Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have revealed the name of their sweet baby boy: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. For months, people have been speculating about what the baby's name would be — would it be Arthur? Alice? — and now that he's finally named, we're in love with the meaning behind both his first and middle names.
The Meaning of the Name Archie
Aside from being the name of one of the most famous comic book characters (who, fittingly, is a redhead like Prince Harry), Archie has deeper meaning. According to Nameberry, Archie — a variation of the name Archibald, which means "very bold" and has an English origin — means "truly brave." Although it's of German origin, it's often seen at the top of British baby name charts. And my goodness, it's supercute.
The Meaning of the Name Harrison
Perhaps the sweetest part of the baby boy's name is his middle name — Harrison literally means "son of Harry." Harrison is of English origin and was ranked 113 on Nameberry's popularity charts in 2017.
Since welcoming their baby boy on May 6, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex seem completely smitten with their son. "It's magic, it's pretty amazing," Meghan told the press of her first few days of parenting. Harry added: "Parenting is amazing. It's only been two-and-a-half days, three days, but we're just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy."
