Thanks Yennie. Wow, no "special" treatment for the prince. I would think that it was "well known" who the prince was though.

its common for royals to do military service. As Victoria is crown princess and our future Queen she should have some military education.
I think the name thing is just because of their status, as crown princess Victorias is of higher rank than her brother

And Sweden has compulsory national service for men anyway. (Although they can serve in the fire dept or something similar if they don't want to serve in the armed forces.)

I didn't know who Madeline's second and third names were for, but I always thought Josephine was for her French ancestress, Josephine Boneparte, second wife of Napoleon?

Josephine is actually in honor Josephine Bonaparte's granddaughter.


Quote:
Her fourth name, Josephine, is in honour of her ancestress Josephine of Leuchtenberg (later Queen of Sweden and Norway under the name Josefina) the daughter of Prince Eugene of Bavaria, the son of Napoleon Bonaparte's first wife Joséphine.
I would guess the Therese and the Amelie are just to keep the French theme with her names going; Bernadotte, their surname, is French.

Victoria was also called "Princess" while in regular school while both Carl Philip and Madeleine got called by their first names.

Madeleine's name is very French. It flows beautifully though . I think Victoria's full name (Victoria Ingrid Alice Desiree) isn't as smooth as Madeleine's full name.

Victoria's full name also includes French names: alice, desiree, but Madeleine is a good name, i like its pronounciation in french, more than in english

I think a future prince can be styled as Gustaf Adolf but be called as HKH Prins Gustaf like Victorias great great grandfather King Gustaf V who´s full name was Oscar Gustaf Adolf.

I dont think a boy will be called for example Gustaf Adolf due to the black assosiations whith the name Adolf.
It is sad because it is an old traditional name in the royal house in sweden, not only as Adolf but as Gustaf Adolf and Adolf Fredrik for example.

For Victorias children i am shure that the first one will have traditional name and maybe the fathers/mothers name as he/she will be nr 2 and later nr 1 in the succession.

For an own example Carl Oscar Fredrik Daniel(maybe?) if it is a boy and
as a girl she can be styled as Christina Louise Ingrid Victoria or something like that.
I guess it will be something traditional and a name frome one of the parents.

Off course it can be more than or less than 4 name but most of the royal houses giving their new generations 4 name today.

For the other possible future royal children in sweden for both Victoria and her brother and sister in is an open question but I think it will be at least one or two traditional name even there.

We have already discussed the background of Victorias and Madeleines 4 name and I think everybody know the background of Carl Philips 4 name too, maybe not Philip.

Carl after his father HM The King.

Philip, belive it or not, it is after the duke of edinburgh even if it is a very old royal name in sweden too, then styled as Filip.

Edmund after his grandfather Prince Gustaf Adolf called Edmund (and it was his last name, he had 6 name!)

Bertil after his fabulous and beloved uncle, the duke of halland.

Not 'ber-na-doe' because the 'tte' at the end must be heard. In the correct (French) style it is 'ber-na-dô-ht'

I have no idea - I would love some Swedish help so when I go to Sweden and meet him I don't make a fool of myself :p lol
I believe it is pronunced Korl Filip
