DH (not British) says Arthur is too English. He likes Welsh names (I am Welsh) and has googled and says Arthwr is a Welsh spelling. It's not one I have ever heard and I think it's pretty obscure...it's a crazy idea right? A small part of me does wonder if it works though, and with Arthur shooting up the popularity charts maybe it would be an idea... After all no one thinks the welsh spellings of Alys and Huw are silly do they?

Please help my pregnancy befuddled brain on this one. Only 4 weeks to go! We have other ideas but none of the welsh ones are really standing out as much as DS1's did, and there aren't any from DH's country that he loves, in fact he hasn't suggested any at all!

Welsh version definitely Arthur (spelt the same but with Welsh U sound, which sounds like ugh).

Welsh boys' names I like:

Llewelyn (nn Llew)
Ifor
Alun
Sion (v common in Wales though)
Ifan
Dewi
Guto (with a ^ over the u)
