Congratulations to Pavlos and Marie-Chantal!!!

As for names, do you think that they'll give him 'Robert' as one of his middle names (for Marie-Chantal's father)?

Anyone care to venture as to who the godparents of the new baby will be?
Here is a list of the other children's godparents, as I suppose that any of the people on the list will not be the godparents of the new baby:

Maria-Olympia:
Prince Charles of Wales
Princess Alexia of Greece
Pia Getty
Prince Michael of Greece

Konstantine-Alexios:
Prince Felipe of Spain
Prince Frederik of Denmark
Prince William of Wales
Princess Victoria of Sweden
Prince Nikolaos of Greece
Alexandra von Furstenberg
Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia
Doris Robbs

Achilieas-Andreas:
Infanta Elena of Spain
Princess Theodora of Greece
Prince Guillaume of Luxemborg
Prince Kardam of Bulgaria
Princess Rosario of Bulgaria
Prince Alexandre von Furstenberg


Okay here are my guesses. Definitely Prince Phillippos of Greece as he is the only one of the siblings who is not a godparent.
Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, Crown Prince Willem-Alexander of The Netherlands, Infanta Cristina

I picked Haakon and W-A, because the other three have at least one (or in Tino's case three) crown prince or princesses as a godparent. The only one left off is Philippe of Belgium, but I don't think that the Greeks are very close with them? Anybody know?
I also picked Cristina because she and Pavlos are cousins, and she is the only sibling from the Spanish family not listed. I also thought about Joachim of Denmark for the same reason.

Anyone else have a thought on this?

How come there is no name for this baby yet? Do the Greeks wait for a long time before announcing the names of their children? Joachim and Alexandra waited until their children's baptisms before announcing the names of their sons. Is this the case for this Greek baby? I thought names were announced fairly promplty for them.

Yes you're right, for their first 3 kids they said the name just after the birth .. they didn't wait 'till the christianing to announce the name like Joachim & Alexandra !
Come on Paul & Marie-Chantal !!! I can't wait to know

The little boys name is Odysseus. AM and KC were interviewed for their 40th anniversary party and they told this information.

Odysseus is also called Ulysses in Greek. I wonder if the family will call him by both names.


Also, I think it's wonderful that the baby was born on his mother's 36th birthday!

Well...I did guess that they might give the kid a name from Greek mythology.

Congratulations to the whole family on the safe arrival of the new little one. I'm sure Pavlos and MC are overjoyed with their son. Best wishes to all the Greek royals.

it's really old fashioned...:(

Has there been an official announcement concerning the baby's name? I don't know for some reason I like Ulysses better than Odysseus even though they're the same name.

Yes, I agree with your list. I am quite sure Cristina will be a godmother because, as you said, she is a cousin and the only one not listed.
