thyra and dagmar sound like lovely names for girls... what are the translations for them in enliglish?

what would be the exact title of the new prince(ss)? hereditary prince or just prince?

i doubt though they will put the name henrietta at the beginning. i think that on the question of names, the queen's name, if it's in the name, needs to go first than the other grandmother of the baby. i'm not sure if it's a rule, but the other royal couples certainly did it that way (even with christian, his name is christian valdemar henri john, so the royal name seems to go first normally).

Well if its a boy they might put Frederik in his list of names- just like Joachim has Christian in his list of names. Nikolai has Frederik & Felix has Christian in their list of names. I guess it keeps the continuation going if something were to happen to the one ahead of them in the list

I think Ingrid, Henrietta, and Margrethe are all in the running as middle names for a girl but not as a first name. We all kind of knew with Christian what his name would be because there's such a long-standing tradition of Frederik/Christian for future kings. Since there isn't such a precedent for girls, I think any "royal" sounding name is fair game if it hasn't already been used yet. If they have a boy, I have no idea!

Has anyone mentioned "Frederikke" if it's a girl???

How about

"Mary Frederikke Margrethe Ingrid"

That should cover just about all the bases!

I think there is a real formula to constructing a "royal name"...as someone has mentioned, Joachim has Christian as one his names, as do Nikolai (Frederik) and Felix (Christian)...so if something happen in the line of succession, they could use those name to rule under...for example, if God forbid something was to happen to Frederik and Christian...Joachim would be known as King Christian ??

So with the first child their is more leeway with subsequent names, but the first name HAS to be Christian (or Margrethe?)...That is probably why Mary was able to squeeze "John" in there somewhere, after her father and brother...

I think the formula is, using *Christian Valdemar Henri John* as an example is: essential, unusual, family, family...So if they had a girl it will follow the same formula, but a second boy might be: unusual, family, family, essential

So here are some combos:

The Prince:
Harald Joachim Aage Frederik (Prince Harry)
Wilhelm Henrik Abel Frederik (Prince Wil)

The Princess:
Margrethe Thyra Olympia Maria
Margrethe Thyra Matilda Maria
Margrethe Ingrid Dagmar Maria, etc

Possible pool of names for boys: Aage, Vilhelm, Harald, Johannes, Abel, Joachim, Holger, Henrik, Frederik

Possible pool of names for girls: Margrethe, Henrietta, Ingrid, Olympia, Maria, Dagmar, Matilda, Thyra, Ingeborg, Thorhildur

Sorry for such a long post...but I love names and especially hypothetical Danish royal ones

Matilda! Now there's a suggestion!

Although Australian sensibilities don't need to be considered for one moment as the baby's name is Denmark's business, 'Matilda' would delight most Aussies as much as 'Dagmar' might dismay them. I cringe at the thought of snide newspaper reports here about 'Princess Daggy'.

For those who don't know, and that's probably everyone who's not in Australia, New Zealand or the UK, 'Waltzing Matilda' is Australia's most famous national, and to many Aussies, most beloved song.

A nickname for Dagmar could be "Dasha"...maybe that's only in Slavic countries?

What's a Danish nickname for Dagmar? I really like it; I always think of the Dagmar necklace that all the daughters of Christian IX got when they married (Alexandra's is still worn by Queen Elizabeth, I think).

I personally hate the song 'Walzing Matilda' so I hope the baby doesn't get Matilda has one of the names. Somebody suggested Emma if Mary and Frederik are thinking of giving the baby a name that is used in both counties Emma would be a good choice.

I'm not wild about the song, but I don't hate it. And there's no denying that it's the most popular of all Australian songs.

I like the name Matilda/Mathilde, and there's already a royal with that same name, too.

Frederik and Mary did follow some kind of "formula" for Christian's name (I thought it was touching how they gave tribute to both grandfathers) but Valdemar is by no means unusual in Denmark. It is a very Danish name and has been the name of several Danish Kings.

For example Valdemar Sejr = Valdemar the Victorius
- married to a queen Dagmar.

With regards to Valdemar, I meant "unusual" in the fact that it is Old Danish...correct me if I am wrong, but Valdemar is not used much these days, expect maybe as a middle name and by the ruling elite...Check Jo of Palatine's post with the most popular names for Danish males in 2003...Not a Valdemar to be seen (post #50...I am not sure how to quote?)

In Denmark you do not really have a tradition for nick names derived from altering first name. You usually use first name without alterations.

I'm sure Adolf is an absolute no-no in all Scandinavian states as well as in Germany, even though the war is already 60 years behind us!
