If / when we have a son, my husband wants to name him Archimedes. Believe it or not, this was a compromise - his first choice would be Socrates!

I think it's an amazing name, but I hate the thought of the nickname Archie.

WDYT?

It is really not my style, I'd never use it. I strongly dislike Archie too.

Oh my. If only I could name my children anything and not have to worry!
My kids' would be named like my CAF Family!!!

Archimedes is quite a name to live up to. Tons of teasing factors, but overall I love the idea.

If my family (meaning, IMMEDIATE family, just me, my DF, and our kids) were the only people in the world, I would so give my kids names like Archimedes!

I actually suggested Hypatia and my DF looked at me like I had three heads!

If you really don't want people to call him Archie, use it as a MN and try something else for a FN. Archimedes is so cool though.

Eureka! My son (10) would love it! He just read a book all about Archimedes. I think it's great. Go for it!
