Names for the new Babies

Since there will be at least 2 births in the Dutch Royal family this year (and hopefully many more to come from other families as well) does anyone care to speculate on names?

I think that in the Dutch Royal Fmaily they will have Wilhelmina in the name somewhere if it is a girl, and perhaps Wilhelm or some other historically important name from the beginning of the Dutch royal family. I will continue to research names and such and hopefully come up with some more ideas!

I do hope however, that Mabel and Friso find a better name than Ninette! It sounds a bit like Ninny! However with mabels penchant for bows, who knows what she will come up with next!

All ideas welcome!

Maybe we can also speculate on whether they're going to have boys or girls? I think both of them will have boys. Maybe we can add a poll with these options?

-both of them will have a boy
-both of them will have a girl
-Mabel will have a girl, Laurentien will have a boy
-Laurentien will have a girl, Mabel will have a boy

I guess the names will be quite a surprise, as normal with the DRF. It could as well be that Wilhelmina or Willem will be one of the christening names, but I don't think they will be the first names of the children. I'm still hoping for a Juliana, Julie or something like that (if there are going to be any girls) or a Sophie. I think these names wil have to come from Laurentien & Constantijn, because Mabel & Friso will probably choose something weird. I would have loved the name Ninette for Luana, I think it's way better (though it might be a bit old fashioned).

Perhaps we could discuss names and the sexes of the babies in the respective threads announcing their arrivals.

Here for Mabel:

And here for Laurentien:

This way, it will be less confusing.
