This is why I find the name Ivalo strange: Ivalo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia For me it is the same as if the child had a name like Copenhagen or Helsinki. I do understand why they wanted to include those names in there, Minik and Ivalo. Just sounds weird to me regardless, being Finnish.

I now learn that Minik means "the one who is thirsty for breastmilk"
And Ivalo means, among other things, "little sister" or "butterfly".

Vincent is a "handsome" name - Prince Vincent - imagine him when he is older - in his 20's for example - it would suit him more then.

Josefine - an old-fashioned name - and I am sure it will grow on us as her personality develops

Prince Vincent Frederik Minik Alexander is an adorable name, Vincent was very unexpected & I guess that was why Erik Norman Svendsen said that we'd be surprised. I'm happy to see Alexander there, such a beautiful name.
Princess Josephine Sophia Ivalo Mathilda is an incredibly beautiful name. I'd kinda expected Josephine & I think it fits the little princess very well :) I'm extremely psyched to see Sophia & Mathilda there (I really believed we'd get a Princess Mathilda).
Minik & Ivalo are such beautiful names & it's such a big honor to give them Greenlandic names. Especially Ivalo is an amazing name IMO.
Prince Christian & Princess Isabella were adorable, they were so affectionate around their younger siblings, it was so cute.
Crown Princess Mary was beautiful (as always) & Crown Prince Frederik looked so proud.
It was nice to see that Crown Prince Felipe is a godfather although he wasn't present.

I now learn that Minik means "the one who is thirsty for breastmilk"
And Ivalo means, among other things, "little sister" or "butterfly".
But that´s not true...

According to links from Madeleine, then this is the meaning:
Links from "Our Madeleine" 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.

The Crown Princely Couple would gave them more beautiful names, I think.

You'll see ships like that in most Danish lutheran churches.
The ship symbolize the journey through life - so it has nothing to do with this being a naval church.
Actually, the ship symbolizes the passage in the Bible where Jesus says "I will make you fishers of men." Lovely.

Were there previous Danish royals or ancestors named Josephine and Vincent? I can think of the Empress Josephine and her granddaughter who became Queen of Sweden, and they have descendants named after them. Any ideas about a Vincent?

Doesn't matter that much to me. I like that they selected Greenlandic names, whether the meaning is a reference to the hunter culture or more a sort of loving nicknames for children isn't that important to me.

Is there a video of the entire ceremony? The YouTube video is great but it's only about 10 minutes.

What others royals were present? Besides the Danish royals? Any of the Swedish or Norwegian royals attend?

Wow! The Babies are adorable! Princess Mary looks BEAUTIFUL! Prince Christian looks so dapper, Princess Isabella looks like a little doll. I think it's nice that Mary has worn the same facinator for all three christianings. Kind of links them all together! And she's wearing the same brooch she wore for Christians event.
