I love the names Carolina and Catharina. Julia no doubt named after her grandmother Queen Julianna!

Carolina is the name of the sister of princess Margerita. Catharina is a name which is often used by the Dutch royalty, the cure eldest daughter of our crownprince is called Catharina-Amalia (she goes by Amalia). I have to say too that Margerita is looking good! And really happy…

Catherina is Tjalling’s grandmother, so they both honoured their grandmother’s with the baby names!
