I agree, it is Maxima's turn now, though a name like that would be rather horrible. Maybe they could make it a Willem-Maximiliaan?

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!
Hahaha ur right Princess Olga, I read it from that book during my Dutch lessons... and when I asked, I was told it was a very, very rare name, but still it existed...

Willem-Maximiliaan...not that bad... but I doubt whether Willem would be the first name...

How about Claus-Maximiliaan?

Nice statistic...and i'm sure Máxima won't break the tradition

I hope she has a boy, but I have a felling that it will be another girl. I hope that somehow Sophie, or Emma is in the name

I guess a nice name for a baby girl should be Wihelmina, just to honour Queen Beatrix Grand Mother...If it is a boy, I should like Willemjn, as it was already suggested here. Yes...I think that it would be very good to honour Queen Wihelmina.

Well, Wilhelmina sounds terribly old-fashioned, so I do not think they wll use that in a first name, but maybe s one of the chother names.

I agree with you that it is a pity they did not use ´Wilhelmina' before. Catharina-Amalia will be the first head of the fmily that does not have a reference to William of Orange in her name.

Wouldn't it be nice if she has a boy and to name it Maximilian. Very cool! But for some strange reason I have a feeling she's carrying another girl. And if it's a girl I'm not sure what would be a good name. Maybe they can still do something with Maxima's name.

Is there any type of protocol that needs to be followed for the baby's name? Just curious!

Or maybe Maxine. Actually I think I'm way off. I think Maxima and W-A have really kept things interesting when it comes to naming their children. Which is great I like that they don't take the traditional route. Catherina is a great royal name but wasn't known to be a name in the Dutch royal family until now of course and Alexia was a bit of a surprise as well.

I don't think if they name the baby Wilhelmina, they would call it Mina for short since in Argentina "mina" is the slang for woman...ugly

That's correct, Princess Emma...where did you learn our slang?

However, I serioulsy doubt whether they would actually take that detail into account when naming the new princess - if she happened to be a girl.

I also think she wouldn't be named Wilhelmina, but somehow else...some less-relevant name. After all, she would be the third... but thinking about it from another point of view, it wouldn't have been too wise to name their first daughter Wilhelmina or Juliana (as first names, that is), being the Heiress to the throne... wouldn't be original to have another Queen name W or J after less than a century!

Why not Juliana as a first name if it's a girl? Just because it's one of her sister's names shouldn't preclude her from using it herself.

Juliana is also the name of one of Willem-Alexander's cousin, Juliana Guillermo. So I think the chances of that name being chosen is very silm. I am all for Princess Emma but I think if its a girl they will stick with an "A" name. Not sure for a boy.

Wouldn't it be nice if the baby were born on Willem-Alexander's 40th birthday?

Yes, that would have been the best present
