Kate Baby: The Betting!

Paddy power offer odds on baby names

Paddy Power bookmakers of Ireland were first out of the blocks with prices on royal baby outcomes today.

They have made Mary, Victoria and John the joint 8/1 favourite baby names following the announcement that Kate Middleton is pregnant.

Next in the running is Diana and Frances at 9/1 with Philip, Anne and Charles all available at 10/1. The current longshots include 80/1 Chelsy, 100/1 Bradley and 250/1 Fergie.

Elsewhere, Paddy Power make it an unlikely 6/1 that the child will have ginger hair, with brown the current 13/8 favourite.

Weight wise, the 5/2 favourite is for the new arrival to be born between 7lbs and 7lbs 15oz, while Pippa and Prince Harry are leading the charge to be named godparents ahead of 25/1 David Beckham and 100/1 Victoria Beckham.

A spokesperson for Paddy Power said “There’s very little to choose from between the top ten or so names in the betting. The nation will wait with bated breath on the blighters name - but I’d imagine some of our punters will be paying closer attention than most”
