Regardless of the sex of the child, most likely a classical name will be picked out but then again, you might be surprised. The name Lilly has been mentioned on this blog which is a pretty classic name. The name Carl may be used if the baby is a boy.

For Godparents, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel most likely would be the royal godparents. I would be surprised if Princess Madeleine or her husband Chris would be chosen. The rest will either be friends of Carl Philip and Sophia or one of Sophia's sisters or cousins.

In regards to godparents I think they will choose Victoria (I've gotten the impression Sofia is closer to Victoria than she is to Madeleine, but of course I can't tell for sure), one of Sofia's sisters, a friend of Carl Philip and a friend of Sofia. I don't know who because I'm not knowledgable about their friends.

I don't think Lilly is that traditional or classic (and the more common spelling is Lily) but then again we all have different opinions on what's classic and what's not. I think it's more vintage, becoming popular in Victorian times, and again in the first half of the twentieth century. Johnny Depp named his daughter Lily-Rose in 1999 and I think that's when it started to shoot up in the charts, though I'm not totally sure. I used to have a great-aunt named Lily and my mother always said how old fashioned she thought it was when she was growing up in the '60s and '70s.

I understand where Lily comes from, I was just sharing my opinion on the classicness of the name itself rather than its usage in the family.

Sofia had a great grandmother named Lilly. I don't think Sofia would name a child after her, as she died 30 years before Sofia was even born, just thought I'd mention it. :) And Lilly is more common than Lily in Sweden, but I suppose they'd rather use Lilian anyway.

While we're at it, some of Sofia's ancestors might be interesting as inspiration, no?

Parents:
Erik Oscar & Marie Britt

Grandparents:
Stig Ingvar & Ingrid Ann-Marie
Janne Herbert Ribbe & Britt Ingegerd

Great grandparents:
Erik Andreas Emanuel & Frida Kristina
Oskar Petrus & Lilly Kristina
Lars Gotthard & Maria Elisabet
Per Gustaf & Anna Maria

I think I read somewhere that Princess Lilian had changed the spelling of her name from 2 ls to one but I am not sure if she said why she did so.

And I was in no way implying that you didn't understand. I was just stating a fact.

I had just thought you were referring to my post since you had posted just below me and were talking about a very similar topic. That's all, it was a simple misunderstanding, you of course have the right to share facts, that's what a discussion forum is about after all

Lilly could be a very nice option for Lilian since Lilian is a rather "old-lady" name over here :) (And yes, Lilly is the most usual spelling here). Lilly has been around for a while over here so it's classic but also rather modern. That could be a very sweet name :) Princess Lilly/Prinsessan Lilly. I like it!

Honestly I think they will try and out royal Vic any way they can. They wont go the untraditional route like Estelle. This baby will have a royal name and as many royal godparents as possible. They certainly wont go Maddie's route of non-royal godparents IMO.

Boy:

Prince Carl Bertil Gustaf Erik
Carl: for the long line of Swedish princes including CP and his dad
Bertil: for CP's Uncle he and Sofia are constantly compared to
Gustaf: for the king
Erik: for Sofia's dad

Girl:

Princess Louise Silvia Marie Victoria
Louise: for Queen Louise
Silvia and Marie: the grandmothers
Victoria: aunt and likely godmother

Godparents:
Victoria
Lena
CP best man
two minor royals who they can get to be, like Hubertus and possibly someone like Marie of Denmark
if they go the six route like Maddie, than Sofia may get a friend in there

Which Queen Louise are you referring to? Louise Mountbatten? I have a difficult time seeing why they would honour her instead of CG's actual grandmother, Margaret of Connaught. Or Louise of the Netherlands? Why would either of them have any strong feelings about her? I'm just curious as to whether I've missed something.

I'll personally be surprised if they choose any foreign royal godparents. I don't believe CP is close to any other European royals so I reckon it would be very awkward to ask someone he doesn't really know to be godparent of his child. Not that I would mind, the more royal godparents the merrier, I just think it's unlikely.

The choice of royal godparents rarely seems to reflect any personal relationship. Vic serves for any number of royal children, and other than Haakon and Fred, I don't think she has a personal relationship with any of them beyond 'heir events'. CP and Sofia made a point of inviting a number of foreign royals to their wedding. So yes I'd be surprised if they didn't include a foreign royal or two. Maybe a Scandi or two as the royal houses are so connected.

As for the baby's name, I don't think 'personal bond' is always a major concern in choosing a baby's name. A family name seems to be key in most royal families. Victoria caused a stir by choosing a family name based on personal bond instead of a traditional family name. There have been plenty of Louise's most importantly Louise Mountbattan. Yes she was a stepmother, but she was the one who CG would have actually known growing up, his actual grandmother having died when his father was in his young teens. Princess Christina was named in part for her stepgrandmother, and Margaretha (Sibylla Louise) Desiree (Kristina-Louise) and Birgitta (Desiree has further down name) have all given their daughters it as a middle name. There have of course been other Louise like Louise of the Netherlands and Louise of Prussia (mother of Charles III) in the family tree

Part of me thinks they may avoid a first name currently in use in the royal family, as is Margaretha already is, why I went the route Louise.

Considering all the 'Madeleine hates Sofia' stories that have been sold, I have trouble seeing Maddie chosen. I think CP and Sofia will want the future queen as godmother, no matter the sex of the baby.
