In the greek royal family, i know one, Princess Elena that married with King King Carol II of Romania (she was aunt of Queen Sofia, i belive. Sister of the late King Pavlos). I don't know if there were more. In the spanish royal family, i don´t know if existed any Elena, i didn´t found any :)

I am so touched by the photos of Letizia's maternal grandparents and in particular the grandfather. He seems like such a nice, ordinary man and yet fate has catapulted him into these extraordinary circumstances. You can sense his being ill at ease with the media attention at times but his words are always very genuine; very down to earth - no pretenses. I find myself wishing I could just let him know he's doing a terrific job and to just keep being himself! He must pinch himself at times to be sure his current life is real!

What is the nickname for the name Leonor? Leo sounds like a boy's name to me.

Congratulations to the Spanish Royal couple on this happy occasion. Will Infanta Leonor be taken care by nannies since Princess Letizia is still recovering from the operation?

According to ABC, little Leonor has her father's eyes and her mother's mouth.

Why should there be nicknames for everyone?

Her Royal Highness the Infanta Leonor

Leonor's title is Infanta, she will be Princess only when her father is King and if she is definitively the heiress of the Wreath.
In Spain only it is a prince or Princess the inheritor of the Wreath, the rest of children of the King are Infantes and also they are Infantes the children of the Prince of Asturias.

IMO, i think that Elena went many times to the clinic to stay with Letizia because she had 2 cesarean and maybe she wants to be next to Letizia to share experiences.

From Argentina, this article discusses with something like amusement and astonishment that little Leonor, with not even a week of age, already has her entire future planned, and how people are already discussing if it would be prudent for her to be trained in all three branches of the military as was her father.

elena, in spanish, has the same root of "helena", "helenos", that corresponds to something relative to greece. in spain it's a normal name, not common, but not unusual. i don't know about greece, but i guess it's quite common due to its meaning.
