Boy, with a very traditional SRF name, such as Carl-Bertil, but definitely Carl as the first name. This is regardless of the name Victoria chooses should she have a boy.

Carl-Something. Perhaps Erik or Oscar, for Sofia's father.

I don't think Victoria will use Carl as a first name, I think she'll leave it for her brother to use for his son (be it this child or a future one).

I do think these two will book the recent trend in the SRF and have a boy first.
For a boy Carl will likely be in there somewhere but it may well be Prince Oscar with a Philip or Erik at long odds for middle names. There are more choices for girls' names and quite a lot of Swedish parents are not choosing traditional ones nowadays. I do like Astrid and Sylvia though, with perhaps Lilly. The godparents will almost certainly include the parents' sisters on both sides.

I'll have to think some more before I make any guesses.

I just want to point out that a couple of the "Carl Something" suggestions aren't very likely, because of their associations to Swedes. I'm afraid we would poke way too much fun at the poor prince's name.

Carl Bertil = Karl-Bertil Jonsson, the main character in a short film that's been broadcast every Christmas Eve since 1975 in Sweden. Quote a Prince Carl Bertil would have to hear a lot: I've nurtured a communist at my bosom!

Carl Oscar = Karl Oskar in Vilhelm Mobergs "Emigrants" book series, and the musical "Kristina från Duvemåla" that's based on the series. Quote a Prince Carl Oscar would hear a lot: I can't take it anymore, Karl Oskar!

Something like Carl Axel, Carl Hugo, Carl Johan or Carl Ludvig would work just fine though.

I think the baby will be a girl. I often guess this for royal babies, but girls seem to be the dominant sex in the SRF. King Carl Gustaf was the only boy out of four girls, and he went on to have two girls and one boy. Victoria and Daniel also have a girl, and so do Madeleine and Chris. Sofia herself also only has sisters and no brothers (IIRC).

If Victoria and Daniel don't use Oscar or Lovisa, then I'm hoping that Sofia and Carl Philip will instead. Some combos and other name guesses:

Carl Oscar Gustaf Theo/Teo (no particular reason for Theo/Teo, other than that I don't think Sofia and Carl Philip would choose a traditional name, but then again the SRF are unpredictable when it comes to the names of their children)
Carl Erik Gustaf Bertil (for a more traditional combo, and it would be sweet if they had a boy and his middle name was Bertil because Leonore's middle name is Lilian)
Elias Philip Hugo
Alexander Carl Gustaf Victor

Lovisa Marie Victoria
Emma Silvia Margaretha
Sophie Alice Linnea
Anna Sara Josefine

I was thinking maybe they could choose Chris O'neill or Prince Daniel as godfathers instead of the predictable Princess Victoria or Princess Madeleine.

They could use a system similar to Madeleine and Chris where they use one sister and then the other sister's husband.

Prince Daniel
Princess Madeleine
Sara Hellqvist
Jonas Frejd
Oscar Magnuson
Stina Andersson

I think Victoria is the safest choice (they seem to choose the oldest sibling for the first baby of the couple in this family), but you are right: we may see Prince Daniel as a godfather. I will never forget Daniel and prince Carl-Phillip standing next to eachother on V&D's wedding day in church. Daniel could have chosen someone else, a good friend, or his own brother-in-law to be his best man. He didn't he choose his soon-to-be brother-in-law. I think this is a sign of their good relationship. I would love to see prince Daniel as a godfather, he seems to be a very kind man.

Seeing how I have nothing to determine their taste in names, other than their dog's name ... I'm totally just gonna make guesses entirely based on the fact that they named their dog Siri and presumably like that name. So short, simple, Scandinavian, and both traditional and currently popular. And to go with Victoria's and Madeleine's kids, predictable middle names with more focus on close family than on old royal ancestors. All right.

Boy: Prince Axel Carl Erik Bertil

Girl: Princess Greta Silvia Marie Lilian

Duchy: Dalarna

Godparents:
Crown Princess Victoria
Lina Hellqvist
Frida Vesterberg
A friend of Carl Philip
Some male royal probably

Other first names I considered:
Alvar, Arvid, Bertil, Carl, Folke, Gustaf, Hugo, Ludvig, Olof, Oscar, Vidar, Wilhelm
Alma, Alva, Astrid, Disa, Ebba, Hedda, Ida, Ingrid, Matilda, Märta/Märtha, Saga, Signe, Tyra/Thyra

(And a couple of years ago I would definitely have said Elsa, but, you know ...)
