Great name for a change but i would've like a more traditional name.
The overall all name is nice but I'm not liking the name Mary included for some reason.

Such a proud father! Congrats to both parents. I quite like the name too. It is different, but, like BeatrixFan, I think it has a regal quality to it. I love the meaning of the name - very nice!

Estelle is very nice in my opinion but it's a huge surprise to many of us. Many had expected a more common "Bernadotte family name" for the first child and then the likely future younger sibling/s having ŕ more surprising name. But if the Crown Princess Couple are happy, i'm happy too The last name Mary and the dukedom Östergötland maybe is a hint that 2 of the godparents are the Crown Princess of Denmark and the Crown Prince of Norway. Mary because of the name and Haakon because the former 2 duke of Östergötland was his great uncle Prince Carl Jr ( later Prince Carl Bernadotte) and Haakons fathers mothers fathers father King Oscar II.

The prime minister told that Estelle has dark hair.

I miss Princess Christina Mrs Magnuson. The word was that she was to attend the Te Deum but it is only her husband Tord Magnuson there.

Beautiful name! I like very much Estelle! But it's unusual for a future queen! All the best!

I am so excited if we see little Estelle on the birthday of her grandfather Carl XVI Gustaf.

I guess it'll grow on me... I'm a bit disappointed though. I was hoping for a more 'royal' name. Is the e in the end silent? I keep pronouncing it with an audible e. The first name is almost exactly my niece's name (another form of that name) so I can't totally hate it but it's not something I'd expect a real princess to have as a name. A Barbie princess maybe. And I hate when people place longer names first followed by shorter names. It just sounds better the other way around. I don't like Ewa, especially with a double u. Mary is okay, just not as the very last name of this combination.

I'm sorry to complain... I'm just a bit surprised they named her that.

He does indeed! You would think he just had a baby or something

Congrats to Victoria and Daniel on the birth of Estelle. Not a particular fan of the name but its not my baby and as long as she is healthy, at the end of the day, that's all matters.

I was hoping for something a more traditional, a link to the past like Astrid, Syblla, Margaret or Ingrid but hey, if Carl Gustaf didn't name his children after his mother why would his daughter feel the same?

But we shouldn't put so much thought in the name process (including myself). With the first child, you can't name her after everyone...and Estelle is a name they like, and she also shares the names of her grandmothers.

New Swedish princess named Estelle: King - Times LIVE

Quote:
"Sweden's newest royal, second in line to the throne after her mother Crown Princess Victoria, has been named Princess Estelle Silvia Ewa Mary, King Carol XVI Gustaf announced Friday.

The princess, the first child for Victoria, 24 and Prince Daniel, 38, was born early Thursday at Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm.

Her first name is Estelle, and then, of course Silvia, and then Ewa and finally Mary," the monarch informed the government at a special cabinet meeting at Stockholm's Royal Palace broadcast live on television."

The king said at the cabinet meeting that they wanted the princess to have a name that is very close to the family and Victoria. He also told about the family meeting with little Estelle yesterday.

I was expecting the name to be something a bit more traditional but as this is what the parents chose I'm ok with it. I'm hoping that CP Mary of Denmark will be one of the godparents. That would be wonderful. When will they be made public and when is the christening going to be?

I guess it will take almost three months to the baptism.
