If they have a boy, it's almost sure one of his names will be Gustaf or Carl. All the kings had those names, and Oscar too. Let's see what will they choose. As for a girl, i have no idea.

I agree it's very likely that if they've a boy the name will be Carl, Gustaf or Oscar, or a combination of them. For a girl it's much more open, lot of names to choose from.

Maybe they'd name their daughter Madeliene. It's such beautiful name. Too bad they don't have as many to choose from for their son.

I think Carl Olaf would be a good name for a boy, as that way it has some of Daniel's name in it, and Carl Daniel doesn't sound good.

For a girl: Sybilla Margaret Ingrid Silvia Ewa Lillian

For a boy: Oskar Karl Daniel Olaf Adolf Olle Björn


And good for her is, there is no pressure to bear a boy. Thanks to the parliament for put the whole "boys-first" into the garbage

Adolf is not a good name. If they use it, they'd be foolish.

Well, whatever association goes with the name, Adolf, it's still a family name so it might pop up somewhere.

Appart from all the names mentioned for a girl, I think also Alice or Désirée would be an option.

I know, not a minute's reprieve for this couple! My guess is that they'll start trying immediately. Hopefully all goes well.

I'm hoping they wait a couple of years so that Daniel has time to become accustomed to his role, etc.

Should the firstborn be female, I'd like to see the name of any previous queen regnant of Sweden so that she could reign as SomeName II. I am aware that Ulrika Eleonora may be considered "out-dated", but what's wrong with Kristina, Victoria, or Margareta? IMO, Ulrika Eleonora II, Kristina II, Victoria II and Margareta II would all be more interesting than some "original" name which has no historic value or significance.

Victoria's parents didn't wait for their one year anniversary before conceiving a baby. They married in June 1976 and in January 1977 the pregnancy was announced, so why should it be different for Victoria and Daniel?

I also want to say something on the family name thingy... The Swedish Royal Family doesn't use a surname, but as Daniel has one to begin with they had to do something so they added Bernadotte to his full name, making Westling a middle name. It's clear that Bernadotte is considered the surname of the Swedish Royal Family. And as females have succession rights they also have the right to pass on their last name to their children, meaning that Victoria's and Daniel's children will have the right to use "Bernadotte" as their last name if there is ever need for one.

Someone pointed out that some female members of the Swedish Royal Family took on their husband's surname... That's true but there is one big difference: they didn't have succession rights to begin with! Let's take Princess Margaretha as an example: she didn't have succession rights to begin with so when she married a non-noble Swede she became Princess Margarethe, Fru Ambler. This is not the case with Victoria and also for Madeleine, so I wouldn't be surprised if the same sollution is going to aply for Madeleine's future husband.

As for names: let's wait for the announcement of the pregnancy and then discuss names!

If their first born heir is FEMALE = Ulrika Eleonora (homage to the last reigning queen prior to Victoria)

Or if their first born heir is MALE = Erik (to many "Carl's" in that family)

If there are twins, then the first born would be heir to the throne. Since Victoria is in her early 30's, she probably will have her first child before she's 35 years old. That's my guess.

I really can't see anyone royal or not waiting till they are in their 40's to have children. This is why a lot of women who wait too long end up having difficulty having children. There a big difference between having a child in your mid 20's and mid-30's. Since I don't have children, I can't speak for myself. However, some women I know who had children during the different decades said in their 30's, they were tired and it was more physically demanding on their bodies than it was when they were younger. It's also more difficult to become pregnant as a woman ages.

well there's always Johan, Philip, Bertil or Arthur for boy's names. I'd imagine Alice would be, if not the first name for a daughter, then one of her names for Silvia's mother. Then maybe Amalie or Josephine (after Madeleine), Ingrid would probably be a middle name (it seems to be a very popular name for the Scandinavian royal families - Queen Ingrid was very beloved!), and maybe Renate.

That's true, but if memory serves it was a family name before Hitler's rise to power. It more than likely had wonderful connotations but now.....not so much. Parents need to be a little more cognizant of the names they give their kids, and how those kids will be viewed BECAUSE of the names.

While I don't think their child will be teased or picked on or anything like that, people will question the reasoning behind using the name, even if it's historical. I mean, Bertha could be an historical name....but would you really name your daughter that?

Adolph is an old swedish name and sorry, Hitler does not come to mind when a Swede hears that name not anymore than Charles immediately remind us in the US about Manson.

Names go in and out of popularity. Who would have thought Abigail would become popular again?

But while Sweden has no public "we-adore-Charles-Manson"-group, it has a widely known aggressive Neonazi group.
Those and many posters on Flashback would have a great day, if the little heir would be named Adolf.
Further the biggest market for "Royal glory made in Sweden" is Germany and both, the king´s grandfather and the father of the queen were members of the NSDAP.
Diplomacy doesn´t "allow" this name. Not yet. Some "survivors" are still alive - and some of those also live in Sweden.
In other words I´d bet 100.000 SEK this name won´t be chosen.

My bet is on Oscar (very popular at the moment and IMO the couple has a weakness for "mainstream"), Gustaf or Carl + a relatively "new" name in the family, which would though fit Royalty (like Philip in "Carl Philip")

For a girl I´d say Christina/Kristina. It´s one of Ewa Westling´s names, it´s the name of beloved aunt Princess Christina and of a Swedish Queen of course.

I would love it they picked the name Erik for their son (if they have one). It's an old Swedish king name and there hasn't been any king Eriks for a long while. For a girl, I'd love them to pick Kristina.
