Guess the Name and Sex of Laurentien and Mabel's Babies
Since there will be at least 2 births in the Dutch Royal family this year (and hopefully many more to come from other families as well) does anyone care to speculate on names?

I think that in the Dutch Royal Fmaily they will have Wilhelmina in the name somewhere if it is a girl, and perhaps Wilhelm or some other historically important name from the beginning of the Dutch royal family. I will continue to research names and such and hopefully come up with some more ideas!

I do hope however, that Mabel and Friso find a better name than Ninette! It sounds a bit like Ninny! However with mabels penchant for bows, who knows what she will come up with next!

All ideas welcome!

Maybe we can also speculate on whether they're going to have boys or girls? I think both of them will have boys. Maybe we can add a poll with these options?

-both of them will have a boy
-both of them will have a girl
-Mabel will have a girl, Laurentien will have a boy
-Laurentien will have a girl, Mabel will have a boy

I guess the names will be quite a surprise, as normal with the DRF. It could as well be that Wilhelmina or Willem will be one of the christening names, but I don't think they will be the first names of the children. I'm still hoping for a Juliana, Julie or something like that (if there are going to be any girls) or a Sophie. I think these names wil have to come from Laurentien & Constantijn, because Mabel & Friso will probably choose something weird. I would have loved the name Ninette for Luana, I think it's way better (though it might be a bit old fashioned).

Perhaps we could discuss names and the sexes of the babies in the respective threads announcing their arrivals.

Here for Mabel:

And here for Laurentien:

This way, it will be less confusing.

Guess the sex of Mabel's and Laurentien's babies
Guess the sex of the two new additions to the Dutch household that will be born in 2006.

I've always said that it would be two boys (though I have serious doubts now), but I voted for that option anyway. :)

Princess_Beatrix 05-09-2006 10:15 AM

I voted for the opposite: Two girls. ;)

LadyS 05-09-2006 10:25 AM

I voted a boy for Laurentien and a girl for Mabel.

Lila Rose 05-09-2006 12:05 PM

I voted a girl for Laurentien , and a boy for Mabel , because all the second children in the dutch royal family ( except for Alexia) are boys !

sara1981 05-09-2006 02:09 PM

I think that, too! But I could see Mabel with both, a boy and another girl, but strangely, I only picture Laurentien with a girl!

I think they are going to have both girls. Although we do need boys in the family!

Marengo 05-09-2006 05:51 PM

I voted for 2 boys (And I am still hoping for 2 more girls for Maxima and WA as well)

janos614 05-09-2006 06:55 PM

Have Maxima and W-A said how many kids they want?

margotantoinette 05-09-2006 06:56 PM

I think two boys!

Lady Jennifer 05-09-2006 07:01 PM

I said two girls, but I'm generally wrong with these things. But maybe I'll be correct with this prediction! :)

I remember they once said they wanted to have a large family. :)

BeatrixFan 05-10-2006 10:29 AM

I think we'll have two girls and one will be called Beatrix.

viola 05-10-2006 11:14 AM

I think both of them will have boys.

Stefanie 05-10-2006 12:12 PM

A girl for Mabel because....
my theory is: If the children come fast one after the other (not more than one and a half year in between) it will be the same gender than the first child (f.i. Alexia of Greece, Maxima)I know, I canīt proof that but I have the feeling that there is something in it.
