I love the name!!!

It's different than a usual royal name but has history behind it too.

Badly stated on my part. I meant labelling her with the connotation of a Chav Barmaid. I just about fell off my chair laughing. It's almost as bad as the connection to the Golden Girls . . . . . .

Yes that is also my guess.
As it is the way for all Belgian princes and princesses. They all have the name Marie/Maria in there name.

In that case her name should have been Maria in Swedish, not Mary.

Lutherans don't traditionally have the same naming as the Catholic church - including Mary or Maria in the name.

According to Alice Trolle-Wachtmeister, the little princess is an image of Victoria when she was a baby.
"She has the same hair, nose and eyes"

I think I will get used to the name.

I never saw Estelle coming, but after some 20 minutes since the announcement, it already feels better. :)

Did ANYONE see Estelle coming?
We will need some getting used to, but if the parents like it that we probably should just accept it.

Oh I think it's a lovely name, an predicted if a girl, Victoria would honor her mother by including Slivia in the child's name! Estelle sounds elegant and very lady-like to me. Also, I like that Ewa was selected to honor Daniel's mother. Such a lovely combination, but I am curious as to where Mary comes from, any ideas?

Victoria has her godmother -- Desiree (on my phone so can't do the characters) -- in her name so I think we can guess that the princess has a future godmother's name in hers as well. Since Ewa and Silvia are clearly for the little princess' grandmothers, that leaves Mary and Estelle.
The Mary doesn't have to mean CP Mary of Denmark but I think it's likely in honour of a godmother

I wouldn't be surprised if two of her godparents will be crown princess Mary of Denmark and crown prince Hakon of Norway, as the latest duke of Östergötland was the younger brother of crown princess Märtha of Norway.

The Kungahuset Facebook page uses "w". Hopefully we'll get the correct name on the royal website as well soon.
