Kate Middleton's pregnancy was confirmed yesterday (12/3) and now the world is going royal baby crazy. I'm a betting man, and I'm glad that the Brits are too. They are already taking bets on “What Will The Royal Baby Be Named?”. 

If the baby turns out to be a girl, odds are  good that they will name their firstborn after Queen Elizabeth (8-1). The odds of them naming the baby after William’s mom, the late Princess Diana, are 12-1. The odds aren't good for the baby being named after William’s stepmother Camilla (66-1) or Sarah Ferguson (250-1).

If the baby is a boy there is less bets. If it’s a boy, John and Charles are the 10-1 favorites. George and Mary, both names of former English monarchs, are contenders at 14-1. So is David, at 20-1.

Jessica Bridge of the betting outfit Ladbrokes says:

"Kate and Wills pulled the wool over our eyes, but now attention turns to the name of the baby, and it looks like the couple will stick with a traditional name. If they're expecting a girl, who better to name her after than Her Majesty?"

So if you could have cared less about this story, but love making money, happy betting and your'e welcome.
