Now that Will and Kate's third child has finally arrived, royal fans have just one question: What is the the baby's name?
Well, according to journalist Rebecca English, a reporter asked Prince William's aunt, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, that very question. She responded, "The jury’s out on that one. I don’t know, we’re all just going to have to wait and see."
She also reportedly added, "I’m thrilled for them all, it’s lovely - really good news."

As Victoria Arbiter told Town & Country earlier this month, it is tradition for royals to wait to share the names of their children publicly. "The reasoning is perhaps two fold. On one hand there's a desire to inform the families before a public declaration is made and any new parent appreciates having a little private time to get to know their new addition before the onslaught of announcements," she said.
"Royals, however, also have to consider the great responsibility in naming a new member of the family and I expect they want to be a hundred percent certain of their choice before announcing the name and sealing the baby's place in history."
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced Prince George and Princess Charlotte's names two days after they were born, so here's hoping we hear some news on that front Wednesday morning.
Kate and her newborn are reportedly in good health. They're starting to receive visitors, like Aunt Pippa, at Kensington Palace today.
