Alexander and James head odds for William and Kate’s second child’s name

Traditional royal names Alexander and James are the $10 equal favourites at online bookie to be the name that William and Kate give to their second child.

Alexandra ($11) is the equal top girls name along with Victoria ($11), while Louis ($12), Arthur ($13), Catherine ($13) and Elizabeth ($13) all feature towards the top of Sportingbet’s market.

“Alexandra was heavily backed into favouritism before the Duke and Duchess had George so if they have a girl this time it could well become the frontrunner,” Sportingbet’s Andrew Brown said.

“Our punters were convinced Kate was having a girl last time but at this stage we are making it equal odds for the baby to be a royal boy or a royal girl.”

It’s a long shot that the next royal baby will be named after Australia’s current Prime Minister, with Tony an outsider at $101.

Popular Aussie names Kylie, Bruce and Shane are also $101.

Sportingbet is offering odds of $17 that the child is born on the Queen’s birthday, the 21st April.
