I have no problem with the name 'Estelle' . My question sprung due to the post that I quoted. The person said that she herself didn't think the name was suitable for a monarch, so I just asked out of pure curiosity if the little one could be styled differently, if she so chose. Sorry for the confusion.

Estelle is a beautiful and original name. It means "star". Congratulations for Victoria and Daniel! A new queen will reing in Sweden!

"Silvia" is common in my country and the Queen Silvia is called here as "brazilian queen", because her mother was brazilian. She was born in Germany, but she lived here upon 14 years old in Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo.

I think that are many negative replies about this name. I loved it! It's simple and beautiful. There are many important things in this world to discuss. And all parents choose the name they want to put in their children, they don't?

Surely they are better people than this! It would be very childish to act like that. People have their own opinions and let's not forget many are experiencing a small shock now and will get used to the name later.

I wonder if we will see a bit of the service?

The gentleman on this photo is Bertil Bernadotte, the son of countess Estelle Bernadotte: http://tinyurl.com/7wvjr77 I wonder what he felt when he heard the name of the little princess.

Congrats to the couple! I found this post to be quite informative: The New Future Queen of Sweden’s Name & Title « The Royal Post
Especially interesting that the royal website had a press release up for a few moments with a different name!!

I love the name. Not ordinary, but loved by Victoria and Daniel, and their choice.

Well, I wouldn't name my daughter Estelle but I wouldn't name her Ingrid, Isabella, Josefine, Amalia, Alexia, Ariane, Leonor, Sophia.... either.
It's up to the parents to decide.

And AFAIK there is not really a tradition of names for monarchs in Sweden, especially for female monarchs. It's not like in the DRF where it would really have been a break of tradition if Mary&Frederik named their firstborn other than Christian.

This picture did not come up for me. I'm so interested in this family. How is he related to the King, Victoria...

Thank you for the photos. I love his hand gestures: "I caught a fish thiiiiis big!" Obviously demonstrating the size of the baby, of course.

If you try this link: http://tinyurl.com/7wvjr77

Bertil Bernadotte is the son of Folke Bernadotte, whose father was prince Oscar Bernadotte, a younger brother of king Gustaf V of Sweden, making king Gustaf IV Adolf and Folke Bernadotte cousins and king Carl XVI Gustaf is the grandson of king Gustaf VI Adolf, and also the godson of Folke Bernadotte.

I'm so happy for crown princess Victoria and as of 24.2.12 she is named : Her Royal Highness Estelle Silvia Ewa Mary, Duchess of Östergötland. Could the name Mary refer to a choose of godmother, the crown princess of Denmark perhaps in order to possible return the favor foe being prince Christian of denmark's godmother .

Apparently the name is not as untraditional in the Bernadotte family as some had supposed: The Scandinavian Royals Message Board: Some more Estelle in the Bernadotte family

I wouldn't find it childish at all. Yes, we are all entitled to our own options and yes, 99,99% were for sure not expecting Estelle or Mary among the names, but calling a 1 day old baby "night club queen" is a bit too much in my opinion. There are other ways to say that you don't like specific name or don't find it suitable.

Congratulations to Victoria and Daniel on the birth of little Princess Estelle! I was very surprised at the name, but I have always liked Estella and Stella as names and Estelle sounds very French to me.

I think it is very telling that they didn't use Sibylla or Caroline (the feminne form of Carl/Charles) after the King's recent behaviour

Well a surprise definately. But I am very happy for them. A healthy baby girl who will someday be Queen. Let's wish her a life filled with love and all the happiness in the world. And her name really isn't so bad. I'm sure we will all get used to it in time. :)
