Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced the birth of their first baby on Monday, a healthy 7 pound 3oz baby boy, and people have started to guess what he's going to be called.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have yet to make the name of their first-born son public, however, a royal expert has weighed in to suggest that the name could be 'unusual'.
Speaking to CBS, royal expert Victoria Arbiter said:
I think there are a lot of names here that work with the British royal family tree but also have strong roots here in the U.S.
The Daily Express also got involved, saying:
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to choose UNUSUAL name for baby that UNIFIES the US and UK
So, an unusual name that will unite the United Kingdom and the United States? Well, it goes without saying that people online wanted to get involved with guessing what exactly this name could be.
