He may only be two months old but Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is already making an impact.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first born child is inspiring parents across the globe to name their own bubs ‘Archie’.

That’s right - the royal’s moniker has been crowned the most popular boys’ name of 2019 so far.

According to Nameberry, the name Archie has attracted 50 per cent more page views than any other name - impressive, considering the seventh in the line to the British throne was only born in May.

Meghan and Harry can’t take all the credit, however, as Archie - which means ‘truly brave’ - was the fastest rising moniker in the US last year and has earned a place in the top 100 in the UK every year since 2000.

Following closely behind Archie in the ranks is Milo, which has roots in both Latin and old German and means either ‘soldier’ or ‘merciful’.

But how are the names of Archie’s royal relatives names faring this year?

Kate Middleton and Prince William’s youngest son Louis - who is Archie’s cousin - also has one of the most-viewed names of the year and currently stands at number 32.

The names Harry and William are currently sitting at 51 and 54 place respectively.

Despite captivating the world with his cheeky antics Prince George’s name was absent from Nameberry’s top 10.
