While it has been known for some time that the newborn son of Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece and his wife, Marie-Chantal Miller, would be called Odysseas, it has now been officially revealed that the young Greek prince’s full name is Odysseas Kimon.

Personally, given the names of their other children (Maria-Olympia, Konstantinos-Alexios, Achileas-Andreas), I would think that he would be called by both names, but I must admit the lack of a hyphenated name threw me off a bit.
