Princess Eugenie may honour grandad Prince Philip with rarely used royal baby name tribute

Princess Eugenie: Royal experts discuss possible baby names

Princess Eugenie’s baby could be named in honour of Prince Philip’s Greek family, according to Ladbrokes. The UK betting company released updates on the name of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s first grandchild. ITV Royal Rota podcast hosts Chris Ship and Lizzie Robinson discussed the potentials.

Mr Ship told listeners: “Currently the leading girls name is Elizabeth.

“The odds for that being the name of the newest royal baby have been slashed by Ladbrokes.

“Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s impending arrival is imminent, perhaps even days away.

“Bookies can reveal that the name Elizabeth has seen its odds slashed from 6/1 in the last week.”

He continued: “It shares favouritism with Arthur as the boy name.

“Grace is also popular, followed by Victoria, James, Arabella and Alice.

“Alice obviously is the name of the mother of Prince Philip, Princess Alice of Battenberg.

“It was also one of the daughters of Victoria and Albert.”

Ms Robinson added: “She was the third child and second daughter, I believe.

“We don’t have any Alices in the younger generation at the moment.

“There’s also a Frederick, a Florence, an Albert and an Edward.”

She told the podcast: “Edward’s a bit odd because they already have Uncle Edward.

“Although they do recycle these names all the time.

“The baby’s grandfather’s name Andrew’s not come up there though. I wonder why!”

Princess Eugenie announced her pregnancy last year.

She confirmed that the baby was expected in spring 2021.
