Why do they name the first name but never call them by it. Shouldn't her first name be the one she is called? Didn't they also do this with Luana, isn't that her second name. Is this some kind of tradition?

It seems to be some sort of family tradition (It certainly isn't Dutch tradition). For example Willem-Alexander uses "Alexander" as his first name. Always has, evidently. Sometimes I notice members of the Forum referring to him as "Willem", where most Duchies are aware he prefers "Alexander". Same deal with "Johan Friso". His de facto first name is 'Friso'. Come to think of it, it seems this tradition started in 1967, with the birth of, yes, Alexander.

Well, one could certainly do worse
Fyi, in the Dutch translation, Tintin's named Kuifje, and his dog's name is 'Bobby', so perhaps Friso and company weren't aware of this..

Can we expect the same treatment of this newborn as Leonore? Such as the message board on the Dutch Royal Website and a photoshoot. Or because they are not officially part of the royal house we wont?

I'm sure there'll be a photoshoot with the Queen, because when Luana was born there was one, so I guess we'll get to see some pics in about two weeks or so.

Lovely name I think, and it matches with Luana .
Funny that almost all the grandchildren are born in June : Eloise 8 june , Alexia 26 june , Leonore 3 june and now Zaria 18 june:)
One wonders what annual event is there 9 months before in September....
