I love the name Annika, as some have mentioned.

I also like Anna, but isn't that what Mauritis' oldest daughter is called? I know her full name is Anastasia, but I thought she was called Anna.

i'd like her to be called Aurora or Antonia

Aurora Beatrix Marie Louise
Antonia Beatrix Marie Louise

i think both names are very pretty and suited for a beautiful little princess. but i'm sure that whatever name they do choose it'd be just as perfect as the previous two

I think they'll choose another six-letter A name: Andrea, Adalia, Adela, Adrina, Agatha, Aileen, Aislin, Alicia, Aimee, Alaina, Alanna, Alayna, Alaura, Albina, Aldona, Alegra, Alessa, Aliana, Alison, Allene, Allete, Almira, Alodia, Alodie, Alucia, Amable, Amanda, Amelia, Angela, Annika, Anthea, Ariana, Arissa, Arlene, Armina, I know most of these aren't Dutch, and don't appear in the Dutch Royal Family, historically, but there they are.


Two others I like, but who aren't six letters: Adela, which is Spanish, and Aleydis, which is Dutch

Aleydis means "of the Noble sort"

I do not think that they will use either Beatrix or Juliana as those names are already used in their other two daughters, as well as being used extensively in the family.

Emma and Sophie are also used with the children of Friso, and Sophie is also used with one of the children of Constantijn and Laurentien. Also, Emma is used in the new Van Vollenhoven baby, that of Anita. Irene is also used in the name of Leonore, the second daughter of Constantijn and Laurentien, and Beatrix is used in the first daughter, so with so many close relations with those names, I think that they might be out of the running.

Aleydis means "of the Noble sort"
Allene is a possibility, to Allene Countess Kotzebue, an aunt to the late Prince Bernhard and godmother to the Queen.

Arminia is a possibility, to Armin Prince zur Lippe, the head of the dynasty of Lippe to which also the Queen belongs.

Amalia is already used.

The other names are more un-dutch.

Anna is a frequent name (Anna of Egmond, Anna of Saxony, Anna of Hannover, Anna Paulovna of Russia, etc.)

Other A-names are Armgard (grandmother of Queen Beatrix), Albertine-Agnes (direct ancestor).

Names with -ia are also traditional: Sophia, Emilia, Frederica, Antwerpiana, Brabantia, Flandria. Unlikely, but you never know, see Luana and Zaria.

I'm curious how Albertine is pronounced. Can anyone attempt to explain, I know it might be hard to explain. Thanks in advance.

Kind of strange I wouldn't think that I would really like the name Agnes but it's quickly grown on me. I think it might be nice for a royal princess. It has history and a royal somewhat traditional sound. I like it!

I kind of think Maria or Marie could be included somewhere and also maybe Maxima's name. although I'm having a hard time making it fit with some of the combos of names I have in my head right now.

Princess Albertina-Agnes is not so difficult. Think about Alberta in Canada. But replace the -ta by -tina.

In Dutch the e in Albertina is a real 'e' while in English this is more spoken with a sort of 'u'-sound.

Anna = a very frequent name in the dynasty

Carolina = is a dynastical name and is now used by the little Princess' cousin María Carolina de Bourbon de Parme, a possible godmother

Georgina / Georgiana = female form of George, a name in the father's as well in both the grandfathers' names

Margaretha = to Prince Willem-Alexander's beloved and popular aunt Princess Margriet, also a possible godmother

Christina = an -ina sound, to Prince Willem-Alexander's aunt Princess Christina, looks unlikely to me as he seems not so close with her

I wonder if they'd consider Annette, Anita, or Aimee which are "A-list" names.

No one's betting on a 'Claudia'?
Or even Claudia Christina Ines? All family names & not yet used

but then, as everyone's saying, they're likely to go with -a(..)ia --though I hope not!

I love Antonia and Aurelia and these would be nice choices for the princess name. But maybe they will change a bit this time and go gor a non A name. Maybe Martina, Olivia or Susanna (sorry, but I don't have any idea if they are Dutch names or not).
