Im Danish and dont know anything about this Archie name but it sounds like a cute pet /nick name to me....  Thinking

I had hoped Philip would have been used somewhere in the name.

I didnt even get the son of harry ... my husband did!  I just thought of Harrison Ford  Beer

From Twitter:

"No formal royal title is perfectly in keeping with the couple's clear desire to give their son as normal an upbringing as possible."

Uh huh, yes, exactly in keeping with their desire for a normal upbringing. Sure.  Roll Eyes

I mean Anne did it, too, but again, this just smacks of the mother not understanding the concept of royalty.

I like the name. For a Kennedy.

Not for a Royal

Archibald was the name of Theodore Roosevelt's third son. It was a old family name on his mother's side. Of course everyone in the family called him Archie but at least it was a nickname and not the actual name. Hopefully on the birth certificate it's Archibald.

I doubt it.  If that were the case they would have said Archibald Harrison but he will be known as Archie to the family.  Just like when Harry's full name was announced (Henry Charles Albert David) they said he would be known as Harry to the family.

Yeah, his name is 100% Archie and not Archibald. Shame, I'd have liked Archibald better. Well, I would have liked any other name better, lol.

Well Archibald wouldn't be great if he ended up Windsor bald. But i like the name overall

Arthur with Archie as a nickname would work too

But alas Archie Comic Sans

I called it a long time ago that they wouldn't use 'royal' names. They sure didn't!!

His name is Archie, not Archibald, is what I read.

After Savannah and Zara Elizabeth is used to disappointments. I just think for baby Archie's sake - so far they are leading an upper class English life. The kids great-granny is the Queen. Is it too much to ask for to either call the kid Archibald and call him "Archie" or to give him one "normal" English upper class name.

We all hope that he reaches the age of great-granddad Philipp, but honestly, at that age Archie will sound a bit weird -cool name for a toddler. Archie is the neighbour helping you out. But after that ... And Harrison, son of Harry? If they ever have a girl, we can expect something in the Estelle line, or a Lizzie :-).

I do think it's possible that they just liked the name Harrison and the "Harry's son" is just a coincidence. I've heard it before for American boys with parents in Harry and Meghan's age/group (ie upper middle class Americans, which is where I think Meghan fell pre-marriage). Regardless, I still think Archie Harrison is an atrocious name.

I remember reading  many years ago that it was Charles who suggested the name Zara to the then pregnant Princess Anne. So he's at fault for putting us on the slippery slope of names...
