Why shouldn't it be possible? My mother is godmother of her youngest brother AND of the youngest son of said brother.

She can serve as godmother for all the siblings that the CPC wants her to :)

But itīs unsual to use the same again and again - even in "normal" danish families. You always try to share the honour with so many familiy member/friends as possible :)

I am confused.... So her name is Ingrid Ingrid?

Yes Mette Marit is a godmother of Christian.

I suppose there is no real reason why she couldn't be a godmother to one of the twins.

I would imagine, however, that the twins would get their own godparents that are not associated with their siblings.

No, just all her daughters have Ingrid as the last name of their middle names. Her full name was Ingrid Victoria Sofia Louise Margareta.

No, QMII is named: Margrethe Alexandrine Þorhildur Ingrid
Her sisters name are: Benedikte Astrid Ingeborg Ingrid and Anne-Marie Dagmar Ingrid.

You get the idea of using Ingrid as the last name (just like a surname, except it isnīt a surname).

Benedikte did the same with her daugthers: Alexandra Rosemarie Ingrid Benedikte and Nathalie Xenia Margareta Benedikte.

I donīt know if Anne-Marie did the same with her daugthers, but I donīt think so.

No she didn't. They're Greek anyway, so they only have one name to begin with.

By the way, thanks for clearing that up with the names. It's so confusing sometimes!

Do you think the twins will have the same godparents or will they have separate godparents?

Victoria is a godmother to Christian

Usually the websites Kongehuset and D.K.H. Kronprinsparret - D.K.H. Kronprinsparrets hjemmeside are updated shortly before and during the christening, so then it will be sure, but before the other two christenings, the godparents were already published by the press, but not officially on the websites of the DRF

I could imagine William, actually the name of one of Mary's great grandfather.

Mathilde/Mathilde - both a royal name, works in several languages, very popular in Denmark, and a great honor to the national anthem of Australia, Waltzing Mathilda. :)
Magnus - just imagine, Magnus and Mathilde, maybe a bit too matchy matchy.

Mary has also been used to danish girls. The older generation will pronounce it in a danish way but most pronounce Mary in the english way.

The english Mary would in french be Marie - but IMO Mary and Marie are 2 different names in Denmark.

I donīt think they will use Hilda as a nickname. Itīs too young for an old name to be recycled... Hmm, I hope you get the meaning of what Iīm trying to say

Name guesses:

For the princess:
Mathilde/Mathilda (I'm pretty sure of this one)
Caroline
Sophia
Louise/Louisa
Sarah
Freya/Freja
Emma
Laura
Liva
Liora

For the prince:
Magnus
William
Noah
Oscar
Oliver

Funny thing, Anne-mette Krakou suggests Mathilda and William. That would be my best guess as well, has been for the past days.

I would sincerely LOVE it if the prince was to have Elvis as one of his middlenames.

I'm gonna add Jacob and Amalie/a/Amelia/e
