Gender, name, and godparent guesses for Guillaume and Stephanie’s first child
 
I would love if Crown Princess Victoria is one of the godparents as well as some Belgian and Dutch royals like Queen Mathilde and Queen Maxima.

Wouldn't Crown Princess Elisabeth be a good choice for a godmother? The two will probably reign at the same time and meet many times because of geography and the family relationship.

For a boy i would like the name Adolphe as not only the first Grand -Duke of the Nasau-Weilburg braNch was nmaed Adolphe but it is also an old nassau Family name. But very unlikely given the Fact that this name has an unfortunate connection since the 1930's

Both of the child's grandfathers have Albert as a secondary name so that might be given as one of the names if it's a boy.

I would also love if Elisabeth was one of the godparents. Maybe Elisabeth will be a godparent to many royal children someday like Crown Princess Victoria.

I think more likely are either Jean or Philippe if it is a boy.

This is such joyful news. As for names this is gonna be a bit hard. I would say Alix for a girl but theres already 2 Alix as grandhildren on the G.Duchess's side and then theres her sister in law Alexandra. I was looking at Charlotte but theres also a granddaughter named Charlotte on G.Duchess's side. I like Madeline (G.Duchess maternal Grandmothers name). So for a girl imma go with Madeline Alix Marie for now. For a boy im hoping for a Maximilian. I love that name and there are 3 (i believe) dukes with that name. Plus each name will have Marie in it (seems to be the case in both Luxembourg and Belgium) So for now imma go with Maximilian Guillaume Marie. For god parents, i think the Duchess of Brabant will be godmother. The families have very close ties. If not, maybe the King and Queen of Belguim? Princess Alexandra too.

For a girl, would a Marie-Adélaïde II be a possibility, or does the image of Grand Duchess Marie-Adélaïde remain tainted?

It would be interesting if the couple departed from the recent tradition of using the French form of given names, but I am not expecting it to happen.

I think maybe Stephanie will give names inspired by looking into her Lannoy family tree, or Alix as her passed parents' names: Alix for the girl or Phillipe for the boy for sure, but not as the first name. Beautiful name is Baudouin (de Lannoy) - a connection with Belgian Royal Family, Valentin, Florent, Antoine, Maximilien, Jean, Adrien, Jacques, François. Madeleine, Jacqueline, Claudine, Hélène, Marguerite, Eleonore, Clementine, Josephine, Isabelle. So many beautiful names for a girl.

Princess Alix Maria Teresa Josephine-Charlotte Stephanie of Luxemburg

Prince Jean Henri Philippe Maria Guillaume of Luxemburg

Godparents: Princess Alexandra of Luxemburg, Count Jehan de Lannoy.

Jean or Henri for a boy.
Charlotte or Alix for a girl.

W.Y.CII 12-06-2019 07:13 AM

Personally I hope it will be a girl so we will have another female future monarch:biggrin:.


Girl: Antonia/Isabelle for the first name, and Alix, Madeleine, Teresa or Josephine came after it
Boy: Joseph/Alexandre for first name, Jean, Henri or Philippe for the middle names

Godparents: I think normally they will choose close relatives (parents' silbing or grandparents)? So probably Stephanie's sibling Jehan or Natalie, and Alexandra or Felix. But like many of you I would love to see Elisabeth of Belgium being a godparent too.

suztav 12-06-2019 07:27 AM

I expect that Alice, her mother’s name, will be in the mix if not the first name.

Alix-Marie Teresa Josephine Charlotte

Pranter 12-06-2019 07:57 AM

I like the names Jean, Phillipe and Henri ...maybe they can use all of them in one order or another. I kinda like Phillipe best for a first name.

For a girl I really like Helena, Josephine, Madeleine and even Natalie for a name.

That would be very nice, as well as marking the first time that a woman would become the head of the House of Nassau while there were males of that lineage still living. But four of the five children and three of the four grandchildren (in male lineage) of Grand Duke Henri are male, so a boy appears to be the safer guess. ;)

In that event, I would love to see them follow the precedent set with the names of Grand Dukes Jean and Henri and revive the name of another ruling count or duke of Luxembourg. A Sigismond or Othon would be a refreshing change from the numerous Jeans and Guillaumes in the Nassau family (though I have no idea how the names of medieval monarchs might sound from a modern Luxembourgian viewpoint).

Absolutely perfect. Both of them!

I adore CP Victoria but she has an army of godchildren at this point.

I would like to see the young Duchess of Brabant as godmother, and Prince Felix as god father. Or Prince Louis.

Boy: Joseph Guillaume Philippe Alexandre
Girl: Marie Alix Madeleine Alexandra.

Godparents: Duchess of Brabant, Count Olivier de Lannoy.
