Is it the tradition in Sweden to announce the name and godparents right after the baby is born (as in Belgium), after a few days (as in Holland) or only at the christening (as in Denmark)?

Daniel´s sister is now called Anna Westling Söderström, she got re-married last August. According to Daniel´s biography at the royal court website his parents are Ewa Kristina Westling och Olle Gunnar Westling.

I think if a girl Victoria will incorporate her mothers name, if a boy, her father's name, and part of Daniels name.

Another thing the royal court website got wrong , his mother's full name is Anna Kristina EVA Westling, née Westring.

Christina or Carl Oscar/Carl Johan.
And I'd be extremely surprised if CP Frederik of Denmark and CP Haakon of Norway wasn't amongst the godparents.

Many people is guessing that a girl would have Christina as a first name. It´s nice but i´m not sure it would be a first name. It´s not a modern name for new born kids in sweden as a first name. More middle aged ladies has Christina as first name. Same situation with Lilian, Ingrid, Birgitta and Margareta. Desiree is a very uncommon name in Sweden in every ages and very unlikely to be used as a first name.
As a first name i think they will choose a royal name with atleast one historic connection and that also is a modern name today. And then we have for a girl Louise, Lovisa, Sofia, Josefine/Josefina, Anna, Maria for ex. I personally would love the name Eleonora even though it´s not a common name.
For a boy Carl, Gustaf, Johan, Oscar, Fredrik, Magnus, Erik.
I prefer Carl Johan to honour "the father of all the royal bernadottes".

^Eleonora may be an uncommon name but I agree with you that it is beautiful.

For a girl I'm pretty sure of either Margareta or Christina (it would be funny though if she named her kid Christina, then Sweden would have a future Queen Christina and Denmark would have a future King Christian), for a boy I think it will be a little Carl ~something~ like his uncle and grandfather.
I quite like that we have some extra months to guess the name.

I don't think the baby will have Christina as the first name, for that reason exactly. Maybe a younger child, but not this one.

But I don't think their daughter (if it's a girl) will be named Eleonora; Spain will have the Queen with this name (Leonor is a Spanish equivalent of Eleonora), and there are two more European princesses with this name (in Belgium and Netherlands)

Really? I thought Christina was somewhat popular in Sweden, like for instance here in Denmark, I know a lot of girls my age (17) with the name.
I don't really think popularity is that important when naming a future King/Queen though, Christian was not extremely popular in Denmark when our Prince was born, but obviously he was going to be named it because of traditions. But I don't know, what you say seems logical

But then again, we've had like 6-7 months to guess in before the birth and then 2-4 months extra until the christening is just so boring

Christina is a common name in Sweden but not as a 1:st name to new born girls. I also know some younger girls who has Christina as their 1:st name but to the younger generation it is more common as a 2:nd or 3:rd name from a statistical viewpoint.

We haven´t the tradition here in Sweden to name our first born prince either one name or an another like you have in Denmark. That´s a nice tradition i like. But Gustaf has become somewhat of a tradition in the "Bernadotte Dynasty". We have had four first born princes in a row with the name Gustaf. King Gustaf V, King Gustaf VI Adolf, Prince Gustaf Adolf and King Carl XVI Gustaf. The line was broken with Prince Carl Philip.

Ofcourse it is more important what the parents prefer than what is popular but for Victoria it is extremly important that it has a good historic connection and that the people like it. So i think we can expect a name that is not "totally out of date".

But time will tell

For a boy I would like Fredrik to honour a former Swedish dinasty. For a girl Karolina would be lovely. It would remind the last Vasa Princess.

If you by Karolina mean Carola of Wasa, queen of Saxony, she didn't belong to the Wasa dynasty, she belonged to the Holstein-Gottorp dynasty. The Holstein-Gottorp dynasty was related to the Wasa dynasty through a daughter of Karl IX of Sweden and today's Bernadotte dynasty is related to the Holstein-Gottorp dynasty through a daughter of Gustav IV Adolf of Sweden, so both Victoria and Madeleine are as much Wasa princesses as Carola was. The "Prince of Wasa" title her father had was given to him by the Austrian emperor Franz II.

The last princess of the Wasa dynasty was queen Christina of Sweden.

If I could guess princess Marie if denmark's baby's gender correctly then for Victoria it's going to be a BABY GIRL and as for the name IDK.
