Congrats to Charlotte and Gad! Raphael Elmaleh has a really great sound to it and even sounds kind of Christmas-y.

I am not sure if this is possible in France, but in some countries it is possible for the parents to select the last name, even when their parents are married. Still, it is an exception when children of a (married) couple receive the last name of the mother.

Congratulations to the couple (& grand mothers). Raphael is a lovely name IMO.

lovely news, congrats to the couple. hopefully they will release some pictures!

i love the comment in the official announcement on that "the grandmas are doing fine": such a wink to gad´s profession! :)

i don´t really like the name raphael, although it sounds better in french than in any other languages i know.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!
So Raphael will have both nationalities, Monegasque and Moroccan, since Gad is a Moroccan who got also French citizenship on 2002 by naturalisation processus, and since French citizens can't get the Monegasque citizenship :-)

Dual nationality is strictly forbidden under Monégasque law.

Albert is, in fact, Raphael's great-uncle; his uncles are Andrea and Pierre Casiraghi and Arie Elmaleh; aunts are Princess Alexandra of Hannover and Judith Elmaleh.

Charlotte doesn't have Italian nationality beside the Monegaque one???
In Luxemburg also the dual nationality is forbidden, but there's a bilateral agreement with a country like Morocco, because Moroccan citizens and their families cannot be deprived of their Moroccan nationality in any case according to the constitution.

I know many Moroccans in Luxemburg who got both passports. I don't know if there's such as agreement between Monaco and Morocco. I also know many French and Belgian people who asked for Luxemburgisch citizenship, but they had to drop their French or Belgian nationality, it was the case of Stéphanie de Lanoy when she got married to Luxemburg's crown prince.

In Greece when a couple marry they have the right to choose if their kids will bear the surname of the father or the mother. But i can guarantee you that the percentage choosing mother's surname is near zero!

Charming. And they will marry some time in the future and perhaps give the baby a last name. On the other hand, don't blame the baby, I am sure he is adorable and should live a long and happy life.
