Move over, all-knowing goddess. There’s a new gal on top of the mount.
Say Gooddag to the Danish princess, who was Christened yesterday:
Athena Marguerite Françoise Marie. She is the daughter of Prince Joachim and Princess Marie. Françoise is Princess Marie’s mother’s name, Marguerite is after Queen Margrethe. She has three godmothers and three godfathers, and based on her name alone, I’m volunteering to be a seventh godparent.
She joins three older brothers, Prince Nikolai William Alexander Frederik and Prince Felix Henrik Valdemar Christian from a previous marriage, and Prince Henrik Carl Joachim Alain, who is also Marie’s child. They have some well-named first cousins as well.
Do you like the “royal” way of naming? Would you use more than one middle name to honor family? I’ll let you in on a little secret: my daughters are both named in this vein. Couldn’t help myself!
