I think Aurelia is quite nice if they want to continue with the A-ia names. It sounds whimiscal and magical to me for some reason. Juliana would be a nice middle name but I don't think they would use it as a first name. I love how most aren't giving boy names much consideration, including me. Hopefully our intuition is right!

When will we find out if it's a boy or a girl?

I think it will be another girl!

Yes I think so, too. It seems that's Dutch Tradition.
Juliana only had girls, Beatrix only had boys... and Máxima: only girls?

What about Antonia?
Fits also into the A-ia thingy, and as well as Aurelia (my first choice ) could be used as a boys name too.
How about very classic Marc Anthony or Marc Aurel?
Or not so roman ( ) Julian/Julius Aurel or Anthony? (after Queen Juliana)
If I am not mistaken both names can be pronounced quite easily in spanish as well as in dutch and in english too.

Whoever suggested Josephine, I think that's a gorgeous choice.

I also think that [being a girl, as i think the baby will turn out to be] the baby will have a simple (first) name, as Sophia or Anna. Katlijn is also a nice, elegant, not so long, name for a princess.

No clue about the other 3 or 4 names that will follow that one...

I like the name Klara for a girl, although that's not particulary spanish.
I also like the names that starts with A. Aurora, Aurelia and Antonia for example. It would be fun if they continued the tradition and continued naming their babies with names that started.

If it would be a boy I like the names Alexander, Jakob or Arjan.

Just LOVE the name Josephine, but in the names department, I wouldn't vouch for Maxima's taste, so my bet is she wouldn't go for something as European classy as 'Josephine' hope she proves us wrong...

(I mean, what was with picking Alexia??? Of all names, you pick the name of your mother-in-law's illegitimate half sister? The name 'Alexia' itself isn't the best choice anyway I think, although a nice name, it conjures up 'Russian exotic dancer' more than 'Dutch princess', to me, at least. Just my opinion, I am sure there are a lot of Alexia's in this world for whom the name is a perfect fit!

If they want the silly -ia thingy, why not go for an ultra Dutch name like Saskia for example. Note to Maxima: you may be latin, but you are princess of the Netherlands, my dear! No 'Alexia's' this time please!

Aurelia would be nice but I've kind of had it with the A-ia silliness.

Alexia was actually in honor of her father, Willem-Alexander. I don't think she had her mother-in-law's illegitimate sibling in mind.

I know that, but it's still an unfortunate choice. If they'd want to 'honor' Alexander, they could have gone with a slew of names beyond 'Alexia'. Think of Wilhelmina, Mina, Hella, Willemijn, Alexandra, Xandra, etc. etc. But no, it <had> to be Alexia. I'm sure Beatrix, privately, was amused. Not!

I love the name Josephine too. I think it would be a great name for a princess.

If they're going to continue with names starting with A I like Adela.

I do think alike, Carlota.

I don´t hope so...
Does anyone have more ideas for boys' names? i think we focused on girls' names.
Do you think they will go traditional or unexpected?

'Pluk' is the name of a well-known (in the Netherlands) fictional character named 'Pluk van de Petteflet', with 'Petteflat' being the name of the building this character lives in with his pet, a cocroach named Zaza.

I'm Dutch and besides the above-mentioned Pluk, I've never ever met anyone there with that name so I doubt the Princes of Orange or whatever their official title is, would pick this (although modern-day parents and baby names...one never knows what idiotic names they might pick..there aren't always the wisest choices out there, myoh my.. Hopefully Maxima won't be influenced by the "let's give the baby the most out-there name or else" trend! No "Pilot Inspektor" or "Ninette" here please!

Ah you know what actually?

I'm thinking if they want to be clever with an eye to the future and the importance of networking etc., they should name their third daughter:

Silvia Mary
or
Elena Marit.

And if it's a boy, he really should be:

Kofi Victor Filip Charles Claudius

for example!
