If they choose Mathilda, I think they will use the danish name: Mathilde :)

The female version of Frederik is Frederikke :)

How do you know that Frederik isn't going to name his son Nicholas? What's wrong with the name Nicholas? Just because he's a danish prince, his country isn't going to go into meltdown if he chooses a name not Danish sounding, or are they Muhler, FasterB would you be angry if Frederik chose to name his son Nicholas?

So maybe it's nice to include him in the circle of royal godparents too?)
Edward is godfather to one of Joachims boys, can't remember which one.
William and Harry are IMO out of the question, as they have no close obvious connection to any royals other than the Greeks.

No, I wouldn´t get angry, I would perhaps have a little laugh about the coincidence with Prince Nikolai, but only in a positive way

No, I wouldn´t get angry. They are, after all, an international family, so their names have to be easy to pronounce outside Denmark. Even if I´m hoping for Hans (King Hans of Denmark is one of my ancestors) I´m certain that they won´t choose it, because it´s diffucult to pronounce outside DK

Yes, thank you FasterB. It bugs me too when names are not written correctly. Mostly it bugs me in the Sweden-Forum, when it comes to Madeleines name. I'm always like this when I read Madeline or Madeleen or something entirely else. And FredriCk isn't much better. It may be the same name (I know there is an version with ck in Germany), but it's just not the name of the danish CP. Just like Mary isn't Marie. ESPECIALLY not in Denmark.

Just a thought; what if the twins were a boy and a girl and they're names would be Vilhelm and Victoria? The godparents could be Prince William and Catherine Middleton and Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel. :)

As far as I know the danish royals don't have a surname.

Besides from the titel they arranged "de Montpezat":

The prince consort was Henri de Montpezat before he got married. (I hope the spelling is in order.)

He lost the surname at the marriage.

But then - perhaps a midlife crisis - he wanted his children to be "de Montpezat's".

And in some way or the other they are count de Montpezat.

But according to his first biography he never was a nobleman.

As I remember the book there was some other part of the family who could have been nobility but somehow wasn't because a paper was not delivered. But even if this part of the family had been noble - he himself would never have been noble anyway.

I dunno... It was just a thought. They are a young couple (I kind of wish they would participate in the events with other young royals in the future) and there is a connection with the Danes if only a slight one (Frederik -> Margrethe -> Ingrid -> Margareta). Mainly I was just thinking William because the name Vilhelm (and other derivatives of it) is one of the names regularly seen in their family trees. And the name Vilhelm fits in nicely with Victoria (or Viktoria), another traditional name.

well if they chose the name vilhelm, or other spelling variants of the same name, then a more logical godfather than prince william would be wilhelm alexander, which is quite friendly with frederik and mary. as for victoria and daniel, i can definitely see one of them being godparent!
but the goparents are known in advance or it is like the names, known during the christening itself?

No, they don´t have a surname, but in the case of the three princesses, Ingrid and Frederik used "Ingrid" as a sort for surname. To bind the three princesses together to show who they are daugthers of.

Several people have mentioned the Crown Princess of Sweden as a potential godparent.
Is that a possibility?
I thought that since she is already godmother to Prince Christian, she couldn't serve as godmother to one of his siblings?
