    I'm wondering if "Archie" is short for Archibald and a nod to British-born American actor, Cary Grant, whose real name was Archibald Alec Leach. Congratulations to the parents on the birth of their son - Archie Harrison.

    I bet this little fellow has red hair, just like Dad. He's going to be a real sparky little guy.

    I thought red hair always skips a generation or more unless both parents are redheads?

    I think if it were Archibald they would say so and add, to be known as Archie. So, I think its Archie and I love it!!

    I'm trying to let the name sink in. It's so different from anything I expected! But that seems fitting for this beautiful young family. Welcome to the world Archie!

    No, it takes each parent having a recessive gene for red hair. I believe Meghans father and half brother have reddish brown hair, so she probably has the recessive gene as does Harry of course.

    If it skips a generation, its due to lack of recessive genes in both parents.

    I always figured that Meghan and Harry would opt for a non-traditional "royal" moniker for their baby, and Archie Harrison is definitely not traditional :D Good for them! Wonder if the little guy will get a distinctive title...

    The picture of the Duke of E., the Queen, Doria and the parents with Archie is a wonderful picture.

    The Queen truly looks smitten.

    different did anyone even wildly guess Archie:) Was also wondering if it’s shortened form something else but why wouldn’t they mention it. Haven’t watched the vid yet looking forward to it though :)

    But...Hell Yeah! we got our Star Wars name in ;)

    & Lastly (4 now lol)

    Shoot the photographer if that's the best shot he got including Doria :mad: Where's Kate with her camera??

    Oh yes is it unusual for dad to be holding the baby during these royal announcements ? (Dd and I were discussing ). I’m thrilled for them btw :D

    No title for Master Archie Harrison (means Harrys' son) Mountbatten-Windsor.

    Good, he can live a relatively normal life if he wishes.

    Would the baby have already been given a formal title, or can that be done later?
