Maybe Marie Madeleine Henriette Laura

Hello!
I guess they will use
1. a name from the Bibel
2. a name of a former King or Queen (as Elisabeth, Baudoin, Leopold were former Queen und Kings)
3. a name of the godparents
3. Marie as all three children are called Marie.

Girl:
1. Name from the Bibel could be Marie/a, Anna (Anne) or Madeleine, as well as Judith, Rebecca, Lea, Ruth, Rahel.... Somehow i'm guessing Anne or Madeleine.
2. name of former Queen: Paola, Fabiola, Astrid, Elisabeth, Marie Henriette, Louise-Marie. Probably it will not be Louise, as there is already the daughter of Laurent. Elisabeth is the name of the new-born's sister. And i don't think they will take the name of the grandmothers or Fabiola, as they didn't used it before. So it might be Henriette or Astrid.
3. name of the godmother. Maria Laura could be the godmother, as there are not a lot young female relatives left, who haven't been godparents.
4. Marie

in the end i think they are going to have a
Marie Madeleine Henriette Laura
or
Anne-Marie Laura Astrid

Boy:
1. name from bibel an ending with el: Raphael, Daniel, Samuel. I like Raphael best.
2. Name of former king: just one is left, as they already used Leopold und Baudoin: Albert
3. Godfather's name: I think Joachim will be the godfather.
4. Marie

So i guess the baby-boy's name will be Raphael Albert Joachim Marie

Someone brought up the "EL" point for a girl...what about MadELeine Astrid Laura Marie? And maybe Princess Madeleine might be one of the godmothers to the newborn?

I had to smile when I was reading some of the suggestions like Leopold or Gertrude or Joseph or Ghislaine. I don't want to offend anyone but I think it is very unlikely the couple will give their child one of these names. They are very old-fashioned names, at least right now in Belgium. I agree that the couple seems to like traditional and classic names but that doesn't mean they have to give the child an old-fashioned name.

It is also the name of Queen Paola's elder sister and a rather common name so why not?
It wouldn't be my choise for a name these days, althoug Princess "Tineke"..
It is also the name of our dutch Princes Christina, who is a Catholic now I believe, so she could be godmother too...

By the way, if they choose this name and they get a boy again they could name him Christrian Maria.

I am really looking forward to seeing which names they choose as the selection is quite small if we look at Biblical names similar in style to the other children.

I haven't guessed right yet on any of the other royal babies but these names are ones I quite like, some are obviously not Biblical but it is difficult to think up names that are Biblical, royal and still fit in the similar style (not to mention being appropriate in both Belgian languages):

Boy: Michael, Thomas, Felix, Alexander,
Girl: Sarah, Hannah, Charlotte, Victoria, Alexandra, Helena, Eleanor (too close to Leonor but has the "el"),

OK, you are right about that I think. On the other hand I had never thought that our Prince Willem Alexander and Princes Maxima would give their first child the, in my opinion, old fashion name Catharina Amalia. But in a few years time I am more and more used to it and Amelia sounds less old fashion to me.
Wel let us wait and see when the baby is born. Untill then it is a nice game guessing.

I had chosen Christine as one of the middle names as I thought it was a nice name and also because it is one of Paola's relatives and one of Mathilde's middle names. I had no idea it was one of Prince Albert's half sisters!

another name I really like is Céleste wich means heavenly.

Maybe when it's a girl it could be: SAR princess Céleste Astrid Laura Marie

I think it goes well with the other names of the children: Elisabeth, Gabriël, Emmanuel and Céleste.

I also love the name Eleonore, but you have already infanta Leonor and Leonore the daugther of prince Constantijn en princess Laurentien so probably they will not give there daugther this name.

I don't think they will give a daughter the name Elizabeta-Anna.
Elisabeth and Elizabeta-Ane is a little confusing.

Oh and instead of Sarah for a girl, I'd vote for Noelle.
So it's Nathaniel for a boy, Noelle for a girl.

French for Nathaniel would be Nathanaël.
Whatever name they choose, I guess it will be a biligual one (french/flemish), a name you don't need to translate either in fmemish either in French, like Elisabeth, Gabriel and Emmanuel.
