Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Were Torn Over Son Archie's First Name

During a conversation with an Invictus Games competitor,
Meghan confessed that she and Prince Harry were torn over what to call their
firstborn – whether they choose Archie or Harrison as the first name.

The couple, who welcomed their little boy on 6 May 2019,
named him Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Sherry McBain, 42, said her wife Mandy brought their little
boy Harrison to a children’s book reading attended by the former actress at the
Invictus Games in The Hague, and the pair got chatting. She told the PA:
“She was like, ‘Harrison, that’s Archie’s middle name’, and Mandy was
like, ‘Yeah, I know.’

“They were just having a chat because Harry and Meghan
couldn’t decide between Archie and Harrison for the first name.”

The name Archie (sometimes used as a shortening of the name
Archibald or Arthur) means true, bold and brave. Meanwhile, Harrison means
“son of Harry,” so its inclusion in Archie’s full name is likely to
have been a tribute to the Duke.

Archie entered the top ten names for boys in England and
Wales for the first time in 2020, according to the latest data from the Office
for National Statistics (ONS). There were 2,944 babies named Archie in 2020, up
from 2,544 in 2019.

In June 2021, the couple welcomed their daughter, Lilibet
‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. Lilibet is the Queen’s family nickname and
the doting parents refer to their daughter as Lili.

Little Lili is the first of the Queen’s great-grandchildren
to be born outside the UK, not to mention the first royal baby who has had the
honour of sharing their first name with her Majesty. Her cousin, Princess
Charlotte, has Elizabeth as the first of her middle names, however, with Diana
as her second.
