Like you, I'm an Australian first and foremost and recognise within myself the values and beliefs that are attributed to our way of life.

For anyone to say that Mary was not Australian is very much the innacurate statement because she most certainly was. An Australian of European descent.

First, foremost and above all else
I apologize if I have offended anyone's patriotic feelings here but what I meant was that Mary being Australian doesn't mean she should forget Scotland and her roots. Sure, she can be Australian and surely is but she can also be Scottish.

I myself don't very much identify myself with the part of my country I live in although I have been born here since my family is not from this part of the country originally. For myself I can say that I am Finnish but I recognize my roots which are finnish-swedish-norwegian-danish-polish-something (genealogy hasn't revealed yet). First and foremost I am an Earthling, then an European and then Finnish. And then there's the messier issue of identity inside Finland...

But I'm drifting here from the original subject sorry!

If the baby is a girl, I have this gut feel that she's going to be called Ingrid. Fredrick loves his grandmother very very much.

I hope, they don't call the baby Dagmar or Axel, as mentioned here. These are names, we have in Germany too and they are boring and oldfashioned. But royals like oldfashioned names, I think ...

I like your suggestion for girl names..very classy!

And I really think that if it's a girl she should have Fred's Grand-mere's name in there (Ingrid).
And for some reason I really like Dagmar! I guess because it's a name I'd never heard before...

This should be the lists of approved names and you can just click the individual letters to see the selection. At a quick glance it seems to comprise a lot of old-fashioned names as well which I don't know anybody who are named today - but of course they may reappear.
I don't know whether for example a name like Alexis is 'natural' to Holland; it wouldn't be in Denmark; I would personally prefer a name which has relevance to Frederik's and Mary's own roots.
Thank you UserDane. I will certainly look at the website. Thanks for your help

I don't want to go off-topic either, but no, Catharina, I wasn't at all offended. I was just offering an alternative perspective.

Best Wishes,

Polly

There was actually; he was the son of Prince Valdemar and Marie of Orleons and the grandson of King Christian IX. He died childless so there's no 'line' from him. He married an American woman in 1924 and then became Count Viggo of Rosenborg (the title which princes marrying non-royals get; QMII's two cousins have the same titel).

Personally, I don't favour the name Viggo - it's oddly old-fashioned I think. But of course someone like Viggo Mortensen (really unusual to see a man this age carrying the name of Viggo) has done a lot to increase the appeal of the name

I think the next one they will name after themselves in some fashion -- I really like that old-fashioned tradition of naming your daughter after her mother, and the son after the dad. Sweet.

Whatever the names will be, I am just so glad that royalty always express more taste in naming babies than Hollywood! Can you imagine a Princess Apple of Denmark or a Prince Michael Jackson of Denmark?

I have been doing some "research" (i.e. googling ) and have found there is a great shared history of Scotland and Denmark (via The Vikings) and I think Mary's father will suggest some names relevant to this fact...One of the forerunners is Harald, who was King at the time of the Viking invasion(s) of Scotland...I like Harald and I think "Harry" is a great modern nickname for it...I know there is another Prince Harry across the channel but he has a different full name...Prince Henry and Prince Harald, there is enough room for them both...and Chris and Harry sound so cute!!!

So my suggested combo is:

Prince Harald Abel Vilhelm Frederik

As a name is comes full circle:
Harald - Viking in Scotland, Mary is of Scottish descent
Abel - name of the Dutch explorer - Abel Tasman - who discovered Tasmania, wher Mary grew up and it is the name of a past Danish king/prince
Vilhelm - not sure just sounded good, maybe its connection to the British monarchy (William) ???
Frederik - name of the childs' Danish father, has a Scottish/Australian mother

What do you all think???
