Ouch! Give the wee lass time to grow into it before labelling her a chav!

Does anyone else think of George's mother from Seinfeld immediately after hearing her name?
My first association was with Estelle Getty. "Sophia" on the Golden Girls.

I don't know any Mary in the Bernadotte family, whom do you mean? More likely it's after a future godmother.

Estelle is of French origin and means "star".

It probably has different connotations in Sweden. I was hoping for something more traditional.

Estelle Silvia Ewa Mary
I like Estelle, to me it is a fresh name and very suitable for a little girl.
There are a lot of names I wouldn´t have liked: Josefine, Hedvig, Sibylla...

And it is lovely that they put both Silvia and Ewa to the name.
Maybe we will hear why they chose Mary, later? ´

Alice Trolle-Wachtmeister said that the little Estelle is just like her mother when she was a child.

Is Ewa the Swedish equivalent of Eva? Pardon my ignorance, I am just curious.

I hope someone can translate what the minister said for me, a poor single-language speaker :-( It sounded like he was going into each of the names.

I'd also like a translation of what the King said.

I didn't label her a chav. I simply stated the name has those overtones in the UK. It's a name which would be more likely to be used by those on the lower end of the socio economic spectrum in the UK.

As I said, I'm sure it has different connotations in Sweden.

I think that Mary is in no relation to the Crown Princess of Denmark. Mary is a popular name within the royal circles.

Also only because she bears the name Mary doesn't mean the Princess Mary will be her Godmother. I assume that the Crown Princess (or the Crown Princely Couples) of Denmark and Norway together with Victoria's siblings and Daniel's sister will be chosen as Godparents. I can imagine that Victoria and Daniel save Mary, Mette-Marit and Madeleine to be Godparents of their second child :-)))

HAHA so so far the Princess' namesakes (in regards to the very first name as opposed to second) were born in the range of 1907-1930s. Two of which are no longer alive and two are fictional. Hmmm...

I really wish they would have at least switched Silvia and Estelle in the name order

Princess Estelle
Crown Princess Estelle
Queen Estelle

The last two seem strange to me but I guess I'll get used to it.

Is it not possible that the Mary is a tribute to the most famous Mary of all? Not a Danish princess but the one who gave birth to the baby Jesus in Bethlehem?

Estelle Silvia's father is known by his second name, not as Olof but as Daniel. Maybe they will do that as well when it comes to her "official" name like the Dutch do it, too?

Normally Eva is spelled with v, not w in Sweden.
