Dh and I both love the name Archie, but we dont like Archibald..
I want to have a longer name on the birth cert, but just use Archie as his nn etc (we dont know if this is a boy or not, but we cant decide on a boys name to save us)..
What other names could we use to have the nn Archie..
DS is Oliver, generally being called Ollie or Ol.

I second Archer as the full name, Archie for NN.
Archibald is quite hideous.

I think Archer is a great name, especially if you want Archie as a nickname - perfect!
It also goes great with your DS's name.

If you want a longer name then I would go with Archer.
I have an Archie myself but he is just an Archie.

He he .. our DS2 is Archer. We call him Archer so far, but I won't mind if his school mates end up calling him Archie.

My cousin's cousin (!!??!!) is Arthur and he is called Archie by all. He was named after his uncle (who died young), however it is Arthur on the birth cert. but to everyone he is Archie.
I do like Archer though.
Looking at a name site there is also Archwood, and just Arch as first names (as well as Archer and Archibald). Arch on it's own isn't too bad, and you could use Archie as a nn also.

I have an Archie as well and he's just Archie. He does have a double barrel surname so we thought we'd spare him! Also, I just love the name on it's own and in fact, it looks kind of great on his birth certifcate - something different.
Anyway, just thought I'd share. Some people do ask if he's Archibald and I delight in responding, 'no'!
