Holger - won't be used, the Reedtz-Thott's have a son named this and although it is one of Joachim's middle name (so obviously a family name) they won't reuse a name of somebody they already know...

Alexander/Alexandrine - possible middle name, but not really first name material, Mary has a nephew, Alexander Stephens (Jane's son) and Alexandra (Joachim's ex-wife)...might be awkward!

Rita - maybe, but only as a nickname if they call their girl Margarita...which I doubt they will do, bit too Iberian for Danish tastes...
So what if they choose names that others have, it my mean something t them. I can think of several familes that have used the same name in most of thier kids, two that I can think of is The British royal family and Astrid of Beligum. It might be the first name but its in the middle names. In my family Elizabeth has been used fo the last 6 or more generations, let alone being used as a middle name.

Mary and Fred will choose names that suit thier little family and consult the Queen on the names. They may be names nobody expected them to usd but they are using them, we might like them or we might not but we'll just have to get use to the names. (I said that t my family and friends when I named my first child)

Me personally, I think Sophie will be in there somewhere

Concerning nicknames, I sometimes heard, that nicknames take a lot of energey off from a person, when the full name is not pronounced, do you not also think so??

By the way, how do you find Gerwald, Folkart, Emming???

Actually it's not so uncommon in DRF. Joachim's youngest is Henrik and one of Felix's names is Henrik. Both Frederik & Joachim share the name Christian. All Margarethe, Benedikte & Anne-Marie share the name Ingrid.

I dont think those names are allowed in Denmark. Still I think they will go for names that are easily pronounced in danish

The names you suggested all seem way too old fashioned to be considered.

I cannot wait to hear the names of the twins however I have been trawling Wikipedia and have come up with quite a list of names I like:

Danish Royal Family
Boys: Benedict, Magnus, Eric, Abel, Otto,
George, Niels, Axel, Viggo, Olaf/ur or Michael

Girls: Helen, Sophie, Matilda, Katherina, Anna, Augusta,
Elisabeth, Amalia, Charlotte, Louise/a, Frederika or Astrid

Prince Henrik's family
Boys: Andre or Alfred
Girls: Emilie (similar to Amalie) or Clara

CP Mary's family
Boys: Peter, Andrew, Thomas or William
Girls: Annie (similar to Anna) or Catherine (similar to Katherina)


Possible family names that would be used as middle names coud be Joachim, Frederik/a, Mary, Andre

Princess Amalie would be nice as it is a family name on Margrethe's side and is similar to an Emilie on Prince Henrik's side and it is also modern. Princess Katherina would be nice as again it is on the royal side and very similar to a name on Mary's side. For the same reasons they might choose Anna.

In Denmark there is a list of pre-approved names for parents to select when naming thier children, they can also request permission for usage of a name if it does not appear on the list. This can certainly save children from the embarrassment of being named after something totally ridiculous as so many children here are today.

Yes, but that is to indicate who they are offspring of :) Just like a surname :) :) :)

In Denmark there is a list of approved names. If you want your child to be named a name outside the list you have to seek permission from the ministry. You can find the list here

http://www.familiestyrelsen.dk/navne/1/?no_cache=1

The boy names are the ones with the 10213 names and the girl names are the one with 12741 names. after that select the HTML to see it. hope this works

Wow. I didn't know that. Thank You.
I wish we had a similar list, so children couldn't be named Mercedes or Bubble etc.

What are Mary's nieces' names? Are they pretty names? It would be nice if Mary's side of the family were acknowledged ...

No, it´s only the DRF who does it that way and IIRC then it was only King Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid who has done it.

Oh, and Princess Benedikte did it with her daughters

I don´t know if the daughters of Queen Anne-Marie and King Konstantine has more names than Alexia and Theodora... It doesn´t say so on their homepage.

Mary's sibling's children are named:
Alexander
Erin
Kate
Michael
Madisson
Molly
Sherree
Michelle

I'm pretty sure, that they will not use any of these names. It is fine to name a child after his grandparents, greatgrandparents or uncle/aunts. But cousins should have different names to me. Similar or even same names are very confusing at family events.
So i think they will also not use the names of Benedikte's grandchildren or the names of Joachim's sons when it comes to first names.
(so no: Nikolai, Felix, Henrik, Friedrich Richard Oscar Jefferson, Ingrid Alexandra Irma Astrid Benedikte, Konstantin Gustav Heinrich Richard)

my guess is:
Sophie Elizabeth Margrethe Victoria
Charlotte Louise Mary Henrietta or Mathilde Louise Mary Henrietta

two boys:
William Frederik Henri Jan
Magnus Christian Andre Peter or Thomas Christian Andre Peter

Mixed:
Sophie Elizabeth Margrethe Victoria
William Frederik Andre Peter

with the boys I'm a bit insecure.

For boys I think:Axel, Carl, Johann, Valdemar, Michael, William, Georg, Andre, Erik


And girls: Dagmar, Alexandrine, Louise, Anne, Caroline, Josephine, Sophie, Thyra*, Charlotte, Julia

I think it'd be really adorable if they made Prince Nikolai a godfather to one of the twins, as Frederik is his godfather.
