I don't see why whether or not everyone likes her name or things it's non-Swedish or whatever. The only thing I see of any real importance is the parent's happiness. A person's name doesn't really define them, it doesn't make them any less human. She is going to grow up with this name and a name, what's in it I don't think should define who this child will become. There will be more important things than her name. French, Swedish, German whatever, all I see is a little girl who yes is born royal yet is also someone who one day will be shaped by her experiences and the things she does and no so much judge by what her name is.

What really matter is the healthy, beautiful baby and of course the blessing for the family! Congrats to Sweden!

Absolutely! May she have a long, healthy life! There is no doubt that she will be well loved.

Leave it to a low class TV employee to be that malicious to down grade a beautiful event. One must wonder what type of mother gave birth to that spiteful TV mutation.

I don't think Silvia's smile could get any wider while Daniel is looking mighty pleased indeed. Thank you for the photo.

I think the choice of Estelle is unusual. However, it is a beautiful name and I'm sure Victoria and Daniel's little star will be a trendsetter in ushering in a new popularity for old-fashioned names.

Prince Carl Philip looks pretty pleased, too.

Yes, C-P is chipper, too, but Grandad was caught in a serious moment!

The King is always serious, though.

Daniel's parents were 'visibly moved' by the Te Deum.

So happy for the couple! I keep picturing their beautiful wedding in my mind...can't believe it's been a year and a half. Victoria and Daniel must be ecstatic. Can't wait to see pictures of the little princess.

How wonderful it is that this new family did not name their child a stupid name. Old fashioned tho it may be, it is still a nice name. Hopefully, more names like this will start to make a come back soon and start a "trend" of sorts. I'm tired of people naming their kids names like "blue ivy" and "apple". How can people take you seriously if you have a name tlike this??? I mean, really?

SVD have a PDF file of several articles (more in-depth than the ones I've read online so far) and large pictures related to the Princess' birth.
http://www.svd.se/multimedia/archive..._2_826039a.pdf

It's in Swedish- I guess it'll take some copy and pasting into google translate.

I have a friend who works in medical records. She recently had to process a birth certificate for a baby girl named A'blessin.

In contrast, Estelle is a very lovely and dignified name.

She has had time, i'm surprised that she wasn't there prior to the birth. Knowing her sister was potentially near her due date you would have thought she would have made an effort, clearly not. She didn't enough bother to show up to the naming, or the Te Deum. Shocking.
