If it would be to end in -el (Gabriel, Emmanuel), I think Michel or Raphaël would be so much royal than Samuel or Abraham (!!!).
HRH Prince Michel Laurent Charles Georges Marie de Bélgique - so much appopriate.

For a girl - HRH Princess Anne Joséphine Astrid Marie Paola de Bélgique.

Another thing is that I think they also find it important that the name is written the same in Dutch and French, like with the names of their other three children.

Being that the CP pair seem to be rather devoted Catholics, I'm going to venture a guess that there will be some pretty strong saintly names involved.

How about

Francois Benoit Josef Jean

Marie-Mathilde Charlotte Pauline

I suppose the Flemish wouldn't be too happy with a Prince Francois

I believe if it is a baby girl her first name will be Astrid. :)
If it is a boy probably will be Baudoin

Usually the forth children are always the prettiest among their brothers/sisters so I think we'll have a super-hyper pretty baby royal.

I wouldn't vote for a French name like François. Philippe said ones they like names who can be pronounced in Flanders and Wallonia in the same way.
So it won't be Willem or Guillaume or Frans; François etc.

It won't be Baudouin aswel, cause they gave the name to Gabriel as second name.

I hope Pauline, the French form of Paola. I think it is a pretty and ladylike name!

Hmz, as a good reminder of the halfsister of the King, the infamous Marie-Christine . Still, WA and Maxima managed to give their second daughter the same name as an extramarital daughter of WA's grandfather, so who knows... . It is a pretty name anyway.

If it's a girl it would be really nice to name her Marie Alix or just have Alix as one of the names.
If it's a boy maybe they'll continue with the tradition of the biblical names, and maybe for a girl the'll put a biblical name.

I did some research and I found out that te three names of the other children of prince Filip and princess Mathilde all have the part "el" in there name wich means God in Hebrew.
ELisabeth: dedicated to God
GabriEL: Gods strength
EmmanuEL: God with us
I think that they will choose another name with the "el" part in.

for a girl:
Eleora: God is my light
Elianne: Jahwe is my God
Michelle: Who is as God
Danielle: God is my judge
Orielle: golden lion of God
for a boy:
Elia: the lord is my God
Daniel: God is my judge
Nathanael: gift from God
Samuel: heard from God
Michaël: who is as God
Raphael: cured by God

for a girl I like: princess Elianne Paola Laura Marie
for a boy I like: prince Elia Leopold (name of godfather) Marie
