Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are ready to welcome their baby any time from now. This newest addition to the family has made people wonder, what will the Royalty name the child.
In fact, as soon as the announcement about the pregnancy was made, the name speculation has been doing the rounds. People are also wondering if it would be a boy or a girl. And so far the would-be parents have been totally silent about it, and have dropped no hints at all. This has added to the building the excitement.
In January, during a Royal appearance, Meghan Markle stated that she and Prince Harry decided not to find out what their baby’s sex is because they “want to keep it a surprise” according to Town & Country.
People across social media have come up with numerous suggestions, placing bets on potential baby boy or girl names. It is interesting to see how the names that people are suggesting have all deep historical roots with British royalty.
What will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle name the royal baby?
Let’s see some of the most interesting name suggestions made by people on social media.
If Prince Harry and Meghan's baby is a girl, I suggest her name be "Diana Henrietta Doria" after her two grandmothers and her father.
If a boy, "Philip Henry Charles" after his great grandfather, grandfather, and father.

Name Diana for a royal baby girl is one of the topmost trending names. Prince Harry was only twelve years old, when his mother Princess Diana passed away in 1997. It will be a very sweet if the royal baby is named after Prince Harry’s mother, thereby paying her homage and due respects.

Victoria is also the most suggested royal baby name by fans for the new borne, after the most iconic monarchs of Imperial Britain.

Frances is Princess Diana’s middle name, and stands perfect for paying subtle homage to Late Princess Diana.
