Although Carl Gustaf has named none of his children after his parent sone of Victoria's name is Alice which was also one of Sibylla's names and one of Carl Philip's names is Edmund which was among his fathers names.

Indeed, I noticed that too, Alice is one of Sibylla's names (Sibylla Calma Maria Alice Bathildis Feodora).

My feeling is she will have a girl (but I'm not really sure this time):

Louise, Desiree or Lilian (I think Lilian will be a middle name).

If she has a boy:

Erik, Olaf or Oscar.

I have never heard Princess Sibylla referred to as conceited and aloof. Unfortunately for her, there was a very strong anti german sentiment after WWII. She never learned to speak swedish very well (not sure if she spoke it at all) and together with her being german she was disliked. I have not read the book that was published recently about her but it woudl be very interesting to learn more. I do have lots of empathy for her. One of her daughters mentioned some time back that all of Sibylla's pregnancies were difficult and of course when she finally had a boy, she became a widow very shortly after. All that and living in a country that was not accepting toward her must have been very lonesome and difficult.

Princess Marie also wore purple on the balcony at QMII's jubilee and she had a baby girl, so it wouldn't surprise me if Victoria is having a boy seeing as she's worn a lot of "boy colours".

I'm still hoping for a Princess Astrid, but I know that's probably not the case

Oh I would love it if the new princess is called Alexandrine! It's a rare yet very regal name! So, Alexandrine Victoria Silvia Ingrid or something like that.

For some reason Louise just came into my head. After Queen Louise, the second wife of King Gustaf VI Adolf.

Although I am hoping for Ulrica or even some reeeaaallly old Swedish royal name like Sigrid. And Astrid would be great too. Excited!

I voted for a girl, but it would have been nice for them to have a boy. I love the name Desiree or Astrid.

Don't worry, they are still young and have time to have also a boy.
