Baby name story: Princess

In 1961, Patricia Huckett of London decided to name her daughter Princess.

Officials tried to dissuade her, telling her that “Princess” was a title, not a name. But they could find no law against it, and she insisted, so the baby was named Princess Huckett.

Mrs. Huckett said she got the idea from her father.

“He said he knew a chap with the Christian name Lord. When they went on a plane to Switzerland, everybody was fussing around this chap.”

“At work they’ve all started calling me King Huckett,” noted Princess’s father.
