The world has been struck by Royal baby fever again, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wasting no time in getting their family started. 

And as per usual, in what has become somewhat of an unofficial tradition on its own, Royal fans (and a few weird randos to be sure) have taken to British bookies to bet on what name Meghan and Harry will settle on for their firstborn. 

Top predictions including Diana and Victoria, if the 7th in line to the throne is a girl, or Alexander and Albert if a boy. 

Like all things Royal, traditions will come into play, and many betting agencies are basing their top picks on names from the Royal family tree. 

But the rest of the world seems to be miles ahead of the parents-to-be, given that while on a Royal tour in Australia, Meghan revealed the couple have yet to sit down to seriously consider names. 

So while we wait, here are a few names, based on both Harry and Meghan's family trees, we predict could be on the couple's long list.
