Today, Prince William joined his brother, Prince Harry, and soon-to-be sister-in-law, Meghan Markle, at an Anzac Day service at Westminster Abbey. Just two days ago the Duke of Cambridge and his wife, Kate Middleton, welcomed a new royal baby into the world—and now that very same world is patiently-ish waiting to hear what that new baby will be called.

William, however, was not willing to give any real hints about when the name will be released or what it is. According to a royal reporter, he teased "Alexander," which is Prince George's middle name, and "Jerry," which is one half of delicious ice cream brand Ben & Jerry's, the name of the mouse that torments Tom, and many other humans on the planet, none of whom are ancestors of the royal family.

The new-again dad also reported that Kate and the baby are "very well" and that they're "in good form, luckily." "Sleeping's going reasonably well so far, so he's behaving himself, which is good news," he said, according to the Daily Mail.

If the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge follow the same protocol they did for Prince George and Princess Charlotte, they'll announce the new baby's name today, two days after his birth. Since Kate Middleton announced she was pregnant, bets have been made about what the name will be: currently, Arthur is the favorite, with two different betting companies, according to The Huffington Post. Also leading contenders: James, Albert, Frederick, Philip.
