There was 226 Adolf's in 2005 declining with 19 to 207 in 2006. My guess is they are older and dying out fast.

I think it is becoming more widespread; a few years ago I wouldn't have believed it either, but it seems it is coming back, like everything else.
If you use the link MargretheI has provided in her post (#26) and try 'Valdemar' for a 'mand', you can see there are more than 1700 i 2006.

Does anyone know how the name "Aage" is pronounced? I think it is a really odd pronunciation (to us non-Danes) given how it looks...like you might assume it is "ayj" or "ahg"...but I have a feeling it is more like "ord" or "oh-ah" or something...please tell me, Danes!!!

If it is a boy, he will have to have Christian in there somewhere in case he becomes the heir. I think he will also get Frederik.
Maybe

i'm all for following tradition! yet Mary and Frederik did a great job with Christian's name of combining traditional names with 'modern' ones. i haven't got any clues as to what they can name a baby boy apart from Jane1's suggestion, but if a princess is more i agree with most folks on Dagmar, Alexandra and Henrietta. i prefer the name Elisabeth though, spelled with an 's.' naming her Margrethe would be nice too.

As Gustaf Adolf was born in 1882, more than 50 years before another Adolf became notorious for his murders of jews and other innocent bystanders, I think we can accept his name. But nowadays IMHO that name is still burnt ground, especially as there is no close relative with this name (while you surely can find other Adolfs in the family-tree of the Schleswig-Holsteins with their different branches).

Okay, here are my suggestions:

Girl: Caroline Frederikke Henrietta

Boy: Viggo Alexander Frederik (yes, Viggo was used in the family before, it is one of the names of Prince Knud's son Ingolf.)

At this stage I say she is carrying a boy but I might change my mind later on when she shows more tummy.

Its difficult to explain in writing: The double A really means - the old-fashioned way of writing was two As. The sound is not an A - it's more rounded; the best way I can describe is that it is somewhere between the sound 'ohhh' you make when you are surprised and an A. In Danish, we write 'hhhh' for 'ohhh' when indicating surprise etc.

The 'g' is not too pronounced, not completely a j sound either.
The pronounciation is probably somewhere between your suggestions 'ayj' and 'oh-ah'. (Sorry, hope I didn't just make you more confused! Hope someone will come to your rescue with a better explanation )

Aage is IMO a very oldfashioned name; my father has it as part of a double name and so did my grandfather. I would never choose it for one of my own as I never thought it to be a 'pretty' name.

I agree, this one will be a boy and the next a girl

None of us really would - as always, if it's a healthy child that's all that matters. The rest we're doing her is just fun. Hopefully, the parents to be don't read this ; it can be quite annoying hearing about how a child of the opposite sex would be more in demand than the one(s) you already have (know this from experience as I have three of the same sex)
