Princess Eugenie’s most likely baby names – with bookies offering odds on Boris

Her Royal Highness Princess Eugeniegave birth to her first child, a baby boy, alongside her husband, Jack Brooksbank on 9th February 2021.

The Queen is said to be "delighted" with the news of her 9th grandchild, Buckingham Palace said, but did not give any information about the Royal child’s name.

Princess Eugenie and her Royal sister, Princess Beatrice, have unique monikers, and bookies have grasped the opportunity to offer odds on.

Ladbrokes have listed 37 suggestions for punters to bet on, with Boris, after the Prime Minister, and Piers, after Good Morning Britain host, Piers Morgan, on the list.

The favourite name for Princess Eugenie’s baby boy is Arthur with odds of 4/1.

James is next on the list with 6/1 and Frederick, Albert and Edward all tie with punters welcome to place their bets at 8/1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said the betting is likely to suggest Eugenie and Jack will choose a "traditional royal name" but there have been suggestions of out-there names too.

Horatio, Quentin and Xavier are on the list with odds of 25/1 and a very rockstar esque suggestion of Axel is at 33/1.

Mr Apati said: "The betting suggests Eugenie and Jack will choose a traditional, royal name, although a handful of punters seemingly reckon the happy couple will opt for something a little more out-there."

He also said the likes of Boris and Piers have been suggested too, but Mr Apati believes it is "unlikely" the royal family will be welcoming a Boris to the world "any time soon."

Eugenie, who is 10th in line to the throne, reportedly broke Royal tradition when she announced her new arrival.

To announce her baby news she shared a black and white snap of her and Jack holding their kid's hand on Instagram.

Traditionally, members of the Royal family announce births at a press conference outside the hospital where their child is born.

Official portraits of new Royal babies are often typically released to celebrate their births – as opposed to via social media posts.
