I really like it and think it's a good, solid, masculine name but not sure if I'm brave enough to use it as I'm sure some people will think it's a really odd choice. I'd love to know your immediate and honest first reactions to it. I know I shouldn't be bothered by what other people think but that's how I am...obviously, or I wouldn't be asking for your opinions.
I absolutely love Arthur. In fact I think we are going to use it ourselves for DS1 due in three weeks! BUT - I am having second thoughts simply based on how crazily popular it seems to have become literally in the last few months. I have three facebook friends (who don't know each other) who have all given birth to boys in the last two weeks. Two of them have been called Arthur and one of them is George Arthur. Now I know that is not a very scientific study of the popularity of the name Arthur....but it has freaked me out a bit!
