I don't think there is any reason for future Swedish King, if it's a boy, to be named after any Byzantine emperor. Especially since there is a lot of names to go for except the obvious Carl or Gustaf...you still have Oscar, Eugen, Johan, Oluf, Vilhelm, Erik, August or even Lennart. And if the dig in further, even many more.

Ahhh, ok. Are the Swedes close to the Dutch Royal Family? I mean I know W-A and Maxima were at Victoria and Daniel's wedding, but are you sure it wasn't just protocol, considering the event was a state occasion? Then again, Victoria is godmother to Amalia so...perhaps.

I think Frederik and Haakon are more likely to be godfathers than W-A is, since Victoria is very close to both of them.

Queen Beatrix is also Victoria's godmother and apparently Victoria is close to both W-A and Maxima.

You're right, I meant Olof all the time, since it's also Daniel's name.

I think giving the circumstances of her marriage to a commoner they should make the second in line to the throne have names from the father's family. It shows his strength in the family that he will take the trip to the United States by himself. Lets make the new heir show that strength by giving it a name from Daniel's family. King Olav Daniel 1 would be nice for a male heir.

My guess is a boy, who is called Gustaf Fredrik Oscar Olle.

My guess for a girls name is:
Lovisa Margareta Ewa Silvia

These names are possible to me:
Girls:
Desiree
Josephine/Josefina
Sophia/Sofia (fashionable, very possible for first name )
Louise/Lovisa (fashionable, very possible for first name )
Eugenie (possible middle name)
Marie
Victoria (possible middle name)
Margreta
Birgitta (possible middle name)
Ingeborg (possible middle name)
Alice (fashionable, very possible for first name )
Sibylla (possible middle name)
Christina/Kristina (possible middle name)
Ulrika (possible middle name)
Ewa (possible middle name)
Anna (possible middle name)
Siliva (possible middle name)

A boy could be named:
Oscar (fashionable, very possible for first name )
Carl
Johan
Ludvig (fashionable, very possible for first name )
Eugen
Vilhelm/Wilhelm
Frederik/Fredrik
Gustaf/Gustav (fashionable, very possible for first name )
August
Erik (fashionable, very possible for first name )
Olaf
Sigvard
Bertil
Folke
Hubertus
Olle
Gunnar

For sure ther won't be an Adolf/ph. That would be cruel to the kid and would put the royal family in a bad and strange light.

I believe, a child will not be named: (because these are names of godchildren or nephews)
Amalia
Eleonore
Ingrid (at least for first name)
Christian
Constantin
Alexios/Alexandra
Leopold
Diana
Ian
Madeleine
Vivien
Guilia
Isabella
Hedvig
Vera

I don't know if you can says it's been a tradition in the SRF, but at least the king, princess Victoria and prince Carl Philip have as one of their names the name of one of their godparents. For the king it's Folke (after Folke Bernadotte), for Victoria it's Désirée (after her aunt princess Désirée) and for Carl Philip it's Bertil (after prince Bertil). It will be interesting to see if Victoria and Daniel will follow this "tradition".

i want them to surprise us with a name that we never guessed, but as the baby will be their first born and future King/Queen of Sweden, i guess they will go for traditional, if it was second child maybe more like their taste.
the other crown princes gave their first-born a name with tradition and lots of meaning. Christian is named after the Tradition of naming King's Christian (or Frederik), Ingrid has such a royal Queen name, Leonor's name has a big history behind on Spain and Portugal and fits perfectly on a future Queen, Amalia also has great meaning and tradition, etc...

im sure they will not name the baby with a ramdom name!

I agree, Alexander doesn't seem too Scandinavian for me. If it was a family name, I guess I could see using it.

Alexander/Alexandre haven't been used in the SRF, the only connection I can find is the paternal grandfather of queen Joséphine, Alexandre de Beauharnais, Alexandre de Beauharnais - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia the first husband of empress Joséphine of France.

I think Carl Oscar for a boy is cute, I'm pretty sure it'll be a Carl ______ or at least a 'double name' if it's a boy. Johan is a cute name too.
I'm more troubled with girl names, I'm thinking maybe Louise/Lovisa, Christina or Désirée.

Daniela if it's a girl and Daniel if it's a boy. I like both names. My guess is that the baby will be a girl.

A name that's pretty, sounds classical and isn't overused would be good names.

If it's a boy, I'm hoping for a name that a King hasn't had in centuries, especially Erik. But Bjorn or Jacob or something might be nice too.

I don't care if the baby is a boy or girl, as long as it's healthy plus I am always wrong when it comes to guessing the sex of babies

Regarding the name, for a boy I'm not too fond of Carl, Gustav, Oskar, Johan or the like. I have just been looking through the list of kings in Sweden and they haven't been very creative with their kings' names I would like Erik, Frederik, Olof or Victor though.

As for a girl, I'm less picky, I only wouldn't like Ulrike/a. But there are so many beautiful female names in the SRF, I'm sure they will find something nice I would love a little Lovisa, Christina or even Ewa.

as its a first born, i dont care if its a boy or girl as long as the baby is healthy. but if i had to choose i would choose for it to be a girl, but sincerely, i suspect they will have a boy.

i only want the baby to have a name that no other royal (currently alive) have. Desiree is a nice name, i also like Christina, but we have the Infanta of Spain already. i hate confusion when comes to people sharing the same names.
Johan and Erik for a boy are my favourites^^

CP Victoria is very traditional and protective of the royal heritage so I believe we will see a traditional swedish royal name. At least I hope so.

Same here.

As for the name, I'm still rooting for Lovisa for a girl and Oscar for a boy. But honestly if they choose anything from Victoria's family tree, they can't go wrong. If we left out Adolf of course, and little Carl Gustaf would be a bit too much for my taste too, but the rest is okay.
