  • Doobie, doobie, do, de, du

  • - Hi, we're Joel and Lia.

  • - And welcome back to the Baby Sussex miniseries.

  • In this episode we're talking about baby names.

  • - Yes.

  • - One of my favorite subjects.

  • - I know, this is probably,

  • actually I think this is probably

  • what I'm most interested in.

  • - Yeah, I know, same.

  • Modern day parenting, have you heard of like

  • Tinder, like the app you can swipe for baby names.

  • - Oh really?

  • - And when it's a match you and your partner

  • both get a notification.

  • - That is such a good idea.

  • - Yeah, so it's like, you know,

  • for anyone who doesn't know what Tinder is,

  • it's like a dating app, you swipe,

  • yeah, same thing for.

  • - You swipe left for no and--

  • - [Together Right for Yes.

  • - So they do that with baby names.

  • - Baby names, so if you and I were to have a baby.

  • - Yes.

  • - We'd be--

  • - Baby Joel, baby Jia.

  • - Baby Jia, we'd swiping Alice, Mary, dah, dah, dah,

  • and we're like oh, match it's a match on Sara,

  • we both agree on Sara.

  • - Yeah.

  • - 'Cause we've obviously both got jobs,

  • we're modern parents, we're working.

  • - Yeah.

  • - And we're just swiping baby names all day.

  • Isn't that amazing?

  • - Ah, so you don't talk to each other,

  • you just do it on your phone.

  • (laughing)

  • Great.

  • - Great!

  • - So obviously there are certain few names

  • that are sort of royal names

  • and they're kind of expected to pick

  • at least on of those for a middle name, at least,

  • if not of the first name.

  • - Do we think these names will have been

  • suggested by The Queen, her people.

  • - By her people.

  • - Yeah.

  • - 'Cause I think The Queen really doesn't,

  • it's the advisors, isn't it.

  • - Yes.

  • - That control it and go.

  • - Yeah, the royal advisors that are going

  • here are the name you might want to consider.

  • - Yeah. - So.

  • - Which are things like Alice--

  • - [Together] Mary.

  • - Charlotte,

  • which obviously won't be Charlotte.

  • - We'll not be having Charlotte.

  • - No.

  • - We've already got one.

  • - Elisabeth, obviously, things like that.

  • And for boys it's like Frederick, James--

  • - James.

  • - Edward.

  • - Edward.

  • - Like those sorts of names.

  • - Of course it will.

  • And I think we will see that, like you say,

  • in a middle name, at least.

  • - Yeah.

  • - But will the royal baby,

  • will Baby Sussex be named

  • something maybe a bit more American.

  • - Maybe, that would be a nice touch.

  • I mean--

  • - Yeah.

  • - Some American names aren't that different to the U.K.

  • but then others are.

  • - Oh yeah, some of them have really just.

  • - Yeah.

  • - Imagine if it was a

  • Brittany.

  • - Brittany--

  • - Imagine.

  • - That'd be so funny.

  • - That our royal Baby Sussex, Brittany.

  • - Baby Brittany.

  • No, I hope it's not Brittany.

  • - Brittany, Brittany Mary, I was about to say Markle.

  • - Brittany Mary Windsor.

  • - Windsor.

  • - Wow.

  • - No, it can't be.

  • - No, I don't know, literally,

  • there's no way of to tell this

  • but people can predict the baby gender, obviously

  • 'cause it's 50% chance of either.

  • - Yeah.

  • - But what's it gonna be.

  • - Harry Junior.

  • - Her name?

  • - Harry Junior, if it's a boy.

  • - Or Harriet.

  • - Harriet!

  • - No, it won't be Harriet,

  • that's too narcissistic.

  • - Yeah, that's hilarious.

  • - That's really funny.

  • - Harry and Harriet.

  • - I'm hoping for Joel if it's a boy.

  • I think that's a cool name.

  • - Do you think it would make it?

  • - It could if they, you know.

  • - If (sighing).

  • - We're cool.

  • - If they were cool, yeah.

  • - Yeah.

  • - So betting shops in the U.K. have got a high probability

  • of the baby being called Diana.

  • - Yeah.

  • - In respects of Harry's mom.

  • Other names that are also quite high up on the list are

  • Victory, Grace, which is 12 to one.

  • - Yeah.

  • - So a little bit more quirky.

  • - Alice, Isabelle, Isabella--

  • - Isabella.

  • - And Elisabeth.

  • - Oh, how nice would Isabella be,

  • do you like that name?

  • - Mm, I don't dislike it, I really like Grace.

  • I think it should be called Grace.

  • - Yeah.

  • - If it's a girl.

  • - And I think Grace is also a little bit Americany

  • - Yeah, and it's a little bit cool

  • and new agey.

  • - Yeah.

  • - But it's also still quite traditional at the same time.

  • - Exactly, just like that priest

  • that Meghan got for the wedding.

  • - Oh he was something else.

  • - Graceful. (laughing)

  • - Graceful.

  • - Graceful.

  • - What is it, so for boys,

  • the top choice is Arthur and then James

  • would be at 16 to one.

  • - Nothing new there.

  • - No.

  • - Harriet.

  • - And Harriet.

  • Harriet is on there.

  • - Harriet is on the list, if you bet one pound

  • and the name is Harriet, you get 20 pounds back.

  • - Wow.

  • - So, that's great.

  • - Harriet.

  • - Bets on Harriet, guys. (laughing)

  • - That is so good, it's not gonna be Harriet.

  • - I know.

  • - It's like me naming my daughter Joelette.

  • - Joelette.

  • - Joelette. - Juliette.

  • - Juliette, who knows, I think Grace if it's a girl,

  • it's gonna be Grace.

  • If it's a boy, it will be James.

  • I guess.

  • - Okay, nice.

  • - What do you think?

  • - Isabella I think is quite high.

  • - Yeah.

  • - I don't know, it's just gravitate,

  • I'm gravitating towards it.

  • - Yeah.

  • - And Arthur.

  • - Yeah, oh Arthur's nice.

  • - Arthur for a boy.

  • - Hey, Arthur.

  • - Hey, Arthur.

  • Okay. (laughing)

  • That was just a show when were were kids.

  • - Let us know in the comments

  • what name you think the baby will called

  • and if you think it'll be a boy or a girl.

  • And go and watch the other videos as well.

  • - We've made just a couple of videos around Baby Sussex

  • and they're all on the playlist here on YouTube.

  • Go check them and we'll see you soon!

  • - See you soon, guys.

  • - [Together] Bye!
