One day she will become Crown Princess Elisabeth Of Belgium and later on
Queen Elisabeth Of Belgium
is the name Elisabeth used in the royal family before, and does she have any middle names?

She was named after Queen Elisabeth of the Belgians, wife of Albert I (Philippe's greatgrandmother). One of Mathilde's sisters is also called Elisabeth.

Her full name is Elisabeth Thérèse Marie Hélène. (Hélène is the name of her godmother).

I think her name is interesting because Elisabeth, Marie and Helene are all Mathilde's sisters' names. Well, Marie-Alix is the sister that was killed. I don't know if Elisabeth's names were all picked out for this purpose or not.

Elisabeth strongly resembles Queen Paola.

I believe remembering philippe saying that they named her elisabeth cause queen elisabeth (albert 1's wife) was such a strong lady.



I think she look like Paola too :P

A short 'e' sound at the beginning and a long 'e' sound at the end (sort of like 'lean' at the end.) I believe this is the French pronunciation of the name. The other variation of pronouncing it that you wrote is the English version. 'Helen' short 'e' sounds for both.

Thanks for your clarification, Karolina and Alexandria! Do you ladies think it's a nice name for a little girl? When you hear the name "Helene" do you think of an attractive cheerful little girl or not? Do you think it's overused? Does it sound better as a first name or as a middle name? I'd like to hear everyone's opinion please.

Hélène is her 4th name I think, nobody calls her Hélène

the official name of the future queen is Elisabeth,
but her parents like to say Lisa of Elisa or how lovely mathilde calls her 'mon ange', my angel.

I think Helene is a very nice name. To me, it connotes femininity and a certain delicateness and softness.

But that could just be me! According to my friends I tend to favour the feminine, 'frou-frouy' names!

No, here in Belgium, we pronounce it Heeleinuh. Like that, Hell-een is more English, Hel-len too. So it's Hee-lei-nuh.
By the way, it's a lovely name, and it sounds very chic

Actually, it wouldn&#39;t be Hel-lean. With the accent at the end, it makes it a short "e" sound at the end. It&#39;d be more Hell-en. French has always befuddled me- i.e. what&#39;s the point of having an "s" at the end of say, "Tu prends" if you&#39;re not going to pronounce the s? Or the d for that matter?
