I just donít like the name but Iím sure everyone will be used to it eventually! Quite surprised they have gone no title at all. I assumed they would be Lord or Lady, especially as eventually their children will be grandchildren of the King.

No, Archie. Apparently Archie is a popular name in UK. I wonder if the press will print Archie Harrison for awhile like they did with Margaret Rose. I actually like the two together. Harrison is a more formal name to balance it out.

I was a little worried on how it'll sound if they are ever mad at him. Archie! still sounds like he's cute. Archie Harrison! now he'll know he's in trouble.

It's official...Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. NOT Archibald.

Not a fan of the name at all, actually I am in shock. I was never a fan of the name George either but I understood the significance within the royal family but Archie?? Seriously, makes me think of Veronica & Jughead. IMHO- its a terrible name, hopefully it will grow on me

Naming trends are a funny thing. It's like "Emily" was in the US years ago. After not knowing a single Emily for my entire life, all of a sudden every classroom had an Emily T. and an Emily S. and and Emily C., etc. (first name plus last name initial) because that was the only way to keep the little girls straight.

Aside from not caring much for "Archie" I don't think it really flows well with Harrison. Oh well.

Isn’t Archie supposed to be a nickname rather than a full name ? i Odd choice .

Sensible to say that he will not be styled by his curtsey title. Of course the HRH is automatic when Charles takes the throne, but going with the lower key approach makes sense for them and how they want to raise their child.

There are plenty of adult males here using nicknames/shortened names eg Harry, Charlie, Will, Matt, Joe, Tom etc. By the time Archie M-W is a man, there'll be loads of them!

Maybe the parents are Archie comics fans.

Oh, okay if it is not unusual in the UK. Because it is not common in the US. It would be a nickname for something else. I'll be honest, after first saying it's not my baby, it's not my business, etc.

I don't like the name for a new baby. But if the parents do, that's what matters. And I don't think I have ever seen the Queen and Duke smiling so broadly before. It's good to see.

Edit: I do think it would have been nice to have a family name in there, especially Phillip. Are they so determined to break away from the Royal family? Prince Archie? Or Archie, Earl of Whatever?

I thought it was a joke, but apparently not. A normal name perhaps for a child of London hipster parents, but for a member of the British RF it is an unusual choice. But after all the Noah, Liam, Luana, Zaria, Leah etc. in other RF's it was bound to happen at one point. Let's hope that Archie is at least short for Archibald. We will get used to it soon enough.

A wonderful photo of the Queen and the DoE admiring their new great-grandson. The DoE looks very well. A pity that the photo was in black & white.

Come sit with me. I think it's an awful name for a Royal princeling. I didn't like "Harry" either but Harry's charismatic and charming personality overcame his unfortunate name.

I hope it will be the same with...errmm Archie.

Not getting too far ahead but given the announcement today I'm wagering Archie will never be an HRH. I think the couple will see to that

I'm wondering about that, too. As I said earlier, the Sussexes have been very consistent, and avoiding an HRH, (wouldn't new LP's take care of that?) would be completely consistent.

He may have a Royal parent(s) but I don't think he will ever be Prince Archie.
