According to an article on the front page of this site, yes, May 20th, was reported by the royal court. Seems odd, four days short of her being four months old. They are usually around 3 months, usually a bit before. It's hard enough waiting on the name, without adding another month.

Yes its definitely May 20th at 5pm, the news is on the official website. Seems a long time to wait but it's not really. I think we are all just so impatient to hear her names!!

I think it's because it'll be warmer here around May-June. But then again, you can't be guaranteed good weather in Denmark no matter what time the year it is.

Didn't stop the twins from being baptized in april after a January birth. Winter baptisms have been no issue. Christian was baptized in January. And Nikolai in November. They have all been winter/early spring/late fall except Isabella and Henrik.

3 months, 4 months. The child is still in infant. Whats the big deal? Does it really matter? Maybe it was just a scheduling issue getting all of the family together on the same date.

Well IMO, Møgeltønder is way prettier in the summer/warmer months, very ideal for a christening. But as NGalitzine very wisely pointed out, April or May - does it really matter?

Christening is set at 5 pm, late may will be better (more daylight) that April. I can wait that long, but I hope for pictures soon.

I think the point is, every royal baptism has been 3 months, or just before. So why the sudden break with tradition?

Beyond that, people are just anxious as because unlike the Swedes, we don't get to know the name. So four months is an extra wait to hear it.

Today I suddenly started hoping that they pick a completely unexpected name the way the Crown Princess Couple of Sweden did.

Any guesses about the infant princess' first name? My guess is Margrethe.

I have some guesses which might seem random but I went over both names of Danish and French princesses to come up with them(plus threw in some wildcard guesses). With a son named Henrik I don't think they will go with Margrethe. I also feel that Margrethe is being saved for Christian's first daughter(I know, thinking way ahead here).

Anyway, these are my guesses:

Dagmar - I feel if they go super traditional as I feel they did with Henrik they might go with this

Cecile (or the Danish form of this name) - no real reason just have a feeling about it

Yolande - a wildcard but the name of some French princesses from the past

Victoria
-making a connection to Queen Victoria and the Swedish crown princess

Genevieve - some form of this name is again a wildcard guess

Johanna(not sure if this is the Danish form) - just a gut feeling on this one

Stephanie - again, just a gut feeling on this one

I know this wont be an issue until in MANY years, it might not be an issue at all if Christian doesn't have any daughters, but I hope the for a potential first daughter, Christian will choose Ingrid over Margrethe, Margrethe is such a terribly old-fashioned name.

The Danish version would be Johanne
I love the name Joanna though, Princess Joanna sounds pretty cute.

Oh, I never knew. I just know way more Johanne's than Johanna's so I figured that was the most common used Danish version of the name

It´s in no doubt the most common form (Johanne) in Denmark, but they could choose to go with Johanna

how would be Greta instead of Margrethe?

My guesses:
Greta Emma Francoise Odile
Clara Odile Margrethe Francoise/Clara Louise Margrethe Francoise
Margrethe Emma Ingrid Odile
Emma Louise Margrethe Francoise

Denmark already has Princess Josephine and i think that another 'Jo' in the family would be too much. Also, there is a Princess Ingrid Alexandra of Norway already. I am just hoping for a traditional, yet up-to-date name. 'Frederika' maybe?

The name 'Estelle' is just too old-fasioned, and she would made fun of if she was not a princess and future queen of Sweden. What an awful name for a beautiful child.

And just one Princess Stephanie in this world is enough.
