I like the name a lot (the way they pronounce it is actually practically the same as the name Lena is pronounced in dutch, but that is probably coincidence )

It's a Girl for Zara and Mike: June 18, 2018

Probably just as likely that they won’t but it’s fun to speculate.


My cat Zelda knows the “ah” sound as well as her name, so a couple of times when my mom has called upstairs for me, Zelda has poked her head around the corner, and has that look on her face that says “Here I am!” Then my mom tells her “No, not Zelda; Sarah!”

I think most parents do it that way. With both my kids, we took the paperwork home and filed ourselves. My oldest didn't have a name for 5 days after his birth. He had a middle and a last, obviously, but we had a hard time with his first.


I pronounced Lena, Lay-na naturally, do others pronounce it LEE=nah?

Maybe eventual Eugenie and Jack's daughter?
Eugenie is the only Queen's granddaughter who doesn't have Elizabeth among her names.

Don’t they pronounce Mia like Maya? That one always struck me as odd and not phonetic.

I suppose Lena is Layna as in the end of Magdalena, though that has different pronunciations too. Lena makes me think of Ole and Lena jokes. Different pronunciations make it a different association.

Mike Tindall responded to a question by Marlene Koenig on Twitter earlier tonight and said the names are pronounced Lay-na and Me-a.

No, Mia is Mee-a. While Lee-na seems the popular pronunciation in the US, Lay-na is more prominent in many countries in Europe. Its often a nickname for names like Magdalena which ends with a lay-na sound.

Very pretty name. It sounds lovely with Mia

Both Peter and Zara used Elizabeth for their second daughter.




Gatcombe is sure to be filled with laughter at holidays with the four little girls soon to be running around. Mike already seems putty for Mia, I am sure Lena will be the same.

Possible that Lena Elizabeth will be Princess Anne's last grandchild.

Lena, simple and unique (among royal babies), I like it!

Anyway, I've always pronounced Lena as 'LAY-na' like in Elena, never 'LEE-na', so it's not a problem for me

I like the fact that Elizabeth was used for the great-grandmother, The Queen.

Not a fan of the name. Reminds me of the character in A Raisin in the Sun.
Maybe because that is the only place I have seen the name Lena.
Or maybe I just like classic names.

Not a fan of the name itself, but I like the pronounciation, Lay-na is way better tha Lee-na. And I always thought Mia was pronounced like Mia in Princess Diaries movie, glad I was not wrong, I don't like the Maya version.

I love the way they pronounce it. My 10-year-old niece is named Helena. But you better pronounce it correctly or she will politely correct you, something she's been doing since she started school at 5.

It makes sense when the 'lena' is at the end of a name, but even then the pronunciation can vary. Consider Helena: one can say He-lay-na, but also He-leh-na as well as He-lee-na. Seeing 'Lena' as a stand alone I am inclined to say Lee-na rather than Lay-na.
