Oh, I'm really happy to hear that! It must be so tough to go through fertility problems, and I guess they had a difficult time. Wonderful news.

All the best to you, Marieke. I hope you won't have to wait long for your dream to come true. I've seen it happen many times and it's such a joy.

Thank you so much Careen. We hope so too!

Felix's Kids:

Amalia Gabriela Maria Teresa

Liam Henri Hartmut

Interesting that MT comes after Claire's mother while Henri goes before Claire's father.  Thinking

I guess it's the traditional way -
a girl has her own name - maternal grandmother -  paternal grandmother
a boy has his own name - paternal grandfather - maternal grandfather.

Prince Felix's children should have been given more traditional names! They are too close to the throne to let fantasy loose...

So you're a royal highness by marriage? How droll.

I think Amalia is fine.  Both Amalia and Amelia have long been used by royal families.  Catharina-Amalia is an example.  George III had a daughter named Amelia.  And there are many more.  Liam on the other hand is a form of William that is not related to the languages spoken in Luxembourg and is an odd choice in my opinion.

Personally, I find the idea of having to use a traditional, or royal, name extremely ridiculous and limiting. I mean, what if there’s a family member, or godparent that they are close to, and admire? Is it really “nope, sorry, but since no born royal has ever had that name before, no royal ever will”? Like I said, seems ridiculous.

Plus I have always thought that one should not give children names that will eventually keep them from being taken seriously, so to everyone who wants to name their child Blue Pancake: have you thought how that might look on a business card for anything but a coffeeshop?
Seriously I think if you want something funny, go for a regular version of it and nickname your child whatever you want. That way Blue Pancake can still show her passport with a plain Betty Patricia or and be nominated for president... or become King Peter...
So in Liam's case: why did they not go for the usual Wilhelm, Willem (or whatever the name is in Lux) and call him Liam privately?
I know many people who have nickname-versions, hate them as adults and wished their parents had used the original name.

If Liam would have been given the more formal name, it would have been Guillaume.

There's such a fascinating variety of cultures and social expectations around naming and it varies so widely from region to region and family to family. I love to hear unusual names for a region that are totally common names to me locally! My little one is Liam and he's one of 2 liams in his grade at school! It's a very common name  here, and Liam is usually not used as a nickname for William so it stands alone much more here than elsewhere.
