Do you have any idees for names?

olivier290782 07-04-2003 07:45 AM

This question is really easy:

Traditions:

Olav, Harald, Haakon, Christian, ..

Martha, Maud, Sonja, ...

;) When a royal in line to the throne in Norway is born, how many names does it contain? I mean five like other royals or two?? ;)

* I guess they will only give the child 1 name :

- only 1 name for the 3 Kings Norway has had since 1905

- the child M-M is expecting will be the future King/Queen

- Haakon dropped his second given name in 1991

- Marius has only 1 given name


* I guess [hmmm, hope ?] they will choose an old norwegian name.

I don't know a lot of traditional and common Norwegian names, so I am at quite a loss on this one. But probably not Maud since it is the name of Martha Louise's daughter, and I doubt Martha since it's his sister's name and might be confusing in this generation. Or maybe Martha or Sonja but a nickname for use by the family so as not to create confusion. The same is done in the Spanish royal family where Elena's son's name is Felipe but is called Froilan and Cristina's oldest son is named Juan but called Juanito.

I was reading the Scandinavian Royals message board and one of the posters put forth a name I really like: Magnus. Although other posters mentioned that it might clash a bit with Marius and that Magnus and Marius as siblings might sound too confusing.

Josefine 08-08-2003 06:23 PM

I like Astrid

sara1981 08-08-2003 08:13 PM

wait and see if the couples will choose baby names after his grandfather's names likes as generations family! or have good names for baby!

Haakon and Mette-Marit been married for 2 years both wanted to choose names for baby!

Name the kid Chadwick. :woot: HA HA HA HAA..naw, just joking.

How aboot (Yay Canada! :flower: ), yes well anyhoo, how aboot William, or Johannes, or erm, Harald, I'm not too familiar with the Norwegian monarchs but basically all the Danish monarchs have been Christian, Frederik...Christian, Frederik, Christian Frederik...Christian...Frederik. Or how about Olav, they can call the kid Olle. :woot: :shock: :yuk:
If it's a girl, Astrid is always nice, Ingrid...(although to me, they sound like the kind of name an 80-year old nun would bear). Kristina..Madeleine, Lovisa, hmmmm...tricky business.

Name the kid Chadwick. :innocent:

Josefine 09-18-2003 09:02 AM

maybe a princess Louise

Sancia 09-18-2003 01:52 PM

Yes, Louise would be a very choice. But it's easier to find names for a girl, because in my opinion, norwegian traditional and royal names for a boy sound horrible.

Josefine 10-10-2003 05:16 PM

Maybe a Carl Haakon

moosey60 10-10-2003 07:57 PM

Carl is a traditional Swedish royal name. They would probably go with Olav/Olaf, Harald, Haakon...etc. Rasmus is a nice name, so's Matthias, Johannes...Markus, Magnus...

Norwegian male royal names are gross sounding...if they name the kid Olaf would they call it Olle? Hahha! King Olaf wasn't named Olaf at birth, maybe they can name the kid what they want now, then when he becomes king, he might get a more traditional name. (Unless they have a girl, then they'd have free choice.)

sara1981 10-11-2003 12:19 AM

I think someone said Princess M-M having baby girl also! i read in Dutch forum said that!

For a boy, I'm partial to Espen...

And, naturally, for a girl - Anja!

Hélène 10-11-2003 02:26 PM

I kind of like Olav... And Espen is cute too. But a lot of Norwegian names sounds horrible!

For a girl they could pick any classic/oldfashiond Norwegian name.

moosey60 10-11-2003 06:57 PM

Espen is the name of Mette-Marit's brother. He was convicted and sentenced to 60 days in jail. I doubt the royal family will allow her to name their son after a convicted fellon..even if he is her brother... :blink:

holly*anja 10-12-2003 12:15 AM

Ooh...forgot about that fact. Espen is the name of my darling little cousin - a perfect little blonde norwegian boy. I guess my associations with that name are far too innocent! :wacko:

Gabriella 10-12-2003 04:40 PM

I was searching a baby site which listed Norwegian baby names, and I like Erik. It means "honorable ruler" I think that is very fitting - even though it is not a traditional name. For a girl I like Sophia (the site spells it Sofia) which means "wisdom"

Josefine 10-12-2003 04:51 PM

I like princess Sofia
