Exactly...but when Princess Anne chose an untraditional name for her daughter Zara, who (unlike Master Archie) has no expectation whatsoever of becoming a HRH, she combined it with two very traditional names: Zara Anne Elizabeth.

That I can handle.

Another thing I just thought of. It's surprising this kid is so chill. We KNOW he was a kicker in the womb. Although, as someone said, that was only day 3.

Well, he's already shown his stubborn streak by timing his arrival when it suited him & not when he was expected.

But Princess Anne has never 'played to the gallery' nor [ever] sought to 'rock the boat', unlike [imho] the Sussexes..

You are talking about leaving a warm waterbed for this crazy world. What would you rather?

Is it played to the gallery rocking the boat, or is it simply doing what is comfortable for them? Why is that wrong when it comes to their child, who is unimportant according to many. It's only controversial because people made it to be.

The time of arrival isn't an elective decision [by any baby] rather a hormonal one made by the metabolism of the Mother !

My attitude toward names really makes no sense. If they gave the poor thing an awful name like Egbert, I'd be OK because it's a royal name, but if they give it a perfectly decent name like Jason or Tyler, I'd flip out because they aren't traditionally royal names. Go figure.

I find the idea of naming your child after your pet to be really weird.

It is interesting all the stories people are putting out about why they think Harry & Meghan chose the names Archie Harrison. Some of them are really reaching IMO.

They may be unusual names in the BRF but they don't seem to be unusual in Britain given their popularity rankings.

You should've just went for Eggbert.

I mean, couldn't they have just named him that because they just like the names?

Mike Tindall sais Harry sent a message via WhatsApp to let all the cousins know the baby was born.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/family/l...sapp-fighting/

Also Thomas Markle's 1st ex wife make the cover of the papers. I guess she is interviewed talking about her life with him and how he was an awful husband and father those early years. She was in the papers a few days ago saying how he doesn't know his his other grandkids so he should leave Meghan's son alone.

I guess we will be in for a new round of Markle nonsense because no doubt the Trio will respond. They always do.

Apparently not, there must be some deep, hidden meaning.

Just a reminder: we do not entertain conspiracy theories here at The Royal Forums.
As such, posts theorising on Archie's birth date have been removed and will continue to be removed if they are posted again.

I think the first 2 to 4 weeks they are pretty calm...it's after that you start to get into the lack of sleep issues many parents experience.

That I can handle.
There was a recent article already posted here or in the Gender/Name thread pointing out how Zara was a 'sunrise' baby like Archie, and that Prince Charles (her uncle) suggested the name to Princess Anne because one of the meanings of 'Zara' is (in Greek culture): 'bright as the dawn.' The name also means 'sparkling bright,' 'splendor,' 'blossoming flower,' (Arabic); 'light' (French); 'princess' (Hebrew).

It doesn't matter that Meghan & Harry chose names for their son that many observers feel are 'nontraditional.' The Sussexes have a great deal of freedom to make their own choices regarding the names and lives of their offspring.

No one's life is completely perfect. Everyone has burdens to bear and challenges to face. I think Meghan has gratefully embraced a lot of wonderful blessings, as well as having managed difficult times with amazing grace and a positive attitude.

This is a revealing motto once posted on Meghan's former Instagram: FIND YOUR TRIBE, LOVE THEM HARD

Article in The New York Times, regarding the debut of Archie Harrison:

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/08/w...by-sussex.html

There are lots of interesting and many gracious comments in the comment section.

I guess there was so much talk about "Baby Sussex" being Meghan's child that they wanted to set people straight with "Harrison". It is Harry's son as well as Meghan's!
