After the christening. It's usually in the same announcement along with the christening and baby's names. Look for it on the DRF's official site. If the baby comes in early May, the christening will probably be around the first or second week of August.

I've guessed before, but I'm gonna guess again. :-D

Noah August Christian Henri
Amélie Louise Renee Francois

I could also picture them not hournering any family members though, and really, besides protocol, why would they need to do that? It's not that common in Denmark, and Joachim and Alexandra didn't really use to many names from family.

Other names that I think are great for first name, and that I believe could be potential names for the new Prince(ss). :-D

Marius
Magnus
Tristan
Samuel
Andreas
Theodore
Christoffer
Phillip
Sebastian
Oliver
Jakob

Sophie
Louise
Amalie
Emily
Caroline
Mathilde
Pauline
Tabitha
Theresa
Regitze
Sienna
Cianna
Mille
Laura
Augusta
Emma
Emilie
Esther
Malia(H). :-D
Jeniffer. :-D

I just think that it is SO ufortunete that the name Alexandra can't be usen anymore. :-D

I absolutely agree with you. I don't think they would name a boy Alexander for the same reason.

Is it a traditional for Danish royals or for all Danish people?

It is a Danish tradition not only a royal one. I did not know the names of my nephews and nieces until their baptism about 3 months after their birth. I don't think all Danes follows the tradition though - but many do.

Billed-Bladet has an article about the naming of Joachim and Marie's baby. The royal editor of the magazine thinks that if the child is a girl, she will be called Louise Francoise Alexandrine Marie, and if the child is a boy, he will be called Albert Marie Holger Frederik.

Billed-Bladet - Marie og Joachim - hvad skal barnet hedde?

Marie for a boy's name? Even if it is a 2nd or 3rd name seems odd to me. I like Albert though. How does this person possibly "know" the name of the baby. I thought the DRF was tighlipped about their new additions until the christening.

On another note I would love for her to have twins. Two little girls would be awesome. I think she is very close to delivery, but I doubt 2 babies. She has such a small frame. I think that's why she looks larger around her middle.

Can't wait. I know this is an exciting time for Denmark, Joachim and their sons.

Good luck to Marie and Joachim.......Hope this is not the only pregnancy for this gorgeous couple. Their babies will be beautiful.

I agree, Tx Pride, that Marie seems unusual for a boy's name especially here in the States. However, I have been surprised before -- for example, Princess Caroline's son's name "Andrea" still throws me every time I see it. Don't get me wrong, I think it's a lovely name, but I'm always reminding myself that he's a son, not a daughter. Naming conventions must be a bit different in Europe.

Regarding twins...I do think it would have been announced by the Danish Royal Court but WOW what a great surprise it would be!

As far as I know, a French boy would never be given the name Marie as a first name, but only in combination with other names.

As for Andrea, you have to remember that his father, Stefano Casiraghi, was Italian and that's probably why he was given an Italian name.

Prince Joachim of Belgium has 'Maria' in his name, and Prince Amadeo of Belgium has 'Marie' in his name. Prince Felix of Luxembourg also has 'Marie' in his name. It does seem strange to give this name to a male child, but perhaps it is a family tradition.

I really do hope that Joachim and Marie have a girl, though. It would be lovely to see a new little princess, especially since most of the Danish royal children are male.

Naming conventions are different all over Europe, it depends on the region and the language.
Andrea is traditionally a male Italian name. Only since the ship "Andrea Doria" people call their daughters Andrea some countries other than Italy. They heard the name, didn't speak Italian and thought it would be a lovely name for a girl.

It is a tradition in catholic Europe for little boys to have Marie/Maria as a second/third etc but never as a first name.
So it is an old tradition but not necessarily a royal one but more a catholic one.
As the baby won't be catholic and this isn't a tradition in the Danish Royal Family, I doubt he would have Marie as one of his names.

Naming a boy after Virgin Mary is not unusal in some Catholic countries. The King of Spain was named Juan Carlos Alfonso Víctor María.

Joachim and Marie naming a boy after a famous soccer player is a lot more likely then naming him - a Lutheran Protestant - after the Vergin Mary .

In that perspective a name could be:

Michael Peter Diego Edison

Michale after Michael Laudrup
Peter after Peter Schmeichel
Diego after Diego Maradonna
and Edison after Pelé

On the other hand, taken Joachims interest in cars into considerration a boy might more likely be named after famous racing drivers.

I doubt if he'll take the liberty of naming a child after a racing driver. He is a royal and will adhere to rotal protocol, using historic names of ancestors or royals from the past. Perhaps a little mix with names of living family members.

Prince Joachim is very formal in his demeanor, even though he thouroughly enjoys racing, discos, etc.

Oh, Lilla, you are very funny! You forgot Becks and Ronaldinho.

I agree with the other posters. I'm sure that the baby will have names that are traditional for the royal family. I would like to see Marie's parents honored with having one of their names included in the baby's names, like Frederik and Mary did with Christian and Isabella.

It was a joke dear Rylt11 .

I too would be very surprised if the child was not named according to tradition.

In Denmark Kristian is a boys name only. The name can't be used for girls unless an a or an e is added forming the names Kristiana and Kristiane or the last two letters an is replaced with either the letters na or the letters ne forming the names Kristina and Kristine.
