Dutch Baby princess named Alexia Tuesday, 28 June 2005








Crown Prince Willem-Alexander registered the name of his second daughter as Alexia Juliana Marcella Laurentien in The Hague on Tuesday.

Argentine-born Princess Maxima gave birth to the child on Sunday.

As with the entry of the names of future Queen, Amalia, into the register 18 months ago, Prime Minister Jan Pete Balkenende and the vice-president of the Council of State Tjeenk Willink attended Tuesday's ceremony in the Oude Stadhuis.

Hague Mayor Wim Deetman and Henk Kokken jointly received Willem-Alexander's declaration of his second daughter's names.

Alexia Juliana is third in line to the Dutch throne after her sister Amalia and her father. She was born at 2.40pm on Sunday, weighing 3,490 grammes and was 50 centimetres in length.

Is Princess Maxima close to her sister / half sisters? I ask this because she never named any of her children after them.

I love the name Alexia, I personally think it's a lot more refreshing than Alexandra. (In terms of modernity)
I also love the fact that they chose the names Laurentien and Juliana and as much as I love the fact that they chose the name Marcela in honor of Maxima's aunt, I'm not too sure it sounds nice when put together with her other names.

I love the name Alexia. I'm glad they didn't call her Alexandra, there are already so many royal/noble women with that name.

Catharina-Amalia is known as Amalia, prince Friso's daughter, Emma Luana is known as Luana.

As Juliana is her second name, that means that she'll be known as Princess Juliana?
No, she's known as Alexia.

From an article:
---------------------------
Prince Willem-Alexander and Maxima met for the first time in Spain in Sevilla in 1999. “It was not love at first sight," Maxima confessed. But when Willem-Alexander asked her for the next dance ....

Maxima returned to New York, where she works and Willem-Alexander takes up his daily business. However, they phoned each other and sent e-mails. Three weeks later Willem-Alexander is invited to a wedding in New York.....

The first few months, the Dutch press was unaware of this big, front-page news. Willem-Alexander occasionally visited her in New York, but Maxima regularly came over for the weekend.

That summer Willem-Alexander spent his holidays, as usual, in Italy WITH Maxima. Soon the press knew all about it. The first photos were published. With telelenses, the picture was a bit blurred and it was difficult to distinguish who was who.

Terrible names!

I don't think that Willem- Alexander has shown much respect to his late grandmother by chosing the name Alexia. Also I don't like the name Laurentien, but that is maybe because I don't like her.

Awwww. I think we're all being a bit harsh! I think Alexia is a very pretty name, and I don't really care if it sounds "regal" or not because she will never reign! WA and Maxima are just like any other normal parents and they chose a name they wanted.

The aunt Marcela is a strong, independent woman who is said to have had a strong influence on the life of Maxima who herself is a strong, independent woman. Not to forget Juliana who was also a strong, independent woman and Laurentien, a strong, independent woman who has a unique fashion sense as well.:) Anyway, the aunt, I read, studied agriculture and is involved in that line of work. Also it is quite an honor for Maxima to name the baby after her husband. Willem Alexander must be so proud of his wife.

I think it's a great name. And Alexia looks great when you put it together with Amalia (the first letter and the two final letters are the same...) giving a more complete feel to the naming of the children than if she had been called Alexandra. Even if it is a lovely name, there are so many called Alexandra these days...

I too am a little disappointed with the name...although the thinking behind it is nice...for me a nice Dutch name would have been better...or as initially proposed Sophie-Emma.

Wow, this is a bit harsh.
Of course it's your opinion and I respect it, but what has Laurentien done to you that made you dislike her?
And I really don't think Juliana would mind her grandson calling his daughter Alexia. From what I read Juliana loved Alexia and Alicia.
Besides, I don't think Willem-Alexander would name his daughter Alexia if he thought there could be a chance Juliana would be offended.
W-A and Maxima named their daughter Alexia in honour of her father and because they liked the name.
And I like it too, it's spicy
