In the Royal Baby Names thread, I suggested these combinations for Madeleine and Chris's child:

Boy

Carl Gustav (f) Johan Arthur

Girl

Lovisa Magdalena Lilian Charlotta

***
I have also thought of the following name combinations:

Girl:

Lilian Eva Silvia Maria
Sofie Lovisa Josephine Victoria
Amelie Louise Madeleine Ingrid

Boy

Frederick Carl Gustaf Paul
Gustaf Arthur Frederick Christopher
Oscar Carl Gustaf Christopher

My choices:

For a Girl:
Lillian Christina Bernadotte O'Neill
Amalie Christina Bernadotte O'Neill

For a Boy:
Carl Christopher Bernadotte O'Neill
Paul Christopher Bernadotte O'Neill

No hyphens in the last two names. No titles for now (maybe given later if needed).

Perhaps it needs to be remembered that this child will probably be brought up (raised) outside Sweden in the English speaking world of his/her father. I think that a name that is the same in English and Swedish is more likely so names like Gustav are unlikely in that form. Not sure what the English equivalent of that name is.

The name Lillian if the baby is a girl would be a nice name.

GracieGiraffe 09-08-2013 01:24 AM

I think they should do something American like combine their names:

Chatelaine.

I agree that the name will probably not be a name like Gustav, which has no English equivalent.

I think this child will be raised partly outside Sweden so i don't expect any titles. But i think the child will be born in Sweden, Christened in the Church of Sweden (maybe in Räpplinge Church close to Solliden Palace at Öland next summer) and have a place in the line of succession.

As many of you said, the name Estelle surprised us all so it's more difficult since then to predict the names. My guesses are

If a girl

Lilian Maria Victoria O'Neill

Or if a boy

Paul Carl Christopher O'Neill

Now that Madeleine is having a girl, here are my guesses:

Lillian Silvia Eva Victoria
Amelie Lillian Silvia Alice
Josephine Silvia Eva Lillian
Ingrid Silvia Eva Lillian

Now that Madeleine is having a girl, here are my guesses: Silvia Philippa Lilian Margrethe

BrazilianEmpire 11-04-2013 04:02 PM

My guess:

Lilian Victoria Silvia Mary.

But I still don't know for sure if she will be Miss Lilian O'Neill, HRH Princess Lilian, Duchess of [someplace in Sweden] or HH Princess Lilian of Sweden.

I would rather prefer Countess Lilian O'Neill, but I know it's not possible.

GracieGiraffe 11-04-2013 04:44 PM

I don't know if they'll choose Lilian as a first name, but it will most likely be in there.

Also - they should go with the more used "Lillian," otherwise the poor kid will spend her life explaining it's one "L" not two.

Archduchess Zelia 11-04-2013 05:30 PM

I somehow doubt that Lilian will be the first name of the little girl, although I'm pretty sure the name is going to be somewhere in there. I'm thinking something along the lines of Alice, Amelie, Eleanor, Elise and Josephine. I initially had high hopes for a little Saga, but if they're going all in with this title thing and make her a Princess, it's just not going to work (a little Saga O'Neill would have been smashing though) - same goes for Alma, which was one of my big contenders as well.

With the title of Princess:
Alice Silvia Lilian Eva/Maria
Amelie Silvia Pauline Eva/Maria
Josephine Silvia Lilian Maria

Without the title of Princess:
Alma Pauline Lilian (Eva/Maria/Silvia)
Clara Alice (Eva/Maria/Silvia) Pauline
Saga Lilian (Silvia) Maria

I'm so happy for her she's having a little girl as it's what she was hoping for!!! :) :) :) <3

I bet she'll have Lilian somewhere in her name. Not sure about the 1st name though, Victoria would be nice.

HRHHermione 11-05-2013 01:21 AM

I like Astrid and Annika personally.

Isabella Park 11-05-2013 01:51 AM

Princess Estelle having a little female cousin!! Wow :wub:
I'm so happy for them!
These names are my predictions for Madeleine's little girl

Alva Birgitta Ragnhild Louise
or
Clara Amélie Désirče Lilian

LadyFinn 11-05-2013 02:18 AM

I hope they break the four name tradition and choose only three names.
Louise Maria Victoria
Louise after Madeleine's best friend, Maria is a family name on Chris' mother's side and Victoria because she is Madeleine's sister and especially since she is the future Queen.

Lovisa is an old Swedish name that as been used in the Swedish Royal Family before. Excuse me, and I may be missing something here, but I don't see what is wrong with this name?

GracieGiraffe 11-05-2013 07:38 AM

Well, Madde doesn't have to go out and buy a baby name book.

She can just read this thread!

Mariel 11-05-2013 09:59 AM

I suppose Madde will be conferring with Victoria about which names Victoria will NOT use for a future child. If Victoria has dibs on Lillian, perhaps then Rhagnild? Or Ragna. I think Ragna is a Swedish name which a classmate had but maybe it's Norwegian. That is pronounced Rahgna. In Seattle we had many Scandinavians. I admired the tallest girl in my school of 1700 students, Solveig Ivarson. (I was the second tallest, I think). Solveig (sunshine) is a great name, but I'm not sure if it's Swedish or Norwegian. We had lots of both in Seattle. Some of those Scandinavian names hop back and forth between Norway and Sweden.

I think Solveig is prounced Sol-Vay, but in Seattle the unfamiliar name was usually pronounced with the harder "g" sound. Solvay O'Neill sounds good. But I'm still ready for Lillian, Lilliana, or just plain Lily.
