Multiple Grammy winner, Adele, has been lying low these past months, no doubt
nesting ahead of the birth of her first child.
However, activity picked up at leading UK sports betting sites this week
after the reclusive singer stepped out with her fiancé, reminding punters that
she is just weeks away from giving birth.
As such, players have been betting on Adele baby name odds offered by
sites such as the Irish bookie, Paddy Power on the possible name that Adele and
Simon Konecki will give their firstborn.
Bookies missed out on the first six months of the singer's pregnancy, as she
only announced that she was due more than halfway through. However, now these
sites are making up for lost time by offering great odds, and Adele baby name
betting is one of the more popular choices for players looking for novelty bets.
12/1 Odds on Penny as Adele's Baby Name
Penny remains the firm favourite as a girl's name for the new baby, with odds
of 12/1 that the child will carry Adele's mum's name.
Paddy Power seems to think that Adele and Konecki may also consider Blue as a
name at 16/1 odds but the fact that fellow singer, Beyonce named her daughter
that may put pay to that idea.
If the baby is a boy (Adele still hasn't announced the sex of her child),
odds are an equal 18/1 that it will be named Bob or Dylan.
Paddy Power then supplies a particularly long list of names, ranging from the
more common James (20/1) to a money-losing Moneypenny (!) at odds of 475/1.
