Name and christeningEdit
As with his brothers and cousins, his names were not revealed until his christening, which took place on 26 July 2009 at the Møgeltønder Church, where older brother Felix was also christened. At his christening he was given the names Henrik Carl Joachim Alain.
His forenames all have a family significance:
- Henrik is after his paternal grandfather, Henrik, Prince Consort of Denmark.
- Carl is possibly after Count Carl Johan Bernadotte, the last surviving great-granduncle of the little prince, who attended his christening; Carl is also the Danish form of Charles, which is the name of Marie's brother, and also one of Prince Henrik's godparents.
- Joachim is after his father, Prince Joachim.
- Alain is after his maternal grandfather, Alain Cavallier.
His godparents are the Crown Princess of Denmark, Britt Davidsen Siesbye, and his maternal uncles Charles Cavallier and Benjamin Grandet, Christian Scherfig.
