I'm a bit confused. Doesn't the name "Isabel" in fact mean "Elisabeth"? I have read many articles from hola or other Spanish newspapers and they always call QEII Reina Isabel II (like here). Why?

Isabel is the spanish translation for Elizabeth. So when they are talking about la Reina Isabel de Inglaterra, they mean Elisabeth. We do that a lot in spain. For example they also call prince William, Guillermo, same as Willem-Alexander of Holland, who is called Guillermo de Holanda. I honestly have no idea why, but it's always done

I think it´s because Spanish people are very careful with their language and tend to translate everything;as long as possible they also translate names: Charlotte Casiraghi is named Carlota.The same happens with words:as far as i know the Spanish don´t use foreign words like shopping, basketball,ticket, which are used everywhere,but correct me if i´m wrong.

they use 'el water' for the toilet, but I can't think of anything more. According to my Valencianian spanish teacher they got that word when they were stationed in The Netherlands in the 80-years war. But I can't think of any other word now either.

Thanks for your answers everyone! But I still wander: if we have Infanta Isabel, does it mean she is in fact (for us) Elisabeth or do they in Spain have Isabel as Isabel and Isabel as Elisabeth?

I personally prefer Sofia, but I think they are going to choose a different name. Felipe and Letizia like medieval names, like Leonor and Pelayo, so the name of their new baby girl could be Blanca, Mencía, Jimena...
I don't think they would name their daughter Isabel, like Felipe's first girlfriend (Isabel Sartorius)

I think the name Beatriz would be lovely. Leonor and Beatriz make a lovely pair.

She will probaly have only one name like her adorable sister. Though if I let my imagination run wild...

Leonor Sofia Antonia Maria de Mercedes
Beatriz Victoria Isabel Maria de Consolata

Alas for modern convenience!

Your question is a little confusing, but it goes like this: Elizabeth comes from a hebrew name (Elisheva). Each language has its derivative,which is supposed to be Isabel in Spanish. If you go to the page behindthename.com you can make it clearer. You will find several variants.

If the CP couple want to go historical, my guesses would be:
Luisa
Maria
But if they don't... Alejandra, Lucía, Alba would be nice.
Personally I love the name Lucía paired with Leonor...
Las Infantas Leonor y Lucía!

I like it too. "Our daughters Leonor and Lucia" sounds beautiful, I like the name Isabel but for Prince Felipe's daughter because she had a girlfriend named Isabel and I wouldn't like it for her. Just my personal opinion.

I prefer Isabel too. It's such a beautiful and regal name, but I doubt they will ever name their daughter Isabel because that's Felipe's ex. Can you imagine all the jokes and what not if they give her that name?
