Zara and Mike Tindall's new baby's name has been announced — Lena (pronounced Lay-na) Elizabeth.

The couple's second child was born June 18, weighing 9 pounds, 3 ounces, making her the Queen's seventh great-grandchild and 19th in line for the throne.

According to BBC, she was named in honor of Queen Elizabeth, but the couple chose Lena as her first name because they liked the way it sounded.

A spokesperson for the couple noted that the name does not hold any particular significance, Hello Magazine reported, however Baby Center noted that the name has Greek origins and means "light."

Lena Elizabeth Tindall has a 4-year-old sister, Mia Grace Tindall. She is also the second cousin to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, BBC said.

Zara Tindall and her former England rugby player husband, Mike, suffered a miscarriage in 2016, just weeks after announcing their pregnancy, The Mirror reported.

Mike Tindall was one of England's best rugby players and helped lead the country to the 2003 Rugby World Cup, beating out Australia. The competition was where the couple met.

Zara Tindall meanwhile has become one of the country's best equestrian riders and helped lead team Britain to the silver medal, behind Germany, in the 2012 London Olympics in the equestrian event. She also advanced to the finals in the individual show jumping competition.

Zara Tindall does not hold a royal title after her mother decided not to pass her status to her children. As such, Lena Elizabeth Tindall will be known as Miss Tindall, BBC said.
