Even though I hope for a girl I can only think of a boys name!

I have previously read that the name Kimon is pronounced Kee-mon. I don't know how true this is, but that pronunciation seems to make sense. I apologize if this is incorrect.

It's a bit tricky to find names that work well in both Greek and English.
What about Maria Penelope for a girl (Penelope was the wife of Odysseus in the Odyssey by Homer). And it's been a while since there was a Georgios, right?

Ariadne-Claire is beautiful! They could also choose Maria-Ariadne, which would fit with the mother's name and the sister's name.

For a boy, I like Aristotle, although, that may draw inevitable comparisons to Aristotle Onassis, which they may or may not want.

I'm betting on Katherine (or Ekaterina) for a girl after recently deceased Katherine Brandham. (I don't think I have the last name quite right.)

Also, Pavlos has frequently referred to his grandmother, so maybe Frederika would be back in the mix.

Frederika Etakerina Anna-Maria

For a boy, the Greeks haven't had a George in a while, so maybe that after the dynasty's founder. Or Christopher. (Not sure of the Greek version of these names).

George Christopher Nicholas

As Pavlos is titular Duke of Sparta it might be nice to call a boy Leonidas, after the King who fought against the Persians and died during the battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC.
But after their previous choises I am sure they will surprise us this time too.

I never got their children's names.
Do they call them
Maria, Konstantin, Achilles and Odysseas ?
or is it Olympia, Alexios, Andreas and Kimon ?

Hope someone can answer me

Maria-Olympia 1996
Constantine Alexios 1998
Achileas-Andreas 2000
Odysseas-Kimon 2004 (at the moment only of their child who was born in London. Older were born in NY)

So I suppose there will be next child with double names...

I quite like Maria-Titania for a girl. But then she would have the same as Maria Olympia, unless they went by Olympia and Titania?

Thaddeus-Troy is cool for a boy

I'm sure it won't happen but I really like Georgios Blassis for a boy and
Anna Seraphina for a girl. I know their not ancient greek names but cute together. and would still with the other names of the older kids.

I have read in several publications that Maria-Olympia is called Olympia. It seems as though the boys are known by their first names only, although I have heard that Konstantinos is sometimes called Tino. I have read in previous threads on this board that Marie-Chantal calls the children the French version of their names. My French is not good enough to know what that would be. I hope this helps to answer your question.

would they ever use Pavlos for a son, or do they skip generations before they continue a name (ie-Konstantinos after his grandfather). I really like the name Pavlos.
