The Queen's granddaughter Zara Tindall, and her husband Mike, have named their new baby daughter Lena Elizabeth.

Though Zara is the daughter of Princess Anne, The Queen's only daughter, her father Captain Mark Phillips declined a royal peerage upon his marriage, and the princess famously refused Her Majesty's offer to extend the title of Princess to Zara.

The unusual first name had fans questioning just how to pronounce it: Lee-na or Lay-na?

The origins of the name are said to be Greek, with possible meanings including "illustrious", "temptress" and "the bright one". Not even two years ago, the equestrian shared the fact that she had suffered a miscarriage.

It has now been confirmed the name the pair have chosen is Lena Elizabeth Tindall.

The rep confirmed that the name doesn't hold a particular signficance, but was "just a name they liked".

Congrats to the happy couple on the wonderful new addition to the family. She will be 19th in line to the throne. Mr Tindall was present at the birth.

Tragically, Zara and Mike lost a baby in pregnancy in 2016.

"The weight of the baby was 9lbs 3oz".

This is the second royal baby born this year, following the arrival of Prince Louis in April. Most recently, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge waited just under a week to reveal that they had decided on Prince Louis for their third child.

Louis will be christened on July 9 at the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace in London.
