    Arthur

    My wife and I are struggling to come up with a boy's name (our son is due in 3 days).

    We like Henry a lot but are worried it's too popular. We thought a "Henry-like" name that wasn't as popular but had the same classic-cool sound was Arthur or Art for short. Our last name is Somers.

    Any thoughts? Good idea? Bad idea?

    I like both Henry and Arthur. I like Arthur marginally better and Art is a cool nn!

    Just a side note... If you go with Arthur make sure you don't use a middle name starting with S to avoid the initials ASS.

    I really love both Henry and Arthur, so I don't think you can go wrong whichever you choose.

    Love Arthur. Don't really like Art though. Another option: Alfred nn Alfie. I like Arthur more than Alfred, but Alfie more than Art. Other ideas
    Edmund, Edwin, Edgar, Oscar, Leopold, Harry, Harvey (not classic but similar to Henry), Vincent
