According to Mirror Online, an online sports betting company is now saying the odds are 3-1 that the baby's name will be Alice if a little princess is born.

That's after Ladbrokes, a different betting company, settled on the name Alexandra through a corgi race it held last week.

A baby name expert told Mashable: "The Duchess was said to favor the name Alexander for Prince George, and it's his second middle name, so Alexandra for a baby girl might be her top choice -- and for the 'spare,' especially a girl, Kate might be allowed to rule."

If you don't put much stock in the name chosen by a dog race, Ladbrokes does have Elizabeth as the hands-down favorite girl name at a 5-1 odds on its website.

The name Alice does seem like a possible contender, though.

It has a history of being used in the British royal family, despite not being used in a while. The last time it was chosen was when Queen Victoria named her second daughter Alice in 1843.

Hello! magazine reports that odds may be on the side of Elizabeth, though, since Kate announced she's giving birth around Queen Elizabeth's birthday, April 21.

The betting world also isn't ignoring that it could be a baby boy. Front-runners for names for Prince George's brother include Richard and James.

And if picking out baby names really isn't your thing, there's plenty more to bet on, including the baby's birth date and the color of the dress Kate will wear when she exits the hospital.
