There was - about 800 years ago married to Valdemar Sejr (Valdemar the Victorius):
"Queen Dagmar is one of the most important characters associated with Riberhus Castle. Nevertheless, most of what we know about her we know from folksongs, legends and myths. Dagmar was a Bohemian princess, christened Margaretha Dragomira (“the peace-loving one”) and daughter of Premysl Ottokar I, king of Bohemia, and Adela of Meissen"

There's a bit more about her here: http://www.ribevandrerhjem.dk/index.php?id=70

If it were up to Mary alone, I don't think that Dagmar would be a choice at all. Australians have a habit of shortening names or using diminutives, and 'Dag' isn't an attractive option in my opinion. In the first place, in some parts of the country a 'dag' (which is how Australians would pronounce it - with a hard 'g') can mean someone seriously un-cool; a fool; or a hopeless person. In others, it can mean a buffoon or a clown. I think that Mary might instinctively reject it because of these connotations, but I mean no reflection on the suitability or appeal of the name in an European context.

Someone here also said that 'Henrietta' doesn't sound very good in Danish. Presumably, that won't be any little princess' first name, either. However, there are so many pretty girls names which must resonate well in both languages. I think that 'Ingrid' is a lovely name, incidentally.

Hm, here in Germany we shorten Dagmar to Daggi, but thanks to Norwegianne ( ) I just learned that the Danish to speak the "g", so I have no idea how they would shorten the name. Any idea?

Henrietta would be great, as it refers to both Mary's mother and frederick's father.

I am usually completely off the mark when it comes to this guessing names and sex of babies but I like these few names:

Girl: Louise, Elizabeth, Victoria, Sophie, Caroline, Henriette, Charlotte

Boy: Alexander, Karl, Michael, Erik


This site lists the genealogy of the Danish Royal family so maybe a few ideas from there

Thyra is cool
There are other very pretty girls name available from Danish history - Leonore Christine, Charlotte Amalie, etc.
And someone mentioned Cecilie - which I would really like (guess who have a daughter by that name... )

Princess Dagmar Alexandra Ingrid Peta Adelaide (The final name in honour of Oz)

Prince Peter Alexander Frederick Sydney

Even though the baby will be born in 2007, thus is grown-up at around 2025 and times are changing rapidly, I don't believe the Danish RF will want another "Thyra". Though the name is beautiful.

What about a Sven Frederick? Sven means "little" and I heard it's quite liked in combination with the name of the father.

i think it'll be a girl. it's sad that all of our 'voting' won't count in the end. Anyway a beautiful little Princess would be wonderful. I think Frederik would be crazy about her!

i reckon it'll be a boy. If you look at the family genes since the Queen M's time - it's been double boys for both the Queen and Pss Alex, so i think it'll be the same for the CP couple.

It was interesting to see 'Emma' at the top of the 2003 list. One of the Danish kings, Canute, became king of England (might have been king of Norway, also) and his wife's name was Emma. From memory, she was originally from Normandy and Canute was her second husband. 'Emma', therefore has a suitable royal history, and it's historical and contemporary at the same time.

Christian IX had six children, among them Frederik VIII of Denmark, Queen Alexandra of the United Kingdom (wife of Edward VII), King George of Greece.

His second daughter was born Princess Dagmar of Denmark, she later married Tsar Alexander III of Russia and become known as Empress Maria Fydorovna of Russia.

Empress Maria was recently re-buried in Russia, during the service Crown Princess Mary left because she was feeling 'unwell' it is now more likely because she was pregnant, that is where the connection comes in.

Thyra is a very historical name in Denmark, not a bad choise at all.

Forget Princess Thyra and say hello to Queen Thyra.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jelling_stones

The stones are Unesco world heritage and is considered the Kingdoms birthcitificate. :)

I am for Thyra or Dagmar if its a girl

Thank you for the link. I saw that the translation spelled the queen's name as Thyrvé. Now that's an interesting name!
