I'm very sure that there is no protocol about the names.

usually they get a "calling" name the surname
and they have names of the godparent(s) in their name

I have no idea, but there are some names we can skip from our lists, because they have been used for cousins.
These names include:
Isabella (Van Vollenhoven)
Anna (Van Lippe Biesterfeld van Vollenhoven)
Lucas (Van Lippe Biesterfeld van Vollenhoven)
Emma (Van Vollenhoven)

I don't think they would call a son George, because that is not a Dutch name and I think it would be controversial because Maxima's father's name is Jorge, the Spanish version of George. Another names they will not choose are Margarita (the controversial cousin of Willem-Alexander) and Alicia (Alexia already bears the name of a bastard child of prince Bernhard, and to give a third daughter the name of the other bastard is quite odd)
Nicolaas (Dutch version of Nicholas) would be nice, because Claus is a pet form of Nicolaas. However, Nicolaas sounds old-fashioned for a Dutch person like me. For a girl I would like Sophie/ Sophia, after Princess Sophie of the Netherlands, the favorite aunt of Queen Wilhelmina.

Wow- going through this thread last night, I found, after eliminating the repeats, that we have listed 99 male names, and 129 female ones. They run from Zara to Hedwig, Letizia to Sietske; and from Wouter to Aart, from Aaron to Marc Anthony, and from Brian to Tjaard.
The big repeats were Willem, Claus, Julius/Julian, Maximillian, Aurora, Aurelia, Anna/Anne, Juliana, and Maria/Marie/Mary.

I have some questions about Dutch female monarch's names and just naming Dutch babies in general. I was looking around for a thread for my questions and I couldn't really find one so hopefully my questions aren't totally inappropriate for this thread.

Anyways, after reading a past thread when Catharina was just born. It discussed that she will be the first Dutch queen to not carry the name Wilhelmina. I know Q. Beatrix has the name Wilhelmina as her second name. But I'm wondering about the history of the names of the Dutch female monarchs. Is there any signficance to Beatrix's name or Catharina's name? Or even Juliana's name? When naming a future female monarch are they more open to different names in the Netherlands?

Other questions I have: How much does history play a part in naming Dutch babies, female and male? Going along with that question I'm also wondering had W-A and Maxima had a boy first would it's name definitely had been Willem? Also how much does the origin of the name matter, do they tend to stick with popular Dutch names? Or what if with this baby Maxima wants a name that represents her culture more, how would that go over in the Netherlands?

From Lady K's list, I would pick Katlijn or Elizabeth for a girl, and I stick to Claus-Maximiliaan, as I did before in some other post. Maximiliaan Claus would also do, because there is also another prince with Claus as first name (Claus-Casimir)

I absolutely agree on that. After all, everyone calls Catharina-Amalia 'Amalia', which actually serves this purpose very well...

Actually I believe it's Count Claus-Casimir, he's not a prince. Or at least that's how he's listed. But I really don't understand why he wouldn't be a prince, but maybe someone more aware than I can explain that. I lilke Claus-Maximilian it sounds good and Maxima's name is kind of represented in there which is only fair after Alexia was sort of named after W-A.

This will be fun once the baby is born to see if it's name was suggested in this thread.

So far, Amalia and Alexia both had a name that had a was out of the royal family (Beatrix and Juliana) and a name from Máxima's side of family (Carmen and Marcela).
I think they will continue with this pattern.

Yes, and this time (if its a girl) they'll probably add Inés(from Máxima's side) and Wilhemina(from W-A's side)
