Probably, as I doubt SBS or any other station will air the christening (they didn't air Christian's, why would they air Lilleprinsesse's?)

Not Aussie, German Nichola And I agree, I'm 99.99% sure we can rule out "Princess Kylie" - or any "Kylie" in the princess' name

I do not think they will choose a traditional name as first name. They will choose a beautiful name, they want for their daughter, and then leave the royal traditional names to the middle names.

They're gonna surprise us.

If we're going to see the christening live online, what websites could we go on to watch it?

Oh, and what is the christening time in Denmark? I know the time difference between Denmark and where I live, so that's not a problem.

Odds on princess to be named Margrethe

Odds are on the newborn daughter of Danish Crown Prince Frederik and his Australian-born wife Mary being named Margrethe after the Danish queen, bookies say.

According to the article, people are betting on names such as Ingrid, Lotte, Nanna, Alexandra (after Joachim's ex) and Henrietta.

I am sure that they names that they choose will have some sort of royal and historical provenance.

I think they'll definitely have Margrethe as a middle name, but I don't think as a first name. Henrietta probably as well. Charlotte is a pretty first name, so is Astrid.

Studid question maybe, but who is Amber? Haven't the godparents been made public yet, the christening is sunday allready isn't it?

Hello! I think that first name would be:
Dagmar,
Ingeborg,
Frederica (is after crown prince Frederick),
Elizabeth (is after Elizabeth II and crown princess Mary),
Sophia
Isabella

The middle names probably would be:
Ingrid
Margrethe
Henrietta

Those are exactly the middle names I chose, in that order too. Elizabeth, or Elisabeth, is one of my bets for the name, Isabella is a good one too. I don't think that they'll have a Frederika, just because it might get too confusing with Frederik. I don't think that we'll have a Sophia either (even though it is a beautiful name) because the new little Infanta of the same age is Sofia, also confusing. I don't think she'll be a Christina or a Kirsten or anything of that sort, since they are too much like her older brother's name.

Oh yes, I forgot infanta Sophia but anyway I think that the first name should be Danish name - because her father is crown prince of Denmark. I prefer that they follow traditions and choose some danish princess name .
Well lets wait and see - only 3 days now!

When will the little princess get her name?

I'm not very informed about the royal House of Denmark

By the way, I really like the name Sophia!

On Sunday (July 1st) at the baptism, we would firstly get to hear it.

Those I´m liking too. Same for Charlotte, Alice, Anastasia Anna/Anne, Amelie, Magdalena, Marlene, Valerie, Florentine, Helene, Caroline, Sofie, Victoria, Therese, Isabell. Timeless names.

Maybe not so traditional (but fitting for a princess): Leonie, Aurelia/Aurelie

Some of the very danish/nordic names, I´m liking as well (Freja, Thyra, Astrid, Ida...)

Ingrid is beautiful too. But firstly it´s already the name of Princess Ingrid Alexandra of Norway and Countess Ingrid von Pfeil und Klein-Ellguth and secondly I´d be somehow quite happy, if they would choose the call name apart from
Mary
Ingrid
Henrietta
Margrethe
Elisabeth

Don´t like too much of a burden for a child...and even more...I´d somehow consider it as a very tender gesture, if they would go in this case for a call name, they are simply liking and considering as fitting for the little girl.
Mary always seems, as if she desperately wants to adjust, so I don´t think, she is much for experiments.
And Frederik...well, I simply can´t imagine him screening books for first names. I´ve a feeling, he doesn´t care much for such things. So the more I´d be happy about being proven wrong and so an individual call name for the princess (the other names are usually not that important anyway...and in many families reserved for traditional names)
Of course I wouldn´t want it to be too exotic (*cough* dutch RF *cough*)
So a classy, not too family related call name...and I´d be satisfied. The "Ingrid", "Margrethe" and "Henriette" one can take then for name nr. 2/3/4...

First to answer Coco the princess gets her name this coming Sunday July 1st.

