It is not at all now in Australia.

Further gorgeous guesses for the Twins' names:

Philippa Mary Alexandrine Alanna & Maximilian Abel Frederik Andre
Dorothea Mary Philippa Daisy & Abel Frederik Maximilian Horne
Dorothea Mary Adelaide Philippa & Abel Frederik Marie Maximilian

..inspired by the other royal Danish twins of history, the meaning of Philippa - horse lover, Max is very modern, Abel Tasman, Mary's sisters'
middle names and Andre, Horne, Daisy (nick name), Marie, Alexandrine, Mary and Frederik - more family names. Australia - Adelaide and Dorothea MacKellar.
Are there other twins in Danish royal history? I'd think it more likely we see Margrethe and not her nickname Daisy for the princess. I hope if they use it, it is as a first name. If it has to be used again, I would think there were far more names to use. Alexandrine is likely too close to Mary's nephew's name Alexander.

Dorothea if chosen I doubt will have much to do with Dorothea Mckeller, she isn't that well known of an Aussie. There are a number of Danish princesses though named Dorothea, and one queen, the wife of Christian I.

It would be cute if they used Anna-something. There have been a number of Danish princesses with the double first name.
Anna-Christina
Anna-Catherine
Anna-Sophia

I think Anna-Christina would be pretty, Christina being a variation of Christian, as girls are now in line equally

I think Prince Abel Frederick and Princess Anna-Christina would be cute

and their other christian names perhaps links to Australia and family

Queen Isabella of Denmark gave birth to twin boys in 1519.
- Philip and Maximilian who did not survive. Another of her children was named Dorothea oddly enough.
Dorothea MacKellar is a very well known Australian poet, in Australia at least.
You might recognize lines from her poems more so than her name.....
"I love a sunburnt country" etc. Look her up, you might like her very descriptive poems saturated with colourful visions and a love of the Australian outdoors.
How were the Princesses Dorothea pronounced in Danish?

Some other royal family names I've read that I like are:
Ulrika, Cecilia, Margarete, Baptiste, Gustav and Charles.

Yes, Abel and Anna would be cute.

My name suggestions:

Oscar Frederik André Carl
Sophie Adelaide Mary Renée

Oscar and Sophie are popular names in both Denmark and Australia.

I really don't mean to offend anyone but I really hope they dont name Little Elvis, Oscar, always reminds me of a hot dog, plus I just plain dont like it.
I don't think they will choose Sophie because of Infanta Sofia and Queen Sofia of Spain. They seem to like modern names blended with traditional and looking back through-out history I like the following royal names for the little girl:
Emma, Caroline-Mathilda, Charlotte.
I like Maximilian or Michael for little Elvis

Johanne is very pretty, especially the Danish pronunciation. Viggo has never been a favorite - it just doesn't roll of the tongue very well for me, but it's a Danish Royal Family name, so I wouldn't be surprised if they used it.

No, the first Abel did not fare well, I agree.
Though, most names would have a person in history sporting that name who is not perfect or who is involved in something upsetting.
I think most names also have been used by people who have worthwhile pursuits and positive intentions.

You can't judge a name by one or two bearers.
The new twins will each stamp their own unique mark on whichever names their parents choose for them.

I was just thinking that those Huge Big Names come with a lot of expectations for such a little child Especially when taken from the bible, there is usually a certain expectation ingrained I don't know if it comes across what I mean, but I don't know how to explain it differently

Maybe they won't use Erik if Frederik is going to be one of the middle names.

Not to offend anyone but I really dont like Abel. Reason: There was a king in Denmark named Abel who killed his brother Erik and dumped him in the river Slien.

Viggo? Hmm, don't think so.

FasterB, isn't Viggo very much out these days?

Johanne is a pretty name, though.

Viggo is quite popular atm. btw we have had a Viggo in the royal danish family. Prince Valdemar, son of Christian 9, had a son named Viggo.

That's interesting. Kind of like the story of Cain and Abel in the bible but the other way round...

How about Gustaf after Queen Margrethe's grandfather and Gustav of Berleberg. It'll work out nicely if he's one of the godparents.

I'm stuck on girl's names. I like Dagmar, Dorothea is nice or maybe Theodor/Feodor for the boy.

It is? Okay.

I can't remember the last time I met someone called Viggo.

Viggo and Vibeke? Nah, doesn't ring.

Abel and Abelone?

no offense, but i hate the name Dorothea. i hope they dont give that name.

i like Christina (i doubt they will name their daughter so similar to her brother Christian), Marianne, Eve, Mathile(a) (my favourite), Suzanne, Lea (i doubt, but the name is so cute and small), Dagmar, Beatriz, Caroline(a), Catharine(a), Diane, Filipa, Helene, Jessica, Lilian, Laura, Nuria, Rose, Sarah, etc...

for the boy, please no Oscar and Abel, i dont like that names.
but i would love an Alexander, Erik, Richard, Thomas (my favourite, such an handsome Prince Thomas), Maximilliam (i doubt), etc...

wow, cant wait to know the names. just one more month
(and im sure that it will end up being 2 names we never guessed)

I think Mary and Frederik will do what they did in Isabella's case: search the family tree for a royal name that is somewhat obscure but works in both Danish and English.

(And isn't in use by any other current royals).

I think as the couple named their daughter Isabella which is not a Danish name in first place, I do not think they will go for traditional Danish names at all. And if they did, probably only in relation to the family tree. I'm not fond of modern names for royal children, but I believe they will choose a modern one. Speculation is more or less senseless, we will see the result soon enough.

Is Horne really a first name? Also, Donaldson is a last name, not a first name.

I really like Johanne! I think it's a great name.
Yes, Freya is nice, but Princess Freya just doesn't sound quite right?
Oscar could also be used by Victoria for her first child? The name is even more Swedish royal than Danish.

Maximilian and Thomas are nice names for a boy, too.
