The second most popular boys' name related to the royal family is Lucas, just like Zara Tindall's baby boy. In third place for royal baby boy names is Jack, like Jack Brooksbank, husband to Princess Eugenie and father to their first child, August.

Prince William and Duchess Kate's son Prince Louis sees his name bag fourth spot, followed by the moniker of his big brother Prince George.
