William, william, henry stephen, henry, richard, John. OI!
Henry, Richard, John, oi!
Henry, Ed, Ed, Ed, Rich two

Edward, Edward, Rich the third

Jimmy, Charles and Charles and then
Jim, Will, Mary, Anna Gloria
George, George, George, George
Edward, George, Edward, George six

God Save The King

The name didn't change until the reign of George V.
Edward VII was House Saxe-Coburg and Gotha
