Julian is nice but doesn’t fit a Swedish prince at all...

Well I’d say the same for all of them ... but maybe Anglo names are more common in European countries now...

Herbert? That’s the worst of the three names they gave him, IMO. I like Julian as it’s pronounced in English, but I have yet to listen to how it’s pronounced in Swedish, so I’ll just say it seems an odd name for a Swedish boy. But hardly the most odd out of all the grand babies in the family.

It's not easy to "measure" these things, but I guess both Alexander and Gabriel are fairly established Swedish names (there was a very famous Swedish nobleman in the 17th century by the name of Magnus Gabriel) but in these contexts Julian is new to me. How did CG pronounce it?

I agree, IMO each of the siblings made one miss:

Princess Estelle, Princess Adrienne, prince Julian.  Confused

It's kind of sad, there are so pretty nordic names out there.

Yul-yan, I think.  Wonderful name.  Not Anglo Saxon, thank goodness.  Let’s hear it for variety!

One thing bothers me: I get the impression, Carl Gustav chooses the Dukedoms very, very careful for CPs sons.

Alexander - Södermanland (he will get Stenhammar)
Gabriel - Dalarna (to "honour" his mother.   )
Julian - prins Bertil`s old dukedom.

Is there some personal connection to the other Dukedoms? Why got Leonore Gotland? Because Madeleine likes horses?  Huh?  Ist there a personal connection to Ångermanland (Nicolas) or Blekinge (Adrienne). Are there historical reasons?

Does anyone know more?

I think it’s CG being a salty old sexist fracker Beer

Ah, I like it better as it’s pronounced in English then, with the hard “J”. You are quite right about the variety aspect. A lot of European royals went for the same/similar versions of the same names in the past 20 years, so Julian is a definite stand out.

Estelle is by far the worst name among all the grandchildren IMO. Not in any way suited for a queen regent of Sweden.

I'm perhaps showing my Swedishness here but I prefer the way Julian is pronounced in Swedish, with a "y" sound. It is quite a calm way to pronounce the name (yep I know it will be just me who thinks this, I have a weird mental association with words and emotions). But I like the name. These two have always picked slightly unusual yet adorable names.

For pronunciation purposes, think of Yul Brinner and you're halfway there! Or the way Swedes pronounce "Jul" meaning Christmas.

One thing that worries me is that although he is not  HRH, he will have a lifetime of having his name mispronounced by people from other countries who do not know how a Swedish "j" is pronounced. We only have to look at Eugenie to know how difficult names can translate.

Halland is not a surprise duchy. I can imagine CP and Sofia pushing for that as early as Alexander. The post about why CP got historic duchies for his kids and Madde got the more distant/unusual ones is interesting. Maybe Gotland for Leo as it is not on the Swedish mainland and she was born in the US (read into that what you may!).
