I think Anne as a name was quite illustrious too. All the names listed are names of Queens who inherited the throne. Queen Mary I (Bloody Mary), Queen Elizabeth I (the Virgin Queen), Queen Mary II (of Mary and William, though of course it was not so much an inheritance as a revolution and an invasion) and Queen Anne (Queen Mary II's sister).
Maybe Sir Walter was just steadily snobby.
