It will be HH for the little girl. The courts solicitor confirmed it a few weeks ago.

Would the name of the little girl be announced in the announcement of her birth or later in an other announcement?

The king's solicitor Axel Calissendorff said to Svensk Damtidning, that the child will be a prince or a princess. Because Madeleine is still HRH, the child will also be a HRH.

I think it'll be announced the day after the birth, l
as with Princess Estelle.

OK, then my source was not entirly correct. They wrote the baby would be a HH. But I tend to believe a swedish magazin more than a german one. Because A: German magazines are always writing more (completely ridicoulus) fiction than fact. And because B: the swedish magazines do not have to translate the words of the solicitor and thus they have space for errors. Thanks for that link which corrected my words.

I do not think they will give Mini-Maddie a name that sounds very Swedish, like Astrid or Raghnild.

If you want your kid to have an international upbringing and potential schooling in NY, you should give it an international name.

Also, my bet is on 3 names, as Chris has only 2 so you would not want your kid to outshine the dad.

I would go for Lilian as a first name. Very international and modern. I just cannot foresee if Madeleine's relationship to princess Lilian was so close that she would name Mini-Maddie after her.

As second, third and potential fourth names, my bet is on Eva, Sylvia and Victoria.

I heard from a swedish friend of my parents that Princess Lilian was very close to Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Madeleine, like a grandmother.

I believe the little Princess will be named Lilian.

Lilian would be a nice name, I believe. My mother's name was Lillian. Pretty name that isn't common. I also like the name Christine or Christina.

If the baby is a boy, Christopher or Nicholas.

So it looks that the king has made a decision about this very early. But of course we get the final decision when the child is born. Nothing is certain before that. But it would be odd if the child would't get a title when the king's solicitor has said so.

I was thinking the same thing. I don't see anything wrong with the name Lovisa, I personally find it rather pretty and pleasing to say. I also like "unused" (or names that haven't been used for a while) family names which is why I suggested it.

scooter, I love your suggestion of Lilliana Christina. It sounds elegant and beautiful.

Now we know that Madeleine and Chris are having a girl; here are my suggestions:

Lovisa Magdalena Lillian Charlotta (I'm still sticking with this one)
Amelie Maria Silvia Victoria
Sophie Emma Madeleine Louise
Helena Victoria Silvia Maria
Désirée Sibylla Ingrid Anna


As much as I like traditional names, part of me thinks that Madeleine and Chris might choose a more modern name, so I checked last year's most popular Swedish girl's names (there isn't an update yet) and they are:

1. Alice
2. Elsa
3. Julia
4. Ella
5. Maja
6. Ebba
7. Emma
8. Linnea
9. Molly
10. Alva
11. Wilma
12. Agnes
13. Klara
13. Nellie
15. Isabelle
16. Olivia
17. Alicia
18. Ellen
19. Lily
20. Stella

Out of the list I like Alice, Ella, Emma, Alva, Klara, Olivia, Alicia, Ellen, Lily and Stella.
How about: Alice Josephine Thérčse Alva?

I could totally see them using a popular Swedish name that has a bit of regality to it. Alice is spot on. It's regal, it's popular in Sweden and it was the name of Queen Silvia's mum. I'm pretty sure that is going to be in the combination somewhere. I hope that they will use a name that is suitable with the title of Princess. I mean, I am the biggest fan of Saga, but Princess Saga just sounds like some video game. Same with Tindra (which I believe is quite popular in Sweden as well?), Princess Tindra just sounds off.

Julia, Emma (would Emma Pernald rule that one out?) and Isabelle fit the same criteria.

However, at the same time I could see them go untraditional as well. I would really like Pauline after Christopher's father. That would also honour the French origins of the SRF.

Out of that list I like Ebba Ella Emma as the full name.

To the English speaking ears it sounds like someone reciting the alphabet in Swedish.


P.S. Given all of these -es and -el sounds, Estelle does not seem that far off in modern Swedish naming patterns, does it?

Would it be weird for the little girl to be a Princess if her father doesn't have a title?

King Edward VII of United Kingdom gave the title of Princess and the style of Highness to his granddaughters by his eldest daughter, The Princess Royal. Their father was a Duke.

The Prince of Wales and The Princess Royal are a Prince and Princess since their births (1948 and 1950), but The Duke of Edinburgh only became a Prince of the United Kingdom in 1957.

But I don't think there's a precedence in Sweden.

Lilian Solveig (pronouned Sol-vay) With nickname Lili. Sunshine (Solveig) in the name is for happiness and lightness. Eva has already been used by Victoria but perhaps it should be added to honor the paternal grandmom. She is little discussed, looked so single at the wedding--so alone. She needs to be drawn into the circle. After all, little Lillian could look just like her, depending on genetic roulette.

Solveig is very old-fashioned. My study counsellor is called Solvejg (or among us students, Sunway) and she is nearing 70. It has a lovely meaning though. Eleanor (or Eleonora, like the Swedish Queen Ulrika Eleonora) means "sun ray".

Unless Victoria will use Lilian, I could see Maddie using Lily (on the list of popular names) as a more modern sounding honor to Lilian. And if they want to avoid Eva because of Estelle, Maria for his mother.

Lily Maria Silvia Victoria

or if Lilian is reserved for Vic

Alice Maria Silvia Victoria

godparents:
Victoria
one of Chris' sisters
two friends of the couple (likely male friends to balance the two sisters)

I have no idea. I think she will give the baby 3 names. One of the might be "Lilian" but I don't see it a possible first name. I think she will strike us with an unusual/ unconventional name like Victoria with Estelle :-)
