Somehow most women prefer names being popular where they grew up. I and a lot of friends loved the name Emma oder Emilia since ever - suddenly end of the 90th it emerges in Top Ten list of baby names.

Isabella was a very modern und popular name in Australia in 2006/7
So maybe they will choose another name, that ist popular in Australia (just because it coincide with their taste.

so this is the top ten list from Aus. 2007:
  1. Ella
  2. Emily
  3. Mia
  4. Isabella
  5. Chloe
  6. Charlotte
  7. Olivia
  8. Sophie
  9. Lily
  10. Sienna
  1. Jack
  2. Joshua
  3. Lachlan
  4. William
  5. Thomas
  6. Riley
  7. James
  8. Cooper
  9. Ethan
  10. Noah
McCrindle Research || Market Research | Social Trend Analysis | Generational Studies | Brand-Idea-Service Relevance Audits

Some are just not regal enough: Ella, Emily, Mia, Chloe, Olivia, Lily and Sienna.

Leaves: Isabella, Charlotte and Sophie. So Charlotte and Sophie is my tip for sisters to Isabella

Pretty much the same with the boys names. I just cannot imagine a prince called either Jack, Joshua, Lachlan, Riley, Cooper, Ethan or Noah.

But i could imagine: William, Thomas and James. James sounds strange to me for a danish boy. so Thomas and William are likely to me.

So I'm changing my guess for a second boy from yesterday:
to Thomas Christian Andre Peter

Sophie Elizabeth Margrethe Victoria
Charlotte Louise Mary Henrietta

two boys:
William Frederik Henri Jan
Magnus Christian Andre Peter

Mixed:
Sophie Elizabeth Margrethe Victoria
William Frederik Andre Peter


The cousins of the new babies and Isabella und Christian are called:
Nikolai William Alexander Frederik
Felix Henrik Valdemar Christian
Henrik Carl Joachim Alain
Alexander
Erin
Kate
Michael
Madisson
Molly
Sherree
Michelle

plus the grandchildren for Benedikte (close family):
Friedrich Richard Oscar Jefferson
Ingrid Alexandra Irma Astrid Benedikte
Konstantin Gustav Heinrich Richard
So i'm pretty sure, there will be no Alexander (cousin and secondly the exwife of Fred.' brother), no Marie, no Ingrid (by first name), no Nikolai etc., because names are already used in the family.

here the popular names from Danemark: http://www.kindernamen.org/die-belie...daenemark.html

It would be nice if Matilda and Banjo could make an appearance in the twins names if they are a boy and girl, as it would be a nice nod to Mary's Australian heritage. (For those that are unfamilair with both names, Matilda refers to the bush ballard or folk song "Waltzing Matilda" written by Banjo Patterson, a famous Aussie poet).

Given that the pronunciation is "Dowmar" I fail to see what the ozzie slang "Dag" has to do with it.

Because how many people would actually know to pronounce Dagmar as "Dowmar" and not Dagmar as it is written? I know I certainly didn't before I watched the The Royal Family documentary. That would be the problem with Dagmar (they could use Thyra if they wanted to use a historical Danish name - reads much nicer).

I'd say F&M will pick names that they like, throwing us for a loop like Isabella did back in 2007. There are several Charlottes, Sophies and Carolines in the Danish royal family tree, so if one or both of the babies are girls, one of those names could be a contender.

No doubt Christian or Frederik will be in any boys name as a middle name (Henrik Jr is the only boy born in recent years in the main line who doesn't have one of those two somewhere in his name).

  • Carina Axelsson
  • Siblings of CP Mary
My favourites:

After seeing them very close at the wedding of Victoria and Daniel, i defenetly think that either Maxima or Willem-Alexander will be one of the godparents.

Good call on Carina as godmother. She and Mary do seem really close.

Havn't considered names yet however for godparents for the twins I forsee:

Princess Marie
Prince Daniel
Princess Maxima
Prince Willem-Alexander
Carina Axelson
Patricia (Mary's sister)
John (Mary's brother)
A Berleburg or Greek cousin (I think Nikolaus)

Is Marius Hoiby old enough to be a godparent?

Girl(s)

I was going to say that Elisabeth would be a good choice because it's the name of the Queen's cousin and Elizabeth is Mary's middle name but then it occurred to me that Isabella and Elisabeth are actually to forms of the same name. So, no to Elisabeth.

Thyra and Alexandrine are great suggestions. I also like the name Dorothea. Denmark had two queens consort and several princesses named Dorothea. They seem to have named Isabella after the wife of Christian II; perhaps they'll name another daughter after a Danish queen consort.

Boy(s)

I believe Valdemar and Eric are good suggestions.

Could I ask why people think Mary and Frederik are going to pick traditional names, like Thrya, Dagmar, Waldermar etc?

I also bet on Margrethe or Ingrid or even Dagmar for girls and Frederik, John or Knud for boys.

Godparents? Princess Marie or Prince Daniel (I wish Princess Letizia as well, but it's very unprobable)

But they broke with tradition with the name Isabella.
IMO they stuck with Christian because they had to, and now for the twins they'll go modern Charlotte, Thomas, John maybe etc.
Names like Thyra, Dagmar, Knud, Waldemar are old.

I don't know. It bugs me so much that I don't know how old you have to be to be a godparent, because then I would totally go for Prince Nikolai, him & Frederik seems so close.

Marius is 13, Nikolai is 10, Felix is 8.

I would say 10 or over would be an acceptable age, Marius would be okay I guess. Some places say 16 or 18.

That's what I think, too. Christian was sure but Isabella is a very modern name. Don't think they will chose traditional ones, at least not for the first name.
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.
