Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have finally revealed the name of their son - Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

But it seems like Prince George could have inspired part of the newborn's name months ago after bumping into a member of the public while on a country dog walk with his sister, Princess Charlotte, and his grandma, Carole Middleton in Berkshire.

Archie would have been given the title The Earl of Dumbarton, or Lord Dumbarton, as the eldest son of Prince Harry had Harry and Meghan consented.

When asked to describe her baby boy to the world, she said "he has the sweetest temperament". Now 7-weeks-old, Archie will be looking for a royal household of his own in the near future. But, if some speculation on the internet is to be believed, little Archie may have actually been born two weeks earlier.

The CW show tweeted their joy at the baby name, with a picture of Archie, played by KJ Apa, writing, "Proud to be Archie". It is a more popular name in Prince Harry's native UK, than Meghan's U.S.; in the UK, Archie is the 18th most popular boy's name and in the United States it doesn't make the top 1,000.

The parents' happiness was apparent, as Harry -with a huge smile on his face- held the sleeping baby while Meghan lovingly looked on.

Archie, a name of Germanic origin with meanings that include "genuine", "bold" and "brave", is an increasingly popular baby name in Britain.

"They go to regular schools, yes, they go horse riding with the Queen and of course, they are royal children, but they enjoy a life away from the spotlight and I think that's really what Harry aspires to", she said. "It's only been what two-and-a-half days, three days but we're just so thrilled". Fortunately the necklace has since been restocked, and fans of Meghan's favorite accessory brand can purchase similar Jennifer Meyer designs on sites like Barney's and Net-a-porter.

The royal's decision to wear a suit is more formal than the casual sweater and jeans his brother, Prince William, has worn to introduce the world to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
