Okay, I understand the "Marie" in all their names, but why does Amadeo have a "Paola" and Joachim have an "Isabelle"? I could understand that they were named after people, but why do those names stay in the female form?

Queen Paola is Amedeo's godmother, I believe. Do not know who Joachim's is, but assuming her name is Isabelle.
Maria Laura has "Gerhard" amongst her names, and Laetitia Maria has Joachim and I am pretty sure Joachim is her god-father.
It seems Princess Astrid is quite keen on acknowledging her children's god parents within their names.

I don't understand why Astrid's boys have female names among theirs and visa versa? Maria/Marie I understand but Paola for Amedeo, Gerhard for Maria-Laura and Jaochim for Maria-Letitia? Aren't there female versions of Jaochim and Gerhard and a male version of Paola?

If I'm not mistaken these names are for the godparents of the children. Paola was godmother to Amadeo and Joachim is Maria-Letitia's godfather

Yes, that is right. In Belgian it is often that the second and thirth name are the names of your godparents. In my name it is also like that.

The name I like the most is that of little princess Eléonore Fabiola Victoria Anne Marie, but isn't there so I chose Louise Sophie Mary: it's short but just perfect.
I like Philippe and Mathilde choise for the first name of their children,with the el-/-el tradition, and also the Marie/Maria tradition, because of their catholic faith (being catholic too,I much appriciated).
I've noticed that Astrid and Lorenz chose for their children some Italian names (I have to confess, I'm a bit proud of this) as Maria Laura, Amedeo,Zita, Anna, Paola(obviously after the Queen) and Luisa.
Separately I like very much Gabriel, Emmanuel, Zita and Pilar.
