I think it should be someone close to the baby and family, because godparents should be the ones who "vested interest in raising a more complete human being" someone who "who is responsible for the child in the event of both parents demise or incapacition" they should have this in mind when chosing who the godparents will be and not onloy if they are Royal or not, if they are important persons or not!!!

I don't think so. Amber is a breakfast radio announcer on SAFM in Adelaide at the moment.

The only responsibility godparents have in Denmark is to make sure that the child is raised in the correct faith.
Its not their responsibility to raise the child if the parent pass away.

I think prince Gustav zu sayn-wittgenstein-Berleburg will be chosen He seems so nice also when you see him with his niece and nephew

I just think that the two cousins Gustav and Frederik are closer to each other, but she his two sisters would also be obvious.
It was only Pavlos whos was godfather of Frederiks 8 cousins.

I still prefer Astrid or Charlotte, these are beautiful names. When I see the pictures I think this is a little princess Charlotte or princess Astrid. I hope Mary and Frederik won't name her Dagmar. It's an awful name. The princess doesn't look like Dagmar. Christian and Dagmar

I tend to agree she will be right in line for the throne they won't choose anything that wouldn't sound right with Queen in front of it.Caroline is very pretty and classic that works so does Charlotte and Cathereine,Anna and so on.I don't see it being Elizabeth that has become too common even among royalty.Family names I think are more likey for her middle names.

That would be very fitting for Queen Anne-Marie to be a godmother I really hope they choose her.

To go back to the whole "Is it okay for Mary and Frederik to call their daughter Sophia even though Felipe and Letizia just called their's Sofia" discussion, something just came to my mind here..

Two spares, let's take Constantjin of the Netherlands and Joachim of Denmark. Would it had been the catastrophy, is they had both been called Joachim or both have been called Constantjin? These two have absolutely, really, absolutely nothing to do with each other, two different countries, and both spares, not heirs - just like Sofia and lille prinsessen.

Anyway .. Mary and Frederik had already decided for a name, when they left the hospital, so I doubt Felipe and Letizia's choice have affected them, just because Mary and Frederik announce their daughter's name later than Felipe and Letizia do.

I don't think Mary and Frederik have called their daughter Sophia more than I think they might have called her Ingrid or Ida or Anna, I'm just keeping the possibility "Sophia" open.

I see where you're coming from, but what about Joachim? When he was born, Joachim was an unusual name (IIRC), and he was the son of the heir to the throne

But I agree with you, they will probably choose a classic name - Charlotte or Louise

Good point, JessRulz, Joachim must have been unusual, or common at least. And what about Benedikte and Anne-Marie ? Those names had never been used in royalty before, and they were in line for throne after Magrethe. Christian will be king, that's the most important thing, not his sister and before I forget Nikolaj and Felix( ) are in the line of succesion too! I don't know, I have a feeling it won't be a very traditional name, I think it will be a commom name, but still special, pretty and royal.

At the time Benedikte & Anne-Marie were named, 1944 and 1946, they were not in line ot the throne - nor was Margrethe. The Danish constitution was changed in 1953 - to allow females on the throne. Before that, they had no rights to the throne.

Actually no. Females had no right to the throne in Denmark before 1953 so it didnt matter what they called hteir girls.
As far goes with Joachim one of his names is Christian so i would gues he would take that name if he bwcame king.

Just out of curiosity. What is it that bothers so many people about the names Dagmar and Thyra? IMHO both names are rather pretty.
