Is it Arthur Fowler or trendy now?

Megglevache Tue 23-Sep-08 19:10:32

of course. It's a great name.

I like Art/ie but I am a ponce.

I'm not keen

But who cares? smile

Was on my list, but changed minds last minute and am glad now. Depends on your surname really..

JRocks Tue 23-Sep-08 19:15:44

I like it, but probably wouldn't use it.

compo Tue 23-Sep-08 19:16:28

yes, ds' best friend's brother is Arthur

Love it.
There is an Arthur at DS's nursery. Very cute, suits him.
I liked it for DS2 but DH said NO!

Love it. Would definitely have used it for my dcs except that it doesn't work with our surname.

Well i thought Dudley Moore was a bit wooden in it, but all in all not bad grin

I think it's a lovely name though.

AbbeyA Tue 23-Sep-08 19:23:31

I don't like it.

norkmaiden Tue 23-Sep-08 19:24:14

yes, I love it!

Indith Tue 23-Sep-08 19:26:18

I love Arthur, was on my list for this one but it does funny things to our surname.

Yes, love it!!

Love it. If DD had been a DS, she would have been Arthur. Got mixed reactions from people when we told them this.

rebeccahill Tue 23-Sep-08 20:10:07

Yes, I think it's a brilliant name, and it's hardly used at all. It was my first choice if I had had a son.

My youngest DS is Arthur. Its a lovely name - traditional but not that many of them around at the moment.

It's my son's middle name although if I had another I may be tempted to use it as a first name BECAUSE IT'S A GREAT NAME!

themildmannneredjanitor Sun 28-Sep-08 21:43:25

I wanted to use it for my DS, I think it's lovely.

Szyslak Sun 28-Sep-08 21:44:09


Wanted to use it, vetoed by DH, and 8 years later still wish we had.
