If you happen to get money back on your taxes this year, why not double down on your windfall with a bet on a name?

If you believe the bookmakers, Alexandra will be the name given to the child of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge. After receiving an influx of bets, British betting firms are slashing odds to 2-1 from 25-1 that Alexandra will be the chosen name for the royal baby.
