The Princesses have eight names together, so it shouldn't have been very difficult to squeeze in Sibylla there, even though the King's niece is named Sybilla.
He didn't choose Gustaf as one of his son's names either, and that was the name of his father, grandfather and great-grandfather as well as being his own name. Princess Christina's son is named Gustaf, and the King and Queen chose the more personal Edmund, which was the family's name for the King's father, but still.
Perhaps these names will show up in the next generation.

Oh my god when you look at her pictures with then prince carl gustav she look more like his grandmother she was only 43 and she had all the grey hair and people should look more into her life cause i dont think she was that cold to her children like so many royal women she just could not relate to her children. also the fact that her father was a nazi leaders and she bear four girls before she had a son { another version of alexandra feodorovna } but unlike the tsarina her father was blessed not to have inherit the dreadful disease which could have pass on to her children i wonder how she would react if she had live to see her son marry a commoner since it was with reluctant she accept her sons-in-laws but werent the king 26 and i believe when she died they should arrange a marriage for him with a princess i always like her even tough she wasnot popular

On the other hand, Sibyllas names was "Sibylla Calma Alice Wettin" and Victoria is named "Victoria Ingrid Alice Desirée" - so as you can see, they have "Alice" in common And Queen Silvias mother was called Alice... so I think its a v nice thing to give "Alice" to their first daughter

Did Sibylla and Gustav Adolf speak German or English together? According to Wikipedia, Sibylla had difficulties in learning Swedish. The following quote suggests that she wasn’t eager to discuss in English, either. But after all, her father was a British prince by birth.

In the book “Avoid boring people: Lessons from a Life in Science” Nobel Prize Winner James Watson tells about a dinner related to Nobel festivities in 1962: ”This time I was between the wife of the Swedish prime minister and Sibylla, the wife of the Crown Prince Gustav Adolf, who had died in a 1947 airplane crash when his daughters, the princesses, were still young girls. I found it easier to converse with the prime minister's wife than with Sibylla, whose native language was German. Sibylla ate practically nothing, perhaps imagining her still comely figure metamorphosing into the stereotypical one for royal consorts of the past century.”

Its such a pity that Sibylla did not live long enough to see her son become King.

As I've understood it, Sibylla wasn't that popular. Germans were considered suspicious after WWII, and Sibylla also was considered very aloof, probably because she didn't speak Swedish that well. It was only after Queen Louise passed away in 1965, that she had a few years of a somewhat increased popularity. But she didn't live to see her son become king.

I wonder if we'll ever see a future Princess Sibylla in the future,or maybe the name will not be used again.

Indeed, but it would also have been funny to have a mother of a monarch, who "only" was a princess (and yeah, duchess of Västerbotten). But then again, Netherlands now has gotten their third ex-queen being styled princess.

I guess we'll have to wait and see.

The mother of King Juan Carlos of Spain was also only a Princess/Countess,so Sibylla if she had lived longer,wouldn't be alone

I doubt that a princess will be named Sibylla, at least not as a first name, because what most people in Sweden would associate the name Sibylla to will be fast food: Sibylla (fast food) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The chain was named after princess Sibylla in the 1930:ies.
