The world is flipping out over the new royal baby boy, with gutsy bettors still gambling on the future heir's name.

The Irish betting site Paddy Power gave out 500:1 odds on Fergie. The risk, it seems, did not pay off for Team Fergie.

But you can also bet on the prince's first word, university, career, first overseas visit, and even the age at which the young royal is first photographed at a nightclub.
