The no-title decision seems to be very much in keeping with that.
I'm sure the decision was met with approval by both the Queen and The Prince of Wales. I had a feeling that this is what was going to happen. Now we know.

I, too, was not expecting the Sussex children to have titles. Very sensible to follow the path laid out by the Earl and Countess of Wessex.

I have mixed feelings about nicknames like this. It's cute when they are little. But what happens when they grow up and have to be in the grown up world? Although, Archibald isn't all that, so...

Except that they've gone one step further. This child won't have any title at all. Presumably a future daughter won't be a Lady either.

Wherever they got it from, it was the 15th most popular (& rising) boy's name in the UK last year.

Cold have been worse. He could have been called Atticus Prentice Harrison M-W.

I think that's just the way they are addressed though, right? Viscount Severn doesn't actually have the title of Viscount Severn, that's his father's subsidiary title. He's addressed that way, but it's still Edward's.

Oh. Maybe that's why. I thought it was an out of nowhere name, but maybe that's just because it's uncommon in US. Glad to see there will be a lot of Archies when this baby goes to school.

Not fussed on the name, at all, or the lack of title use.

Isn’t Archie the nickname (code name) Prince George used when introducing himself to other kids at a play date recently? I believe they were on a private play date at a public park.

Archie is a very English name, actually it's been quite popular in England for some time. A relative's son is an Archie and he's six. And Harrison is a clever pun! I was hoping for Alexander, but I'm sure Archie will grow on me.
I'm old enough to remember the shock when Charles/Diana stated that their new baby would be known as Harry and some people were quite sniffy about it. Now, no-one thinks of him as Henry.

I'll be honest, I'm not a big fan.

I'm not fond of nicknames as full names as it is, and Archie feels like one of those names that every kid born in the last 5 years has, like how every other kid is called Jack. It's one of those names where you feel as though the parents went "it'll be so cute on a baby and a sweet old grandad!!" but didn't picture him as a 16 year old goth or a 45 year old businessman. (This is not directed at M&H specifically, just these sorts of names in general)

I dislike Harrison in general and I don't think the two names flow that well together.

But of course it's not up to me, and if the parents like it then there we go. I am disappointed that my psychic royal baby naming powers failed me this time. Before Oscar was named I had Oscar flash into my head randomly and the same with Josephine before Adrienne was named (middle name), and earlier Stephen came to mind, but no! Perhaps it only works with Swedes.

It's very common now in the UK. It seems like every other baby boy here is called either Archie, Alfie or Charlie.

I never saw the point in that. It's weird to me. There's this Youtube/Insta famous couple that named their daughter Genevieve, but will call her Gigi for the rest of her life and I'm just confused as to why you'd give your kid one name, to name her an entirely different one.

But that's an irrelevant discussion.

I think of Harry as Henry, sometimes,

Archie? You mean Archibald? Is it official?

I guess UK is very big on nicknames now? But man, poor kids when they grow up.
