What will Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds call their son? Latest baby name odds revealed

What will Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds call their son? Latest baby name odds revealed

The birth of the baby boy was announced this morning.

Bookmakers have released odds on what Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds will name their newborn boy, with Wilfred currently favourite.

Deriving from Germanic roots, Wilfred means ‘he who wants peace’ and has been cut from 14/1 into 2/1 clear favourite in the market.

Wilfred has been the most popular punt in the market, attracting 23% of all bets since the news was announced this morning.

That means it’s just ahead of the second favourite name, George, which is currently 8/1, alongside Thomas (8/1).

A name synonymous in the Royal Family, Arthur is 10/1 to be chosen for the Prime Minister’s most recent child.

Oliver and Winston are both the same price at 12/1, followed by Charlie, Jack and David which are all 16/1.

If you fancy Boris to opt for a more continental twist, Sebastian is 25/1 followed by Horatio (33/1).

Perhaps inspired by the chancellor, Rishi is 100/1, followed by Vladimir (250/1) and Brexit (500/1).

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Boris Johnson's sleepless nights have just got longer, as the PM's newborn son is about to become Number 10's latest resident.

“Though Wilfred is the bookies' favourite in this interesting market, there are still some questions regarding whether BoJo will elect for a more modern name for his youngster.”
