Princess Marie would be a godmother other than that I don't know the names of her friends or Frederik's friends.

For girls, I'm still rooting for Thyra and Alexandrine.
The only boy name I love from the DRF is Valdemar.

Boy: Either Christian or Frederik, that's almost a certainty.
I don't see why that's almost a certainty? Nor do I recall there being a precedent to call other male children either Frederik or Chrsitian if the heir of the heir (or monarch) is already named either of the two.

Clearly, they aren't going to name another child Christian, and I'm not so sure they would name the other child Frederik. I think it very unlikely.

As for godparents, I think Princess Marie and Princess Maxima would be likely candidates as godmothers. Her Brother John as godfather, too. And perhaps either the Prince of Oranje or the Duke of Västergötland as possible candidates.

I hope they end up with another boy and girl, so its even. Although, it would be adorable to see Christian with 3 little sisters!

I like Carl and Axel for boys, and Alexandrine and Ingrid for girls.

Ok, let's see:
1 ) two girls: Margaret ( to be traditional and to make Granny-Queen happy ) and Charlotte ( because i don't think there's none in the danish royal family )
2 ) two boys: Alexander and Edward ( theses are really regal names, i think )
3 ) a boy and a girl: Alexander and Charlotte
As for godparents: Felipe and Letizia for one of the babies and Wilhelm-Alexander and Maxima for the other.

I volunteer as the work as godparent, it dont involve that i actually have to do something, right:)?

To be serious, maybe crownprincess Victoria gets another godchild or maybe its the first godchild in royal cirkles for prince Daniel.

Does Mary have siblings? One of them can in such case become a godparent.

I think he meant that with a boys either Frederik or Christian will be included in the names not as the meain name. At last this was always done in the danish RF

Crown Princess Victoria is already godmother to Christian, Daniel is a maybe.
Mary had three siblings, John, Jane and Patricia. Patricia is godmother to Christian.

I'm hoping for a Leonora but I'm guessing that won't ever happen as the princess by that name isn't exactly remembered for only good stuff, even called a traitor by some as she and her husband conspired with the swedish queen.

However I'm pretty sure it will be two names that are known in both english and danish. Ingrid is possible I suppose, Queen Ingrid was very loved in denmark but the name is concidered pretty oldfashioned here, even if they can make fashion themselves.

Godparents: Princess Marie of Denmark, Princess Nathalie of SWB, Princess Máxima of the Netherlands, Prince Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, Prince Daniel of Sweden, Princess Madeleine of Sweden, Prince Carl-Philip of Sweden, Jane Donaldson and John Donaldson. For me they are all possible candidates

I think P.Marie will be one of the godparents for sure. others, really I don't know, but it'd be nice if the newlywed P.Daniel will be godfather of a royal baby, as future Prince Consort (if I'm not wrong CP Victoria is Christian godmother).

Names for Boys:
Frederik, Michael, Alexander, Georg,
so difficult...DRF has such a little range of male names...

Names for Girls:
Mathilda, Emma, Sofie, Marie/Mary, Margarethe, Elizabeth, Frederikke

Christian as heir had 5 royal godparents, Isabella only had 2.
If the twins are sharing godparents, I would imagine they would have 4 maybe 5 royal godparents.

I was completely shocked to see the word 'twins' on the announcement...that is until I thought of Mary's age. She's 37 - a little bit older than most moms-to-be anymore, so twins aren't too surprising when you think about it.


Anyway, names....hhmmm...I'm almost 100% certain the twins will be fraternal.

Boys:
Erik Axel Frederick William
Georg Alexander Daniel Oscar

Girls:
Catharina Marie Renée Victoria
Elina Elisabeth Lovisa Mary

The godparents would likely include one or more of the following: Prince Joachim, Princess Marie, Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel, the Duke of Brabant, Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece, a non-royal family friend or two, Queen Margrethe and John Stewart Donaldson.

Actually Isabella has six godparents: The Duchess of Brabant, Princess Alexia of Greece and Denmark, Nadine Johnston, Christian Buchwald, Peter Heering and Marie Louise Skee

If you are commenting on my post, I said Isabella had two royal godparents, Christian has 5.

ahh, okay, I misread. Sorry. You're right. I guess it makes since, being that Christian is the heir; I'm pretty sure if it'd been the other way around, say if Isabella had been born first, she would've been the one with 5 royal godparents, and Christian, 2.

I am not sure why people think that Daniel should be a godparent other than it would seem nice since he is a new royal.

From the start, it looks like Frederik and Mary have picked people who are personal friends and/or families. And in the case of Christian, those who have the personal connection as well as those who might guide Christian in his future role.

How does Daniel figure into that? For all we know they have met Daniel as least two or three times officially (at QM 70'th birthday and the wedding activities). Of course they could have met in private that is certainly possible. But enough to become a godfather?
