I know it goes against tradition but I hope the little prince gets (or already has) his own name, not Christian.

How do you pronounce Knud?

Knud is pronnoused K as in king NU as in nude and D as very soft d as you will pronnounse the.
I dont think Knud is a good name. It is so oldfashioned and in my head not a pretty name
I still vote for Christoffer then he will be king Christoffer 4.

I think even princes only get four names! And it sounds a bit too German for the Danes taste. Maybe - Erik Gustav Frederik John.
You must incorporate his father and maternal grandfather's names somewhere!

well; I like the name Christian very much.
I could imagine that they'll chose that name, especially because it's tradition in denmark to call the future kings Christian or Frederik.
And I cannot belive that the little prince will get the same name as his father.

I think they will keep with Christian as the first name. I also think they will also use shorter more internationalised Danish names as first names for future children.

eg Erik, Johan (John), Henrik, Hans

I think the new Prince will be:
Christian Frederik Henrik Johan

Ok, I'm NOT critisizing anyone! You have all been very imaginative here in thinking of names, but HOW could we burden this poor child with 8-10 names!
Having more than 4 names may give a whole new meaning to a child learning to say and spell their own name, let alone remember it!:)

It's only in the last two/three generations that the Danish royals have stuck to 4 names for their children. So, that's not set in stone. But more than 4 names might be a bit impractical.
