Names for Felipe & Letizia 2nd girl

This is the thread to guess the name of the new Infante/Infanta that will be born in May 2007. Remember that it'll probably only have one name like its sister.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift... That's why it's called present...

Since the first born was named Leonor, a name associated with many of her ancestors from all Europe, my guess is it will be another historical name.
If it's a girl I doubt she will be named Isabel (Isabella/Elizabeth) because the previous Queen with that name ended up in exile. So, my guess is on the names of former Queens Maria Cristina or Victoria Eugenia. Queen Victoria Eugenia was Felipe's Godmother.
If it's a single name like Leonor's, then I'll bet on Eugenia (Eugene)

If it's a boy, I doubt it will be named Felipe like his father or Juan Carlos like his grand father. My bet will be in the historical name Fernando (Ferdinand), the king of Aragon who unified Spain with his marriage to Queen Isabel of Castille.

i haven't thought of a possible name for a baby daughter, but i'd hope that if they have a baby son and if they will follow a tradition, they'll name him Alfonso--after the King's grandfather.

If it's a girl maybe Sofia. And if it is a boy maybe like dad Felipe or Juan Felipe a mix of grandpa and dad.

Like Toledo, I think Fernando for a boy would be possible.
And for a girl: Beatriz.

If it's a boy, his name might be Alfonso.
But if it's a girl, I think her name will be Sofia.

I think they will respect the traditonal names in the SRF: Juan, Carlos, Alfonso.
For a girl, I guess they will choose Sofia in honour of the Queen.

I'd like very much the choice of an old or historical name, like Leonor. I don't think Sofia will be choosen: if it should have been choosen, it would be have been the name of their little girl, instead of Leonor (but maybe I'm wrong)

I don't think they will call the possible girl Sofia (although I'd love it ). Remember what was last year? The journalists asked king JC what does he think about the 1st child of the Princes being called "Juan Carlos" and he said that he wouldn't advise parents to choose this name and that he would say "no" for that. I think the same could have happened with Sofia, I find it weird that none of her 3 granddaughters wasn't called "Sofia".

Personally I think that they will again choose a beautiful and not too much popular name, as it was in case of their first bundle of joy . And we will be all again very surprised (when I have seen the title of the thread-"Infanta Leonor"-for the first time I couldn't believe my eyes, since the name didn't appear neither on this forum, nor in magazines and tens of polls)...

I also vote for Sofia, it would be nice to name her after her grandmather.For boys i don´t know, the historical names used by the Spanish Royalty like Alfonso, Felipe, Fernando, are awful for me, so i can not choose.

If the baby is a girl I would love them to name her Sofía. In honour of her grandma! (and me) joking of course. If not then I like Maria-Mercedes (didn't Felipe once say he would like to name one of his daughters after his grandmother)?

For a boy I like Luis or Alfonso or Carlos-Felipe. I'm sure whatever they choose will be lovely!

BTW: this isn't going on what they should name their baby based on history, just what I like

I like Isabella most of all! Eugenia is nice too.
For boy Fernando or Federico. It seems infanta Cristina has used all male names Alfonso seams a weak name - don't know why.
