The name is very pretty and very appropriate. It's right that the child be named after her grandmother. Why are people referring to the older girl as Leo? I wasn't aware that her family had given her a nickname. Seems inappropriate for a girl, in any event.

I think I had to get used to the fact that it wasn't Lucia or Eugenia as a name, but I love it now ..

Felipe, Letizia, Leonor y Sofia .

Cute .

aw, it's a shame the infanta isn't called isabel or another regal and unexpected spanish name (such as leonor, which was a beautiful surprise), but i understand if the prince wanted her baby girl to be called like his mother the queen. i wonder if they may choose more names for the christening? although leonor only has one name (plus "de todos los santos"), felipe, cristina and elena all have beautiful long names. i hope they choose a couple more for the christening, although i doubt so.

now, let's wait for the official photoshoot!

They usually show pictures leaving the hospital and official ones on the same day. With Leonor we saw them leaving the hospital and official pictures of the Princes of Asturias, Leonor and the King and Queen later in the afternoon

Why does she only have one name? I know her sister does too, but both of her aunts have three or four names each.

Awww, probably little Sofia is another mini Felipe like her sister. I remember that I was totally charmed by the first photos of Leonor and I hope it will be the same with Sofia.

Spain's Queen Sofia smiles to the press 29 April 2007 as she leaves the Ruber clinic in Madrid where Spain's Princess Letizia, wife to heir to the throne Prince Felipe de Bourbon, gave birth to the couple's second child, a baby girl named Sofia, the royal palace announced.
