A woman has revealed she too was named after The Queen, like Harry and Meghan’s daughter Lilibet, but claims the moniker gave her “bad nicknames” and she is forever correcting people who say it wrong.
American director, producer and writer Lilibet Foster has carried the unique name for more than 50 years – and now she’s revealed some of the issues with the royal moniker.
Speaking to news.com.au, Ms Foster expressed her thoughts on the incredibly unique name, and how it’s almost impossible for people to pronounce it properly.
“Choosing a name for your child is a big commitment,” she said.
“There are those parents who want a completely unique name that few others will have, and those who don’t want a name too unusual for fear that their child will be teased.
“I’ve never met another Lilibet and have always enjoyed explaining that I’m named after Queen Elizabeth II and her nickname.
“Sure, hardly anyone pronounces my name correctly, I’ve spent a lot of time spelling it, and I’ve been called several bad and embarrassing nicknames.”
