Royal baby meaning: Why Meghan Markle and Prince Harry chose Archie

Archie Mountbatten-Windsor

The Royal couple debuted Baby Archie to the world and to Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday, after which they revealed his full name: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. As for his surname, Mountbatten-Windsor, the name is given to descendants of the Queen and Prince Philip, to distinguish them from the rest of the royal family.

"The strongest chart connections are between Archie and Harry - he is a chip off the old block, Harry's block that is", astrologer Penny Thornton tells PEOPLE, adding: "In his firstborn child, Harry has found another soulmate".

Royal expert Marlene Koenig explained to Time that Archie's status is likely because Harry and Meghan want a normal life for their children.

Choosing a name from the royal family's list of legendary members of also a must.

One wrote: "Meghan's real name is Rachel and Archie is a very close acronyms of her name - so he really is Rachel and Harry's son".

"First, Prince George came along, then Princess Charlotte - which we thought was just a coincidence", she said.

Harry and Meghan's choice of the name Archie surprised royal watchers and oddsmakers alike.

There is a path where Archie could gain the title of prince after his grandfather, Prince Charles, ascends to the throne. As we know from Harry's meeting with the press (via Sky News), their kiddo was "a little bit overdue", so Meghan may have been taking every caution regarding her baby's impending arrival. Indeed, a look at our infographic shows that over the past 100 years, neither of the baby's first names has been given to a royal.

While she explains she is not planning to have more children, she admits they would name him or her Freddie or Lucy. Six-months pregnant at the time, Meghan spent the day with staff and volunteers as she toured the facility. The middle name Harrison means "son of Harry".

"We saw it in the wedding in comparison to William and Kate, we have seen it again with this royal birth".

The name was not on the list of any bookmakers but that was what the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry opted for.

As noted by SheKnows, if Archie was actually born two weeks before his introduction at Windsor Castle's St. George's Hall, he could've been brought into the world around Easter Sunday, April 21.
