I was getting worried that after Mary and Fred (my favourite royals) named their twins, the royal forums would start to get boring...but I completely forgot about the rash of newlyweds who will soon be having babies...

I have no idea about gender, so maybe just some names I would like to see used...

Carl Olof
Carl Oscar

After looking around and asking my grandfather about Swedish names ( he was born in Sweden) I'm starting to like Emma Amelia Alexandrina Desiree ( Emma is popular in Sweden) and for a boy Oscar Daniel Johan Axel

What a great news! I believe their baby is a boy: "Karl Gustav Fredrik Christian", perhaps he could use a couple more names following the royal tradition.

I like the name 'Emma'. It works for a young child as well as an adult. And there's no room for any shortened versions either.

I'm not obsessed with royalty...I just think intensely about it.

Considering the controversy over Carl Philip's girlfriend I doubt any girl will be named Sofia or anything similar. There are so many great names among our royals going way back so my guess is for traditional names with royal stories behind them.

I think Oscar would make an excellent name, it's just one of those that you grow into, you know? Perhaps the fact that it is such a popular name now as well as having historical connotations, it will be very likely to be the name if it's a boy? Does anyone know how popular Gustav or Gustaf?

Here are the Swedish top 100 names for 2010:

The names I find the most royal on there are Alice (2nd), Astrid (29th), Lovisa (47th), Hedvig (99th), Oscar (1st), Alexander (5th), Gustav (18th) , Carl (55th) and Wilhelm (71st). (And Ingrid and Josefine, but they're taken.)

You can also look at these lists of all first names given to at least 10 children any year since 1998, and compare whether they're getting more or less popular:

Yes, but the twins are unlikely to inherit the throne, so Mary and Frederik had more leeway with the names.

Victoria's child will become the heir after her, so I believe they'll choose something very traditional.
