How is the name Thyra pronounced in Denmark? Is it TY-RAH or THIGH-RAH or TEAR-AH?

According to google.translate it's pronounced Tu-rah (in Danish).

As for names, I don't think we'll see Ingrid, Henrietta or Margrethe used at all since they are Isabella's middle names.
That may not matter. If you look at Queen Margrethe's names and those of her sisters, you'll see that Ingrid is the last of each of their 4 names. So it's a possibility that one of Isabella's (or Christian's) names could be used for a sibling.

I am sticking with my original pool of first names:

GIRLS: Matilda, Adelaide, Victoria, Xenia, Charlotte, Amelia...

BOYS: Oscar, Olafur, Johan, William (Wilhelm), Harald (Harry), Thomas...

Not even going to begin to speculate on middle names or order...too hard!

Yes, but in that case it´s used as a surname

Knud would be awesome, they should bring back Knud.

(Male names are a little limited in the Danish Royal family. Unless you want to go old school)

Girls:
Emma
Sophie
Amalie
Charlotte
Louise
Jane as a middle name, to honor her sister
Patricia again as a middle name to honor her sister.
Juliana

We might see Mary's sister Jane or her brother John as godparents. Those are really the only sure bets I can think of right now.
I'm sory but Magnus, Canut, Knut are not old school, how much older would you like to go.

Christian? as in their eldest son's name? two prince Christians of Denmark, interesting thought there. It is as odd as someone suggesting Nicholas, considering Joachim's oldest son is Nicholas.

Canut is the english form of Knud. So it´s only Knud that will be used ifthey choose to

Muhler is right here: A son will with 99% have either Christian or Frederik as one of the names, not as the first name.

The oldest son of Prince Joachim is not Nicholas, but Nikolai.

Names:

Charlotte
Ingeborg (Ingrid would have been a possibility if there wouldn't be an Ingrid in Norway already. That's why I choose Ingeborg. But maybe just as a middle-name. Or they'll choose Ingrid as a middle-name regardless of the norwegian Ingrid? Could be possible, too)
Elisabeth
Carolina
Sophia
Amalia
Dagmar
Emma
Josephine
Jane
Patricia

My bet on the first names are Charlotte and Josephine. The others would be middle-names.

If my guess is wrong and there will be at least one boy, my guess is:

Magnus
Knud
Philip
Maximilian



I think Daniel is a real big possibility, seeing as he's the husband of the woman who Frederik thinks of as a sister in some ways. The Scandinavian royals are very close, especially Haakon, Frederik and Victoria. They're doing a lot of official things together. And I'm pretty sure, Haakon, Mette-Marit, Frederik and Mary already knew Daniel for a long time before the marriage/engagement. And we're not talking about an heir here. So it could very well be Daniel among the godparents of one twin. I think it's more likely than Madeleine or Carl-Philip.

Other godparents may be Marie and Joachim. Or one (or more) of Marys siblings. Or Maybe Märtha of Norway? One of Willem-Alexanders brothers? Could be. I mean, the twins are not that high ranked than Christian, so they could have godparents of other royal houses who are not that high ranked either. Or Mary and Frederik choose some non-royal friend. Could be, too.
In that reasoning, Ingrid being out because of Ingrid-Alexandra of Norway, much of your list would be out.
Ingrid- Ingrid Alexandra of Norway
Elisabeth-daughter and heir to the heir of the throne of Belgium
Sophia- well Sofia infanta of spain, younger daughter of crown prince
Amalia-Princess Catharina-Amalia, more commonly known as Amalia, daughter of crown prince Wilhelm-Alexander of Norway
Emma-there is an Emma out there some where, whose I can't remember
Magnus- Sverre-Magnus of Norway

I am not saying the names would not be used again, but if you are ruling out Ingrid because of Norway, the others should be ruled out as well.

I like Charlotte because it's Danish and English. As a boy's name I'm really into Oscar although I prefer Victoria to chose it if she gets a boy.
Just because Isabelle is popular now, doesn't make it modern. Isabella of Spain (whole Christopher Columbus, was also mother of Henry VIII's first wife). Ysabel is from the bible. Isabelle is from Arthurian legend (mother of Tristan). It was stated by Mary and Frederick they found the name in the royal family tree some where. Just because the name is popular in modern times, doesn't make it old by any means.

Emma Tallulah, Leah Isadora aren't exactly traditional. Daughters of Martha-Louise of Norway.

Isabella, more modern than traditional, last person in danish history to have that name was in the 1500's.

Alexia and Ariane of Netherlands, neither has a traditional background.

Nikolai and Felix of Denmark, both because their parents liked the names.

Princess Eléonore of Belgium & Prince Emmanuel of Belgium not traditional was chosen because he fitted the el names of the other children.
Nicholai is just another spelling for Nicholas, the Danish spelling, Nicholas is a royal name.

Alexia is the female variation of Alexander,it was stated she was named for her father who is usually refered to as Alexander.

Eleonore is a variation of Eleanor (England and france) and Leonor (daughterof the crown prince of spain, and others in spanish history)

emanuel may not have a royal history, but is a biblical name, another name given to Jesus Christ, pretty old and traditional.

