Our first choice boys name is now off the cards - can't think of back up !

Our first choice was Arthur.
I didn't think it was that popular but both my sister and SIL are due before me.
SIL gave birth over Christmas and named hers Arthur and have just found out that sisters first choice is Arthur too 😂

So we need a backup and we just can't think of any.

Both DP and I previously liked Magnus and also Henry but we have reservations on both of those.

Please help!

Henry and Alexander are pretty popular-not sure if that bothers you. I love Seth!

Arthur is a lovely name but has had to come out of our top choices for similar reasons. Our others are:

Theodore
Henry
Alfred
Albert
Felix
George

Any of those any good?

Don't see any reason why you can't still use Arthur.

3 Arthurs in one family... that is a hit much, I agree.

I have to say, Arthur said by anyone under 10 is usually Arfa as well. So all of school they would be Arfa not Arthur

Arthur was at the top of our list but we have a very common surname and it is popular so we opted for Edward with Atlas as a middle name (we weren't brave enough to use it as a first name).

Edmund. Similar vibe to Arthur, well, it has that interesting 'u' in it.

Albert / Albie?
