Meghan Markle and Prince Harry haven't been shy about what baby girl names they like.

In 2019, the couple — who were expecting Archie — heard moniker suggestions from school children.

"I asked her whether she would call her baby Amy if she has a girl, and she said, 'That's a really pretty name, I like it. We'll have to think about it,'" Megan Dudley told reporters at the time.

At the same time, Harry also seemed to like the name "Lily," as he asked a mother how she spelled her daughter's name.

In 2018, while in Australia, the pair met a fan with a baby named Harriet — she later revealed that Harry said it was "a great name."

The duo will soon welcome their baby girl into their lives, and after Prince Philip died on April 9 at 99 years old, many fans thought they would name the new tot after Harry's grandfather.

"The support for baby Philippa is showing no signs of slowing down, and we've been forced to trim the odds again that it's the name for Harry and Meghan's daughter," Jessica O'Reilly, who works for Ladbrokes, said. 

Some bookies think the pair — who relocated to California in 2020 — will name their tot after Harry's late motherPrincess Diana, or his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. (Diana and Elizabeth are near the top of the leaderboard at 5/1 and 10/1, respectively.)

"I absolutely think that they will want to include Diana as perhaps one of the names for their little girl," royal expert Katie Nicholl shared. "Maybe not in her first name, but I am sure it's very high up on the list in terms of a second Christian name, and I think that is quite simply because it would be [a way] for Harry to pay tribute to his mother. Of course, the Cambridges gave Charlotte Diana as a middle name, I don't think that precludes Harry and Meghan from doing that type of same thing. I think it's very likely to be chosen as a middle name."

Allegra (10/1), Alexandria (12/1), Grace (16/1), Emma (16/1), Rose (16/1), Alice (16/1) and Victoria (16/1) are also other options.
