Im sorry Lauritas138, im not familiar with spanish customs & im not familliar at all with how second & last names go, not in spain & not in Europe. I just know that a name from the family is in the daughter/sons name


Quote:
first last name of Leonor is father´s and the second one is mother´s
Thanks for clarifying.abother point, id like to ask, does sibling middle & last names always have to be the same ? Because in Denmark if not mistaken it could be totally different.

As much as I love Spain and try to be in touch with Spanish news/traditions, I learnt about that particular custom (father's surname then mother's surname) only after Leo's birth.
I think that is the purpose of the discussion board - if you don't know something - you ask, and people who have more knowledge about it answerl.

e.g. Juan Martínez Escudero + Marta Villanueva Cortés => Juan Martínez Villanueva

Felipe de Borbón y Grecia + Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano=> Sofia de Borbón Ortiz y Grecia Rocasolano

This way when a woman marries a man, she never losses her maiden surname, and her family name is carried by her descendents (although just for one generation)

Why is Rocasolano in there? That's Leti's mother's name and it should not be in Sofia's name, unless I missed something.

The Spanish naming systems pass down only the father's and maternal grandfather's surname, not the mother's. The new child's full surname is Sofia de Borbón y Ortiz, but if she was not royal, she would usually be referred to simply as Sofia de Borbón. Her mother's maiden name was Letizia Ortiz y Rocasolano (First name father's surname and mother's maiden name) but she was known as Letizia Ortiz. The Spanish "y" means "and." Sometimes a feminist or someone who dislikes his father will use the mother's maiden name instead or put it in the first position, but normally the father's name is the one people are known by or that is passed down, just like in England and the United States.

Who send all those gifts?
In Spanish speaking countries, most of them at least, the father's last name, in this case, Borbon is used followed by the mother's last name. I'm not sure why they put "y." She would be Sofia de todos los Santos Borbon Ortiz. They put "y" to make it sound more interested and high class...not sure why. The gifts were probably sent by some friends...not sure.

I think the "y" was to link greek part of her. I don't think she would be Roscasolano though? Because this is her grandmother's maiden name, thus only Letizia is able to use it. Such a lovely name though: Infanta Sofia. By the way last evening TVE made a special on her birth and all the births of her cousins and sister.