Isabelle goes back to the bible, so as many times as you keep repeating Isabelle is modern not traditional, get over it, it is old.

Isabella is an old name, but it is a popular name right now, thus making seem more modern.

As far as what they name the twins, I hope they surprise us all with something we'd never expect, but in a good way. I think I'll wait to actually give the names more thought when they're born. It will be much easier when we know whether we're name boys or girls, lol.

1; It might be another "form", but they named him Nikolai not Nicholas.
2; Again female variation, but they chose to name her something unusual and not traditional like Alexandra.
3; Again, variation doesn't matter when they chose to name her Eleonore which has no royal background, other than the possible variations.
4; It might have been a biblical name, but I doubt that was the reason behind why it was chosen.
5; Like i've said, it's more modern than traditional, and she's called Isabella not Isabelle.

Several medieval English queens were named Isabella.
I think of it as a classic name that's been around forever, like Margaret or Elizabeth.

Many of the names on the popular list are old. Hmm I wonder why, perhaps because people are tending to go back towards traditional names. Face it darling, Isabella is now and forever will be traditional. And variations do matter. A Danish prince is not going to name his son Nicholas, it is English, he is going to name him the the Danish version. It is the same name, just how you pronounce it. Same with Eleonore or Leonor or Eleanore. How do you think the spanish people would have felt if their future queen was Eleanor, and english name, instead of a Spanish name. (...)

Muhler is right here: A son will with 99% have either Christian or Frederik as one of the names, not as the first name.

The oldest son of Prince Joachim is not Nicholas, but Nikolai.
Yes but what is the Danish spelling of Nicholas? Nikolai. Do you really think the crown prince of Denmark is going to choose the english spelling of a name for his son, even if it is his third or fourth child? not to mention the fact it is the English spelling of his nephew's name? Not likely.

I don't doubt Frederick is likely to be included, but Christian I highly doubt. It is tradition for First son to have Christian or frederick, nothing about younger sons.

I am not the one who stated both Canut and Knud, I was simply replying to a post which had both in their list.

Actually, in DK then Nicholas and Nikolai are two different names. Yes, they have the same origin, but it´s considered as two names.

Will you please spell the name of our Crown Prince right? It´s not Frederick, but Frederik!

As you may know then the name of Prince Joachim is: Joachim Holger Waldemar Christian.
The names of his oldest sons are: Nikolai William Alexander Frederik and Felix Henrik Valdemar Christian.

It´s for safety reasons that the sons get either Christian or Frederik in there name, so they can take over the throne IF the heir dies either before ascending the throne or withour children.

I was thinking about names lately and I don't think they will go to much on the traditional danish names side. I think it will be something more international what with half of the twins family being non-danish (and a french aunt and grandpa too, even if they're danish by now ).

That said, I like these names for the twins today (as first names. I don't think about middle names, because I don't like the concept of middle names. They are so needless IMO):

Girls:

Mathilda (international known, the first two letters from Mummy Mary and also a little nordic touch)

Boys:

Tristan: I read this name a few posts earlier when someone made a comment about Isabellas name and I instantly had a special feeling about this name regarding Mary's and Fred's twins. I would like on possible boy to be a Tristan.


And why not choose a variation from one of the family trees names like it obviously happened in the Netherlands with Alexia and Willem Alexander? It wouldn't be surprising because they have found the name Isabella the same way. Here are the names I would like:

Girls:

Magdalena (from Sophie Magdalene von Brandenburg-Kulmbach. Queen of Denmark from 1730 - 1746).

Note: Magdalena & Mathilda would sound so nice if there will be twin girls.

Charlotte (from Charlotte Friederike, Herzogin zu Mecklenburg. The first wife of Christian VIII)

Carolina or Carola (from Caroline Amalie von Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg. Second wife of Christian VIII and Queen of Denmark from 1839 - 1848)

Louisa (from all those Louise's on the family tree. I seems like this was a very common name for one of the daughters of all of thos Frederik's and Christian's )

Boys:

It's a little difficult with boys because of the heaps of Christian's and Frederik's out there. But there are also a lot of Knut's, Erik's, Sven's, Harald's and Waldemar's out there and I really like Knut and Erik. I also like the name Niels which is also present on the family tree. There are also a few Karl's but I see that name more of a possibility for a son of Victoria & Daniel instead of Mary & Frederik.

Godparents:

I still have a feeling about Prince Daniel to be one of the godparents. And maybe a few other second line royals such as Märtha Louise or one of Willem Alexanders brothers or sisters-in-law. Or maybe Prince Edward and/or Sophie? Do the danish royals have close contact to the english royals? In that case maybe Prince William or Prince Harry would be nice too. Harry does like children a lot and William will be a married man soon and start the same lifestyle as all his married colleagues (and he will be CP one day himself. So maybe it's nice to include him in the circle of royal godparents too?) Oh, and Princess Madeleine would be nice if they really chose Magdalena as a girls name, because than godmother and godchild share the same name, even if they use different variations.

Others than that I think it will not be much royality in the god-parents circle. I have a feeling that it will be mostly close friends and family (how old are Marys nephews/nieces? Are they a possibility?)
