This name is pronounced the same as "harto", which means fed up in Spanish.

Love this sparkier, zippier variant of one of my favourite names - the lovely, gentle Arthur. I'd probably name him Arthur and use Art and Arto as nicknames, but this is one I can definitely see wearing well as it is. It has all the appal of Leo, Milo, Theo and Arlo, but none of the popularity (for now!!)

I like it! Reminds me of Artos the Bear from Sword at Sunset, Rosemary Sutcliff's take on the Arthurian legend. It's a really good book, if you're into that sort of thing at all I highly recommend it.
