I hope they name the baby Covadonga if it is a girl. When someone first mentioned I didn't like but the more I though about (and researched it) I think that it is a wonderful name. Its got a deep sense of history and meaning.its truly a lovely name that will have to go on my list of favourite names.

Or if it's a boy:

What are some traditional names for the Royal Spanish Family?

For a girl, I would like Mercedes. Either that or Graciela. For a boy, Javier, Carlos or Alejandro/Alexander.

Just as it´s written,in spanish every vowel has only one sound: a(cut),e(let),i(meet),o(lost),u(loose).Those are some examples for an english-speaker.

I like Eduardo or Carlos. Something nice for if the law isn't changed. Enrique isn't bad is and is definitely more modern for a modern king. I like Carolina, Cristina or Victoria for a girl. To me, Mercedez is more a middle name.

I like either of those. I hope that they do share the sex although I understand that a birth is a private matter first.

I think it would be interesting if it was a boy and they named it Fernando since that was one of the names that Juan put to Franco to get his permission to name his son ( Felipe was the other one of course). They had already settled on Felipe and come to be Franco like that one too. So that name would cool to use knowing to history of it.

I think they should avoid using any first names already in the current family including their own names. It could cause too much confusion.
And Juan, Isabel and Maria are such common, over-used names.
I like the names Enrique or Alfonso for a boy.
And Lucia is a very pretty name for a girl.

btw, I always wondered this and now seems like a good chance to ask: is Letizia a common name in Spain, or is it unusual? I had never heard of it, and I'm not that familiar with Spanish names, so I was just curious.

If they choose for traditional names, the girl might be Sofia, Isabel, Victoria, Maria, Mercedes, Cristina... If he is a boy... Felipe, Alfonso, Juan,Carlos, Fernando... They are the names that more repeat themselves in the Royal Family, but sometimes it also brings links historical, a bit complicated.

If they follow Leonor's example, we would have to look for a bit less common names in the Spanish Monarchy ... we might investigate a bit when see which appear.

For example, Catalina, wife of Enrique III, and the first Princess of Asturias.
I think everyone will truely be surprised by the name they pick. Leonor was so unexpected that I have no Idea what they will name the second child. For a girl I really like CATALINA. I have no idea for a boy, but I hope they don't use the same names as their nephews, IMO, think they have been used enough.
