Makes me remember Josefa (the Brazilian version of the name) which here is an old fashion name, not in a good way, more in a Gertrude kind of way.
I believe I prefer Vincent more because I 've always like the name Vince.
Just for clarification the brazilan version of the name isn't Josefa but Josefina.

Straight from the horses mouth, so to speak. There can be no mistakes on the names or the spelling.

Many people guessed Josephine/Josefine. It was one of the most-guessed names.

Vincent - Total surprise, but I like it.
Frederik - Not much surprise there.
Minik - Total surprise. Nice with a greenlandish connection, but apparently it means earwax or congealed fat..?
Alexander - Not a big surprise either. I love it.

Josephine - Was one of the names I had considered. Like it.
Sophia - Sofia was one of my guesses. Love it.
Ivalo - Big surprise. Apparently mean sinew..?
Mathilda - Matilda was one of my guesses. Love it.

Only the guests walking from Amaliehaven to Amalienborg - and clips of what went on at the church and when they posed outside Amalienborg.

Links from about the greenlandic names:

Minik
Minik (Minik)
Girls and boys name originally from Avanersuaq/Thule. The name has since spread to the rest of Greenland.

Meaning: Samuel Kleinschmidt defines the word minik in his Greenlandic dictionary (Den grønlandske ordbog fra 1871 p. 211), that minik is "1) Blubber, which has become a viscous glue-like substance (of which a thin layer has been exposed to the action of the air, fex. outside, or on the rim of, a blubber vessel); 2) earwax.)"

According to Jonathan Petersen’s ’ordbogêraĸ’ from 1951 p. 101 the word minik means ’hardened layer of fat’.

Kleinschmidt's next entry is: 'minippaa or minitserpaa, pastes the seams of the boat with minik.'

The name Minik might derive from these definitions. A significant portion of Greenlandic names have their origin from the daily life, some of them dealing with the household and its tools, as well as hunting life and its equipment. Minik might belong to this category, however a mainstream interpretation is Kleinscmidt's no. 2 definition.

Minik might also belong under the cathegory of babbling names, which is quite common in Greenlandic names. Minik could derive from the diminutive ending –mineq (inumineq: little piece of man fex.), with the ending remaining. (It would be the same as the German diminutive in Gretchen, where the name Gretel has been omitted in favor of -chen.) Several diminutive endings have found their way into the approved names list, names such as: -nguujuk, -nguaq, -kuluk, which all bear the meaning´dear little one’. Due to cooing with babies and constant use, consonants often weaken. A good example is the girls' name Natuk, which is believed to be a babbling form of inequnartoq (cute and sweet), with the following process: unoqunartoq -> uukunattuk -> nattuk -> natuk). Thus mineq can become minik.

The name is short and easy to pronounce, and this might be the reason why it is so popular. Also the fact that several books were published about the controversy concerning the boy Minik, who in 1897 was brought with his family to New York by Robert E. Peary, might have had an impact on the popularity of the name. According to statistics, only a handful of people (10 persons) bore the name Minik in the 50s, 60s and the 70s. But after the books were published, there was a marked increase of boys being named Minik, 57 persons in the 80s and 84 persons during the 90s.

Number of name bearers: Minik 152 (72 in DK), totalling 224, of which only 4 were girls.



and

Ivalo
The CPC has chosen the old spelling for Ivalo :)
Ivalu (Ivalo)
Girls name originally from the Thule region.

Meaning: sinew.

Number of bearers: Ivalu 128. Ivalo 103.
