"Happy they chose Archie HARRISON Mountbatten-Windsor, but regret not being more specific".

Star Wars star Mark Hamill is one of the many people who have some thoughts about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's adorable name for their newborn son.

She described their son as being "calm" and having the "sweetest temperament".

Prince Harry said: "Everyone says that babies change so much over two weeks we're basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month really".

What's in a (royal baby) name?

Archie may have received a bad rap in the USA thanks to Mr. Bunker, but American drama Riverdale may be bringing the name back into the good graces of the TV-watching public.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pleased to announce they have named their first born child: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor", the new parents wrote on Instagram at the time. For now, Megs and Harry, Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have just stated his name is "Archie", and not revealed whether it's a nickname.

Archie, a name of Germanic origin with meanings that include "genuine", "bold" and "brave", is an increasingly popular baby name in Britain. In the United Kingdom, the most popular name for a boy is Oliver.

Harry cradled his newborn son throughout Archie's first public appearance and admitted it is hard to tell who the baby looks like just yet.

The couple left the photo call to introduce the baby to his great-grandparents, the queen and Prince Philip.

The Duchess added: "It's magic, it's pretty unbelievable". "I know it's unfair to keep perpetuating these images of post-birth glamour and beauty, but here's a photo of me two days after my baby's birth past year".

And while Harry held on tight to the infant, whose name has yet to be announced, Meghan was glowing in a white double-breasted dress and a pair of nude pumps.

Celebrating the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, they had sent gifts for the newly-weds.

Unfortunately, it appears that we'll have to go without a member of the royal family being named in honor of a Southside Serpent or Kevin, but the announcement did reach the ears of Archie Comics.
