younger brother was named Otto. He became depressed as a very young man and was confined in one of the family castles for most of his life.

Prince Charles of Edinburgh was given the first name of Charles in 1948. There was speculation at the time that he was named for one of his godfathers, King Haakon VII of Norway, who had been Prince Charles (Carl) of Denmark.

^ Charles may have been a nod to the Norwegian King as both he and Queen Maud, his wife, were related to and very close to the BRF. Maud (who had died before the war) was the daughter of Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, who was a princess of Denmark. Carl and Maud were first cousins.

However Carl isn't Charles, and IMO it's just as likely that both Prince Charles and Princess Anne were given Stuart names because of the Scottish Strathmore connection. The Strathmores had been (discreet) followers of Bonnie Prince Charlie, though they had kept away from the rebellions of 1715 and 1745.

After all, Princess Margaret had almost been named Anne, was only stopped because King George V disliked the name, (and you can't get much more Scottish than Margaret.) Instead, the name of the last Stuart Queen was given to the current Queen's only daughter.

Carl is Charles.. its the Danish and German version.  however, I think that chalres was chosen because the queen wanted a royal name with a history, and a Scottish name to honour her mother's side of the family.  Anne is also a Stuart royal name.. so probably that was why Anne was so named.  Andrew was for P Philips father and Edward is a well known and common royal name...

King Constantine I of Greece was named after Constantine XI, Byzantine emperor. Constantine's mother, Grand Duchess Olga Constantinovna was the daughter of Grand Duke Constantine of Russia.

Prince John of the United Kingdom died almost 100 years ago in 1919. Hopefully John as a Royal name will be reintroduced in the British Royal Family some day.
