    I am also a huge fan of Arthur! I say, go for it.

    First up there is a huge amount of love for Arthur on nameberry. For my part I don't like it at all it still has the fusty old man image and of course it reminds me of Mr Arthritis, so I can understand the negative feedback but if you love vintage names then this one is a winner.

    That makes sense, I suppose I assumed since lots of old-lady names like Ethel and Mabel and whatnot seem to be coming back into usability that old-man names were too. Although I don't actually know any Arthurs at all myself, which I guess helps me not actually feel it as an old-man name.

    Yeah, I totally get not liking Art or Artie, I'm iffy on them myself. I wonder if I could get away with using something random with an Ar sound, like Arlo or Arby, for a baby Arthur

    I adore Arthur, but I'm really not keen on Artie. Art I can just about handle, having known one (just Art, not Arthur) it makes it seem more wearable to me. Artie just doesn't appeal to me at all. I like Arth and Arthy better, and they feel more instinctive to me.

    It seems to me that naming trends for girls cycle more rapidly than naming trends for boys. Give it 20 years and Arthur will be all the rage. I think people are juuuust now starting to dust it off.

    (I'm pretty certain that Arthur does MUCH better in the UK than other countries, too.)
