I'm so sorry about your father. Your experience with your dad sounds much like what it was with my grandmother in 2010 just before she passed--she was diagnosed with lung cancer (that eventually metastasized to her pancreas), and it was just a really sad situation. She had been living with my cousin, but his wife really hated my grandmother, I think, and refused to feed her, and she was pretty much starving to death. So we brought her to my house, and while I loved that I got closure with her and got to spend more time with her... I was also with her when she died. Which is still such a hard thing to remember. It's so hard to watch someone you love die like that. I'm just glad she's not suffering anymore.
Arthur Rigby sounds like a great way to honor him, and the nn Bear is so cute! I love it. In general, I like Espen more, but I feel like many people are going to think you're hardcore ESPN fans. I think Arthur Rigby works much better in general.
Can I ask what your son's name is? Maybe the nn Bear goes better with it than Arthur in full does?Ashley | namenerd | Christian | storyteller

Sorry to hear this! I'm with everyone else, in that I think honoring your father is the way to go, and Arthur just so happens to be a fantastic name anyway. I do like your idea of Rigby Arthur though, not so much because of the r's running into each other the other way around (Arthur Rigby)--that actually doesn't even bother me--but more because then you get to keep Asher Boone!
All the best to you and your dad.Esme Cordelia | Etta Rosemary | Fiona Elspeth | Matilda Hazel | Phoebe Kerensa | Rosalie Fern | Thea Marigold | Zara Madeleine
