I would love the new Danish royal baby be named Andre, Nicholas, Erik, Alexander, Peter, Thomas or Soren if it's a boy. If it's a girl, Alice, Astrid, Olivia (I don't know if it's a Danish name) or Anita are good options.

I remember when I've got the news about Christian's birth and I felt so happy it was a boy after so many royal baby girls. And I hope it will be a boy again.

I think Mary is born lucky so she will have the pigeon pair...boy then girl, and if they decide to have four children like Mary said...I predict two boys in a row...So boy-girl-boy-boy

That's a great choice! All of them are nice names but Phillipe is spelled like that in Denmark?

Yes very many little girls in Denmark are named Olivia. Very sweet name. I like Astrid more

Totally agree with you Cristine! Love Soren but it isn't very royal. Peter, Andre and Nicholas are royal. I also love Alice and suggested it in a previous post

Haha we even share our names

I'm really curious about these "rules"! Having worked in the Births, Deaths & Marriages Registry here in Perth Australia I know that we have some guidelines but no rules per se. Are you able to post a link to these rules or a summary of them.
I fail to see what is wrong with Tasman. Wold it also preclude Tamsin for a little princess??

Here in Brazil there aren't rules about what names the parents can choose for their children and we see a lot of ridiculous, embarrassing and strange names, many of them are reated by the parents - ugly names by the way. But people with strange or ridiculous names are allowed to ask to change them by a lawsuit. In Portugal there are a list of the names allowed and that's the reason the Portugueses have always the same name - Joaquim, Manuel, Luis, Joo... But I think its much better than allowing any kind of name.

I think Astrid Olivia Ingrid Henrietta would be a lovely name but maybe Frederik and Mary would like to put Margrethe in the middle.

Just after writing my suggestions of names for the new prince/princess I get noticed that Nicholas is almost the same as Nikolai so maybe Nicholas is out of question. So my suggestion for the name is Andre Frederik Gustaf (after Frederick's great-grandfather) Stuart (after Mary's brother). Or put Joaquim instead of Stuart.

Oh, it's nice I'm not the only one called Cristine here!

What rules should be followed ? can you give an example pls ...
I like the name Alexander or Felix if its a boy. i think it sounds nice if you call your sons both alexander & christian they work together.
For a girl, Alexandra, Anesa, Fenia ( princess Fenia, that sound nice.. "The girl's name Fenia \f(e)-nia\. In Scandinavian mythology, a giantess enslaved by the Danish king Frodi, who reigned peacefully for thirty years." source ) i think a change of name would be nice..

In Denmark we have lists of names and different spellings of names which are approved and can be used without any problems. If you want to name your baby something else you can apply to the Ministry of Ecclesiastical Affairs - my husband and I did that for our third daughter via the local parish clerk. If the forname you apply for is considered to be a proper forname, not unsuitable to be used as a name in Denmark, is not inappropriate or may cause offence the application will probably go through.
A name may be rejected if the spelling of it coincides with the pronounciation of another family's surname for example (as happened in our case since a lot of surnames are now protected names); when we changed it - just removed a letter - it was approved.

Tasman would be a really odd-sounding name for a Danish baby IMO - the same with Tamsin. But of course foreign-sounding names will probably be approved when one of the parents are foreigners and can demonstrate valid cause for choosing the name.

I found this link (and i hope i found the english link) to the ministry of family affairs.
Here you can see the rules about first, middle and last names, and thereafter i have linked the lists of names approved for girls and boys in Denmark.
We have theese laws so parents wont call their children names they will be nagged about. Some years ago in Denmark some parents wanted to call their son Satan and they were not allowed thank God .

Familiestyrelsen: The Danish Act on Names

and here the names:
Familiestyrelsen: Navnelister

choose either "Godkendte drengefornavne" (approved boy names)and hit "Vis liste"
or "Godkendte pigefornavne" (approvedgirl names) and hit "Vis liste"

Hope this solve it else feel free to ask more

Yea it is like Nikolai. I don't really like Gustaf so I would replace it with Axel. I think Andre Axel has a nice ring to it.

You aren't the only Cristine but mine is spelt differently : Christine
