Most likely names for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s baby

Most likely names for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s baby

Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank are expecting their first child in early 2021, and already speculation is intensifying on what they will name their baby.

According to betting odds released by BetVictor in the UK, there are three names people are stuck on for the little royal!

They are Alice for a girl and Arthur or Henry at equal odds for a boy.

All three are at 9/1 odds.

This has changed since the pregnancy was announced when Victoria and Arthur were the frontrunners.

"Eugenie and Jack's pregnancy announcement is the good news that royal fans have been desperate to hear all year," Jessica O'Reilly of Ladbrokes said at the time.

"The early betting suggests they may opt for Arthur or Victoria, but we can't rule out a slightly more left-field royal name."

Alice is believed to have special meaning to Eugenie as it was the name of Prince Philip’s mother.

The names Arthur and Henry are both of special significance to the royal family considering Arthur is the middle name of three royals - Prince William, Prince Charles, and Prince Louis.

Henry is the real name of Prince Harry and has strong ties with the British Royal Family.

Other votes for a girl include Grace at 14/1, Victoria at 14/1, Alexandra at 14/1, Diana at 18/1 and Isabella at 22/1.

If the baby is a boy other suggested names include Thomas at 12/1, Godfrey at 14/1, George at 18/1 and Charles at 20/1.

Eugenie and Jack may opt for an unusual name as the world saw with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex who chose to name their first child Archie.
