LMAO! Didn't know that, I thought it means the same thing with the Arabic Lela (also spelled Layla, Lila, Leila, etc.) which has quite a nice meaning, 'night beauty'.

I don't know if Lela is a spanish name (maybe it is) but according to the official dictionary lela is a synonym for stupid, silly, simple.... so I would forget about it.

I think they will choose one of these two possibilities:

- An unusual name that surprises everybody, like Leonor, maybe some with connections with the Castilian Kings, maybe Catalina or Ines...

- The name of one of the two grandmothers of the Infanta, Sofia or Paloma. Paloma is a very typical madrileño name, maybe they will choose this one.

Why would any Royal parent want to inflict "Princess Diana" on any child. I can just imagine the comparisons, condemnation etc. She would never be pretty enough, well behaved enough, etc etc etc!

I think they want to honour the King:

A girl: Su Alteza Real la Infanta Doña Carolina de todos los Santos de Borbón y Ortiz, Infanta de España

A boy: Su Alteza Real el Infante Don Carlos de todos los Santos de Borbón y Ortiz, Infante de España

Diana

I doubt it that the Spanish royal family would chose Diana as a name for a new Infanta, but you never know.

There have been so many Dianas and Dianes in royal and noble families. It is nonsense that this name has become 'infected' with the previous Princess of Wales.

It 'mouths' good in Spanish:

Su Alteza Real la Infanta Doña Diana de todos los Santos de Borbón y Ortiz, Infanta de España

elsa, luisa sounds like a nice regal name. i'd say if they chose luisa it would provoque the same sensation we had when we heard leonor's name for the first time: unusual but historic and regal.

i however doubt they will choose another name with L since letizia and leonor's names are L names. it would be boring and slightly tacky to call all their kids with L names.

I don´t think Luisa is unusual. I think Luisa/Louisa/Louise is quite usual in royal circles.

They would belong to different Royal Houses and diff. periods. If they choose Sofia or Carolina there would be comparisons with the Queen and the Princess of Monaco? I don´t think so.

There have been a number of Princess's of Wales but to the current world population there is only one person who ever had any right to the title and it should now never be used again.
