Congratulations to the couple!
Little Princess Alix has a very intriguing name. I've never come across Imagina before, but perhaps it's not so surprising since it's been used in the family before. What about the usage of Imagina in Germany overall - how rare is it? I'm very interested in names which is why I'm asking.

First it might have cost the I(Y)senburg family quite an effort to finally allow their sons to marry commoners (this is why I believe Alexander was already in his mid 40ies when he married Sarah) and now the possibly big disappointment that their first child and child of the heir to the I (Y)senburg noble house is a girl. (All his three sisters have firstborn sons!!!) I believe both couldn´t make IVF again otherwise it would have become conspicuous because I believe his sister Sophie Prussia did with her firstborn twins and therefore the not so important house of Isenburg had not to do their possibly intention to use IVF as well.....
It´s a jinx on it or maybe an amusing coincidence that so many heirs to thrones or noble houses have a firstborn girl whereas their siblings (brother or sister) who have no influence on the succession all have firstborn sons . (f.i. Monaco, Spain, Sweden - I bet S+CP will have a son..., Norway (MM´s first child is a son and of course her first child with Haakon came out to be a girl...)

This is pure speculation
Besides we live in 2015 today and not in 1800

Of course but that´s what made the meaning of noble/royal houses and I´m quite sure they mourn the fact that we are´nt in the 18th or 19th century any more -except of the negativities of course .But in 1800 they had the power and meaning that is gone nowadays and IMO with "keeping old traditions" (male heir f.i.) they still try to differentiate from the common people. It´s like with the "Hausgesetz" (house rules) of the former Imperial family of Prussia/Hohenzollern. One uncle of GF tried for years to overrule this law but failed even in European hight court or so.

May be some try, but today they don't have that power or money. They are compleetly not interesting to the common people and as long as they don't bother me with their Haustraditions, they should really live according to their traditions.
Besides I doubt that IVF can be used to influence the gender of a child for that reason (maybe for some indian millionairs, using their money in private clinics).
It is money that makes the world go around

I have never heard that name being used before. So it's not at all common. On the other hand it has become very common to use unusual names, so in that respect they are kind of following a current trend.

I wonder how it would be pronounced? Where would the emphasis be placed? As in Image or imagine

Baptism of I.D. Princess Alix Imagina of Isenburg

Thank you, eya. I'm on my phone so cannot "thank" you, as my computer is playing up.

Princess Alix is a beautiful baby, and I love her christening gown.
