So the new Royal has been born.

Thoughts on the name?

I think Archie is a cute name. I was surprised that that's what they chose though as royals often choose very traditional names like Harry, William, Elizabeth, Charlotte, Arthur, John, Richard, etc. But I like that Harry and Meghan are breaking the mold a bit.

I don't like it at all. It's a very WASP name and although they aren't Roman Catholic, they don't embrace the WASP. I just can't see how Queen Elizabeth was even okay with it. Then again, she eliminated the rule that forces someone in line to abicate their position if marrying someone who ism't a noble or is Roman Catholic. If that rule was still in place, then there wouldn't be a future potential king named Archie. Of course, something terrible would have to happen to George, Charlotte, their brother whose name I can't remember.

I actually like the name. I've heard it's a pretty popular name in their area too.

I don't love it, but it's kind of cute and he's not my child. We do share a birthday though. I feel the same way about George and Louis. I think it's more common in the UK..
