Thinking of calling ds2 Archie (would probably go for Archer as full name but call him Archie most of the time)...but was surprised to see Archie was in the top 20 boys names list for England and Wales last year.

Is it mega popular then?

I have never met a baby or toddler Archie round here (London/Kent borders)...

I live in the SE. 4 FB friends who are also in the SE have called their sons Archie over the past 2 years so to me it seems popular.

Quite popular round here, but not as much as it used to be. As I said to someone else, it's being fast replaced in the popularity stakes by Toby, Theo and Reuben.

Popular enough here in SW London.

Three of them in the primary I work in and I'm afraid 2 of them are regularly excluded and the other only stays by the skin of his teeth

I know you're not supposed to say such things but some names do seem to mean trouble. This is a very deprived area though. Maybe middle class Archies are different

Archer is a fab name! I've only come across one in RL, my boss's 15 yo son.

Are you a fan of the series Archer OP? Although that's the main character's surname. He's awesome! grin

I spend a lot of time in Kent and London- I don't know any in Kent, and I know of one in (SW) London. I think you're pretty safe.

Quite popular as a dogs name in our bit of Kent.

Two of them in my DS's nursery class here in Hampshire. 4 yrs old.

I know of 3 born in 2008 and 2 in2009.

Weirdly like the poster above, all of them are 'hard work' and 2 at risk of exclusion from school already.

Think Archie Alfie Ronnie names are quite 'naughty boy' names.. The Ronnie i know is constantly in trouble and had a reputation at age 6.

I don't know why or how this happens with names?

I think these names are the new gary, Wayne, Dwayne type names.
