Once I saw the swedish court hadn't released anything I started to doubt that photo was the one of Victoria and Daniel's son. Very creepy
Expressen writes that the fake photo is spreading at the social media, among them at a fake Facebook account claimed to be Madeleine's. At the photo it is claimed that it comes from an Instagram account of Daniel's sister. But despite the fact that the profile on Facebook is fake congratulations for the picture and even comments are pouring in.
The creator of the account on Facebook has, according to Expressen's research, made it from an address in Sollentuna outside Stockholm. Several people have also contacted Expressen to ask if it is the first official picture of Prince Oscar.
But the court denied that the photo that is now spread on social media, is Prince Oscar:
- No, that's not true, says Ulrika Näsholm from the press department.
The court has now no information on when the official photo of the prince will be published.

This may be true in some countries, but it's not true in Sweden, the parents choose which name will be the child's given name. It can be the first, second, third, fourth or xth name. If it was true that the first name is the name a child was born with, then the three oldest sons of Oscar II would have been Oscar, as all three had it first in their names, but the first was Gustaf, the second Oscar and the third Carl. (Son number four didn't had Oscar anywhere among his names.) There have been several members of the SRF where the given name (or what you refer to as first name) have been the second (or even the fifth and sixth) among the names they have received at birth.

Now I need to find something sweet to eat.

Is this the case with all people in Sweden or just members of the Royal Family?

I know! It's only breakfast time here, and far too early to be thinking of eating that lucious cake, but now it will be on my mind all day.

Didn't realise it was something special to have multiple names and be referred to by another one than the first... in my family (NL, and very much not royal) this happens regularly...

First of all: very happy for the Swedish Royal Family. The arrival of a new baby is truly reason to celebrate. And, although I highly doubt it will reach them: Congratulations, Your Royal Highnesses!

It's quite common in Europe. We even have words to describe the name we are called on a daily basis. Rufname, roepnaam ("call name"), prénom usuel, and, I guess, tilltalsnamn is the Swedish equivalent (Swedish speakers, please correct me, I made an assumption, as I don't speak Swedish).
The "call name" can be the first, second, third, fourth,... given name. We don't use the "first name", "middle name" concept. For example, my grandmother and I both go by our second given name, the other name(s) are only used when dealing with the authorities.

You can't make that comparison. Just because your first name is XX doesn't mean you automatically go by XX. CG's father, Prince Gustaf Adolf, may have been given Gustaf Adolf as his first name(s) but in the family, he always went by Edmund. Gustaf V and Gustaf VI Adolf may have been given Oscar as their first names but that doesn't mean that was their given names, the names they essentially went by.

Heavens. Many in my family are called their entire life by a "nickname". Birth name is only used on official documents. Nothing wrong with this custom

You do see it in "English" culture (for lack of a better word) as well, although it's rare. My grandmother (of a very Scottish ancestry, but from a very Canadian family) has 3 "given" names and has always gone by her second name (which is entertaining at times... Her ID/medical cards/etc all have a different variation of her name on it.

Oh, yes, there are always exceptions. Some people don't like their first name and choose to be known by their middle name, or the family given them a nickname when they're young and they are known by that name, but in general people are known from birth by their first name and they continue to use it because a lot of thought went into choosing that name for them. The second name tends to be a name in honour of a friend or family member and not intended to be the name by which the person is known.

Any name that is not your family name (last) is a 'given' name. Given simply means chosen for you. It doesn't refer to the order of the name. My father has spent his entire life going by his middle name and there is nothing wrong with that. But on legal documents he still signs his first name. I never once said that either king went by Oscar, please point me to where I did. Simply that Oscar was their legal first name. Who knows, new little Oscar may choose to go by Carl or Olof when older.

Yes "tilltalsnamn" is exactly what we call it in Sweden. I for one have three names but the last of these three is my legal name and the one that comes up everywhere- at the doctors, on my debit card, at work etc...

Rhetoric expert Elaine Eksvärd is impressed by Prince Daniel's way of communicating.
Sweden got a new prince. Prince Daniel met Swedish journalists gathered at the press conference after the birth, and answered questions.
Elaine Eksvärd is author and lecturer who specializes in rhetoric and communication. She says that Prince Daniel handled the large press conference very well.
- He's very charming. He was very human, and fun, she says.
Eksvärd thought that Daniel has found his feet and was a bit calmer than the last time.
- It's so much fun that he is still himself.
She is less pleased with how the journalists behaved.
- They broke off when he spoke. I would have liked to hear more about the woman who have primeval force. Instead they asked the questions like that he cut the umbilical cord or what it feels like to be the father of two.
She believes that the way Daniel responds to the press will continue to generate good PR for the court.
- They become human and it is always popular. It will be a high recognition factor and the royal family is not so far away. People like that.
There is a big difference between how the royal family presented births before and how Victoria and Daniel do it now. But Eksvärd doesn't believe that it is a deliberate strategy.
- I believe that they just are like that. They are social geniuses, after all they are on mission all the time in Sweden and abroad. The more you meet, the more you can talk to.
Prince Daniel came in second place when Resumé appointed super communicators last year. Was it deserved?
- Absolutely. He keeps good speeches, he is active and he makes his voice heard.

No, Oscar was first among their given names, but it was not their legal first name according to Swedish name rules, their legal first name was the name their parents choose as the legal name, regardless where that name were among the names given to the child. The Swedish tilltalsnamn is a person's legal name, and it doesn't have to be the first among the names. The little prince have got Oscar as his tilltalsnamn, and that is the name he always will have to use when signing his name on legal documents. If he wants to choose to have Carl or Olof as his "legal name" he will have to send an application to the Swedish Tax Agency (who administers the Swedish Population Register) that he wants to change his tilltalsnamn, the name by which he is known in legal registers here.

Prince Gustaf Adolf's "legal"/tilltalsnamn officially in the Swedish Population Register was Gustaf Adolf, and that he was known within the family (and among friends) as Edmund, which was one of his other given names, doesn't change his tilltalsnamn, but he would have had to sign his name officially as Gustaf Adolf.

Many Swedes have two or three given names (förnamn = first names), and one of those names are their calling name (tilltalsnamn). Usually all given names + surname are written on identity cards and the calling name/legal given name is written in bold. If Gustaf VI Adolf was to have an id-card, his name would have been written as: Oscar Fredrik Wilhelm Olaf Gustaf Adolf.

@Lady Finn - Daniel did do a good job at the hospital press conference. To me it shows that Victoria made a good call in choosing a consort, not only for herself and for Sweden.
