Iīve asked myself this already in connection with Catharina Amalia. Why is she called Amalia and not Catharina? Maybe the young generation of dutch Royals wants to establish a new tradition.
I can only say, that Iīm glad, that Luana can always choose "Emma" as older girl, when she isnīt happy with her fancy name.

I've been wondering about the scenario as well. However the analogy with Catharina-Amalia is completely different.

In the Amalia's case Catharina-Amalia is one name connected with a hyphen, and while she is often called Amalia her official name is Princess Catharina-Amalia.

Mabel and Friso's name choices don't make much sense to me as the names are different names Emma Luana Ninette Sophie.

Her first name is Emma, but her official name is Countess Luana van Oranje-Nassau.

You're right -- it doesn't make sense that that her official name is Countess Luana van Oranje-Nassau rather than Countess Emma van Oranje-Nassau. It would be one thing if her official name were Countess Emma but her parents and family referred to her as Luana but to make her official name Luana, too -- wouldn't it just make more sense to make her name Luana Emma Ninette Sophie van Oranje-Nassau?

One can't even say that Luana is a "nickname" or a variation of the baby's first name is in Prince Maurits and Princess Marilene's daughter whose full name is Anastasia but is referred to as Anna. Or as the example was given of Catharina-Amalia or Henry/Harry.

Very confusing the entire issue of Johan Friso and Mabel's daughter's name!

But very happy news for the couple and for Beatrix!

Just a quick answer. I think it's because that, though Johan Friso is no longer a part of the Royal House (a.k.a people who can succeed), he is still a part of the royal family because he is the son of a reigning monarch. Actually, Friso hasn't been in much, if any, royal functions as a representative of the royal family.

Anyway, congrats to the new parents! I find the name Luana quite unique, sounds very polynesian/hawaiian. She won't be the first royal baby that has a non-royal sounding name. Very nice choice in my opinion.

Congratulations to the mother and father. Itīs always good to hear that the mother and daughter are doing well. Iīm sure Johan Friso is still beaming from ear to ear as he rightfully deserves to be.

Luana sounds lovely...however I picture a typical southern hillbilly (forgive me), reminds me of a Mary-Lou-type girl. Would've preferred Emma.

Itīs not new in the younger generation to use the second name.

Willem-Alexander - called Alexander
Johan-Friso- called Friso

I think every parents have the right to choose the name for their babies themselves.Okay,as the future Queen Catharina-Amalia needed a more traditional and elegant name,but in fact Luana is the decision of Mabel and Friso and obviously they liked these names and should accept....

Here is an article. I find it strange that the only the Australian media has said anything about the birth of Luana. They couldn't even spell Johan's name correctly.

Princess has baby girl
From correspondents in The Hague
28mar05

PRINCESS Mabel, the wife of Dutch Prince Johan Frisco, has given birth to a baby girl.

The child, named Luana, is the fourth granddaughter of Queen Beatrix.

Prince Johan Frisco, Beatrix's second son, married Mabel Wisse Smit on April 24 last year, a union that caused him to renounce his right to the Dutch throne.

The wedding was embroiled in controversy with revelations that the prince's fiancee had a past relationship with a major drug trafficker, Klaas Bruinsma.

Finding that the couple provided "incomplete and erroneous" information about the bride-to-be's past, Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende refused to ask parliament to sanction the marriage.

Johan Frisco was third in line for the Dutch throne after his brother Willem Alexander and Willem's daughter Amalia.

I think it was discussed at the time of the wedding that without having asked for permission, Johan Friso and Mabel are no longer part of the Dutch royal house even though they are part of the Queen's family. And as I understand it, the website of the Dutch royal house is only for members of the royal house, which would exclude Johan Friso and Mabel and the birth of Luana.

Congratulations to Johan Friso and Mabel. They've been through a lot as a couple. Hopefully their lives will be a lot more peaceful (and more accepted by the Dutch) from now on.

Maybe they liked the name Luana more than Emma but they wanted her to have a more regal first name?
