Since the other names of the children of Phillipe and Mathilde all have a religious meaning I expect the next child will have one too. Daniel would fit in nicely with Emmanuel and Gabriel. No idea about a girl name though, Esther and Rebecca might be too unroyal.

Which names did we have already?
Elisabeth Thérèse Marie Hélène
Gabriel Baudouin Charles Marie
Emmanuel Leopold Guillaume François Marie

There is no strict order recognisable.
- Only, the second name is a person Ph&M admire.
- There is always a Marie in the royal names.
- And there is the name of the godparent.

So I would say: again a biblic name like: Samuel, Anna, Magdalene, David, ...
Godparents: Hélène, Charles-Henri and Elisabeth have been chosen already.
Amedeo, barones Hans-Ulrich von Freyberg and Guillaume have been chosen on Philippe's side.
It's a very difficult guess. It's Mathilde's turn to deliver a male godparent and vice versa.
Maybe Maria Laura or will there be a tribute to Marie-Alix? I have no idea who can be the godfather...

A person Ph&M admire: King Albert, Queen Astrid, Queen Paola....

My final guess for the name:

Girl: Anna Astrid Laura Marie
Boy: Samuel Albert Felix Marie

I don't know much about this family, but if it's a girl, I hope they incorporate Paola in there somewhere, and a boy, I wouldn't be surprised if it was a Samuel, and Daniel, or other biblical name. But I'm rooting for a girl!:flowers:

Rossina 10-04-2007 06:23 PM

Maria laura for the girl ..... or may be Elena

morhange 10-04-2007 06:31 PM

For a boy, I love Léopold Albert Louis Philippe Marie. They could have King Albert be godfather :) For a girl, I love the names Charlotte Astrid Marie Elisabeth Joséphine

elisabetteke 10-04-2007 06:33 PM

for a girl: Johanna Charlotte Laura Marie

for a boy: Samuel Leopold ... (godfather) Marie

I really hope that princess Maria Laura will become the godmother.

LaPlusBelle 10-04-2007 06:48 PM

Marie-Sophie Astrid Ghislaine (it's one of Mathilde's middle names, and it just sounds fitting)

Samuel Philippe Henri Marie for a boy.

Aurora810 10-04-2007 07:04 PM

I think the first name will be a Biblical name, much like others have said.

If it's a boy I think the name Albert will be incorporated for sure since it hasn't been used yet for any of the King's grandchildren. I think it is also likely that Philippe's name could be used as a middle name too since it has not been used yet.

And if it's a girl I hope the name Poala will be incorporated. I like the names Josephine and Charlotte and those would both make sense but I'm not so sure that Charlotte is a biblical name. Josephine is though.

Rice 10-04-2007 08:10 PM

I am wondering if we actually get to see another Prince Albert if it's a boy. I have noticed the kings name isn't incorporated into Gabriel and Emmanuel's names at all.

Paola would be lovely to include. I think only Prince Amedeo has the name Paola incorportated into his names because she is his godmother (I think)
Perhaps Marie Paola, or Maria Paola
Princess Alexandra Charlotte Paola Marie has a nice ring to it

Raphaël would be nice for a boy.
I also hope Charlotte for a girl, but I guess it will be a more biblical name.

Sancia 10-05-2007 03:23 AM

I guess we should look into biblical names... Raphaël or Raphaëlle would be very nice.

Lila Rose 10-05-2007 01:06 PM

for a girl

Charlotte Astrid Marie ...

for a boy

Samuel Albert Marie ...

I don't think that a girl would be called so, because the baby's aunt Astrid has a daughter called Maria-Laura.

LaMinka 10-05-2007 03:13 PM

I liked what Marengo said: Esther and Rebecca. I think it would be a beautiful name for a little princess.
Elisabeth, Gabriel, Emmanuel and Esther - sounds nice.

I have noe idea for a boy, but i like Noah.

wymanda 10-05-2007 07:57 PM

Abraham Phillipe Marie Laurent

Ghislaine Marie Paola Letizia

and ask the Prince &/or Princess of the Asturias to be godparent
