Potential Names and Godparents for Madeleine and Chris's First Child

I have not a clue or cannot out in a guess for the first name but I definitely think that Lillian will be in there somewhere for sure. Ella is also quite a sweet name so maybe that? I really do not know....I also like the idea of Alice being in the name.

Though after all this time I'm still sticking with Lovisa Magdalena Lillian Charlotta.
HereditaryPrincess, Thank you!!

The sons of the Dutch princess Margriet are princes while her husband has no title, the ties between the Dutch and Swedish royal families are close.

Gossip magazine Se & Hör "knows" the name, on it's cover:
Four weeks remaining for Madde
That's why the baby will be called Cassandra

Just out of interest, were Se & Hor or any of the other Swedish gossip magazines speculating on Estelle's name before she was born?

Well Se & Hor is a gossip magazine, and gossip magazines usually just speculate and spread rumours, so don't worry, it may not be true.

Agreed. Unless Se & Hor have been told by Madeleine and Chris themselves, then I can't think how they know the name of their baby girl. On a slightly different note, I have nothing against the name Cassandra, but I hope it's just a rumour as I'm really hoping for a little Lovisa or Alice! Cassandra is also the last name I expected Madeleine and Chris to choose -- in fact, I didn't think about it. It doesn't sound very Swedish either. (But I guess since Madeleine and Chris are lower down in the line of succession, it doesn't really matter how Swedish-sounding the little one's name is.)

It is possible that Chris and Madeleine may have not even chosen a name yet, they may have some names picked out, however may still have to make their final decision. I am sure they will choose a nice name.

Why not Lilian ??? I think it would be a lovely choice in memory of Princess Lilian. The name is beautiful.

I'm pretty confident they will name her Lilian. The late Princess Lilian was a greatly beloved grandmotherly figure for Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Madeleine.

The only reason I don't see them using Lilian IMO, is if Victoria wishes to use it for another daughter. Id be shocked if neither used it, considering how close they were to Lilian before she died.

I think Madeleine was very very close to Lilian (perhaps closer than Victoria was) so I guess Lilian will be somewhere in the baby's name.. Maybe not her 1st but as a middle name

According to the swedish royal experts and swedish press, Victoria was the closest to Lilian after queen Silvia and Carl Philip was very close to prince Bertil (he was CP's godfather) and therefore to Lilian too. Some experts have said that Madeleine was the one of the siblings who had the most distant relationship to Lilian, but of course she loved her. The swedish press has pointed out many times that Lilian supported Victoria and Daniel right from the beginning. Svensk Damtidning told that long before it was official that Victoria and Daniel were a couple, Lilian had a photo of them at her table. Lilian had told to her friend: "The king doesn't want me to keep it there, but I keep it there anyway".

Because Madeleine sees her mother as her idol, I would expect Silvia as one of the names, and Maria from the O'Neill site and possibly Victoria.

I personally like the name Cassandra.

While I would not normally pay too much attention to a tabloid's announcement, Madde has been known to put personal details out over the internet - Facebook, the due date and gender on the baby registry. So I would not necessarily be surprised if the tabloids picked it up over the internet.

I don't see Desiree or a name in use by any of her close family really. I think she will want something of her own, maybe a nod to her family but not so near, like Estelle. Along with Princess Desiree, her Aunt, I believe she has at least one cousin named Desiree. I could be wrong, but think she will stray away from it.

Lilian Marie Silvia Victoria (the last if Vic is godmother which she likely will be)

Amelie Eva Silvia Lilian

I wouldn't be so certain on Lilian either. As LadyFinn so well said, it's well-known that Victoria was the one who was closest to Lilian and I could easily imagine them using the name for a potential second daughter, but I don't think Madeleine and Christopher will use it - at least not as a first name.

My final guesses will be:
Alice Silvia Pauline (Maria)
Pauline Silvia (Lilian) Maria
Saga Alice Pauline (Maria)
Helene Silvia (Alice) Pauline
Amelie Silvia Eva (Pauline)

And I reckon she will be Duchess of Uppland or Duchess of Medelpad.
