From the experts:
Forget Archie Bunker, forget Archie comics, and take a fresh look at this amiably retro nickname name. It's made a big comeback in the UK--where it's now in the Top 20-- and seems destined for stardom here too now that it's been chosen by funny couple Amy Poehler and Will Arnett for their newborn son--though they did put the full name Archibald on the birth certificate.
Archie can be a female nickname name too--Archie Panjabi, who won an Emmy for her role as Kalinda Sharma in "The Good Wife" in 2010, was born Archana.
