Wasn´t this already your choice for the dutch baby-princess
If the names on Norwegianne´s Queen-list would be the basis...I would choose "Anna"
BTW we are searching far more girl names here...it could be a boy too...but I hope it´s a girl...I mean I would welcome a boy too, but the idea of a girl is nicer...

Well, his brother would be named Marius...Marius, Magnus, Marius, Magnus...it sounds like pretty much the same thing. Anyways, it is a possibility because Haakon&#39;s second name was Magnus.

Most name experts, those who have been interviewed in the papers anyway, seem to think that Magnus is out of the running just because it&#39;s one of Haakon&#39;s names.


But I like it.

I am all for Magnus&#33; I think it shouldn&#39;t be out of the running just because it already is part of Haakon&#39;s name -- all the more reason&#33;

And please, no Olav if it&#39;s a boy. It makes it sound like the baby will come out of the womb an 80-year-old man&#33;

While I respect that the name would honour Haakon&#39;s grandfather and numerous predecessors, and even Mette-Marit&#39;s father, it just sounds too old and unfair to give to a baby. Maybe the name would suit him more when he is in his fifties and onwards, but that name on the playground at 6 years old? as a teenager? as a young adult dating women?

Since there are kids running around with the name Olav/Olaf, it&#39;s not that uncommon. But I see your point, even if I don&#39;t completely agree.

What is the likelihood of the baby, if it is a boy, being named after its paternal grandfather, Harald?

I would like to see Magnus Olav Frederik Harald for a boy or Astrid Ingeborg Alexandra Märtha if it&#39;s a girl.

I don&#39;t think it&#39;s too likely they&#39;ll name the child after the grandfather. Perhaps somewhere in the name but not as it&#39;s first name. :)

It looks like we need to focus on girls names now ...

From the above suggestions, I like Cathrine, Sophie and Isabella.

I like the name Kristin as many have suggested, but I don&#39;t think that it&#39;s a very grand or regal sounding name for a future Queen, but that&#39;s just my personal preference.

You´re right...someone of these cute little princesses should be named "Josefine" or "Josefina"...it´s a beautiful name&#33; But I think it would be nicer, when this baby-girl wouldn´t be named Josefine, but the daughter (if she would get one...) of the heir of your country... "Josefine" the princess of Sweden, and daugther of the crown princess of Sweden&#33; It´s even more likely that she would call her daughter like that...but we just can wait and see...btw. I wonder if Victoria will become godmother

That´s the question... I know that some kings/queens are godmother/godfather of two heirs, but Catharina-Amalia and Baby X are almost of the same age...and they will be probably baptized at the almost same time...and there it would be a little bit strange, when they would have the some godmother... it would be like at a band-conveyor in a factory...give me the next baby, please... to be a godmother should be something special&#33;
