Zara Tindall baby name: Why she hasn't announced her daughter's name

Zara Tindall baby name: Why she hasn't announced her daughter's name

The baby, who was born June 18, is the second child of Zara and Mike Tindall, a former English rugby player. "It was just a name they liked".

According to the site Baby Name Wizard, Lena is often used as an abbreviation for the name Elena but can also be used as a name on its own.

Of course, she is great-grandmother to Zara and Mike's new baby - and so the pair are likely going to want to inform her and the rest of the royals of the baby's name before telling the world.

Lena is now nineteenth in line for the throne!

Congratulations on the new addition to the family Zara and Mark!

Buckingham Palace announced the arrival of Lena last week and confirmed she was born at the Stroud Maternity Unity, weighing 4.2 kilograms.

She is not an HRH, does not have a title and will be simply Miss Tindall. Mr Tindall was present at the birth.

The royals have already welcomed several new members this year: Before Lena, Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed third child Prince Louis, and Meghan Markle married into the family upon her May 19 nuptials with Prince Harry.

The couple, who are also parents to three-year-old Mia, have understandably been keeping a low profile at their Gatcombe Park home - and have not yet shared any more news regarding their baby girl.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to turn once again to close friends and confidantes when selecting godparents for their youngest child Prince Louis.

Royal baby names are, understandably, not made public until Queen Elizabeth II has been informed herself.

Those chosen for the spiritual role will be announced on the morning of Louis' baptism, which is taking place at the Chapel Royal on July 9.
