Good one! Hadn't though of that.

That's sounds like a great name, it doesn't seem too old, nor too modern.

Do any members know how long it's been since the name was used among royalty in Norway?

roughly 800-900 years, from the top of my head. The last one was King Sverre.

(if you don't count the Norwegian television series "Hotel Cæsar" which had a character called "Prince Sverre".)

Thanks, maybe it's time the couple brought the name 'Prince Sverre' into modern times. It sounds like it would fit into the family too (IMO).:)

How would you pronounce Sverre?

I think it's going to be a boy. As for a name...I like Aricin Olav. Although now that I've seen it, Sverre looks interesting. Magnus would be good too, but kind of similar to Marius...

I voted for a boy.

But I don't no any norwegian name apart from the ones used by the Royal Family.

Mathias sounds very sweet, Sverre sounds odd (in portuguese pronunciation of course) and Magnus sounds too close to Marius.

But I subscribe what all of you say - let's hope everything turns OK to the crown princess and she delivers a healthy and strong boy or girl (I would like the baby to have lots of hair too to avoy 2 years speculation like it happen with Ingrid ).

Regards,
mtbcm:)

For a boy I think the baby will be named, Harald, but if it is a girl, I think she will be named Anna, or Ana. Although, MM and Haakon do pick nice names, so whatever they decide, I am sure it will be beautiful!

I really hope it would be a boy, since we have so many little princesses in the recent years. But for me it's hard to choose a name since I am not used to norwegian royal names, but I like Mathias and Sverre. And Olav would be a nice choose too.

I was very sure that Ingrid Alexandra would be a girl - after the birth of King Olav, every firstborn in the Norwegian royal family has been a girl, but I'm not sure about this one.

I'm hoping it will be a boy.

But I think it is going to be a girl. Popular mythology has it that pregnant women with a wide-ish 'bump' will give birth to girls. Mette Marit's fits that description.....But then again, based on that kind of mythology, everyone expected Letizia to get a boy! And we all know what happened there! :)

As for names..I love some of the ones you all put out there, like Magnus, Ida etc.
Like the name Thalia too.
Or, how about Olga?
OK, maybe that's too Russian-sounding...

For some reason I feel like it is a boy. And I agree on Magnus and Olaf for great names although Thor or Odin would be great too There are some great norwegian old male names, so there would be lots of choices!

I want to see a little Princess and call her Sonja-Astrid. I think that would be lovely.
