I think that he was presented with the post-it when he and his lovely wife Margit entered the church just before the christening.
He knew the names when he talked to DR1's reporter (who guessed on her own name, Merle ).

IIRC, then he said that he didn´t know the names at the time. But when he is presented with the post-it then he´ll notice if there´s an unsual name and then learn how to pronounce it

I thought Princess Marie's brooch looks quite interesting, would like to see an HQ of it sometime. Prince Joachim looks so well in a suit. They really compliment each other in manner I think.

I should wonder if any of our Danish members would know if the christening robe is the one which was worn by Princess Josephine or if it is infact a new addition?

Aww, the little thing dozed off and was awaken when the music started.
This is really very exiting; the very first royal event I watch live.

He told DR1's reporter that he knew the names, that he hadn't seen any of them coming, that he didn't have the name on a post-it in his pocket because of all the journalists being around (joke) and that he know the names but it's first at the christening, when Marie says the name out loud, that he'll know how to pronounce it (I think by that, he meant that as being general for all royal christenings, that he'll first know the right way to pronounce the name when the mother says it aloud)

Josephine wore a robe that was found on Amalienborg by QMII, the little Princess is wearing the same robe as her older brother, Prince Henrik, a robe that was made for Henrik.

Not a HQ, but here is picture of the brooch.
It looks as though it compliments Marie's engagement ring.

And just one more picture of the little Princess simply because I can't get enough of her sweet face.

And the little girl's names are:
Athena Marguerite Françoise Marie.

The last three names were pretty predictable (I guessed them), but Athena is unexpected. Very beautiful though.

Athena - what a nice name. The Greek Godess of wisdom. It seems they listened to the astrologer's interpretation of little Athena's birth horoscope.

Don't like the first name: Athena

I guess I have to get used to it before liking it

A pretty name but naming her Athena would've IMO required at least one godfather/godmother from the Greek royal family.
