    Arthur?

    DH mentioned liking Arthur a while ago and while I don't like it as a first name I could live with it as a middle name. Other combos we have are Isaac Gawain, James Thorbjørn and Marcus Drake. Any first name ideas?

    Another possible middle name would be Gareth. Would Gawain, Gareth and Arthur be an obvious (if accidental) theme?

    Isaac
    or

    I do think Gareth, Gawain, and Arthur would make a pretty obvious theme, but as middle names (not firsts), I actually really like it.

    I think Gawain and Gareth are much too close. Arthur is nice, if not a bit nerdy sounding...

    I've always loved Arthurian legends. Gawain was my favorite by far but I never mentioned it to DH. I did however suggest Gareth. That's when he said he liked Gawain. I have no problem using them both (they're brothers anyway) but with Arthur I was afraid it was too much.

    Its actually the nerdiness of it that's growing on me. Simon and Isaiah (my two favorite names) have the same feel to me as Arthur.
