It looks like we're ahead of the baby naming curve in West Norfolk.

The newest Royal Archie was introduced to the world last week.

The name is expected to soar in popularity after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first child.


In our county we already 9 little Archies born here in 2017.

They joined 2,790 born elsewhere in England and Wales, making Archie the 18th most popular name across the two countries.

Prince Harry and Meghan revealed the name of their first child two days after his birth.

The Duke and Duchess's son arrived last Monday (6th May) at 5.26am, weighing 7lb 3oz.

As is the custom for royal babies, Harry and Meghan will have shared news of their choice with the monarch before releasing it to the public.

Harry said, when announcing the birth, that the baby's late arrival had given them longer to decide on a name.

Archie is a name of German origin and means "genuine", "bold" and "brave".

Short for Archibald, it is now given as a name in its own right.
