I have been making a lot of suggestions myself & again - we were stating our opinion on the name - don't take everything too personal.

Who are his French cousins? I've never come across them before.

Believe me I am not taking it personally...I am just disappointed with the level and quality of suggestions...I would love to read other people's ideas about names...rather than all the other stuff!

I think we are going to see Crown Prince Pavlos or Crown Princess Marie-Chantal as godparents. I think that was why she was at the Spring/Summer Haute Couture shows - shiopping for the royal weddings and/or the Danish christenings.

Pavlos is godfather to Christian. Just because she was shopping doesn't mean they are going to make an appearance at any wedding/christening.

I would think that Mary's sister Patricia would be asked since Jane is a Godmother to Christian.

Godparents:
Patricia Bailey (Mary's sister)
John Donaldson (Mary's brother)
Princess Marie
Alexandra, Countess of Pfeil and Klein-Ellguth
Prince Daniel
CP Victoria
2 friends of CPC

I also have given some thought to official photos. I first said perhaps CP Mary's birthday; after more deliberation, it makes more sense for them to wait until the christening. I think we will hear an official announcement about the baptism in late March.
As a mother myself, I would coordinate official engagements to ease the stress of events such as these have on children so young. The family may want to have the christening closer to QMII's birthday as well, in consideration of family and friends who need to travel.

Also, there were a handful of comments suggesting the CPC might attend the wedding in the UK in April. I would say this is doubtful. I think Prince Joachim and Princess Marie will be the ones to attend as it was Queen Elizabeth's youngest children that attended Fred and Mary's ceremony. I personally don't feel this event warrants attendance by the CPC. Therefore, any events abroad would not be taken into consideration when the CPC's loyalty and devotion is to Denmark and of course their young ones.
It could turn out I am wrong, but honestly, imo, the CPC is too busy with their brood to try to travel for awhile now.

Possible godparents:
One or more of Frederik's Greek cousins (except Pavlos and Alexia who are already godparents to Christian and Isabella)
One or more Berleberg cousin
Mary's brother
Phillipe of Belgium (Mathilde is Isabella's godmother)
Wilem-Alexander and/or Maxima
I'm not sure how close the couple are to foreign royals who aren't heirs but Carl Philip of Sweden is a possibility

I'd like to see Phillipos or Theodora as godparents, but since it's twins maybe couples would be chosen instead. Maybe Prince Nikolas and his new wife who's name escapes me at the moment?

I think one of Mary's Danish friends would make the cut? Caroline, Tanja or Helle?

When will we know for sure? I've been waiting for the names of the twins to be given, but haven't seen anything yet.

It is a tradition in the royal family not to reveal the names before the christening.

We will have to wait some 2-3 months.

I don't think EX royals would be good enough for Mary.

Well, for one, Frederik and Mary have never met Catherine - it would be ridiculous to give someone the honour of being your child's godparent if you have never met them.

Caroline and Tanja were friends of Mary's first, then later become her L-i-W/secretaries. Their husbands are also good friends with Frederik (Peter Heering has been friends with Frederik since they were children I believe - their mothers are close friends).

Pavlos of Greece being the godfather of Christian disproves that. Alexia of Greece, as godmother to Isabella, too.
