The due date of the next British royal baby has now been semi-officially announced as April 25, so we are definitely in the home stretch of the guessing games regarding royal baby names. Though overwhelming bets are on the baby being a girl, blue names have to be considered as well. Below are the dozen names considered favorites—though there are also some outliers like Frederick, Richard, Alexander and Alexandra lurking on the betting lists.


By far the current favorite for a girl, the sweet and pretty classic Alice has been common in England since medieval times--and is currently seeing a revival. Royal cred includes the princess who was Queen Victoria’s second daughter, and it was also the name of Prince Philip’s mother. Rank in the UK: 27; in the US, 107.
