We've a little while longer to officially find out Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby name for their daughter—but that hasn't stopped royal fans trying to work it out ahead of time.

The couple announced that they were expecting another child on Valentine's Day earlier this year with a sweet photograph taken by Misan Harriman. 

2021 has already shaped up to be quite the year for royal babies. Princess Eugenie welcomed her first child with her husband Jack Brooksbank in February, a boy named August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.

Meanwhile Zara and Mike Tindall welcomed their third child, also a baby boy, named Lucas Philip Tindall, at the end of March.  

Meghan and Harry later confirmed in their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey that they are expecting a baby girl, with Meghan Markle's due date falling some time in the summer.

The baby girl will be a little sister for the Sussexes' first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, who was born in May 2019. So, what is Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby name likely to be?

What will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle call their daughter? 

It's thought that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could pay tribute to a family member with their daughter's name choice. Ladbrokes recently slashed odds on the name Philippa—which would be a touching tribute to the baby's great-grandfather, the late Prince Philip.

There are also good odds on the name Diana, in honor of Prince Harry's late mother, the Princess of Wales, while the name Lily is becoming a more popular choice for baby Sussex, a nod to the Queen's affectionate nickname, Lilibet. Both of these two names are highly popular predictions on Twitter. 

Betting expert OLBG notes that lots of names beginning with A, such as Alice, Alexandra and Alicia, are also increasingly popular choices—most likely because of how well they go with the name Archie. 

It won't be too much longer before we find out!
