The Meaning Behind The Royal Baby’s Surprisingly Popular Name Archie Harrison

Archie is the nickname for Archibald, a name that dates back to Middle Ages-era Scotland.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have named their first child Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Here's the significance behind that name.

Unlike his cousins, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis — the children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — Archie will not be a prince, and will likely be referred to as Master Archie as he grows up.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s choice in name marks a step away from royal tradition and symbolizes an effort by the royal family to become modern, says Cleveland Evans, a former president of the American Name Society and psychology professor at Bellevue University.
