Congratulations to the dukes! The new prince is a Scorpio.. I like it!
Gaston is a lovely french name, but wasn't it the name of a controversial duke of Orleans (the brother of Louis XIII)?? The name could be better so..
He will be probably just happy to have a new cousin, but in theory the sex of the child isn't good news for little prince Pierre

Gaston, duc d'Orléans (1608-1660)
from Wiki
Third son of Henry IV, King of France and Marie de' Medici;
Continually plotted against his mother and Cardinal Richelieu;
Reconciled with his brother Louis XIII, he plotted against Richelieu in 1635, fled from the country, and then submitted to the king and the cardinal;
Stirred up Cinq-Mars to attempt Richelieu's murder, and then deserted his unfortunate accomplice (1642);
During the wars of the Fronde (1648–1653), he passed with great facility from one side to the other.

Perhaps the last two sentences above sum up his character.

Congratulations to Prince Jean, Princess Philomena, and to all the faithful supporters of the Orléans family. This is a day of great joy for all who appreciate the historical traditions embodied by the House of France.

A toast to little Gaston: May he live a long, healthy, and meaningful life.

There is a more recent Gaston in the family, Madame's grandfather Gaston d'Orléans, who was married to the Princess Imperial Isabel of Brazil. I know nothing about him, but he sounds like a better namesake than that 17th Century Duke!

The most recent Gaston d’Orléans was probably Gaston, Count of Eu (the son of Louis, Duke of Nemours, who himself was the son of King Louis-Philippe, and Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Kohary).

Some of the namesakes of the little Prince were mentioned here.

Talking

In fact, Gaston is an old french name, rather rare inside this family, not melodious name. And in France, today, very ridiculous name because of famous cartoon Gaston Lagaffe and because of a popular song from Nino Ferrer.
Nobody in France would like to have a King Gaston the first ! It's like to have Dagobert the first (now popular name for dogs)!
It seems a practical joke!
