I guess Francisca is fine, but for me Francisca is a name for little farmers girls... not to offend any farmers.
Well, and I have two cousins named Francisca and Catharina... and their grandma is Emma... strange, hmm?

To be honest: I love the name Franciska (or Franziska). It sounds so cute! I think the dutch pronounce it similar as we do.

Will Pieter-Christiaan present his little daughter to the press, as the other dutch princes did?

congratulations to the happy family!

i knew it was going to be a girl to follow the dutch tradition :) they chose really nice names as well... isn't luana also called emma as her second or third name? they also used amalia's first name :) (perhaps a nice gesture of friendship to mabel and maxima?)

i can't wait to see pieter christiaan, anita and princess emma!

did they get any visits to the hospital?
