¿Qué nombre han elegido Beatrice y Pierre para su primer hijo?

Say wat. I refuse to believe that, just like I refuse to believe India does not have a more traditional name.

Congratulations to happy parents.

What we can surely say is that the three Casiraghis surprised us each time, Sacha, India, Raphael, Felice.. Noone of these names was expected.

A second though... Imagine with one brother and two cousins how "the unique precious little princess" will always be growing India.

Well, in Italy Felice is a traditional and old-fashioned name, all but uncommon especially within the older generations

CONGRATULATIONS to the best looking aristocratic couple out there (fait accompli their son is going to be gorgeous to boot).

I also do prefer Felix to Felice but whatever.
For italian names, I like Amadeo, valentino and Amaury.

Does Felice mean "Happy" ?

Congrats anyway

Tbh it's the first time I have ever heard of the Italian version of Felix. But it fits somehow, I mean how can you not be lucky to be born to to these parents

Felix comes from Latin, as well as Felice of course, and it means "happy".

No kidding!!

And if the boy had to be called by that name I prefer the Italian "Felice"..."Felix" always remains me of the American classic cartoon Felix the Cat...

Congratulations to the couple on their new little boy, continuing the family tradition of boys first. And congrats to the entire family. I am sure all the grandparents are thrilled and anxious to meet him. And that Stefano is likely looking down very proudly.

Has the name been confirmed? And spelling ? I actually think it cute, even spelling. But I do notice the article it comes from, uses the Italian form of the family names, Alberto instead if Albert, Carlotta instead of Charlotte and Carolina instead if Caroline. It would be fitting, since they are both Italian, to use Felice but I am curious to see spelling confirmed.

The boys at least have more traditional names. Alexandre is one if Alberts middle names. Raphael is one of the middle names if count piere de polignac. I wonder if Felis comes from the borromeo or Cassiraghi tree some where.

Why would they use Felis? It's not a name in Italian. Felice and the variant form Felicio are the Italian forms.

My spell check at work, I obviously meant Felice as I was talking about the article.

My point is, is the name infact Felice? The magazine in question uses the Italian names even when incorrect. carlotta may be the Italian form of Charlotte, but her name is Charlotte. Same with Alberto and Carolina. My point do we know Felice is the legal spelling of his name or is the magazine using the Italian form like his aunt, grandmother and great uncle?

Philip. Felipe and Philippe are the same name, but

Hola, does no use italian names. It's a spanish magazine and it use the spanish version of the grimaldi/casiraghi names.

But I think there is a general misunderstanding. The article does not say that the boy will be called Felice. It says that the parents thought about naming him Felice but apparently they have changed their minds.
