Okay new name for the littel prince:

Victor-Alain-Henrik-Valdemar/Frederik. What do you think of that combination of names ?

Francois is nice. Her mother's name is Francoise, so this could be a way to honor the baby's grandmother.

I'm sure that Marie will want Henri or Henrik in the name due to the shared French heritage and to honor a grandpere, and that Joachim would have no problem with that. So that one is a given. Alain to honor her father, since the other grandfather is being honored is also a strong possibility, if not a sure thing.

The rest is tricky. They would include more Danish inspired names, plus Joachim since his other sons don't carry the name.

I like Maxim, there are a few of those in my family ! It sounds very distinguished, wasn't it Maxim deWinter in DuMaurier's Rebecca?

So, Joachim Alain Henri(k) Maxim --- sort of a big mouthful, but not too bad.

There is, IMO, a very high chance that either Frederik or Christian will be in the name, due to the naming of Danish Kings alternating Frederik/Christian.

7th in line carries a kingly name?? :ermm:

I agree with JezzRuiz! It would be highly unusual if Christian or Frederik isn't included! I said in a previous post that it was a no-brainer for the third name, but what I actually meant was that Christian or Frederik will be the fourth name; that's how the present RF do it :smile:.

One name we can rule out, IMHO: Prince Michael .....:whistling:

I really wonder why they haven't announced the godparents or the name of the baby yet.I guess this christening is close,isn't it?About the godparents:I would like to see a member of the Swedish (Madeleine) and Greek (Marie Chantal) family among them.

They usually announce the godparents just before the ceremony begins. It is a tradition with the royal family.

MelinaB. 07-24-2009 01:20 PM

That late,huh?Well,we'll find out soon.I read it's gonna take place this coming Sunday,so 2 days left.

Royal Fan 07-24-2009 02:00 PM

Crown Princess Mary Alain Calvier and Princess Madeleine of Sweden

SarahMaria 07-24-2009 06:09 PM

Because of Michael Jackson and his children, I'm guessing. ;-)

Joaquim Christopher Herni or Henrik Alain --- sounds right as it rolls off the tongue. It has a nice cadence to it.

Don't know if there are any Christophers in Danish royalty and if it is wandering too far afield.

Henrik Alain Joachim Christopher or any combination of these four names.

rylt11 07-24-2009 08:06 PM

Top contenders CP Mary, Princess Madeline, Princess Alexandra (cousin, not ex-wife)
Prince Gustav, Oscar Syiesbe, Alain Cavallier

Nathalie Cox 07-24-2009 08:14 PM

I have no idea, but being the 2 grandfathers french, maybe they'll use henrik or alain, or both.

rylt11 07-24-2009 08:20 PM

I don't think they can use one without the other. It could hurt someone's feelings.

Henrik Alain together sound right. The other two names require more thought.

If it was the ex-wife it would be an interesting christening. :flowers:

nkfu,nva 07-25-2009 06:49 AM

Hi
 
From the Gothic name Alareiks which meant either "ruler of all" or "noble ruler", derived from the Germanicelement ala "all" or adal "noble" combined with ric "ruler, power". This was the name of a king of the Visigoths who sacked Rome in the 5th century.
Also, In my opinion, it is a combination of Alain and Henrik.
