    The nobility follows tradition when it comes to naming their children—often, similar names repeat each generation, and then each bearer of the name adds another rich layer of historical meaning. Here are some royal names rooted in aristocracies across Europe and beyond.

      It’s ashame that history facts are being changed…………. I studied in history that the Ratliffs’ name in England or Europe were the robbers
      and thieves……. On google ———can’t find a thing about that……….. Guess that is why those people came to America to make a name
      for themselves here.

      Radcliff is not the same name as Ratliff—————-

        My mother told me that in the past, the name Llewellyn was the surname of the royal family of Wales.

        It’s ashame that history facts are being changed…………. I studied in history that the Ratliffs’ name in England or Europe were the robbers
        and thieves……. On google ———can’t find a thing about that……….. Guess that is why those people came to America to make a name
        for themselves here.

        Radcliff is not the same name as Ratliff—————-
