Well, it’s official: Meghan Markle has given birth to a healthy baby boy at home in Frogmore Cottage. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed the birth on their Instagram, and Harry spoke to the press, expressing his admiration for his wife and his joy about becoming a father. Now, there’s one thing that are anxiously anticipating with bated breath: the announcement of the baby’s name.
In traditional royal fashion, the newborn’s name wasn’t revealed in his birth announcement. Rather, the whole family will make their public debut in two days (mark your calendar), and announce the new royal baby’s name. After all, as Harry noted, they’re still mulling over a few options, but since the baby was a bit overdue, they’ve “had a little bit of time to think about it.” We won’t know for sure until Wednesday…but we have some good guesses what the little one’s name may be.
According to U.K. betting site Ladbrokes, the top runner with a 5/1 likelihood is Arthur, which is a middle name of both Prince Charles and Prince William (and also the first name of Pippa Middleton’s son). Next is Alexander with 6/1 odds, and Albert with 8/1 odds. Rounding out the top five are James and Philip.
Now, these are all quite traditional names for the royal family, but Meghan and Harry have strayed from tradition in the past—so who’s to say they won’t now? Also listed on Ladbrokes are a few more wildcard options, including Bradley, Barack, and Ross—though admittedly, the odds for those names are quite low.
Only time will tell, but for now we know that Baby Sussex will surely have a name as cool and polished as his parents. No matter what his initials end up being, we think these monogrammable picks could add just the right dose of personalization to his nursery.
