Meaning:Genuinely bold, brave
The adorable and retro-chic nickname for the Scottish and English Archibald, Archie has officially earned its place as a standalone title. The super posh and stately Archibald comes from the Old High German Ercanbald, which means “genuinely bold, brave.” Famously borne by “America’s typical teenager” from the Archie Comics, Archie has ascended to the throne thanks to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Megan. The royal couple named their baby Archie, establishing the title as the name to pick if you want a vintage, cool-kid name with an air of sophistication. Even if you’re not a fan of the comics or the happenings of the royal family, Archie is the perfect title for a brave little hero.
