I don't hear it. The only time I think it'd be trouble is in class if he gets up to the board. Teacher: "Arthur, write this!" And even then, it's a chuckle at most. I think it's a lovely combo.Name-researcher inside a Greco-Roman framework AKA etymologies-R-US, trying to resurrect a few ancient praenomena and some not-so-ancient favorites, such as:
Ira - Gnaeus - Avner - Bayard - Berenike - FaustFurmom to Euryale and Tiberius.

Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

I'd like to offer a somewhat dissenting voice. I wouldn't worry if this was an issue for a girl, but my DH and father-in-law recently had this whole conversation with me about how boys are way worse/harsher on making fun of their playmates' names than girls are. I don't remember name teasing much (at all?) between girls, but apparently boys take a lot of notice on how a name can make fun of someone according to them. I'm not saying it's a deal killer (esp since I think Arthur is a great name!!), but whenever this kid does something poorly in gym or group sports he might be taunted with "Arthur-Wright-is!" I'm just imagining some really annoying gym classes or recesses in school...
