Alfabetssjatten gør mig til fro
Æ hedder æg, som en kyllingbarnbo
Ø hedder øg, gammel og uden sko
Å hedder åg som er skulderens bro
Sidste er bedste, det kan du tro!

I'm a native a speaker. What's the name of the letters? Hm, hard to describe in writing, but looking at how they're written in lack of the proper symbols actually gives a good hint.

Æ: You can also write this as ae. And in fact, if you pronounce (the Danish variations) of a and e, and then try to mix them, like finding the "average" of the two sounds, it's pretty close to æ.

Ø: You can also write ethis as oe. Do the same thing as before, now with o and e.

Å: You can also write this as aa, but it would be too easy if the same rule applied. Instead, I'd say this is more like the sound between o and a, but that's something I just came up with so don't take it as anything official ;)

regarding "can also be written as": If the letters æ, ø and å are not available on your keyboard, then and only then , can you use the two-letter version.
