I think Elisabeth or ingrid would be good alternative names.

I wouldn't think Elizabeth likely as a possible first name. There is already a Princess Elisabeth of Denmark and also Princess Elizabeth of Belgium. Add to those a current reigning monarch and I think Elizabeth has been used quite sufficiently to date.

I made some earlier suggestions, but I'm not very good with such things as name picking.

Anyway, a couple more...

I quite like the use of Rene as a middle name actually. Interesting that no one else has thought of that aswell A nice tribute to the Prince Consort's late mother.

I don't know how the Danes or other non french speaking people perceive the name Ren(e) because for us french native it sounds as old as Knud and Dagmar. Actually it doesn't stand the same historical meaning of those names, but for sure it is for now a very old-fashionned name. If Fred and Mary like modern names they will hardly choose this one.

I feel already a little sorry for Christian and Isabella because those twins might take away all the attention on them. (Specially also because IMO they are not THAT cute...) Hopefully they arent at least identical.

If you put it that way, you should feel more sorry for Isabella, because Christian still has his own specialty of being the heir. So one day it will be just Crown Prince Christian, the twins and ... oh yeah, there's this girl, too. What was her name again?

In that case we should hope for two boys, because that would give Isabella her own specialty of being the only girl.

Doesn't mean it would have to be a firstname.

I don't think Elizabeth will be used as a first name because it is a variation of Isabella. It would be like naming a boy Christopher, when they already have a son named Christian.

A very valid point.

I completely agree and naming a little Princess with that name would be a nice gesture to her country of birth. For those who don't know, Waltzing Matilda is Australia's unofficial anthem, and quite a famous Australian bush ballad.

More combos just for fun:

Xenia Margrethe Olympia Renee
Matilda Dagmar Patricia Jane

I am hoping for two girls...Imagine Christian then, with 3 little sisters, too cute :)

I have no idea which direction they will take with first names BUT as for middle names they have so many options and 6 spots to fill...

My list of possible middle names:

Patricia - sister
Jane - sister
Renee - Prince Henrik's mother
Dagmar - important Danish/Russian royal
Thyra - see above
Olympia - where they met, I would love it if they included this!
Mary - obvious reason
Elizabeth - Mary's middle name and a royal name

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



Mathilde without the 'h' is not the usual form in Denmark.

Isabella is not the traditional variation of Elisabeth in Denmark either. As we know, it's Italian.

Need it be said, that a name that is not traditionally Danish, or is not spelt in the Danish fashion, does not make that person any less Danish.

It is merely an alternative form of spelling.

Isabella is more Spanish and Italian; the italian variation of Elizabeth is Elisabetta. Anyway, I thought Isabella was a sort of tratitional name considering that some Queen Consort had this name in the past.

I`m not sure what`s your point here, but Isabella (in this spelling) is a normally used name in Denmark, last year it was the 7th most popular name for girls (and I remember it was that popular even before Princess Isabella was born). Matilda is not used, as a Danish spelling for this name is Mathilde. Mathilde was on the 9th place last year:

Mest populære navne for danskere født i et bestemt år - Danmarks Statistik

And I think that as Mary and Frederik are Danish and represent Denmark, they should choose a name spelt in the Danish fashion

I was not commenting on the name Isabella, its origins, or spelling, nor did I remark about anything being more or less Danish, my post related to the common spelling in Denmark for the name Mathilde.
