Introducing Sofía Fernanda Dolores Cayetana Teresa Ángela de la Cruz Micaela del Santísimo Sacramento del Perpetuo Socorro de la Santísima Trinidad y de Todos Los Santos!
The pressure is on when naming a royal baby, and Fernando Fitz-James Stuart of Spain gave his new little girl several.
According to a local report, the 17th Duke of Huéscar and his wife Sofía Palazuelo face a dilemma following the recent baptism of their second daughter in Seville. Earlier this month, Fernando, 33, and Sofia, 31, celebrated the christening of their daughter Sofía Fernanda Dolores Cayetana Teresa Ángela de la Cruz Micaela del Santísimo Sacramento del Perpetuo Socorro de la Santísima Trinidad y de Todos Los Santos, El Pais reported.
The baby was born in January and named in tribute to Fernando’s late grandmother the Duchess of Alba, who had 19 names. The aristocrat died in 2014 as the most-titled person in the world through heritage and marriage with a whopping total of 57 titles, per Guinness World Records. She was five times a duchess, 14 times a Spanish grandee and 18 times a marchioness, among others. Her great-granddaughter’s moniker also honors other family members and religious devotions, El Pais said.
Despite the inclusive intentions, the Spanish newspaper reported that the baby’s name, by law, cannot be accepted by the Civil Registry, as the national record is capped at a shorter allotment.
“In the registration, the name given to the child will be expressed, although no more than one compound name may be recorded, nor more than two simple ones,” states the law on names and surnames in Boletín Oficial del Estado, a.k.a. the Official State Gazette.
The Duke and Duchess of Huéscar navigated the same situation following the birth of their first child in 2021. Fernando and Sofía named their first daughter Rosario Matilde Sofía Cayetana Dolores Teresa — which is not quite as long as her little sister’s.
While the couple’s next step regarding baby Sofía’s regal name remains unclear, they seem to be living happily ever after. Fernando and Sofía tied the knot at Liria Palace in Madrid on October 6, 2018, in a wedding attended by Queen Sofía of Spain, who is the mother of the current monarch, King Felipe.
Tatler reported that the couple met while studying at the College International Studies and that Fernando will inherit 50 titles from his father when he becomes the Duke of Alba one day. Down the line, 2-year-old Rosario is expected to become the next Duchess of Alba.
Earlier this year, the Duke and Duchess of Huéscar participated in a photocall to introduce Sofía to the world on the way home from Clinica del Rosario — not dissimilar from Prince William and Kate Middleton’s tradition! The Prince and Princess of Wales smiled on the steps of the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in London following the births of their three children Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5, through the years.
