What kind of name is Inaki?

Elsa M. 12-15-2004 12:55 PM

Iñaki is an Basque hipocoristic variation of Ignacio (cf. saint Ignacio de Loyolla).

At her engagement, Letizia broke with the traditional watches and presented Felipe with a pair of gold cuff-links and an 1850’s copy of Mariano José Larra’s «El doncel de Don Enrique el doliente».

Does anybody know what was Cristina's gift to Iñaki?

Today the duchess of palma de mallorca following their father's advice, Don Juan Carlos knew how to take its bigger sister's good example, and May 3 1997 he/she takes place its hand petition in the same place. in this occasion, Don Juan Carlos would comment: "this it is second", he already added to the alone I have left one it put, without a doubt, ad put in the aim point to prince felipe, to the one who a journalist, in the moment in that the heir of the crown posed with all in the petition of his smaller sister's hand, ask him: " is not it mentioned?" Don Felipe responded then with another question: " who me?". and being taken to the hand to the ear as if he wanted to hear better, he added: " I don't hear anything. I am a little deaf today"
if the dukes of lugo had presented before the journalists leaving for the main door of the palace, it Cristina and their engaged , Iñaki Urdangarin, they arrived going for a walk for the gardens up to where the informants were, and the appearance took place in the perron that gives to the living room of audiences of the palace of the zarzuela. it was seven in the afternoon when they could take the couple's first pictures.
as gifts an ring was exchanged that the infanta showed in her right hand (it was an alliance of brilliant), and a clock that Iñaki also took in right hand

Don't know about it being a surprise engagement, but it was surely a quick one. They had just met at the Olympic Games in Atlanta which took place in August or September, IIRC. Thus they got engaged after only 8 or 9 months, at the most. :)

When you know you have found the one, you just know and I think that's what happened between Cristina and Iñaki:) :)
