Amy Poehler Had the Sweetest Reaction to the Royal Baby's Name
Archies hold a special place in her heart.
The actress and comedian spoke to PEOPLE Wednesday evening at the New York City premiere of her new comedy Wine Country, where she expressed her appreciation for Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor‘s moniker — no doubt at least in part because Archie is her own 10-year-old son’s name!
“Well, what an exciting day for Archies!” said Poehler, 47. “And isn’t it nice just to hear good news? We’re so desperate for good news.”
The name was somewhat surprising, as British oddsmakers’ top picks for potential names included more traditional monikers, like Arthur, James, Philip, and Albert. In fact, bookies revealed just 60 bets were placed on Archie at 100/1, amounting to exactly $130.

“Queen bans and cancels Netflix subscription at Buckingham Palace,” joked one individual. “After Meghan’s repeated viewing of Riverdale, subconsciously makes her decide on Archie as the child’s name.”
Wine Country — starring an ensemble cast including Poehler’s fellow Saturday Night Live alums Tina Fey, Ana Gasteyer, Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph and Paula Pell — is available to stream Friday on Netflix.
