Three days after Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank welcomed their first child into the world, a baby boy, gambling sites are actively updating the predictions for what they'll name their son. At the moment, most people think the new parents will name the tot after Eugenie's grandfather, Prince Philip

"As we eagerly await the name of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's firstborn son to be revealed, there have been some changes in the betting market in the past day," Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom revealed. "Philip is still seeing a lot of love and has got even shorter at 10/3, with royal fans anticipating him being named after his great-grandfather."

However, Ladbrokes, another gambling page, lists the odds of them choosing Philip at just 12/1. In September, when Eugenie announced her pregnancy, the site favored Arthur and Frederick as the top monikers (5/1), followed by James (6/1), Edward (8/1) and Albert (8/1).

Since the gender of the baby was unknown at the time, plenty of names for a baby girl were presented as well, with the top choice being Victoria (5/1), followed by Grace (6/1). Naming a daughter after Queen Elizabeth II was also a top pick (10/1).

Though most of the monikers would honor another member of the royal family, it's possible for the couple to stray from tradition and pick something different, like Oliver, which Betfair has now set the odds for at 4/1.

Eugenie gave birth to the baby boy, who weighed 8 lbs. 1.oz., at the Portland Hospital in London on February 9, with an official announcement stating she and the little one were "both doing well." Later that day, the new mom shared a black-and-white Instagram, which showed her and her husband holding hands with their newborn.

The parents were spotted leaving the hospital on February 12, with the new dad at the wheel while Eugenie sat in the back next to the baby, who was strapped into a car seat. It's likely that the family of three were heading back to Frogmore Cottage, where they reportedly plan to raise their son.
