The Surprising Reason Princess Eugenie Might Actually Name Her Newborn Son Stamp

It’s been over a week since we learned that Princess Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, officially welcomed their first child together.

On Monday, February 8, the royal family announced that the 30-year-old mother gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Since then, the couple has remained mum on any further details, including their son’s name. However, that doesn’t mean the internet and royal fans everywhere aren’t making their own predictions about what name the Princess of York and her hubby will bestow on their firstborn.

In fact, one royal theory has a strong hunch that the couple will give the baby a very unique middle name—Stamp—which been passed down in Brooksbank’s family for generations. According to Just Jared, the decision would be in honor of the new father’s great-great-great-great-grandfather. Stamp Brooksbank. Not to mention, Jack also shares the middle name. 

Unfortunately, the jury is still out on the first name. We reported back in November that according to BetVictor, Arthur and Henry were the top name predictions if the child turned out to be a boy. James and Philip are also among favorites online. 

In addition to the gender and possible middle name, we are certain of one other thing regarding the newborn: He most likely won’t receive an official title. While the baby’s mother has HRH (Her Royal Highness) status, the baby boy will not necessarily receive the status or a title, despite being 11th in line to the throne. Why? Because titles are inherited from the father’s side and Brooksbank does not have a title to pass down. 

*Insert first name here* Stamp Brooksbank sounds like a great name to us.
