In the following post Princess Isabella writes she is full 8 months pregnant, and post was made on 6 December, so she is reportedly due on 6 January; she herself confirms January in one of the answers:

The boy looks hilariously cute, like an old man in a renaissance painting. What a dumpling.

Congratulations! I love his name - Antoine Tau Eduard Adrien. Adrien was a bit of a surprise, though I love Antoine and how his name honours the de Ligne family. He's a beautiful baby.

Well, it's quite hard to read hashtags all together so I missed the Tau part. Easy mistake to make
Tau is interesting though, I wonder what the significance of the name is or the meaning behind it.

The paternal grandfather of the baby is called Charles-Antoine. While the previous head of the de Ligne's was Prince Antoine (13th P. de Ligne). The 5th prince was also an Antoine.

Anothr Antoine -still only baron de Ligne- was head of the family in the 16th century. He had the nickname 'Great Devil" for his fierceness on the battlefield. As Emperor Charles V refused to award him the Golden Fleece, he started his own parody order: the order of the Wolf.

The other names do not run in the family as much. Neither do they appear frequently in the la Tremouïlle or Croÿ-Roeulx families (though the father of the newborn has a cousin who is called Hadrien).

Apparently Tau is a name used in Southern Africa, which means "lion". Several rulers of Rolong (territory in present-day Botswana) were named Tau.

Thank you for the information Marengo. I don't know of any South African connections to the de Ligne family or Orsini family, I wonder why the name was chosen.

Apparently they are still at the hospital. Is that normal practice in Belgium (or do they live elsewhere)?

Maybe Isabella had scheduled a C-section due to her age?
