Me too! That;s one of the best one's out there imo! Hedwig, that's such a special name! Maxima wouldn't like it though probably: I certainly get the sense she doesn't take a shine to Northern European names, which is too bad.

I doubt, they use the same or a very similar name again.
Catherine is Amalias double name, I would find it very strange if they were to use it again.
Same with Alexander, Alexandra, Alice, Alicia, it is much too similar to Alexia.
I would rather assume, that in case of a boy they would look for something that resembles Maximas name, Maximilian for ex.
With a girl, I really think they will stay with the A-initial.

I don´t think they will use such Spanish names, they would sound very strange for dutch people. I think they will keep the choosing traditional names of the Orange House.

I think they will stick to the letter A is the baby is a girl, so maybe Anna for a girl?

If the baby is a boy I would like as a previous poster said a name that resembles Maxima, so Max or Maximilian would be great.

True, but Alexia isn't really a familyname though. And to dutch ears it doesn't really sound that good either. More then one person (on television and people I know) considered it a somewhat vulgar choise.

To Marcus: though I personally love the name Anna, there is already the daughter of Princess Maurits, Anastasia (Anna) van Lippe-Biesterfeld van Vollenhoven. I do not think they will use that name again for this generation.

If a girl:

ANTONIA would be my guess for the "A" name...

Helena? That sounds regal enough.

All bets off for the boy...I bet it is something typically Dutch with a tip to the German side (Papa Claus)...

yes that is very true: more than one person in my own circle of Dutch friends have told me the name Alexia rather conjures up images of an exotic stripper than it would the image of a dignified princess..

Although of course strictly speaking, the name Alexia <does> run in the Oranje family, albeit in a vulgar way, if you will, indeed (the queen's half sister Alexia is the product of Bernhard's not-so-straight shooting ways)...so yes when I heard they chose that name, my thought was: what were these people thinking given the not so great connotations of this name in this family?

Jorge? Gosh I hope you're wrong. Papa-in-law Jorge Z. might be a jolly fellow to hang out with on a private level...but morally corrupt is a label that's been attached to him on more than one occasion, what with him denying publicly that he knew anything was amiss, human-rights-wise, when he was a minister in the Videla regime. If they name their kid Jorge as the first name, this prince and princess are complete ignorant idiots, which I don't exactly hold them for. They seem quite in tune these days with the way they are perceived by the common folk, and I don't think they'd make such a mistake.

Love the name Augusta, though, too!! But what about simply 'August' for a boy? Would be quite cute, no? And much better than Jorge, which, corrupt father's name or no, is not a good name in my opinion for a prince, let alone a Dutch one. It doesn't ring right. Why not "August Martin" for a boy? Or "Martina Augusta" for a girl. After her brother.

It is pity that Anna is occupaid...
I like Antonia and Anabelle as well and Wilhelmina.
In Orange Nassau family now they have many kids and nice and historical names "with background" names are occupaid.

Since I voted for a baby girl for W-A and M, I predict that they will name her Sophie or Emma. I don't think they will carry on the "A" tradition, and I don't think they will give their baby a hyphenated name either.
