Where is Henri? He's always the source for the history in this wonderful family. I'm curious about the significance of this name in the family.

It appears people are curious about the spelling with an E as well, but the people in the crowd all seem to like the name.

I just checked the RF's web site and it's already up over there and it's spelled Ariane. And they wouldn't misspell it.

I don’t like the Dutch pronunciation of Ariane, it sounds almost like Adriaan and that’s a name for boys. I would prefer the French pronunciation. Well, as long as the parents like it.
I don't think the name Ariane has any royal historical significance.

Ariane - name they like
Wilhelmina - great grandmother of Willem-Alexander
Maxima - great grandmother of Maxima
Inez - after Maxima's youngest sister Ines, who is most likely also one of the godmothers

Since everybody is stressing the Ariane instead of Ariana and comparing it with Amelia and Alexia I would assume it is indeed Ariane

Queen Wilhelmina was her great-great grandmother. The great-grandmother was Queen Juliana. I think Ariana it nicer than Ariane but let wait what version is right.

Ariane Wilhelmina Máxima Ines

WA said the name Máxima wasn't after Princess Máxima, but after her great-grandmother. Like Wilhelmina for WA's great-grandmother.

Ariane: The parents liked the name.
Wilhelmina & Máxima: after the great-grandmother of Máxima and the great-grandmother of Willem-Alexander.
Inez: Younger sister of Princess Máxima
