congrats to the family! I'm just wondering though how Anne is pronounced in Belgium. Is it the pronounced like the American/British way, or is it pronounced 'an-neh', two syllables?

Congratulations to CP Philippe and CP Mathilde.
I like the name. There are 3 namesakes : Leonor (Spain), Leonore (Netherlands) and Eléonore (Belgium).

Thanks again Paty, for these wonderful pictures, you're the best The kids sure look a whole lot happier than they did upon arrival, I guess they're quite happy with their little sister. The kids are just adorable. Emmanuel is too cute for words, with hs adorable little smile Elisabeth and Gabriel look a bit more shy, which is normal of course for kids their age having a better understanding of the press and all the people. I can't wait to see little Eleonora

The French way is without the -e ending, whereas I heard it being two syllables in the Dutch video provided. So, basically - both.

Congrats to all the family. I was hoping for a boy but a healty baby is always a wonderful thing. But I didn't like the name Eléonore. I'm just don't stand so many similar names, Leonor, Leonore, Eléonore... The name could be different. Anyway... But Elisabeth, Gabriel and Emmanuel are just adorable. What a bunch of cuties!

There is also Eleonore of Habsburg --- eldest daughter of Francesca of Habsburg.
I think that Victoria of Sweden was chosen as a sort of honorary Godmother.
As she is not Catholic, there needed to be a Catholic Godmother and Claire was chosen.

Also, Karl Habsburg and his wife Francesca have a daughter named:
Eleonore Jelena Maria del Pilar Iona who was born in 1994. (Karl would be the heir to the Austrian-Hungarian throne.)
