Bigraphy of Estelle Bernadotte in Wikipedia:

Estelle Manville - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nice that Victoria and Daniel honoured such a good woman by giving their daughter her name as first. Although it doesn't sound "queenly".

Maybe if it were a boy, they would have named him Folke after Estelle's husband?

I´ve been thinking - did Beatrix sound queenly when she was born? Does Mette-Marit sound queenly, has there been talk in Norway that she must take another name when she is the queen?

Google translate does very funny things. It took me a while to deduce that they translated 'heir to the throne' as 'towering wing'. I believe Queen Silvia was derived as 'Helen Keller' at some point.

Mary Poppins? Right... If they thought about naming their daughter for a "nanny", they could have chosen "Nanny" directly as her first name, for that's the name of Daniel's maternal grandmother....

Of course Beatrix sounds queenly. Whether Mette Marit sounds queenly is beside the point as she married into the royal family and will only be a queen consort. I mean, Charlene is not a queenly name (it makes me think of the Australian soap Neighbours) but it doesn't really matter for her.

It's interesting, though, that Kate uses Catherine officially, partly I'm sure because 'Queen Kate' is not nearly as regal as 'Queen Catherine'.

Not that interesting considering Catherine is her actual name. Unless her name was actually Kate, she wouldn't be Queen Kate.

I don't think Beatrix sounds like the name of a queen at all, but it sure does work for the Queen of the Netherlands. Mette-Marit, Maxima, and Camilla don't sound like queen names either, although Queen Maxima sounds fantastic. There is nothing wrong with the name Estelle except people wanted her to have a traditional Swedish name and they didn't get their wish.

Kate could continue to refer to herself as such, but tellingly, uses Catherine all the time now. I'm sure the fact that it's more elegant is part of it.

Beatrix has to be one of the most regal names I know. It's not so much that I wanted a 'traditional' name or an old fashioned name for Victoria's daughter. I just didn't think they'd use such a naff name for a future monarch.

Who knows, maybe Victoria and Daniel are fans of the Grammy winning British rapper and singer of the same name:

After yesterday's thanksgiving service rests kronprinsessparet out at Haga Palace.
Here they receive family, friends and family who would like to congratulate them and princess Estelle.
- Victoria doing well, says the court information officer Bertil Ternert.

Yes, in this article, Silvia is also translated to 'Ms'.

Johan T Lindwall seems slightly obsessed with Daniel's parents. Or it could just be a slow news day.

I wonder how the christening of little Estelle will be. Will it be a big national event like the christening of Prince Christian of Denmark or a small family event like the christening of Infanta Leonor of Spain?

How was it in Victoria's or Carl-Philip's (he was at this point Crown Prince of Sweden) case?

The christenings of Carl Philip, Victoria and Madeleine where are all big Events and took place at the Place Church of the Royal Palace in Stockholm where the Te Deum was held yesterday. So probaly the christening of Estelle will be also take place there.

Well, since Estelle is "only" the daughter of the Crownprincess and not of the King like Victoria was during the time of her baptism it might become a much smaller baptism ceremony.
Besides: After all those strange occurences (announcing on February 2nd the child won´t be born before early March, announcing the birth at 7.00 a.m. where everybody was still asleep, stealing away with the baby through the rear entrance, giving a ridiculous name like they wanted to make clear: "Hey if we will call her Donald Duck then it´s not your business, and besides, we don´t care whether she will be Queen one day...") I sometimes believe they might appear in Jeans and Sneakers and baptism her in Öckelbö....

Doctors can give you a best guess as to birthdate but the babies themselves arrive when they are ready. As for announcing it at 7AM, well no announcement was really needed, the hospital was surrounded by media waiting for the news and filling empty airtime talking amongst themselves. Parents get to choose their own childrens names, they dont have to rely on government committees or public opinion polls for name selection. Estelle is also a name that is not unknown in the Bernadotte family, including a current grand niece of the King.

The name Estelle is already starting to grow on me, I think when they release cute pictures of her and we see Victoria and Daniel lovingly with their daughter, I will be in love with her no matter what

But what really bothers me is the combination of all four names. There's French, Latin, Polish/Swedish and English, they just don't go well together IMO. Also the rhythm is very strange to my ears, a long first name and the others all with two syllables...

But oh well this was my last post about the names, the decision has been made by Victoria and Daniel and that's good

It will be a national event like the danish christenings. It will likely take place in the royal palace church in about 2 or 3 months. It will be televised in the swedish television and there will guests from most of the european royal houses.
I'm already looking forward to it :)
