Names for Willem-Alexander and Maxima's 3rd child

This is the thread to guess, suggest and/or speculate about the name of the new Prince or Princess that will probably be born in April 2007.

If it's a girl, they might call her Margarita (at least I think so), unless they carry on with the tradition of naming their daughters a name, starting with A (Amalia, Alexia).
Any chances she might be called Beatrix after grandmother or Juliana after great grandmother?

Princess Armgard / Princess Adelheid

It would be nice to name a girl Armgard or Adelheid (Adelaida):

Princess Amalia
Princess Alexia
Princess Armgard
Princess Adelheid or Adelaida

Armgard would be a nice tribute to Prince Willem-Alexander's great-grandmother Her Serene Highness Princess Armgard Cunegonde Alharda Agnes Oda of Lippe-Biesterfeld born Baroness von Sierstorpff-Cramm-Grieben formerly Countess Bodo von Oeynhausen (1883-1971).

Adelheid would fit as well because Prince Willem-Alexander's "other grandmother" was the high- and wellborn Frau Gösta Julie Adelheid Marion Marie von Amsberg born Baroness von dem Bussche-Haddenhausen (1902-1996).

Another Adelheid was: Her Majesty Queen Adelheid Emma Wilhelmine Therese of the Netherlands born Princess of Waldeck-Pyrmont (1858-1934).

On another board a poster thought that Spanish-speaking family will have difficulties with 'Adelheid' and 'Armgard'. Adelaida sounds better for them.

S.A.R. la Princesa Catharina-Amalia, la Princesa heredera de Orange, Princesa de los Países Bajos, Princesa de Orange-Nassau
S.A.R. la Princesa Alexia de los Países Bajos, Princesa de Orange-Nassau
S.A.R. la Princesa Adelaida de los Países Bajos, Princesa de Orange-Nassau

Euh... in the Netherlands we know an amaryllis as a flower which is usually blossoming during the Christmas season?

I think it would be nice to call a little girl Beatrix or a little boy Claus.

Well, as Amaryllis doesn't sound like a good choice because the Dutch think of it as a flower -- and given that W-A and Maxima speak English -- they would know that "Armgard" is considered deoderant by English speaking people!! So, I would guess that one is probably out of the running, also.

Well, I do not think that it will be Claus, as Laurentien and Constantijn have Claus Casimir, I also think Juliana and Beatrix are out as Juliana is already used within the family, albeit as a middle name and Beatrix is Amalia's middle name. As for other names, I need to think a bit and get back to the forum.

I meant as a first name. I was aware of the middle names. I think it would be nice for Queen Bea to have a little namesake. An actual Princess Beatrix not Beatrix as a middle name.

I had thought of Alexandra, but it´s the same as Alexia. i don´t think they will choose a name with A. If it´s a boy Willem is for sure one of his names.

Considering that last time Maxima insisted that the child would be named after her husband, I don't think Willem-Alexander has much choise other then to name the newborn baby after his wife. So maybe a Maximilian or Maximiliana? To dutch ears the names do not sound that good, so maybe they will only use as one of the baptism names. For a boy they probably use Jorge's anglosaxon name George, and Claus to and maybe even a Willem.

I am all with emmeleia, if it is a girl lets call her Alicia, so the other illigitimate daughter of Prince Bernhard (Alicia Bielefeld) has a royal namesake to (as does Alexia Lejeune). Anastasia is the only other A....ia name I can think of, and that is already taken by the eldest daughter of Prince Maurits. Or maybe Aurelia, but that doesn't sound very royal.

But seriously, I do not expect them to use Alicia this time, though if it is a girl it will probably start (and end) with an A.

My guess:

A boy -> Willem-Lodewijk Max(imilian) Claus George
A girl -> A...a Maximiliana/Maxima Wilhelmina Inez/Agnes (the dutchified version of Inez).

Hi Marengo -

Having just returned to the US after spending 6 yars living in the NL and marrying a Dutchman, I totally understand your logic. But I have a feeling that Lodewijk has just not had it's resurgence yet, so I do not think that it will make it into the first half of the name. Also, I can't find any instance of that name in the Dutch or other royal families after a quick brief search. Can you?
