I think Henrika is pretty unlikely. Too close to Henrik.

You are very good to me, lindaW.
I can only repeat what I said recently: all "my" names, I take them from our catholic day calendar, which showed on the 6th of December amongst Nicole and Dionysia also the name of HENRIKA. Thank you.

So stupid...i just read an online article about how Mary's twins will arrive before Christmas, but that is not the stupid part...some goose replied in the comments about how Frederik and Christian are the only allowable names of boys in the Danish royal family and if it's twin boys, they will have to be called: Frederik and Christian...Ummm, I don't think so! Frederik and Christian are the names of Danish kings, but there are a variety of names 'allowed' in the Danish royal family...

I think if it is twin boys, they might have Christian and Frederik as a 4th name, so in event that they have to rule, they would be, for example Thomas Vilhelm Donald Frederik, styled as King Frederik the whatever...or the other twin could be William Aage Oscar Christian, style as King Christian...and even though Christian will be his older brother's first name, I think it will be reused as a middle name, just because of the larger picture of Danish lineage and tradition...

has Victoria been suggested?

It's an Australian as well as a Scandinavian name ... and it would be very nice to acknowledge Frederik's close friend and Crown Princess colleague ...

I think if girls the twins will have royal names with an Australian flavour...like:

Matilda, Adelaide, Victoria, Dorothea - any combination of these...

I read that article too. Sometimes journalists should do their job a little bit better

If that argument that only Frederik and Christian are only to be used...Why does Frederik have a brother called Joachim? And why would Mary and Frederik name two or both of their sons 'Christian'...really?

Victoria would be a lovely name also considering how close Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden & Frederik are.

Well, it is a tradition in DK to name the sons in the line either Christian or Frederik. The first born will (of course) have the next king-in-line name and the spare(s) will have either Christian or Frederik. That´s the reason for both Joachim, Nikolai and Felix have either Christian or Frederik in their names.

Until Prince Christian was born, then it was Joachim and his sons who was next in line after CP Frederik.

I have a strange feeling that the names will be French-ish :)

I'm not into Danish names, so maybe I'll sugest names that are not common in Denmark, but as I think that the twins will be two boys, I would like them to be named Andre and Alexander, or maybe Johan, Peter, Lukas or August.
And if there will be one or two girls, I think they could choose different names, like Antonia, Camilla, Susanna, Renata, Harriet or Julia. And put Christian, Frederik, Mary and Joachim as middle names.
For grandparents, I think they will choose someone from the Greek Royal Family, since Pavlos and Alexia are godparent of Christian and Isabella. Probably Nikolaos will be chosen. And since they always choose some Crown Prince or Princess, I would love to see Maxima as grandmother and Guillaume as godparent.

Apropos.... its been a while since I visited this forum.

I was quite "shocked" to see the royal bump on CP Mary at GREMB. When is she to give birth, and how's her bealth?

Right, that rule only applies to the heir. So Christian's son, when he eventually has one, will be Frederik.
The twins could be given any names, but judging by the choice of Isabella (which surprised many people) the parents will choose names that are not widely known but have been used in the past and are technically traditional.

If it's only for the heir, it is non-neccesarily true that Christians son, if he has a daughter first, will be named Frederik.
When it comes to a daughter as an heir, there aren't any two names that are traditionally used.

I think so, too. Traditional, but more modern. I don't think they will use traditional Danish names as first name.
But we'll see It's just too long to wait until the baptism.

You're right, I should have said that assuming Christian's first-born child is a son, his name will be Frederik.

Does Denmark have equal primogeniture or is it merely "daughters inherit if there are no sons"? Because if it's the latter, if Christian has a daughter as his first-born, if his next child is a son, that son would inherit the throne and thus be named Frederik.

Denmark has equal primogenture as of this year.
