Viggo.  Hey it's  family name! ;)

Make that Viggo Christian Frederik Henrik.

Oh, okay. Someone had mentioned it 'was going to be' but I guess they meant that it would be the best name or something.

Someone did point out that it would fit tradition

Christian IX--Frederick VIII--Christian X--Frederick IX--??

(Actually since the 1500s, every Danish king has been named Christian or Frederik. Margarethe broke with tradition because she wanted a) to honor her father and b) to 'even' it up. So Crown Prince Frederik will become Frederik X and his son (if Christian is chosen and they follow precedent) will become Christian XI.)

Here's some of what was gleaned from the press conference that Frederick held:


"We had time to pack a little bit, and drive calmly from Fredensborg."

"It was a good birth. Mother and child were part of it the entire time, and it was a good birth."

Mary had an epidural as Alexandra had.

It took 10 hours from start to end

Frederick apparently cut the umbilical cord himself

"Mary is well, and was very brave. She has started, little by little, breast-feeding him."

"We'll take the time it takes to leave the hospital."

He made a cute hand gesture demonstrating how big the baby was. Awww.  :) It was a gesture repeated later by Prince Henrik

Christian Lipton-upon-Avon

or

Frederick Gibson Minogue Christian

He isn't your son, now is he? ::)

Why do all press say it's going to be Christian >:( There must be nicer names...

Congrats !

I bet a new name will be given.  Something honoring Denmark and Australia !  :D

Given both parents' good looks, the boy will be a knockout!!

I am hoping that if Their Royal Highnesses are monitoring this board (and many royals do), they will know this topic is one way of us sharing in the tremendous joy they must feel in having this new young person in their lives!

 I'm going to go way out on a limb here and say the baby will be named Donaldson Alexander Knut Christian. ;D
