Uh well seeing as the others have 5 godparents, I'd believe this little prince/princess will have the same amount of godparents.
My guess:

Princess Alexandra of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg
Gregory Grandet
Edouard Cavallier
Bendt Wedell (or his wife Pernille Wedell)
Agathe de Sacy

I'm confused by these suggestions - you seem to both say that for a boy, all men godparents and for a girl, all women godparents?
There's usually a mix?

Pity that Nicolai is still too young...
Or maybe he will have been confirmed by that day? (or attending a course preparing to confirmation)

Maybe they'll choose queen margarethe as godmother other royals and friends, I can guess but it usually ends up being other people.

IIRC, then he´s in 6th grade now and the confirmation is in 7th (some places 8th) grade :)

I did not know Prince Edward was Prince Nikolai's godfather.

I think the usual Royals will be chosen, perhaps Mary and Frederik, Haakon and Mette-Marit etc. I can't see any British Royal's being asked.

I think we can discount Mary - seeing as she's Henrik's godmama. Frederik has a chance as Nikolai is grown up.

I can´t see them asking CP Frederik to be godparent again. He got the honour with the firstborn :)

Going by Joachim with Alexandra and Marie's previous choices it seems there may be two things we can be certain of IMO:

1. There will be 5 godparents in all, 3 of the same sex as the child and two of the opposite gender
2. Unless someone new joins the Danish/Greek/Berleburg family (like Mary after Felix's birth but before bette Henrik's), there probably won't be any royal godparents. So perhaps Tatiana may be a godmother but as Nikolaos isn't one himself, that seems unlikely.

Agnete Arnø is actually a really good suggestion, her and Marie seems to be pretty close.
