Prins Sverre Magnus

Hans Majestet Kongen har i Ekstraordinært Statsråd på Det Kongelige Slott i dag, mandag 5. desember 2005 meddelt at Deres Kongelige Høyheter Kronprinsen og Kronprinsessen, i samråd med Hans Majestet Kongen, har bestemt at den nyfødte Prinsen skal hete Sverre Magnus.

Hans Majestet Kongen ba om Statsrådets tilslutning til navnevalget.

Hans Majestet Kongen har bestemt at Prins Sverre Magnus ikke skal tituleres Hans Kongelige Høyhet. Prinsen fødselsdag blir ikke offisiell flaggdag, og det skal ikke salutteres fra Forsvarets anlegg ved fremtidige fødselsdager.

Hans Majestet Kongens beslutning medfører ingen konstitusjonelle endringer. Prins Sverre Magnus trer inn i arverekken til Kronen etter Hennes Kongelige Høyhet Prinsesse Ingrid Alexandra.

Translation of Press Release from: http://www.kongehuset.no/default.asp

Prince Sverre Magnus

His Majesty the King has in Extraordinary State Council at the Royal Palace today, Monday 5. December 2005 announced that Their Royal Highnesses the Crown Prince and Crown Princess, in agreement with His Majesty the King, decided that the new born Prince will be named Sverre Magnus.

His Majesty the King asked the State Council acceptance of the choice of name.

His Majesty the King has decided that Prince Sverre Magnus will not be styled His Royal Highness. The Prince’s birthday will not be an official flagg flying day, and it shall not be saluted from the Military’s areas with future birthdays.

His Majesty the King’s decision will not cause any constitutional changes. Prince Sverre Magnus will be after Her Royal Highness Princess Ingrid Alexandra in the succession to the Crown.

i'm really confused with this no HRH decision..
it's like they're tyring to make the little prinsen a commoner.
how would he stand beside other baby royals, like Princes Gabriel & Emmanuel of Belgium, or Princess Alexia of Netherlands?
i know it's too soon, but what if he get married with a commoner? no title for the bride, or just 'princess'?

ps. i'm really sorry if i got too excited & offend anyone...

Sverre looks to be a nice name, but impossible to pronounce for an Australian such as myself! I have heard it is pronounced Sve - ru (with 'u' being the same as in 'but') but may be entirely off the mark. Any Norwegians who could point me in the right direction?

Congratulations to the Crown Princely couple.

A famous king. One of the most important in Norwegian history. He had a famous biography written about him. A saga, in fact..

Sverre means: Wild (sort of, not quite. Norw; villstyring, urokråke)

My dictionary didn't have the exact words but it's close to the words for willpower and firm(inflexible, unshaken) A good name for a leader.

That's a really lovely, traditional name for the prince. :) I actually prefer that to Olav (no offence to anyone. I just didn't know if it was a good idea having Olav, especially after part of Mette Marit's father's name). In the past, had the second born child normally had an official flag flying day?

Personally I think the HRH decision is a wise one. It's a way of keeping the Royal family small, and manageable in the future when Ingrid Alexandra has her own family, and not have extreme branches of HRH's being supported by the state.

It is also a way of making sure that Sverre Magnus have the chance of making his own life, as much as the second child can do with a title. His two great-aunts, lost their HRH upon marriage, and his aunt let her HRH go when she went into a career, before marriage. It wouldn't be the same for a male, and, my guess, is that that's a deciding factor.

When/if he gets married, his wife will probably be named Princess - but it really is too far in the future to tell...

Märtha Louise had a flag flying day until she renounced her HRH. Astrid and Ragnhild had them until their marriage, as far as I'm aware.

carlota 12-05-2005 06:26 AM

it's a pity sverre didn't receive the hrh. was there any reason for that?
about the name... can any norwegian person tell us how it's pronounced? sounds totally strange to me. does it have any translation in english (as for example hans - john?)

Magnus the Law Maker (lit. law mender) - anyway, it was he who revised old law and made a new code and made amendments.

Sverre! That's great! I really love that name, as I love lots and lots of Scandinavian names (if I ever get children there's a great chance I will give them Scandinavian names, maybe even Sverre. It's great!)

I think you prononouce it like someone here earlier said: Sve (e like in 'rest') - ru (u like in 'but'). It's not that difficult. But I'm not norwegian, so maybe I'm overlooking some great details when it comes to pronunciation... ;)

In my Norwegian dialect it is pronounced more like Sve (e like in "rest" or "vest") and re (with e as in "the").
