Don't worry, maybe he will use his second, third.....tenth name. I hope for him. Otherwise he will be beaten at school.

His mummy is from Spain and Austria. For her it sounds maybe like an elegant and noble name.

Well, if a commoner can't bear this name, maybe a Prince can...
Something similar to our Prince Aimone of Savoy: I can't imagine a "commoner", a "normal person" (I hope you understand what I mean) carrying this name, but for a Prince of Savoy...it's all different, and this name becomes bearable.
Or another example, the name Gaddo: if I called my son Gaddo, all the people would laugh of it, but if the Count della Gherardesca calls his son Gaddo...it's all ok, quite "normal".

Well, let us hope that, in one way or another, this little boy finds a bearable way to carry this name. At this time it is not easy to live in France and be called Gaston... it is rather a burden to be overcome.

Yes, Gaston doesn't sound too bad to American ears... but in France it's the equivalent of calling a baby "Norbert" or "Dagobert." Truly a burdensome name.

What complicates matters further is that there is a prominent Gaston, Duke of Orelans (brother of Louis XIII) in the history books. He was a grand conspirator, attempted murderer, and betrayer... really not the most laudable character, who changed allegiances from one side to the other for the sake of convenience and without regard to principle. (See Warren's post #9 above).

But, of course, in naming their son Gaston, the Duke and Duchess of Vendome must have been thinking of honoring the late Countess of Paris (grandmother of the Duke), whose own grandfather was Gaston, Count of Eu. (Hanna Regina #16).

Congratulations to the pair & french royal family! But I must admit that I too am not very fond of the name... I was expecting something more elegant and special. However, its their choice and therefor all the best for the baby boy.

Here he is! 7 day old Prince Gaston is proudly presented by
his parents and grandmother Princess Marie-Therese.

Gaston Louis Antoine Marie weighed 3.5 kg when he was
born on November 19th. The pictures were taken yesterday,
November 26, 2009 at the Duchess' and Duke's Parisian
apartment.

Very cute baby! Philomena looks fantastic in these photos. You would never guess that she gave birth just over seven days ago.

Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos that captured such a happy moment!
It is a pleasure to see Duchess of Montpensier holding her grandson.

Thank you Iceflower for the lovely pictures, they're all wonderful. I like the ones with the Prince's mother holding her grandson and the one of Papa gazing at his son.

Again, thank you so much Iceflower!! I agree, the Duke is quite colorful, perhaps when the Duchess was still in hospital after giving birth, he came home and there wasn't any other clean sweaters? Anyway, lovely family pictures.
