Despite a ton of speculation and literal bets from random strangers on the internet, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry haven't decided on a name for their baby daughter. A source tells Us Weekly the couple knows they want their daughter's name “to have meaning,” but they "have not settled on one yet." That said, "There are some top picks for names but nothing concrete."

So, what about rumors that they'll name their daughter Diana after Harry’s late mother? TBD, but a source previously told Page Six that’s unlikely to happen due to the couple worrying it could increase public interest in their child. “They are highly unlikely to call their daughter Diana. Their biggest concern is that it would make her a bigger target for the media and considerably increase public interest in the child’s life,” the source said. “Whatever anybody thinks, Harry and Meghan do value their privacy and want to shield their children from the intense media pressure they have endured.”

On top of that, Meghan and Harry think the name “would place too much pressure on the child and make everything difficult, from enrolling her in school to travel. And they want her to find her own way in life.” However, “they might consider Diana as a middle name, but Princess Charlotte already has Diana as a middle name, and Harry and Meghan have not enjoyed the feeling they have been compared to — and pitted against — William and Kate in the media and by the palace.”

As a reminder, Meghan's due date is this summer, so we won’t have to wait too long to find out what name they pick.
