Heu... Lucas has nothing to do with Claus. That last name is a derivation from Nikolaus (Nicholas) while Lucas is one of the Evangelists.

Lucas is an anagram of Claus, or the other way around. ;-)
But I agree with you that I doubt that they were honouring prince Claus in that way. My mother had the same thought too though.

The late Prince Claus had only one grandson amidst a lot of granddaughters. Female variants of Nikolaus/Nicolaas/Nicholas are Clasine, Klazien, Klaas(je), Klaske, Nicoline, Nicolette, Nicole, Coleta, Kolette, Cola, etc. In my option not very regal names and the link with "Claus" is far-sought. So I am happy that his only grandson bears his proper name.

Picture: de hooggeboren heer (the highborn lord) Claus-Casimir Bernhard Marius Max graaf van Oranje-Nassau, jonkheer van Amsberg, the only male heir in the new countly dynasty Van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg, together with his grandmother Princess Beatrix and his aunt Princess Mabel:

I love Isabella Lily Juliana. It's such a pretty combination and all names sound quite dreamy together. Out of personal preference I find Isabella a bit boring (it's been so overdone in my country and there was a very unpleasant Isabella at my primary school, and thanks to her the name is kind of ruined for me), but in Isabella van Vollenhoven's combination, it sounds wonderful. I also like Catharina-Amalia Beatrix Carmen Victoria, what a beautiful name.

I also love the names of the Princesses of Bourbon-Parma: Luisa and Cecilia. I don't like their middle names but their first names are so pretty. I also like Alaïa-Maria and Julia Carolina Catharina from this family. I love how exotic and unusual Alaïa-Maria looks.

The Dutch Royals seem to be fans of hyphens. King Willem-Alexander, Princess Catharina-Amalia, Count Claus-Casimir and Alaïa-Maria all have hyphenated names.
"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone". Audrey Hepburn

"Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy". Anne Frank

Yes, the hyphen means that it forms one name together. In the interview before his Investiture the Prince said: "Willem-Alexander is and has always been my name, not Willem." (answer on the question why the Prince did not opt for Willem IV).
