Congratulations to the couple. And their families

I knew it was going to be a year of boys, though had a little secret hope it was going to be a girl.

Well we got four names right. Charles is a lovely surprise. But definitely the very traditional name people were hoping for. Lovely balance of family names from both families.

Charles: name of GD Jean's younger brother Prince Charles who died in 1977. The name stems from the Borbon Parma roots (Prince Felix's grandfather was Charles III). Stephanie's paternal grandfather was also Count Paul Charles de Lannoy.

Jean: for the late Grand Duke.

Philippe: Stephanie's late father

Joseph: shares the name with his father. Likely an honor to Guillaume's maternal grandfather Jose.

Marie: tradition in both families. Sons and daughters in both the Lux royal family and the de Lannoy family all have Marie in their middle name.

Guillaume: both for his dad and another traditional name for royal princes in Luxembourg.


Only surprised Henri didn't make it in there since Philippe was included. I wonder if one of the names is playing double duty, and points to his godfather which is pretty common in this family. Guillaume shares his first name with his uncle/godfather Prince Guillaume. Stephanie's eldest brother is Jehan, which is a form of Jean. Wouldn't be surprising if perhaps he was godfather with someone like Alexandra.

Wonderful news! Congratulations! Little Charles came to this world on Mother's Day. All the choices of name are expected but it's longer than I thought.

Early mother's day gift In Luxembourg, they celebrate in June.

Yes bit long even for a royal name. But GD Henri has six as well. And others like GD Jean had more.

I'm glad to hear of the birth of the HGD Couple's first child! This must be a very special day for Stéphanie as the birth of her son coincides with Mother's Day.

Congratulations to the HGD Couple on the birth of their first child!

I think Charles is a male equivalent of Charlotte, so this would recognise the new baby's great-great-grandmother Grand Duchess Charlotte, and great-grandmother Grand Duchess Joséphine Charlotte.
