Christian and Isabella both have Danish citizens as godparents.

Christian has Hr. Jeppe Handwerk as a godfather, and Isabella has Overlæge, dr.med. Christian Buchwald, Direktør, major Peter Heering and Hofjægermesterinde Marie Louise Skeel as godparents

That´s a good one, Sternchen. I didn´t even think of that

Is Prince Joachim a godparent to either child? Is he not a Danish citizen?

Joachim is a godfather to Christian But I didn't name him, as he is one of those who should take Danish Citizens as godparents, too, according to Fürstin Taxis, as he is payed by the state, too

Prince Joachim is godparent to Prince Christian

I just jumped to the conclusion that Fürstin Taxis by danish citizens meant common people like myself

But Mathilde and Mat(h)ilda are pronounced differently, aren't they?

Mathilde in Danish: Aussprache von Mathilde: Wie man Mathilde auf Französisch, Dänisch ausspricht
Matilda in Swedish (same pronounciation as Danish???) Aussprache von Matilda: Wie man Matilda auf Portugiesisch, Finnisch, Englisch, Schwedisch, Kroatisch, Rumänisch ausspricht

(At least they would be pronounced differently in German. In Germany Mathilde is the traditional way - i had a great-aunt, born about 1900, called Marie Mathilde. Mathilda and Matilda is quite fashionable at the moment in Germany, especially Hamburg. I believe it became known through the film "Matilda")

Whatever the children are named, all I hope is that they won't be named like some of the examples in this article:

Jack or Jaxxon | Baby Names | Pregnancy

Luckily Mary and Frederik have already proven that they choose classical and stylish names. Can you imagine if there were Prince Jaxxon Breeze Shiraz Armani Maffew and Princess Feebee D'Lilah Canduss Sierra-Leonie Antwonet...

two articles about naming the twins:
Emma, Valdemar, Lærke, Robert, Astrid, Elvis: Forsker: Det bliver ikke Elvis og Lærke - Danmark - BT.dk
Astrid and Valdemar Forsker: En Astrid eller en Valdemar - Danmark - BT.dk

Nothing in this articles which i really liked , besides William.
Emma is nice, but not regal enough.
Astrid is fine as a middle name, but there is an evil joke with "Arschtritt" in German ("Arschtritt" sounding very much like "Astrid" in German, "Arsch" means "arse" and "tritt" means "kick" (with foot))

In danish Mathilde/Matilde are pronounced the same and like wise Mathilda/Matilda, but certainly not Mat(h)ilde >< Mat(h)ilda.

Clark is the middle name of Marys mum and Madeleine and Daniel are if they choose Princess Madeleine and Prince Daniel for gp.

Yes, they are pronunced differently! They are two different names, even though they are similar to each other!

My point was that the name "Mathilde" (with an h) is the most used version of the two names, but when it comes to the name "Matilda", the version without an h is most common.

Good to see some of my suggestions on that Danish name list...

Marius (33) & Frederikke (28)
Oscar (19) & Mathilde (1)

So I stick by my suggestion of Oscar & Matilda (spelt the 'australian' and less common way)...Or the curve ball might be Olafur, the Icelandic similar sounding name to Oliver (5)...Matilda and Olafur is also another possibility...

Ok my list of possibilities:
1) Matilda and Oscar (my top pick, fits all criteria)
2) Adelaide* and Oscar
3) Matilda and Olafur
4) Adelaide and Olafur
5) Xenia and Oscar

*they still might consider Adelaide, another name with Australian associations, European origins and royal links and the home of Mary's bestie, Amber... :)

Okay, now I've got it.

I think there were just two royal "Mathilde" in Denmark. There was Caroline Mathilde (also written: Karoline Matilde or in UK Caroline Matilda) She lived and died in a very sad way. (also see: Caroline Matilda of Great Britain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ). But i have no idea how she is seen in Denmark. Does the person Caroline Mathilde or the royal name Mathilde have a positiv connotation?

There is also another Caroline Mathilde of Denmark 1912 – 1995, mother of Princess Elisabeth (see: Princess Caroline-Mathilde of Denmark - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )

While looking on wikipedia, i saw the name "Feodora" ( name of the sister of Queen Victoria and quite popular among her descendants). I really felt in love with that name But probably it is too unusual for Mary and Frederik.

Adelaide is a beautiful name. But what if they go with two other city names, Hobart and Sydney? Okay, I'm joking around way too much but we have at least two months to come up with suggestions. I do like some of the suggestions in this thread although I must stick with my original proposition, Elvis and Elvira.
