Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their first child on Monday, May 6 and just two days after, revealed that they'd chosen the name "Archie" for the baby.
However, "Archie" may have come from months before in a funny little interaction between Prince George, Prince William and Kate Middleton's son.
The Sun reported that the little Prince straight up lied to a dog-walker about his name when asking to pet one of her dogs, saying:
"I'm called Archie."

Baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the full name of Duchess Meghan and Duke Harry of Sussex's child, could have very well gotten his first name from George's odd lie.
Or from another famous source:
Riverdale | Official Trailer [HD] | Netflix www.youtube.com
Which is a popular theory amongst denizens of the internet.

As of right now, he is not "Prince" Archie, but will automatically assume the title if and when his grandfather, Prince Charles, becomes king.
