Queen Juliana was Queen of The Netherlands from 1948 until 1980. She may have been named after Juliana, Countess of Stolberg-Wernigerode (1506-1580), who was the mother of William the Silent.

According to the Dutch language Wiki, I know not really objective and all, she was indeed named after Juliana zu Stolberg, mother of Willem de Zwijger.

In addition the youngest child and only daughter of princess Christina (who was formerly known as Marijke) is named after her grandmother: Juliana (Guillermo).

Christina's full name is Maria Christina. At first she was known as 'Marijke', Marijke is a Dutch feminine given name. It is originally a diminutive of Mary/Maria. Later on she decided to go by her 2nd name Christina.

Marie Louise of Hesse-Kassel and Johan Willem Friso, Prince of Orange were the parents of Stadhouder Willem IV, ancestors of the current Dutch Royals. Marie Louise was nicknamed Marijke Meu (Aunt Mary) in Frisia. As Marie Louise and Johan Willem Friso lived at the Stadhouder Court in Leeuwarden, Frisia at first.

I have to confess (yet again) that the first time I heard the announcement of Amalia's names, I thought they said Catharina - Analia  Blush Blush

Well, that would be unsuitable for a heir to the Dutch throne  Laugh bounce

Very original was William I. of Orange-Nassau, who named his daughters Catharina Belgica, Charlotte Flandrina, Charlotte Brabantina and Emilia Antwerpiana after the various regions of the country.

Frederick V. (the winter King of Bohemia) had a daughter called Louise Hollandine.

I've read that Eitel can't be given as individual name, but has always to be followed by another real name. It's not actually a name in German, but rather a description of a state (how a person is like).

Eitel means vain in English. So it's the Vain Friedrich.

And "Vain Friedrich" would be "Vain Frederic" if translated completely - which leads to wonder if we could not just use the age old tradition of adding  suitable and descriptive adjectives to the name:
Drunk Frederic and Eitel Mary or Willem the Dull and Bloody-good-time Maxima?

How often does a Princess have the name of Renate? Princess Sophie Renate Reuss of Kostritz (1887-1956) was the daughter of Charles Alexander, Grand Duke of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach.

When the first name of the 2nd daughter of WA and Maxima was announced (Alexia), there were people who wondered if there was a connection with an illegitimate daughter of Prince Bernhard (WA's grandfather). This illegitimate daughter is called Alexia Grinda.

But WA stated that Maxima wanted to name this daughter after WA. Apparently the name Alexander (without Willem) is used within a small circle. Alexia is therefore a derivative of Alexander, part of her father's name.
