The betting odds for royal baby names just got a little more exciting.

Since the announcement of Kate Middleton's pregnancy in December, royal bookies began to place bets on the gender and name of the future prince or princess, and even as we get down to the final days, the odds continue to change.

According to the National Post, Alexandra was the solid favorite for a girl at the betting houses, along with James or George for a boy, which is not something new.

However, there were a few interesting names thrown into the mix.

Along with the usual monikers that have been thrown around—Diana, Elizabeth, Alice, Mary, Charles and Philip—the betting houses also listed Adam and Eve, Basil and even Barack and Elvis!

But before you get excited and put down some moolah on the latter choices, you should probably know that the chance of Prince William and Kate naming their royal child Barack or Elvis are slim to none.

According to the report, Barack was at 200-1 while the King of Rock n' Roll was pegged as a 500-1 long shot.

As of earlier this week, royal bookies narrowed down their top picks of royal baby names to Alexandra, Charlotte, Elizabeth, George, James, Victoria, Diana, Isabella, Alice, Mary, Eleanor, Grace, Phillip, Alexander, Anne, Catherine/Kate, Charles, Frances, Louis, Alfred and Arthur.

"Nobody knows what William and Kate are calling their baby or even if they have decided on a name," a royal source previously told E! News. "They are being very careful to keep everything to themselves. The duke and duchess are taking their privacy very seriously. They are not speaking to anyone about these private matters."

No pressure, but a lot of newborns' names are riding on this.
