Nikolai seems to be popular name in Denmark. I am currently reading a book on the history of Denmark and there have been several Nikolais/Nikolajs in Denmark's history, Nikolai Grundtvig for example. The actor Nikolaj Lie Kaas also springs to (my) mind. However, what Lindy writes sounds interesting and plausible.

Anyway, my guess: Benoit Henrik Valdemar Frederik

I have come up with some more possibilities...hopefully pleasing to both the French and Danish sides of the little Prince's families...

Only first names, because middle names are for honouring other family members (like Henrik, Alain, Christian, Frederik, Valdemar, Joachim, etc)

My list:
Rupert
Thomas (or Tomaas)
Oscar
Sebastian
Olafur (sounds like Oliver)

I can tell you it definitely WILL NOT be Alexander as some people have been suggesting...to name your son a similar name as your husband's first wife is a bit odd, family name or not...Marie just wouldn't do it!!!

I can't wait to see the photos! Will the godparents be announced in advance, or just on the day of the christening?

Christening Announcement

We'll know his names on July 26th

I definately think Alain and Henri will be amongst them, and certainly Christian. I will be surprised if the latter is not.

A new guess:

Godfathers:
Crown Prince Frederik
Charles Cavailler
a male family friend of the couple
Prince Henrik or Alain Cavailler

Godmothers:
Crown Princess Mary
a female family friend of the couple
Françoise Grassoit (Marie's mother)
Countess Sophie of Wessex

That isn't entirely true. One of Nikolai's godfathers is the Earl of Wessex.

I will say: Frederik, Christian, Henri, Alain

The final result will be on 26 July, the day of the christening.
