Already have an Edward and am looking for a boys name to go with it. Like Arthur and Henry and keen to know thoughts and other suggestions. Thanks!

Arthur. Could also then be Artie, Art when older.

Love both but Arthur just wins it for me.

Henry. I love it!

They are both fab names. I think Arthur slightly pips because I think Art is cooler on a teen/twenty something than Henry.

Thank you! I do think Arthur slightly has it for me. I just don't really like Art or Artie as nicknames. Although I did read Arto as one on here for Arthur which is quite cute.

Arthur (know a horrid boy called Henry!)

Henry never gets shortened so why shorten Arthur? They are both great names that shouldn't be abbreviated.

I went to school with an Arthur his life was made a misery every day, awful name.

Henry, love it, and also can be Harry, like prince Harry.

Love both but prefer Arthur just because I suggested it to dh for ds's name and he immediately said 'Hoover' that took the shine off of it for me. Arthur is my no1 name on my 'if I ever have another ds' list smile

Arthur - not fond of Henry, sorry.

Where do you live? My DS says "Arfur" accents can make it different. wink
