Irini is a Greek word meaning peace. Pronounced exactly the same is also a quite common female name in Greece, given quite often and not only in war period. The GRF had also other Irini, the duchess of Aosta the daughter or King Konstantine 1st of the Hellenes and aunt of Irini daughter of King Pavlos.
So the story of the baby girl named after a residence area... at least funny...
Orthodox names are given with strict rules, especially at this period. To name a baby it should exist a Saint of the orthodox church having this name. Full stop. So a residence area..

Wikipedia — "Nellmapius renamed the farm Irene Estate, after his daughter Irene Violet Nellmapius. Irene is derived from the Greek word meaning peace. She used to pronounce her name with three syllables: Ireenee, it is still pronounced like this today."

So while I don't believe Princess Irene was specifically named for the place, the place and the name are the same. And perhaps might have served as an inspiration for her parents. But she very likely could have been "Irini" if they'd stayed anywhere else, too.

Queen Sofia organized a small party for Princess Irene's 80th birthday in Zarzuela. King Felipe, Queen Letizia, Infanta Sofía and Queen Anne Marie attended the celebration.
