Since Mary's parents are both scottish (which means she's actually scottish, not australian) I'd love to see some scottish names!! Maybe not for a first name but somewhere in there. Also, I love old norse names.

And here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legendary_Danish_kings it caught my eye that there has been a king called Frodo in Denmark!

For a boy they might consider adding Hamish, Aidan/Aodhán and for a girl I suggest Eilidh, Isobel, Lilias/Lileas, Mairead (Scottish form of Margaret).

For more conventional names I'd suggest

For a girl: Josephine Thyra Dagmar Henrietta

For a Boy: Sigfrid Dalgleish Aidan Frederik

Henrietta is Mary's mother's name and Dalgleish is Mary's father's second name.

By the way, does anyone know why Mary's maiden name is Donaldson? I am pretty sure is has originally been MacDonald (Mac meaning 'son').

AFAIK it's the English version of MacDonald which was forced upon the Scots after the British troops succeeded over the Scotish legitimate's troops at Culloden in 1746. IIRC those who changed the name to Donaldson were considered loyal to the Crown. Thus said, I'm so glad that princess Mary was not born a "MacDonald" - just think of what the media would have done of this name!!!

If the child is a girl, I would like to see the name Thyra in there somewhere. I think it's a gorgeous name and it has ties to the RF. Maybe Alexandra Thyra Ingrid Margrethe or Thyra Alexandra Ingrid Margrethe.

I wish I knew more Danish names because I really don't like most of the names that have been posted for a girl. The only thing I can hope is they dont have a girl because I don't think any of the names are beautiful enough for a Princess, IMO. I hope they follow the other royal houses if they have a girl, Ingrid Alexander, Amelia and Alexis, these are beautiful names. I don't mean this to offend anyone just my personnel opinion.

I don't agree with you, Catharina. My parents are not Australian-born but I was born here, and, more importantly, raised here. I'm most definitely Australian, first and foremost.

If it's a girl, I'll suggest Dagmar to honor the recent Czarina they reburied in Russia.
If it's a boy, you know the tradition of name skiping in Denmark.

Now, kidding a little, what about these dramatic names like Ragnarok for a boy or Valhalla for a girl? Very retro-viking, could start a whole new trend!

Rebafan, try this link for girls' names http://www.babyklar.dk/artikler/pigenavne.htm and this for boys' names http://www.babyklar.dk/artikler/drengenavne.htm.
This should be the lists of approved names and you can just click the individual letters to see the selection. At a quick glance it seems to comprise a lot of old-fashioned names as well which I don't know anybody who are named today - but of course they may reappear.
I don't know whether for example a name like Alexis is 'natural' to Holland; it wouldn't be in Denmark; I would personally prefer a name which has relevance to Frederik's and Mary's own roots.

I agree, Polly.

My father is foreign born and my mother is the daughter of European's herself. Speaking as someone with such strong European descent, does this mean that I am not Australian, though I was born and raised here? I think not.

Like you, I'm an Australian first and foremost and recognise within myself the values and beliefs that are attributed to our way of life.

For anyone to say that Mary was not Australian is very much the innacurate statement because she most certainly was. An Australian of European descent.

First, foremost and above all else

In Denmark there are very restrivted rules of what you are alowed to call your children. If its a special name you have to ask the state if its ok.
You simply just cant choose names as "Prince" "Apple" and so on like you can in the states

You would have to pursuade the Minister for Family and Consumer Affairs first ... and then the Royal Family.

I not sure which would be harder. *lol*

Some wildcard names they might choose:

For the Prince: Viggo, Gustav/Gustaf, Sebastian, Rupert, Georg, Olaf/Olav, Arthur

For the Princess: Isabella, Lucinda, Adelaide, Beatrix, Martha, Alice, Annika, Eloise, Xenia, Zara

(Some are names of actual past Royalty and others just sound like they should be )

Jane might be a possible middle name for a girl after Mary's sister and it does sound similar to John...so it might be a bit of a theme...for example:

Christian Valdemar Henri John and

Magrethe Dagmar Henrietta Jane (I don't know, merely speculating)
