    1. Oscar is VERY traditional name to Swedish kings and princes, other traditional is Carl. Because that it was also very presumable name.

    2. Both names are beautiful. I like when kids are named after family members or dear people. Is there someone that little Alex was named after?
      Oscar is much better choice than Estelle.

  5. Nice names, a nod to Sofia's father Erik, a nod to the King's middle name Hubertus, and a nod to Prince Bertil.

    Also, CP-Victoria looks great.

  6. He was king´s uncle who died 1997. Prince Bertil was not aloud to marry until very late years when King Carl Gustaf was already a king (succesion problems). King´s father died very early and Bertil was like a spare father to king and grand father to Victoria, Carl Philiph and Madeline. They were really very close. Carl Philip and Sofia are going to move to Bertil´s and his late wife Lilian´s house later.
