Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge, Will Name Her Baby Philip If Boy, Source Says

It may be time to stop guessing at baby names — it turns out Kate Middleton and Prince William will name their child Philip if it's a boy.

Sources say the royal couple have already come up with a shortlist of possibilities, including the name of Will's grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, according to the Daily Star.

“The name Philip is in the frame for a boy. It will certainly have it somewhere in his name," a source told the Daily Star, adding if it were a boy, Prince William would make the final decision for choosing a name.

Earlier reports suggested other possible names include Elizabeth if it's a girl, along with Diana and Carole as middle names to honour both Will and Kate's mothers, according to Hollywood Life.

“We have a shortlist for both (a boy and girl), but it’s very difficult. My friends keep texting me names,” she said during a visit to Scotland last week.

With only a few months left in her pregnancy (Kate revealed her due date is around mid-July), Kate may have yet another thing to worry about.

Another report says Prince William also wants to film the birth — something Kate's not so fond of.

Is Philip the right choice for a boy's name? Let us know in the comments below:
