Marietta isn't even an actual conventional name, hence why I doubt they'd use it. Why not name the kid Atlanta or San Francisco?

It's the name of a city in Georgia. It is not an appropriate name to give a princess. Like I said, let's go ahead and name the kid Atlanta or Dallas.....I know people who gave their children those names.

I don't know anyone named Marietta [I've never even heard of the name being used in the United States] but I know plenty of Georgias and Virginias. Same goes for Carolina. My best friend in grammar school was named Carolina. But those 3 names are commonly accepted names for girls.....I've never heard of Marietta being one of them.

Nevada and Idaho? Who names their kid Idaho? That's not even remotely attractive.

That's a last name. Not a first name. That's not the same thing. That's not the name chosen for a child. There are a ton of last names that would never make an appropriate first name for any child, especially a royal one. Idaho is a great example. Besides, that's fictional.


I'd like to see them give their daughter a traditional, yet beautiful name. Charlotte, Louise, Marie, Alexandra, Sophia, Theresa, Ingrid, Margrethe....something like that.

I doubt Mary and Frederik even know there's a city called Marietta in the States .. I'm sure most of the world population doesn't even know ..

I've looked this entire thread through and here are my very faves for Mary and Frederik:

Sophie (or even better Sophia, but I doubt that one, since the new spanish princess' name is Sofia)
Louise
Emma
Catherine
Isabella
Laura
Marietta
Clara
Ida

And then three VERY regal middlenames : Ingrid Magrethe Henrietta.
I hope it has an "A" at the end ..

It's an actual name here... a very old one ...
and I quite like this name!
(even if I had to think about Marietta Slomka (a German ZDF NEWS Lady) all the time ).

There are 81 Marietta's in Denmark. Just to get the stats right. It is surely a name here and old names are back in style so maybe.

Stil prefere Thyra though

Maybe they have already decided the name.. I'm pretty sure, that whatever they have decided right now, won't be chamged just because a princess in another country has been named the same..

Marietta is a great idea but I'm pretty sure there's a song or musical called "Naughty Marietta".... and I can see the headlines in a few years time.

I thought one thing: maybe they will name her Ingrid. The princess in Norway is not Ingrid, it's Ingrid Alexandra and she will be known as queen Ingrid Alexandra. The little Danish princess won't be queen. Her calling name would be only Ingrid. It's a little difference between these two princesses

I'd expect Ingrid Alexandra to drop the second name when she grows up, like her father dropped Magnus from his name. It's a rather unwieldy name and she's likely called simply Ingrid, just like her brother is probably called simply Sverre.

I think Ingrid may be part of this princess's name, but I doubt it will be a first name. I think the first name will be traditional, well-used in the royal family, and probably not used for any small children in this generation of European royal families. I'm still liking Caroline as a first name, with Ingrid, Henrietta, and Margrethe as middle names.

.
Norwegian Ingrid Alexandra is already just called ( and known as) Ingrid, that's what her parents call her, Mette-Marit said that in an interview. Her brother Sverre Magnus is actually called Magnus by his family.
