Since the youngest two are not yet fullgrown, we decided not to put this info in the FAQ posts. Have you checked this thread? I believe Joachim & Maria Laura are about as tall as Amedeo (give or take a few inches).

This is a silly question, but how tall is Amedeo? Maria Laura has always appeared to be quite tall in photos.

6 ft. 5 inches seems kind of tall for him. I think he is more between 6 ft 1 inches and 6 ft 3 inches.

This is a name often used in Habsburg Family.

Marcus d'Aviano is a saint and a monk who had an important role at the court of emperor Leopold I and is quite famous in Austria. I think that the blessed emperor Charles I had a strong devotion towards him and gave that name to his sons, an habit followed by many of his descendant

I am wondering why the princes have partly also feminine names and the princesses also male christian names. Why this? What is the origin of this tradition?

I guess that's because they have also the names of their godfathers, of both sexes

Oh, if it is so, then I must say: what a lovely idea, quite extraordinary, to get also the christian names of the godfathers and godmothers. Thank you for this information.

A lot of female descendants of Emperor Karl and Empress Zita have a male name, Markus/Marcus d'Aviano; moreover, and this happens in a lot of Families, both men and women have the name Maria/Marie, a female name used for both men and women; I remind Neipperg Family (the family of Archduchess Andrea of Austria), where all the members have MAria as first name (the husband of Archduchess Andrea is Maria Karl Eugen, and their children are Maria Philipp, Maria Benedikt, Maria Domonik, Maria Hemma and Maria Katharina).
So in Habsburg Family it is not unusual to use male names for women and female names for men.
