Royal Baby Names Fit for a Prince or Princess

The announcement of The Duchess of Cambridge expecting her third child with the Duke of Cambridge has prompted many to guess the potential name for the new arrival.

NEWS: CONGRATS to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge who are expecting their third child!!! Kensington Palace has just announced the news on their Twitter account! Like her last two pregnancies, Kate is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum (a severe form of morning sickness), and she is being cared for at Kensington Palace. She will not be carrying out today's scheduled engagement. Kate is not quite at 12 weeks yet. Like her last pregnancies, she is forced to announce it earlier than usual due to her sickness preventing her from carrying out duties. She will most likely be due in April or May. I'm absolutely delighted for the Cambridge family!! Wishing Kate all the best for getting through this awful sickness.

Yesterday on Twitter, betting company Ladbrokes shared the odds for four potential royal baby names.

Alice 7/1
Arthur 10/1
Victoria 10/1
Alexandra 12/1

Other names were suggested by twitter users on the possible naming of the new royal. Names like Joseph, Frances, Victoria, Edward and James were suggested.

It is expected that the Duke and Duchess will follow tradition and choose a name that follows the same trend as George and Charlotte, of which are esteemed as classic, regal names.
