What I have learnt, don't know how accurate it is though, is that the names are placed in the order with the shortest one first. It is not the shortest one counted in letters, but syllables. This means that that tilltalsnamnet (the calling name) could be any of the names in the order.

Doesn't Oscar have more syllables than Carl though ? It doesn't look right then.

I agree. I saw that video. I had no idea what he was saying, though the context was clear and we all knew the gist of what he was saying from that. He seemed very confident and in control, but he also seemed to have a good rapport with the press and seemed to have their respect.

It's usually just the order with the best rhythm. That often does means shorter name first though, especially if you just have two names - if Oscar had only had two names, he would probably have been Carl Oscar rather than Oscar Carl, just because it sounds better, at least in Swedish. And his tilltalsnamn could still have been Oscar.

The tilltalsnamn thing applies to Daniel too - it annoys me when I see people write that his REAL name is Olof. Sure, Olof is his first name, but that doesn't mean anything in Sweden. His tilltalsnamn and thus so called "real name" is Daniel, it's just that his parents presumably liked the sound of Olof Daniel better than Daniel Olof.

As an Englishman living in Sweden I find it disconcerting, if not positively rude, that non-Swedes should presume to tell Swedes how they should organise the names of their children. I can give endless examples of Swedish people who use a Christian name which is not their first name - my wife is one such: Kerstin Anita Maria, always called Anita. I can give just as many examples of British people where the same applies - both my parents: Henry Frank, always called Frank, and Alexandra Patricia always called Pat (or Patsy when small). In Prince Oscar's case the important point to note is that immediately after announcing the three Christian names, HM The King added that the Prince would be called Oscar. That might strike non-Swedes as odd and unnecessary. The boy's names are Oscar Carl Olof; why wouldn't he be called Oscar? Because the King might have said that he would be called Carl, or Olof, and to Swedes that would be his "tilltalsnamn".

Thank you. I had imagined it would be fake, but I was a little worried nontheless.

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.

The account on instagram has already taken down the pictures of the baby. Fortunately, the pic disappeared soon after the news spread. Hope other accounts follow suit.

I think that the swedish press and prince Daniel (along with his family) have a genuinely good relationship. He ended the press conference with giving the press credit for not disturbing the family when Estelle was born, and hoped for a repeat this time around. I think they will get it.

I also appreciated that Daniel showed respect and quick thinking when he was asked if they had talked to the king and queen. He replied: "Yes, we have talked to both of our parents". Daniel and Victoria have always been aware that their children have grandparents that are equally important although they have different roles.

Johan T Lindwll writes in Expressen that according to their information, Victoria has planned that the first photo published of Oscar will be taken by Daniel, like he did with Estelle. Many photo agencies have offered their services.
It seems also logical, that Kate Gabor will take official photos of Oscar in the future, like she has taken of Estelle since she was born.

Some funny information, the last born Prince Oscar in Sweden, (the younger brother to Gustaf V), his full name was Oscar Carl August. His son was a "Carl Oscar" but his grandsons name is Oscar Carl Emanuel.
So the use of "Oscar Carl" instead of "Carl Oscar" is not new in the Swedish Royal Family.

I also think that the name combination "Carl Oscar" for such a senior royal would have sounded too much "The Emigrants" by Vilhelm Moberg, one of the most famous "anti-monarchists" ever in Sweden.

This was evident at the Te Deum where Mr. and Mrs. Westling were seated ahead of Princess Christina.

I don't think Victoria and Daniel care at all about other peoples opinions about the names of their children and they shouldn't.
If this is the case then everything is fine . I just remembered those hurtful comments, especially from Lindqvist. Totally, I couldn't imagine Estelle having another name now, she owns it

The Westlings have always appeared to do everything they can to keep as low a profile as possible. IMO they were quite happy with where they were sat, close enough to see everything, a row back to ensure they were not centre of attention (as if that would be possible with Estelle around).

They sat in the second row for Estelle's Te Deum and Christening and so if they or Vic and Dan were unhappy with where they sat something would have been done about it by now.

As for the seating at the chapel for the Te Deum and Estelle's christening, I chalk it up to protocol. The rank of the parents may play a factor in location of services: Leonor & Nicolas had their services at Drottingholm Palace's chapel; Estelle and Oscar had theirs at the chapel in Stockholm Palace. I'm guessing Oscar's christening will be at Stockholm Palace as the heiress apparent's child and Carl Philip & Sofia's baby will be at Drottingholm, the same as it was for Madeleine.

I'm sure Ewa and Olle Westling could have choosed to sit beside Daniel, Victoria and Estelle if they wanted to. But they don't want any form of attention at all so i can easily imagine them request to not sit at the 1:st row.

True that there are a lot more spaces in the Royal Palace in Stockholm than at Drottningholm. It will be interesting to see if Victoria or Carl Philip will have a christening at Drottningholm or if they will (once again for Victoria) choose the Royal Palace Church or any other church in Stockholm.
Madeleine choosed Drottningholm for her wedding party and for the christenings of her children because she wanted to have it where she was born. Before Princess Leonor, no royal child had been christened at Drottningholm.

Or maybe they'll choose to have it at Öland in connection with Victoriadagen. It is surely exciting royal times here in Sweden :)

Not necessarily, the reason why Madeleine have chosen Drottningholm for her wedding feast as well as the christening of her children is that she has several times expressed how important Drottningholm always have been to her. If judging from the fact that Carl Philip and Sofia chose to have their wedding feast at Stockholm castle, Drottningholm doesn't seem to mean as much to them, and it's more likely that the christening of their child(ren) will be in the same church where they got married.

Aw, congratulations to the CP family and welcome to the world little Prince Oscar.
I love his name, but am surprised they went for something traditional as after Estelle I expected them to call him a more surprising name. Sometimes second children of heirs or monarchs also have less traditional names than their older sibling.

I'm looking forward into seeing his first official photos.

Oscar actually isn't that unusual in the SRF, since there have been two Kings with the name (Oscar II also named one of his sons Oscar). I guessed the little prince's name correctly and I think a few other members did too. I do agree that Estelle is kind of unexpected (even though there was a Countess Estelle Bernadotte, but IIRC Princess Estelle wasn't named after her) and that nobody probably guessed it though. I didn't expect Leonore or Nicolas either from Princess Madeleine. It seems that the Swedish royals like to surprise their people! I am intrigued to see what Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia will name their baby.

Oscar has been the name of 10 Bernadotte princes and 2 kings. There's also some counts of Wisborg with the name and one of the sons of Princess Christina is named Oscar so it's fair to say that it's one of, if not the, the most popular names in the family. Added to that there's was also an illegitimate daughter of Oscar I named Oscara.
