The Royals

Most Popular Baby Names for William & Kate

Now that the royal bundle has arrived, look back at the top monikers the public favored for the first-time parents

PHILIP

The public is pledging many pounds on the name of Will's grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh and Queen Elizabeth's husband. Born into Greek and Danish royalty, Prince Philip served in the British navy during World War II and became a British subject shortly before he and Elizabeth married in 1947. The often-outspoken 91-year-old has been ailing lately – having his great-grandchild named after him would be a fitting acknowledgment of what this patriarch means to the royal family.
