Enrique, nicknamed "el Doliente" , was Enrique III of Castile, and he was the first Prince of Asturias. His mother was Leonor of Aragon. So Leonor, was the mother of the first Prince of Asturias.

Certainly, the first Princess of Asturias, was Catalina de Lancaster... Catalina can be a name for the future infanta.

That sounds nice Lula, I'd like it very much for Leonor's sister to be named Catalina. La infanta Catalina. SOunds good to me

Like Juana, I don't think Lucrecia's a fitting name for an Infanta.
Juana of Castille was aka Juana La Loca.
The most famous Lucrecia of history was Lucrecia Borgia
aka Lucrecia la Puta. :< That is even worse than la Loca.

Well, i cannot write it here,I read it on the Hola forum, if you want to see it for yourself: Apostemos por el nombre de la Infanta, pag 5, but it was just one poster who said it, the others disagree or know nothing. Much better because i love the name.

Thanks Lord it isn't! Do you imagine Infanta Urraca?

I like Leona a bit (assuming that poor is Felipe really fond of names with LE). But I am not sure I like the rest, not for Infanta anyway.

Hi, Magnik! Sorry, but pratically none of those names has any tradition in Spain!...
I would say the only viable option for a "L" name with historical meaning is Luisa.

Laura or Lucía are Spanish names too, although with no tradition within the Royal Family.

I don´t think they will look for a name with L again, imagine if they have 3 or 4 girls what a problem. It was just a coincidence with Leonor and Letizia.I really would like an Infanta Carolina de Borbon. Sounds nice!! Smile!!!! (where are the smiles here?)

If it's going to be a name, not starting with L, I would love Catalina, Sofia or Pilar.
