William and Kate Baby Name Odds: Place Your Bets


Just hours after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced they are expecting their first child, the bookies are already speculating on what the baby will be called.

William Hill is offering odds of 10/11 that the baby will be a boy and the same price for a girl.

The favorite names are Frances and John, both with odds of 9/1, with Charles, Victoria and George all 10/1. There are also odds of 12/1 the newborn will be called Diana, Phillip, Richard or Spencer.

"We fully expect that the betting public will get involved in speculating what the baby will be called," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

"When William and Katherine got married we were bowled over by a million pounds' worth of bets and we predict similar levels of excitement before the birth of their first child."

Odds on hair color are 6/4 brown, 2/1 blonde, 5/2 black and 8/1 ginger.

The last guy I had a serious crush on was named Francis. I hope he doesn't read ONTD.
bittermunchkin 4th-Dec-2012 01:38 am (UTC)
Did he go by Francis?
redaodai 4th-Dec-2012 01:38 am (UTC)
Yeah, that was his first name.

I think it will be okay due to Kate's genes.

bodyline 4th-Dec-2012 01:35 am (UTC)
Attractive is a big stretch. The best we can hope for is for this baby to look normal lbr
foxylov3r 4th-Dec-2012 01:38 am (UTC)
prolly not and every british royal who starts off cute has their cuteness beat out of them by the Windsor genes

not even Diana saved william
black_swan87 4th-Dec-2012 01:39 am (UTC)
very very very low
myxwill 4th-Dec-2012 01:42 am (UTC)
I mean at least William has Diana's genes. I think kate's pretty, but in genetics two wrongs do make a right so IDK.
akasha6915 4th-Dec-2012 08:57 am (UTC)
LBR, it will not matter if that kid is attractive, still going to end up on the eligible bachelor list and be desired for their title and money alone. Looks mean shit.
pikapika217 4th-Dec-2012 01:32 am (UTC)

hobnailedboots 4th-Dec-2012 01:33 am (UTC)
I'd bet on it being a girl called Elizabeth Anne
moonagedaydream 4th-Dec-2012 05:51 pm (UTC)
That's my name! lol I was about to say my last name as well and realized that was very stupid. My last name is also a royal one though.

Rachel: If it's a girl, Rain.
Ross: Veto.
Rachel: Why?
Ross: Rain? "Hi, my name is Rain. I have my own kiln, and my dress is made out of wheat."
Phoebe: I know her! I bought a homemade soap from her at a Dead show.

i'm glad ross at least had some naming input for emma, because i just rewatched a bunch of s1 clips on yt and the nerve of susan to expect ROSS' KID have her name included just made me really pressed lol.
ride_the_jitney 4th-Dec-2012 03:20 am (UTC)
Is it just me or is "Veto" sounding good?

omg this entire thread.♥
bodyline 4th-Dec-2012 01:33 am (UTC)
Queen Alice or Queen Frances please. I want a classic name but not one that a previous monarch had (so not Elizabeth, Mary, Victoria, etc).

I'd also vote for Estelle but I think a princess for another monarchy has that name rn? Maybe Noelle then.
mistycreed 4th-Dec-2012 01:41 am (UTC)
I like Alice a lot. :3
nappingathena 4th-Dec-2012 01:48 am (UTC)
Estelle is the future queen of Sweden, Crown Princess Victoria's daughter.

I like both Alice and Frances.
theotherqueen 4th-Dec-2012 02:41 am (UTC)
I like Charlotte Diana for a girl!
miss_bushido 4th-Dec-2012 06:08 am (UTC)
That's a good one!
lostinshalott 4th-Dec-2012 03:07 am (UTC)
OOOoo I like Frances but it reminds me of Lady Jane Grey's mum and she was a bitch!
endingonfire 4th-Dec-2012 04:55 pm (UTC)
Queen Alice for sure!
iloveyou_change 4th-Dec-2012 01:34 am (UTC)
This is maybe stupid, but can somebody explain to me how these odds work? Like, what does 6/4 mean?
thishollywood 4th-Dec-2012 01:36 am (UTC)
Idk and Idk why they didn't make that 3/2

Sum1 teach me
ritzyroxie 4th-Dec-2012 01:36 am (UTC)
You carry the six, divide it by four and then bi cross the remainder.
hobnailedboots 4th-Dec-2012 01:39 am (UTC)
If your bet wins, you get (stake x odds) plus stake back.

So if the odds are 6/4 and you place a £1 bet, you get (1 x 6/4) + 1, so you get 1.5 + 1, or £2.50.

So if the odds are 2/1 you'd get two times your stake, plus the original stake, back (£3 for a £1 bet), and if they were 1/2 you'd get £1.50 back on a £1 bet, using the same reasoning.

/not a gambler, just an employee

thishollywood 4th-Dec-2012 01:42 am (UTC)
But 6/4 = 3/2

Why don't they use that
rylee900 4th-Dec-2012 11:37 am (UTC)
I still do not get this lmao
vehiclesshockme 4th-Dec-2012 01:34 am (UTC)
Diana or Spencer.
khlassique 4th-Dec-2012 01:41 am (UTC)
I think Spencer would be a good name for a girl, or at least a middle name.
juteux 4th-Dec-2012 01:46 am (UTC)
Oh I really like the idea of using Spencer somewhere for either gender.
myhipusername 4th-Dec-2012 02:25 am (UTC)
i love spencer for a girls name tbh
quinnthevixen 4th-Dec-2012 03:55 pm (UTC)
My sister is a Spencer; she would be so pleased to hear this
dagf 4th-Dec-2012 03:24 am (UTC)
Spencer for a girl, ftw!
