My 22 yo brother is Archy... But he has always been Arch until recently when he decided to be known as Archer. So could easily go the other way! Btw, I think Archie is a gorgeous name and a super cute spelling!!!

Either option is fine. I have a friend whose son is called Archie as his full first-name. I think it's serious enough for a prime-minister or high court judge. I love the name Archer too. I guess it just depends on what goes best with his surname.
One benefit to calling him Archer is it will give you a 'good' name and a 'bad' name...
"Oh, Archie, you are such a little treasure!"
"Archer. Will you get off that table NOW!"

I love Archer but don't like Archie.
This is what they make me think of:
Archer: https://www.google.com.au/search?hl=...D4yXiQfNnu2_Bg (or similar)
Nerdy dork kid or classic Hollywood gentleman. It's no contest for me!

Just found an Australian source that says Archie was number 31 in 2010. I can live with that! Hahaha. (Archer wasn't in the top 50). My other son's name is from the 30s rank as well!

My son is named Archer I don't like him being called Archie as if I wanted him to be called that I would've named him so. I don't think Archie as a nick name for Archer it's the same amount of letters and it isn't really shortening the name we do call Him Arch though. I was hesitant at first using Archer as it isn't very common but it is a very strong name and will suit him in adult life. I love it now and it suits him. My other son is called Cooper and it's shortened to coops most times.
