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

As i have said earlier i really hope for a prince Christopher.
There have been 3 kings of Denmark named Christopher, so yes it is indeed in the royal bloodline

Henrik has already been used before with Prince Felix Henrik Valdemar Christian, so it may not need to be used again. I agree that Alain should be one of the names. Another should be Joachim, that was not used with either of his first two sons.

I like the idea of either Noah or Lucas which are in the top ten baby names in both Denmark and France. Another idea is Andre which is one of Henrik's middle names and becomes Anders in Denmark. So perhaps:

Anders Joachim Alain Frederik
Noah Alain Joachim Christian
Lucas Joachim Alain Frederik

Also, In my opinion, it is a combination of Alain and Henrik.

I hadn't looked at it that way before, it is a mixture of both names. :flowers:

Whatever the names will be, there will most likely be the effect of those names increasing in popularity. Jyllandsposten has an article that talks about how after each Danish christening, there has been an increase in popularity of the names that were chosen by the royals. It cites the examples of Christian and Isabella, and even Joachim.

I think that is the same for every royal name. After any christening, anywhere in the world. The name of the new royal baby will no doubt become extremly popular, what is most intresting is how long that name stays popular. :flowers:

Now that we know there are Christophers in the lineage, Christopher Joaquim Henrik Alain.

That combination starts with a good strong royal Danish name, includes the father's name in the son's name for the first time and distributes the French grandfathers' influence evenly. All bases are covered.

Hope the parents agree with all of this thought process and didn't decide on something else.

rylt11 07-25-2009 12:32 PM

Yes, it would be interesting, but I wonder if that would strain the existing friendship between the two couples !

Marsel 07-25-2009 12:38 PM

I think they will choose a name that goes nicely with 'Nikolai' and 'Felix' and while Christopher/Christian/Frederik, Alain and Henri(k) are all likely to be included in the names, I doubt any of them will be Little Prince's first name.

I just thought of this: Lucas Andre Something Something

Lucas Andre sounds VERY good together.! :-)

Levi is also cute. :-)

lilytornado 07-25-2009 05:13 PM

Valentin
and Lukas/Lucas works too :smile:

Holding out for Joachim Christopher Henrik Alain or Christopher Joachim Henrik Alain

Can't wait to find out if the parents agree with this (or at least part of it!). Won't be long now. 4:19 here, so it's 9:19 in Denmark at the moment.

Marie's family is probably in Schackenborg by now, as we can see lots of royals, including Princess Benedikte and Anne-Marie are in Graasten with their families.

Here's an article that talks about what bookmakers in Denmark think about the name:

jp.dk - Barnedåb: Vi tror på Waldemar og Noah

There are 4 to 1 odds on the name Albert as the first name. A poll of the Danish people placing bets has indicated that Waldemar and Noah are also popular guesses. Some have bet that Marie will be among the names. A researcher from the University of Copenhagen has guessed that the baby will be named Joachim Holger after his father.

And here is another article that says, whatever the names may be, the odds are that those names will increase in popularity among Danish parents. The reporters cite the example of both Christian and Isabella, whose names became popular after their christenings.

Oh no. We couldn't have him named Joachim. I think the new baby's son when he is born should be called Joachim.

Prince Olivier Frederik Joachim Alain Henri

That is a very good bet ! But keep in mind that in the DRF the babies only get 4 names - and Henri is already in Felix's name. But "Oliver Frederik Joachim Alain" is a very good bet.

Here is a short video, released by DR.dk, about the speculations of the lilleprinsens name.

Do they only get four middle names?
I didn't know there was some kind of rule? :flowers:

Yes, that has been a tradition for the last about 100 years. The last person who had more than 4 was King Frederic the 9th, Queen Magrethe's father, who had about 7. His youngest daughter, Queen Anne-Marie of Greece, only has three though, but ever since 4 names has always been given to the members of the DRF. ;)
