DON'T BET ON ANDREW, SAYS ALEX.
The First Minister says the name would be fitting, since the prince's parents met at St Andrews University.
But despite enjoying a flutter, Salmond says he wouldn't bet on the boy being named for Scotland's patron saint.
He told the BBC's Good Morning Scotland: "I just wonder if Andrew would be a good bet, just given that they met in St Andrews.
"But this is one race I most certainly won't be betting on.
"I just want, like everyone else, to wish the happy couple congratulations on the birth of their first child - and I think we should leave the naming to them actually."
