I really think Mary and Frederik will want to avoid any name currently associated with another Royal, such as William or Mathilde.
They have quite a few choices to choose from, so I believe they'll select something unique to their own children.

I really don't think that people should have too high hopes about the boy being named Olafur. It sounds really weird in Danish. Just saying.

Are these definite for you or definite for the CP couple themselves?

I don't see that happening either, even though CP Frederik is said to like the works of the Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson. He made lamps for a stair well in the redecorated Amalienborg residence of Frederik and Mary! Olafur is a typical Icelandic name, the Danish version is Oluf. And IMO that's another no-go!

For the girl Charlotte or Helene/Helena would be nice. I also like Josephine, Cecilie, Emilie and Louise. Maybe Margrethe, Emma, Ingrid, Sophie, Mathilde, Caroline, Thyra but for a couple of those names there are already people close to them that are called that.
For the boy I like Erik, Johann, Carl, Axel, Oscar and Knut.

I didn't knew about that artist, but I still don't think it'll be an Olafur. I can just imagine him being nicknamed 'Prins Ole/Olle'. Lol.

What about Marina for the girl?
Kinda sweet because Frederik loves to sail (:

Exactly my sentiments!...surprise me and perhaps disappoint me...But hey, they aren't my kids to name, they have limitations as to what they can use and think they are conservative namers anyway...So matter how much I flog Xenia and Olafur, I know they are probably thinking more along the lines of Sophie and Thomas...Oh well!

LOL! Well, I prefer conservative names because they stand the test of time.
The children are in the direct line to the throne, so I think it's a good thing if their parents decide to stay with tradition and use royal names (but I hope they don't choose one already in use by a current royal).

That was my point, Mirabel...I hope as you say they 'stay with tradition and use royal names'....but just not boring ones, why use Sophie, Amelia, Alexander and Peter when they could go with Adelaide, Xenia, Oscar and Harald...Also traditional, royal names used in the past, just not boring ones!

A little Prince André would be cute. And whose name among the older royals haven't been used by the little princes? So maybe:

André Joachim Frederik Gustaf

Same logic behind the little Princess' name though personally it'd be nice if they use Frederik's name for the girl. I'm hoping for:

Frederika Alexandrine Mary Victoria.

Something like that anyway. I'm just really rooting for a
Prince André and Princess Frederika.

Or like Oscar 1. or Oscar 2. of Sweden. Queen Ingrid's great-great grandfather & great grandfather
Oscar is a cute name IMO + it is international.

I like those names & I really like the idea of André or another version of the name such as Andreas.

OK so if Oscar is out because of J & A's old dog, then I am hoping for Hugo...it is Germanic which fits well with Danish and has a slight Australian connection with the great Aussie actor, Hugo Weaving...

Prince Hugo Frederik Aage Stuart

and

Princess Matilda Thyra Patricia Jane

Prince Hugo and Princess Matilda

Christian, Isabella, Hugo and Matilda is a great set of siblings!

And I like Hugo and Matilda with royal cousins: Nikolai, Felix and Henrik :)

eta: I also like the idea of Archibald, also Germanic and the name of Mary's grandfather, Henrietta's father...Prince Archibald Frederik Marius Stuart...Prince Archie is so cool!

Archibald and Matilda is great for twins!

^^^^^^^^^^^
How do you pronounce those names? They have to be able to be pronounced by most people. Also considering Christian and Isabella are easy to say, I doubt they'll use a nordic name.

But I don't think you'll see any of the names suggested by betina as even middle names.
