Definitly, i belive, that if an Infanta is born, her name will be Sofia (some time ago i read an article that said that Felipe would love to give her daugther the name of his grandmother (the Contess of Barcelona): Maria de las Mercedes :flower:). About the name of the little Infante, i love this: Infante Juan Carlos Felipe Alfonso :flower:

If it's a boy, I prefer Alfonso, so he could later be King Alfonso XIV.
His full name then would be:

Alfonso Juan Carlos Felipe Jésus Pablo Maria

Alfonso named after his greatgrandfather King Alfonso XIII,
Juan Carlos named after his paternal grandfather King Juan Carlos,
Felipe after his father, prince Felipe,
Jésus after his maternal grandfather Jésus Ortiz,
Pablo after his greatgrandfather King Paul I of Greece (father of Queen Sofia),
and Maria cause this is a traditional name for Catholics.



If it's a girl, I prefer Sofía, named after her good grandmother Queen Sofía.
Her full name then would be:

Sofía Victoria Létizia Maria Frederica

For the child, I would imagine a combination of royal family and Letizia's family names. Also, I would consider who the godparents are--their names could be one of the bunch!! Felipe is the godfather to one of Elena's children, so Elena could be a godmother and amonst a princess's names. For a prince, he could have his cousin's name who read at the wedding. They could also reach back into history and pick names that haven't been used for awhile to freshen things up a bit. I think the top contenders for names are as follows:

A prince: Juan, Carlos, Alfonso, Jesus, Felipe, Pablo (for Queen Sofia's father and Crown Prince Pavlos who made Felipe a godfather to his son), Miguel

A princess: Sofia, Anna (for Queen Sofia's sister, Queen Anne Marie of Greece), Paloma, Pilar (for Felipe's aunt), Elena, Christina, Maria, Isabel (to remember Isabella of Castile), Catarina (for Katharine of Aragon), Mercedes, Victoria, Eugenia, and Letizia.

I don't know about this Pelayo name--I speak Spanish, and that is not a royal or even a common name to my knowledge!

Queen Sofia isn't sister of Queen Anne Marie of Greece, she's sister of King Constantine. Queen Anne Marie is sister of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark

Pelayo is an historical name in Spain, specialy in Asturias (it's quite comum you find a kid named Pelayo in Asturias). It's the name of the King that iniciated the re-conquest of Spain to the muslims (a link with the story: in spanish), that was iniciated in Asturias There's is also the name of a saint, San Pelayo.

Pablo Felipe Juan Carlos Jésus Maria Alfonso Miguel Constantino de Los Todos Santos

Pablo (a good name for a king and after his greatgrandfather Paul I of Greece),
Felipe (his father)
Juan Carlos (his paternal grandfather)
Jésus (his maternal grandfather)
Maria (for catholics)
Alfonso (named after the former spanish kings)
Miguel (a nice Spanish name)
Constantino (his great-uncle Constantine of Greece, could be a perfect godfather)
Los Todos Santos ("of all saints")


If it's a girl i still prefer Sofia, cause it's a beautiful name and an honor to her grandmother Queen Sofia. But i also like Isabel, wich honored the earlier Spanish Queen, Isabel of Castile and Isabel II, who ruled in the 19th century. She won't be a queen, cause the Spanish trone is only for males, but if she became Queen, then she will be Queen Isabel III.

--> Isabel Sofia Letizia Victoria Eugenia Christina Maria de Las Mercedes


But I don't know any names of Letizia's family, only her father Jésus. :(

Whoever suggested Maria de las Mercedes, after Felipe's grandmother I think is on to something. The wedding ceremony was filled with references to her: the jewels Letizia wore the night before the wedding (a gift at at the engagment ceremony) had belonged to Maria de las Mercedes. One of the flowers in the church and in her bouquet (I can't recall which) was also in her honor; and one of the elements embroidered in the veil (did you know that was a gift from Felipe?). The other queen most referenced in the flowers and the embroidery of the dress and the wedding mantilla was Isabel II--in honor of Madrid. Letizia's fan she used that day belonged to Isabel II.

If it's a boy Juan will be part of his name--Felipe adored his grandfather Juan, and adores his father--and certainly Pelayo--the ancient Asturian King who started the reconquest.

El título que menciona es propio de España. En nuestro Estado el Heredero o la Heredera de la Corona tiene "desde su nacimiento o desde que se produzca el hecho que origine el llamamiento la dignidad de Príncipe o Princesa de Asturias" (cfr. Real Decreto 1368/1987, art.2). Por otra parte, "los hijos del Rey que no tengan la condición de Príncipe o Princesa de Asturias y los hijos de este Príncipe o Princesa serán Infantes de España y recibirán el tratamiento de Alteza Real" (cfr. Real Decreto 1368/1987, art.3).

En la monarquía británica, la Heredera o el Heredero de la Corona reciben el título de Princesa o Príncipe de Gales. Las hijas y los hijos de la Reina o del Rey reciben la dignidad de Princesas y Príncipes.
