A lot of the Danish princes who became kings of Norway got their traditional names after being crowned king. Maybe they'll be able to name their child Erik or whatever they want and then once the kid is crowned (if they do have a son first) he'll get his traditional ruling name. I don't know...seems like a good idea. King Olav was christened Alexander Edward Frederik Christian...(or was it Christian Frederik?)

This question is really easy:

Traditions:

Olav, Harald, Haakon, Christian, ..

Martha, Maud, Sonja, ...
How about "Marie", "Hildy", "Ingrid", "Alexandra", and another name, which I do not favor, but it is a Scandinavian name ~ "Dagmar" :flower: ??

Where did you get that from? Crown Prince Haakon has stated in several interviews that *they* don't want to know it yet...

Actually Prince Carl of Denmark, who became King Haakon the seventh, changed his name, and his son's, Prince Alexander Edward Christian Frederik, when he was elected king by the Norwegian people, to become more Norwegian. King Olav didn't change his name when he ascended to the throne, as he, in 1957, had been Crown Prince Olav for about 52 years... We've only had two Danish Princes...

Harald is the only name of the present king, and the crown prince's got two names. There isn't really a tradition in the royal family for how many names a child is supposed to have. You have Maud Angelica, Princess Märtha Louise, Princess Astrid Maud Ingeborg and Princess Ragnhild Alexandra.

I'm leaning towards naming the baby after someone, but I'm also betting that they won't start that habit they have in Denmark with Christians and Fredriks.

Possible Boy Names:
Sverre
Magnus
Harald
Olav
Erik
All of which have been names of Norwegian Kings
if we want to step further out:
we have Hans, Knut, Erling...

For female names:
Ingeborg,
Margrethe/Margareta/Margaret (name of one Norwegian queen, and at least one Norwegian princess (the Maid of Norway.))
Blanche/Blanka - name of a queen
Kristin
Astrid
Alexandra
Louise
(Possibly Dagny, after the Crown Prince's maternal grandmother)
Sigrid

The child will also be a decendant of Queen Victoria, and there are some pretty names in those lines, as well as the other royal lines.

My bet is that the parents choose two names, like Princess Märtha Louise and Ari Behn did, one traditional, and one to be used everyday.


and can I just recommend the lovely name of Anne? (Of course all English/French people pronounce it wrong according to the Norwegian...)

Royals must withhold new heir&#39;s name

A majority of Norwegians think the new royal heir due in January will be named either Olav or Ingeborg. The public will be kept guessing, however, until the first Council of State is held after the birth.



Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit can&#39;t reveal the name they&#39;ve chosen at the hospital. Instead, Norway&#39;s constitution decrees that the name of a new prince or princess must be announced at a Council of State.

That means the baby&#39;s father himself will inform government ministers at the council, since he&#39;s acting regent while his father King Harald recovers from cancer surgery.

The Council of State (Statsraad) normally meets every Friday morning at the Royal Palace in Oslo. If the birth occurs just after a council, however, an extraodinary session can be called.

After the name is revealed to the government ministers assembled for the council, the prime minister will announce it publicly.

When Princess Martha Louise gave birth last spring, her new daughter&#39;s name was announced at the National Hospital. That&#39;s because Maud Angelica Behn wasn&#39;t granted the title of "princess," even though she&#39;s in line to inherit the throne.

The crown couple&#39;s baby is due January 22. The palace reported earlier this week that Crown Princess Mette-Marit&#39;s pregnancy has progressed normally and that she&#39;s in "fine form."

She attended a concert this week featuring her sister-in-law, Princess Martha Louise, who sings with the Oslo Gospel Choir. Crown Princess Mette-Marit left the concert early, however.

"She felt a bit unwell and went home," reported palace spokesman Sven Gjeruldsen. "But she&#39;s not sick and it was nothing dramatic."

The name has to be announced at the cabinet meeting, and have the King&#39;s approval. But I didn&#39;t think there was something prohibiting them from mentioning it on beforehand. Simply tradition, and the fact that if the King doesn&#39;t like it, they&#39;ll have a problem...

Well, the press calls her by her full name, but they did that with Crown Prince Haakon too for a long while.

I think that will pretty much solve itself when she starts to talk.

Well, I don&#39;t like the name Ingeborg. It seems so... harsh. I can&#39;t imagine a little, sweet baby girl named Ingeborg

Well, her sister is called Kristin, which is also a traditional name for princesses (from the middle ages)





I looked back on some of the names of other in the royal family, and one of Queen Maud&#39;s many names were Charlotte. It&#39;s traditional, but modern at the same time.

Seems you hit the nail

According to several reports in Se og Hør

Princess Märtha Louise and Ari only call and talk about their daughter

as "lille Ma" ~ little Ma

So Maud and Angelica as well as Maud Angelica are just a papernames, I guess.

Maybe a Carl Haakon
Josephine, we may be on the same wave length regarding names of the child of CP H and MM: I remembered from my history something about Haakon VII who became the first King of Norway ~ (however, not regarding kings & queens of "Medieval Norway".) Before he became King of Norway, his name was "Carl" and his wife&#39;s name was "Louise". I thought about adding these names to the list until I saw that you had selected those names.

In one of my foreign periodicals, there was a great section on how modern Norway" came to be. He was a staunch defier of Hitler and his regime and many of the Norweigians at that time scrawled "Haakon VII" on anything they could find ~ like at railway stations, on public buildings, etc. Yes, they were once Swedes, but Haakon VII was a truly a noble, dedicated monarch, known by general consensus, as "the living flag of his country."

I doubt very much that the name will be Carl, as it is a traditional name in the Swedish royal family, not the Norwegian. I do believe they will try to keep it to names of past reigning kings. I also think that the names Christian and Fredrik are off limits, despite them being part of King Haakon&#39;s name before he changed, and King Olav&#39;s before his parents changed it for him. One of Princess Astrid&#39;s sons are called Carl-Christian, but since he&#39;s not a direct heir to the throne it&#39;s not a matter of establishing the national pride. I think they will try to avoid, as much as possible, any connection to Sweden and Denmark.

Olav is the strongest bet when it comes to name for a boy: the Crown Prince&#39;s grandfather was called it, and one of the names of the Crown Princess&#39; father is Olaf.

Ingeborg is a strong bet, as well as Kristin, Margrethe... and as I looked at the Crown Princess&#39; family tree I discovered that her grandmother was/is called Ingrid. Also a suitable name.

Thanks for this list of names, norwegianne and the translations. Always interesting to know what names mean or where they originate from.

I like Magnus, and perhaps it is likely since it is also part of Haakon&#39;s name, as well? And Margrete for a girl.

How might one prounounce Ragnhild? As it looks? It seems like a very hard name to pronounce, lots of &#39;hard&#39; letters.
