So What Baby Name Will Zara Phillips Choose?

Section: Girls baby names

After the arrival of Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall’s baby daughter on Friday, speculation is rife as to what the newest royal baby will be named

Kate and Wills may have taken the traditional route with their son’s name (well, he is third in line to the throne) but it’s yet to be revealed what Zara will call her baby girl.

The name Poppy is the bookie’s top choice at the moment, with William Hill naming the odds as 8/1. As one of the top girls’ names of last year it’s thought to be Zara’s favourite after she was heard talking about it at a rugby match in November.

Other favourites for baby Phillips-Tindall’s name include Charlotte (4/1), Victoria (6/1) and Anne (7/1). Or if the new parents are really stuck, they could use our baby name generator to get some inspiration. Just saying.

Zara’s baby was delivered safely in the early hours of Friday morning in what was thought to be a low-key delivery at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. Another mum on the royal princess’ ward said that Zara’s arrival was kept quiet and it seemed as though Princess Anne’s daughter received no special treatment – despite her royal status.

Just hours after the baby’s birth, Zara’s husband Mike Tindall tweeted,

The couple and their new charge are thought to have gone back home to their Gatcombe estate yesterday, to enjoy their first day few days together. As well as plenty of mummy-baby bonding time, we wonder if Zara will enter that new mum time zone and rely on hourly rounds of toast and tea.

How did you spend those first few days with your baby? Let us know below.
