  1. Välkommen lilla flicka. Jag hoppas att de passar i namnet Astrid-Ingrid. Det är ett stort namn, skulle jag vet. <3 <3 <3

  2. The use of the letter W was much more prevalent in Sweden until the late 19th century when several spelling reforms were enacted (the most famous one being a bit later, in 1906: http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stavningsreformen_1906). Using the letter in names might be because of family naming traditions dating back to before the reforms. Though it might be an “invention” in order to make the name more unique (not very jante, this practise). In this case, though, the name comes from Prince Daniel’s mother.
