Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be welcoming Baby Sussex before we know it. Needless to say, the world is in a frenzy awaiting the baby-to-be’s arrival. Back in November, bookies were overwhelmed by bets predicting Markle would be giving birth to twins. While those theories have died down a bit, there’s a new storm of prophecies being proclaimed. This time, they all have to do with the name the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will give their baby.

The top contender? Elizabeth. “A flurry of bets have been placed on ‘Elizabeth’ in the last few days, forcing us to cut odds from 16/1 to 6/1,” explains British betting company Ladbrokes.com. The reason for the sudden sway is because Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday is April 21, and lots of people think Markle may give birth the same day. So the moniker does seems fitting for a baby born on or near the Queen’s birthday. “Meghan’s due date is desperately close to the Queen’s birthday, and the stars might just align for the latest royal arrival,” says Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati.

If you’re not convinced the pair will opt for the Queen’s namesake, or have a strong feeling they’re having a boy, check out a few of the other baby names topping bookies’ lists as of April 2.
