Due to the date of birth, maybe Elizabeth II.

Yes I know she is 81 but that isn't really a reason to exclude her when they have a number of godparents.

If not Elizabeth herself maybe her daughter Princess Anne.

This is only because of the date and for no other reason am I suggesting this.

It would be wonderful if they chose Alexia to be one of the godmothers. What other friends to the crown couple have among the royal circle? Victoria?

Victoria is one of their friends. Can they choose her to be a godparent again? I also think it would be nice to choose someone that isn't godparent to a lot of babies, like Princess Martha-Louise, Prince Carl-Philip, Princess Madeleine, etc.

I don´t think, that they would choose Victoria again. It would be some kind of awkward sign towards Carl Philip and Madeleine. Something like "Choosing you twice is still 100times better than choosing your siblings"
I´d say Carl Philip and Madeleine are a hot guess. They are of the the high profile godparents (who are offspring of Monarchs) quite closely related to Frederik (2nd cousins) And if the little girl would become only half as spoilt, as some ppl are claiming it now, Madeleine would be the perfect role model
Märtha Louise I could very well imagine too...or one of the dutch Royals.
I don´t think, they would choose Felipe (or Letizia) Even though it would be a nice gesture and maybe a way to get finally over these stories on a competition between Letizia and Mary...
All together I think the combination of godparents would be close to Christian´s. With a sibling of Mary, a greek Royal (or one of the Berleburgs...maybe one of the Berleburgs would be taken instead of Joachim a second time), a personal friend or two and at least one high profile Royal.

Mary's middle sister, Patricia, I have a feeling will be one of the godparents. Perhaps Caroline Heering, Helle Reedtz-Thott, Maxima or Mathilde, Prince Gustav, maybe Amber Petty, and maybe Prince Nickolas of Greece.

I am thinking one of Mary's sisters......a Bereleburg cousin (since Pavols is one of Christian's...they will chose another cousin), Wilhem Alexander or Maxima, and two personal friends. Maybe Amber Petty but not sure if she "clean" enough. Didn't she date some one with a bad reputation.

Not Elizabeth II or the Princess Royal. They have no relationship from what I can see. A majority of Christian's godparents (are somewhat 2nd generation major royals -Victoria, Haakon, Pavlos and Mette Marit). Do they have a relationship with Phillipe or Mathilde?

I honestly think that sometimes we (I am using the royal we) think that people because they attend certain events are a lot closer than they are. Please note that I am not critizing anyone's suggestions for a possible godparent...its just an observation.

While they (all royals) have a somewhat similiar lifestyle, chosen path, etc.....picking a godparent for your child is supposed to be pick people are you close to, who you trust to raise your child in particular faith, serve as a back up parent, mentor etc. And I am not sure if some of these people (Phillipe, Mathilde, etc.) are that. You can see a relationship between Maxima and Mathilde, and that's why Mathilde being a godparent to Alexia isn't surprising. Victoria and Queen Beatrix as well. Beatrix serves as a mentor from one queen to a future queen...and will have not doubt a place of honour at Victoria's wedding. Didn't Margethe have a seat of honour at The Prince of Orange's wedding? Did Anne even attend Haakon's wedding. No, need to answer...she didn't attend and its WAY OFF topic but hopefully you get my point. And get this, she is one of his godmothers!

I do not think that they will use a name given to another young princess in the european households. So Ingrid and Elisabeth are out for first names i think.

My guesses for the first name (or second name that will be their common name) are:

I agree with you. Godparents should be people they are close to. I think they'll choose Carl-Philip or Madeleine. They may not be as close to them, because both are much younger, but they are close to the SRF I think. Don't know how close they are with Mathilde or any Dutch Royals.

Frederick is/was close to Felipe. I say no to Madeline and Carl Phillip because they are still a little young IMO. But anything is possible. If we are going to pick a younger royal..I would go with Martha Louise of Norway. I say Willem-Alexander only because they are both heirs to the throne, they seem like they get along great (I remember the pics from the Olympics, etc.).

Charlotte Marie Henrietta Margrethe

Charlotte - pretty name, is not that common in royal circles presently
Marie - Princess Dagmar's name when she became Grand Duchess of Russia and a take on Mary's own name
Henrietta - CPss Mary's mother's name
Margrethe - The Queen and the baby's grandmother


Sophia Alexandra Margrethe Ingrid

Sophia - Given name of Queen Anne-Marie's sister-in-law
Alexandra - name of Danish princess who became Queen of England; common in royal circles
Margrethe - The Queen and the baby's grandmother
Ingrid - Common Scandinavian name, but also the name of Fred's beloved grandmother

I hope its Thyra Margrethe Ingrid Elisabeth

I think Margrethe and Ingrid will def. be used as middle names. Elisabeth and Henrietta are also very possible.

I think either Ingrid (after Frederik's grandmother) or Henrietta (after Mary's late mother).

So many wonderful names have been suggested by our members, and so many of them have been repeated!
I've gone through the thread and found most of the female names, and made a little list, among with a few conclusions:

1) The most popular name was Henrietta, after Mary's mother, although most people thought that this would be a middle name.
2) Most members believe that Princess Denmark will have four names, like her big brother.
3) The other popular names besides Henrietta? Ingrid, Alexandrine, Margrethe, Dagmar, and Mary. However, many people debated the idea of Alexandrine, or Alexandra, because of Countess Alexandra, and because of the large usage of the name in royal circles. Ingrid was also disputed as it is the name of Ingrid Alexandra, the hereditary princess of Norway, and one of the daughters of Alexandra of Berleberg, Frederik's cousin. Both of the little girls are also Fred's goddaughters.

Here is a list of the names so far:
Adelaide---Adriana---Agnetha---Alexandra---Alexandrine---Alice---Amalia---Amalie---Amelia---Anesa---Ania---Anita--- Anna---Anne---Anne Marie---Annebell---Anneliese---Annika---Arabella---Ase---Astrid---Ave---Bente---Birthe---Bridget---
Dagmar---Dagny---Desiree---Dorthea--- Eilidh---Elenora---Elisa---Elisabeth/Elizabeth---Emilie---Emma---Estrid---Eugenie---Eva--- Frederikke---Fenia---Feodora---Filia---Frederika---Freja--- Gabriela---Gloria---Grace--- Hannah---Hanne---Helena---Helle---Henrietta---Henriette--- Ida---Inge---Ingeborg---Ingelise---Inger---Ingrid---Isobel--- Jane---Janne---Jette---Josephine---Juliana---Juliane---Julie--- Karen---Katarina---Katrine---Kirsten---Klara--- Larine---Laura---Lene---Leonore---Lilian---Lilias---Louise---Lucinda--- Magdalone---Magdalena---Margrethe---Mairead---Maja---Malene---Margaret---Margareta---Maria---Marianne--- Marie---Maris---Marita---Martha---Mary---Mathilde---Matilda---Maud---Mettalise---Mette---Miucca--- Natalie---Nina---Olga---Olivia---Olympia Ophelia--- Perla---Peta---Petra---Petrine---Pia---Rebecca---Renate---Renee---Rose---Rosemarie--- Saffi---Sanne---Sara---Signe---Sigrid---Sofia---Sofie---Stella---Susanne---Theresa---Thorhildur---Thyra---Victoria---Xenia

Yes, I believe so, Mari. Essentially, the guessing game continues for the next three months if Mary and Frederik follow the Danish tradition.
