From a royal point of view, Queen Margarethe, on "A Royal Family" pronounces the names as Dowmar & Tewra.

I say "TŁŁŁra", "Dagmar", and "÷schenie" (french pronunciation). But that writing only works with german.

Edit: Dagmar (pronunciation by a danish) Aussprache von Dagmar: Wie man Dagmar auf Dänisch, Tschechisch ausspricht
(German pronunciation is a lot more similar to the Czech one in the same link)

Eugenie in the french way: Aussprache von Eugénie de Montijo: Wie man Eugénie de Montijo auf Französisch ausspricht

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

Old names are actually very fashionable in Denmark, but I still don't believe that the first name is going to be Dagmar or Thyra.

Mat(h)ilda, Oscar and Nicholas are in my opinion both very international and suitable for a danish prince or princess.

I also like Louise, Magnus, Jacob, Amalie/Amťlie and Marius.

When they announced Isabella's name, they said that they found it by looking through the Danish Royal family tree. The names they have used with their first two children have been traditional family names.

I believe they will NOT use the following as first names:
Elizabeth (form of Isabella)
Alexandra (Joachim's ex-wife)
Alexandrine (Too close to the name of Joachim's ex-wife)
Ingrid (Already a living princess with this name*)
Charlotte (Already a living princess with this name)
Victoria (Already a living princess with this name)
Michael (Mary's nephew's name)
Alexander (Mary's nephew's name)
Magnus ("Sverre Magnus" goes by the name Magnus)
Nicholas (too similar to cousin Nikolai)

I am wondering if they will follow the trend to have matching first initials for the twins... such as Carl and Caroline; Andre and Anna; or Erik and Emma.
This is popular in the US. Is it done as much in Europe?

*While it is true that we have many prince "Philip"s and "William"s, their names are spelled and pronounced differently by country:
William of England
Willem Alexander of Netherlands
Guillaume of Luxembourg
Philippe of Belgium
Carl-Philip of Sweden
Felipe of Spain

Isabella was apparently named after Isabella of Austria consort to King Christian II.
But IMO the name is more modern than traditional, it was the 16th most popular name in 2007.

I'm so happy for Mary and Frederick!!!! I don't know about names...But I would like that Maxima and William of Netherlands (they seem to have fun at Victoria's wedding) be godparent's and princess Marie too, since Haakon, Mette Marit and Victoria are godparentīs of litle Christian...

I wish them all the best....

Well
Christian was born October 15th, christened January 21st.
Isabella was born April 21st, christened July 1st.

That's a 4 month gap ish between birth and christening so end of March, start of April christening I think.

That far in advance, and past busy season, would actually be quite a bit better for me, lumutqueen.

Care to share quarters as we volunteer for this duty?

Amalie Sophie Mary Margrethe

Matilda Thyra Anna Margrethe


Matilda could work, depending on whether or not the parents actually like that name. Matilda was the daughter of Christoffer I of Denmark.

I wonder if the family already knows the sex of the twins? Or is too early?

I researched and 18th/19th week?
I wonder if they find out, because the couple have never said anything. Didn't Marie say they knew Henrik was a boy before he was born?

Ohh, i love the name Matilda. But i prefer the Danish version Mathilde.
Anyway, the daughter of Christoffer I is called "Mechtild" in Denmark.
Mechtild sounds very old fashioned to me.
Mathilde/Matilda could be also difficult because of Caroline Matilda (English Princess and Danish Queen). She had a very sad and cruel life.

Traditional danish names i can imagine for the twins are:
Oluf
Erik
Magnus
Christoffer
Oscar
Gustav


Emma
Sofia/Sofie (or with ph)
Philippa
Dorotea
Catharina
Amalie
Louise
Charlotte

My vote definitely goes for the traditional names. I'm sick and tired of the names that mean nothing except trying to sound cool. Thank goodness that scourge has not affected royal families (yet!). Here are some lovely names from the danish late medieval history:

Adela, Amalia, Judith, Hedwig, Ingeborg, Dorothea (my personal favourite), Philippa, Magnus, Waldemar, Moritz, Holger

It's kind of got there already, yes the majority of names in royal families can somehow be traced to a royal ages okay but not all of them.
