    Name, title and duchy is as following: Her Royal Highness The Princess Leonore Lilian Maria of Sweden, Duchess of Gotland.

    Leonore: Presumably just a name they liked. However, Sweden's last female monarch was named Ulrika Eleonora, the latter of which Leonore is a variation.
    Lilian: For Princess Lilian (née Lillian May Davies), Duchess of Halland, Welsh-born wife of Prince Bertil, Duke of Halland, a very treasured member of the Swedish royal family who died in 2013.
    Maria: For Christopher's mother, Eva Maria O'Neill.

    Leonore is pretty. I'm guessing that the last "e" would be pronounced in Sweden? It seems very odd that she's a Royal Highness, a Princess and a Duchess and the father is Chris O'Neill. Very strange.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I've heard that the "e" on the end of Leonore is not common in Sweden and that they usually spell it as Leonor, the same way as Spain and Portugal. But since this is how the little Princess's name is spelt, I would imagine that they will pronounce it with the "e" at the end.

    I like Leonore, it's a very pretty and elegant name. We have three other Royal Children in Europe who share little Leonore's name: Infanta Leonor of Spain, Princess Eleonore of Belgium and Countess Leonore of Orange-Nassau. I didn't expect Leonore to be chosen, I do like this what seems to be new Swedish tradition of surprising us with names! Lilian and Maria were though, I was almost certain that Lilian would feature. It's nice how Madeleine and Chris followed the tradition in the O'Neill Family of girls having Maria as one of their names.

    Astrid of Oldenburg has a nice name too. It goes so well with Alexandrine.
    My name is Alice, but you can call me Adelina. I'm just another Teenberry who has an obession with names, royals, history and photography.

    @Mischa: In Denmark, the E would be audible, but in Sweden, Leonore is pronounced like Leonor There's a great video from the cabinet meeting over here where one can hear the King pronounce the names.
