The new royal baby, Archie, appears on all but a couple of the front pages.

The Mirror, along with the Sun, the Daily Express and the Daily Telegraph offer souvenir editions. By contrast the Daily Star chooses a small inset photo, entitled "Cute baby gets name".

The newborn's name is reported to have caught many by surprise.

The i suggests the bookmakers had been offering odds of 100/1 on Archie.

The Mail's columnist, Richard Kay, welcomes their choice of Archie Harrison. He asks: "Could they possibly have chosen two names less weighted with tradition, less burdened with royal expectation?"

The Mail, Mirror and Sun all list other famous Archies including actor Cary Grant who was born an Archie.

The Washington Post speculates that the main character in the long-established American comic, Archie Comics, that was televised two years ago, was the inspiration.

"Archie Andrews... along with Harry, is one of the most famous redheads, fictional or otherwise, to ever exist," it says.

PM's 'end-game'

Despite the baby celebrations, the prime minister's troubles still receive plenty of coverage.

In its leader comment, it suggests many Conservative backbenchers shared the sentiment of Andrea Jenkyns, who called on her leader to resign during Prime Minister's Questions.

The i suggests a disastrous showing in the European elections could spell the end of her premiership. A cabinet minister told the Mail: "This feel like the end-game. The walls are closing in on her."
