I spent some time going through the danish royal family tree, I was trying to look at some of the obscure branches and I found a couple of names that I think would be very nice and actually modern for the new lilliprinz and lilleprinsess:

Charlotte Rose
Juliana Rose
Caroline Mathilda

Maximlilian Joseph
Carl Johan
Axel William

I think it is possible that they use Charlotte and Maximilian (Charley and Max)...because those names are popular with non-royals and the names have royal precedents...Love Prince Max and Princess Charlotte...my only concern is would they want a Christian and Charlotte, two Ch- names...Maybe they'll go with the twin cliche of Max and Matilda?

Maixmilian is a name strange to the danish ear, so I highly doubt that they will choose that name

Why don't they just call the little prince Maximus Decimus Meridius? He wouldn't have to do anything but quote phrases:

'Today I saw a slave become more powerful than Rome (or Denmark)'
'At my signal unleash hell'
'What we do in life, echoes in eternity'
'Strength an honour'

He'll be the best King in history. Ever.

Little princess could be Joan. Of Ark can be her middle name

There's a little problem here: Hansel and Gretel is a German fairy tale by the Grimm brother. Denmark is the land of Hans Christian Anderson, so maybe we should look for names in his stories. Does the little Mermaid have a name in Anderson's story?

No, she has no first name. (She is just called "den lille Havfrue" in Danish)
Tommelise (Thumbelina) does not have a first name as well. But Tommelise is a very cute nick name.

As far as i know the princess in "the Wild Swans" is called Elisa.


My guess for a first name for the lille prinsesse:
Sophie/Sofie
Mathilde/Matilda
Elisabeth
Josefina
Charlotte
Louise

and the little prince:

William
Thomas
Knud (but more unlikely)

Elisa sounds very nice! But after all it's not likely that they look for names in fairy tales.
I don't like William. To me it sounds like an old man's name (and sorry, I never like the name of Prince William therefore). Also the name is now too much associated with the British royals.
Thomas and Charlotte are very nice, though.

Whatever names they choose, won't the little prince have either Frederik or Christian as one of them?

And won't the princess be: Something Something Ingrid Margrethe?

It isn't set in stone that the boy has to have Frederik or Christan and for the girl Ingrid and Margrethe.
I'm hoping we don't see any reoccurring family names unless it's for a specific reason.

There will probably be a Frederik/Christian in Elvis' name, as with his father, brother, uncle and cousins. Just in case...

Not so sure about Ingrid/Margrethe...

I think it is set in stone that the little prince is named "Frederik" with one of his name (likely not the first name, which is used on a daily basis, because that would be confusing).
But i think they will not use Christian as a middle name, because of their other son.
Ingrid or Margrethe might be used again, although it is used for Isabella. But just one of them, not both, because that is to much copying Isabella's name.
I take it for granted that they will use a traditional danish name as a middle name. They did so when using Ingrid and Valdemar. So Thyra, Dagmar, Gertrud, Hedwig, Ingeborg, Frederikke, Ulrike, Louise, Mathilde might be used as a middle name.

I love the name Feodora, but it is to unusual for a first name. Might be middle name, but i think they will not consider Feodora at all.

So in the end they might use the following combinations - just my predictions
4 name in total:
- 1. name, because they might like it.
- one middle name will be traditional Danish
- one or two middle names will be the names of a relative

Sophie (or Sofie) Elisabeth Margrethe Victoria
Mathilde Louise Mary Henrietta
Sophie (or Sofie) Margrethe Charlotte Johanne (a version of Jane)
Mathilde/Matilda Ulrikke Ingrid Charlotte
Elisabeth Amalie Margrethe Ingeborg
Josefina Louise Margrethe Thyra
Charlotte Hedwig Patricia Mary
Louise Ingrid Victoria Jane

William Frederik Andre Peter
William Frederik Knud Joachim
William Johann Frederik Knud
Thomas Johann Peter Frederik
Oscar Thomas Frederik Peter/Johann

Why is it set in stone?
If it was every son would have "Frederik" in their name would they not? Felix, Henrik, Konstantin and none of the Greek princes have Frederik in their name?
So I would not say it is set in stone.

It's simple a tradition of the Family that sons have either Frederik or Christian under their names. So if one of them should became King the could either Frederik or Christan as their regnal Name.
They only of Queen margrethe's grandson who has neither Christian orFrederik under his names is Prince Henrik jr. probably he is not high in the line of succession. And Konstantin has no succession rights neither are the greek Princes.

I was joking about the fairytale. Yes it is written by German authors, however, Hans was a King of Denmark and Hans is a Danish name. Grethe is the short form of Margrethe. Hans is also the short form of John. So I don't think those two names are out of the running, imo. Also, Hans as in Hans Chr. Andersen...lol...ok, I am done defending now!

Whatever names, the CPC chooses, I am sure they will be appropriate for them.

Hans Christian Valdemar Joachim
Margrethe (Grethe) Isabella Ingrid Henrietta
