Arthur, once the shining head of the Knights of the Round Table, is, after decades of neglect, now being polished up and restored by some stylish parents.
In addition to his leading role in the Arthurian legends, Arthurs figure prominently in The Scarlet Letter, Poe's The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket, and George Eliot's Adam Bede. There are also countless Arthurs in children's literature, movies and TV--including The Fonz. Most recently, Arthur was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Santa in the eponymous movie "Arthur Christmas."
Arthur has many notable namesakes, including playwright Arthur Miller, writer/astronomer Arthur C. Clarke, writers Arthur Conan Doyle, Rimbaud and Koestler, philosopher Schopenhauer, conductor Arthur Fiedler, and tennis great Arthur Ashe, the first African-American to win the U.S. Open. Queen Victoria's seventh child was Prince Arthur.
