MrsSprat · 17/06/2008 01:44

I love it! my second fav boys name, my ds is Oscar but i'd love an Arthur.
SummatAndNowt · 17/06/2008 01:48
I like it! Kingly!
NicMac · 17/06/2008 07:05
LGOR - my DS1 is called Oscar and DS3 is named Arthur. Really it was DH's choice but it does suit him! I also have a Hugo
Pollyanna · 17/06/2008 07:06
Yes, really like this too. (if I have another boy, I would campaign for this).
AbbeyA · 17/06/2008 07:07
I don't like it at all. He will grow into it evenTually but it sounds odd on a small DC.

Still a bit Eastenders old bloke who runs off with the Christmas club money for me.
FairyMum · 17/06/2008 07:13

Be careful - it does depend where you live and whether you would mind all his little friends calling him Arfur! My friend's little boy is Ethan - and she gets so stressed out by hearing "Can Efan come to play?" She nearly killed me when my ds wrote "Happy Birfday Efan" in his card!

Great name - very cool, very now. But you do know that it is the name of David Cameron's youngest don't you? A hip young friend of mine named her son Arthur about a month before Mrs Cameron gave birth and was somewhat irked that they chose the same name.

was there not a cat called Arthur that advertised cat food?
philmassive · 17/06/2008 09:26
It's lovely, go for it. It's the name for a quirky little mischief maker. fwiw I've got an Albert and a Henry, so it's right up my street.
MrsPuddleduck · 17/06/2008 09:36
Genuinely love it
LadyThompson · 17/06/2008 12:38
Know one abbreviated to Artie, which is quite cute.
branflake81 · 17/06/2008 12:41
Do not like at all, sorry.
