Meghan Markle might want to think opt for an unusual or Hollywood style name for her first child with Prince Harry.
Now a royal expert claims The Queen's opinion will be extremely important, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will likely have to have an "informal conversation" with Her Majesty.
While it will be up to The Queen to decide whether Harry and Meghan's child gets given a royal title, it's believed she will be a bit more relaxed when it comes to the first name but the couple will still take her thoughts into account.

The Queen has the power to say what their title is," Royal commentator Kate Williams told CNN. "But in the case of names, it is more of an informal conversation.
Of course they have such respect for the Queen that if she says 'I really don't like that name,' they'd definitely take that into account."
If the new arrival does turn out to be a boy, bookies are slating their favourites as Arthur being the name of choice with odds of 12/1.
Edward and James are also a popular choice with odds of 16/1.
