Exactly my thought when I saw "Mary" was included. I guess this hopeful fact can make up for the name Estelle!
Does anyone else think of George's mother from Seinfeld immediately after hearing her name?

The name is in use since the 16. century and means "beautiful star". On becoming queen she can always choose Silvia as her regal name.

Estelle is probably after Estelle Romaine Manville, the wife of Folke Bernadotte, who was the godfather of king Carl Gustav. The name is really a surprise, but I'm was correct by guessing her dukedom, Östergötland, my home province.

I think the Marshal of the Realm is explaining the origin of the name.

Or Mary. Has there been queens Mary or other queens Silvia (not counting the Cp's mother) in the SRF?

Is Estelle even a popular girl's name currently in Sweden?

It reminds me of Estelle, Joey's agent in friends, and to me it sounds not so nice, maybe just due to this association. But, it's her name, and when we start to associate it with her, it will probably proof to suite her very well.

Not that it matters, but in the UK Estelle is the kind of name you could imagine a barmaid having. It's a touch chavish in my opinion.

Then again, all that matters is that the parents like it.
