White-eyed River Martin Pseudochelidon sirintarae

Since its description I have been unable to reconcile the spelling of the eponym sirintarae with Thonglongya's 1968 dedication, "I propose that the new bird be named in honour of Her Royal Highness Princess Sirindhorn Thepratanasuda, the third daughter of King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand, for her gracious interest in the wildlife of the Kingdom." Can anybody throw more light upon this? Is there a link between sirintarae and Sirindhorn?

H.R.H. Princess Sirintara?

There is a "H.R.H. Princess Sirintara" listed as a member of the Siam Society, at least between the years 1971 and 1976, according to The Journal of the Siam Society 59(2)-64(2).

I do not know if she is the same as "Her Royal Highness Princess Sirindhorn Thepratanasuda", maybe some Thai Members of this Forum can answer this question?
