According to a ton of bets placed with British bookmakers William Hill, the good people wagering hefty sums of moolah believe the name of the second royal baby will be Alice!
That's a pretty adorable name, if you ask us!
Neither Kate nor Prince William have announced the gender of their baby, but according to the people of William Hill, nearly three-quarters of gamblers think Kate is having a girl.

She has been wearing a lot of pink during this pregnancy — could it be a hint?!
Rupert Adams, a spokesperson for the bookmaker says:
"As it stands, over 70 percent of William Hill customers believe the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will have a baby girl, with Alice the current favorite name ahead of Elizabeth which is 9/2."
The other names in line are Charlotte at 11/2 and Victoria at 12/1, while the top-ranking boy name is Arthur at 20/1.
This has us wondering… where the heck did the name Alice come from and why did everyone start betting on it??
What are YOUR thoughts on the second royal baby's name and gender??
