Oh, he does, don´t mistake that. I know, second-hand, that he indeed has joking skills.

I think Vincent and Josephine are great names, and also totally unexpected. Josephine is one of my late grandmother's names, and I've always been partial to it. She was Genevieve Josephine, and if I ever have a daughter, she'll be getting one of them.

I also thought that Mary looked amazing -- blue is a great color on her.

in another forum i read that mary looked a little bit sad, i really don't think so, but, she has a post-birth depression maybe?

what i really believe is that mary looked correct and beautiful...

and, how would you feel when the day before the christening, the press is tellin' that your husband is dancing with a blond girl in a discoteque????

(curious thing: it's the same place where the family celebrated the christening that night...)

Did anyone notice if Marie followed along in Danish with the hymns and the prayers during the christening?

I don't think they got a closeup of Princess Marie.

Check youtube's DRFGARDEN to be certain.

Prince Vince??? What were they thinking? His other names are lovely, even Minik has some sort of style about it...but Vincent is so old-fashioned.
What about traditional Danish names? It seems odd to me that they have honoured the Greenland connection but ignored beautiful Danish names.

Here we have a gallery of hats and other head adornments worn during the christening: Billed-Bladet - Kongelige og kendte luftede hattene til tvillingedåben

Helle Reedtz-Thott is a stunner! Even without the...eeh, something on her head. - No, I'm not making fun, I just don't know what such an adornment is called.

Added: Notice picture #10. It looks like she was inspired by an owl. Hornugle in Danish, don't know what that kind of owl is called in English. http://www.google.dk/imgres?imgurl=h...1t:429,r:4,s:0

All the most widely used names right now were more or less considered old-fashioned 10 years ago.

This distinquised elderly gentlemen (Fyns tidligere biskop Vincent Lind er død - fyens.dk - Odense), the former bishop of Funen, died in 2007 at the ripe old age of 82. His name was Vincent Lind.

Vincent is by no means an unknown name in Denmark, it's just not so widely used - but that is bound to change now. And to my ears it is no more foreign-sounding than e.g. the name Alexander which everyone seem to accept.

The nod to Greenland was beautiful and appropriate IMO - just as Queen Margrethe's name Þórhildur was a beautiful nod to Iceland 70 years ago.

Propably because Mary and Fred simply like the names

I'm just guessing here, but I think Alexander is a family name on Mary's side (she has a nephew with the first name of Alexander), Sophia is a DRF name, as is Mathilda, but the latter is also an Australian name (and kind of a nod to the country's famous folk song 'Waltzing Matilda').

Why Alexander, Sophia and Mathilda?
Only the royal couple know their full reasoning though I note:

Alexander - royal connection - Alexandrine etc.; used in both families in the past, current connection to two of Fred's lovely cousins - Alexandra and Alexia; great meaning and an association with two nephews - Nikolai (after his mother) and Alexander Stephens. Alexander adds an attractive/complimentary sound to the whole name as well.

Sophia - great meaning and sound, Sophie, Sophia etc. is featured widely in the history of the royal family, look into the family tree.

Mathilda - is also a Danish royal name. Mathilde of Belgium is a wonderful example of a modern day bearer. The sound of Ivalo Mathilda together is really pretty and the nod to Australia's Watzing Matilda is special.

Not Prince Vince, Prince Vincet European's don't really abbreviate names as much as we do in English speaking countries.

I'm not fond of the name personally but you mentioned it being 'old fashioned'. Well, in a sense it is, but It's not a particularly popular name in Denmark so that in essence makes it a rather unusual and interesting name for the wee Prince to have.

They did 'honour' names that are well established in the Danish culture. Josephine, Mathilda, Frederik and Alxeander.

That Greenland is an autonomous country within the Commonwealth of the Realm (Rigsfællesskabet), it's hardly surprising that they should have chosen Greenlandic names. A rather lovely gesture I thought.
