According to the German wikipedia entry there are swedish forms for Susan: Sanna, Susanne or Susanna.

Susanne ? Wikipedia

But I think that if Susan will be part of the name, than the original form Susan. Christian has the name John (for his maternal grandfather) and Mary and Frederik had also the opportunity to give him the name Jens (which is according to the German wiki the danish form of John).

Johann ? Wikipedia

O'Hara is a beautiful name. It's very feminine, original, commands remembrance and has a Hollywood grace to it...

I can also see Mary naming a daughter Violet.

O'Hara will sound weird in Danish IMO.


Speaking of O'Hara, I think that Scarlet/t could be a possible name since it almost is pronounced the same on Danish & English.

The name Rose for a girl would also be cute & a possibility :).

I do adore the names Michael & Andreas for a boy.

That are beautiful names for danish kids. I read Top-20-list of names of european countries a while ago and I think those names were on it. So the kids would have modern names. And those names flow beautiful with Christian. It would be a nice choice.

I was also thinking about Holger for a while. How possible would that be? Is Holger a modern name in Denmark? I know it's a well-known middle-name in the DRF so it would also be a royal name if it is a modern name.

Mary's godson is called Holger - the Reedtz-Thott's second son. I'm not sure if Frederik and Mary would go for Holger, as it is more a Danish name than an 'international' name, which both Christian and Isabella are.

Godparents (royals) for one:
Prince Carl-Phillip of Sweden
Prince Phillipos of Greece
Alexander Johannsmann
Infanta Christina of Spain
Princess Claire of Belgium

for the second one:
Princess Nathalie zu-Sayn -Wittgenstein-Berleburg
Princess Theodora of Greece
Prince Laurent of Belgium
Prince Felix of Luxembourg
Princess Madeleine of Sweden

Other: friends or some first cousins of Mary

Did Princess Maria-Olimpia of Greece have confirmation already? If yes, why not she? (She is already 14 years old)

I would like them to have a Princess Louise and a Princess Charlotte.

As godparents, maybe Máxima, she seemed to be having fun with Mette-Marit and Mary at Victoria's wedding, and again at Nikolaos's wedding. Or Madeleine, or Marie, for women and maybe Gustav or Willem-Alexander for men.

Yeah that was what I thought too :)

Holger is not very popular as other "old" names, but I think that in a couple of year it'll be very popular. But as JessRulz pointed out, CP Mary's godson is named Holger & it isn't very international (:

My choices:
Princess Anna-Sophie Ingrid Mary
Princess Thyra Ingrid Henriette Margarete
Princess Christina Ingrid Erika Emma
Princess Anna Elenora Ingrid Mary
Princess Ingrid Dagmar Mary Elizabeth
Princess Elenora Elizabeth Sophia Mary

Prince Erik Valdemar Christian Oluf
Prince Johan Christian Valdemar Christoffer

Godparents: Caroline Heering, One of the Norwegian Royals, Marie-Chantal of Greece, some of Henri's family?, maybe Amber petty and Mary's brother or sisters. I question Maxima, but it is possible. Mary however, seems to see the Norwegian Royals more than the Dutch. Maybe Daniel Westling?

Michael is also the name of one of Mary's nephews...Patricia's son...

Patricia has: Michael, Maddison, Molly
Jane has: Alexander, Kate, Erin
John has: Cherie, Michelle

They won't use Louise because of all of those mentioned above, as well the Wessex's Louise and friend Helle Reedtz-Thott has an Eloise (as well as Ludvig and Holger)...I am sticking with all my suggestions made earlier...And as for godparents, I did forget Madeleine...

I think it will be:
Princess Marie
Princess Madeleine
Princess Maxima

Prince Daniel
Prince Carl-Philip ?
John Donaldson (jnr.)

Me again...Seeing Mary and Fred at the Greek wedding made get the feeling that perhaps they will have FIVE children...Just like Anne-Marie and her son, Pavlos...I think they will have twin girls and squeeze in another before Mary turns 40 (or in her 40th year, late 2012?) and it will be a boy...B-G-G-G-B....bookend boys! They can do it and I hope they do...

Christian, Isabella, Matilda, Adelaide and Olafur?

The fact that the Wessex's have a Louise would make no difference to the name of Mary and Frederiks children.
Princess Claire of Belgium has a daughter named Princess Louise, Princess Letizia has a daughter named Sofia as well as a mother-in-law with the same name.

If they want to named their child Louise or Christopher or any other name that someone else has they can.

May I ask why so many people believe in the name Olafur?
The name is not popular (IMO it sounds more Icelandic than Danish) or anything like that here in Denmark, so I'm just curious :)

Not so many people, just me I love the name because of it's island feel (Iceland/Greenland/Faroe) and Fred did once say they might use a name from there...And it sounds similar to the popular English name, Oliver...So it might get a look-in...And a name doesn't have to be popular for them to use it, but a name might BECOME popular because they use it :)

So sorry, I keep on about it, but I am hoping Mary and her staff visit these boards to get a general consensus and hopefully I've planted a seed...

Yes, but Astrid's daughter is a Luisa Maria (as a first name) so there is a difference, too. Mary and Fred may employ this tactic (using Marie or Maria) but I don't see this happening, as there are already Princesses named Marie and Mary.

Girls :
Sophie Charlotte Alexandrine Renée
Caroline Mathilde Alexandrine Renée
Louise Helene Alexandrine Renée

Boys :
William Erik Knud André
Carl Axel Knud André
George Philip Knud André

I agree they won't go with the really antiquated names even if they are tradtional Danish names.

Girls
Caroline
Emma
Charlotte

Boys
Johan
Andre
Miles

I might think of some more

Godparent Marie,Maxima,Williem Alexander,Mary's other siblings Patrica and John-and I'm sure others we will never think of.

I'm guessing each twin will have their own set of godparents so that's alot of people to decide on.

Someone brough up Susan,Susanne or Susanna any of them would be pretty for a girl as well

I don't know if that is common elsewhere but in the states surnames are becoming quite common as first names.

I am beginning to think whatever they use I will be disappointed...I wished they had used 'Arabella' instead of Isabella, which I suggested in previous posts because of it's royal connections and links to Scotland, while still sounding Danish (sort of)...So while I love suggesting 'unusual' names like Matilda, Adelaide, Xenia, Anneke....I have a feeling they won't do it and will call them something popular, common and used by other contemporary royals, names like Sophie and Louise....yawn!
