I'm not a fan of nicknames given as full names, but if Meghan and Harry are happy with it, that's all that matters.

The Wessex children uses Mountbatten-Windsor surname as well. He is the Earl of Dumbarton according to customs of the UK peerage.

I hate the name, to be honest. I always felt like they would go for a more modern name, something that wasn't used in the family before and I was right, but Archie feels like a nickname.

I like Archie - sweet name & it was a front runner for one of my grandchildren. I don't know if Harrison has any significance for them other than Harry's Son?

But I just want to remind her that the first one is God's trick for you to have more. So that might be why.
Did you catch the comment from Harry about wonder where he gets the calm temperament from? LOL we know it's not Harry!

That's ... different. Can't say i like it or not (and if the parents are happy with it who am i to judge).
I just note the huge difference with the way more regal and traditional names from the Cambridges side.
The Sussexes are definively making their own way. A good thing, i guess ...

Same, but give how P.Harry practically uses a nickname in his everyday life, it is no surprise they opted for something like that. And sure, always better than Archibald

I did! It's funny because if not for Tom Bradby, we actually wouldn't have known that reference.

No HRH for Archie, and no title either. Really bold move one which I thought Henry and Meghan would do.
The name is really different, and I like it. Very “normal”.

Wonder if he's called Archie and his full name is Archibald or is it plain Archie?

Totally unique name for a totally unique child. I do have to admit that my first reaction was asking myself the question "now if they have a girl, will they name her Veronica?".

I wondered at first where they got Harrison from, but BBC say it means "son of Harry". I just find that hilarious.

I am not surprised with no title. It is what I was expecting. It is very them.

None of them have the title. It's a way they are addressed. I suppose the baby will be Archie Harrison until the time comes for him to inherit Duke of Sussex title.

Perhaps the next one might be called Meghson or Meghdaughter!

Wait, do people actually know where Archie came from? I would've thought that'd be the bigger question.

Don't like the name but it's their child.

it's a big difference from three-part traditional Cambridge names.

I'm unsurprised by the decision to not use a title, if that is indeed true, since I think the Sussexes have been very consistent in signaling their determination to do things their own way, and in a way that they have deemed best for them and their family. The no-title decision seems to be very much in keeping with that.
