Thanks. I also thought that the name "Baudouin" has a similarity to the name "Baldwin".

The name "Baudouin" in Dutch is "Boudewijn". How "Boudewijn" is pronounced? How do the Dutch pronounce the alphabet "J"?

Metah-MARit, that's how it sounded to me. And Haakon is HOkahn. Are these names common in Norway? Sorry if it has been asked already.

Meraude stated earlier in this thread, that there are 24 women in Norway, who have "Mette-Marit" as their given name. I don't know about "Haakon".

There are 2366 men with first name Haakon. And as stated before, 24 Mette-Marit's. But then there are 9789 women with Mette as their first name and 27368 Marit's, the name seems to be hugely popular in the 50's.

Does Prince Rainier's name pronounced as "Ray-Nee-Ay" in French? In English, the pronounciation is much different, the name Rainier in English is pronounced as "Ray-Nee-Er".

Guillaume is pronounced "Giyom".
("G" as in "Gordon", "i" as in "Isabel", "y" as in "York", "o" as in "Orlando" and "m" as in "Mary").
