After the birth of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan’s son, there is widespread speculation about what he will be called. It is expected to be a few days before the couple reveals the name for their first child.

Britain’s legal bookmakers reported high interest in the names Alexander, James and Arthur. Bookmakers also report speculation about the name Spencer, the maiden name of Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana.

Others believe Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, will choose a name that reflects her American heritage.

The infant, known only as Baby Sussex for the moment, was born early Monday morning. The royal couple has not said if he was born at home or at a hospital.
