Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their pregnancy in October, but the couple has yet to reveal which baby names are at the top of their list. The oddsmakers currently have Diana at the top of the betting pools, though the namesake was given to Princess Charlotte as a middle name.
Even still, most experts believe that Diana is still a viable option for Harry and Markle. In fact, the name is currently leading the pack at 10 to 1 odds.

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019. Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public. ?PA
According to Express, other popular choices are Victoria, which is an 8 to 1 favorite, followed by Alice and Grace. The top boy name, meanwhile, is Albert.
“Victoria may be favorite in the betting but it’s Diana who is running away with things in the popularity charts for Harry and Meghan’s firstborn,” Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati explained.
The topic of baby names came up during Markle and Harry’s recent visit to Australia. The former actress admitted that she and Harry have not talked about baby names, though they have received plenty of suggestions.
Even Prince Charles was open about which names he thought were in the running.
The future King of England revealed that he thinks Kylie and Shane are at the top of his son’s list.
We still, of course, do not know if Harry and Markle are going to have a girl or a boy, which will obviously play a big part in what name they choose.
Although the odds give us a good hint at what the couple might pick, the royals do not always stick with the top choices.
When Prince William and Kate Middleton were expecting their third child, the top choices were Mary and Alexander. But the pair ended up naming the child Louis, which was low on the list at 33 to 1 odds.
The odds will also change as we get closer to the due date, so fans will have to keep that in mind over the next few months.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expected to welcome their first child this spring.
