Anne-Sophie (or just Anne) would be a good name for the girl. But somehow I doubt it'll be a double name.
I'm still all in for Oscar for the boy. Oscar, William or Andreas.

Oscar Andre Frederik Gustav
Mathilde Alexandrine Dagmar Louise

People keep mentioning some version of Alexander or Alexandrine as a possibility, but wouldn't that remind everyone of Joachim's ex-wife, Alexandra?
Even if they are on quite good terms, I wouldn't think the RF would want that.

I don't see why it would remind them of the countess. Alexandrine is the name of Frederik & Joachim's great-grandmother. Alexander is a Donaldson family name. That's where the connection would come in; it has nothing to do with Joachim's ex-wife.

IMO, the only thing that would remind everyone of the countess, would be if they named the little princess directly after her. (; I don't see why Alexandrine or Alexander would do harm.

I don't think Alexandrine or Alexander are options, regardless of the family connections...Too close to Countess Alexandra and Mary has a nephew called Alexander (Stephens, Jane's son)...And doesn't Frederik have a cousin, Alexandra (Sayn-Berleburg-???, Benedikte's daughter?)...so I think Alexander/Alexandra and its variations is used enough in the family for Mary and Fred to even consider it...i think they are looking for something, unusual but traditional, with royal precedence but not used regularly, and popular with the mainstream, think of Isabella, that name fits all that criteria, which is why they probably used it...So they will probably go down a similar route with the twins...Which is why I think names like Oscar and Matilda are definite possibilities...If they chose either Alexander or Alexandrine as a middle name, then that is fine, because that name won't be used on a day-to-day basis and cause a glut of Alex's within both sides of the family

Exactly. They wouldn't use it as a first name, but IMO it (Alexandrine) is very likely to be a middle name.

I just had a brainwave that Robert might be used as a first name because of it's Scottish history (Robert the Bruce, the Bruce association would keep the Aussies happy too ) and its Danish royal family precedence (middle name of Prince Aage Christian Alexander Robert)...Would love to see a Prince Robert of Denmark too...maybe his full name could be:

Prince Robert Archibald Oscar Frederik (Prince Robbie )

I love Robert, and it is Danish, but other then a middle name it doesn't actually appear royal in Denmark. Perhaps James. James III of Scotland and James I of England both were married to Danish princesses. It would draw a link to both Scotland and Denmark. In Danish it is Jakob, but it would be like using Isabella instead of Elisabeth.

Prince James 'Jamie' Friedrick Archibald Joachim

and perhaps since Jamie is for Scotland

Princess Mathilde Elizabeth Mary Renee

I really hope it won't be Oscar. That one should be reserved for Sweden.

A name cannot be reserved for a specific country, that's silly in my mind. A name is a name.

I don't see why a name should be reserved for a country. Who says Victoria and Daniel would like the name Oscar? I don't like the name and hope they don't use it but don't see the point of saying it should be reserved for another country.

I don't see anything silly about that. Yes a name is a name, but we're talking about royals, majority of the names used for royal children is comming from their family trees (the exact name) or honoring someone from their family trees (variant). Sweden (Bernadotte dynasty) had two kings named Oscar in their history and another 3 had this name among their names, while in Denmark you can't find the name in the family tree that easily. So I think it would be a nice gesture from Frederik and Mary to not use this name for their son and keep this option open for the Swedes. Whether they use it or not. What I would find silly would be if we had Prince Oscar of Denmark and Prince Oscar of Sweden.

I really hope they avoid using Dagmar; I know it's a DRF name, but it sounds...almost masculine, not a very nice ring to it at all. I'm still crossing my fingers for Johanne or Charlotte for the girl, and Erik for the boy.

We have two Prince Henriks of Denmark. Two Prince Williams depending upon the way you spell Wilhelm. There were two kings of Sweden named Oscar, so they deserve to keep that name for themselves for that reason?
That's like Denmark putting a copyright on the name Frederik or Christian because that's become some form of family tradition. Change is good, sticking to old names from a family can get tedious.

None of them in the same generation. And the Henrik case it's exactly what I've mentioned before, using name from your family tree.

From the point of tradition and significance for the family? Yes, they do.

Don't they already have it? How many Frederik's and Christian's are there around in the current reigning royal houses?

I agree with Lumutqueen. If Frederik and Mary would really like to name their son Oscar I think they shall be allowed to do so. I don’t see any unwritten rule that says that a specific name is only allowed to appear in the Royal Family of one single country just because they once or twice had a king named like this.
It would be the Danish Crown Prince Couple’s decision if they’d feel comfortable with it or not. Still today there is no son born or announced to be born in Sweden. So if they’d really love to name their son Oscar I can’t see any reason not to go for it only because one day there might be born a boy in the Swedish Royal Family who maybe will be called Oscar but maybe not.
The parents have the right to name their child whatever they like, regardless if they are royal. That’s my opinion. There are enough names out there and a family tree and tradition won’t give only one opportunity to name a child.

I agree with the Johanne, and I love Erik but Erik Friedrik, I don't know about.

One different generations. Henrik is named for his grandfather. Wilhelm-Alexander is between Prince William and Charles in age, so some what another generation. It's not the same as if Victoria and Mary both has sons Oscar. But I agree, it seems dumb if Mary and Fred like the name Oscar, not to use it, just in case Victoria wants it. Victoria and Daniel may not like it. Unless they ask Victoria and Daniel if that is name they are considering for a son.

Christian and Friedrick might not be copyrighted, but any royal is going to know that is not a tradition that will change any time soon, for first born sons at least.

I think if they'll use Frederik, it will be the danish spelling.
Not Frederick or Friedrick or something else.
