IIRC, people baptized in the Greek Orthodox Church do not get middle names. It is the same in the Russian Orthodox church, they get their father's first name as their middle name.

My favorite names are

Isabella Henrietta Ingrid Margrethe
Konstantin-Alexios

That's true. And traditionally Greek children (and Russian) are only given one name, not two. So the Greek royal children are exceptions to the rule.

It's a tradition for us to give to the 1st baby the name of the paternal grandfather or grandmother(if she's a girl) and to the 2nd baby the name of its maternal grandfather/mother.Usually a Greek family has 2 children.If there are more,then the couple is free to choose whatever they want.In the previous post I've read really bad comments about the ancient greek names and about how awful they sound.Well,I guess that's because the people who posted them haven't been raised as Greeks.All those names sound really poetic to us:Olympia,Achilleas,Odysseus etc.So do the Byzantine-christian ones:Andreas,Constantine,Alexios,Maria,Stavros,Anna.Personally,I like them all.And the combinations are perfect.From the Danish names I would choose:Ingrid,Margrethe,Felix and Alex(andra).

My brother was christened with a middle name as will be my twin boys....
I really like the names Odysseus and Olympia (which happens to be my name as well!)
I also really love the name Ana-Maria and Arrieta

Isabella and Ingrid :)

And Achileas, Odysseas (for their historical context!) Christian, Nikolai and Felix!

none of the combinations sounds perfekt to me, but there are some names i really like:
Isabella
Anne-Marie
Amelia
Alexander
Frederik

Friedrich
Oscar


IMO that's the worst combi: Odysseas Kimon and Valdemar is also awful.

It's Isabella Henrietta Ingrid Margrethe.
I'm danish and see pictures af Princess Isabella every day.
Shes just so cute, and she looks like her father i think, så I
think it is Isabella that is the most cutest .
Christians name is also very cute, but Isabellas face is just so
wonderful sweet. (:

Long live the danish royal family (:

I like the name Arrieta. It's easy to say and remember for any language, but I think in Spanish, they would add the drum roll of the r's.

I don't necessarily like the name Isabella for a Danish princess. In fact, I don't like the name Isabella for any princess except for possibly a Spanish one. Isabella sounds like it has Spanish (and maybe Italian?) origins. Have the crown prince couple ever said why they chose this name?

I think Mary chose this name because she liked it. And if you think of a nickname for Isabella, it would be Izzy, and isn't the crown prince couple's dog named Ziggy? I think Mary just likes the sound of it.

I think that Frederick and Mary´s daughter is called Isabella for a queen of Denmark, born Infanta of Spain, isn´t it? (I think that she was a Catholics Kings´granddaughter)

My favourite name is Maria-Olimpia -perfect Greek-Spanish combination-. I love it.

I don't know whether Isabella is named after this former Queen of Denmark, but it is true we once had a Queen named Isabelle though in Denmark she was called Elisabeth.

She was Isabella of Austria, Archduchess of Austria, Infanta of Castile and Princess of Burgundy by birth and became Queen of Denmark, Sweden and Norway by her marriage to King Christian II in August 1515. She was the daughter of Philip I of Spain and Joanna of Castile and the sister of Emperor Charles V. She was born July 1501 and died January 1526.

In 1523 King Christian II was deposed by disloyal noblemen. King Christian fled to the Netherlands. She left Denmark with her husband and their three children. She died at Ghent at just twenty-four years of age.

I like Nikolai William Alexander Frederik. I think there is a certain ring to it, or it might just be that I like the name Nikolai.
