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.

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.

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).
