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.
- Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting a baby girl later this year.
- The couple confirmed they are having a daughter during their interview with Opray Winfrey in March.
- In other royal news, could Prince Harry and Meghan Markle give up their titles for good?
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.

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.
People are placing their bets right now on what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will name their baby girl. The front runners? Elizabeth and Diana. I'm partial to Elizabeth, but even Liz works for me. Princess Liz has a nice ring to it.🤣 #Q13FoxMay 12, 2021

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!
