Baby Sussex: Harry and Meghan set to pick this traditional name

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are set to welcome their first child into the world in the coming months. Picking a baby name is one of the biggest decisions any new parents will face and it’s no different for Harry and Meghan.

There’s even more pressure on the pair as the world will be waiting to hear what name the beloved couple pick for their baby.

Many people believe they will pick Diana if they have a daughter, after Harry’s late-mum, however, new reports have seen a spike in one girls name and we adore it.

Bookmaker Coral has found that Victoria is officially the front-runner if former Suits actress Meghan gives birth to a baby girl.

Victoria has been a popular name with the royals for generations and is a perfect option for Harry and Meghan’s first born.

The name Victoria is the Latin word for 'victory' or 'conquer' and is used as the feminine form corresponding to the name Victor.

Victoria was the name of the goddess of victory in Roman mythology.

The name is the current favourite at 8-1, followed by Diana at 10-1 and Alice at 12-1.

If the Duke and Duchess welcome a boy it is believed they will call him Albert. However, other reports claim Harry is hoping to honour his grandfather Prince Philip by picking Philip as his son’s moniker.

Albert is currently at 10-1. Other popular choices include Arthur and Alfred.

We are so excited for Harry and Meghan to become parents. There’s no doubt they’ll pick the perfect name for their baby boy or girl when the time comes.
