Dagny is a name I like but it's not  regal. Yes, I am told that it may be easier the second time. Unless there was a need for a c-section or something. Already the papers are making their magic.

Dear Dennism,

Long time ago, when this "naming of the baby" began, I remember reading that one of the posters , named Rachel, submitted the name of "Dagmar". When I read that, an "old memory core" came to life ~ I remember seeing a "Dagmar" who won a brass medal for "ice-skating" and I think she was from Norway. I also remember saying, "What do they call that girl ?? ~ Daggy ?? A coincidence? It's gotta be! Congratulations, Mette-Marit and Haakon. I hope your new baby is in excellent health ~ along with the mother. I think that Haakon needs a "breather" about now.

På vegne av regjeringen har jeg den store glede å gratulere kronprins Haakon og kronprinsesse Mette-Marit med en datter, sier statsminister Kjell Magne Bondevik.

- Vi gratulerer kong Harald og dronning Sonja med et nytt barnebarn og folket med en ny tronarving. Fødselen er en historisk begivenhet, siden det er første gang en datter av Norges kronprinspar blir født som tronarving. Grunnlovens paragraf 6 ble i 1990 endret slik at begge kjønn nå har lik arverett til Norges trone. Barnet som nå er født, går derfor inn som nummer to i arverekken - etter sin far kronprinsen, understreker Bondevik.

Han sender varme hilsener til kongefamilien.

- Vi sender våre varmeste hilsener til foreldre og barn, og ønsker dem alt godt.

Prime minister congratulates the Crown Prince and Crown Princess. Congratulates Harald and Sonja on the birth. Historic moment and all for a daughter to be born especially with the passing of clause 6 which allows the first born of either gender to become ruler. The baby is now second in line to the throne after her father. Sends out warmest wishes to the parents and the baby and wishes for them nothing but good things.

The prime minister's name means farmer. Interesting.

I can't get the video on NRK.no to work. I click on register and it goes to the blank green screen. What's going on?

Aftenposten chimes in on names:

Although acting regent Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit have decided what their newborn daughter shall be called, the announcement of this detail is also bound by protocol. A cabinet meeting is the required setting, and most likely an extraordinary gathering will take place on Thursday.

"We believe it will be Thursday," said information chief Oeivind Oestang at the prime minister's office on Wednesday.

Speculation about the child's name had raged before the birth. Traditionally royal babies receive many first names, and those with historical connections are often preferred.

Ingeborg, Ragnhild and Ingrid have been mentioned as hot candidates as first names, with Astrid, Martha, and perhaps even the Queen's name Sonja, as possibilities to at least come in as middle names.

Names from the days of Swedish monarchs like Louise, Sofie and Josephine are also relative favorites, at least as middle names.

There is no tradition for taking a name from the crown princess' family, and one of the hot topics of royal baby conversation is whether the modern pair will break this unwritten rule.

Well, as Haakon is the name of the Queen's brother as well as the King's grandfather it has been done before. If you should follow that, maybe Kristin would be a possible choice for name? It is a traditional royal name, and it's also the name of the Crown Princess' sister.

Or we could wait until tomorrow and see.

How traditional is it? There's been only 1 Norwegian queen with that name and she was queen for 3 years. There's been a Christine but she was German.

Now Norway waits to learn her name

A cabinet meeting is the required setting, and most likely an extraordinary gathering will take place on Thursday.

And the cannons are off. Saluting the new princess. 21 shots.



Well, only one queen Dennis, but plenty of princesses. One of which married a spanish prince. The mascots for Lillehammer Olympics in '94 were called Kristin and Håkon, royal names.

Okay. Plenty of Princesses and one of my favorite Norwegians, Kristin Lavransdatter.

Well, I've given up on the video. Barely working. Must be busy. Nice little article about the future queens of Europe:

http://www.nrk.no/nyheter/innenriks/...t/3444530.html

And as I finally go to sleep, I see that Ingeborg and Victoria are tied at 19,7%.

The Dowager Empress of Russia was christened Dagmar as one of her names. She was known within her family as "Minny"

the date of the birth is just one day difference from the date predicted earlier. i'm really impressed with the prediction. best thing was haakon was actually there for the delivery. if the baby was to be delivered tomorrow , haakon would not have witnessed the birth.

glad to know that she had a safe delivery and it's a princess as i was expecting !!
