"I've seen a ton of misconceptions about the name. I can say as it is my name. The name is of Gaelic Scottish origin, and "Archibald" is not the same as "Archie". Some argue "Archie" is a shortened version then "Archibald", but in my case, the full name is "Archie". The same with Meghan Markle, and Harry's child Archie." Apr. 23, 2020:
