    Bear is cute, but no one except for extreme baby name enthusiasts will understand how you got to it.

    I love both, but slightly prefer Archie. I don't think either is much of a stretch, but then with nicknames, I think pretty much anything goes.

    At the end of the day, you can call him whatever you like. I think Archie is pretty out of the blue, but Bear seems like the sort of family term of endearment you could use for any child, regardless of given name. Arthur is only two syllables, I don't see a burning need for any short version, although terms of endearment will probably arise naturally.

    I like Archie (my Archer would be Archer or Arch) but love the nickname/pet name Bear.

    I would just use Bear as a pet name. Archie from Arthur doesn't make sense as the names are the same length and completely unrelated. Arthur doesn't really need a nickname.
