I for one think they will stay away from a first name already used by another princess. I know i'd like my child to have her own name and not be always confused with another princess. and there are so many beautiful names out there that it doesn't necessarily have to be ingrid(as a first name i mean). besides i think the name is already decided, and probably has been so for quite some time. it'll just be a very long wait till july 1 st to find it out

I think her name will definitely be:

Henrietta Dagmar Margrethe Ingrid

and her monogram will be a cursive (curvy) H...like Frederik, Mary and Christian's curvy letters...and unlike Henrik's upright basic bold H which is his monogram...that is my prediction...fingers crossed

I had five names for a princess but I think I've narrowed it down. I had:
Anna-Sophie Ingrid Henrietta
Thyra Ingrid Henrietta Margerethe
Christina Ingrid Henrietta Margarethe
Anna Elenora Henrietta Ingrid
Ingrid Dagmar Henrietta Margrete

They are all names from Danish history or family.

But I don't think they will use the name Anna-Sophie b/c of the new Spanish princess being Sophia. They may not use Ingrid b/c of Ingrid Alexandra of Norway. Would they use Christina b/c former Princess Alex of Denmark is now officially know as Alexandra Christina, Coutess of Fredriksbourg? Someone also told me Thyra was old fashioned in Denmark. So that would leave of my choices Anna Elenora. Both are names of daughters of past Danish kings. Can anyone tell me how to pronounce Thyra. Is the t silent?

I believe it is pronounced Tier-ah or Tour-ah although I could be wrong.

Perhaps Lasse Pedersen, Userdane, or another one of our lovely Danish friends can tell us.

I was discussed somwhere back in the thread. The y is pronounced like a french "u" (like in une) or a German "ü", a swedish "y" or a turkish "ü", so if you know any of those languages, that might help.
Otherwise, hard to explain, you would probably have to listen to it.

Samitude asked earlier how to pronounce the name. Betina, a member from Denmark, replied in post #505 :

Quote:
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.
She couldn't help us.


Another member, H.M. Margrethe also from Denmark, replied in post #164:

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
I'm still clueless and lost.

Essentially, we non-Danes will have to make up our own style/pronunciation of the name, until someone can tell us clearly and correctly the way to prounounce Thyra.

T-"u" like the french word une- rah

So put it together and that's how you say it. I would imagine phonetically it would look something like this: Teu-ra.

A particularly Danish or even just Scandinavian name would be very nice. Doubt Mary would go for that somehow, which is a shame. Wouldn't it be nicer to have a princess Mette, or Princess Sigrid, Bente or Elin? Rather than yet another Elizabeth, Caroline etc etc?

i heard that frederik and mary are considering felipe and letizia to be godparents of the lillepigen, but since they are catholic i'm unsure. all of christian's godparents were protestants. this would also exclude phillipe and mathilde and therefore we are only left with willem and maxima and haakon and mette marit, but the last ones were chosen for christian, which leaves us with only willem and maxima (and maxima is still catholic as well). so quite a strage situation if they choose heirs and wifes of heirs. :)

I hope she doesn´t call the baby Henrietta...for me it is an old-fashioned heavy name...Marietta sounds lovely though...I wonder if they ever thought of that name. Does anyone ever think that it´s only because we read so much about the different royal families that it would be more of an inconvenience for us if they named their daughter Ingrid, rather than for the DRF, as although they have contact with the Norwegians it´s not on a daily basis...

I really hope that they won't name her Henrietta. Do they have to name their daughter with a traditional name? They can give her a modern name. This little girl won't be queen so it doesn't matter. I like Astrid, it sounds great:

Astrid Margrethe Henrietta Ingrid

What do you think?

Well, I think it would be nice to make Princess Anne a godparent but I don't think it'll happen. I think the Royal godparents will be of the heirs group. I wouldn't be suprised if William wasn't chosen.

My suggestion for the godparents are:
Crown Princess Maxima of the Netherlands, a sister of Crown Princess Mary, Crown Princess Felipe of Spain, Edward, Earl of Wessex, Marie Cavallier, Prince Laurent of Belgium and two friends of Frederik and Mary
