Arthur for middle name

DH said I had to ask mn as he disagrees with me. DC3 due in 4 weeks.

I think we are sorted if DC3 is a girl but are disagreeing if it's a boy. We both love Arthur but if we put it with our surname I ends up sounds like "half a knot". I think it is fine to go with Hugo Arthur (as people don't really use/even know your middle name anyone once you are older).

DH disagrees as he thinks it will still get called "half a knot" as if Arthur was it's first name.

Sorry hope that actually makes sense ! grin

I find middle names are rarely used 'out loud' so think it would be fine. When you announce the name its Hugo Arthur not Hugo Arthur * Surname * and likewise when he is older he will be Hugo or Hugo * Surname * mostly smile

FIW I LOVE Arthur as a name, and in some ways half a knot wouldn't bother me, it would just make me pronounce Arthur very precisely smile

Thank you.

I agree completely, back to DH persuading tactics now (think they are working) grin

Call him Arthur as the first of two middle names?

So for instance Hugo Arthur James Knott.
