King Haakon VII opened the first session of the Norwegian Parliament in 1906.

When Prince Carl of Denmark became King of Norway, do you think he made the Norwegian people happy by taking the name Haakon for his regnal name?

From everything I've read, the Norwegian people were thrilled that their new king took a very traditional Norwegian name.

I wonder how many Norwegian names Prince Charles (Carl) of Denmark considered before he chose Haakon.

I think maybe ``Haakon'' looks and sounds strange to English-speaking ears but it's not an uncommon name among Norwegians. And I even know some Norwegian-Americans who have this name and seem to like it.
