That's interesting - why is Brian a bad guy name? From a movie or something?

It must have been originally. For years, there has been a saying 'he's a Brian' - usually meaning a special type who is from a 'low social class'; it may also mean a person without much schooling, etc. It's just one of those things which suddenly appears, grows and gains force and by now it's a name that many people will seek to avoid.

It is called "Kevinismus" or "Chantalismus" in Germany. The names, people try to avoid, are Kevin, Justin, Chantal or Jacqueline (mostly writen satirical "Schakkeline") etc. .

It is really sad for the boys and girls, who already have one of those names.

In France, names like Brian, Kevin, Steven, Megan, Alison... etc. are very much associated with the 90's french people without much education and who would name their children after US sitcoms, soap operas or boys bands- the only cultural references they are supposed to know, while they don't speak a single english word.
I was surprised that the same thing occures in countries like Germany or Denmark, whose people tend to speak a much better english than the French do in general.

Back to the topic, I think that this time they will go for typical danish and australian names.

It would be cute that if one of the twins are a boy, they'd name him William & make Prince William his godfather :)

I'm very fond of names as Amalie/Amalia/Amélie (I'd love a Princess Amélie), Mathilda, Caroline, Jacqueline, Josephine or Daisy (how cute would Princess Daisy be? :] in honor of the Queen ;]) a girl.
For a boy I like the names William, Andreas, Joseph, Jonathan, Carl & Elias.

I have a strange feeling that they'll use French-ish names this time :]

Hans would be very beautiful and traditional name and hopefully if there will be boy(s) then at least one boy name will be Hans. For girl I still hope names Dagmar and Frederikke.

I don't know if they would, but Princess Ingrid is Ingrid-Alexandra formally. If Mary and Frederik want to name their possible daughter Ingrid they should.

In general I never knew it was known for that, to me it has always been the car company which was named after the owners daughter. To me it will always be a tacky horrible name and a very good car company.
To me it's a horrible name.

I would guess it is quite normal to have more than one child called the same name in the family. Sometimes people name their children after their parents or an uncle/aunt you name it.

Ingrid is a lovely name IMO.

Exactly why I don't think they'll name a daughter Ingrid ;]
IMO it would be cheesy with two cousins with the same name :)

Perhaps you should send a letter a day to the DRF and suggest the names

Responding to Lumutqueen's Henrik comment:

I think the two Henrik's are not an issue, only because I think as Prince Henrik snr was not 'born' a Henrik (the French Henri) he still might be referred to as Henri 'behind closed doors'...and I am not even sure if his name is officially legally changed by deed poll to Henrik? So with the birth of Joachim and Marie's son and naming him Henrik actually set a precedent for the name now to be included as part of the official pool of royal names, because correct me if I am wrong, but there have been no Henrik's in the history of the Danish royal family before Prince Henri(k)?

And to Sternchen:

I have done that previously, sent a letter of name suggestions to the family...I got a generic response about, the family thanks you for your interest and all the best...Needless to say, they didn't use my suggestions...I suggested Henrietta as a first name, and even Arabella and Matilda, Olafur, Xenia, Anneke way back in 2007 before Isabella's birth...So I decided not to do it this time because they never listen to me anyway

Oh lord, they are...interesting names.

I've never heard of the name 'Bibiana' until now. Perhaps for good reason

Enough of anything 'Henrik' I think...lol. I thought one was enough myself, let alone having variations considered.
