Congrats to Prince Daniel and Princess Victoria on their new arrival. I bet she's beautiful.

Awesomeness.

Yes, you are right!
Now I come to think of it, we should definitely remember to say a prayer of thanks that they did not name her Spiderpig!

You´ve definitely made my day, Esmerelda!

I must be the only one here who actually likes the name Estelle!

Congratulations to the new parents, aunts and uncles, and new grandparents! I bet the King and Queen are very excited.

I agree! I just wished he combed his hair less!! Sometimes they are really too sleek and appear completely slathered in hair gel

According to Aftonbladet and Expressen, the swedish "normal" people like the name very much.

I think Victoria and Daniel chose a lovely name for their daughter. 'Estelle' rings of the 1920s/30s, and sounds very elegant. The other names pay tribute to the the little one's grandmothers, which is such a lovely touch.

I don't dislike the name Estelle but I don't like it for a Queen.

The Royal Court's reaction to Herman Lindqvist's comments:
It is his opinion, he has his taste, I can have an opinion about Herman, but I have not, says the court information officer Bertil Ternert to Expressen.se.

I've noticed in other articles besides the Expressen one - Estelle Silvia Dr Mary??? What's with the "Dr". It's Ewa.

Can she choose to be styled differently when she inherits the throne, and be known as let's say 'Queen Silvia'?

Why would she do that? No one of us knows in what kind of a world people are living about 2060 when Estelle becomes a queen? Estelle can be a very beautiful and dignified name then.

Interesting. But there's a big difference between 6 and 48 hours...

In the end, does it really matter whether the name is fit for a queen or not? If there's a problem with it or turns out she dislikes it herself when she becomes of age, she can always change it. Also, it might be around 50 years before this princess might become a queen. Who knows if monarchy even exists in Sweden then? It is a long time and I wouldn't be surprised if she never became a queen. Of course I wish she did but how am I to know.

I love the meaning of the name. I'm more used to the latin form of it since that can be found in my family. In a way I do think there should be more unique names used but I've sort of been old-fashioned in these things. And I was hoping there would've been a little Astrid, Katarina Lovisa or Ingeborg/Ingegerd...
