Royal baby mania is upon us once again with the internet-breaking news that Prince William and Kate Middleton are expecting their third child together. As Woman’s Day recently revealed, Kate is around two months pregnant and is due in March 2018.
Naturally, bookies have already begun to guess what Kate and William will name their new addition. “We’re not sure who is more excited for the latest baby news — the royal couple or our [gamblers]. More stately names are no doubt the favorite, but we’d love to see a royal Wayne,” SportsBet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen told Now To Love. Scroll down to see more royal baby name predictions!
If there’s one thing we know for sure, it's that Will and Kate will most definitely opt for a classic choice, drenched in history. Their first-born son’s full name is Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge, a nod to the Kings that came before him. While their daughter is Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, in honor of Queen Elizabeth and her late grandmother Princess Diana.

So far, the favorite for a girl is tied between Alice and Victoria at $20 — both regal-sounding names with long-standing royal ties. Alice was also a front-runner during the countdown to Princess Charlotte's birth in 2015. It was the name of one of Queen Victoria's daughter and Prince Philip's mother.
Mary and Alexandra come in for the second spot at $24. In light of the 20-year anniversary of her death, Sportsbet also predicts another Princess Diana could be joining the history books, with a $40 chance. In addition, other names in the running could be Grace, Elizabeth, Frances, Caroline, and Catherine/Kate.
Can you imagine a Prince Henry of Cambridge? What about Prince Arthur? Sportbet has their money on the above monikers for a baby boy, with both names at $20. But given Prince Harry’s full title is actually Prince Henry of Wales, Will and Kate might be keen to mix it up. Considering Prince Philip’s recent retirement, it could be a touching tribute to the great-grandfather to name their third child after him. In addition to Henry and Arthur, other names in the running could be
Frederick, Albert, Philip, James, Alexander, William, Edward, and Andrew. We can't wait to meet Kate and William's new bundle of joy in a few months!
