Now Charlotte and Oscar are modern yet traditional. Thyra and Knud are old and not modern. IMO.

Well, I don't think that it would be the baby's first name, more like 2nd or 3rd, but if we take Dagmar, to honor Princess Dagmar, the Tsarina of Russia. Idk :P

Because traditions are everything in monarchies. The same names get recycled over and over again. Most, if not all royal names are picked from the royal family tree. Especially names that have deep meaning to a country, such asValdemar and Knud. It's continuity and continuity is very important within a monarchy. Even Isabella, which might sound like a modern, trendy name is actually a very old name many Royal families have used for many generations. Ferdinand and Isabella? And Isabella was a consort to a King Christian in Denmark in either the 1500 or 1600's.

I don't think Fred and Mary will be naming any of their children Knud or Gorm anytime soon, but you never know.

I think Thyra is a beautiful name.

Yeah Isabella is more of a modern name then a traditional one though. Thyra, Knud, Dagmar, Valdemar are old traditional names.
If tradtion is everything, why does Joachim have two boys named Nikolai and Felix?

IMO Tradition and continuity isn't that important in this monarchy, you can see it in the way they are, they are a modern family, and I would expect modern names from the couple. They did the traditional for Christian because they had to.

I will be shocked if they go old school. Ingrid I can understand, Margrethe maybe.

Isabella sounds modern to us but it is also very traditional. A 16th century Queen of Denmark, Norway and Sweden was Isabella of Austria, the granddaughter of Isabella I of Castile.

I don't know whether they will choose traditional names but I think they should. Those children will one day be children of the King of Denmark. Their chances of succeeding to the throne of Denmark are not as small as their cousins'.

I agree that Charlotte and Oscar are good names. The babies' ancestors have been named Oscar: King Oscar I and King Oscar II of Sweden

I don't think they had a choice when it came to naming Christian, same as Christian's first son will be called Frederik. Isabella is modern but also has links to their family history so I am counting on something similar for the twins.

Some posters are suggesting Valdemar, John, Ingrid and Margrethe but Christian and Isabella already have these as middle names. Is it likely they will be used again?

There can be a lot of reasons why Frederik & Mary choose the name Isabella. Isabella is another version of the name Elizabeth which is Mary's middle name, there's also been several Queen's named Isabella & P Isabella was born on April 21st which is also Queen Elizabeth's birthday & maybe that is also why they named her that? :P

I think that if they get a daughter, they'll name her either Dagmar or Thyra as 2nd, 3rd or 4th name, the reason why I believe that is that I think that they want the name to be as international as possible, also because Mary is australian.

I believe that choosing anything other than name forms used in Denmark would be a mistake. John would be awful. The babies will one day be children of the King of Denmark. I do not believe that Mary's ancestry should affect choosing their first name. Wouldn't the Danish people be alienated from the royal family if the heir to the throne named his son John instead of Johan or Hans or whatever form is used in Denmark?

I share entirely your opinion, Kotroman. The names of the twins must be Danish. If not, it's like they are not members of DANISH Royal family. I suppose that Princess Mary and Prince Frederik would not name any of their children with a foreign name.

Well, if you can't see the tabloid press' alluding to a new princess as 'Princess Daggy.........'

Perhaps the twins' mother can.

Well, i can think of a few danish names like Preben(good fotballplayer in the 80ths) or Brian(also good foballplayer in teh 80ths, brother to Preben). Peter is a common name.

I think if they are twin girls they will be Ingrid and Viktoria, or Ingrid and Marie


If they are boys - I have no idea!

i think princess marie is a safe bet when it comes to godparents. i also think they will choose another european crown prince or princess. it seems they have chosen victoria and mette marit already, so my guess would be maxima and letizia this time, one for each of the twins (although they are both catholic, but they picked mathilde before). caroline heering, tanja doky, carina axelsson or helle reedtz are also good bets.

I have also been thinking about Benedikte for a girl, followed perhaps by Jane.
They might choose Waldemar for a boy - it's an old traditional royal name which has gained some popularity in recent years, so it would be both modern and traditional. One of Joachim's boys has Waldemar as his middle name but I don't think that would be a problem.

Christian's first middle name in Valdemar.

Well if they name the children Dagmar or Thyra or something old, I will truely feel sorry for the children when they grow up.

I have come back with some possible combos:

Matilda Dagmar Olympia Jane
Anneke Thyra Renee Patricia

Olafur Vilhelm Archibald Frederik
Harald Johan Aage Christian

Matilda Dagmar Olympia Ingrid
Oscar Harald Archibald Frederik

Basically, I would like them to include a bit of australian flavour (Matilda), few of Mary's family names (Jane, Patricia, Archibald), a name signifying where they met (Olympia) and some obscure Danish royal family names (Aage, Dagmar, Thyra), even a Icelandic dark horse (Olafur)...I have no idea and can't wait, I think because they put the world into a spin because they used John with Christian and Isabella, I think we should just expect the unexpected...

I like the idea of:
Matilda & Anneke
Matilda & Charlotte
Matilda & Olympia
Matilda & Oscar
Matilda & Olafur
Charlotte & Oscar
Charlotte & Olafur
Oscar & Harald
Olafur & Harald

In lutheran churches you can be godparent, when you had your confirmation. The Confirmation is usually with 14 (or sometimes 13) years old.
So Nikolai would be ways to young.

i think they will take godparents out of their private circle (friends etc.). Already Isabella's godparents where hardly known before, besides Mathilde and Alexia. So now they might take Princess Marie and 5 friends for one twin, and Prince Daniel and 5 friends for the other twin.

I cannot image they will use something as old and clunky as Dagmar for a first name.

There is a pronunciation problem with Thyra also. Most people would pronounce it to rhymn with thyroid rather than Tewra which is the correct pronunciation. Some simple education of the press when the names are announced would be all that was needed. Yeah, sure there will be some gutter press who come up with thing like "Princess Daggy" & "Princess Thyroid" but I cannot see they would be in the majority. Look at Princess Eugenie. No one comments much about her name now and yet when she was born it was considered very old fashioned and pronounciatian went as far as Ewwww Jeanie!!

i'm totally unsecure how to pronounce this names. Is there a way of listening to the names? You tube eg?
I say "Tüüüra", "Dagmar", and "Öschenie" (french pronunciation). But that writing only works with german.

Edit: Dagmar (pronunciation by a danish) http://de.forvo.com/word/dagmar#cs
(German pronunciation is a lot more similar to the Czech one in the same link)

Eugenie in the french way: http://de.forvo.com/word/eug%C3%A9nie_de_montijo#fr

(from you tube) Here a Danish man says Thyra (the very first word):
