I'm still hoping for a Beatrice, Astrid, Philippa (or the more common Danish spelling, Filippa) or Caroline, I think that all those names go well with the boys' names.

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.
I can't imagine that would stop them from giving her a name they really like that begins with a 'Jo'. Now obviously it is limited with names that begin with 'Jo', but as long as they don't name her Josephine (or Josefine), I don't see the problem. Also, I said that I'd hope that Christian would name a potential first daughter Ingrid, I wasn't suggesting the name for the little sleeping beauty here.

I wonder if the French-side of the family gets a nod this time? After all, both Henrik and Marie are French. Perhaps Renee after Henrik's mother? Francoise after Marie's mother?

Renee Francoise Ingrid Margrethe
Margrethe Francoise Marie Ingrid

Renee Ingrid Mari(a)(e) Francoise, or something out of the box, such as Chantel, Michelle, Michaela, or Magdalen(e)(a)?

I really hope it won't be Margrethe (siblings named Henrik & Margrethe is just a no no in my book). Or some French name that isn't really used in Denmark.

An old danish name would be great. Maybe some of the old princess names like Dagmar, Amalie or Charlotte.
And I'm still a bit hooked on the name Julie.

Are we there yet? lol

Also like your choice of names. It least one thing for, you can count out 'Alexandra. Is 'Julie' a name used on Denmark?
Are we there yet? I hope not - speculation is lots of fun and gives one time to relax while while thinking. Any other ideas for NYN's name?

Dagmar, I have such a severe love for that name, also Henrik and Dagmar goes really well together. I'd love to have a little 'Prinsesse Dagmar'. There's the pronunciation difficulties though, I'm not sure how you say Dagmar in French for instance.

Princess Louise/a/Cecilie/Sophia/Viktoria/Anna

Middle names perhaps: Margrethe/Francoise/Odile/Ingrid

I would be shocked if margrethe doesn't feature as a middle name but I'm really hoping it isn't the first name. I think having siblings Henrik and Margrethe would be too much.



I also think a Mathilde would be great. Freya is also lovely. Too many to chose from!

Lately I've been thinking that it might be Charlotte or Gabrielle both French but they have Nordic equivalents.

I would be very surprised if there wasn't an Odile in there somewhere (but then again, the DRF and their choice of names has surprised me before).

Caroline Ingrid Francoise Odile
Philippa Odile Francoise Margrethe
Mathilde Dagmar Odile Margrethe
Beatrice Odile Marie Charlotte

I know its tradition but its a ridiculous amount of time to find out a babys name I dont see any point in it. She is a very cute baby though. :)

The baptism for the princess is very soon! Can't wait to read what they named their little girl and who the godparents are.

Why do the Danish wait so long to release names? I thought waiting two weeks for Lady Louise's name was long, but this is unreal!

If the baby's name is said aloud before christening (before he/she is under divine protection), that might bring bad luck or let evil forces harm the baby in some way.
It's just a very old tradition; the wait is a bit long, but I do love customs like this one.

I think that everything went relatively quick with the twins last year and I wasn't annoyed by the tradition, but this has just felt like forever for some reason. I normally do like the tradition of keeping the name a secret until the christening, it builds up this excitement and anticipation.

So this means that even betwen them the parents do not call the baby with her name?

If I'm not mistaken (and hopefully one of our Danish members will correct me if I am), the traditions dictates that parents can call their baby by name, but only when they are alone and not in presence of other people, including family members. Of course, I strongly doubt anyone follows that custom to a tee; more likely than not most members of the little Princess' family know her name and call her with it, unless they are in company of other people.
