Members have posted many names if the child were to be a boy, Catango.

Several of us have agreed that the name Søren would be a great choice, along with Erik, Henrik, Harald, and Axel.

Is it likely that the baby would be named Henrik when Christian has already been given the name Henri as his middle name?
For a boy I think it is nearly certain he will have Fredrik in his name. I love the name Soren does it have any history in the royal family?

Finally decided on a name for a princess: Anna Matilda Margrethe Henrietta

The first two names have a royal history and then the second two after the grandmothers, same as Christian

I hope this isn't a silly question but will the name of the baby be concealed until the christening or is that ritual only held for the heir to the throne?

No noone have ever been named Søren in the royal family of Denmark. But the name Jørgen has been a part of Denmarks royal family.
I go for Christoffer if it a boy and Ingrid Henrietta Margrethe Mary

Or what about Niels Erik Christoffer - names of the kings.

Niels 1104-1134, Erik I-VII, Christoffer I-III

Or Eric Knud Hans

Not a silly question at all! For some reason, the Danish royal family does not disclose the names of a newborn until the child is christened. That happened with Joachim and both his sons as well.
Henrik/Henri might well be used again; Frederik and his son already share that name, Frederik's is the Danish version, Henrik, while Christian's is the French Henri. The name Valdemar/Waldemar is used as a middle name now for three princes - Christian and Felix (both Valdemar according to the royal website: http://kongehuset.dk/publish.php?dogtag=k_en_fam ) and Joachim who is named Waldemar.
As Betina has said, Søren is not commonly used in the royal family. I'm sure there will be few dropped jaws if they decide on Søren!

In my oppinion if Søren is on the table for a name why not just call the boy Torben
No I am just kidding but Søren is soooooo common in Denmark and not very royal.

I also like names with Ann-..., like Ann-Christin, Ann-Marie or Ann-Kathrin.

To all the Danes - how does the name *Arthur* sound in Danish? I think they will use a somewhat "whimsy" first name, while keeping the other three in line with tradition...for example:

Prince Arthur Harald Abel Frederik
or
Princess Arabella Dagmar Ingrid Margrethe

*regarding the name "Henrietta", I think Mary would absolutely LOVE to use this name for her (firstborn) daughter...but considering that there may be certain royal protocols to contend with, she might have to make do with a subtle "Henri(etta)" in her firstborn SON's name...and be patient and hopeful that she has more than one daughter and use Henrietta as a first name for her 2nd daughter...And we all know by now how patient Mary is

Possible combo for second daughter: Henrietta Matilda Olympia Maria

I'm pretty sure that Mary and Frederik would be able to use Henrietta as a middle name if this baby is a girl. I don't have a good idea what first name Frederik and Mary might choose for a girl but I'm pretty sure Margrethe, Ingrid, Henrietta, and Mary have good shots at becoming middle names.

If it's a boy, perhaps Alexander or Anthony. Regal sounding names, but not necessarily Danish names. If it's a girl, [aside from the names I've already said I'd like], maybe Anneliese or Alexandra.

Alexandra might not be an option, but considering how well-regarded P. Alexandra is, who knows? And CP Frederik's cousin is named Alexandra, too.
I personally love the name; there are so many nickname options to go along with it!

I hope that it will be a Princess Ingrid. Denmark has too many boys while Orange-Nassau has too many girls this generation.

I think it will definitely be a girl...Just Mary's *luck*....she leads a charmed life, that one...lucky enough to marry a Prince she met in pub, lucky enough to provide a firstborn heir, Prince Christian...they will have a girl!!! It is all too cute and nice and predictable to otherwise...if they have a boy, I'll eat my hat

Princess Matilda Olympia Margrethe Ingrid
or
Princess Arabella Dagmar Margrethe Ingrid
or
Princess Henrietta Thyra Margrethe Ingrid

So many great names to chose from...no wonder it takes three months to name this Danish baby royals...I think the first name is decided at birth - because they have to call the baby something in private - but the middle names are debated over those months before christening so the appropriate people are honoured and the correct protocols are followed...
