Victoria & Daniel's 1st Baby - Guess the Sex, Name and Godparents

With the announcement that Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden are expecting their first child in March of 2012, its time to guess the sex as well as any potential names?

What do you think?



What are Godparents Made of?
Truth and grace, spirit embraced
A hand to guide, a smile of pride
A tender heart, there from the start
Loyal and true, esteemed as few
That's what godparents are made of
Words of praise, true-hearted ways
Faith to bind, a promise through time
Prayers at night, joyful at light
Regarded role, Valued as gold
That's what godparents are made of
Guardian of light, fairness and right
Duty to lead, there in need
Hope and goodwill, values instilled
Affection and love, blessed from above
That's What Godparents are made of


For many, who to choose as a godparent for your child is just as important as picking your future spouse. Crown Princess Victoria has been honored with this role 12 times.

Who will Victoria and Daniel choose to be the godparent of their first born?

I think it would be a Male. Is Daniel Jr. a good name for the baby?

I'm not good on naming babies, but let me share, in my opinion, if it's a boy, the name suitable for him is Carl Victor, and if it's a girl, the name suitable for her is Danielle Victoria

I voted for a boy, because I already said in the announcement thread that Christian really needs a little male back up with all the future crown princesses around him.

Names? Oscar sounds nice. Or Emil. But I don't know how likely those names will be. Maybe it could be a Carl-Something name to keep on to a little tradition. So my guess for the moment would be Carl Olof. Carl from the royal families side, Olof from Daniels side. Because it's Daniels first name he doesn't use.

I think CP Haakon is a sure thing.
Btw, do Swedes share that "annoying" (for the ones who are guessing the name that is) tradition of not telling the name of the baby until the baptism?

No, as far as I know it's just a danish tradition.

The godparents are easy to guess because regardless of the gender it's an heir who will be born. So there will be a whole bunch of current heirs among the godparents. And I'm pretty sure that the scandinavian heirs are among the godparents because they share a very tight friendship. On the other hand I don't think that Madeleine or Carl Philip will be among the godparents. They would be better for later kids who aren't that "important" so they need "important" heir godparents.

Does my last sentence make sense? I know exactly what I want to say but I'm not sure if you get what I mean.

I hope it is a boy only because Christian does need another King, but honestly I enjoy the little girls more then the little boys.
Names...hummmm
Ever since Fred and Mary threw us all for a loop when they names the twins, I am not sure what the name will be but I hope is isn't Olof or Oscar, sorry but I dont like the names very much. I will have to think about this for a while.

As they recently had the anniversary of the Bernadotte dynasty and IMO it seems that during the wedding, Daniel seemed very close/affectionate with Victoria's great uncle, a new little Prince Carl Johan would honor history as well as the last surviving great grandchild of Queen Victoria.

For a female heir, a combination of her aunt's names - Margaretha Birgitta Desiree Christina - in any order would be nice, or in a nod to Daniel's sister - Anna - would also be pretty.

Crown Princes Frederick & Haakon definitely and Mette Marit is a good guess. I figure the heir will have god parents of many of the other heirs to thrones. So throw in Pavlos of Greece, maybe Prince Charle or William, Prince Willem-Alexander, Prince Felipe and Prince Phillipe with Prince Mathilde also a possibility. And maybe the King or Queen of Sweden and her brother or sister.

Victoria is goodmother to alot of royal children so the possibilities are enormous.

I think only parents are to decide.As far as it concerns me,I don't think it's a good choice to make your siblings godparents of a child,as they are closest relatives and definitely they will have anyway very important role in the eyes of their future nephews/nieces.

Definitely Haakon, Frederik as they are very close with Victoria. Maybe WA as well. Especially since Beatrix is Victoria's is her goddaughter. And Mette Marit.

Charles and William I don't think so.

My predictions for Godparents

I am soo happy Crown Princess Victoria is pregnant. I had a feeling she was as she has been wearing loose clothing recently.

I believe they will choose Crown Prince Frederik and Haakon definately. Then possibly Crown Princess Mary and Mette-Marit, along with maybe Princess Maxima or Mathilde and maybe Pavlos. I love to have either the Duke or Duchess of Cambridge asked but I am not optimistic they will be as the Scandanavians are a tight group and the British royals dont really socialise with any others royals beside the Greeks.

I always like names with a meaning-maybe from a relative they appreciate a lot, a historical pesron,a name from a book or national legend would be nice:-)
I think the baby will have more than one name,probably a grandparent name in the middle....I am so excited,now finally people will stop gossiping about Victorias belly all the time *lol* I just hope it will be healthy and grow to be a smart,responsible,kind person later!
