Nice to see this family announced the name of the newborn the same day. Instead of some of these other families waiting days or even months, which in my humble opinion is one of the last ways of these families to distinguish themselves (or attempt to) from 'le peuple'. Good on the Spanish RF for not participating in that sort of nonsense, it's just a name for planet's sakes!

Infant Elena says that her niece Sofía looks “just a little bit” like Leonor.

La infanta Elena dice que su sobrina Sofía se parece 'un poquito' a Leonor

Infant Elena said this afternoon, after visiting her niece Sofía in the clinic, that she is “very nice” and that she is looked “just a little bit” like her elder sister, infant Leonor.

...More than one hour and half remained the Duchess of Lugo in the hospital, where was her brother the prince of Asturias, the mother and new born and her maternal grandmother,Paloma Rocasolano.

“She is very well, perfectly, my niece delight me”, said Doña Elena, whom indicated that infant Sofía eats perfectly...

It's so great Elena went to visit so soon. I sure hope she comes back to visit one of these days with Froilan and Victoria that would be nice. I;m wondering when Cristina will come visit, obviously today Miguel was the star of the house celebrating his birthday, but it would be nice if she could come soon. Has Letizia's family been seen anywhere near the hospital yet?
Can't get over the fact I just love the name

Should it not be Sofia de Grecia y Hannover (whaterver the spanish spelling is) Greece after her father and Hannover after her mother

If you are referring to the Danish RF then I regret to tell you
that it's quite common also for 'le peuple' in Denmark
to not give the name of their child until the christening.
Which makes your humble opinion a wrong opinion.
Other countries, other habits and traditions.

It's not the place neither the moment but the name of married woman of the Queen is Bourbon i Grecia, as the name of married woman of Letizia is Borbon i Ortiz. It's quiet logical!!!

Logical, but not in Spain. Spanish women after getting marry don't take their husbands' last names. The Princess is still called Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano. Only children have their fathers' last names, not wifes.

I think Letizia has 3 surnames: Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano de Borbon. It would be weird no taking the husband's surnames. I think the women in Spain take the surname after the husband

It may be weird for you but it is not weird (for me and) in Spain. The Queen still is De Grecia y Hannover, the Infantas are still De Borbon y Grecia and Princess Letizia is still Ortiz Rocasolano even after marriage.

If both of you don't believe me just look on the official site and click on the biographies of the Princess and the Infantas.
