What People Are Saying About Baby Archie's Name

When asked to describe her baby boy to the world, she said "he has the sweetest temperament".

"I wonder who he gets that from". The parents' happiness was apparent, as Harry -with a huge smile on his face- held the sleeping baby while Meghan lovingly looked on.

It is believed only three people had picked the name Archie, with bookmakers having it at 100-1.

"Happy they chose Archie HARRISON Mountbatten-Windsor, but regret not being more specific".

Buckingham Palace told CNN on Wednesday that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had chosen not to use any title at all for their son, even though Archie will have the right to use his father's second peerage title, Earl of Dumbarton. Bets had been placed on more traditional royal names like Arthur, Alexander, Albert, James, Alfred, Philip, Thomas and Spencer, according to Ladbrokes, a United Kingdom betting company.

The name Archie, said to mean "brave" and "bold", is a popular choice for boys' names in the U.K. It ranked around 20th in popularity in 2015, according to data from the U.K. Office for National Statistics.

The royal couple, whose visit has so far stopped them from meeting the Prince of Wales' newest grandson Archie, had the drink in traditional litre glasses.

"A mouthful for him", Elizabeth Barker, an Irish tourist, said laughing.

"It'll be a personal or parental decision (depending on when that happens) but if he's has gone years without a title, I don't think he'll start to use one later on". "You know, nobody has to like it".

Their Royal Highnesses' son weighed 7lbs. 3oz.

On Wednesday, Harry and Meghan showed off their baby at Windsor Castle.

The baby was sleeping soundly, wrapped in a white blanket and wearing a delicate white knitted hat. We can only imagine how proud Diana must be of both her sons.

Paddy Power's odds on Archie's godparents include George and Amal Clooney at 6/1, David and Victoria Beckham at 12/1, Sir Elton John and Oprah Winfrey each at 25/1, and Meghan's close friend Jessica Mulroney as the clear favourite at 1/14.
