Yeah, Ingrid is too common among royal babies. I would prefer they think outside the box....but not too far. I still think Thyra would be a beautiful name. It's in the family, it's Danish and it's a little unexpected. For any Danes that post here, how do you pronounce that name? I've tried to figure it out, but the most I can think of are:

Tie-ra
Tear-a
Theer-a
Thigh-ra


I doubt any of those are right! LOL

I think that the pronoucing of the name is just as the American way you know like Tyra Banks ?
Her in Denmark we has just added the letter h betwen t and y hope it makes sence.

Ah, so my first guess was spot on. Thanks!

I don't think they will use Henri or John in the baby's name, male or female, since Christian already has both of those. I know Mary's mum's name is Henrietta, but using the "Henri" for Christian's name was probably a nod not only to Prince Henrik, but to Mary's mother as well.

If they have a girl, I'm sure that Ingrid, if not the first name, will probably be among their choices. I don't think they'll use Margrethe as a first name either. If it's a boy, you can be he'll probably have Frederik somewhere in his name.

I think a good formula for another boy would be Traditional Name, Danish Name, Family Name, Traditional Name which is almost how Christian's name went. The Christian was a traditional name, Valdemar is a very Danish name, and Henri (paternal gf and maternal gm) and John (maternal gm) were both family names. A hypothetical name would be something like Harald Edvard Gustav Frederik. For a girl, I think Dagmar Thyra Ingrid Margrethe is a good choice. I really hope they decide to honor Queen Ingrid, and I think Margrethe is a wonderful choice not only for the present queen, but also the queen's own grandmother and namesake, Princess Margaret of Connaught. And for a boy, I think Gustav is a great choice, not only for the queen's grandfather (Gustav Adolf, husband of Margaret and father of Queen Ingrid) and if they use that, maybe Fred's cousin Gustav could be a potential godfather.

I'd LOVE to see Mary, Maxima and Letizia as godmothers to each others new babies. I hope at least one of them opts for this, although Mary couldn't be godmother to Infante/a #2, and since they usually only have one of each godparent, Maxima (she's still Catholic, isn't she?) would be a great choice.

Very close

"Kah-ro-lee-neh" rather then "Kah-ro-lee-nah"

I love Morhange's suggestions of "Harald Edvard Gustav Frederik" and "Dagmar Thyra Ingrid Margrethe"...but I prefer "Thyra Dagmar Ingrid Margrethe"...Thyra just seems more modern and fresher than Dagmar...even though I know Dagmar and Thyra were sisters (names from the same era)...

But I definitely think *Harald* will be a forerunner for the boys name because it combines an old fashioned, traditional name with modern nickname (Prince Harry of Denmark???)...Can't wait to see what they choose, but I think we will be waiting until August 2007...Ho hum!

Yay.....someone else who votes for Thyra if the baby is a girl.



I really, really like that name and would use it in my own family if/when I have any children.

I think it will be a GIRL!!! Only because the whole story of Mary Donaldson reads like a fairy tale anyway why shouldn't she get wants this time...

What I mean is who would of thought a middle class career girl working in Sydney, Australia (raised in Tasmania) would meet the future king of Denmark in a pub, no less...She did...Who would have thought she would have married him too...she did...who would of thought she would get pregnant so early in their marriage...she did...who would have thought their first child would be a boy and therefore taking the pressure of them to produce an heir...she did...

So although there are alot of boys in that family, I think Mary somehow leads a charmed life and is carrying a girl...I think the pattern of their kids will be
"upside down and inside out" of her own family - which is G-G-B-G - so Mary and Fred will have: B-G-B-B...And Mary and her own brother, John are only 18 months apart too (Jane, Patricia, John & Mary)...So I am hoping for: Christian, Thyra, Harald, Johannes???