Well maybe I'm in the minority here but I kind of think since she is not the first heir of Frederik I think she will get a new name just for her. Yes, it may have some significant value as far as it being somewhat of a royal name but I don't think her first name will be directly taken from one of the previous Danish princesses. Just look at history and other royal families, the second born seems to get a royal sounding name but with less historic family value. But that is just my guess. I also think though that her middle names will be very typical Danish and both grandmothers will be honored. We'll see but I'm kind of thinking the first name will be a little bit of a suprise to many.

I've been thinking about it, and I think that it would be nice for her to have an uncommon name. Not uncommon as in weird, or unpronounceable names, but something that isn't often used in the Danish Royal Family, or any Scandenavian Royal Family.

There have been very many little Princess Ingrid's, Thyra's, Astrid's, and Dagmar's running around the Scandenavian palaces for hundreds of years. They're normal and new.

Mathilde and Caroline are among the top ten names for girls in Denmark, if I'm not mistaken (feel free to say if I am!), and are also royal names (Mathilde of Belgium, Caroline of Monaco are two modern day examples. I'm not sure about Mathilde, but Caroline has been used as a royal name numerous times for many years). However, giving her one of those pretty names could be a challenge, because it would be hard for her (and any other little girl) to go to a preschool where there are five Mathilde's and three Caroline's in her class. However, she would be the only Princess Caroline or Mathilde in the room!

If they did go classic, I like Astrid as a name. There haven't been as many Astrid's around as there were fifty years ago or so. I don't think they should go with Ingrid as a call name, as there have been more little Ingrid's popping up in Denmark and Norway's royal families (Ingrid Alexandra, who will one day be Queen of Norway is her biggest threat; Countess Ingrid, her cousin, may also get confusing at family get togethers). Is Denmark still male-dominated in terms of who is first in line to the throne? If so, then it may get even harder if she is followed by two or three little brothers, who will be ahead of her in the line to succession. She would probably be even more likely to get confused with Ingrid Alexandra. "So YOU'RE the princess/ Crown Princess/ QUEEN of Norway?" "No, I'm just a princess of Denmark who has two/three brothers and their families in front of me to the throne." Not much fun for our poor Princess Ingrid.

For middle names, I think they can use the stuffier, more tradional names to honor loved ones, or names that might get her confused with another princess or famous lady. Margrethe (pretty much a given), Thyra, Ingrid, Ingeborg, Astrid, Anne, Benedikte, Marie, Alexandra, Alexia, or Theodora could all honor a woman on the paternal side of the family. Henrietta, Jane, Patricia, Susan, Elizabeth, or Mary could honor someone on the maternal side. Sophia/Sophie, Amalia/Amelia/Amalie, Arianna, Eleanor/Leonor/Leonore and more are names that could confuse her with another princess.

Or Frederik and Mary could go all out with an original name that gets everyone surprised. Kylie, Emily, Emma, Laura, Brianna, Bridget, Ashley, Nicole, India, Ireland, a Greenlandic or Icelandic name,the list could go on and on! But whatever Frederik and Mary choose, it will be a name that they like and makes them happy, and that is the most important thing!

My final and hoped for choice is Elisabeth Ingrid Henrietta Margrethe (or some combination of the last three) Christian and Elisabeth sound so adorable together

I would also like Louise or Marie, those are pretty too. Marie Elizabeth Ingrid Henrietta Margrethe, if they would be bold and pick five instead of four. I put Margrethe at the end, because it seems custom for the "younger heirs" (ie Joachim, Nikolai and Felix) to have the name of a monarch at the end of theirs (Joachim Holger Valdemar Christian, Nikolai William Alexander Frederik and Felix Henrik Valdemar Christian) so maybe they will have Margrethe at the end, definitely Ingrid in there, and most likely Henrietta too, although I would think that Christian's 'Henri' is for his paternal grandfather AND maternal grandmother, but we'll see come Sunday.

I'll do your questions seperately princess leonor, as not to get confused
First question: Amber Petty is Mary's best friend. She lives in Australia, and was a bridesmaid at her wedding (the one with the blonde hair if you've seen pics).
Second question: The godparents will be made public on Sunday, at 10:30 I believe, just before the christening begins.

And if you have any other questions, please post them and I'm sure myself or one of our fellow posters will answer you
