Is the name Dagmar out now in the 21st century or does it pop up occasionally? Also any info on Andrews name? His family usually have boring repetitive names, but his is a fuscia crayon in a box of yellow ones.

Old-ish names has been trending in Denmark for the last couple of years, I know a lot of little Dagmars, Ingrids, and Holgers (I even know an Olga!). I don't know about the rest of the world though

To become Christened in the Roman Catholic Church, the name traditionally is supposed to include a saint name, as preferred by the church.

In the Orthodox tradition, the child receives the name of the saint whose day is closest to the child's birthday. Of course today that custom is honored by giving a child a Baptismal name, which is basically a name that the child goes by when receiving Communion, and any other church sacrament.

Prince Andrew's name comes from his paternal grandfather, Prince Andrew of Greece.

She most definitely was not. There were many other royals with the name before her, including:
- Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld (Queen Victoria's mother), born 1786.
- Princess Victoire of France, Fille de France (daughter of Louis XV and Maria Leszczynska), born in 1733.
- Victoria of Valois (daughter of Henry II and Catherine Medici), born in 1556.

Incidentally, Victoria wasn't even the Queen's first name; it was Alexandrina (in honour of the Russian Tsar). Initially, it was assumed the young Queen would reign under her first given name, however she chose her middle name - Victoria - as her regnal name.

No, there were Victoria of Valois, daughter of Henry II and Catherine of Medici, born in 1556: Victoria of Valois - Wikipedia
Princess Victoire of France, daughter of Louis XV and Marie Leszczyńska (1733-1799): Princess Victoire of France - Wikipedia
An ever earlier Victoria was Victoria, ruler of the Gallic Empire in the late third centrury AD: Victoria (Gallic Empire) - Wikipedia

An other royal Victoria, Duchess Maria Anna Victoria of Bavaria - Wikipedia , (1660-1690) daughter-in-law of Louix XIV of France, grandmother of Louis XV of France and mother of Philip V of Spain.

Queen Victoria was the first woman to carry the name Victoria in England. There had been other royal Victorias, but not in England.

Was she called Victoria or a nickname for Victoria, or was she called Alexandrina or a nickname for Alexandrina?

When she was younger, Queen Victoria's nickname was Drina (diminutive from Alexandrina). In her adult years, she was mostly called just Victoria.

It's true that queen Victoria was the first royal woman with the name Victoria in England, but I doubt that she was the first woman ever in England with then name Victoria.

Given its origin, the first woman in Britain with the name Victoria may have lived in Roman times. Just a guess on my part.

George VI wanted to name Margaret Anne, but his father didn't like the name. So when the Queen and Philip had a daughter, he had passed away by that time, so that's the name they gave her. As for the other three names:

Elizabeth: Her mother and grandmother
Alice: One of Victoria's daughters; also Philip's mother
Louise: Another of Victoria's daughters; the female form of Louis Mountbatten

Indeed,Louis XVI 's aunt was Princess Victoire of France,I believe she was the only French royal to use the French version of Victoria.

Archduke Imre of Austria is also a Prince of Hungary. Imre is a Hungarian first name. Archduke Geza, born 1940 and Archduke Istvan, born 1961 have Hungarian first names. Archduke Joseph Arpad was born in 1933. Arpad is a Hungarian name.

If Queen Margrethe II and Prince Henrik had followed the tradition of using Christian, Frederik, Christian etc. for the firstborn sons, Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark was supposed to be named Christian. However, to honour QMII's beloved father and to even out the names (Christian has always been a number higher than Frederik), he was named Frederik (and apparently, it moved Frederik IX very deeply that his oldest daughter named her oldest son after him).

We should also remember that Queen Margarethe has a cousin, whose name is Christian. Maybe that's also a reason why they posponed that name for a later generation.

I don't think that Count Christian of Rosenborg would have prevented her from using Christian if she really wanted to name her son that. The DRF has never been close to the Rosenborg-relatives.

Maybe so, but they obviously thought it was time for a new Fredrik, while the name Christian had to wait another generation.
