Alfie and Alexandra top the leaderboard at Ladbrokes with 4/1 odds, while Betfair places Arthur (10/1), Thomas (12/1) and Isabella (12/1) with the highest odds.

However, less traditional monikers for the royals are also in running. Ladbrokes has Doria, after Meghan's mother, in consideration with 12/1 odds, along with Emily (10/1), Sebastian (12/1), Marina (12/1) and Willow (14/1).

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said, "Having picked Archie — a name that wasn't even on our list, for their first child — the odds suggest Meghan & Prince Harry could opt for a more traditional name for their second with Arthur and Diana the joint 8/1 favorites with Betfair."
