    I would say probably yes. Can you see and white/silver on the backside of the leaflets. If so, then even more probably yes. Flowers and fruit would give even more clues.

    I am beginning to think that they are Montgomery (Veitchia Arecina)

    The trunk looks very thin for an Archie..but you're in Florida so I guess very fast growers might be like that. If it was in California the trunk would give it away.
    Going to need a closeup..like Dean said,silver undersides is a sure ID.

    The flowers/seeds would be the tell for sure.
