Naming Policy for Royal Children in Scotland
Scotland Project has a number of royal children with profiles on WikiTree. There may still be a few that have not been added yet. As a result, the following guideline has been implemented by Project Leadership.
Last Name At Birth (LNAB)
Please Do Not use Scotland as the Last Name at Birth for a royal child, regardless of their legitimacy. Scotland is a surname in its own right.
- When a royal child is legitimate, they should be given their father's Last Name at Birth.
- When a royal child is born illegitimate but later legitimized, they should be given their father's Last Name at Birth as a Current Last Name or, in the case of a married daughter, as an Other Last Name.
- When a royal child is illegitimate and the mother's surname is known, the child should be given their mother's surname as their Last Name at Birth
- When a royal child is illegitimate and the mother's surname is 'unknown, the child should also have a Last Name at Birth of Unknown.
Information about how the Last Name at Birth was chosen or related information, should be placed in a section below the biography but above any Research Notes. For example: === Name Details ===
Illegitimate royal children did not receive royal titles at birth and would never be considered a Princess or Prince. Please Do Not add these titles to illegitimate royal children in Scotland.
