In the afternoon of May 8, the Sussex couple introduced their bundle of joy to the world. Before making a debut in St. George's Hall at Windsor Castle, he had first met his granny, the Queen of Britain. The press inquired about him and the proud mother gushed with pure bliss, saying:

It's magic. I have two of the best guys in the world [Prince Harry and their baby]. [Our son] has the sweetest temperament.

Name reveal

The same day, the Sussex couple finally disclosed their son's name. Decidedly, their first-born will be called Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Archie means the one who is genuine or brave. It is more British than American and is derived from the early version, Archibald. It's quite an unexpected choice as this name can't be counted as a traditional royal name.

Archie could have become the Earl of Dumbarton that happens to be one of Harry's subsidiary titles. He could even be referred Archie Mountbatten-Windsor. Despite all these options, he'd just be Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor. This gesture strongly indicates that little Archie won't be brought up as a formal royal.

People are in love with him and his name already

Did you find Sussex baby's name impressive? Or maybe they should've stuck with the conventional ones? Nonetheless, his adorable tiny self will carry it well and is bound to receive infinite love. Share this and blow a kiss to the little royal.
