I don't think we would have thought about Þorhildur either for Queen Margrethe And nobody expected Isabella, either

Not saying that the names suggested by betina will or won't be a choice

Considering who Margrethe is, and who she was born to, I would have expected a nordic middle name.
When it comes to Elvis and Shirley, I espect modern names with family traditional names as middle names for that sign of respect.

I personally like the Danish names. They are a nice way to honor the culture that they represent. I think it would be nice if they gave the children both Danish and English names (i.e. Danish name English name Danish name English name-or vice versa).

I agree. Or perhaps they could choose a name that works as both.

Another Australian connection idea...Names plus announcement dates...

Princess Sigrid Thyra Patricia Jane

(after Aussie actress (with a Scandinavian name), Sigrid Thornton, her birthday, 12 February, date of (hypothetical) christening date announcement)

Prince Hugo Archibald Vilhelm Frederik

(after Aussie actor (with suitable royal sounding name), Hugo Weaving, his birthday, 4 April, date of (hypothetical) christening that was announced on 12 February)

Princess Sigrid and Prince Hugo would go nicely with Christian and Isabella...And with Australian connections and coincidencess are added bonuses... :)

Hurry up and put my speculating circus out of it's misery

Mary's sister Jane is already godmother to Christian so perhaps for the twins Mary's brother John or sister Patricia? I think it would be nice to see someone from Mary's siblings and one of Frederik's French cousins.

I don't think cartoon characters deterred Joachim and Alexandra from using Felix, so I don't think it will have much weight with Mary and Frederik either...Oscar, Hugo, Matilda shouldn't be discounted due to their pop culture links...Let's face it, most names have associations with someone or something and sometimes if you like a name enough you will ignore them :)

I doubt it'll be a Hugo too, because of 'Jungledyret Hugo' ^.^
+ I think Prince Hugo/Prins Hugo sounds awkward.

But Phillip is too closely associated with the Duke of Edinburgh, and Charlotte with Charlotte Casiraghi.

I don't think Frederik and Mary will choose them for that reason.

Are they close to either the Duke or Charlotte Casiraghi?
The twins are Mary and Frederiks children, they can call them whatever they like. I'm sure Philip and Charlotte aren't going to be offended if M&F choose to use those names. It's not like they are exclusive.

I don't like the name Hugo. Laura is a pretty name. I like that one.
It wouldn't surprise me if they came up with names no one has thought of.

We're simply stating that some names sounds different in Danish + as there are some names that'll be mocked in Australia, there are also names that'll be mocked here in Denmark such as fx. Hugo, the little prince will be associated with this little guy all the time

Like the title off this thread implies, they are merely suggestions for fun...we have absolutely no influence at all on the names of these twins...It's fun to speculate and as I previously stated in post no. 830, cartoon characters didn't deter Joachim and Alexandra from using Felix, so I think the same can be said for Hugo...I know it's unlikely it will be used also but I was merely putting it out there as a possibility...

Most people's responses on this thread have been critiques of others suggestions, while not making any suggestions of their own...This is a suggestion thread not a critique thread, which I why I said in post no. 833 that I would 'like to see you guys do better'...Stop picking on me and make your own suggestions :P

At least I am trying to think like Mary and Fred as to what they could possibly name these babies...Soory for the rant, but I would love to see more suggestions and less critique...Thanks!
