I really, really want this new baby to be a girl. I have a feeling it will be Stephanie's last child. She will turn 39 shortly before the birth.

I love the name Alix. And I see Princess Alexandra as godmother and one of Stephanie's young de Lannoy nephews as godfather.

I also like the name Alix, but I don't think it will be their baby's first name (if it is a girl). Like Charles, they will choose a name they like (Alix might be the second or third name).

As for godparents, 50% is obvious: it will be a sibling from Stephanie and a sibling from Guillaume. If it is a girl, I think it will be Princess Alexandra, but if its a boy, I think Prince Sebastian will be the godparent.

Boy names:
- David
- Eliot
- Marcel
- Pierre
- Marc
- Gustave

Girl names:
- Celine
- Emma
- Ines
- Lara
- Louise
- Lucie.

If they go traditional, one of the names for a girl should be 'Wilhelmine'.

Just as they did with Charles, Gui and Stephanie will almost certainly select a dynastic name for their "spare".

I don’t think they will pick most of those names listed because those ones mostly aren’t traditional royal or Royal and Luxembourgish dynastic names.

The godparents will probably be four, two from Guillaume’s family and two from Stephanie’s. If it will be a girl, two godmothers from both parents. For the boy, it will two godfathers from both parents.

Baby name guessing always a favorite. And for one of my favorite couple's

Can expect 1. Long 2. traditional 3. family names included 4. Marie

Charles:
-Charles: brother of GD Jean
-Jean: the late Grand duke
-Philippe: Stephanie's late father
-Joseph: in honor of Maria Theresa's father
-Marie: used for sons and daughters in both families
-Guillaume: both his father and family tradition

My top choices:

Boy is harder. Unless name him for one of his uncles most of the names in the family are in use.

Prince Robert Henri Christian Marie Felix

-Robert: Prince Felix's father Robert of Bourbon-Parma
-Henri: grandpa as he got no nod last time
-Christian: name used in both families. Stephanie's 2nd oldest brother
-Marie:family tradition
-Felix: uncle and other family


Princess Marie-Alix Teresa Christine Elisabeth Wilhemine
-Marie-Alix: Marie for family tradition and Alix for Stephanie's mother
-Teresa: paternal grandmother
-Christine: or Claudine, Stephanie's middle names
-Elisabeth: family name
-Wilhemine: pretty traditional like Guillaume with boys


Godparents,one from either side:

If girl: Princess Alexandra and Count Jehan de Lannoy (her eldest brother)

boy: Prince Felix and Countess Nathalie (oldest sister)

I guess the baby will also have six names as little Charles.

I'm pretty sure Alix, Marie and Teresa will be three of her middle name if it's a girl, and Marie, Guillaume will be two of his middle name if it's a boy Antonia is my first pick for girl when G&S was expecting their first child, it still is this time. Not much idea for the boy as little Charles already took many very possible names in both family, may be a couple of name will be used again?

For girl,
Antonia/Louise Alix Teresa Marie Josephine Charlotte, or Joanne Elisabeth Madeleine Wilhelmine Marie Stephanie

For Boy -
Joseph/Benoit Henri Jean Paul Marie Guillaume, or Jean-Claude Marie Willem Philippe Carl Adolphe (lol I just throw four names from ancestors as the middle names)

I'd say we may expect quite a few names, given that Charles has 6:
Charles Jean Philippe Joseph Marie Guillaume

Full names of parents:
Guillaume Jean Joseph Marie
Stéphanie Marie Claudine Christine

Meaning that Charles got ALL his father's name with two extra (Charles and his grandfather Philippe)

So, let's take a guess for a boy:
Albert Henri Antoine Olivier Marie Guillaume

I don't necessarily like 'Albert' but it's a name both their fathers have in common as one of their middle names - and as they already used the name of a king for their first son, why not for the second as well.

And for a girl:
Alix Charlotte Teresa Christine Marie Wilhelmine

Alix is of course both the name of Stephanie's mother as well as a name in the Luxembourgian grand ducal family - I'm not sure that they'd pick this name as first name but I like it and to me it works with Charles.

(using the helpful overview at Luxarazzi)

With uncle Olivier and aunt Alexandra as the godparents.

As Gaelle is already godmother to Charles, I'd think they will choose another sister to honor

Alix is a pretty name, but I doubt it will be used as first name. Like Charles has his maternal grandfather's name in third place, Alix could be the third name for the baby girl (if it's a girl obviously). If its a boy, the third name could be Henri.

But I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't follow the traditional route. Sometimes, royals name their first-born with a regal name, and choose a more relaxing-modern name for a second and third child. Why not?

I don't mind boy or girl; as I had assumed Charles would be an only child; so lovely news for the family.

Some royals do but Guillaume and Stephanie seem to be more of the traditional sort... First, Guillaume marrying a countess. Giving their first son 6 names including all his father's names... So, I do expect a royal/family/traditional name.

You really think they would pick 4 names that his brother already has as the child's names? While some royals do use the same names for different children, I do hope that the child, if a boy, also gets his own names...

Charles is: Charles Jean Philippe Joseph Marie Guillaume
(with only Charles and Philippe being specific to him - the other 4 names he shares with his father)
