Polish equivalent of this name (Antonina) is quite popular now here.
Yes, indeed. But Antoinette is too old and too unpopular in France.

Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Vendome! Just curious, do Gaston and Antoinette only have one name each?

Gaston's full name is Gaston Louis Antoine Marie. Probably we'll have to wait until Antoinette's christening to know if she'll have more names and what the names will be.

Antoinette is a lovely name, even if it is old fashioned. A happy start to the new year for the family.

My first tought was yes. But In fact Philomena's father lives in Austria. He's very sick and the whole family went to Austria. I just find it very strange that they travelled with a newborn. But, I can understand it if her father is about dying.
Guess the Christening wouldn't be as soon as Gastons in that case...

Sweet pictures indeed. Prince Gaston is sooo cute :)

Aw, she's adorable and I think Antoinette is a lovely name, really beautiful.

(A belated) Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Vendôme and little Gaston.

If I recall correctly, Jean and Philomena have spent the Christmas festivities in Vienna, where also Jean's sister Marie lives; so I guess they are still in Austria since then.

They sure had the baptism very soon after the birth almost as if there was a rush? Normally baptisms occur a few months after birth.

It was reported that Philomena's father is very sick. Maybe they wanted that he will attend the christening.
