I suppose the little girl will get less names than her brother.
I guess they're running out of creativity ...

What I do know is that the names where given to the previous two princesses after their baptism godmothers... is this also common in Denmark?

Thyra

She was the one daughter of King Frederik who had a child out of wedlock. And some other Thyra I know is married to Heinrich of Hannover (Ernst-August´s brother) and Heinrich also has a child out of wedlock (with Desiree Nick). So this name might always have a little unpleasant taste. Another problem might come up: How will Australian Mary try to pronounce it? "Taira" or so?

How does one pronounce Thyra? Is it Thigh-ruh or Tee-ruh or something else altogether?

me too, but we all know that Mary is a modern woman and she won't choose an old-fashioned name for her daughter. It hasn't to be a traditional name. The princess won't be heiress. Christian has a traditional name but the princess doesn't have to. I like the name Alice

Yes but for me Dagmar is not the name for a precious baby girl. This little one needs something sweet like Alice, Louise or Caitlyn

Its correct that Frederik 8. had a daughter named Thyra, but its was Christian 9. daughter Thyra who had a daughter out of wedlock and not her niece.
Christian 9. daughter married Duke Ernst August of Hannover and it was his sgrandchild who also had a childout of wedlock.¨
Frederik 8. daughter Thyra never married.

And no the danish name Thyra is not pronounced the way you suggest. The danish language is very hard to tell ppl and i have to think about a propper way for you to pronounce it.

Maybe I have an Idea. Do you know french? The y is pronounced exatly like the french u like "Susanne" and "une"
Then you have a normal T like "take" then you take the french way to say "u" and finally the "ra" sound is like grass proounced like they would do in oxford thats really the best i can do it. hope it make a little sense

Oh, okay. Thanks for the clarifications about the name. In my head Dagmar sounded more old fashioned than Thyra, somehow...

Not really. I don't think it exists in English. It is u in French, y in Danish or Swedish, ü in German or Turkish...
I think it is probably right between an u (english oo) and and i (english ee), but it is really hard to explain.

What do you all think of Anika or Linnea for the new Princess?

These are beatiful names...But Linnea reminds me a little of a Botanic Scientific from the XVIII Century! Annika is better.

For some odd reason, I was working today, and thinking of the royals (wondering if Leti had her baby yet), and I got the strongest intuition, or the strongest feeling that Mary and Fred's new daughter's name was Henrietta. No clue why, but I did- she just was Princess Henrietta. And I wasn't even thinking of Henrietta as a first name.
Then again, if that turns out to be true, I'd better buy a lottery ticket!

I can tell you what they WON'T call her...I think they will want to use an original name while still being historical...And they won't want a double up, I think Mary will want her precious daughter to be one a kind...

It will NOT be:
Alexandra - the Countess and a nephew called Alexander Stephens (Jane's son)
Kate/Catherine - niece Kate Stephens (Jane's daughter)
Ingrid - Norwegian princess, but it will be a definite middle name, just not the first name
Sophie or Louise - Countess of Wessex and her daughter
Beatrice or Beatrix - it's possible but Princess Beatrice of York and Queen Beatrix might rule it out
Eugenie - Princess Eugenie or York
Victoria or Madeleine - the Swedes
Margrethe - definitely a middle name and if it does happen to be used as a first name they will use a nickname with an "Aussie" feel perhaps, Princess Meg, Princess Maggie or even Princess Greta...
Elizabeth - still undecided on this one, it sounds very English to me, I know Queen Elizabeth and the baby share a birthday and it is Mary's middle name, but that mightn't be enough for them to use it even as a middle name, let alone a first name...

Come on July...the suspense is going to kill me

I have been feeling that Henrietta/e and Ingrid are certain to be included, and I agree with a few here that Margrethe is likely also, as a second or third name maybe. I think that Ingrid and Margrethe will be third or second. Henriette/a must be the first name. I think this is a good pick, because it honors Mary's mother and Fred's father!

I think they'll incld both Mary's mother's name and the late Queen Ingrid's name. They may also incld Queen Marrethe as they did for Christian with Prince Henrik's name. But I reckon the first name will be unique and historic to the Danes.

We'll soon find out in a few months time, i can't wait!
