The top names predicted for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s third baby.
The bookmakers had Alice tipped as the top choice for a baby girl, but Ladbrokes now has Mary ahead of Alice, with odds of 7-1. Meanwhile Albert is tipped as the preferred boys name.
Mary is one of the Queen’s middle names. It was also her grandmother’s name – Queen Mary
Bets are on William and Kate’s third child being a girl, reports Daily Mail.
Jessica Bridge, of Ladbrokes, said: ‘We can’t quite put our finger on the link between Mary and the North West, but the overwhelming support means we have a new favourite in the royal baby name market.’
‘Punters are convinced the Duke and Duchess are expecting another little girl, and obviously it would be a lovely touch to honour Her Majesty’s grandmother, but it will be interesting to see if any boys’ names are backed over the coming weeks before the birth.’
Ladbrokes has Mary at odds of 7-1, followed by Alice and Victoria at 8-1 and Alexandra at 16-1, while Albert or Arthur are 12-1 for a baby boy.
