The name grows on me. I would have prefered Eleanor but I'm not sure if that's very Spanish (I really don't know).

Also, thanks for clearing up my confusion about the website thing. I've never heard of it before and I misunderstood. I thought the government was trying to stop ALL websites that would be created with her name. Silly me! :)

Leonor! Is there any royal with that name? I really don't like the name. No! But perhaps the little princess will have additionally some more names, nicer I hope. Sophia. Maria, etc... And even Eleonor or Eleanora would have been better. Much better! No offences, just my idea...

TVE showed a report about the name of the Infanta Leonor. They refered to Queen Leonor of Aragon, the mother of King Enrique of Castille, known as El Doliente, who inspired the book "El doncel de don Enrique el Doliente" by Mariano José de Larra (CP Letizia offered, as an engagement gift (the "literary jewel"), an original edition of this book). Enrique, el doliente was also the first Prince of Asturias.

They also refered to Leonor de Aquitania (Eleanor of Aquitaine), Queen of England and France.She was the mother of Queen Leonor of Castille (born Leonora of England), the wife of King Alfonso VIII. This Kings founded Cuenca Cathedral, which the Princes of Asturias visited during their honeymoon.

As you see, is an historical name in Spain :)

How do you pronounce the name in Spanish? Just as it is written? There are on this site a few examples how it is pronounced, but propably it is the English way to pronounce:

Leon-air-ah
Lay-on-or

I don't understand those. Don't you just pronounce the name L-e-o-n-o-r?

If they change the law to allow her to succeed to the throne even if she has younger brothers, that'll change the order of succession for Elena's two children too, won't it?

Infanta Elena oldest child is a boy, Froilan, so nothing happens. Same to Infanta Cristina, Irene is the younguest of her children.

yes, it would... but victoria is younger than froilan, so still, he would reign.

by the way the name leonor is pronounced:

Le: as in let
o: as in or
n: as in night
or: as in or

Ah, OK, thanks - I thought he was the younger one. That's handy, then - if there's a change in the law, it won't affect anybody already alive.

There are so many interesting articles and opinion pieces in the press today (I must stop reading them all), but one of the most curious observations I saw was one regarding rain and water. It mentioned that rain is a symbol of abundance and blessings and pointed out that on both the day of their wedding and the night of their daughter's birth (in the midst of a year of draught) Felipe and Letizia were infamously accompanied by heavy rains--and then added the observation that Leonor was born under one of the water signs. Curious, no?

That's a very interesting analysis of things lucys! I always find such analysis fascinating. In highschool English I thought it was overkill to see significance in a cake that was iced with white frosting as a symbol of innocence, but I think the explanation of the rain on Felipe and Letizia's wedding day and the rain on Lenor's birthnight (early morning) is an ironic happenstance.

In a way it makes me think that it appropriate as Felipe and Letizia are not the type who take their abudance and blessings for granted. They have not taken their positions as royals for granted, and have worked very hard to represent Spain. And I'm sure that they will pass on the same dedication and commitment to their daughter and not take her for granted either.
