If I like Arthur..

I absolutely love it but my husband isn't sold. He also says it "Arfa" 😂
Love the King Arthur connotations, anything history related or Celtic/Scandi as my family are a mix of both, husband is English. Last name is Smith.

Arthur is SO old-fashioned. It's my (late) dad's name, and he was born in 1918.

It's been in the top 10 boys names for the last few years.

ONS data from 2021 has it at 4th

@Allthatglittersisntart yeah he pronounces it Arfa, similarly Harry would be Arry. To be fair in our area, there will be plenty more than just my DH pronouncing it Arfa 😂

My 2 1/2 year old grandson is Arthur and I often call him Arty. He calls himself Haffer.
