I don't think it's a big issue the fact that Leonore is a princess, a duchess and is a HRH. King Carl Gustav maybe thinks that is better to have a line of succession with more people. We don't know if Victoria will have other child ou children or how many kids Carl Philip will have so maybe is necessary to secure the future of the Royal family. When Victoria was born the law needed to change to assecure the succession. So maybe Carl Gustav doesn't want to have any risk again.

I'm happy about it too. Now Sweden just needs to make sure Daniel is king consort someday.

With Estelle, many thought the name was too unusual and unexpected. Now Leonore is seen as the opposite.

Chris has spoken with Expressen's photographer in New York and told that there was many names they thought about. But he could just say that was a joint decision. Leonore is a name which they like very much of. Lilian is taken for granted and Maria comes from his mother.

I think Leonore is as unexpected as Estelle, but much more boring.

Again: Because Princess Leonore is needed in the line of succession!
IMO Swedish poster HBG91 explains it so well and with all due respect I think that we should relate to what the King of Sweden resolves rather that what we may find appropriate!

Had never guessed "Leonore" but quite like it and it's easy to pronounce in several languages, so that can't be bad with her life ahead
(reminds me of the poem "The Raven", which i really like, so maybe that helps my opinion )

You know, we have a Princess Eleonora on our Imperial Family, she's married to the Prince of Ligne and lives in Belgium. I think she was named after one of her maternal aunts, from the Bavarian Royal Family.
Eleonora sounds better than Leonore. I prefer names that ended with a, sound more feminine and strong. At least this baby is called Maria, what fills all these requirements :)

That's not what I'm saying! Princess Leonore has to be schooled in Sweden if she has to remain in the line of succession. That entails that her parents will follow suit, I suppose!
Now, if they for some reason decide not to move to Sweden, maybe because their 'spares' won't be needed when the times comes, then little Leonore will be educated in the United States or wherever the family choose to live. And in case Princess Leonore is not educated in Sweden, she cannot remain in the line of succession! It's as simple as that!

Would you prefer Duchess of Skåne, Halland and Blekinge ?

Hejsan!

Lovely name! I'm surprised she is 'treated' the same way as Estelle: a HRH and a Princess and a Duchess! However, this is lovely, IMO!
I just love the way the Swedish announce the name: very official, with a couple of pics. Hopefully we have some other babies in Sweden soon!

Not my favorite name choice, but I haven't liked many of the names attached to the royal children (from any country) in recent years. At least she's not a Savannah or an Isla...

Amen!

And she really is a beautiful baby! Now I guess we just have to be patient for a picture of Leonore with her cousin Estelle.

What do you mean that Gotland gets number 4? As far as I know, the duchy in use now are:

Carl Gustaf: Jämtland
Victoria and Daniel: Västergötland
Estelle: Östergötland
Carl Philip: Värmland
Madeleine: Hälsingland och Gästrikland
Leonore: Gotland

I don't understand why there's so much negativity towards the name. I like it a lot. I love that she only received three names as she wont be a major royal in the future (if only they avoided making her a Princess as well), I had definitely seen that coming. Leonore is nice - I like the subtle reference, intentional or not, to the last reigning Queen of Sweden, Ulrika Eleonora. I knew they wouldn't put Lilian in the first name spot, but I quite like it in the middle. Maria was quite expected, but I am slightly bummed that they didn't put Silvia in there as well.

As for the duchy, I certainly didn't see Gotland coming. It's nice. I think Uppland or Medelpad would have been nicer, but Gotland is decent as well.

Perhaps mattep74 means that Gotland has been created four times now. Though technically the two first holders were Lords of Gotland rather than Dukes.
